    Jakarta Fanatic’s “Death-Prayers” Condemned! 


    Praying for people to die quickly, with a bad tone and sneering, is bad morals not in accordance with the wisdom and purpose of holding the Maulid event,” said the Chairman of the PDI-P DPP.

    https://jakarta.suara.com/read/2020/11/16/132143/soal-doa-habib-idrus-ke-jokowi-dan-megawati-pdip-bukan-akhlak-yang-baik

    oooooooooooo

    That’s the party of President Jokowi…

    .

    .

    …and of former President Megawati…

    .

    .

    .

    ….who were targetted in a ‘prayer’ offered up by a sectarian fanatic named Idrus Jamalullail, at a recent mass-gathering ( don’t ask about the virus ‘distancing’ rules!) at the HQ of  the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ -the FPI….

    .

    .

    …who, as the murderous banner pictured above indicates, have a history of blood-thirsty outbursts.

    Ever since the FPI’s high priest, Rizieq, returned earlier this month from Saudi Arabia…

    .

    • FPI ‘grand imam’ Habib Rizieq who suggested the Christian Governor Ahok be slain for unacceptably quoting some Koranic verse –.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

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

    …there has been uproar here in Indonesia.

    Rizieq himself was caught on camera chortling, evidently entertained by the ‘prayer.’

    Good people are making their voices heard, and being abused for doing so.

    .

    Nifty Nikita, Foe Of Fanatics – And Has Good English, Too!

    The situation IMHO is best described as more saddenng than alarming but we will continue to monitor developments.

    All patriotic Indonesians, and we foreigners who have lived here for years and love the country…

    .

    .

    …need to keep on top of the news.

    Jokowi Faces New Fanatic Threat : ‘Civil Disobedience!’ 


    Recently I have focused much of my bloggery on the outrageous behaviour of Red China.


    The Beijing Bully Xi deserves every condemnation we here and many other voices all over the world have issued.

    In no way are such fulminations anti-Chinese, in the sense of hostility towards Chinese people, either those held in subjection by the Communists dictatorship on the mainland…

    ….or anywhere else.

    That’s self-evident!

    Our repeated expressions of solidarity with the brave young resistance in Hong Kong…

    ….and with Free China aka Taiwan…

    …and with the decent Chinese-ethnic Canadians and Australians…

    If Chinese Folks Come To Free Countries To Seek Freedom, WELCOME! Otherwise…? 

    ===

    Image result for pro-beijing sydney

    Communist vermin in Australia, confronting decent Chinese, just as happened in Canada!

    “This is Canada! Go back to China!”

    …make it plain we are NOT blaming Chinese people for the evil done by Chinese Communist despots.

    If, on the other hand, we, or anyone else, began ranting how nobody should be..

    =====

    “…opening the door to foreign workers, especially  Chinese…”

    =====

    …then we would be seen, rightly, as pandering to prejudice against Chinese people per se.

    That quote above comes from a collection of Indonesian Islamist fanatics, who have issued a declaration, in response to the detention of a notorious extremist, which would be laughable were it not, during the virus crisis…

    .

    China is Lying, Coronavirus started in Wuhan

    …so menacing.

     “We urge that the parties and officials who are carrying out an anti-Islam agenda immediately return the status of Habib Bahar bin Smith to the original condition of assimilation status…” 

    Asimilasi here refers to the prisoner virus amnesty.

    Skip the absurd accusation that the Muslim President Jokowi…

    .

    .

    …his overwhelmingly Muslim cabinet, and the more or less entirely Muslim high command of the security forces are even remotely contemplating an ‘Anti-Islam agenda!

    Skip too the notion that there are loads of ‘Foreign Workers’ (Chinese or otherwise) pouring into Jakarta.

    Smith, with fans

    We have noted that fanatic H bin Smith already…  

    Virus Amnesty – Indonesian Fanatic Released! 

    …and been appalled by the threat of a disorderly demo…

    Indonesia’s Islamists Threaten Mob Mayhem! 

    …but now the extremists are upping the ante, not just a one-off outburst of mayhem, but wholesale obstruction of the already shaky anti-virus effort.

    If these demands are not met, they invite all Muslims to undertake civil disobedience to the entire government

    https://www.suara.com/news/2020/05/24/122207/ancam-pembangkangan-sipil-fpi-hingga-mui-dki-desak-habib-bahar-dibebaskan

    The declaration of disruptive intent is reportedly published by a variety of individuals and outfits, the link above mentioning both the FPI and the MUI.

