    Sorry, Barnaby Joyce – Appeasement Is No Argument! 


    A narrow defeat for common sense in Australia, where federal conference of the National Party voted by 55-51 not to support a burqa ban.

    =

    =

    Although George Christensen MP pointed out the obvious security risks of allowing head-shrouded undesirables to roam about ‘in government buildings and other public spaces,

    It seems the delegates in Canberra preferred to follow their party leader, Barnaby Joyce, whom, in the past, I have defended, when he was insulted by that hideous ABC leftist Triola…

    …but henceforth I may be reluctant to take up bloggy cudgels on his behalf.

    I quote the Deputy Prime Minister’s deeply principled ‘hands-off-the-bag-heads’ argument.

    ====

    Barnaby Joyce says banning the burka could damage Australia’s trade relations with Islamic countries, including Saudi Arabia And Indonesia..

    .http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-09-09/joyce-slaps-down-burka-ban-push-citing-trade-relations/

    I’m tempted to observe that it’s a bit offensive to bracket Indonesia  (where I’ve lived happily for nearly two decades, and where perhaps 1 or 2% of women wear the revolting head-gear) with an absolute sectarian monarchy where women are such second-class citizens that, last I heard, they’re not allowed to drive a car!

    So Saudi Women CAN Look Like Women!?! 

    But let’s move on.

    Since when do Australians tailor their domestic laws and customs to keep in with foreign countries?

    If Joyce had come out openly saying he thinks that shariah sexism is just jim-dandy…

    =

    =

    …I’d be disgusted, but somehow muster a modicum of respect for his candour.

    But he doesn’t say that. He’s quoted in another newspaper as opposing a ban ‘despite disliking the burqa.’

    So for Barnaby it’s not about security or about rescuing women from a barbaric dress-code, but merely a matter of dollars and cents?

    One is obliged to ask just how low Australia’s Deputy PM is prepared to sink to appease Saudi Arabia.

    Please note the Saudis have a bad record of arrogant intrusion into the internal affairs of more civilised countries.

    =

    =

    Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries accused Norway of doing too little to protect its Muslim minority, with Saudi Arabia calling for all criticism of religions or their prophets to be made illegal.

    What next, Barnaby?

      You got it right. We should ban the head-bag.
      If they want to wear it indoors, it’s up to them, but not outdoors where it’s an insult to every Australian principle.
      The same security principle should be used to prohibit Antifa masks too.

      Before this Barnaby Joyce was a sensible man, I always thought, but now I am having a re-think.
      I feel sorry for those women in Arabia but I don’t see how we can do anything for them.
      So why should Australia worry what they think about our country?

      Unless he’s saying both countries allow women a free choice on burka-wearing?

    Borobudur Threat – Buddhists Fear Bigot Backlash! 


    Fake news articles and photos about the Rohingya’s suffering in Rakhine State have also been circulating on local social media, causing even more anger and frustration over the continued violence against the minority group in Myanmar.

    Borobudur is not only the world’s biggest Buddhist temple but one of Indonesia’s major tourist attractions. I’ve been there more than once.

    …it was not unreasonable to assume they might set their sectarian sights on the mighty temple, which stands near Jogjakarta.

    Fanatic Indonesian Islamists Plan Myanmar Jihad! 


    A little alarming to read that a petrol bomb was thrown at Myanmar’s embassy in on Jl. Agus Salim in Central Jakarta early Sunday.

    I was only last week walking along that street, dropping by a nearby office to meet a friend.

    But I saw no signs then, among the everyday Indonesians walking to and fro, to confirm the rest of the sentence in that report, that anger grew across the mainly Muslim archipelago about violence against Rohingyas in Myanmar. 

    However, that’s just my walk-about impression.

    There undoubtedly are some people in this lovely archipelago who are greatly exercised about what’s going on.

    In East Java, the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ aka FPI is reported to be sending volunteers to Myanmar for jihad…FPI Pasuruan region has reportedly opened registration of jihad volunteers to help Rohingya…

    FPI Akan Kirim Relawan Berjihad ke Myanmar

    Anyone interested in signing up who is between 17-20 years old, please note you need to bring a note from mummy or daddy to do so!

