    Not Only Ahok’s Future But Indonesia’s… 


    It’s a public holiday, declared by President Jokowi to give everyone in Indonesia a chance to get to the polls today, 15th February, local elections nationwide.

    Here in Jakarta, my home for many years…

    i-love-jkt.

    … the last thing they’ll care about is what we foreigners, resident or abroad, have to say about the choice they’re making.

    That’s why I have waited till polling stations have been open for several hours (well, that and because it’s a holiday and it’s nice to sleep in then sunbathe out front!) before wrapping this up and posting it.

    It’ll be 2pm, I think, when they shut. 

    I will have no impact on anyone’s vote, but then neither will the distant thunder of mainstream media pundits in Australia or anywhere else.  http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/inquirer/governor-ahok-fault-lines-across-jakarta/

    Indonesians can think for themselves and there are few major issues about voter fraud.

    Unlike in the USA –

    obamacrimmigrant

    …some states are so notoriously slipshod in their controls (California, Virginia and New York…come to mind) that it would be shocking if many illegals didn’t vote.

      • …which upset far more than just the poor people who lived there, it will show the world that a majority of citizens in the capital of Indonesia are not susceptible to sectarianism.
      • Please note, 90% of the capital’s voters are Muslim, so even if Ahok only gets through to a run-off, it will show there are MILLIONS of Muslims…

    Good Muslims Speak Up For Threatened Christian Governor 


     …here in this ever-interesting city, who have no time whatsoever for the venomous jihadist demos we have, to our disgust, heard and seen for months now.

    True, where Jakarta goes, there’s no guarantee the rest of the archipelago will follow.

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

    But if he loses, for whatever reason, or even worse, gets knocked out in today’s first round, that will be perceived as a triumph for the ugliest IslamoNazi elements in the land, the savages whom we have mentioned before…

    ………….

    …whose view – I guess they’d not deny it –  is ANYONE but Ahok.

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

    It need not have had to be like this.

    If his two opponents had spoken up, denounced the jihadist vendetta against Ahok, criticised him for whatever they think he’s done wrong…

    ….

    … but told the world that under NO circumstances should ANYONE ever be prosecuted for the ‘crime’ of blasphemy, then whoever emerges victorious tonight, Jakarta’s reputation would not suffer.

    But instead, we had both his rivals attend last weekend’s ‘prayer session’ which we had to mention last night.

    They could respectably have gone to pray elsewhere.

    Unsurprisingly, I suppose, Agus Yudhoyono has STILL not disowned his father’s infamous call for universal religious censorship.

    Agus, of all people, as a representative of the younger generation, should have stood up for a modern-minded appreciation of free expression, written, drawn or spoken, on matters of creed.

    Ever since this ‘blasphemy’ carry-on began, with Ahok’s good-natured observations at that Thousand Islands public meeting…

    An Apostate Attacks Ahok – Denies Right To Criticise! 

    … we have seen the ugliest face of Islamist intolerance leering and looming ever larger in the public sphere.

    Whether Indonesia can pull through this time of aberration, I honestly don’t know.

    I hope so, but deep down, I fear not.

    Jakarta – Decent Muslims Challenge Islamist Witch-Hunt! 


    Home at last, and just in time, as I can hear the rain beating down outside.

    However, this morning I was delighted to wake to another sunny Jakarta day, and even more delighted to see the headline in The Jakarta Globe this week…

    We are devoted Muslims, not offended by Ahok’s statement…

    The report comes from the Pulau Seribu ( Thousand Islands) – just off the northern shore of our ever-interesting capital city – islands where I once spent a most pleasant short break.

    ===========

    • The islands are a popular weekend destination for less affluent people here, not expensive to reach or to stay over for a night or two.
    • But they have been in the headlines a lot here recently…
    • ahok Jakarta’s Governor Ahok
    • …because that was where Governor Ahok made his jocular aside for which the worst elements in Indonesia want him put to death.
    • “We encourage the government to process the death penalty for Ahok as soon as possible,” said Rizieq.  http://www.suara.com/news/2016/10/14/134313/

    • That’s Habib Rizieq, so-called ‘high priest’ of the self-styled “Islam Defenders’ Front” – the notorious white-shirt vigilante gang, the FPI.
    • But now the overwhelmingly Muslim population of those islands have made their voice heard, refuting the bigot claim that his joke was ‘blasphemy.’
    • The Chairman of the Al Makmuriah Great Mosque board there, Faturrahman, set the record straight – he was actually present when Ahok made his speech that day – by saying that what Ahok said was not insulting and did not defame Islam…We are devoted Muslims, not offended by Ahok’s statement …
    • It’s to be hoped that many more decent Muslims will dissociate themselves from the witch-hunt, perhaps in response to the way some of the fanatics openly talk down to them.
    • Last week, the FPI, who are notoriously sexist as well as sectarian…

    …hit a new low in talking down to Muslims who don’t share their arrogant attitude, by which I mean their claim to be more qualified than others on who is and who isn’t Muslim enough.                       Jakarta Mosque Mayhem – IslamoNazi Louts Silence Moderate!

    Their Jakarta Gauleiter, Habib Novel Bakmukmin  – the same geezer who dissed women with that outburst about their ‘limitations’ – seemed to evince an almost archaic snobbery when he  called the residents who laughed upon hearing Ahok’s statement –

    …….

    Hell, that sounds as stuck-up as some of the pinko expats who send me insulting snobbish comments about how I so disgracefully live and work and dine out among ordinary Indonesian folks.
