    West Java – Bigots in A Tizzy Over Talk of Tolerance! 

    I see from the Jakarta Globe that the notorious Governor Heryawan, the man who said the problem with the Ahmadi minority would disappear if they disappeared, is joining a fanatic rally in Bandung this weekend.

    Their get-together is inspired by fears that Islam may be attacked by heresy!”




    That gem of irrationality comes from a certain Abu Muas, who runs the bigot outfit behind Sunday’s event, called the Anti-Shia Alliance.

    The fact that over 90% of Indonesian Muslims are Sunnis is evidently not reassurance enough for Muas, nor for Heryawan, nor even for that other notable Cholil Ridwan. He’s a senior officer in the state-funded MUI.




    • It’s hard to say which of those men is the more frightful.

    Heryawan is a leading light of the PKS Party, which is regarded as the Indonesian equivalent of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Cholil is best remembered on RRA for his demand that the mentally retarded man who had sex with a horse be stoned to death. 

    Who’s Worse? Retard Screws Horse, Top ‘Scholar’ Wants Him Stoned to Death! 

    And as the JP notes, the MUI high-up has been outspoken in his support for hard-line groups like the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), which has a history of attacks against Ahmadiyah, Shiite and Christian communities.





    Frankly, I have no more time for bestiality than I do for homosexuality.

    But fornication with a cow might be considered only marginally more abhorrent than being embraced by a hateful fiend like Abu Bakr Ba’asyir (currently in priosn for terrorist offences) as Cholil is seen in the photo above.


    Interestingly, the JG says some observers reckon the jihadist knees-up is a knee-jerk reaction to the very real possibility that Jalaluddin Rakhmat, a Shiite candidate in last week’s legislative election, could win a seat at the House of Representatives and may even be considered for the post of religious affairs minister.


    That would be a vast improvement on the incumbent, Suryadharma Ali!

    No disrespect to Pak Jalaluddin, but my cat would be a vast improvement on Ali too!  It’s hard to write about this without getting mad. 

    If Jokowi were to win the Presidential election and appoint ANY member of, not just a minority faith, but one that has been actively persecuted with the barely concealed approval of members of the present Cabinet…


    Indonesia’s tattered international reputation would be on the mend almost overnight.

    Just Another Magic Wednesday! 

    Just watched a top-notch thriller dvd, ‘The Call,’ starring Halle Berry and a young star I hadn’t seen before, Abigail Breslin.



    It’s basically a kidnap drama, but exciting as few are, with a VERY shock ending.

    Halle looks as good as ever, but not sexy, as it isn’t that kind of film.

    Abigail too tends to look a bit worse for wear, being the kidap victim, which is a pity, as – see the photo- she is a cutie!



    A nice way to round off a pleasant day, which began mid-morning with a pleasant  visitor. 

    Tomorrow I must get going mid-arvo, things to do in town then a some serious socialising, and later – who knows?



    pasar rumput Pasar Rumput by day – it gets lively at night!


    I haven’t been up to Pasar Rumput for the dangdut for a while, but have heard there are some places in Kota worth a visit.

    .Friday will therefore be a non-day   -just as well it’s a holiday!

    But then since I have no work to attend – today, or tomorrow, never mind Friday, I can please myself.

    This retirement caper has a certain joyful novelty which does not seem to wear off!

    God Save The Queen – God Damn John Major! 

    Further to our last discussion of Murder Inc McGuinness …. 

    “Arrest ‘Murder Inc.’ McGuinness,” As Blood-Beast Dines With HM! 

    …somebody sent me a link which goes into more detail on the evil IRA brute’s record, and how Major and other UK politicians successfully interfered to prevent justice being done.


    amajor Major, the Moral Retard


    I really shouldn’t devote too much time to these matters, as the more I contemplate the absolute criminal wickedness of John Major and Patrick Mayhew and their successors – and by that I most definitely include Bliar and Hain – the less I enjoy the everyday good things of life in Jakarta.

    Sunshine and smiles and all the rich reality of life – here or anywhere – need to be savoured.




