Indonesia Today! ‘Great and Good’ Pose Cheerfully with IslamoNazi Fuhrer! yesterday published this photo of a gathering of the country’s great and good to celebrate Maulid, the Birthday of  the Prophet.

From the left – General Chairman of the Nahdlatul Ulama, KH Said Aqil Siradj; Jakarta Chairman of the Nahdlatul Ulama, Djan Farid; Chairman of the People’s Consultative Assembly, Taufik Kiemas;


Speaker of the House of Representatives, Marzuki Ali; and Chairman of the Jakarta City Council, Irman Gusman.

Here we have some of the most powerful and influential men in Indonesia posing cheerfully for a photo-opportunity with an infamous Islamonazi bigot.

It’s rather as if the Speakers of the House and Senate and senior church leaders joined the Imperial Wizard of the KKK for a happy snap at Christmas!

Now it might be the case that they all showed up separately, and of course they are all entitled to celebrate the day however they want. But nobody could have forced them to line up together like that.

Would you want your picture taken with a rabid sectarian gang-leader? Why did they?

God help Indonesia! All the more so as the reason for the photo’s appearance was to show readers a likely candidate to join the Cabinet of President SBY.

That man third from the left, Djan Farid, is not only a Member of Parliament for the PPP, the same party as super-bigot Minister of Religious Affairs Suryadharma Ali, and not only the Jakarta NU Chairman, the NU being, of course, ‘Indonesia’s leading Muslim moderate organisation.’

Had he not been lured to Cabinet rank- as of today, he’s Minister for Public Housing – he had plans to run for governor of the capital!

One is known by the company you keep….?
