    The Magnificent Six Committed A MASSACRE? Bravo! 

    Occasional tardiness in covering news this week and next, since I am far from my Jakarta home and relaxing with people important to me.

    But we do our best to keep track of interesting events.


    A most pleasing choice of words in this EUOBserver report!



    Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, and Romania declined to support a UN resolution on Thursday attacking the recent US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

    The resolution still passed with a huge majority…

    …but the six abstentions massacred the EU’s common position…   https://euobserver.com/tickers/140396

    All hail the Magnificent Six who defied the Juncker Junta.

    Just a shame that Theresa May’s Government didn’t have the guts to join those brave European governments!

    Brits! Tell Boris – No More Cash For Palestinian Terror! 

    But as she has apparently failed to order her Foreign Secretary to sort out that issue we wrote about months ago…

    …well, she wouldn’t buck Brussels on the Jerusalem vote either, would she?

      Six out of 28?
      Poor show,Europe, and embarrassing that May followed Juncker’s line like a puppet.

      Oh and I hope you, Ross, are having a wonderful Christmas.
      You deserve it.

    My Fake News – Amnesty, With Islamic Group, Condemns Red China! 

    Fake news story –


    Amnesty International and Nahdlatul Ulama, Indonesia’s largest Muslim organization, have called for the end of human rights violations in Tibet in light of the Communist Chinese government’s 60+-year occupation of the territory.



    That of course is satire. No way the Jakarta Globe would publish that!


    HERE is the…

    REAL news story –

     Amnesty International and Nahdlatul Ulama, Indonesia’s largest Muslim organization, have called for the end of human rights violations in Palestine in light of the Israeli government’s 50-year occupation of the territory,


    So how come?

    How come Amnesty isn’t loudly launching a campaign against importing stuff from the brutally colonised country invaded, occupied and terrorised by the Beijing marxist dictatorship?

    More interesting would be to put the same question to the NU, who are actually one of the most ‘moderate’ outfits here.



    Are they concerned with Palestine merely because of the irrelevant fact that most Palestinians are Muslim?

    If so, up to them.

    Rights allegedly taken from their co-religionists are more important than rights ripped from other peoples?

    Okay, up to them.

    But what about the Jakarta Globe?

    Not a word from any Israeli source to balance the numerous whines included in their report?

    And the JG even includes a direct link to an anti-Israel petition. And a big Palestinian flag at the top of their report?

    That’s what caught my eye, because it reminded me of the bigoted bias of TVOne here, which I covered more than once…


    .Hamas Pigs Gloat Over Baby’s Death! Will TVOne in Jakarta Highlight Their Sin? 

    …that ghastly pictorial background, and the miserable pro-Palestinian dirge droning away, when we naively expected them to do their duty and cover the conflict with professional objectivity.

    No petition links from me, except THESE –

    Take action | Free Tibet

    We campaign for an end to China’s occupation of Tibet and for international recognition of Tibetans’ right to freedom…

    Long Live Free Tibet!

    BTW, I’m not NU-bashing. I am equally critical of the Trump Administration on this issue.

    …the Trump administration recently took a step away from precedent by proposing zero aid to the Tibetans in 2018. http://thediplomat.com/2017/06/did-the-us-just-abandon-tibet/

    What bugs me is the totally one-sided coverage in the Jakarta Globe!

      You should know by now, Ross, the media here is not worth reading for the most part.
      The TV is worse.
      I would make Tempo an exception to the above. They are a cut above the rest, but who are we from the West to complain, when we have CNN and ABC to be embarrassed by!
      You sure cover a multitude of news.in a lot of countries, but I liked that dangdut story earlier more than all the political stories. .

    Sarinah’s West Door Security? Where? And Why ‘Palestine’ Droning? 

    I took a trip into town today, and the traffic was amazingly light, so with time in hand, I got off the Busway at the famous Sarinah department store building.



    With somebody around tomorrow morning who can whip up a fine Brit breakfast, a pack of bacon from the basement supermarket was required!

    Pork purchased, I drifted upstairs, and, on inspecting the first-floor westside terrace, was agreeably surprised to see that, unlike last year…


    Big Mackistan? Ramadhan Lock-Out at McD Sarinah


    …the chairs and tables outside McDonalds were not stacked up in unhelpful heaps but left in order, so people can actually sit down, which I did.

    Those silly blinds were up to make sure no Ramadhan fasters were goaded into uncontrollable frenzies of temptation, but no matter.

    I read my paperback in peace till it was time to go and see those who were awaiting me.

    But cutting back downstairs, I noted a change in their canned music repertoire from when I’d arrived. Earlier, it had been seasonal fasting-month stuff, just as at Christmas one would expect to hear carols.

    But that had been replaced by that God-Awful dirge about how ‘Palestine will be free again.

    If the Sarinah management can choose to play that propaganda cr-p, I can choose to shop for my bacon some other place in future.

    And if they have time to supervise their music to make it ideologically offensive, why don’t they make time to make sure their west-side entrance, that nearest to Jalan Thamrin and the busy Busway stop…

    …has SOMEBODY making security checks.

    I entered and exited  with a large shopping bag which contained nothing dangerous at all. It wasn’t that security personnel were slack – there were no to be seen!

    But I’m a good guy. The terrorists at that junction last year were NOT!

      I also worry for shopping in Sarinah, so nevergo there now because there is no security on same door to Thamrin that Ross is writing about. And if we go out back door into alley, on east side, nobody check my bag.
      I know on parking side there is one guard to check us but that is not very enough.
