    De-Labelling Christian Kindness? Name The Gang! 

    Although I generally delight in my country of residence….


    …sometimes aspects of life in Indonesia do sadden me…



    …like the behaviour of some ‘earthquake refugees’ in Cianjur, West Java, who were happy to accept aid from their Christian fellow-citizens –

    … the ‘Action Team for the Indonesian Evangelical Reformed Church…’

      – but apparently not so happy….

    ….that the badly needed tents supplied by the Christians happened to include a label identifying the source.



    The de-labelling was not spontaneous but a deliberate, planned action by a gang which neither the police nor local authorities seem willing to name.

    (a police spokesman went so far as to say the gang’s action was not an act of intolerance!

    ‘...it needs to be emphasized that this is not an intolerance act. The people are still using the tents, they are not being rejected. Only the stickers or labels have been removed…”  https://www.tauberita.com/amp/polisi-soal-label-gereja-di-tenda-bantuan-cianjur-bukan-aksi-intoleran

    How gracious!

    The cop refers to the perpetrators as an ‘ormas,‘ which is short for a ”community organisation’ – but here in Indonesia all kinds of loutish outfits can be included in such terminology.

    The now-banned Islamist vigilante movement, the FPI…


    …was often referred to as an ‘ormas.’

    (Use our Search engine for ‘ormas’ and see what I mean…Will Jokowi Stand Firm Against Violent Fanatics? …but try that for starters!.)

    Reluctance to name and shame perps has been noticed in the past…Rabid Bigots Mob ‘Un-Islamic’ Wedding – Media Can’t ID Scum?..and is perhaps telling.

    But that the ‘ormas‘ was a sectarian group is indicated by this extract from one report.

    You can also see a person wearing a white skullcap and koko shirt filming one of the people removing the banner.’


    That kind of costume is not invariably worn by a certain brand of fanatic –  but it is how a certain type of fanatic does like to dress in public .

    Just very sad, that ‘it was seen that other residents took down banners in other refugee tents.’

      Not as hard-hitting as you used to be but maybe all the better for that.
      it’s great to read you giving those ormas fanatics the spanking they deserve.
      Stick it to them,. Ross.

    Rabid Bigots Mob ‘Un-Islamic’ Wedding – Media Can’t ID Scum? 

    This past weekend, I think it was, a young couple were getting married in Solo, Central Java.

    But a pack of pig-ignorant sectarian hoodlums decided the ‘traditional procession had violated certain Islamic principles.’

    So because, in the minds of some intolerant swine, the procession was not consonant with ‘shariah’ rules, a vicious mob attack was launched.

    The police escorted the wedding guests to safety during a lull when members of the group were performing maghrib (sunset prayer). However, the group finally noticed the evacuation and responded by physically attacking the guests…


    The terror gang took a break for prayers, then resumed their violent onslaught?

    To whom were they praying?


    At least three people were injured during the conflict…victims have since been treated at Indriati Solo Baru Hospital in Sukoharjo regency.


    SO many questions!

    Why did the police, who are armed in Indonesia, not use their guns to put these terrorists down!


    Why is neither the Jakarta Post, nor detik.com….


    …from whom there’s a video link..

    …WHY is nobody prepared to name the scumbag gang  – except to describe it as an ‘ormas’ ( ‘community organisation!’ ) –  whose vile antics shame this beautiful country?

    PS  In retrospect, I should admit that any comments I make about the police here need to be put in perspective, for the police in Britain are open to comparable comments.

    The so-called ‘top cops’ in a variety of UK constabularies, notably in Bristol (where the police stood by in a cowardly and irresponsible manner as leftist hooligans engaged in criminal damage) and in Kent, where a clown of a Chief Constable knelt in obeisance to the racist BLM, are unfit for purpose.

    They should be replaced with officers who understand that their duty is to be impartial and enforce the law fairly…and squarely!
