Jakarta Jew-Haters Boo Chinese Christian Candidate

 Tomorrow, Sunday, the IslamoNazi FPI – the same as gave their now infamous ‘thumbs-up’ to the brutal murders of  American diplomats this week, have promied as peaceful demo in support of Governor Fauzi Bowo’s re-election campaign. http://metropolitan.inilah.com/read/detail/1904661/fpi-gelar-aksi-damai-untuk-dukung-fauzi-bowo


Keep it clean: Governor Fauzi Bowo (left) tells a crowd on Thursday in Jakarta that there will be a “peaceful” campaign for the upcoming gubernatorial runoff. Also at the event were Fauzi’s running mate, Nachrowi Ramli, (center) and their electoral rival, Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama (right), who is running on the ticket of Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.(JP/P.J.

It’s hardly surprising he’s got their backing.

A ‘Peace Declaration’ rally staged by  Jakarta’s Elections Commission (KPU Jakarta) last week turned sour when bigot hecklers hurled sectarian and racist abuse at Ahok, the opposition’s candidate for deputy governor

With an array of  what passes for the capital’s ‘great and good’ in attendance, the whole point of the event went rapidly down the tube as IslamoNazi elements in the crowd reminded us of the way the campaign has been marred by slurs and smears.

The Jakarta Post described what happened.

Fauzi was welcomed by cheers from his supporters. Ahok, however, received boos and taunts — including “Jew” and “Chinese” from his rival’s supporters. Ahok was forced to pause frequently and speak louder.
Ahok, a Christian of Chinese descent, has been the target of a slew of racial and religious slurs in the run-up to the second-round election on Sept. 20.

He is certainly a Chinese ethnic but obviously not a Jew, so we have to interpret that epithet as directed towards his Christianity – seems the shariah-freaks can’t differentiate between Christians and Jews, who are both bete noire in their tiny minds.

  • Polls suggest these ethnic/sectarian jibes won’t play a major role in the election next week – the Jakarta Globe, September 10th had figures showing less than 40 per cent of voters regarded the candidates’ religions as ‘key criteria’ in their choice.
  • Perhaps significantly, in view of the amount of noise made by islamist fanatics like Rhoma Irama, Muslim voters appeared more likely than others to take the candidate’s faith into account.Forty-two percent said they considered it a factor, while 60 percent of non-Muslim respondents said it was not a factor at all. http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/home/faith-not-a-factor-in-jakarta-runoff-poll/543391

Meanwhile, the watch-dog commission has dismissed clains that a law-maker broke the rules when she suggested that the terrible fires in the north and west of Jakarta were not coincidentally blighting areas where Jokowi had serious support from residents.



Nobody’s saying FB had a hand in the  arson, but he did himself no favours with his callous remark to fire victims last month that if they voted for Jokowi, they should look for housing in Solo. His subsequent explanations that this cold throw-away line was meant to be humorous made things worse – why on earth would families rendered homeless in a frightful blaze want to hear FB’s idea of a joke?
