    Just Outa Jail, Now It’s DEATH Threats? 


    Remember this fellow, with the unusual name (for an Indonesian!) whom we have discussed before?.

     “Unjust people, I will look for you one by one. I will kill you, no matter how many you are, for betraying Habib Rizieq, I will kill and I will destroy.. “

    https://www.suara.com/news/2021/11/25/162918/video-habib-bahar-ngamuk-viral-dudung-didesak-beri-gebrakan-tertibkan-yang-bikin-onar

    .

    Rizieq the Fanatic

    ..I will kill them one by one.”

    And if, like any sane person of any creed, you are appalled…

    …well, his audience was not!

     “Allahu Akbar,” cheered the participants, in a mosque for a ‘Prophet’s Birthday’ celebration, in Bekasi, just across the Jakarta city limits.

    Needless to say, this video has received much attention

    Smith the Fanatic’s lawyer has said his client’s fury dates from when his hero Rizieq returned from exile – self-exile, accurately- in Saudi Arabia…

    Rizieq the Fanatic

    .

    …as if that excuses the blood-curdling rant.

    Most decent Indonesians probably take the view of Ruhut Sitimpul, a politician from the moderate PDIP party.

    Don’t feel that because you are already a prison alumnus you are a champion!”

    https://www.jpnn.com/news/kalimat-ruhut-sitompul-menohok-habib-bahar-ichwan-membalas-begini

    PS –

    It seems the video also featured an admiring Sobri Lubis.

    Remember HIM?

    Just watch the video-

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7RLCXNdKF4

    – which shows him issuing his call for his devout audience to ‘Bunuh, Bunuh, Bunuh (KILL KILL KILL!) Ahmadis, a peaceful, utterly inoffensive religious minority

    Child-Marriage And Indonesia’s “Scholars!” 


    We have often had to comment on the words and actions of the MUI….

    Death To Corruptors, MUI? Why Not Terrorists?

     

    …Indonesia’s Council of ‘Scholars’ – a state-subsidised body.

    They are not backward about coming forward with opinions on just about anything…

    “A Wise And Noble Step?” Islamic ‘Scholars’ On Terrorist Unleashed In Indonesia! 

    Syamsul Maarif,  General Secretary of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) Jakarta

    “If the act of adultery is by a married person, then stoning is the sentence, while if unmarried, then it’s whipping,” he said.

    and it’s fair to say that I have rarely agreed with their pronouncements.

    This month, however, they are in the news again, after a 15-year-old child, a student from the State Junior High School (SMPN) 01 Namrole, South Buru, Maluku…

    …to whom the idea of child marriage is repugnant.

    I waited patiently for several days to see exactly what would happen in regard to this ‘marriage,’ which had not, it seems, been officially registered..

    Update! Good News!

    Good kids – students from one of the junior high schools in Buru Selatan, Maluku and teachers demonstrating against the early marriage that happened to a student at the school. 

    :…
    The chairman of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) of South Buru Regency, Maluku, Ambo Intan Karate has officially canceled the marriage of his daughter, who is still in junior high school, with an ustaz from Tangerang, Banten, named Latif
    NB ‘Ustaz’ is the word for Muslim cleric. 
    .. 

    So has this father undergone some kind of spiritual revelation?

    Ambo admitted that he canceled his daughter’s marriage due to mediation by the South Buru Regency Government and the local education office.. https://amp.kompas.com/regional/read/2021/10/13/173042478/batalkan-pernikahan-putrinya-yang-masih-smp-ketua-mui-buru-selatan-semoga

      The father needs to show he understands that child marriage is always wrong. MUI central can help by making it known no child may be marrying.

    Really, Fadli? Indonesia’s Anti-Terror Unit ‘Islamophobic?’ 


    It’s been a while since we took note of any words of wisdom issuing from Fadli Zon.

    And he can usually be counted on to say something remarkable, as when he came out with this shocker! 

    “I strongly believe that the supporters of Habib Rizieq love peace…

    Jakarta Boycott Reality Check? Ask Fadli, Caught Smiling With Trump! 

    WHAT?

    .

    You may recall that the supporters of Habib Rizieq, the recently banned sectarian vigilante gang that called themselves the ‘Islam Defenders Front,’ were NOT noted for loving peace.