    But we should never forget those to whom they have ben denied forever, the victims of the SinnFein/IRA scum, directed by fiends like Martin McGuinness, who – thanks to treason in high places – has shaken hands with Her Majesty and sat with the ‘the great and good’ (what a misleading description of the British Establishment!) this very month.  

    In 1993, The Cook Report investigated a number of murders in which McGuinness was personally involved.  Among them was the case of Frank Hegarty, whom McGuinness lured back from England in 1987. ‘Don’t worry — I’ll bring him home to you,’ McGuinness had sworn to his mother.  When he returned to Ireland Hegarty was interrogated and shot, his body subsequently found bound and blindfolded.



    In the wake of that documentary, the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) set up a secret unit to investigate the charges. By late 1994 it had located at least three witnesses willing to testify to McGuinness’s involvement in the killing of Hegarty, among others. The RUC investigation was codenamed ‘Operation Taurus’.

    But while the painstaking investigation was going on, another process was at work. John Major’s government was in talks with Sinn Fein/IRA. The results of Operation Taurus were sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions who, in a move that startled those involved, reported back that there was not a case. As one of those involved in the investigation drily remarked, this decision surely had nothing to do with ‘the incipient peace process.’



    Nor of course was the murder mentioned the only one to which this SOB was linked.


    though McGuinness was named at the Smithwick Tribunal as having authorised the murder plot in which senior police officers Breen and Buchanan died, Stormont slumbers on immune from the obvious implications.



    Harry Breen and Robert Buchanan -Victims of a Cowardly Provo Hit 

    Murder-Gangster McGuinness – Sinn Fein Speaker Colludes in Cover-Up! 


    And just to underline the point, I add one more paragraph from the piece I quoted to begin with.

     Sinn Fein/IRA were aware of the investigation. The delegation told Downing Street that they would not attend talks without McGuinness and that he would not attend if the threat of prosecution hung over him. As a result, John Major’s government ordered that the relevant files should be ‘disappeared’. Which they duly were.’


    god of hellfire


    It would be nice to believe that somehow the heinous offences of Major and his quisling comrades will eventually be brought before a court of law, but I fear that will take place not in this world but the next.

    Jakarta International School – Nothing To Say On ‘Child-Rape’ Investigation? 

    I  -like anyone  who’s ever had kids- was horrified to read the reports of a six-year-old boy allegedly raped by employees at ‘a well-known international school’ in Jakarta.

    • ——————–
    • If these crimes are proven, anyone found guilty deserves every possible punishment the law prescribes.

    Death, I’d say, would be appropriate, but…-

    A    the law does not prescribe that


    B    the British Embassy’s flunkeys would be up in arms.

    European Union policy is to safeguard child-rapists as well as terrorists from capital punishment.

    But the case is still under investigation. And there appears to be a division of opinion among media management as to whether the school should be named.



    The Jakarta Post declined to do so, saying this was to protect the identity of the victim.

    But on at least one TV channel last night, the cameras showed clearly which school it was.

    And today’s Jakarta Globe blew away the smoke-screen with these words. 

    Meanwhile, the Jakarta International School has not released any statements regarding the case, though it has beefed up security surrounding its Pondok Indah and Cilandak campuses, denying entrance to reporters.

    Alarmingly, cops think there could be more than one victim. “We are now reviewing the behavior of other staff members there [at the school]. We are investigating the possibility of more victims,” Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Rikwanto said on Tuesday.



    You send your children off to school and take it for granted that every possible care will be taken to ensure their safety..

    To be fair to JIS, when I went to see some people there a few years ago, it was like getting into Fort Knox.  But when there’s an enemy within, what can a school do?

     Nevertheless, when something like this happens, silence is not an appropriate response, in my humble opinion.


    PS – It’s 4.30pm and I just heard on SCTV the spokesman for JIS pledging full cooperation with the authorities on this case -good! I would have expected no less!

    • JazPen 5:57 pm on April 16, 2014 Permalink | Reply

      I was as horrified as you and everyone else, Ross, and I am relieved to see your PS that the JIS bosses finally got a grip and made that statement.
      Better late than never.
      This morning I read in the Jakarta Post that “the closest thing to a response from [the school] was that it sent a letter to the parents of all students from kindergarten to high school saying that more safety precautions would be taken, however they did not directly mention the case.”

