Indonesian Christian Governor Trial Concerns Christians
The current outcome of the trial for Indonesian Christian Chinese Governor Ahok has many Indonesian Christians concerned.
The World View spoke to Daniel Harris with International Christian Cocern in Southeast Asia, about how this case could affect Indonesian Christians in a negative way. He said that if Governor Ahok is condemned it could mean greater persecution for the Christians there.
Harris said that the biggest force against the Chinese governor is a hard line Muslim group called the Islamic Defenders Front, known as the FPI.
“This conservative hard-line group. It becomes a very grave political situation, because this FPI group is the group that has organized these massive protests that have attracted up to 200,000 to Jakarta last year, against Ahok, calling for his imprisonment, calling for him to step down.”
Christ says, “You will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

Fox & Friends Investigates Claim That Obama Wire Tapped Trump Tower During Election
President Donald Trump made a series of tweets on Saturday, accusing former President Barack Obama of wiretapping the Trump Tower before his election victory last year. A spokesperson for Obama denied the claim later that day.
However, on yesterday’s edition of ‘Fox & Friends’, radio host Mark Levin discussed the evidence backing up President Trump’s claim that someone from the Obama administration was spying on Trump before the inauguration.
“The evidence is overwhelming. This is not about President Trump’s tweeting. This is about the Obama administration spying, and the question is not whether it spied. We know they went to the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ] court twice. The question is who they did spy on and the extent of the spying that is the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, Trump surrogates…
“They were so aggressive, they waited four or five months, they go back in October, weeks before the general election, they narrow their request, all of the sudden we have leaks coming out on Flynn. Then we have a ‘Oh horrible’ meeting that took place between Sessions and so forth. And I’m telling you as a former chief of staff to a United States attorney general in the Reagan administration, these are police state tactics.”
