Nightmare – Indonesian IslamoNazis Get Armed Forces Training!
Some of you will recall the behaviour of the Indonesian Parliament’s Deputy Speaker Fadli Zon, which we covered late last year.
I’ll skip using powerful adjectives – such conduct speaks for itself.
But now he’s in the headlines again, speaking about the most horrific news imaginable, overt collaboration between elements of the TNI, the Indonesian Armed Forces…
Should this hate-gang get military training?
…and the violent vigilante gang, infamous throughout the archipelago, the self-styled Islam Defenders’ Front, the FPI.
Scenes that shame Indonesia
The only consolation is that the military commander who brought these white-shirt sectarians into a military training programme has been stripped of his duties – although it’s not clear, and, sadly, unlikely, that he’s been kicked out of the army.
FPI – prime soldierly material?
It is not, perhaps, irrelevant that this disgraceful activity occurred in Banten Province, which is only a few miles outside Jakarta – in fact if you have ever flown into Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, you’ll have landed in Banten yourself.
Banten Province was the scene of the vile Cikeusik Pogrom, five years ago, when a mob of ululating Islamist savages martyred three innocent members of the Ahmadi religious minority.
Cikeusik, Banten Province, February 6th, 2011. Watch the pigs at their bloody work on this link.. http://www.liveleak.com/view.–
Police looked on as the trio were beaten to death amid howls of ‘Allahu Akbar.’
Nobody has ever been charged with the murders. A handful of the savages got a few months jail-time, as did one of their intended victims, who survived the atrocity. Victim of Islamist Murder Mob Gets Six Months in the Slammer
Today I took the trouble to check on the map and lo, Cikeusik is situated within the very same kebaputen, administrative area, Lebak, where the training reportedly took place.
I wonder if any of the vile beasts involved in the pogrom were among the trainees?
Okay, that training has been stopped, although the Jakarta Post reports that a similar outrage occurred in another province, on the island of Madura.
The JP adds that –
The TNI has yet to issue an official statement on the matter. http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/01/09/protests-against-military-training-for-fpi-exaggerated-fadli-zon.html
However, one can see why Lieutenant Colonel Czi Ubaidillah, the officer responsible for including the gangster group in his training course, might have felt it permissible to do so.
Czi with FPI ‘clerics’.
After all, his Commander-in-Chief, President Jokowi, saw nothing wrong with sharing a platform with the FPI godfather, Habib Rizieq, barely a month ago, during a huge fanatic demo right here in Jakarta.
And Fadli Zon too was unashamed to appear with the FPI fanatics last year, so no surprise that he dismissed the concerns of many honourable Indonesians of all creeds about this shocking news.
Fadli has slammed critics who were questioning the program and FPI’s participation in it…
…The politician from the Gerindra Party also criticized the military’s decision to strip Lebak military commander of his post for recruiting the FPI in Banten to take the training recently, calling the decision “regrettable”.
I have to wonder what all those Jakarta police officers will think about this, the cops who were injured in the FPI riot last year.
Will they welcome the prospect of such Islamist louts being trained to fight?
In the end, I don’t suppose any amount of training will transform the FPI into worthwhile warriors. They tend to avoid any fighting unless they’re mob-handed.
Food vendors, bar-staff and shop-keepers are their targets of choice – any defenceless folk, really, who are out-numbered.
Their cowardice when faced with people prepared to fight back is legendary. Read that link above, about how an innocent woman was killed in Sukorejo…
…and how the ‘heroic’ hooligans scuttled into a mosque, to hide till night-fall, when they required a police escort to get out of town safely.
However, let’s see what steps the security forces take to purge their ranks of those who would collaborate.
For my part, I said only a day or so ago – Another ‘Moderate’ Muslim Hanging Out With Da Gang? – that local news depresses me. That cloud is not lifting.
It is said that the number of foreigners here has fallen by forty percent over the past year or two.
