Fanatic Indonesian Islamists Plan Myanmar Jihad!


A little alarming to read that a petrol bomb was thrown at Myanmar’s embassy in on Jl. Agus Salim in Central Jakarta early Sunday.

I was only last week walking along that street, dropping by a nearby office to meet a friend.

But I saw no signs then, among the everyday Indonesians walking to and fro, to confirm the rest of the sentence in that report, that anger grew across the mainly Muslim archipelago about violence against Rohingyas in Myanmar. 

However, that’s just my walk-about impression.

There undoubtedly are some people in this lovely archipelago who are greatly exercised about what’s going on.

In East Java, the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ aka FPI is reported to be sending volunteers to Myanmar for jihad…FPI Pasuruan region has reportedly opened registration of jihad volunteers to help Rohingya…

Anyone interested in signing up who is between 17-20 years old, please note you need to bring a note from mummy or daddy to do so!

Exactly how these ‘jihadists’ plan to ‘help’ is not quite clear. We sometimes hear Islamic spokesmen telling us that ‘jihad’ is not necessarily violent but rather can be interpreted as a spiritual struggle.

However right or wrong that explanation may be, I think, given that the FPI has been photographed with a blood-thirsty banner parading their sectarian hatred around the streets of Jakarta…

….it is not unreasonable to assume that they may not be entirely committed to a peaceful approach!

The white-shirted vigilantes are in any case notorious throughout Indonesia for their readiness to resort to violent tactics.

Hence I suggest any readers who might be downtown on Wednesday should avoid the area of the embassy, since the white-shirt gang’s spokesman, Slamet Maarif, has advised the media that they’re planning another protest then.

oooooo