    Exactly how these ‘jihadists’ plan to ‘help’ is not quite clear. We sometimes hear Islamic spokesmen telling us that ‘jihad’ is not necessarily violent but rather can be interpreted as a spiritual struggle.

    However right or wrong that explanation may be, I think, given that the FPI has been photographed with a blood-thirsty banner parading their sectarian hatred around the streets of Jakarta…

    .

    ….it is not unreasonable to assume that they may not be entirely committed to a peaceful approach!

    The white-shirted vigilantes are in any case notorious throughout Indonesia for their readiness to resort to violent tactics.

    What overseas readers need to realise is that almost everyone here has a tale to tell of encounters with malign men – almost always seems to be men – who tap you on the shoulder, which puts you under the ‘fluence, then when you regain your senses your wallet is gone.

    Far-fetched?

    Not according to many seemingly sensible Indonesians I’m well-acquainted with.

    It doesn’t work on us foreigners!

    Now and then, waiting at bus stops, somebody will tap me on the shoulder, but merely to initiate a conversation, like ‘where are you from, mister?’

    I of course reply civilly – if it’s a lady, VERY civilly! And that’s the end of the episode.

    Or maybe they really ARE wicked hypnotists and when they grasp I am unmesmerised, they fall back on conversational gambits!

    Kasihan Destiara? Yummy Model Demands Apology! 


    What’s going on in Kendari?

    ==

    In the normal run of events, most everyone here, and even more abroad, would be hard-pushed to answer that question.

    Kendari is a city in Sulawesi, which is rarely in the news.

    But a yummy model’s righteous wrath has put it in the headlines this week, with the city’s mayor having to come all the way to Jakarta to answer questions about what transpired between His Honour and Destiara Talita…

    …………

    …who is, as you can see, exceedingly yummy.

    The mayor she’s reported is Adriatma Dwi Putra and last week he attended the Jakarta Police headquarters.

    I won’t offer a photo of Dwi…

    ( a member of the PAN, party, by the way, which I’ve written about previously  –‘Moderate’ PAN Fanatic Bribes Muslims Into Prayers!   -though I’ve never so far written about Kendari’s Mayor Dwi)

    …as he’s not as enjoyable to look at as Desti, but there’s a pic of Police HQ, which I pass on the bus most times I go into town.

    The Model v the Mayor?

    I imagine this story will run and run, as who said what about, or to, whom, is gradually determined.

    Desti maintains that, not only had she been Dwi’s significant other for some time prior to his recent election, and that he’d pledged marriage, albeit not proper marriage but something called ‘nikah siri,‘ a kind of informal arrangement…The Corner: Nikah Siri (Unregistered Marriage) ….

    …but that, flushed with political success, he backed out of the plan and, worse, dismissed her as a prostitute, allegedly compounding this insult by suggesting she was both ‘poor‘ and ‘stupid.’

    Harsh words.

    Curious, because she doesn’t look stupid, nor indeed like a whore, and I checked her out on another site, where, I discovered, she’s listed as a reporter, student, politician AND has a bra size 34B.

    Kebangkitan Sundelbolong? A New Free-Flow Horror? 


    Suzanna was a brilliant and beautiful Indonesian actress, who died a few years ago, after making dozens of films, most, certainly the ones I’ve seen, of the supernatural variety, in which she often played Nyi Loro Kidul, the Goddess of the South Seas.

    Or one of Her Majesty’s various kin!

    ====

    But another legendary character she played was that of Sundelbolong, one of the wide range of fantastical phantoms here in Indonesia, which I have mentioned in the past…

    Pocong! Kuntilanak! Sundelbolong! Wewegombel…Ghosties and Ghoulies of Indonesia 

    In the case of Sundelbolong, she (a lot more of ‘she’ than ‘he’ in the horror pantheon here!) is distinguished by having a hole in her back, often with writhing worms and maggots milling around within!