    The latter is the state-sponsored official council of ‘scholars…’

    and there are no doubt wayward members thereof…

    Islamist ‘Scholar’ in Racist Rant -“Ahok Anggap Jakarta Ini Sebuah Kota di Cina…” 

    We’re Not Racist, Just Bigots – So…About That ‘Chinese City?’ 

    …as we have recorded when we wrote often on that organisation.

    But it would be surprising, alarming, if the MUI as a body sided with the jailed fanatic against the government.

    However, the FPI is a different matter.

    .

    ..

    The self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ is not shy about espousing violence against other ethnic or religious groups, as can be seen from that photo.

    And when we read that the ‘declaration’ has the name of FPI’s Sobri Lubis appended thereto…

    .

    .

    …we need to recall his infamous rant. Just watch the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7RLCXNdKF4  –which shows him issuing his monstrous call for his rabble audience to ‘Bunuh, Bunuh, Bunuh (KILL KILL KILL!) innocent Ahmadis.

    ….incitement for which he was never prosecuted, BTW!

    And when we note also that the PA 212 is involved, whose extremely short ‘Long March’ we wrote about a few days ago…

    The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/10/14/thousands-hard-liners-march-against-ahok.htm

    Beware! Very Short Fanatic ‘Long March,’ Jakarta, This Friday! 

    Time for the good people of Jakarta to reach for their safety belts!

    Indonesia’s Islamists Threaten Mob Mayhem! 


    As previously noted, not least by my commenters, that blonde fanatic Bahar Bin Smith, after his release under the Virus Amnesty…

    Virus Amnesty – Indonesian Fanatic Released! 

    Bahar bin Smith.

    …..

    …,had to be promptly rearrested, after a mob of his acolytes showed up for one of his ‘lectures’ and distance rules were flouted.

    Some might think it sensible of the authorities to deposit him not in a local jail but in the high security prison far away at Nusa Kambangan….

    Nusakambangan

    –.

    …which would require serious trekking for wannabe protesters!

    undeterred, the extremists are threatening not just a demo, once next week’s Idul Fitri holiday is over, but absolute mayhem, an invasion of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, here in Jakarta, if the ranter is not turned loose.

    Smith’s attorney, Aziz Yanuar, was quoted as saying-

    It is also possible that we will occupy the ministry for an audience with the Directorate General of Corrections and the Minister, accompanied by a crowd of hundreds or even thousands…”

    .

    Indonesian Islamist fanatics in the past wore masks, not for health reasons but from fear of identification and well-deserved arrest…or maybe they were just shy!

    ……..

    While this suggestion of mob intimidation is concerning, I had to laugh at his ridiculous use of the hackneyed and entirely inaccurate deployment of the term ‘Long March!’

    If the plan was to march from Jakarta to the prison in the Javanese hinterland, that would be a long way to go.

    But no way!

    “We will long march to the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights,” Aziz said.

    Oh, yeah!

    The soft-shoe shuffle routine, again!

    We’ve been here before!

    Beware! Very Short Fanatic ‘Long March,’ Jakarta, This Friday! 

    Not a fan in any sense of Red China’s Mass-Murderer Mao, I am aware nevertheless that his famous ‘Long March’ across that vast country was indeed long.

    Like English, Indonesian is ever-ready to borrow foreign words and phrases, and as you can see, if you read the link, even detik.com has done so.

    Here’s their headline from a previous Jakarta time of troubles.

    Rencana Aksi 313, Salat Jumat di Istiqlal Kemudian Long March ke Istana

    https://news.detik.com/berita/d-3457754/rencana-aksi-313-salat-jumat-di-istiqlal-kemudian-long-march-ke-istana

    ‘Long March?’

    My Ass!

    Like other such manifestations…

    Jakarta Mosque – Yellow-Bellies Bash, Spit On, Journos! 

    …the actual shuffle (‘march’) back then went from the big Istiqlal Mosque down to President Jokowi’s palace.

    ———

    Hasil gambar untuk istana negara istiqlal map


    I could do that in about twenty minutes, max!

    And I used to enjoy a Sunday stroll, from quite near the ministry mentioned above, up to the Monas park area, right by Jokowi’s palace!

    Again I scoff at the notion that it’s a ‘Long March!’

    —–

    But, again as I said before, the shufflers, sorry, marchers, have to proceed slowly, to accommodate ranting.

    It must take your breath away when you repeatedly indulge in sectarian hollering, as heard when the shufflers were out to get Jakarta’s good Governor Ahok.

    Ahok, later imprisoned for ‘blasphemy’  – seriously, in the 21st century!

