Why are they feeling so insecure?

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 8 — A city church in the leafy Desa Melawati suburb was set on fire at midnight as police warned angry Muslim groups not to protest a controversial ruling allowing Catholic weekly Herald to use “Allah” in its national language section. more
It happened. I was kinda expecting it. Why are they doing such terrible act?

As a Christian, do I feel upset on this?
Yes, because I'm still a human being.

Why am I upset? Is it because of the burnt church?
No, the church is nothing more than just a building build by man as a place for worshiping Him. I'm upset to those irresponsible people who did such an act.
I'm upset to those politicians whom exploit this issue to such extent.

Should I do something to defend my religion from such act?
No, because the God I worship can defend Him Self.

I call to all Christian in Malaysia. Pray. Don't fall to the same act as they are for our God need no help from us, it is us who need help from Him. Yes, we might feel angry, but don't let our anger cause us to sin. Forgive our enemies.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good (Romans 12:17-21).
God Bless...
