judulnya bagus juga ,ide kreatif saya salut
Dasar kepercayaan iman muslim dibangun diatas dusta,kebohongan dan teror
pembunuhan yang biadab dimana saat zaman dan waktu sudah berubah kebenaran yang
ada diungkapkan dan tidak bisa dihalangi ataupun dibendung serta kejahatan
pembunuhan sudah dapat diantisipasi dan diminimalkan maka saat itu juga ambang
kehancuran islam akan terjadi dan pada saatnya islam akan lenyap dan ini pasti

When the cross and the crescent clash on the web

The heated debate between the two faiths, whose followers now account for half
of the world's population, is not only ancient, but also a global digital
phenomenon. One can easily find apologetic sites such as answeringislam. com or
answeringchristiani ty.com on the web.
Interestingly, one will find it difficult to trace similar sites by the
followers of other faiths such as Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism.
Indonesia Faithfreedom. Org, which is linked to the popular anti-Islam website
Faith Freedom International, is one Indonesian language site that belligerently
posts offensive articles on Islam.
A number of local Muslim bloggers have created sites to counter the site's
accusations, some of which are no less hostile than the site they combat.
Blogging is nearly as easy as writing a diary on which almost every subject is
permissible, breaking all the social taboos of the offline world: A high school
student and an overseas PhD candidate have the same opportunity to speak their
This condition paves the way for an open debate between Muslims and Christians,
which is no longer exclusively practiced by theologians and religious scholars.
Saints or bigots, the learned or the laity, they are all allowed to join the

Irwan, who chooses to remain anonymous when blogging from his Blackberry, said
he had lost interest in discussing theology on the Internet.
"Being anonymous, people can express their ideas more freely, but they can also
commit acts of cowardice. They just do not respect the opinions of other
people," he told The Jakarta Post.
Instead of achieving a mutual understanding, he said, a number of religious
blogs have been filled by hate speeches and the comment forums have turned into
a warfare where the so-called believers can cowardly cast aspersions against
"From my experience, it is more effective if we have a face-to-face dialogue,"
The concept of the Trinity is apparently too subtle to grasp for a young Muslim
blogger who neither reads the Bible in its original languages (Hebrew and
Greek), nor is trained in philosophy and the methods of multilayered exegesis
of the Scriptures.
Meanwhile, Christians can easily find references on the ugly faces of Islam to
verbally attack the religion.
Catholic priest Beni Susetyo said he did not consider the intense religious and
theological debates on the net as positive, and refused to regard it as a form
of "interfaith dialogue".
"They are mostly people who have a narrow understanding of religion. They think
other people are their competitors. What they say is nothing but rubbish," he
With the enactment of the new cyber law and the recent blocking of YouTube and
a number of sites by the government following the Fitna controversy, the
question arises whether offensive sites should also be blocked; something that
bloggers in general are now fearing.
A lecturer on communication studies at the University of Indonesia, Ade
Armando, said the existence of such provocative religious sites was inevitable
as the Internet provided almost absolute freedom to its users.
"We cannot let the state interfere," he said, adding that "for good reasons,
freedom on the web should be upheld and supported."
He argued that not all religious bloggers were zealots and provocative, and a
blogger named Ahmad was not necessarily a Muslim nor did he represent Islam.
"The bloggers have their own code of ethics and this matter is actually very
much related to their conscience," said Armando, now editor in chief of Islamic
A blogger who uses the pseudonym Danalingga writes on his blog that posting and
discussing religious matters is a good thing, but that bloggers must have the
right attitude; that the opinions of others could be right or wrong.
Both Armando and Susetyo believe the impact of sites containing hate speeches
will not affect the coexistence of Christian and Muslim communities, because
the number of people who have access to the internet in Indonesia is
The number of bloggers, however, continue to increase in line with the growing
information and technology industry. According to Blogspot profiles, there are
at least 600 new Indonesian bloggers per day.
In addition to international weblog providers such as Blogspot, Wordpress,
Multiply, Facebook and MySpace, a local weblog provider, Dagdigdug.com, has
recently been launched to lure new local bloggers.
