Typical? Jakarta Mob Orator Talks Embassy Arson!

“If they don’t get out of this place in three days, we’ll expel them ourselves. We’ll burn this embassy,” another protest leader told the crowd as he stood on top of a truck, vowing to stage further rallies.


Playing with fire? There’s something of an obsession with burning among certain elements in Jakarta.

We all read about sectarian savages demanding that former Governor Ahok be burned.

The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/10/14/thousands-hard-liners-march-against-ahok.htm

Ahok only burned in effigy!


Those blasted bigots didn’t get their way, but poor Ahok is now in jail thanks to  the country’s ‘blasphemy’ law.

And of course there’s the infamous Gramedia book-burning incident, when the Jakarta Post’s publishers emulated Adolf Hitler by building a bonfire of books that upset Islamist fanatics.


A pity the Jakarta Globe didn’t give us the name of the ranter who was heard shrilling about burning the embassy.

But at least they told us of the irresponsible threat to go lawless.


The Jakarta Post, in contrast – http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/09/06/-thousands-of-muslims-protest-outside-myanmar-embassy.html

–  made no mention of it.

But given their Gramedia publisher’s enthusiasm for setting fire to harmless books, perhaps they prefer not to mention that sort of incendiary outburst.
