Will Fadli Open ‘The People’s House” To Jakarta’s Homeless?


That was a most generous offer from Indonesia’s Fadli Zon, Deputy House Speaker, to the hordes of Islamist fanatics whose short “Long March” yesterday, billed as an Aksi Damai ( ‘Peace Action!)  ended in tear gas, with a mob of sectarian thugs attacking the police.

  • HMI Sebut Massa AKBAR Yang Picu Kerusuhan di Monas
  • These ‘protestors’ were pampered with freebies all day long – 
  • The massive rally organized by Muslim organizations against Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja “Ahok” Purnama has seen a seemingly endless flow of free food and drinks to keep protesters happy.
  • http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/11/04/free-food-drinks-keep-protesters-happy.htmlThe Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) drove in trucks filled with bags of food.

  • One assumes the violent ( albeit well-fed) rabble we saw last night will, by their lawlessness, have excluded themselves from Fadli’s gracious invitation, issued earlier on Friday…

  • …when he claimed there’d be no objection if the protesters wanted to stay at the Parliament House… according to him, the House is home to the people, including demonstrators.

  • If that’s the case, that the House is ‘home to the people’ as Fadli asserts, what about all those people, the really needy people, sleeping under bridges or on those very streets?

Will Fadli throw open the gates of the opulent parliamentary complex in Senayan to people like those in these photographs?

Doesn’t the the plight of the poor weigh heavier on this politicians’s conscience than the accommodation exigencies of Islamist extremists? 

But skip that question, ask another – should we at least  enquire if Fadli’s offer of grace and favour lodgings extends to every demonstrator in every protest that takes place in Jakarta, or just to jihadist extremists?

There are so many that there’d be no room for the legislators – and wouldn’t that break a lot of hearts across Indonesia?

  • Or are we being too harsh?
  • Fadli seems to be a friendly fellow.
  • In fact I was surprised that somebody with a soft spot for fanatical Islamists got on so well with The Donald!
  • Yes, it was Fadli Zon who caused no little controversy last year when photographed with the man who is (fingers crossed!)  just a few days away from entering the White House.
  • A man Fadli was delighted to meet!

  • Okay, have a nice – and peaceful – day.
