    “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.

    ………..

    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 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.

    Drooling Pigs – ‘Moral Vigilantes’ Arrested In Tangerang! 


    While it’s still International Day to Stop Violence Against Women, I have to mention four sleazy scumbags.

    Four people suspected of making a couple strip naked and forcing them to march on the streets have been arrested in the Tangerang Regency of Indonesia.

    This kind of thing is nothing new. I remember being shocked when I read a similar report back in 1999, when I was still new to Indonesia.

    Gambar terkait

    In those days, technology was not as advanced as 2017, so only photographs were taken.

    Now what is ludicrously described as an act of ‘moral vigilantism’ which took place on Saturday (11 November) was filmed and the video went viral.

    =

    Gambar terkait

    ======

    The unwed couple were accused by locals of performing an unspecified “immoral act” inside a home in a village.

    According to Tangerang Regency police chief Sabilul Alif, the couple were pushed into the street by the vigilantes who rebuked them for being “indecent.”

    ‘moral vigilantism?’

     

    But the tail-end of the report is more than disturbing, the reminder that in January, two consenting adulterers in Tangerang were forced to march in public, but those responsible were not charged with any crime.

    =

    And a similar desecration of justice occurred elsewhere, in August – again, no charges brought against the scabrous brutes who had  a couple paraded through the streets in rural Indonesia..    http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/indonesian-couple-stripped-naked-beaten-paraded-1647186

    Yet the man thus bullied was charged with adultery!

    =

    =

    OK, we can say that such displays of a moronic mind-set are confined to uneducated ignoramuses.

    But where do they get this sicko mentality from.

    It’s obviously to do with having a dirty mind and a zeal for humiliating women and for making the most of an opportunity to be voyeurs, grubby adolescent panting at a chance to see a woman’s private parts.

    But who passed the laws that allow people to be ‘charged with adultery.’

    Who arrogates to themselves the right to decree what constitutes the proper penalty for adultery?

    I suppose we should just be glad it’s not those benighted ‘scholars’ who are forever yapping about their prescribed remedies for everything that goes wrong, or even just goes on, rightly or wrongly.

    The fanatic Islamists of the state-funded Indonesian Council of ‘Scholars’  -the MUI would make life even more unpleasant if they had their way.

    Get a load of this geezer!

      If these morons are taught shariah law from childhood then it’s only natural that they have no respect for women, who under shariah law, are second class human being, forced into head-coverings while the men aren’t, and allowed to marry only one husband while the men can enjoy up to four wives. There’s the unjust inheritance laws too. All bad.

      Second class people get second class treatment, and from what I have read, those scholars ( are genuinely educated in anything worth studying?) are very influential.
      It was their extremist agitation that forced the government to issue the discriminatory laws against the Ahmadiyya Muslims, wasn’t it?

    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.

    ==

    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.

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


    Mohon ma’af, ‘ is a common addition to Idul Fitri greetings here, people asking forgiveness for any wrongs they’ve done in the past year.

    I wonder if certain blasphemous bigots in Depok will walk over to the Ahmadi Mosque they vandalised this weekend….

    The vandals, who used motorcycles, threw eggs and paint at the mosque’s yard and front and back gates. “They also threw eggs at the mosque’s CCTV cameras so their actions would not be recorded,” Fatiatulo Lazira, a lawyer with the team, said. They also placed a banner expressing animosity toward Ahmadiyah near the mosque.

    ….and seek forgiveness.

    I doubt it. Islamist bigots have no conscience recognisable to normal human beings.

    I recall that evil mass-murderer, Imam Samoedra, one of the Bali Bomb Pigs..

    …being asked by a naive journo prior to his well-deserved execution, if he would be asking forgiveness.

    ‘Why would I ask forgiveness from kafir,’ was the monster’s retort.

    So no repentance likely among the backward beasts in Depok either, where the vandalised Ahmadi mosque had already been shut down by the sectarian local government’s goon-squad.

    ===

    The mosque has been sealed off by the Depok administration seven times, with the most recent occurring on June 4.

    Nor is there any news from President Jokowi, who likes to talk about Indonesia’s pluralism, about any plan to repeal the notorious 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

    The  2005 Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) fatwa declaring the teachings of Ahmadiyah heretical

    which bigot bureaucrats  have used to shut down religious liberty in dismal Depok – more than once!

    I do suspect, however, that ‘heretical’  – and utterly inoffensive and peaceful  – Ahmadis today are saying ‘mohon ma’af’ for any little mistakes they have made, over the past 12 months, in good conscience, knowing that they have done nothing wrong in wishing to worship God Almighty in their own honourable way.

      The MUI must ‘seek forgiveness,’ just like you say.
      Depok kampung criminals who attack the mosque are stupid with no education but MUI are older and not stupid only mean and full with intolerance. So many mean things happen after the MUI fatwa.
      Why will President Jokowi not protect Ahmadiyya people.
      The Ahmadi do no harm.