    ===

     Hasil gambar untuk sundelbolong

    I’m not sure if it was the Suzanna ‘Sundelbolong‘ movie in which I saw a very funny scene, where a yummy young lady wanders into a warung (street eatery) and orders a beer!

    Ah, for the good old days -now you can’t even get a take-away bottle from your local minimart, such is the kill-joy climate imposed by sectarian bigotry!

    The gal quaffs the large beer in seconds, orders another, and after half-a-dozen, consumed at similar speeds, she’s inevitably attracted an audience of impressed local guys!

    Then she introduces herself as ‘Sun.’

    The men stare at each other, chorus ‘SUNDELBOLONG’ and make a sharp exit!

    ===

    ===

    The beer, you see, was simply pouring out of her back!

     One of the good things about Suzanna’s good old films is that they tended to feature attractive women, whose appearance was what one is entitled to expect of attractive women in films, like these pretty wenches below.

    =========

    Hasil gambar untuk suzanna nyi roro kidul

    ….

    Sadly, when the good old movies get a re-run on tv, the priggish censorship currently in vogue imposes opaque clouds, to ensure their thighs, mid-riffs, cleavage etc., are childishly obscured!

    Dimana Bokong2nya? – Where Are Our Buttocks? 

    But now we read there’s going to be a re-make –

    Remake of Suzanna’s best horror film slated for 2018 – The Jakarta Post

    -so I hope they can match Suzanna’s characterisation  of the heroine!

      I hope they cast Depe in the role. She is perfect for it.

    Indonesia’s Intolerants Find New Excuse To Whine! 


     Good news, mostly, for decent Indonesians, whose government has urged officials to stand up to mob pressure…

    =

    Gambar terkait

    =

    …after Muslim and nationalist protesters called for a 30-meter-tall statue of a Chinese deity erected in a temple complex in an East Java town to be torn down.

    This is refreshing, coming at a time when bigoted Islamists have been riding high after Jakarta’s Christian Governor Ahok was imprisoned for ‘blasphemy’ merely for quoting a Koranic verse.

    So Has Indonesia Come To This? Paradise Lost? 

    The statue of Guan Yu in Tuban, East Java, is said to be Southeast Asia’s tallest such representation of the deity. 

    Bigoted ‘protestors,’ some wearing paramilitary-style outfits have been ranting that “We are not worshippers of idols”.

    So?

    • Does anyone wish to make them ‘worship idols?’

    Obviously not.

    But of course they know that full well, just as we know that the real reason for their ranting is nasty sectarian hatred.

    We’ve seen it before, in another Indonesian city, Tanjung Balai, in Sumatra, very far away from East Java.

    Indonesia Inquisition Ministry Turns Guns Against Buddhists –Statue Downed at Islamist Behest 

    The enemies of religious liberty there were equally up in arms about this statue…

    ==

    And that episode did not end well for the decent people in that neighbourhood.

    It’s important, however, to note that there was another President then ruling from the National Palace in Jakarta.

    So well said, Teten Masduki, chief of staff to President Jokowi, who spoke to the media last week.

    “If they ask for the statue to be torn down, authorities cannot bow to such pressure.”

     http://jakartaglobe.id/news/statue-chinese-god-stokes-tension-muslim-majority-indonesia/.

    Unfortunately, the Jakarta Globe fails to identify the sponsors of the intolerant rallies. A previous mealy-mouthed report would only say they were from ‘certain groups,’ a meaningless phrase but common enough here.

    So let’s have them named and shamed!

    Equally, unfortunately, the Tuban statue is currently shown in the media photo as partially covered, appeasement of the ignoramuses, it seems.

    Hasil gambar untuk patung tuban

    President Jokowi would win widespread approval if he ordered his National Police Chief to get that fanatic shroud hauled down, and instal some well-armed cops around the scene, with orders to get stuck into any jihadist jerks who stick their bigot snouts in.

    It’s hard to imagine any argument which might be adduced to justify deportation of anyone to the hideous tyranny that rules from Pyongyang.

    Yet this very month we read that Indonesia has deported Taiwanese law-breakers to Red China, where, as the recent shameful treatment of that dissident exemplified –Liu Xiaobo: China’s most prominent dissident dies – BBC News – justice is not something that is often to be seen or heard.

