    Another Fanatic Friday? Avoid Downtown! 

    The sectarian zealots are really making a meal out of their latest excuse for shuffle-strutting.

    Arrest The Pastor!’ Demand By Top Jakarta Legislator!

    To you and me, it might seem archaic to want a man arrested for what I, at least, regard as the mediaeval ‘offence’ of ‘blasphemy!’



    But we know there are bloodthirsty primitives out there, or at least out here..

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

    …who think arrest would be a mere appetiser.

    Whatever you think, the fanatics will be causing traffic problems in Jakarta tomorrow, 25/3, so unless you have urgent business in town tomorrow, best stay home.

    I was planning to go shopping for bacon…

    ….but that’ll keep till Saturday.

    What’s all about?

    It’s that PA212 mob, who intend to stage a rally in front of the State Palace….


     to ask for blasphemers to be arrested.


    Not just one alleged ‘blasphemer,’ not just the pastor, but Indonesia’s admirable Minister of Religion, Gus Yaqut…

    Jakarta New Year Hope? Pak Gus Pondering Repeal? 

    Menakar Kapasitas Yaqut Cholil Qoumas sebagai Menteri

    Yaqut Cholil Qoumas…

    Indonesia – Fiery Fury Over Freedom Banners – But Good For Gus! 

    ..and verily an all-star cast!

    “Arrest and imprison the religious blasphemers Yaqut, Saepudin, Abu Janda and others,” said PA 212 Chairperson Slamet Maarif. . 


    As usual, I ask why these people insist on calling for ‘thousands’ of their fans to show up on a Friday, a working day…



    …maximising inconvenience to normal commuting Jakarta folk.

    Sunday would make more sense.

    Not All Refugees Are Fake Refugees! 

    We all know that many, if not most, of the aliens imported by Merkel are unsuitable, to say the least, as residents of civilised European countries.

    Cologne Migrant Who Licked And Groped Girls Laughs As He Walks …

    They were all asylum seekers!” Told You So!

    German Girls Forced Into Shariah Dress-Code By Sex-Pest Syrian Ingrates

    They are ingrates, too…

    Crimmigrants Seize Italian Cop-Shop – Punishment? ‘Specialised African Cuisine!’ 

    …and arrogant.

    They are also not ‘refugees,’ as they prove again and again by their refusal to stay in safe countries…



    …ever eager to find more succulent tax-troughs like Britain’s or Germany’s or up further north in Scandinavia, especially to Sweden, which is such a spineless place that they don’t even deport those who rape their women and children.

    Crimmigrant Rape Gangs Get Green Light in Sweden

    But that’s not the whole story!

    Shammi Haque, blogger, Bangladesh

    “People in Bangladesh can’t say what’s on their mind. There is no freedom of speech at all and every day the situation is getting worse. I’m a social activist and blogger and my topics include religion.

    “Islamists don’t like this.

    “They already killed six bloggers – my friends – so I decided to leave the country. I want to return but I don’t know when and if it will be safe.”


    I’d say that this pretty young lady would qualify as a refugee by anyone’s standards.

    And I’d also suggest that she and others like her would be welcome in any Western country, an excellent exchange when governments get enough guts to start deporting ignorant savages like these…



    …who are clearly unfit to be part of any society where decency and democracy are esteemed.

      We should be prepared to take her in if she wants to come here.
      As you annd others have said more than once, people like her can be a real benefit to countries they are given shelter in, because they can spread the word, from first-hand experience, of how sharia is a threat to every freedom we used to take for granted.
      Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, women’s rights to be treated as equal to men in the eyes of the law, the ideology the sharia gang carries with it wherever it goes is deadly ro Western civilization.

      I have heard you say that Western countries should accept the Ahmadis if they ask for asylum.
      I go along with that same as I go along with this.
      Indonesia is nowhere nearly as bad as Bangladesh but how long is that going to last?
      With the election next year, the vice-president candidates on both sides worry me a lot but I intend to hang in here.
      My Indonesian colleagues say they wish you would write more about Indonesia.
      I hear you are still here but most of the people I knew in my first ten years are gone now and most of the others are talking about going.
      Its a damn shame.

    Seminar Shut-Down – Why Not Shut-Down IslamoNazi Intimidation? 


    Perhaps bored with intimidatiing defenceless people themselves…

    FPI in West Java – ‘Let’s Burn Out the Orphans!’ 

    …they instead decided to try to get the cops to do their dirty work for them.

    “We were asked not to go ahead with this seminar because the FPI asked the police to prohibit the activity,” said Ready Chairman  Aip Syarif Hidayat

    Several Ready representatives were summoned to police headquarters to explain the seminar ..they were questioned about what was to be discussed

    Api says he told Police Chief Susnadi that the seminar would only be talking about “themes of nationality….. strengthening the four pillars of nationhood as in Pancasila, the 1945 Constitution, the Republic of Indonesia, and national unity,”

    Alas, the top cop, having received complaints from the FPI that Islamonazis found fault with Ready’s outreach to peaceful religious minorities, was unhappy.

    “We do embrace all groups,” said Aip, referring to Ahmadiyya and Shia, two creeds hated by the white-shirt hoodlum. As a result of this police ban, Aip was forced to postpone the implementation of the seminar. “We postpone to respect the police,” he said.

    The Police are now denying they banned the seminar.

    Their observations are mind-boggling.

    West Java Police chief spokesman Sr. Sulistyo Pudjo Hartono said Tasikmalaya Police only warned that if the seminar were held on schedule it would invite insecurity.

    “I likened it to being on a plane and there’s a cumulonimbus cloud. Then the tower officer asks that the plane not recklessly pierce the clouds,  find another way. Likewise Tasikmalaya Police duties in matters of the seminar,” said Pudjo 

    A better analogy would be if a plane’s following its legitimate flight-path and a bunch of deranged louts threaten to start firing at it. Yes, the plane could divert, but might it not be smarter for law enforcement to swoop on the demented brutes, using all necessary force, including authorised fire-arms, then lock them up.

    Not in West Java.

    Pudjo rambled on. 

    “So it was the committee itself that ultimately postponed the seminar activity because we’d told them of their vulnerability. And they understood,” he said.

    On the part played by the IslamoNazi FPI, Pudjo not argue. According to him, the issue of belief in Tasikmalaya is still a high potential threat of religious harmony.

    Reducing that potential, by cracking  down on jihadist gangsters, might not be a bad idea, right? Do cops not have a duty to protect citizens’ civil liberties? Like freedom of speech and peaceful assembly? 


    “They (the organizers) see the social pressures from those who hold different beliefs.”

    Mind you,West Java’s record is so bad we shouldn’t be too surprised…