    The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/10/14/thousands-hard-liners-march-against-ahok.htm

    ==

    Just for good measure, there’s a demand that President Jokowi fire both the Minister of Law and Human Rights, Yasonna Laoly and the Corrections Director, Reinhard Silitonga.

    Never to be outdone, that notorious Alumni 212 gang are gearing up to join in.

    For more about that lot, read this –

    Islamist Fanatics Rage At India – ‘Diskriminasi?’ Oya?’ 

    000000000

    One can only hope President Jokowi will stand firm against any such attempt at mob rule.

     

    But after what happened to Ahok, who knows?

    Sectarian Fanatics Screw Up My Trip Downtown! 


    It was a fine sunny morning, but although there was no risk of rain, which makes Jakarta’s traffic even more awful than usual, I left early.

    .

    .

    My plan was to do a spot of shopping – some plums and mangoes for a visitor tomorrow who likes fruit – then meet up with my young Indonesian crowd.

    We get together for a chat quite often! Their English improves and we exchange views on current events. I’ve been doing this since I quit teaching – it’s fun.

    I got to Harmoni, where I change buses, and jumped aboard a No.2…

    .

    ..

    …which promptly turned left, east, instead of going due south as usual.

    Baffled, I fumed helplessly.

    Then through the window I discerned the problem.

    IIslamist Fanatics!

    They tend to wear white, with green trimmings, many of them being attached to the notorious Islam Defenders Front, the FPI..

    .

    fpi kill busddhist

    =Community OrganisationFPI in action!

    FPI_13

    =

    …though there are several such groups, some of taking great delight in traipsing around town clad in ludicrous Arab gear.

    But why a Monday morning?.

    Of course such people don’t give a hoot about the inconvenience they cause normal folks who go to work and earn an honest living. There were thousands prowling the city centre today, no evident inclination to earn a living or attend school.

    Nice life, being a sectarian!

    Thanks to my hi-tech handphone, I’d worked out what the day’s excuse was.

    212.   Not just the matching date, but the self-styled 212 ‘alumni!’

    I append a link to expand my explanation.

    A group calling itself the 212 Rally Alumni was established to gather people who were involved in the rally on Dec. 2, 2016, to call for the prosecution of then-Jakarta governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama, a Christian of Chinese descent, for blasphemy.

    You might have thought ‘alumni’ a singularly unsuitable word – it tends to be used in Western countries to mean ‘graduates’ but when I think back to the blood-thirsty bigots who shuffled through Jakarta demanding that good governor be not just prosecuted but murdered…

    The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/10/14/thousands-hard-liners-march-against-ahok.htm

    ——

    ahok

    Ahok

    ——

    …for quoting a religious verse.

    After the shuffling rabble got their way and Ahok was imprisoned, a verdict and sentence that made global news  – and made me lose faith in this lovely country’s future…

    Slouching Towards Shariah, Indonesia Jails Ahok

    …I rarely blogged on Indonesian affairs. I still don’t.

    So this morning’s dislocation of my journey was like having salt rubbed into an old wound.

    I got to my get-together, not terribly late.

    Prabowo Faces Jakarta Post Quadrennial Gibbering! 


    And off we go again, an outstanding display of double-standards by the Jakarta Post, which re-hashed its long-winded explanation from four years ago on why it is anti-Prabowo and pro-Jokowi!

    We are encouraged that one candidate [Jokowi] has displayed a factual record of rejecting faith-based politics. At the same time we are horrified that the other [Prabowo] affiliates himself with hard-line Islamic groups who would tear the secular nature of the country apart…    https://www.thejakartapost.com/academia/2019/04/09/we-may-ruin-our-incredible-democratic-achievements-since-1999.html

    The Jakarta Post unequivocally deplores religious thugs who forward an intolerant agenda.  

    Oh yeah?

    How often does it get thus HORRIFIED at involvement with such unspeakable people?

    …..

    6e6cb-hypocrisyofoursociety

    ….

    Has the JP a consistent record of being ‘HORRIFIED’ by people who collaborate with religious thugs who forward an intolerant agenda?

    Regular readers here at RRA will remember the infamous Nazi-style book-burning in Jakarta, sponsored not only by the most backward Islamist fanatics…

    ===

    …but by Indonesia’s largest publishing empire, Gramedia, of which, last I heard, the Jakarta Post is part.

    That was a Hitlerite atrocity against free expression.

    If the Jakarta Post, even so late as this election eve, now condemns its Gramedia overlords, then perhaps they may be forgiven the sin of selective indignation.

    Prabowo Disavows Califascism – Now How About Vigilante Gangs? 


