Jakarta Fanatics “Can’t Prevent” Harassment Of French Expats!

So this very overcast day, more traffic chaos likely in Jakarta, as the most extreme fanatics in Indonesia plan to ‘visit’ the French Embassy, which is on a normally very busy main road downtown…


….the ‘visit’ not, of course, to express sympathy at the beheading of a brave Parisian teacher by an evil barbarian….

Good Shot, French Cops! One More Filthy Savage In Hell! 

…but to vent their spleen over President Macron’s response to the brutal sectarian crime.

As of tomorrow, Jakarta is on holiday, an Islamic holiday affording everyone a very long weekend, Wednesday through Friday, so traffic will be light.  A demo tomorrow would thus not much impact traffic.

Greater disruption will be imposed on honest working citizens as the fanatics turn out to do their thing today, but tough on honest working citizens!

  ‘PA212’ are evidently unable to restrain their urge to take to the streets.

 ‘PA212?’ For more about that lot, read this  Islamist Fanatics Rage At India – ‘Diskriminasi?’ Oya?’ 


But they’re the crowd that prides itself on having overseen marches (shuffles, actually) distinguished by hollering about ex-Governor Ahok, of whom they disapproved.


Ahok, now, thankfully out of prison, after being convicted ( in the 21st century, incredibly!) of ‘blasphemy!’

But a march/shuffle, or a ‘visit’ or a demo, or whatever, is one thing.

The cops here are used to such antics and can handle such situations.

What is much more sinister is the assertion by their ubiquitous spokesman, Novel Bakmunin…


Novel has featured here before, for enlightened statement which bring such credit to his cause.   – “women already have limitations, let alone non- Muslims!” http://megapolitan.kompas.com/read/2013/10/26/1937287/.FPIMenolak.Lurah.Susan.Harga.Mati

Jakarta Facing Another Fanatic Friday – and Thursday…and Besok? 

….that there’s no way they can restrain any ‘umat Islam’ ( Muslims) who might want to go ‘sweeping’ against French citizens who happen to be in Indonesia.

That weasel word ‘sweeping’ is not Indonesian, of course, but I include the sentence from the local media to illustrate how it has become embedded in the vocabulary here……

Namun, ia menyatakan bahwa pihaknya tak bisa menghalangi jika ada keinginan umat Islam melakukan sweeping warga negara Prancis yang menetap di R.I. https://m.cnnindonesia.com/nasional/20201026182442-20-562944/pa-212-bakal-geruduk-kedubes-dan-boikot-produk-prancis

…a sick euphemism for harassment!

Novel is also a notable figure in the FPI, whose attitude towards people who upset them is displayed to perfection…


…in the above photograph!

We have seen it all before, but how will the wannabe ‘sweepers’ identify French people?

It’s not even as if all French citizens are white!

Will the self-righteous  bullies accost any foreign-looking folks going about legitimate business in the city, arrogantly demanding to see their passports?

If so, one hopes all honest expats will give such insolent importunates the brush-off, perhaps with this admonition….



…and that the police will scoop up any such obnoxious oafs, safeguarding civilised people from malevolent molestation.

Meanwhile, let’s hope it rains, heavily!
