Vive La Resistance! Brave Muslims Defy Kill-Joy Clerics!

Holidays over, for many, but there is sunshine outdoors today, and a ray or two of sunshine in the news too, not least another fire-fight not too far from here, in Tangerang, where the anti-terror unit Densus 88 took out six suspected terrorists.


No doubt we’ll hear protests from the Forum Umat Indonesia soon.

But what about that arresting report in the Jakarta Globe?

THOUSANDS of Acehnese DID turn out to celebrate New Year, despite the ignoramus diktat from self-styled ‘scholars!’


“We are calling on people not to celebrate New Year’s Eve!” 

That was the message echoing around Banda Aceh’s main square, from shariah-freaks in a regime truck, but enthusiastic participants managed to light off a few firecrackers when the clock struck midnight….marked by cheers and shouts from the crowd, which persisted despite efforts by security personnel to disband the gathering.

And the Jakarta Post has a photo of some of the goon-squad’s victims…

Against people’s will: Public Order Agency officials and sharia police take away several women in a van in Banda Aceh, Aceh, on Wednesday. These women were detained at entertainment spots on New Year Day.  The authorities imposed a ban on New Year celebrations in Aceh. More than 90 percent of Indonesian Muslims celebrated New Year’s Eve joyfully throughout the archipelago, including in many places in Aceh, without any problems. (Antara/Irwansyah Putra)   These women were detained at entertainment spots on New Year Day.

Very interesting!

Not the imbecilic harassment, which is typical of Banda Aceh, but the fact that SOLDIERS were deployed to assist the police state oppression. The Army is under the control of CENTRAL, not Provincial authorities, and, as far as I am aware, President SBY is Commander-in-Chief.

The JG notes that the IslamoNazi FPI was sticking its ugly snout in, ‘guarding’ routes to other popular places, like the beach, slavishly serving the regime.No surprise there.

But surely Indonesia’s Head of State didn’t give HIS men a green light to act as back-up for bigotry?

And bigotry is the word to use.

Listen to that virulent ranter, Iliza Sa’aduddin Djamal, Banda Aceh’s Deputy Mayor –

We will crack down on those who celebrate…we will return after New Year’s Eve and pacify those who resist us...”

That bint must be one of the most unpleasant persons in Indonesia. Readers may remember how she rants and raves, on every possible subject, always from the most mean-spirited Islamist angle.

No wonder that resistance has shown itself, and, given that the youth of Aceh seem to be at the core of that resistance, it will surely flourish.

  • resistance
  • People turned out in their thousands.

And it is a fact that people will only tolerate tyrannical rule for so long, then they will show tyrants what they think of them. And eventually act.  Let’s not forget the footage of that day in Bucharest, Ceausescu droning on at his massed subjects, who suddenly began to shout back defiantly. He was stunned.

And look what befell him, very soon after that glorious, defiant day.

As the pop song says, ‘the Christmas you get, you deserve!

And next New Year in Aceh? After a dozen more months of sectarian bullying?

Who knows?
