    Ever Hear of the Moron Mansoor Abdul Hakim? 

    A midnight thought on the credibility of books, not novels but ostensibly non-fiction books written by drooling cretins.


    One such cretin is apparently Mansoor Abdul Hakim.

    Here’s an extract from his scholarly tome “Women Who Deserve to go to Hell.”


    • sexism
    • ——————–
    • “Men’s perfection is because of various reasons: intelligence, religion, etc,” Hakim explains. “At most, four women have this perfection.”

    No, it’s not a joke book, but sold as serious reading in the Islamic Bookstore…

    …in SYDNEY.


    The Islamic Bookstore in Haldon Street, Lakemba / Picture: Adam Taylor


    Hakim is a lame-brained moron indeed, but laughable.

    However, the place also gets away with retailing hate literature.

    Another book there contains the following assertion –    “No one can deny the fact that the Jews are the worst kind of barbarian killers the world has ever known!!!

    That’s from ‘History of the Jews!’ These books were reportedly on sale there in the second half of last year. Have the police moved in and closed down this hate-sty?

    No, because it was in the news earlier this years, when we heard that the book store owners want political leaders to do more to promote harmony with the Islamic community. - 

    Might be easier if they cleaned up the filth on their shelves!



    Or have the police at least removed the hate-literature made available by the sectarian management? 

    I got my info on this, and much else, from the Aussie media –        … http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/last-drinks-in-lakemba-tim-blair-takes-a-look-inside-sydneys-muslim-land/ – read the whole article!

    It exerts a kind of horrid fascination and reminds me of what Nigel Farage had to say about his trip on British public transport, on which he hardly heard a word of English.

    Lakemba may be only 30 minutes from the centre of Sydney, yet it is remarkably distinct from the rest of the city. You can walk the length of crowded Haldon St and not hear a single phrase in English. On this main shopping strip the ethnic mix seems similar to what you’d find in any Arabic city.

    How many similar comments might be heard in countries in Europe too? 

    I find nothing at all disagreeable about shopping amidst a throng who speak another language. But I live in Indonesia. I adapt, as any civilised person should. No problem – I like Indonesia, even though one comes across Nazi-style elements here too, as we saw when the Jakarta Post’s parent company, Gramedia, revelled in a Hitlerian book-burning. 

    Grovelling Gramedia’s Book-Burning Bonanza – Appeasing Fanatics 

    • burning books Gramedia’s Hitlerite book-burning
    • ====================

    Yet most people here are pleasant and civil. Three Cheers for Jakarta, Where People Are Normal and Nice! 

    Lakemba, by way of contrast, sounds a hellish place.


    The Sydney story was occasioned by the closure of the Lakemba Hotel, one of those typical old-fashioned watering holes that are unique to Australia.

    Now it is no more.

    • I dare say it’s not the only good thing destroyed by multiculturalism, that insane policy that permits the importation of primitives who refuse to adapt. But sad, nevertheless….

    Intan, Jember, Dangdut Diamond! 

    Decided to look in on Indosiar’s Dangdut Akademi show again, after a brief personal boycott in protest at the elimination of that cute Kedari kid, Erna.

    Dangdut Akademi – Aku Akan Rindu Erna! 

    And my change of channels was rewarded by a sighting of a real little gem, with beautiful big eyes, Intan, from Jember!


    Intan means ‘diamond’ and she is a jewel.

    Dewi Persik was one of the jury, looking yummy as always, and I have to say even Inul Daratista, on the judges’ panel, looked nice tonight, having discarded those silly hats she’s been wearing, her hair done attractively.

    I think Inul’s mood is related to her appearance, because she was much less of a cross-patch too!

    But I didn’t stay with the programme too long – they have a fat fool mincing around the stage whose presence mars the pleasant vista, so I moved over to catch the O Channel movie.

    Had to see how many imbecilic censor clouds they’d manage to plaster over cleavages. glasses of wine and cigarettes this evening.




    Why does Indonesia’s censorship board have a down on all that makes life a delight?

    Alas, O Channel had that ancient movie, Darkman, which had been on less than a week before! So I found the Java Jazz Festival on a hitherto unknown channel called MiX, and stuck with that.

