Jakarta Mosque – Yellow-Bellies Bash, Spit On, Journos!
Well don’t say we didn’t warn you!
….the massive street protest on Saturday organized by Muslim groups demanding the imprisonment of incumbent Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama ended in violence directed against members of the media.
Actually, it was a lady reporter and her crew who were assaulted.
No fan of the media, nevertheless I draw the line at vicious physical assaults on journos.
ESPECIALLY women journos.
But we know what Islamists think of girls – one of Jakarta’s foremost sexist sectarians infamously told us a year or two ago.
…and while that FPI gauleiter restricted himself to demeaning words, there’s an inherent contempt for women among the vilest elements in Indonesia…
…and elsewhere, of course.
Or was it just basic yellow-belly cowardice that boiled over at the weekend, when a ‘mob’ of dirty dastards set about a female reporter outside Jakarta’s huge Istiqlal Mosque.
Senior Metro TV journalist Desi Fitriani filed a police report on Saturday after she was hit in the head by unidentified protesters with a bamboo pole. She suffered an injury to the head.
Fellow Metro TV journalist Ucha Fernandes also filed a report after being struck in the abdomen, neck and legs.
Brave and devout congregants, eh?
And we’re not talking about ne’er-do-wells who were just passing by. Nor hoodlums loitering in the vicinity.
The bigot brutes were IN the mosque.
Antara news agency reported that the alleged assault happened when Desi and Ucha were trying to get inside Istiqlal Mosque to get footage for their live broadcast. They were allegedly chased out by a mob… http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/02/13/anti-ahok-crowd-directs-anger-toward-media-journalists.html
NB – Chased OUT.
Ipso facto, by those within.
Nothing wrong with ‘men’ like that…nothing which a bullet in the back of the neck wouldn’t cure!
But curiously, the Jakarta Post report omits much that’s reported elsewhere, as in Suara.com, which adds a third victim to the list, Dino, a cameraman from Global TV. Maybe the JP produced a more accurate account in another edition – no time to check tonight.
In Suara.com, Ucha told his story.“My stomach and my shoulder were struck, I was kicked in the foot well. Besides that, I was also spat on.”
But now it gets REALLY interesting.
The Jakarta Post offers no explanation for the attack, but Suara.com quotes one of the victims.
I was surrounded by the mob who questioned why TV referred to the leader of the Islamic Defenders Front as Rizieq, without adding the title Habib.
You regular RRA readers know at once who we’re talking about. This geezer –
Rizieq, left, with his rabid hero, Ba’asyir ( who’s currently doing time for terror-links)
That’s Habib Rizieq, FPI ‘high imam’ who thinks our nice Jakarta Governor deserves to be KILLED for quoting a Koranic verse?
“We encourage the government to process the death penalty for Ahok as soon as possible,” said Rizieq. http://www.suara.com/news/2016/10/14/134313/
We’ve used that extract more than once because it exemplifies blood-thirsty Islamist intolerance.
But the inclusion or omission of Habib is not an issue for us – sometimes we use it for him other times not.
There’s no indication Mr. H Rizieq ( ! ) was involved in Saturday’s incident. But he does indeed value that title/name, as, obviously, did the scum who attacked that lady last week. You’ll find out more of its significance on this previous post.
Mr. Rizieq is a great buddy of Mr. Al Khaththath, of the FUI, which reminds me – it’s hardly the first time a woman reporter has suffered at the hands of swinish louts in a fanatic rabble.
Here’s an extract from one of our posts, from two and a half years ago.
…a young lady identified as P, age 22, was sexually assaulted while covering the protests of the Islamic Defenders Front. The alleged perpetrator was a man about 40 years old, of short stature.
P told Kompas that while she was looking for a safe place on the sidewalk (away from the crowds of protesters ) suddenly, somebody grabbed her from behind with both hands.
She said she later saw the man alleged to have committed the sexual harassment,shaking hands with the Chairman of the Islamic People’s Forum (FUI) Muhammad al-Khaththath.
RRA readers will know this fanatic, a leading light in the state-funded MUI (Indonesian Scholars’ Council) . https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/06/15/another-nail-in-freedoms-coffin-indonesian-atheist-jailed-for-blasphemy/
P bravely confronted her molestor, who of course denied all.
“He did not want to admit it. Instead he accused me of being a provocateur. I said to him, ‘Sir, I am a journalist.” Then he actually said:’ Yes, a journalist would deliberately try to heat up the atmosphere! ‘
“What made me even more sick at heart, the FUI chairman even said, ‘It’s the way it is…
“If you don’t want to get touched, you should stay home indoors.” .http://megapolitan.kompas.com/read/2014/09/24/19104201/Wartawati.Mengaku.Jadi.Korban.Pelecehan.Seksual

And maybe stuff your head in a black sack, and don’t be a bother to men?
What lovely people one finds at Islamist get-togethers!