      And I agree with you Kezia, the MUI always make me feel like why do they shame our country.
      We since 1945 like to have freedom for all religion.groups.
      MUI do not.

    If You’re Out On The Town In Jakarta Tonight, Beware! 


    Just saw the news on Trans TV, the white-shirt FPI thug-gang went ahead and staged a ‘takbir’ tonight, starting about now, despite an appeal from Jakarta City Police not to hold takbir around Jakarta.

    The FPI  – the Defenders of Islam Front – are notorious cowardly bullies. Just put the letters into our search box over there to the right.

    FPI – sectarian hate-gang on the march in Jakarta

    =

    Takbir is a kind of parade/motorcade marking the end of the fasting month. They obviously cause traffic congestion and general inconvenience and have in previous years degenerated into brawling.

    Peace? Ramadan Convoys “Often Taunt and Fight Each Other!” 

    ===

     “We will still carry out our takbir tour in various areas including Jakarta, because the takbir tour is local wisdom and part of syiar Islam…”

    So said Slamet Maarif, Jakarta FPI Gauleiter, resplendent in his local wisdom.

    In other words, shariah trumps all.

    Indonesia ‘Scholars’ Council

    ==

    Much the same arrogance we heard from the MUI, the state-sponsored Islamic self-styled ‘scholars,’ a few years ago.

    An official with the Indonesian Council of Ulema (MUI) has criticized the Jakarta Police’s call to curb the amount of Idul Fitri prayer convoys in the capital, alleging it as an attempt to “defy” and “belittle” Islam.

    ————–

    • tengku zulkarnain-mui- Tengku
    • ———-
    • MUI deputy secretary-general Tengku Zulkarnain…criticized the police’s suggestion to limit takbir-chanting — often called takbiran in Indonesian — within the confinement of mosques.
    • ==

    Which of course was hogwash when he said it, as it is today.

    The great majority of police here are Muslim, as one would expect in a 90% Muslim country, and some at senior levels have even shown themselves well-disposed to the fanatic FPI!

    =

    Indonesia’s Top Cop Calls IslamoNazi Gang ‘Very Tolerant!’ 

    Of course the police are not out to ‘belittle Islam.’

    They presumably want to keep the streets safe and orderly.

    But Tengku has in the not-so-distant past shown signs of a persecution complex. ‘…the Koran has already instructed Muslims about the deceitfulness of the enemies of Islam.’ 

    Top ‘Scholar’ – “Amazing Muslim Advance in West Scares Islam’s Enemies!” 

    Last word to Slamet.

    =

     

    “If there are limited personnel for security purposes, they can work with Islamic organizations in Jakarta, instead of reversing silly policies that are not popular,” said Slamet.   http://www.cnnindonesia.com/nasional/20170624154819-20-223954/fpi-gelar-takbir-keliling-meski-dilarang-polisi/

    In other words, hand over policing of Islamist parades to people like Slamet’s own Islamist louts.

    Won’t that be a wonderful day?

    Pray to whichever God you worship that it may never dawn in Indonesia.

      I used to like going out to watch the fun but the fun isnt there any more. Its faded.away.
      After those horrible children were filmed chanting for Ahok to be burned I said it was not the Indonesia I knew. What are the Jakarta Police doing right now?
      Watching over the FPI tabrik?

    And of course this also provides me with another good reason to remind readers of the fatwa of the self-styled ‘scholars’ of the MUI in 2009, which won worldwide attention.

    However, I won’t go over that again.

    Shadow Of Islamist Intolerance Darkens Depok Once Again 


    It’s not as if we haven’t looked into the ugly face of Islamist intolerance in Depok scores of times, sometimes with a grimace at the antics of those involved Islamist Bigot Biter Bit in West Java 

    But at other times one has to feel nothing but contempt for the mean-spirited oppression of the inoffensive and utterly blameless Ahmadiyah religious minority.

    Sadly, the latest news falls into the latter category, nothing to smile about as sectarian bigotry blights the city yet again.

    The Mayor of Depok thinks it’s acceptable to hammer religious liberty in his dismal city, apparently to meet the demands of “certain groups that pressured him into forbidding Ahmadiyah followers from carrying out their worship activities in Depok.”

    =

    =

    Mayor Mohamed Idris sent in his goon-squad, the SatPol PP – civic militia – and now the Ahmadis’ Al-Hidayah Mosque has been sealed.

