Jakarta Fanatics? Monday Misery? Traffic Chaos?

Happily, I have no plans to go into town on Monday, a dental appointment meaning my only movements around Jakarta will be localised..



Not keen on the dentist’s attentions, but even so, I prefer to go there than face rhe inevitable traffic chaos….



…if large numbers of fanatic Islamists congregate at the Swedish Embassy, in Kuningan, not far from Mal Ambassador, as local media report.

Monday, Jan. 30, 11am, so it seems, rather than Sunday, when disruption to others would be minimised, a mob comprising members of ‘Alumni Brotherhood (PA) 212, National Movement to Guard Ulama’s Religious Edicts (GNPF Ulama), and the now-defunct Islam Defenders Front (FPI) will participate in the action.



We have of course discussed these groups often.

The ‘now-defunct‘ FPI was actually banned, and not before time…



…the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front, ‘ the FPI is gone




…but brazenly, the same extremists started a new FPI – Front Persaudaraan  Islam – Islamic Brotherhood Front  and its most notable personage?

Reuni 212, Habib Hanif Ajak Kibarkan Jutaan Bendera Tauhid dan Merah Putih

Habib Muhammad Hanif Al-Athos.

I quote him on an event in France.

 “Never mind, I don’t care. The virtual world says the young person was a  terrorist, I don’t care what they say, Brother….we are Muslims, the young person is a hero, Brother. Allahu akbar, that’s right,” shouted Habib Hanif.   https://news.detik.com/berita/d-5238100/mantu-habib-rizieq-sebut-bocah-pelaku-pemenggalan-di-prancis-pahlawan

Brutal Paris Beheader A ‘Hero,’ Says Jakarta Fanatic! 

None other than the blood-thirsty son-in-law of the former FPI imam, the ineffable Rizieq!

As for the ‘Alumni’

– a baffling choice of name, as only a few of those who attend their demos seem likely to have university degrees –

…please read previous reports…

…and make up your own minds.

And the GNPF?

That ‘F’ stands for ‘fatwa,’ and while not everything Islamic ‘scholars’ pronounce on may be troubling…


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!! 

Adam Created By Angel?” Islamist ‘ScholarsCall the Cops

.Cops – “Islamist ‘Scholars’ Can Veto Religious Liberty” 

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

 it’s fair to say that I have rarely agreed with their pronouncements.

Anyway, if you’re going into town on Monday…
