    After Surabaya…HUKUM MATI…Execute Terrorists! 


    Horrible news to awake to, on a beautiful sunny morning in Indonesia.

    Six people so far reported dead in Surabaya, victims of satanic evil, innocently worshipping in their churches, slain by Islamist terror bombers.

    =

    =

    It has been many, too many, years, since any jihadist swine have paid with their lives for serving their demonic cause.

    President Jokowi has often, and volubly, voiced his support for the execution of criminals involved in the drug trade.

    • Let him now, please, extend his exhortations to include the vermin involved in sectarian atrocities.

    It is surely time to resume the use of capital punishment in Indonesia’s war on terror.

    =

    ========

    The three Bali Pigs have been burning in Hell since their death by firing squad ten years ago, executions applauded by decent people of all religions and nationalities, except, of course, the European Union, which will go to any lengths to protect the lives of mass-murderers..

    =

     

    SEND  THEM SOME COMPANY!

    ====

    PS

    This call for hukum mati – the death penalty – is not any kind of singling out of Indonesia for special criticism.

    France, under attack again yesterday, and Britain and Germany, have also suffered many losses to Islamist terror, yet their governments still lack the guts to tell the European Court and the European Union to get lost. .

    Brits and French and Germans should also be raising hell to demand their leaders take out satanic savages.

      I expected you to write something like this, Ross. I agree 100%.

      You make a good point about being fair to Indonesia, no point in criticizing Jokowi when Western countries (like France in the past 24 hours) wont fight back when their people are murdered by Islamists.

      Thank you Ross.
      We all want these terorists to be executed and we want our President Jokowi to tell us he thinks same like we do.
      I feel so sad for the poor Surabaya people murdered only for going to church on Sunday morning.

      Yes you say it for me and many million people here in Indonesia.
      It is no good to be kind to terrorists because they are not like humans.
      They are like the dogs with the rabies that must be killed.

      I think you are nuts, Ross.
      Not because of what you write. That usually makes a lot of sense.

      You must be nuts to stay in that country where people get blown up for going to church, and churches are shut down illegally by mobs and the cops dont help the victims re-open their churches and where even Muslims like those Ahmadiyas are murdered by a crowd (filmed on camera) and nobody ever gets charged with murder even though cops were on the spot.
      Yes I read all you write and it is like a script from a horror movie.

      More than a hundred foreigners ( mostly young Australians) were killed in Bali by islamists.
      Others since then have been killed too just for being foreign so.I just cannot understand why any foreigners who dont have to be in Indonesia are still living there.

      Why don’t you get the hell out of there and make your way home?
      PS
      If it’s the weather that keeps you there in Jakarta, you might consider coming to Australia.
      We could do with your support!

        Good day, Keith, and although I don’t usually rush to update my comments column, this post is attracting a lot of comments, so I’m responding promptly.
        Being accused of being nuts is no problem. If you enjoy life, it can happen a lot!
        But this grisly news today makes me determined not to leave but to stay. What is important when terror-scum attack like this is not to give in but to carry on, living as normally as possible.
        Yesterday I attended a wedding where most guests were Muslim, but many were Christian. Everybody was polite, and more than polite, they were friendly and welcoming to the sole foreign guest. Later I spent the evening in Muslim company again, enjoying some of your fine Australian wine.
        A large majority of Indonesians are anything but hostile to foreigners and after roughly 20 years here, I regard Jakarta as home. I hope never to leave.
        I do abhor cold weather so have no intention of residing in a northern climate again. Australia is great and I’m sure I will visit your sunny shores again, but here I am, and here I am happy to stay.

          Good!
          Please do not go from Indonesia because I like to read your blog and my many friend do read it also.
          If a terorist is dead then he will not hurt any one ever again.
          That is one good big reason to shoot them all.

