Subject: Stop Jailings of Indonesian Christians

Dear [Your Congressman/Senator Inserted Here]

This petition requests that a congressional resolution be passed demanding that President Barack Obama address the persecution of Christians in Indonesia, the nation where he lived and was educated as a boy. Christians Kashfi Rosyid and Jalaudin were arrested on March 20th in the city of Sukabumi in West Java province after an angry mob of some 200 Muslims reportedly attacked their home. They were accused of evangelism and have been sentenced to three years in jail each. Rosyid’s family has been chased out of their village while Jalaudin’s family has fled West Java.

President Barack Obama made this statement during a visit to Indonesia in 2010: "But even as this land of my youth has changed in so many ways, those things that I learned to love about Indonesia -- that spirit of tolerance that is written into your constitution, symbolized in your mosques and churches and temples standing alongside each other; that spirit that is embodied in your people -- that still lives on." If President Obama believes this statement he should call for the release of Christians Kashfi Rosyid and Jalaudin as well as other jailed Christians in Indonesia.

We therefore call upon the Congress of the United States to pass a resolution in both the House and Senate calling upon President Barack Obama to use his influence as President and as a friend of Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to request that the Indonesian leader order the immediate release of all Christians jailed for "evangelism" and to protect religious minorities and uphold their right of religious freedom.