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

    Rizieq’s son-in-law presumably qualifies as a ‘supporter.’

    The FPI include many cowards, certainly.…

    fpi skulk in mosque

    IslamoNazis V Freedom-Fighters? – Some Chicken, Some Neck

    ..but mob-handed, they could be as brave as…

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

    ..what, hyenas?

    But back to  Fadli!

    He’s a legislator, a well-known figure in Indonesia’s Gerindra Party, well-travelled…

    .

    Hasil gambar untuk fadli zon trump candidate

    .oooooooo

    …at ease with the great and good.

    But how about his latest outburst?

    Fadli Zon said that the Special Detachment or Densus 88 Anti-terror Police should be disbanded.

    Good grief!

    ..

    Densus88 have been doing a splendid job…

    Makassar – One Less Foul Fiend In The World? 

    …for which we have often praised them.

    And for which they have in the past caught criticism…

    Jakarta Echoes of Gibraltar – How Dare You Kill Terrorists?

    …but not from anyone you or I would rate highly.

    But this week..

    Fadli Zon commented on the statement by the Director of Anti-terror Detachment 88 of the National Police, Kombes M Rosidi, who said that the Taliban had inspired terrorist groups in Indonesia.

    Back-Stab Biden’s disastrous pull-out from Afghanistan, where the Taliban, pig-ignorant sectarian savages, are now eagerly oppressing women ( and men, but the absurd sexist apartheid is somehow especially offensive) has probably inspired jihadist terrorists everywhere.

    The sight of those primitive brutes, sporting fire-arms and revolting unkempt beards…

    (which are NOT a religious requirement – most Muslim men in Indonesia are unbearded – like Fadli!)

    …swaggering around Kabul?

    Certainly the Taliban’s inspiring terrorists, as Pak Rosidi said.

    So why is Fadli troubled by that truth?

    Well, while he admitted that ‘acts of terrorism must be eradicated….’

    ..Fadli continued –

    This kind of narrative will no longer be trusted by the people – it smells Islamophobic….”

    .

    Huh?

    Indonesia is about 90% Muslim!

    It’s very probable that Densus is similarly composed.

    It’s very probable that Pak Rosidi’s initial ‘M’ indicates his religious affiliation.

    In what alternative universe can these realities be construed as ‘Islamophobic?’

    But we’re not done yet!

    Because Fadly thinks that –

    ..it is better if Detachment 88 is disbanded... ‘

    https://zonapekanbaru.pikiran-rakyat.com/riau/pr-1672757105/minta-densus-88-dibubarkan-fadli-zon-berbau-islamifobia

    Scary, yes?

    This man isn’t some obscure nonentity but a big noise in Indonesian politics!

    However…

    I doubt if Fadly will get his wish.

    The best way to ‘eradicate acts of terrorism’ is surely to get more terrorists eradicated!’

    .

    .

    So I hope the heroes if Densus 88 continue doing their righteous work.

    But perhaps because of my familiarity with the fight against other evil sectarians..

    .

    .

    …it’s hard not to think of the heroism and sacrifice of other brave officers…

    .

    .

    …betrayed, their force disbanded to appease the forces of darkness.

    Hidup Kretek! Ayo, Ada Petisi! 


    I know a significant proportion of my readers are in Indonesia, so I am offering this petition for their perusal.

    It’s addressed to President Jokowi!

     

    .

    https://www.change.org/p/pekerja-industri-rokok-lindungi-iht-sektor-padat-karya-lindungi-sawah-ladang-kami

    Mr. Jokowi, please help so that workers in the labor-intensive sector can still work during the pandemic

    Dear Mr. Jokowi,

    We all realize that Indonesia has not been free from the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic. All industries are affected, including the Tobacco Products Industry (IHT). This situation worries us all.

    In the midst of a difficult situation like this, we, the Federation of Tobacco Tobacco Workers Unions – All Indonesian Workers Union (FSP RTMM – SPSI) which is a federation of trade unions that are directly responsible for the fate of cigarette workers, always feel a recurring concern every time. years as a result of the Government’s policy of increasing the excise rate on tobacco products every year.

    The total number of our members is more than 243 thousand. Of these, more than 153 thousand are workers in the cigarette industry.

    The policy of increasing the excise tax rate on tobacco products has a very broad impact on those of us who depend on the tobacco sector for their livelihood.