    Who Calls People Names? Jakarta Councillors Shame Their City! 

    Relaxing tonight, off to buy a book or two tomorrow, through the hot and turbulent Jakarta I always feel at home in. It takes a bit of getting used to, but if you don’t love Jakarta, you’ll leave soon enough.
    I’ve been here for more than a decade and a half!
    So I hate to see it shamed by loudmouthed louts.
    The sorry bleating we heard from an IslamoNazi whiner a few months ago, immortalised in our headline -

    Fanatic Islamist Wails At Christian Governor – “He Calls People Names!” 

    habib salimx   Salim Alatas, Jakarta FPI Gauleiter –

    “He is not a Muslim and he is too arrogant, his words are rude and he calls people names!” 


     – may well be repeated, more rationally, if the sectarian gang leader (Salim Alatas, of the FPI ) is capable of consistency.

    But this time not at Ahok!

     I quote from the Jakarta Globe yesterday

    …council deputy speaker Abraham Lunggana of the United Development Party (PPP) interrupted, saying that Basuki was being rude to the mayor.

    “Contain your emotion, sir! Don’t shout, Mr. Governor! Don’t act like a thug, Mr. Governor!” the PPP politician shouted..

    This would be the same PPP leader, nick-named Lulung, whom we mentioned a while ago, a man who doesn’t scruple to join an IslamoNazi rally   -https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2014/10/07/jakarta-islamist-thugs-batter-defenceless-woman/  –
    - and who was last year part of a story in the Jakarta Post – Tanah Abang, the busiest commercial district in the country, is said to be run by thugs who take their orders from United Development Party (PPP) councilor Abraham “Lulung” Lunggana.  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2014/10/01/idul-adha-livestock-merchants-brawl-with-officers-tanah-abang.html
     Anas Effendi
    Lulung’s unpleasant outburst was in response to a blunt question – not an insult -aimed by Basuki (aka Governor Ahok) to the Mayor of West Jakarta, Anas Effendi, about  an enormous amount of money spent for school equipment which, according to the schools, they neither need nor asked for…whose prices are highly inflated from retail listings. Jakarta police say they are investigating that case.
    ahok Ahok
    Sounds like Ahok’s questions were worth asking. But if you question some things too closely here, you step on sensitive toes, it seems.
    Insulting the Governor, who is the best thing that’s happened to Jakarta this century, was apparently the ‘in’ thing at the meeting.
    “This governor is a thug,” shouted one politician. “Don’t pressure your men,” shouted another.
    Reporters in the meeting room also heard the words “stupid” and “dog” being inveighed toward the governor….
    The tantrum brats were irrepressible!
    The room erupted into a shouting match with council members shouting and cussing at the governor, while others banged on the tables and doors creating more racket.
    Methinks Jokowi regards the moron element’s antics as water off a duck’s back.
    At least the Islamonazi was honest enough to admit his hostility is rooted in the basest anti-Christian bias.
    These clowns ought to skip the pretence that Ahok has done anything wrong.
    Although in their view, I suppose, he has, born the wrong colour, wrong race, wrong religion.

    Colonialist Cristina Cowers From ‘Assassin’ Accusations! 

    Hey, my visitor has gone home, leaving my little house spick and span, and I have now surfaced after a deserved nap!
    And I have just been watching the President of Argentina on tv, looking as hot as some of those exotic Blok M bar dancers!
    And I’ve been enjoying her performance almost as much as I have enjoyed some of theirs.
    The news programme featured the widow of the man who had uncovered Kirchner’s ‘cover-up,’ the protective cloak allegedly spread over the sectarian mass-murder of Jews in Argentina.
    If it is ultimately proven, President Kirchner will be up there in the anti-semitic pantheon along with that other Argie prez, Juan Peron, who in 1945  welcomed Mengele, Eichmann and many other sedulous servants of the Nazi Party.
    Kirchner already shares with Peron the imperialist urges which Argie expansionists nurture, ranting incoherently about subjugating the British population of the Falkland Islands, to which Buenos Aires has not a shred of legitimate claim. 
    One has to wonder if Kirchner would do to those South Atlantic Brits what her predecessors did to Argentina’s mainland indigenous population – a fair imitation of Hitler’s genocidal policies. 
    Indians of the Gran Chaco Argentina c1935
    Wipe-out, near enough!
    Certainly, my own old home, that fine farm in Ontario, was – and is, though it’s not ours any more –  once upon a time the hunting ground of the Red Indians; but Canada has no territorial ambitions against peaceful neighbours these days. 
    Unlike Argentina!
    She began by suggesting the investigator killed himself, but now she’s been blaming ‘rogue’ elements of her own intelligence service.
    Her regime’s collaboration with Iran’s Islamist tyranny will no doubt be gradually uncovered.
    But meanwhile, I’m sure our British kith and kin in the Falkland Islands are even more delighted than usual that her colonialist schemes  – as with those of her predecessors – were and are thwarted by HM Armed Services.
    Another reason to remember Maggie fondly!