      • Freddy Expat 1:40 pm on May 13, 2018 Permalink | Reply

        Keith, the murder of those Ahmadis was clearly an act of Islamist terrorism but nobody in power called it out as such and as you say, and Ross wrote, nobody was charged with terrorism or even with ordinary murder, despite damning evidence.
        There are other examples not hard to find if you read Ross’s blog but still he tries to defend Indonesia on the grounds that most people here are not terrorists and many people here are friendly to him (and to other foreigners like me)
        I am unconvinced. If terrorists threaten the government, then the government takes it seriously. Also in high-profile cases, like Bali and the Marriott and today in Surabaya.
        But for little churches shut down and minorities disliked by the authorities, like Ahmadis?
        I am only here for another year then my contract will take me home. I have had some good times here but will be going home gladly.

      I am watching the breaking news from Surabaya on Berita Satu and it is more like heartbreaking news.
      What a great pity that no terrorist has been executed since the Bali bombers.

      So many Indonesian people find it strange when the courts and the government can sentence drug dealers to death and the sentences are fulfilled but when the terrible Islamist terrorists are captured they only go to jail and we saw how they do not reform there a week ago.

      Many times they are given release and they attack innocent people again, like you reported when the Sarinah shooting happened in Jakarta.
      Far more wise to shoot them.

      KAMI TIDAK TAKUT.
      That is the social media slogan now, ‘We are not afraid,’ but I like better the idea that
      KAMI MARAH, ‘we are angry.’
      Many people are afraid because it is not so easy to be safe if you go to church or to the mall for shopping or anywhere because the Islamist can dress like normal person eventhough he is the devil who want to kill us.

      Better we get ANGRY and ask our government to kill him.
      A little bit good news today that police kill four terorists in Cianjur.

      From France where more murder has been done by Islamist terror, I send my sympathy to the bereaved in Surabaya.
      It is a shame and a disgrace that the European Union tries to interfere with Indonesia’s capital punishment law.
      They have no right and they do not speak for most Europeans, only for the political class which is putrid.

    Indonesia Shows Oz and UK How To Handle Hizbut! 


    Exceedingly good news from Indonesia’s highest court, which just this week affirmed that the government had acted according to procedure and Hizb ut-Tahrir runs counter to Indonesia’s state ideology.

    The sectarian fanatic gang was outlawed in accordance with a presidential decree that gives the government powers to disband groups deemed a threat to national unity..

    Jakarta court rejects attempt by Hizb ut-Tahrir to reverse its ban 

    It would be hard to dispute the threat, given that HTI has as its goal the subjection of sovereign nations to a global caliphate with no pretence of democracy.

    ‘Charlie Hebdo proves how rotten democracy is!’

    HTI hate democracy!

    Just like the Communist Party, which has been banned for over fifty years.

    PKI Ban – A Good Precedent For HTI? 

    Also, like similar Islamist outfits, HTI believes that the backward shariah code must trump Indonesian laws.

    This latest ruling puts both Australia and Britain in an odd position, because in the past there has been clear recognition in both countries that their local HT califofascists ought to be prohibited.

    We’ve reported on the crassly idiotic aspects of HT leaders in both countries…

    =

    Demented HT bints tell it like it isn’t – evil Hizbut Tahrir ignoramus, Sydney primary school teacher Reem Allouche telling the women’s arm of hardline political group Hizb ut-Tahrir that men are permitted to hit women with sticks.

    …but also on plainly subversive and disloyal declarations by their spokespersons, some of whom were at least honest about their beliefs. Hizbut Tahrir UK – “When ‘Moderates’ Talk of Peace, They’re Lying!” 

    Cameron capitulated on craven ‘human rights’ grounds, and Theresa May thinks shariah is a blessing.

    She is a hopeless case!

    Another T-May Betrayal – Welcome Home, ISIS Terror Pigs! 

    In Canberra, with Turnsteer big buddies with that ignorant extremist ass the Grand Mufti, a defender of HT…

    ==

    Australia, Deport This Sex-Obsessed Sectarian! 

    …the hopes aroused by Tony Abbott (until he buckled) were never realised.

    Petition · Hizb ut-Tahrir: Call to ban group in Australia · Change.orgPrime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is being urged to ban Islamist extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir from Australia…‘Ex-Muslims should be free from death threats’

    But now that the deplorable mufti has gone, thanks be, maybe Turnsteer can be made to notice that HT in Oz continues to behave badly, its imbecilic shrilling an affront to all decent people.