    We understand that the Government has given “breath” to the Hand-Rolled Cigarette (SKT) industry by not increasing excise rates and selling prices in 2021. This needs to be maintained.

    Thus, workers in the hand-rolled kretek cigarette sector are saved and can continue to work. Do not let this sector decline again, as has happened in the last 10 years. SKT is a specialty of our country. SKT is also a labor-intensive industry that absorbs a large number of workers with limited education. More than 60 percent of our members work in the Hand Kretek Cigarette sector. 

    The increase in the average excise duty on machine cigarettes in 2021 is a very high increase, stifling the industry and workforce, especially in the midst of this difficult pandemic situation. This increase causes a decrease in production which is quite high in certain groups. As a result, workers are victims.

    As workers in a national industry that is legal, independent, has also contributed significantly to the state’s income and has been a place for workers to depend on for decades, we want to be given the opportunity to survive and grow. Not the other way around by giving emphasis which ends up sacrificing the workers and tobacco and clove farmers

    ‘Djakarta 1966’ – Complex Film, Lovely Scenes! 


    While the film I watched earlier this week was fairly easy to follow…

    G30/PKI? Today’s Marxist Threat Is CRT! 

    ….especially since it had English text to turn to, last night we had a much more complicated movie….

    0000

    Poster Film Djakarta 1966

    …but I watched it anyway.

    It’s the story of the aftermath of the attempted 1965  Red take-over of Indonesia…
    .
    .

    .

    …how President Soekarno was eased out of power and effectively exiled to his palace in Bogor, outside Jakarta.

    .

    Sukarno ( many spellings were changed – like Dj/Jakarta)

    .

    He had tied himself too closely to the treasonous PKI, so despite his popularity (for his role in the struggle against the Dutch) the serious anti-communists figured he’d have to go.
    Unless you’re fascinated by modern history, you’d maybe not sit in thrall throughout the film. But it was SO refreshing…

    Funds for Demo

    ….

    ….to see huge crowds of young people demanding that the red PKI vermin be put down.

    Patriotic young people, both Muslim and Christian! 

    If only young people, in the West, today, had such a smart grasp of how wicked marxism is 

    The scenes of ‘old’ Jakarta, much of which was still around when I moved here a little over two decades ago, were also enjoyable…

    .

    Some areas still haven’t changed!

    .

    ….and though many can fairly say a lot of freedoms were lost back then –

     

    Suharto was no softy!

     

    – it does seem to have been in other ways a country very much at ease.

    For one thing, just about all the women and girls to be seen had nothing covering their lovely black hair.

    Clearly 1982, when the movie was made, was relatively unsullied by the drab Arabisation that has spread relentlessly in recent years.

    Interesting to note how the notorious Indonesian Red conspirator Syam, even in 1965, was using the deceitful word ‘progressive…’

    .

    ….to describe his PKI subversive forces, as big a lie then as it is today!

    https://www.city-journal.org/political-leftists-progressives

    Trans TV sometines has movies worth watching, enjoyable action like Taken, repeats, but never mind.

    However, last night, a film WELL worth watching.

    Pengkhianatan G30S/PKI
    Lobby card, showing five main characters and the text "Penumpasan Pengkhianatan G 30 S PKI" as well as a scene from the film

    Original poster

    Very old, but its obvious old-fashioned technical production made it all the more authentic, a record of the evil that the PKI..

    ( with the eager assistance of Red China, where communist cruelty….Red China – A Hundred Years, A Billion Tears?..still rules today)..

    …inflicted on Indonesia.

    The Communist Party of Indonesia would have inflicted infinitely more, had the marxist take-over been successful.

    ..

    Don't burn booksa 1965 demo by the totalitarian hypocrites of the PKI, the Indonesian Communist Party, in the heart of Jakarta.

    ..oooooooo

    Much is made by present-day left media of the large death-toll, and indeed I wondered on a previous anniversary…  

    Jakarta Media And 30 September 

    …if the Jakarta English-language media will be up to their usual nonsense this weekend, that annual (or even more often!) muddying of the historical waters on the anniversary of the 30th September 1965 put-down of Communist subversion.

    Jakarta Post – Never Miss a Chance to Re-Hab Reds! 

