Three Cheers for Banyumas!

A total of 15 mass organizations in Banyumas rejected the draft declaration of the Islamic Defenders Front in Banyumas. They agreed to reject the arrival and declaration of the FPI leader…

They also put up banners expressing this rejection throughout Banyumas, with five key points listed.

Benteng Nusantara is what they’re calling their campaign against the Islamist bigots, the ‘Fortress of the Islands,’ and the coordinator, Yudho F Sudiro, detailed those points- viz..

Firstly, they condemn anarchist actions undertaken by FPI.

Second, they reject ALL forms of FPI activities in Banyumas.

Third, Banyumas is peaceful –  the presence of FPI can make Banyumas ‘not conducive.’

Fourth, rejection of the presence of the IslamoNazi ‘high priest’ Habib Rizieq and other FPI notables in Banyumas.

Fifth, an exhortation to local leaders not to give space to mass organizations affiliated with the extreme right and left in Banyumas.

That sounds to me like they’re making the comparison many people have drawn between the outlawed PKI – the Indonesian Communist Party – and the FPI, which, like the Reds, has a long record of violence and contempt for Indonesian democratic values.

There certainly is an inconsistency that the marxist outfit is banned but the jihadist outfit isn’t.

However, the white-shirt thug gang seems determined to press on with their Banyumas launch. And Rizieq is expected to show up sooner rather than later. Their gauleiter from nearby Cilacap, Ridho Anshori says that if all goes according to plan,Rizieq will induct FPI Banyumas…

Then he gratuitously insulted the community he intends to subject to IslamoNazi attention, saying that “the formation of Banyumas FPI will bring serious benefits, because immorality in Banyumas is extraordinary compared to Cilacap…”

Ominously, after what happened last time…

Bravo, Banyumas! Decent Muslims Stand Up To IslamoNazi FPI! 

…Gauleiter Ridho is hoping that the police look after his vigilante pack.

“If there is a security breach, and so on, we also have the law enforcement officers, the police.”

Rizieq was scheduled to appear today. If he defies the locals, it will be interesting to see if the cops back the people or the IslamoNazis.