      First thing I wouldve done would be a short to the point press release, saying they were shocked and doing everything they could.
      Why did it take them so long?

    A Dream Act to Follow – Poor Little Fathi! 

    Fathi entered the United States in 2008 on a student visa that expired in 2009 after he failed all the classes he had enrolled in at Virginia International University, according to court papers.



    He had been preparing an asylum application but told a friend in a conversation recorded by the FBI that he had constructed a false history of abuse for political dissent in his native country to justify that bid.

    One of Barack’s poor persecuted illegals, desperate for amnesty!




    Except he was also desperate to blow up various buildings in America too, according to the FBI, and he’s currently facing charges in Connecticut!

    Pinko Press Escalates UKIP ‘News’ Nonsense! 

    Nigel Farage fatigue? Half of voters ‘immune’ to Ukip’s appeal

     Britain’s left-lib media – losing it!
    I must admit when I read the Independent’s drooling headline, I figured they must have really got UKIP between a rock and a hard place,
     Nor did their follow-on gloat disabuse me of that notion.

    Findings will act as a reality check for Ukip which has ridden a wave of popular support over the last 18 months

    More than half the electorate remains resolutely immune to the appeal of the UK Independence Party and has no intention of supporting it, according to a new survey.

    • liberal-media-bias
    • And this is NEWS?

    If Mr. Morris studies the results of the last ten, or twenty, or more, maybe, General Elections, he will quickly catch on to the fact that neither Tories, Labour, nor Libs have  EVER won the support of more than half the electorate. British Governments are usually formed by parties with something between 35 and 45 percent of the electorate. 

    But let’s keep reading.

    Morris is scribbling and scrabbling for a ray of hope among the results of a ComRes poll for his own newspaper, which must be galling – if it were an Expess or Telegraph survey, he could dismiss unpalatable findings nore easily.







    But it’s The Independent’s, so he has to spin with superhuman effort, and by God he does!

    The Independent found 51 per cent of voters did not believe Nigel Farage’s party offered a “realistic political vision”, while 54 per cent said they were not attracted by Ukip’s plain-speaking style.


    So do the sceptical 54%  prefer politicians who pull their punches. What of the (so-far unrevealed) percentage who DO believe UKIP offers realistic political vision?

    As noted already, even less than forty percent COULD be enough to put Farage in Number Ten – the math ain’t tough on a non-proportional reprentation system!

    UKIP on 31, Tory on 30, Labour  on 30, Libdem on 9.  Not every seat would go like that, but plenty might. 

    What percent of the vote did Cameron, or Blair, or most PMs attain in my lifetime.

    CERTAINLY under 50%.

    Yet somehow the findings will act as a reality check for Ukip?

    What’s this Morris on?

    He acknowedges that UKIP is battling it out with Labour for first place in the European parliamentary elections.

    And that the Brits who watched that TV debate reckon Nigel  easily “won.”

    Incidentally, why does Morris put ‘won‘ in inverted commas? Mr. Farage did win, according to EVERY poll.

    But never mind, let’s keep searching for gems amid the dross.

    However, despite the recent surge in the anti-EU party’s popularity, less than one third (32 per cent) of the public believed it offered a “realistic alternative political vision of Britain…”

    Right, there ya go, Nigel! You might as well pack up and go home.


    And then Morris comes back to that bizarre statistic

    One third of voters (33 per cent) said they were attracted to Ukip “because they say what they think” with more than half (54 per cent) disagreeing.

    So WHAT does that mean…if anything? Does it mean they don’t like people who say what they think? Does it mean they don’t believe that Farage and Co. say what they think? Do they like Dave n Ed better because they know Dave n Ed rarely say what they really think?

    Ambiguous questions get similar answers.

    Like this one, too!

    Overall the electorate is divided on whether Ukip is a party of the far right, with 40 per cent agreeing and 38 per cent disagreeing….

    What does far right mean?


