    Javanese Voices Heard – ‘No Fanatics, Thanks!’ 


    In Kendal, not the English Lake District area but the Indonesian regency, in Central Java, there’s a man named Nanang Supriyanto.

    He’s the coordinator of Kendal Community Alliance and this week he was speaking to other citizens concerned about the antics of Rizieq the Fanatic, who has rarely been out of the news here…

    .

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

    …since his return from Saudi Arabia.

    Nanang Supriyanto didn’t mince his words!

    There are many scholars and ulama who always give lectures in a polite and cool manner.

    Unlike Habib Rizieq, who always speaks in a provocative tone that can cause division in the Republic of Indonesia.’

    https://news.detik.com/berita-jawa-tengah/d-5267852/aksi-dibubarkan-polisi-massa-larung-poster-habib-rizieq-ke-sungai

    .

    Kendal rejects Rizieq!

    ..

    That Kendal demo was on Tuesday, and the crowd who cheered his words dispersed peacefully at the request of police concerned over the distance rules prescribed against the Chinese Virus.

    No childish anger against law enforcement.

    As Pak Nanang said,.“We fully support the steps taken by the TNI-Polri in upholding the rule of law, especially against HRS….”

    He said they didn’t want Rizieq in their part of Indonesia.

    We hope that people throughout Indonesia will also take action like this,” he added.

    Their demo sounds like it was not just responsible but fun, too!

    The demonstration was followed by a theatrical action which tells of Habib Rizieq coming to Kendal and being rejected by the Kendal people….

    .

    .

    …the crowd then carried a float of a poster with a picture of Habib Rizieq to the Kendal River…

    Kendal is far from unique.

    .

    .

    In Bandung, West Java, an enthusiastic crowd burned Rizieq propaganda material.

    Here’s a link to a video. https://jabar.inews.id/video/video-massa-di-bandung-bakar-poster-habib-rizieq-depan-dprd-jabar

    This is all a reflection of widespread concern over the behaviour of Rizieq and his vigilante gang, expressd in forthright terms, so different from mealy-mouthed ‘intellectuals!’

    Good Job Well Done! Yet Jakarta NGO Nags Find Fault? 

    More about all this tomorrow…and the next day!

      That rag is not respected any longer and neither are all the other newspapers and tv channels that have been covering for that hater.

      This poisonous woman was not born in America and has no place in a civilzed democratic country. She should go home but she might not get to be so mouthy there.
      I do not think many Somalis approve of incestuous marriage.

      The same goes for Rashida Tlaib, who has no grounds to complain about being told to go back to the Middle East.
      She very openly wrapped a Palestinian flag round herself when she was elected to Congress.

    And the ruler can rule out anything  he doesn’t feel like discussing.

    That report was in The Leftal, sorry, The Local, but the UK’s Telegraph was also a useful read on Macron’s contempt for the whole idea of democratic consultation.

      We had Cameron’s famous consultation on queer ‘marriage’ and look what that meant! He pushed it through, no referendum.
      Macron is just as bad, worse, because he has excluded migration, because he knows that French people would say no more!

      It sounds like Macron’s usual slippery self, shamed by public anger that he omitted immigration from his grand debate but still determined to prevent the French people having a meaningful say on the issue.
      He is now allowing discussion of something called migrant ‘quotas’ but will brook no challenge to his policy of bringing ashore regular supplies of un-vetted fake refugees.
      It is gratifying that the far-left, including politicians from his own party as well as the extremist ‘SsOS Racisme’ are furious that he dares to let anybody from the common people have even that much of a voice on even that much immigration.
      Moreover, Marine Le Pen’s followers have attacked his late and half-hearted inching towards democratic dialogue on the migrant menace, as you rightly call it.

    Book-Hating Bigots V Peaceful Religious Dissenters – Cops As Referees? 


    I hope you had a pleasant weekend.

    I did.

    But a congregation of decent, peaceful, inoffensive Indonesians did not.

    An Islamist mob showed up to ‘reject the launch of a book called Haqiqatul Wahy on Saturday, planned to have been held in the Ahmadis’ Mubarak Mosque, in East Bandung.

    Accompanied by a number of police and TNI officials, dozens of people who claimed to be a combination of 27 mass organizations in Bandung, including the organization of the Islamic Defenders Front and the Sundanese Champions broke up an Ahmadiyah gathering.

    Clarification for new readers, on this latest shameful affront to Indonesia’s once proud principles of religious tolerance –

    ‘TNI’ means the country’s armed forces.

    And the Ahmadiyah are the most persecuted, yet paradoxically the most peaceful and inoffensive, religious minority in the land.

    And the ‘Islamic Defenders’ Front?’

    That’s the FPI!

    Here’s a picture to illustrate their concept of religious tolerance.

    =

    =

    Oh, yeah, that’s about Buddhists, and then there’s women…IslamoNazi Gauleiter – “Women Already Have Limitations, Let Alone Non-Muslims!” …and as for their previous record on Ahmadis, read this –FPI in West Java – ‘Let’s Burn Out the Orphans!’ 

    The Ahmadis’ bigot tormentors have made their lives a misery for years, oppression which intensified after the self-styled ‘scholars’ of the MUI issued a fatwa against them…

    =

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

    …a dogmatic diktat soon followed by the infamous Tri-Ministerial Decree promulgated ten years ago, under President SBY.

