So Jokowi Reckons There’s ‘Too Much Democracy?’
Jokowi made it clear on Wednesday that he was irked by a series of large sectarian rallies over the past few months, which he insinuated was the reason behind the country’s slowing economy.
If the President was ‘irked’ by the hate-fests staged by Islamist fanatics, he could easily have refused to appear on any platform on which the fanatic Rizieq was standing.
Yet he did, captured in the photograph which broke so many hearts that beat for Indonesia.
He could also have ordered Indonesia’s Police (POLRI) and Armed Forces (the TNI) to take action against Rizieq’s sectarian thug-gang, the self-styled Islam Defenders’ Front (FPI)
- Not only have security forces accompanied these white-shirt hoodlums on raids against defenceless citizens and stood back as IslamoNazis created havoc –IslamoNazis V Free Speech – Jakarta Cops Referee? but worse, they have consigned helpless children into that gang’s custody and control.
On that occasion, it was not just the FPI but also the caliphofascist Hizbut Tahrir – . Muslim School Burned by Angry Crowd – Police Enlist IslamoNazis to Counsel Kids! – whom the cops chose as appropriate custodians!
“Many people asked me whether our democracy had gone too far. I answered ‘yes, it has gone too far’,” said Jokowi.
“Political freedom has opened the door for extreme politics, such as liberalism, fundamentalism, sectarianism, radicalism, terrorism and other ideologies that contradict Pancasila,” he added. http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/02/23/democracy-gone-too-far-jokowi.html
Fair enough, liberalism, among the other ideologies he mentions, is an unwholesome thing.
It corrodes any society it touches, as we have seen in Western countries, with its consequences – the rise of the gaystapo, the abhorrence of realistic punishment for evil-doers…
…and the self-abnegation most blatantly expressed in the form of suicidal multi-culturalism.
But the clear and present danger is that which is so powerful in Indonesia nowadays that few politicians dare speak its name…
As anyone who has spent much time in Indonesia knows, there are millions of decent Muslims all over the archipelago who have no time for the sectarian triumphalism which characterises the Islamist ideology…
Multicult on display in Britain
…nor for the brutality and iniquity which is inherent in shariah, the imposition of which is the Islamist goal.
Their ultimate objective is treasonous, the subjection of Indonesia, and every other nation, to a global caliphate.
As an Indonesian patriot, and of that I have no doubts, President Jokowi could and should have denounced the Islamist ideology, which is the very antithesis of Pancasila.
Pancasila is the official state ideology here, which looks to God Almighty with NO discrimination against any of the religious denominations that worship Him.
Pancasila – Pluralism Enshrined
Historically, Pancasila was approved when Indonesia became independent, and a deliberate decision was made to scrap the proposed ‘Jakarta Charter’ which would have dragged the new nation straight down an oppressive Islamist path.
As the leader of the largest Muslim democracy in the world, President Jokowi could and would have done SO much good by naming the Islamist ideology among the others he condemned .
Another missed opportunity.