    Hizb ut-Tahrir’s Australian leader recently called on the country to become an Islamic state ruled by Islamic law and for a boycott of Anzac Day.    http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/national/australias-generation-jihad-is-homegrown/story-fnii5s41-1226653324521

    So about time the two governments,in Canberra and in London, shaped up and slapped down the jihad jerks, or better still, kicked them out.

    Having applauded Indonesia, however, let’s not forget that other gangs as bad as, if not worse than Hizbut Tahrir, are still un-banned.

    Nightmare – Indonesian IslamoNazis Get Armed Forces Training! 

    It would be good to see President Jokowi make use of his powers to cut all sectarian gangsters down to size.

    Next Indonesian V-P – Another General ‘Close To’ Fanatics? 


    So Metrotvnews.com tells us that the National Democrat Party has begun to eye TNI Commander General Gatot Nurmantyo as a running-mate for President Jokowi in the next presidential election? The news item adds that Gatot is believed to be able to attract votes from Muslims, especially the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI).

    http://news.metrotvnews.com/politik/nbw36PRb-jokowi-gatot-diyakini-mampu-raup-suara-fpi

    It’s not unusual for high-ranking soldiers in many countries to look at politics as a suitable change of career.

    Think back to Eisenhower and De Gaulle.

    But after the shock many people got when Jokowi decided to share a platform with the FPI’s leader, Habib Rizieq, who openly asserted that Jakarta’s ex-governor Ahok should be put to death for ‘blasphemy…

    ====

    “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/

    ========

    Rizieq, far-left, listens contentedly to Jokowi’s speech

    So Has Indonesia Come To This? Paradise Lost? 

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

    …when instead the President could have confronted that sectarian fanatic, it’s alarming that General Gatot’s alleged ability to win the approval of Rizieq’s thug-gang is seen as a big plus.

    -===

    Hasil gambar untuk gatot nurmantyo jokowi

    =======

    “Close to the Islamic community, close to FPI, etc. It is good to fill the space…”  So says a political analyst with  Indonesia Political Review (IPR) who added that Gatot ”is also  close to the scholars!”

    When that word ‘scholars‘ is used here, it doesn’t just mean people who study a lot, or even a little!

    ====

    ======

    It refers to the MUI, the Indonesian Council of Scholars, a frequent source of outlandish intolerance, whose outbursts we’ve covered aplenty.

     Bali Hindu King – Don’t Kill Our Cows! Muslim ‘Scholars’ – Get Lost!!  

     Islamist ‘Scholars’ – “Don’t Complain if You’re Attacked!”

    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. 
     http://www.suarapembaruan.com/home/mui-dukung-pelaku-kumpul-kebo-dipidanakan/32705

    • …...

    Who knows if this predicted pairing will come to pass?

    But what’s worrying is the alleged closeness of the country’s top officer with violent, lawless bigots.

    One hopes the assertion is unfounded.  General Gatot Nurmantyo has yet to issue any denial, so far as I know.

    Whatever, it is a matter of public interest, not least in the light of that exculpation of the white-shirt gang reported some months ago, from Indonesia’s top cop, General Tito Karnavian, who praised Rizieq!

    “He was very tolerant actually… FPI is an Islamic organization so very tolerant of other religions,” he added. 

    Gambar terkait

    Video Viral, Tito Karnavian: FPI Ormas Islam yang Sangat Toleran

    That assessment of the gang and its leader parked a storm of protest.

    Many good Indonesians, including millions of Muslims, were and are dismayed at the very thought of the FPI or any sectarian cliques having friends in high places.

      Just about to tuck into bacon and eggs so am catching up on your blog. I didnt look in much last week because I was very busy.
      This is a worry.
      I hope the general does make a speech or says something to show everybody he is not close to the FPI. There is a lot of unrest about at the moment.

    Why Not, Pak Wiranto? Avenge Munir – And The Martyrs! 


    Wiranto

    ==

    A baffling response from Indonesia’s Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Wiranto yesterday.

