Can Petitions Predict Indonesia’s Future – Free Or Fanatic?

You may remember this individual, who expressed the hope that Jakarta’s best-ever governor, Jokowi, face the death penalty for referring to some verse from the Koran?


Yes, it’s Rizieq, ‘high priest’ of the sectarian vigilante gang that calls itself the ‘Islam Defenders Front.’

The FPI!

Despite Rizieq’s bloodthirsty exhortation, and the howls that issued from savage primitives who shuffled through Jakarta back then…

The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”





…Ahok was not killed( merely imprisoned, for Pete’s sake!) after a trial that shamed Indonesia around the world.

If you are new to our pages, there are plenty of links to our past reports on their violent and intolerant antics on our blog –


Jakarta – Anti-Fanatic Petition

That was about a petition by pro-tolerance Indonesians asking that the FPI’s permit to function as a ‘community organisation’ be not renewed.

Have a look – or you may just sample these older posts.

Nightmare – Indonesian IslamoNazis Get Armed Forces Training! 

But this latest petition sets a new standard in courage, demanding that the fanatic Rizeq be stripped of his Indonesian citizenship!

He is currently in Saudi Arabia, and has been there quite a while…Indonesian hard-line cleric ducks facing porn charges again …evidently not eager to come home.

Anyway, here’s the link to the new petition…

…,which is doing very well.

Only Indonesian citizens are entitled to add their names, but it’s well worth reading!

I’m sure if you use Google Translate you’ll get the gist of it.

Or use this Tempo link  –  – if you are not up to Google’s efforts!

Needless to say, the Islamist fanatics of the FPI are not best pleased. Their Jakarta gauleiter, Novel, says they’re starting their own petition.

Habib Novel – “women already have limitations, let alone non- Muslims!”

We have heard of his enlightened outlook on life previously!


They were able to mobilise several hundred thousand bigots for the anti-Ahok shuffling, so if all of those were able to read and write, the FPI petition might catch up…or not.

In fact, the FPI petition is not actually about Rizieq. Instead they are targetting President Jokowi!

Quote-  to urge the Constitutional Court to disqualify the Presidential Candidate number 01 Joko Widodo….

This may be a clever tactic, since Jokowi’s Vice-President was a star witness AGAINST Ahok.

Will the President consult his VP before responding to the multitude of decent folk demanding that Rizieq be deprived of citizenship? Jokowi’s VP Pick

And if he does, how will VP Ma’aruf advise him?
