The Fanatic Returns! Indonesian “Scholar” Offers Warm Welcome!

Shocking news!

Habib Rizieq is back, but this has been predicted for some time.

Watching TVOne at 11am, we saw footage of the scene on the toll road to the airport, where would-be passengers have been forced to walk with heavy bags to catch their flights, or sit in their cars and miss their flights…



…as fanatic FPI hordes have swarmed all over the area.

Where are the police, with water cannon to clear the way for the public, on a public highway? 

What’s this all about?

Let me digress…

I have had to comment on the collective character of the MUI (Indonesian Ulema Council ) from time to time over the years ..

“A Wise And Noble Step?” Islamic ‘Scholars’ On Terrorist Unleashed In Indonesia! 

Syamsul Maarif,  General Secretary of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) Jakarta

“If the act of adultery is by a married person, then stoning is the sentence, while if unmarried, then it’s whipping,” he said.

 Bali Hindu King – Don’t Kill Our Cows! Muslim ‘Scholars’ – Get Lost!!  

Islamist ‘Scholars’ – “Don’t Complain if You’re Attacked!”

…but gradually wearied of that, because no government has stood up to them, nor even cut their tax-funding, no matter what outlandish things they say.

But their deputy chairman, Muhyiddin Junaidi, made such a breath-taking assertion this month that I feel obliged to let overseas readers know about it.

I haven’t written anything about Junaidi for years, not since the MUI’s antics seven years ago…

MUI thinks the contest image remains attached to advance the genitalia.

No one can guarantee there’s no display of Miss World,” Chairman of InternationalCooperation MUI Muhyidin Junaidi.  That’s the Google Translate of his word

…not since he and his colleagues were up in arms about sexy girls.

But this month Muhyiddin proclaimed that the much touted return from (self-) exile in Saudi Arabia of Habib Rizieq, ‘ can encourage Muslims in Indonesia to be more enthusiastic in preventing evil.

Muhyiddin assessed that Rizieq was a cleric figure who had excellence and was creative when dealing with something that was considered wrong. Especially at this time, according to him, acts that violate Allah SWT’s orders are considered massive in Indonesia.’ Currently, evil is rampant and very massive,” he said…
Muhyiddin considered Rizieq an asset for Muslims in Indonesia. 

Veteran readers here will know all about Habib Rizieq, and his vigilante gang, the FPI…


….the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front,’ and if you are new to our blog, you may use our Search box, over to the right side, to familiarise yourselves with that particular outfit and same goes for their ‘Grand Imam,’ though this photo and report…


  • Jakarta Governor candidate Anies Baswedan wins an adoring smile from ferocious FPI ‘grand imam, Habib Rizieq, who had suggested the Christian Governor Ahok be slain for unacceptably quoting some Koranic verse –.“We encourage the government to process the death penalty for Ahok as soon as possible,” said Rizieq. 

…is one we use to illustrate his many contributions to public life.



Yes, Rizieq seriously believes that ‘blasphemers’ deserve to be put to death!

That was four years ago, but there’s no reason to suppose he has changed his view, despite recent events in France, so perhaps Junaidi is wise to add a little to his eulogy, as follows!

He also realized that Rizieq still had many shortcomings. Therefore, a synergy is needed in preaching by other scholars or ustaz in order to fill this gap.

Now we wait, while pundits discuss Rizieq’s likelihood of running for President.

Indonesia is heading into interesting times,