    It seems that reporters ambushed him and asked him about the Munir case, which remains unresolved after 13 years. 

    http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/09/08/wiranto-on-munir-we-should-be-talking-about-development-now.html

    Peculiar word to use, ‘ambush,’ as if a government minister should not be prepared to answer questions when he’s out in public.

    Especially questions related to his specific ministerial responsibilities.

    “You should have talked about our development, or our plundered territory. Why talk only about [Munir]?” Wiranto replied

    Well, maybe, because more than a dozen years have elapsed, and the hireling Polycarpus, convicted of murdering the innocent Munir, has long since been released…

    Munir, Don’t forget him!

    Munir’s Murderer Free – Jakarta Justice Mirrors Western Weakness 

    …despite not telling the world which cowardly creeps hired him to do a job which the said cowardly creeps were not up to doing for themselves.

    It’s all as much a mystery as when we published another post in February.

    No NEED To Tell Munir Murder Story? But CAN They? 

    I hope President Jokowi is on the phone today, reminding Wiranto that Wiranto’s office has been appointed by Jokowi to lead the settlement of cases of human rights abuse in the country..

    Munir’s case is hardly unique.

    More recent, equally heinous, crimes against humanity have been committed in Indonesia, such as the murder of the martyrs in the Cikeusik Pogrom…

    ======

    Cikeusik, Banten Province, February 6th, 2011. Watch the pigs at their bloody work on this link..   http://www.liveleak.com/view.

    No murder charges have yet been brought.

    Victim of Islamist Murder Mob Gets Six Months in the Slammer 

    Wiranto would earn nationwide applause if he were to re-open that case and demand the death penalty for all those who can be detained, prosecuted and convicted of the crime.

    =

    AND if he were to order the release of all the information the government has, wherever it’s locked away, about the hidden hands who directed Munir’s murder.

      Good one Ross.
      I admit I hadnt even thought about the Munir case for a long time but its something Wiranto needs to be talking about.
      Even better if he did something to get justice for those Ahmadis but the government here doesnt show a lot of interest in religious liberty,’
      Its very disappointing after the high hopes when Jokowi was elected.

    • Kezia 9:28 pm on September 9, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Why do we must ask Wiranto? He has the duty to investigate and report to us.
      The government of Indonesia is there to serve Indonesians and not to complain when we ask them questions that are important.
      I see President Jokowi on television all the time and wish I can ask him questions but how can we do that? Always he is with his servants and politicians and they will never question him.

    =

    …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.

    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.

    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.

    Women Fight ‘Scholar’-Blessed FGM In Indonesia! 


    An excellent article in the usually very readable Indonesia Expat magazine this week…

    http://indonesiaexpat.biz/featured/knife-female-genitalia-mutilation-causes-long-term-psychological-effects-indonesian-women/

     

    An interesting magazine, not only because of the beauties often featured

    ….

    …reminding us of the baneful influence of the MUI, the Indonesian Council of ‘Scholars,’ who are subsidised by the state and issue fatwas about all sorts of issues, some of which cause amusement, like that against yoga, but others genuinely alarming.

    We’ve had to report on their intolerant outbursts too many times.

     Bali Hindu King – Don’t Kill Our Cows! Muslim ‘Scholars’ – Get Lost!!  

     Islamist ‘Scholars’ – “Don’t Complain if You’re Attacked!” 

    Much of the misery inflicted on the utterly inoffensive Ahmadi creed arose after the MUI diktat branding them heretics.

    “Mohon Ma’af?” Blasphemous Brutes Vandalise Depok Mosque! 

    The ‘scholars’ express views that often echo the most appalling aspects of backward Islamist ‘thinking.’

    We’ve often covered one example of that…

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

    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. 
     http://www.suarapembaruan.com/home/mui-dukung-pelaku-kumpul-kebo-dipidanakan/32705

    • What’s remarkable, too, is that, despite President Jokowi’s campaign slogans calling for a ‘Mental Revolution’ across the archipelago, his government has not yet heeded women’s demands ban this abhorrent mutilation.

    • As Angela explains –

    • In 2006 the government tried to ban the practice, a move that proved unsuccessful and was lifted.