    Interesting to read that the self-styled ‘Defenders of Islam’ in the FPI apparently were on the receiving end last week.

    https://www.thejakartapost.com/amp/news/2019/04/07/jokowi-maruf-supporters-clash-with-rival-group-at-fpi-base-in-yogyakarta.html

    Given the white-shirt gang’s rotten record of violence and incitement…. ..

    ..

    FPI_13

    …it’s hard to summon up any sympathy for the Islamist extremists..

    Ifpi kill busddhist

    .”….

    ….but let’s not overlook one small part of the report in the Jakarta Post.

    ======

    The scene of the clash was the FPI premises in Jogjakarta, which, we read, is the HQ in that vicinity of Prabowo’s presidential campaign team.

    Oh! But is that just a local arrangement?

    Hardly!

    Their ‘grand imam,’ Habib Rizieq, whom we used to feature here a lot, prior to his decision that it was more prudent  to take up residence in Saudi Arabia…

    http://www.globalindonesianvoices.com/31143/before-coming-back-rizieq-shihab-wants-safety-guarantee-from-the-

    ..recently  issued a list of reasons to support  Prabowo….

    …..,

    Hardline Indonesian cleric Rizieq Shihab (pictured right) smiles at the camera

    …..

    …who has in the past seen no shame at having a cheery photo taken with the fanatic.

    Prabowo recently, admirably, disowned any intentions of collaborating with those crazies who want to impose theocratic caliphate tyranny on Indonesia.

    congratulationssuperjob

    Would it not be very welcome, and very reassuring, to everyone who cares about Indonesia’s future as a pleasant, pluralist, peaceful place to live in, if he were also now to disown the apparent support he’s receiving from Rizieq and his white-shirt gang?

    And just to show I am being even-handed ( and I am genuinely neutral in this year’s election) would it not be even more welcome and reassuring if BOTH presidential candidates…

    Rizieq, far-left, shares a platform with President Jokowi

    So Has Indonesia Come To This? Paradise Lost? 

    ======

    ….before Wednesday’s vote, were to make a JOINT declaration, making it clear that they want nothing to do with the FPI and/or its exiled (self-imposed exile, remember) ‘Grand Imam!’

    And pledge never to legitimise Rizieq’s extremism by sharing a platform or allowing him into their presence again.

      That is never going to happen, Ross, and I think you know it.
      If we were back ten years ago and it happened then, maybe the situation today would be more hopeful, but look at the two VP candidates and look what happened to Ahok.
      You are whistling in the dark.

        Hey, Jim.
        You are well out of it.
        Politicians here from almost all parties now treat Rizieq as if he really is a respectable person and not a gang leader.
        It isnt anything new but it has got worse. It seems worse since Ahok was jailed. Even he wont call himself Ahok any more.
        I used to hope I would be here till my dying day. But now, who knows?

      Everyone should stay far away from the FPI.
      They are dangerous to anyone who disagree.
      Rizieq said he want to see Ahok executed eventhough Ahok did no wrong xcept read a verse.

      I will vote for the candidate who will revoke the Decree of the Three Ministers.
      I am not Ahmadiyah but I believe they are Indonesian citizens who have the same rights as we all have to worship God.
      No candidate promises this so why must I vote?

      Ross, you ask for the presidential candidates to have nothing to do with Rizieq.
      They will refuse your request I think.
      Now the vice-presidential candidate of Prabowo is in the news stories because they say he is going to meet Rizieq in Saudi Arabia.
      I hope it is not true.
      If it is true, Indonesia has to think what a sad future we may have..

    Terror Beast Stays Caged – But Why Not Free Some GOOD People? 


    Good to read that President Jokowi has backed off his stated intention to unleash the rabid terrorist convict Abu Bakar Ba’asyir…

    abu-bakar-ba-asyir

    =

    …after public outrage over the old monster’s refusal top fulfil the basic requirement – Government Regulation (PP) No. 99/2012 –  here for such releases…

    garuda pancasila (lambang negara Indonesia)

    …a pledge of loyalty to his country and to its pluralist national ideology.

    We discussed this at length a week or so ago…

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

    …and, while I doubt that anyone powerful here reads my blog, certainly the powers-that-be must have been shaken by the general dismay that the news of the beast’s release provoked.

    Most Indonesians are decent people.

    Most decent Indonesians, like most people everywhere, regard terrorists as satanic scum.

    But if Jokowi is concerned to be seen as a humane leader, doling out compassionate clemency, surely there are others who deserve their freedom much more than Ba’asyir The Beast.

    One obvious deserving case is Meiliana!

      Happy to see you will still keep writing about what goes on here.
      Setting that woman free would send a reassuring signal to the world.
      Somehow I just cant see that signal being sent, sorry to say.