    ….and many, besides the communists ( who got what was coming to them!) did die, many simple dupes, recruited by PKI propaganda into peasant and labour fronts.

    Less innocent fronts also existed, like the ‘intellectuals’ in LEKRA, one of the worst being Pramoedya, whom we’ve discussed before….

    Kompas TV Talk-Show Exalts PKI Collabo Pramoedya! 

    Tempo, issue May 16-22, 2006 – an extract which explains why some 25 “prominent literary figures and cultural observers” put their distinguished names to a formal submission to the Magsaysay Award Committee in 1995, protesting at that body’s decision to give Pramoedya an award.

    =

    Their reasons were simply stated, viz his unethical role during one of the darkest periods for creativity during the Guided Democracy era, when he led the persecution of artists and literary figures who disagreed with him.

    (this protest is air-brushed out of most Western references nowadays, though a brief mention is to be found in an otherwise slavishly pro-Pram article in the Economist  http://www.economist.com/node/168819 )

    —-

    When the red vermin failed, some found sanctuary under the protection of their sponsors, the Chinese Communist Party….

    …who are still around, spruced up a bit, but as the people of Hong Kong will surely confirm…

    ..

    Spot the difference! Clue, moustache!

    Today’s Question – Is Beijing Better At Hiding Virus Data Or Gulag Gang-Rape?

    .. just as demonic.

    A good film, and a good reminder, but that old kind of marxism is unlikely to re-emerge.

    What is ravaging civilised countries today is a plague, called cultural marxism.…

    “We are trained Marxists.”
    — Cullors, BLM co-founder

    In the West its worst variant is called ‘critical race theory…’

    The truth?

    Parents in Loudoun and Fairfax counties in Virginia aren’t old-line racists and segregationists but educated, affluent and diverse citizens in the elite suburbs surrounding Washington, DC.

    Contrary to the narrative about white families lashing out against an influx of black students, Loudoun County has roughly the same proportion of blacks as it did 20 years ago; the highest rate of population growth has been among Asians and Latinos, who, according to a recent Rasmussen poll, oppose critical race theory by a two-to-one margin — the same as white voters.

    In nearby Fairfax County, the leader of the parent opposition is an Indian-American woman, Asra Nomani, who has blasted critical race theory for reducing academic standards and discriminating against high-performing Asians… https://nypost.com/2021/09/27/left-leaning-medias-latest-lies-about-critical-race-theory/

    .

    …a toxin designed to turn societies into cauldrons of hate and resentment.

    It’s been a few years since I taught at local universities.

    Back then I saw little sign of cultural marxism…

    …but in today’s high schools?

    What kind of stuff is oozing into English lessons as ‘current affairs’ reading material?

    Hogwash about the racist BLM and so-called ‘racial justice?’

      With so many films that set out to be hostile to anti-communism, this was a welcome change.

      But the censorship?
      Not from when it was made fifty years ago butfrom the government censors today, was almost embarassing, the stupid blur slapped over the nude statue in the Istana, and even stupider, were there really blurs slapped on lit cigarettes?

    … and we have recorded its evil presence, many a time.

    According to Merdeka.com, up to 16 people were identified as suspects after a pack of rabid bigots wrecked an Ahmadi mosque in Sintang, West Kalimantan, ‘some time ago.’

    That ‘some time ago’ seemed puzzling, but it turns out that, although about 300 cops were called out to the scene of the mayhem, it’s only now the scumbags who ran amok are being targetted.

    Why?

    A senior local policeman, Head of Public Relations of the West Kalimantan Police, Kombes (Pol) Donny Charles is quoted, viz.

    “…when the incident occurred, his officers did not take firm action against the protesters, because they were prioritising security and protection of local residents from the tantrums of the mob… 

    …..so, at the time of the incident, police did not arrest the crowd who had been acting anarchically….a soft approach is also a wise step,” he explained.

    One can see his logic but at the same time…

    There has been so much vile, vicious and entirely unjustifiable persecution of the Ahmadiyah.

    Not just here in Indonesia but in Pakistan, a maelstrom of intolerance…

    .

    …and every other leader, to show solidarity in the face of the plague that began in the Wuhan lab, it seems more than usually tragic…

    .

    ..

    …that a rabble of pig-Ignoramuses think it timely to stage a sectarian amok-run.

