From Yahoo! Indonesia:
Jesus’ Image Found Inside Muslim’s Pilgrimage Guide Book
The Ministry of Religious Affairs Office in Bengkulu city found Jesus’ picture inside a Muslim pilgrimage guidebook. The image was found when some pilgrims were performing their religion rituals.
“Inside the book, there is a picture of Jesus as a shepherd herding the sheep,” said one of the participants, Menasik Yusrati. She suspected that foul play was involved in this pilgrimage guide book. “There is no way that this picture could appear suddenly out of nowhere,” she said.
Yusrati explained, the pilgrimage guidebook should only contain religious prayers, Dhikr and frequently asked questions by pilgrims. However, there is one page that has a picture of Jesus attached. In the picture, Jesus is depicted as a shepherd, herding his sheep and. “Jesus, the good shepherd” is written underneath the picture.
In regards to the picture, Head of the Pilgrimage Ministry in Bengkulu, Efendi Joni explained that the guidebook was obtained from the Directorate General for Religion Ministry of the Republic Indonesia.
“That book will be returned to the directorate to be investigated further,” said Effendi. He is worried that this picture might lead to further conflicts between religions.
According to Efendi, after checking 280 guidebooks which were already distributed to other pilgrims, the religion ministry employees only found one guidebook that contained the picture in question.

Someone who slipped the picture is trying to adu domba!
BEWARE OF ADU DOMBA FROM CERTAIN PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIKE MUSLIMS LIVING IN HARMONY SIDE-BY-SIDE WITH CHRISTIANS!
There is always an unanswered question for Muslims, “Why is there not even one developed Muslim country in the world?”…

We, as Muslims, do not chase after the material world but we try to lead a more meaningful afterlife. This world is only temporary. We are different from people like you who are ambitious and glorify the world too much.
I FOUND CHRISTIAN BIBLE VERSE WHICH IS SAYING THAT WE CAN’T CONSUME PORK [SIMILAR TO MUSLIMS]. IS THERE AN ATHEIST AROUND TO EXPLAIN THIS?
[Leviticus 11:7] The pig, though it has a split hoof completely divided, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you.
[Deuteronomy 14:8] The pig is also unclean; although it has a split hoof, it does not chew the cud. You are not to eat their meat or touch their carcasses.

They say the Word of God is only found in the New Testament section. The Old Testament [Levictus and Deuteronomy] are not the Word of God (St. Paul said so).
Do not be provoked by some irresponsible people!
Let’s not be too concerned about this book anymore! It’s only one single book anyway so just return it back.

It’s indeed only one book but its severe consequences are already widespread …… Should we investigate more to find out whether this is a human error or it’s a SIGN?
Monyet Kasih-an: (replying to Sofyan)
It’s a sign that Jesus is helpless and can only insert a picture [of himself] into a Muslim pilgrimage book so he can also embark on the pilgrimage journey.
I can’t sleep so I read Yahoo news… but unfortunately the news are all about people fighting with each other… geez…
LUCKILY PIG MEAT CANNOT BE CONSUMED BY CAMEL PEOPLE [MUSLIMS] … OTHERWISE THE PRICE OF PIG MEAT WOULD SHOOT UP RIGHT AWAY…. HAHAHHAHA

The people who eat pork are Jew’s SLAVES only since Jews don’t eat pork.
Pork meat is only fed to Jew’s dogs and the Christian people
When a Jesus picture appears, you guys fight!! When a Muhammad picture appears, you guys also fight! So what do you guys want anyway? This is the sign of the end of the world, bro!!
What do you think? Do you think this was an attempt by someone to provoke further hostilities between the religions?