    Here are a few previous posts to bring you up to speed with the evils done to them over the past decade or so.…

    In Squalid Internal Exile, Lombok Ahmadis Denied Voting Rights 

    ==============

    But back to Bandung this past weekend, where the mob was ‘overseen by police and armed forces,https://news.okezone.com/read/2019/01/05/525/2000379/acara-peluncuran-buku-ahmadiyah-haqiqatul-wahy-dibubarkan-massa and the bigots’ vehicle was seen to display ‘black and white banners which in Indonesia are identified with Hizbut Tahrir, which was banned last year.’

    Not only that, but they maintained that their grotesque intolerance was justified by the local (West Java) regulation version of the afore-mentioned Tri-Ministerial Decree -‘which already clearly outlaws activities of Jemaah Ahmadiyah.

    So said Muhammad Ro’in, Chair of the Indonesian Islamic Da’wah Council, a spokesman for the mob, adding a rant about the theological content of the Ahmadi book, which, he declared, meant that stopping the book-launch was ‘not a violation of the human rights of the JAI followers.’

    ……..

    The Chairman of Jamaah Ahmadiyah Indonesia (JAI)  in Bandung, Mansyur Ahmad, felt that what was happening was unjust, but simply said that he accepted their fate at the hands of the mob, quoting an Ahmadi motto, ‘Love to all, enmity to nobody.’

    ‘They have agreed to disperse of their own accord at 10.30am,’ said Ro’in, while one ranting Islamist yelled that if they did not disperse, ‘we will go in there!.”

    =

    =

    At 10.30 the bigot rabble were duly loitering at the scene, with dozen of cops simultaneously on duty there.

    The officer in charge, Irman Sugema, denied they were taking the side of the intolerant mob.

    “No,no, actually we police are on guard. If we weren’t, they might already have gone in there…we are on guard.”

    =

    He stressed that the police were working to prevent clashes between the two sides. According to him, the event ended one and a half hours earlier than scheduled, based on an agreement between the two parties facilitated by the Coordinating Board of Trustees of the Society of Communities (Bakorpakem) in Bandung and accompanied by police and the TNI.

    Commander Sugema appears to think that the job of the police is to prevent mayhem.

    Keeping the peace is of course important.

    But equally, allowing bands of fanatics to threaten mayhem if decent people do not cease and desist from perfectly respectable, legitimate and plainly peaceful activities?

    That’s not what many people, here in Indonesia and abroad, expect of the constabulary.

    I personally can’t see any moral equivalence between people holding a harmless book launch and a pack of intolerant bullies.

    The cops have batons and guns and could have dispersed the louts who came there to cause trouble.

    The atmosphere had heated up when several people uttered utterances of hatred and harsh words.

    One of the journalists present, Rio Tuasikai, nearly became the victim of mob violence for recording  one hate-freak’s outbursts.

    Rio was dragged off by five of the louts and forced to delete his film.

    Were they arrested?

    Were there any arrests for ‘SARA?”

    That’s the Indonesian term for incitement to ethnic or sectarian hate.

    =====

    Anyway, too depressing to go on about this. My Indonesian readers can use any number ofl inks to learn more.

    I’ll wind up with a little more more context.

    This hatred for books among Islamist fanatics is nothing new.

    We even had a book-BURNING, Nazi-style, a few years ago…

    =======

    …in which Indonesia’s largest publishing company, Gramedia, gleefully participated!

    And it should be noted that a mob of savages even managed a Koran-burning, again a few years ago…

    Iniquity Of Polygamy – Bandung Mayor’s ‘Men Only’ Plea! 


    Bandung Mayor Ridwan Kamil, a social media aficionado, told Idul Fitri masses gathering at the Gelora Bandung Lautan Api stadium in the city that it was better for married men in Bandung to not commit polygamy.

    In most civilised countries, polygamy is outlawed.

    Here in Indonesia, however, there is official disapproval, but there’s no ban, and a quite a lot of backward men do indulge in it, notably Islamist fanatics.

    Kontroversi Poligami – Shariah Sexists Shrilling Stridently! 

    What I personally find most disgusting is not that some men are so over-sexed that they can’t be content with one wife…

    .

    ….but that the law lets them get away with it – whilst making NO provision for similarly over-sexed women to enjoy reciprocal carnal indulgence.

    =

    =

    If a man can have four wives, both justice and common sense surely require that a woman can have four husbands – both scenarios sound God-awful to me, but…

    …well, fair’s fair, yeah?

    ==

    .

    Polyandry, of course, is NOT countenanced under any circumstances!

    But Ridwan, whom we have met before in these columns…

    Pluralism? Muslim Sermons on Public Buses? 

    Bandung Mayor Reports Twitter Twit to Cops – Understandably! 

    ‘Bandung, City of Pigs!?!’ 

    ….does not try to argue the case against polygamy on the grounds that it is obviously iniquitous!


    Mayor Ridwan Kamil

    He is, you see, a 2018 West Java gubernatorial election hopeful – so he’s actually courting the votes of single males!

    “I call on married men here to not commit polygamy. Please have pity for those men who have yet to find a partner in life,” said Ridwan..

    What about women who are single?

    Aaah, but perhaps Ridwan’s audience was segregated?

    I suppose if all those single blokes do get hitched, the single Bandung chicks (who are generally very cute) will, by logical corollary, get snapped up.

    But it seems superficial to preach against a social blight on such mundane, self-interested grounds.

    Still, Ridwan DOES have a reputation for joking.

      Very happy holiday to you, Ross and thank you for making me laugh. That cartoon is so funny and tells women how silly it may be to have many husbands.
      I wish the crazy men who think they can have many wives need to go live in some crazy country like Arab Saudi.
      Indonesia women do not want to share husbands.