    One has to wonder if those swine just woke up one day and decided to be demonic….

    .

    .

    ….or if they were incited by some local goat-beard brute pretending to be ‘religious,’ urging them to ‘bunuh, bunuh bunuh.’

    Such murderous incitement has been heard in this otherwise lovely country.

    And currently, we read that the cops in Kalimantan are ‘focused on safeguarding the 72 people or 20 families of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat and the building of houses of worship

    We all hope the rigorous rules enforced, the PPKM, against Covid 19 succeed in its eventual eradication.

    As for the hate-plague, it’s up to courts of law.

    .

    .

    If each pig-ignoramus convicted of nvolvement in the mayhem got 30 years behind bars, that would be a fine start.

    The nasty little brutes, aged 5-12, ‘broke off crosses of 12 Christian graves in the public cemetery on June 19.’

    Mayor Raka went to the scene and was suitably appalled.

    .

    We will close the school and dismiss its teachers because they are teaching intolerance to their students, Raka told reporters after the visit.

     He added that the ‘school’ had no permit from local government and ‘urged police to prosecute the teachers and punish the students despite them being children. Their actions were a gross act of intolerance, he said.

    Curiously, the report says the ‘school’ has not been named, yet goes on to quote its head, a man calling himself Ustad Mujair (‘ustad‘ just means cleric)

    He denies  ‘teaching intolerance or that teachers encouraged the children to vandalize the graves.’

    It’s important to emphasise that this kind of behaviour is uncommon here and most Muslims abhor it.

    For example, when I told a Muslim friend of mine about the blasphemous act of some American red nazi Antifa or was it BLM scum, who burned a Bible…

    .

    ‘…protesters with “Black Lives Matter” signs toss Bibles into the inferno….’  demonstrators exhibited their rage by burning Bibles and American flags.’

    Which Is More Hated By BLM? Their God Or Their Country? 

    ….her first words were-

    ‘Sudah ditangkap? ‘

    ‘Have they been arrested yet? ‘

    These pesantren – ‘religious schools’ – have long been a concern here. These posts from some years back tells you more about them.

    Islamist Pesantren Leaders in Indonesia – Pluralist or Primitive

    I pass one on my bus journeys around Jakarta often, and see no signs of such unpleasantness among the young people who go in and out. But they can be put to evil use by Islamist fanatics.

    Just put the word pesantren into my ‘search box’ and you may see for yourselves what can go wrong.

      I hope Solo Police will arrest the teachers and find out who has made these children do this criminal desecration.
      The mayor must make sure the case is taken serious.

    Amnesty Asses Bray At Indonesia! 


    I try to avoid reading the Jakarta Post…

    …because its record of double-standards appals me.

    Tempo’s English-language version is usually more interesting and better written.

    However, one of my readers drew my attention to a recent JP story….

    Indonesia recorded an increase in the number of death sentences last year…

    https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2021/04/22/capital-punishment-on-rise-in-indonesia-driven-by-drug-offenses-amnesty.html.

    …which, at first sight, is good news indeed, but, when we read on, it turns out that most of those executed are drug-offenders.

    Why on earth are the numerous terrorists captured by Indonesia’s security forces…

    …notably by the zealous Densus 88, not being put down as they deserve?

    The report also includes a lot of bleating from the notorious Amnesty…

    .

    ….which purports to be all about ‘rights,’ but has some distinctly dodgy aspects…

    Amnesty? Shamnesty! Making War On Free Speech

    ….who make much of possible problems with the currently necessary on-line trials but are in fact implacably opposed to any capital punishment, anywhere.

    Most Indonesians, happily, seem to support their government’s death penalty policy.

    In many Western countries, by way of contrast, governments persist in the folly of abolition…

    …despite righteously wrathful public demand for execution of evil murderers and terrorists.

    Even in the USA, the sensible approach of President Trump…

    Lisa Montgomery Joins Manson, Guevara And McGuinness!

    Were It Not For Trump, Justice Would NOT Be Done!

    …has been replaced by the supine, senescent Biden…

    …who won’t even deport the most savage of alien offenders.

    Indonesia is lucky to be free of such decadence.

      Of course we want to execute murderers and terorists why will we not?
      I never knew all that about Amnesty. Now I think better they stay in Europe.
