    Sunday Treat – An Australian Phone Chat! 

    I’m not sure that i always agree with everything Mr. Avi Yemini of Rebel News has to say, but he is courageous and honest so I have often mentioned him on my blog.

    Today, I offer you an interesting telcon he had with a far-left councillor.



    WATCH and SHARE to see the motion Jolly put out and hear what he had to say during our conversation: 

    EXCLUSIVE: Councillor Stephen Jolly gets OWNED by Avi Yemini on
the facts

    It’s clear that Councillor Jolly uses his position to push his personal bias about the conflict even though he’s got no idea…..

    Comrade Corbyn’s Selective Anti-Imperialism 

    ‘Jeremy Corbyn has been throughout his career an opponent of imperialism and a strong critic of Israel and that’s his position,”



    Or so says some hack named Neil Clark, quoted in RT, who is no doubt surely sincere in believing that, despite any record I can find of Comrade Corbyn condemning Red China’s genocidal imperialism in Tibet.

    Red Jeremy is also infamous for his frolicking with Sinn Fein/IRA’s Blood-Beast Adams…



    …who embodies the imperialist aspirations of Britain’s eternal enemy, Eire.

    So no interest in the right to self-determination of Tibetans, or of Ulster’s Brits.



    And is there not a fundamental contradiction in Corbyn’s enmity towards Israel, and his refusal, quoted in the same RT article  –

    https://www.rt.com/uk/439028-corbyn-arsenal-boycott-israel/ – about his call to boycott his ‘own’ team Arsenal because they made a deal with the Jewish state’s tourist board!-

    – to grant parity of esteem to Israelis and Palestinians.



    The whole dispute in that troubled land is due to the sectarian, and very violent, imperialism of the Islamic aggressors who invaded, conquered and held in their grip for centuries not only the Holy Land but also almost all the Byzantine provinces, despite brave efforts by the Crusaders to liberate the conquered areas.

      At least with Corbyn we kmow he’s been an enemy of our country for all his adult life.
      I was fooled by May for a while but now we know her too, for what she is,
      Who will take us through all this mess we’re in. I am perplexed.

      Professor Shlomo Sands in his books “The invention of the Jewish people”, a best seller in Israel at the time, stated categorically that DNA proves that the Palestinian are the descendent of the Israelites of old. In 1928, the total Jewish population of Palestine was some 83 000. All the others were imported and are converts to Judaism (in fact some 75% are atheists). The Yemenites converted in the 4th Cent. The Sephardi (Berbers from North Africa) converted in the 8th Cent. The Ashkenazi, a Turko Mongol-Finn mixture from the North of the Caucasus, converted in the 9th Cent CE. Their right to the land is the right of conquest, not descent. Who is financing you? Tel Aviv’s Propaganda Dept.?

    Tell the Palestinians – Stop Celebrating Murder! 

     I have a lot of American readers and I imagine they will, many of them, already have seen this petition and signed it.
    Nevertheless, living in Indonesia, where so much of the media is rotten with bias on the Middle East issues  -most obnoxiously TVOne, which has been in the habit, when violence flares, of putting on that ghastly droning dirge ‘Gaza Tonight,’ with propaganda backgrounds like this….


    • oooooooooooo
    • …not based on any logical or even political argument but purely as a pathetic manifestation of sectarian solidarity, I feel the least one should do in the circumstances is give the petition an extra boost!
    • So here’s the link and the illustration which we received in the middle of last week.

    AirAsia’s Malaysian Joins Europhile “In”-Crowd – Go Fly Yourself, Tony! 


    Last month we expressed our scorn for the plutocratic elite aligning themselves with Cameron’s craven sell-out to Brussels, what Better Off Out rather neatly describes as the inelegant sight of a self-serving elite closing ranks.  http://www.betteroffout.net/pro-eu-businesses-letter-the-times/

    They add the interesting information that the big business endorsement was circulated by a civil servant at Number 10, which tells you plenty about the politicisation of the once-upon-a-time admirably impartial UK Civil Service.


    Sonny Leong CBE

    Leong, director of “Left Foot Forward, a political blog for progressives!”


    One name on the list is that of Sonny Leong, Chief executive, Civil Service College.

    And what do they do? – – Using the latest skills and methods we aim to help shape the public sector in the UK and abroad, and beyond.   http://www.civilservicecollege.org.uk/about-us.aspx

    Very reassuring!

    But for those Brits resident here in Jakarta, and there are a lot, it’s something of a surprise to note that AirAsia is one of the companies named.

    Their big boss, Tony Fernandes, is a Malaysian.