    • That was during the term of Jokowi’s predecessor, SBY, whose presidency also saw religious discrimination made state policy with the Tri-Ministerial Decree.

    • ===
    • The Ahmadis have long been persecuted in the country, with the government issuing a joint ministerial decree banning their activities in 2008.  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/06/24/ahmadiyah-mosque-in-depok-vandalized-ahead-of-idul-fitri.html

    • That has never yet been revoked.

    • So will the President do the right thing and outlaw FGM?

    • -===
    • I wonder.

      I think this Angela is very good with what she writes, and you too.
      MUI always so much think like Arabs thinking and not like we in Indonesia thinking.
      I wish Jokowi will make reform but I do not expect it.

    • Santi 2:03 pm on August 3, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      I agree that MUI is not what Indonesia need and FGM is cruel and crazy thing to do to girls. So bad and backward.
      You maybe getting crazy too Ross if you think this president will change anything that MUI will not agree.

    President Wins ‘Praise’ For Sitting Down With Fanatics? 


    Did everyone in Indonesia ‘praise’ President Jokowi for meeting the most intolerant Islamists in the archipelago?

    I doubt it, but the sycophantic headline in the Jakarta Post…

    Jokowi praised for meeting with opposition Muslim organization during Idul Fitri

    …might lead readers to think so.

    In fact, what appeared under that headline included only one voice of ‘praise,’ and that was from his very own fan-club, the ‘President’s Volunteer Forum (Bara JP)’  

    ……..

    Gambar terkait

    …..

    Others may take a different view from that expressed by Sihol Manullang. For the JP to describe those Jokowi met as an ‘opposition’ movement is somewhat gilding the lily.

    One can oppose some or all of the President’s polices but the  the ‘Muslim orgainsation’ referred to is none other than that inveterate enemy of free speech, the National Movement to Safeguard the Indonesian Ulema Council’s Fatwa (GNPF-MUI),

    Indeed, the JP correctly reminds us of that gang’s role as the mastermind of a string of mass rallies protesting the leadership of former Jakarta governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama, using his backgrounds as a Christian of Chinese descent as one of its objections.

    Those hate-demos were a blight on the face of Indonesia’s image as a pluralist country once famous for its tolerance and commitment to religious liberty.

    =====

    Barbaric Islamists in Jakarta, burning Ahok in effigy


     

    Ahok, now 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

    ==

    The photo of the meeting in the JP does not include one of the GNPF-MUI’s most infamous notables, Habib Rizieq, the ‘grand imam’ of the white-shirt vigilante gang that calls itself the FPI, the Islam Defenders Front.

    But Rizieq’s absence is no indication that the fanatics who did attend the chummy chat with Jokowi omitted the ‘grand imam’ from their delegation out of choice.

    Fact is, Rizieq is not ANYWHERE in Indonesia at the moment.

    Police Add FPI Leader Rizieq Shihab to Most Wanted List

    But individuals. albeit fascinatiing, are secondary.

    The President’s guests, and the MUI itself, represent the most extreme sectarian elements in this country.

    Many MUI ‘fatwas’ have long been either a matter for jest, like their anti-yoga decree, or examples of quite terrifying hostility to religious liberty, such as that notorious anti-Ahmadiyah diktat. Since that edict was issued, the totally peaceful and  inoffensive Ahmadi minority has gone through hell.

    Even during the recent ‘holy month,’ we had to read about monstrous anti-Ahmadi hate-crimes..

    “Mohon Ma’af?” Blasphemous Brutes Vandalise Depok Mosque! 

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

    We have over the past few years had to report on to all kinds of offensive stuff from MUI leaders.

     Bali Hindu King – Don’t Kill Our Cows! Muslim ‘Scholars’ – Get Lost!!  

     Islamist ‘Scholars’ – “Don’t Complain if You’re Attacked!” 

    =======

    If you wish to know more about the MUI, insert the three letters into my search box, or again, here are a few familiar choice samples of MUI thinking..

    • Why anyone, let alone a pluralist head of state, would give them house-room, is itself very disturbing.

    Happy Pancasila Day – Is ‘Brotherhood’ Worth A Hundred Yard Walk? 


