Very Brave Indonesian Lady – Hope She Stays Safe!

I don’t expect anybody outside of Indonesia will have heard of Dewi Tanjung, who was a popular actress before she found a new career!


Dewi Tanjung

She’s a politician nowadays, in one of the most pluralist parties, the PDI-P, not in the upper levels of politics, but she has gained a reputation for what’s described in the West as ‘shooting from the hip.’

Straight talking does not always win friends here, any more than it does in the West.

But this time Nyai Dewi, as she’s known, has let her target have it, with both barrels!

Bahar bin Smith.


Regular readers will have seen our output on the Islamist extremist named Smith!

Far be it from me to comment on the wisdom or otherwise of the fanatic’s re-incarceration, though why it has been a matter of such bitter controversy…

Indonesia’s Islamists Threaten Mob Mayhem! 

…is a matter of some bafflement.

Nyai Dewi, however, has felt more than free to comment!

In fact, she’s been quoted in several media as hoping Smith ‘would end his life in prison….’



Nyai wants to see this arrogant human being fulfilling his proclamation…ROT TO DEATH IN PRISON!” said Dewi.

Well, Nyai Dewi…

…why don’t you say how you really feel about Smith?

Seriously, though, there are a lot of very unpleasant Islamists in Indonesia, which is a great pity because most Indonesians are nice.

Some of the fanatics have murdered people and gotten away with it.

Others just holler about murder…

The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”    ..Ramadhan In Jakarta -‘Kill Ahok,’ Sing Parading Child-Bigots!..and get away with it too.

Others incite murder.

And get away with it too.

Nyai Dewi is not just a straight-talker but a VERY courageous lady.
