Snouts in the trough in Aceh
It’s been reported that a Christian missionary organisation based in Virginia have relocated 300 Acehnese orphans to a Christian home in Jakarta:
The appeal said WorldHelp was working with native-born Christians in Indonesia who want to “plant Christian principles as early as possible” in the 300 Muslim children, all younger than 12, who lost their parents in the tsunami. “These children are homeless, destitute, traumatized, orphaned, with nowhere to go, nowhere to sleep and nothing to eat. If we can place them in a Christian children’s home, their faith in Christ could become the foothold to reach the Aceh people,” it said.

Update: al-hamdu lillah, the group has dropped the idea after the Indonesian government blocked their plans (story here at Wired News).