    It’s Pancasila Day, a new public holiday in Indonesia, declared by President Jokowi to promote the pluralist vision of the nation’s founding fathers, who had no time for the Islamist bigotry which is increasingly blighting this lovely country.

    The national ideology is all about unity in diversity, and although I myself have no work to go to, being happily retired from the daily routine, I shall enjoy the relaxation thus mandated.

    Pak Presiden wants everyone to feel as if they are ‘brothers’ and we might assume he agrees with his son, Kaeseng, who’s reported in the Jakarta Post to have published these admirable sentiments.

    “We need to work together to build a better Indonesia, not by slandering each other or claiming others as infidels. Moreover, there was campaign to not provide proper burial rites to Muslims on the basis of voting preferences, how did that come about?”http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/05/29/kaesang-criticizes-viral-video-of-children-chanting-hate-speech-calls-for-tolerance.html

    Wonderful words, but how about deeds?

    How about some Sunday morning, this Ramadhan month, Jokowi emerges from his palace downtown and walks a hundred yards across the road…

    With Jokowi’s Palace in the background, the victims of Islamist evil proclaim their faith

    ………

    Oppressed Christians In The Street Heat, In Pluralist Indonesia 

    X-Rated Xmas – Foul-Mouths Bully Christians, As ‘Moderate’Mayor Denies They Exist!’ 

    …to where his persecuted Christian brothers and sisters are forced to worship by the roadside because intolerant Islamists have sealed their churches in West Java.

    “We are Indonesia, we live in diversity,” says Kaeseng.

    It would be a fine reaffirmation of that principle if his illustrious Dad joined the victims of sectarianism…

    …and ordered his National Police Chief to enforce the Supreme Court ruling that the GKI Yasmin congregants have every right to access their church and use it to practise the religious liberty that Indonesia’s Constitution affords them.

      If he will go to the Yasmin church peoples worship service he will show everyone he care for freedom of religion

    Ascension Day In Jakarta, As Satanic Evil Strikes Kampung Melayu! 


    Awoke to news of sectarian savagery AGAIN today, not far away in an English city this time, but right here in my adopted home-town of Jakarta.

     Islamic State link hits Jakarta

    “This could be part of a global effort to spread fear and terror,” said an Indonesian Police spokesman.

    All my overseas readers can find details in their local media.  http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/jakarta-suicide-bomb-kills-policeman-wounds-at-least-five/news-story

    It wasn’t that long ago that I traveled through Kampung Melayu, the big bus junction hit by the scum some hours ago, so these atrocities can induce personal intimations of mortality.

    I present you with a popular pictorial slogan here…

    =

    …..

    …but while I endorse the exhortation for anyone celebrating Ascension to pray for the dead and wounded today, it is arguably not accurate, because the beasts who claimed more innocent lives yesterday…

      Thankyou, Ross, I do not always read the blog on my holiday but today I think you will speak well and you never dissapoint.
      All my friend Muslim and Christian will be thinking same like you about the satan link.
      It is good if President Jokowi will kill all the terorists.
      Pray for Jakarta

      I am muslima woman and I want to agree the terror in Jakarta was not my religion, It was what you say by Devils who kill muslim people.
      I beleive Devils now in Hell.
      Many people call them that and are so angry when they lie and say they are muslim. It was same in Sarinah and in Cikeusik that you write also about. All muslim I know want the Devils to get death punishment.
      If we want to be free country we need to hunt them all over our country Indonesia and yes it is true also that the Densus88 do good work.
      Thanks to you.

      We all know Muslims here in Indonesia who would never have anything to do with Islamists, and its not just our friends and oolleagues, its all the million plus plus who voted for Ahok, Not enough minority religions to have turned out so many votes against the Islamists.
      Now all those people see Ahok in prison and asking themselves if theyre next for saying anything that upsets the jihadists.
      I see the National Police Chief Tito still hasnt apologised for calling the FPI tolerant. That is worrying..If the top cop wont or cant see the truth when its there in front of his nose, who is going to enforce the law.
      Pessimist outlook, rainy season coming?