    • ………………………..
    • Believing in capital punishment, like most Brits?
    • Believing that men are meant to marry women? EVERYBODY believed that till just a few years ago.
    • Believing that each nation has the right to rule itself? I thought that was somewhere in the UN Charter?

    Morris saves the best UKIP stat for the last!


    • putin35portrait
    • 000000000000
    • The suggestion that Mr Farage is a danger to Britain – an accusation levelled by opponents after he expressed admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s leadership skills – is dismissed by voters by a majority of two to one (49 per cent to 24 per cent), with the remaining 27 per cent saying they did not know.

     Exactly WHICH moron said that approval of Putin’s political skills makes you a danger to your own country? Did anyone actually come out with such hogwash?

    Did the pollsters remind Brits who deployed the insult?


    • In some ways, I admire Lenin’s political skills.

    But I detest utterly what he did with them.

      Maybe that fellow Morris has another agenda and is in UKIP to demoralise the party. Who pays the piper calls the tune. Oldest trick in the book

    Asylum Canada – Bludgers Czeched, Buggers Weasel In! 

      Otto Jellinek


    I noticed this man’s name in my news search not long ago, and it rang a bell! 

    He was once my auntie’s MP, so must have represented Mississauga. She always spoke well of him, and I remember that he himself was a refugee, from one of the Kremlin’s colonial conquests after WW2.

    Anyway, now he’s Canada’s Ambassador in Prague, and their local newspaper had a chat with him, which touched on the problem of Roma bludgers, and how effectively the then Immigration Minister Jason Kenney handled it. 

    …a number of Czech citizens, said by the Canadian press to be largely members of the Roma community, tried to claim asylum in Canada. The rising number of Czech asylum claimants in Canada, the vast majority unfounded, led Ottawa to reimpose a visa requirement for visiting Czech citizens...




    ….it was clear that many changes needed to occur. These included a significant reform to our asylum system.”  

    The system was monitored for about a year and there was a “very high” visa approval rate for Czech applicants, and the number of Czech asylum claims decreased by 99 percent….


    RRA readers will recall Kenney’s perceptive grasp of the issue. It was absurd that people were ‘fleeing’ one of the most democratic countries  in the former Soviet Empire and claiming ‘asylum’ in Canada. The Minister summed up the Roma succinctly. 


    According to media reports, Kenney says that many Roma came to Canada to abuse its “generous” welfare system. To be perfectly honest with you, we have people showing up at … the airport where they make their asylum claim, asking where they can get their check from, their welfare check.”

    Nice One, Kenney! Roma Parasites Nailed! 

    So good that action has been taken. And excellent that the visa issue is being remedied to let decent Czechs into Canada more easily.

    I’d be interested to learn, however, how many of the parasites that had oozed in previously have been expelled- one hopes the lot of them!

     Meanwhile, however, it turns out that Canada is also getting ‘asylumers’ coming in from a tiny, pleasant and similarly democratic country, the Bahamas!

    A local interviewer there asked  the Bahamian Foreign Minister, Fred Mitchell, about what was going on.

    His response is instructive, not least because he indicated that Bahamas itself has granted asylum to refugees from “a number of countries”, including a Commonwealth member state, for political reasons.\


      Fred Mitchell, Bahama’s Foreign Minister


    So guess who can’t hack living in a free country where REAL refugees seeking liberty are happy to go to?

    Yup, you’ve got it.


    Those damnable whining malcontents, the ‘gays!’

    And this despite the fact that, as Mr. Mitchell tells us, their bizarre behaviour was decriminalized more than two decades ago.

    The reason for their their flight seems to be that their antics are apparently disliked by normal Bahamas folk. Perhaps if they were a tad more considerate, kept their conduct behind closed doors, they wouldn’t have a problem!

    Toronto’s Keystone KGB – Infested With Undesirables? 

    But no doubt Canada will be much more congenial, with Toronto’s disgusting ‘pride parade,’ where naked perverts flaunt their horrid habits undeterred by the lousy local cops, who prefer to serve as enforcers against decent Canadians who speak up against the sordid scenes.