    Taiwan’s foreign ministry said its deported nationals were among over 140 Chinese and Taiwanese suspects arrested in raids on July 29 in various locations including Jakarta, the city of Surabaya and on the resort island of Bali. 

    =

    If these guys are guilty, or not, they should be dealt with here in Indonesia, or deported to their own country.

    And all the more so because the police and courts there are answerable to the people, in stark contrast to the situation on the mainland…

    =

    …where an unelected communist dictatorship continues to cower from free elections and dispenses marxist ‘justice’ which, in every country ever ruled by marxists, has been shown to be no justice at all.

    Indonesia, of all countries, should be fully aware of the nature of Beijing’s ruling class.

    It was the interception of Red China’s despatch of thousands of guns to the traitorous PKI (Indonesian Communist Party) back in 1965…

    ===

    ====

    ….which fully opened the eyes of Indonesian patriots to the threat of red take-over.

    Nowadays Mao’s heirs may wear suits and smiles as they impose their will on the Chinese people, but they have never repudiated the monstrous Mao as their inspiration. The Communist Party fist remains tightly closed on the reins of control.

    Yet Taiwanese, citizens of the Republic of China, not the so-called ”People’s Republic,” are nevertheless handed over to that closed fist?

    One can only hope this deportation policy will be reviewed and that it is not being operated as a means of promoting commercial links with the larger market which economic advisers perceive.

    ‘Kota Setan?’ Devil City In Java? Fanatics Fume Over Festival! 


    Well, how many of you, dear readers, paid attention to recent comments emanating from the FPI, the self-styled ‘Islam Defender Front?’

    None of you, probably, if you live overseas!

    But here in Indonesia, ever since President Jokowi chose to share a platform with Habib Rizieq, the FPI ‘High Priest,’ one is surely ill-advised to ignore their utterances, however bizarre.

    Rizieq, on the left, Jokowi, on the right

    So Has Indonesia Come To This? Paradise Lost? 

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

    And they don’t come much more bizarre than the latest outburst from the white-shirt vigilante gang’s Purwakarta gauleiter, Muhammad Syahid Joban.

    ———

    It’s not exactly the first time that Islamist fanatics have shown signs of stress over matters relating to that provincial city.

    In 2011, a pack of sectarian louts went on a rampage of vandalism against various statues of legendary figures from the widely revered Ramayana pantheon… 

    ==

    ………….

    Then in 2015, they got their (presumably white) knickers in a right twist about massive resistance to their activities by decent Muslims, when Rizieq’s appearance there had to be protected by police.

    Bravo, Purwakarta! IslamoNazis Cower Behind Cops – Again! 

    0000

    This time that geezer Syahid was in a tizzy, railing at the popular and entertaining local regent, Dedy Mulyadi, because of a festival in the West Java city.

    “Never participate in the Jurig Festival,’ ranted Joban.

    Why?

    =

    Well, it seems the cultural festival has been outrageously focusing on culture, not religion.

    And one of the traditional carriages in the photo was allegedly used to bring a buffalo to a ‘polytheistic’ event. Joban was in the news last year, when he tweet-scolded Jokowi for having had the carriage to the National Palace!

    http://www.panjimas.com/news/2016/08/13/ulama-purwakarta-pak-jokowi-kenapa-anda-bawa-kereta-jurig-ini-ke-istana/

    =====

    Like, uh, why, we might be tempted to ask again!

    But not, perhaps, if we read the Viva.com article all the way through.

    It becomes clear that the white-shirts are still harping on their grudge against Dedy Mulyadi…

    Islamist Insanity – ‘He’s Married The Goddess of the South Seas!’ 

    …which we’ve noted in the past!

    The fanatics reckon Dedy nurtures hopes of becoming West Java’s Governor!

    ‘Don’t ever let that happen!’ says the Gauleiter, who wound up the rant by warning his fans not to fool around when it came time to choose regional leaders.

    “Otherwise, Purwakarta will become a ‘Devil City!'”

    ==

    Ooooh! Scary!