    Cur Qureshi and Amnesty – Don’t Say We Weren’t Warned! 

    No time for sun-bathing today, a pleasant visitor on the way here, so no more blogging till later…but first…

    As two major so-called ‘British’ so-called ‘charities’ come under the spotlight for their support for the subversive CAGE outfit, whose spokes-swine Qureshi lauded Jihadi John’s charm and gentility, it’s useful to remind everyone that they have known for a long time exactly what sort of creatures they have seen fit to subsidise.

    Don’t dare say any of it came as a surprise!

    • oooo


    Gita Sahgal’s dispute with Amnesty International puts human rights group in the dock

    The champion of womens’ rights has accused it of losing its moral compass over its association with Moazzam Begg    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/apr/25/gita-sahgal-amnesty-international

    That headline comes from the Guardian almost FIVE YEARS ago!


    • begg Good question!
    • Begg
    • ———-
    • Begg is of course the Gitmo git who was allowed to walk free from court and who has not been deported from the UK, despite his involvement in the organisation which has become infamous after Qureshi’s disgusting outburst.


     Cur Qureshi


    The angry lady showed a lot more insight into the motivations of Amnesty – and CAGE –  than the British authorities evidently did, or have shown recently.


    Gita Sahgal


    In her first newspaper interview since leaving the charity altogether, Sahgal delivers a withering critique of her former employers, describing the modern Amnesty’s leadership as suffering from “ideological bankruptcy” and”misogyny.”


    civilised man v savage  – AND WOMAN!


    Although Amnesty is still one of the best known advocates of women’s rights in the world, Sahgal told the Observer that an “atmosphere of terror” prevailed inside the organisation in which debate is suppressed and staff are cowed into accepting the prevailing line.

    That was five years ago, and how quickly people forget uncomfortable truths.


    All the media malignants still run to Amnesty for insta-quotes when some new ‘human rights’ horror erupts into their tiny minds. I’m old enough to remember when they WERE a respectable body, urging freedom for political prisoners.

    Nowadays, if some vile criminal faces proper punishment, they roar and belly-ache cacaphonously. If ‘asylum’ parasites have a grouse about how they got caught in their crimmigrant enterprise, Amnesty’s bleating will be broadcast around the world, courtesy of their rotten collaborators in BBC, ABC or CBC.

    • Every Brit should communicate promptly with the Charity Commissioners – although I’m not sure if they’re worthy of the name either  – Plymouth Brethren Bad, Shariah Good?   – demanding that the Anita Roddick Foundation AND the ratbags at the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust ( I remember still when I used to walk by their London premises during my lunch-breaks decades ago and get thoroughly p==sed off by the brazen leftist propaganda on display in the window) be deprived of their charitable status.

    Here’s the link to their email address – https://www.gov.uk/complain-about-charity

      I’ll get right onto that.
      Thanks for letting us know about this.
      We never read the Guardian, bad for the morning blues, but we’re glad you do. It’s not a bad idea to see how the other half thinks!

    Bali Discriminates? No Complaints, Except – Still – About Besaki! 

    So the Balinese have plans to charge foreign visitors more when visiting provincial tourist locations?

    What’s to object to?

    It’s already done at Borobudur.

    borobudur-main-entrance Borobudur

    And it is, paradoxically, fair.