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


    It’s always a little difficult for us foreigners here in Indonesia to comment critically on the release of terrorists. 

    That’s because many Western countries have responded to the terrorist threat on their own territory in such an insipid and ineffectual way.

    In France ( French terror police says 15,000 Islamic radicals on watch list  –Isil priest killer was tagged and on terror watch list ) and Germany (Hinder Dangerous Jihadists? OMG…That’s ”Hardline!”  –Jihadists Known To Police ‘A Common Element?’ Outrageous!  .

    …evil men are free to roam the streets

    Most certainly in the UK…

    …where the spineless government of Theresa May has chosen to open the door to the return of rats on the run, jihadist scum who went off to join the ISIS rape-gang and now come scuttling ‘home,’ not to face a firing squad, as should be the case, but to batten onto the public purse.

    However, the release of a wicked old man, who has never recanted his infamous exhortations to  violence and expressions of sectarian hate….

    —————

    abu-bakar-ba-asyir

    oo

    …has shocked many here, not just us foreigners, but many Indonesians too, although some of us were not overwhelmingly astonished.

    Less than a year ago we recognised the possibility of such a move, when the brute got remission Terrorist convict Abu Bakar Ba’asyir gets 3-month on the country’s national holiday.

    ====

    Independence Day Brings Bigot Ba’asyir Nearer Release! 

    At that time, we reminded readers of his vile ranting incitement against tourists in Bali, that video that exposed his backward bigotry for all the world to see.. 

    In the video, Bashir urges those in the village to beat up tourists that disrespect Islamic ways, saying, “If there are infidels here, then beat them up. Do not tolerate them.” 

    Later in the sermon, he likens non-Muslims to crawling “worms, snakes, maggots.” He also says infidels ruin moral values by exposing their skin at the beach.

    ………..

    sleep-6

    Worm about to turn?

    ————–

    “Take a look at Bali”, he said.

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2008-03-24/bakar-bashir-calls-for-violence-against-infidel/1081632

    At the very least, one might have hoped the terror convict would be required to issue a public retraction and apology for his nauseating words.

    But evidently not- check out reports over the past three years alone.

    ————– 

     Imprisoned terrorist convict Abu Bakar Ba’asyir has officially pledged his allegiance, or bai’at, to join the jihadist movement of a militant group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, according to an official…

    Nusakambangan

    –.

    Ba’asyir, the spiritual leader of the Indonesian terror network Jamaah Islamiyah, made his bai’at to ISIS with 23 other prisoners in a praying room of what was supposed to be the highly secured Pasir Putih penitentiary on Nusakambangan Island off Cilacap, Central Java. 

    Jailed Terrorist Convict Ba’asyir Pledges Oath With ISIS

     Okay, that’s only one report, but it is hardly the only one!

    Terrorist convict Abu Bakar Ba’€™asyir is set to lose his long-held position as the region’€™s spiritual leader of a terrorist network after expelling his sons and top aides from his organization, Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid (JAT), following their refusal to support the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also known as ISIS.

    And check out another post on our blog…

    So Will Bigot Ba’asyir Be Unleashed, Since God’s On His Side? 

    …which touches on the mind-set of the Islamic ‘scholars’ who are rejoicing at the beast’s release.

        MUI – Indonesian Scholars Council

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

    President Jojowi’s decision to uncage Ba’asyir is, we are told, based on ‘compassion’ – a virtue never part of Ba’asyir’s character – but needless to say, questions have been asked about the timing, just a month or three before the election in which Jokowi faces his old foe Prabowo.

    BUT…we have been warned not to ask too many questions!

    MUI’s Saadi  – ” “MUI thanks God for the decision…”

    =

    MUI Vice Chairman Zainut Tauhid Saadi urged the public to not harbor any assumption or make any allegation related to the release of Ba`asyir, as it could erase the legal essence.

    Not exactly sure what that means, but Saadi’s other words are clear enough. The ‘scholars’ of the MUI have welcomed the uncaging of the terror convict as ‘a wise and noble legal step…’

    And Saadi reminds us that MUI Chairman Ma`ruf Amin had once proposed the release of Ba`asyir early last year on health and humanitarian grounds.

    And President Jokowi, please note, has chosen MUI’s Ma’aruf Amin as his Vice-Presidential running-mate in that April election.

      There are many more terrorist prisoners who want to get free and kill more innocent people.

      Wise and noble?
      Since when it was wise to let so very bad a man out of prison when he is not finished his sentence and will not regret his crime. Since when it was noble to let out an Indonesian who does not respect Indonesia but instead respects ISIS.