    Or….WOW!

    Such a transformation might promote a different brand of tourism from that our in-coming Jakarta Administration is said to be contemplating.

      Java people all respect history and love legend of Java like with the statues and only FPI has problem with that.

      Better they stay at home and be unhappy like they always are unless when they make trouble for people who like to be happy…

      These are same people who want to kill Ahok because his words give them bad temper.
      Also same people who hate religious freedom in Indonesia and same people attack warung in Ramadhan as you many times show foto in your blog.
      Also same FPI that say they want to kill Buddhis in Myanmar.
      I do not think the festival in Purwakarta is the the devil that make Indonesia feel scary.

      Every time i read that FPI hate Dedy Mulyadi I think more and more that Pak Dedy will be a wonderful Governor in West java.
      The real demon place in Indonesia is Aceh where they whip girls for nothing.
      I wish all FPI may go to Aceh and then Aceh people may rise up and free their province. I will be happier if President Jokowi may order FPI dissolve but I think he is not the man to do that.

    So Saudi Women CAN Look Like Women!?! 


    I guess we always suspected that the female population of Saudi Arabia included a lot of yummy chicks.

    =====

    =====

    It stands to reason that, beneath those repulsive shrouds they’re forced to wear, many are attractive.

    But proof positive at last!

    And it’s causing an uproar.

    Threats to prosecute the slender young gal in the photo below, named Khulood, it seems, for wearing an ‘indecent’ mini-skirt?!?!

    What Dark Age do these people live in?

    The Saudi writer Ibrahim al-Munayif told his 41,000 Twitter followers that if everyone disregarded the law in this way there would be chaos.  https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jul/18/saudi-arabia-video-of-indecently-dressed-woman-at-heritage-site-prompts-investigation

    No, daftoid, there would be a glimmer of hope that your benighted country is at last becoming civilised!

    But then he makes a very interesting statement!

    ——–=

    “Just like we call on people to respect the laws of countries they travel to, people must also respect the laws of this country,” he wrote.

    ===========

    So what is Mr. al-Munayif telling ‘migrants’ from the Middle East, Pakistan, etc. who choose to settle in civilised Western countries?

    That they must repudiate the iniquitous shariah laws which treat women as second-class human beings?

    That Londoners, New Yorkers, normal folks in Toronto and Paris and Sydney, should no longer have their street scenes blighted by burka-clad bints wandering along, about three or four subjugated paces behind their men?

    If so, he’d be doing more than that lousy appeasement artist, Theresa May.

    Theresa May hails ‘benefits’ of Sharia as inquiry set up

    But I doubt the sectarian sexists who oppress Saudi women really would encourage alien immigrants in the UK to accept civilised standards of behaviour.

    Even here in Indonesia….

    ……

    Miss Indonesia contestants, 2013.

    …..

    ….where many of its lovely women do behave like and look (very much!) like women, we have shariah fanatic outfits who wish to see women coerced by men.

    “Fathers and Husbands, their ‘aurat’ is your responsibility!”

    000000

    I imagine that kill-joy Welya woman from the MUI, the Indonesian ‘Scholars’ Council, has not changed her dismay at seeing lovely ladies unashamed to display their God-given femininity! 

    —————————

    …the Aceh model is a good example…most importantly, wearing the hijab must meet three conditions. That it’s Shariah compliant, conceals the genitals and shows no curves

    ‘Scholars’ on Scarfs – ‘Must Be Shariah-Compliant, Hide Genitals, Show No Curves!’ 

    Of course she’s not actually talking about ‘genitals.’

    That’s the dumbo Google Translate interpretation of ‘aurat’ – a catch-all word for ‘private parts,’ which, to the backward brigade, includes thighs, belly-buttons, hair (of course) but even shoulders!

    Pathetic!

    But at least here in Jakarta, there’s no shariah gestapo harassing women whose delightful appearance might provoke primitive passions.

    Not yet.

    0000000

     

    ‘Immoral Activities – Sitting in Coffee Shops Laughing and Talking…’ 

    I wish I could say the same for all of Indonesia’s provinces!