    If Bali wants to make money, it has to price its heritage sites in such a way as to pay for their upkeep. If they charge, say, ten bucks, for everyone, then how can a poor local family afford to see their own country’s cultural heritage? But ten bucks to a Japanese or Aussie tourist is a not unreasonable price to pay.

    If the charge for all is fifty cents, which poor Indonesians can afford, it’ll take a lot of foreign visitors to cover proper administration and maintenance of the sites.

    Bali people deserve applause for aesthetic appreciation.

    In Java, we’ve seen Islamist ignoramuses doing all they can to destroy their own rich history. See – Blasting Borobudur? ISIS, Enemies of Civilisation!  and  https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2011/09/18/ignorant-islamist-bigots-attack-indonesias-heritage-java-statues-wrecked/ 


    patung-bima-purwakarta FUI savages amok in Java


    Sadly, some of the foreigners who visit Bali are as ignorant, though not as moronic, as the FUI malignants.

    Sadly, some tourists never go to see any historical or architectural marvels. They go to bars and discos. (I like both, marvels and nightlife!)

    The bad side of the Bali news is not the price differential, but, as the head of the revenue section of the Provincial Government, I Made Santha, said “this will (only) be applied at tourist objects owned by the province.”  http://www.balidiscovery.com/messages/message.asp?Id=11617


     Bajra Sandhi


    The report mentions a couple of those, namely the Monument of the People’s Struggle (Bajra Sandhi) and Taman Budaya, both located in downtown Denpasar.

    But I fear that list does NOT include the Great Temple of Besaki.




    It is a fine sight to see, but almost every visitor I’ve ever met who’s gone there has been appalled by the scavengers who control it, scurvy layabouts who seek to extort tourists of any and every nationality.

    The whole area is immersed in a rip-off mentality, all the more offensive since it is a place of worship.

    The Governor should clamp down!

    Jakarta Post on Tempo- A Story Within A Story? 



    Interesting to see the Jakarta Post purporting to take an interest in freedom of expression.


    burning booksgramedia

    Grovelling Gramedia’s Book-Burning Bonanza – Appeasing Fanatics 


    Their own parent company, Gramedia, is  notorious as a collaborator in book-burning at the behest of sectarian fanatics.

    But now the JP, whose editors have never yet had the guts to criticise their pay-master’s shameful complicity with Islamist censorship, has published a story on what appears to be a threat to future press freedom.



    Go figure!


    The story is, however, important. And intriguing!

    The National Police are showing intense concern about the magazine Tempo, because it gave prominence to the suspicious bank accounts of a politically wired police general.



    The top cop in question is the man who almost became National Police Chief, General Budi Gunawan. And the immediate cause of the police activity against Tempo is a mysterious outfit calling itself the Indonesian General Society Movement (GMBI)


    That august body, whose leadership and membership and purpose is not revealed by the JP, reported Tempo for an article about Budi’s wealth, headed “Bukan Sekadar Rekening Gendut” (Not Just A Mere Fat Bank Account).


    So who’s behind the GBMI – I had to scan the search pages to find a name, somebody called Mohamad Fauzan Rachman. 



    I even found a photo, but no biographical background. Maybe some reader has info?

    It would be fascinating to learn more of this man who is so public-spirited that he felt his organisation needed to complain about Tempo’s exposure of Budi’s banking. Even his GBMI fascinates me, for its name – the JP translates it one way, but other media prefer to call it the Indonesian Grass-Roots Society Movement. Grass-Roots, not General, and I’d say the former translation is more accurate.  

    Which leads me to ask about the man – a ‘grass-roots’ movement’s leader, where I come from, would be led by a guy in casual clothes, not a uniform.  

    The GMBI alleged that by revealing the flow of funds, the magazine had divulged state secrets and violated both the 1998 Banking Law and the 2010 Money Laundering Law.



    Since when is the size of a modestly salaried senior police officer’s bank accounts a ‘state secret?’

    I append the link so you can figure it out for yourselves. Myself, I like Tempo, and would be sorry to see it go down.

    But the Jakarta Post’s change of heart on censorship or attempts thereat is worthy of a full-time investigative journalist’s attention.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think that will happen. Journos here tend to be a fairly weak-kneed, wet lot, with some exceptions.

    And the latter often get shot!
