One could compare him to some of his predecessors and draw mre than a few interesting conclusions…

According to Tito, their activities like that he attended will get rid of the ugly stigma of the FPI as “radical and militant synonymous with violence and intolerance….FPI is an Islamic organization so very tolerant of other religions,” he addedVideo Viral, Tito Karnavian: FPI Ormas Islam yang Sangat Toleran

…but that’s not my purpose today.

Thing is, in this 90% Muslim country, Jokowi has picked a Christian, a Catholic, to be precise, and that has caused a lot of comment. 

What I’d like to look at is an article in Tempo by the Director of the Indonesia Intelligence Institute, Ridlwan Habib.

He says there are three groups hostile to the appointment, one of which fears his reputation as an honest cop, who would enforce the law strictly and indiscriminately.

Another is an intolerant group that plays the narrative of SARA. SARA here in Indonesia is an acronym that means playing on the differences between Indonesia’s many ethnic and religious groups to incite discord.

The third group consists of JI, JAD, and pro-ISIS factions, such as MIT. They justify taking the lives of police because they are considered ‘thaghut..’ “

Thatghut basically means ‘heathen,’ and, to savage scum like the terror gangs mentioned, it’s open season on anyone who’s ‘heathen!’

Obviously, that third group is a clear and present danger, but I find the second category more noisome. 



Why on earth would anyone worry about how a cop worships God?

It’s firstly nobody’s business but his own, but if, as seems to be the case, he’s a good cop, he deserves the job, be he Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Confucian – those are Indonesia’s recognised creeds.

I’d say even if a man – or woman – were none of those, if he or she’s qualified, let him or her get on with it.

To any Islamopohobes who take issue, let me put forward a Canadian hypothesis.

Suppose you’re asked who you’d prefer a Prime Minister of Canada?

Two hypothetical choices. 

One, the current incumbent, Pretty Boy Turdo….


….with his vile record of seeking excuses for dirty terrorist swine like the Boston Marathon Bombers…

…or Tarek Fateh, the best kind of Canadian!

A Muslim Voice of Reason .

…who also draws his share of SARA, in Ottawa.