    One government flunkey tries to justify suppression of religious liberty by invoking the locals’ numbskull bigotry.

    fDepok National and Political Unity Agency head Dadang Wihana argued that the closure was aimed at maintaining a peaceful situation and to protect the Ahmadis themselves, saying that the locals had felt disturbed by their presence and they might incite conflicts.  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/06/08/ahmadis-plan-lawsuit-against-depok-administration.html

     One might think it’s numbskulls, like those who can’t observe other people’s ways of worship without getting ‘disturbed, that deserve the attentions of the SatPol PP.

    ======

    The militia is equipped with sturdy batons which might knock some sense into those numb skulls!

    It’s fairly nauseating to be back on the subject of religious liberty in Depok, West Java, yet again.

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

    It’s especially offensive because Ramadhan is meant to be a holy month of reflection and introspection, not persecution, but the authorities in Depok clearly care little for soul-searching and much more for witch-hunting.  

    Ahmadiyah spokesman Yendra Budiana said that the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) and the National Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan) had urged the mayor to not restrict religious freedom…  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/06/04/authorities-allegedly-seal-ahmadiyah-mosque-in-depok.html

    But decent people versus ‘certain groups?’

    Not much of a contest in Dark Age Depok.

    The Ahmadis are now talking lawsuit, but if the powerful Governor of Jakarta can be sent to prison for quoting an Islamic verse, what chance do a small congregation of humble folk persecuted in Depok have?

    Important question – who are these ‘certain groups?’

    Neither the Ahmadi leader nor the Jakarta Post seem up to telling us. Ahmadis, of course, have faced murderous persecution…

    —–

    —-

    … notably at Cikeusik six years ago, when three of them were martyred by a mob of Islamist savages. They have reasons to be wary.

    But it’s surely the Jakarta Post’s job to report properly and seek out the ‘certain groups?

    =

    Sectarian gangsters need to be exposed, not covered for, although there’s a pretty good bet that it’s IslamoNazis at work again.

    Which particular gang? I don’t know, and I haven’t got the resources the newspapers have to find out.

    If I had, I’d try.

    Has the JP tried?

    Doubt it.

    Jakarta Post’s True Colours – ‘Hands off Islamists!’ 


    Most of us understand the clear difference between Muslims and Islamists.

    One of the former had a modest meal in my home last night. Another will likely drop by for a pleasant visit over the weekend. The folks I met up with in town yesterday were Muslims.

    They are fasting, most of them, this Ramadhan. They don’t eat pork. Most of them don’t share my enthusiasm for beer.

    =

    =

    They are normal people who follow their religious customs and respect the fact that a lot of people have either different religious practices or no religious affiliation at all.

    Islamists are something else entirely.

    They are bigoted fanatics who are essentially intolerant and believe that their ways should dictate our ways. They hold power in Indonesia’s Aceh Province, where women of ANY creed are coerced into head-shrouding under the oppressive shariah code.

    Islamist rule in Aceh is an endless nightmare…

    …whose ‘high priest’ – currently keenly sought by the police – told us that Governor Ahok deserved death for the ridiculous ‘offence’ of ‘blasphemy,’ which in Ahok’s case merely comprised quoting a Koranic verse and questioning its meaning.

    Victim of Islamist Murder Mob Gets Six Months in the Slammer

    …but for  – WAIT FOR IT – sleeping around.

    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.

    • …..

    That’s who Islamists are, and what they do.

    BUT…says the anonymous editorial  in the Jakarta Post…

    …celebrations beyond this “Pancasila Week” must avoid worsening the mistake of suppressing Islamists.

    http://www.thejakartapost.com/academia/2017/05/31/editorial-a-pancasila-holiday.html

     Okay, we know that the Jakarta Post’s parent company, Gramedia, has a shameful record of collaboration with the Islamists, to the extent of overseeing a Hitlerian book-burning bonanza in support of the MUI’s vendetta against freedom of thought and expression.


    Jakarta Post – A Nelson’s Eye View Of ‘Pluralism!’ 

    But so far, while editorial cowardice has prevented any condemnation of that Nazi-style arson, they have never openly endorsed it either.

    Does this latest outbreak of Islamist empathy now signal that the JP is going belatedly to its support for Gramedia’s grisly intolerance?

    A question all the more important as we celebrate this, Pancasila Day!

      Good one again Ross and I hope that newspaper will make it clear too.
      Did you read that terrible woman Julia Suryathing writing in the Jakarta Post about she thinks it was real progress to allow men to have four wives but nothing at all about how women dont get to have four husbands or three or two, only allowed one and that is her idea of progressive..

      She also totally dodged saying if child marriage is right or wrong, She just mentioned it the once and made no judgment.call. I think the old girl must be scared she will upset the fanatics.
      What a coward but thats the Jakarta Post for you.

        Thanks for that, JazPen.
        I did see her woefully inadequate ‘thoughts’ on child marriage and polygamy, but decided she wasn’t worth a comment.
        However, you sum her up quite successfully.
        Thanks.