    Tony Fernandes.jpg


    In March 2012, Tony Fernandes served on the International Advisory Board of Global March to Jerusalem, which aims to “mobilize the international community in solidarity with Palestinians and to protect Jerusalem   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Fernandes


    I am currently considering two major trips this year. I used AirAsia only recently, for a couple of trips, home and away, but after doing that little bit of research, I’m damn sure I won’t be using them again.

    Better to pay a bit extra than contribute to the profits of an airline whose multi-millionaire magnate foreign owner wants to keep Britannia subject to those Brussels Commissars and who takes a one-sided ‘solidarity’ stance in the Middle East .

    Hey, UK! Ingrate ‘Refugee’ Savages Just Burned Your Money! 

    Several tents at the RAF base in Dhekelia, near Larnaka were set alight amid disturbances 

    ‘Refugee’ arson at an RAF base in Cyprus –


    Bad enough that the British Government did not give the order to open fire on the riotous ‘refugees.’

    Worse that the RAF were not authorised to turn these swine back when they appeared off that Cyprus base in the first place. 

    Now the ingrate scum having run amok, arson and mayhem, they add insult to injury by complaining that a key UK military installation, not far from the Mid-East war-zone, has a secure fence with locked gates!


    Listen to this uppity Arab, his arrogant snout dug deep in the British public purse. The dirty dog’s name is Ibrahim Marouf .

    : ‘The gate of the camp is always closed, there are fences all around the camp…”




    Well, dreadfully sorry, old chap! We’ll just leave the gates wide-open!

    Maybe put up a big sign outside, something like – ‘Welcome, ISIS!”

    A better idea would be to fly him back to Palestine, where he comes from.




    Millions of pounds sterling ( and US dollars) are lavished, via the UN, on that PLO-run cess-pool, so let them take care of their own. 



    • Selmer 03:50 on November 8, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      I couldn’t agree more.
      These people’s lack of any sense of gratitude to the RAF makes me sick. They should have been VERY firmly put in their place by whoever was on duty at the time, though I think we’d find that ‘higher authority’ had issued kid glove orders.
      I see there are already a number of similar ‘refugees’ who have been living off the British tax-payer at the same base for years.
      All of them should be sent packing. And if any others are seen off the island, yes, turn them back, just as Australia so wisely has been doing. .

    Spain – Government Funds ‘Juden Raus’ Fiesta! 

    Another petition? 

    And why not? Petitions are a simple means of protest which anyone, anywhere can utilise, no matter where they are and how much or how little money – or energy – they may have.

    • If you can’t get out to join a demo, you can add your name to a protest, and this seems an episode that merits protest, a shocking resurgence of nazi-style anti-Jewish persecution, in Spain, of all places.
    • Something called the Rototom Sunsplash, an annual reggae music festival, Rototom Sunsplash in Benicassim, Valencia – not my scene, I admit – has kicked out a Jewish hip-hop singer – not my kind of music, I admit – …
    • ….but not for any musical dissonance!
    • ———————

    hitnur    ‘Juden Raus,’ he roared…

    ‘Si, Senor Fuhrer..’ Sunsplash2006_adesivo

    He’s a Jew!

    And he, alone of all the artists on the menu, was ‘urged’ to sign up to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement, an anti-Israeli outfit.

    The organisers urged Matisyahu to sign a statement or otherwise endorse a Palestinian state.



     A photo taken in Red-run Venezuela, but it’s apt for Valencia too, so it seems…


    A representative for the festival, who would only give his first name, George…



    …told Newsweek. “The festival said Matisyahu should sign [an endorsement] and Matisyahu didn’t want to, and that’s the matter of the cancellation.”  http://www.newsweek.com/matisyahu-concert-canceled-palestine-363350

    Okay, if a bunch of pro-Palestine creepoids want to run a festival, they can invite, or dis-invite, whomsoever they like, or dislike. It’s then up to Spaniards if they wish to attend any reggae-fied version of a Nuremberg Rally!

    But no way, surely, should any grubby little anti-Semites be sticking their snouts into the public purse.

    This show gets funding from the Spanish Government!


    • taxpayersspaineussr And who else, might we ask? Spain gets loads of EUSSR cash…
    • ———————–

    It should be hung out to dry and told to take its begging-bowl round any neo-nazi and/or pro-terrorist cliques with money to burn, if it can’t sell enough tickets to break even.

    Incidentally, have the artists been ‘urged’ to support or condemn any other causes?

    Seemingly not! Although Rotototum’s own news section has this alluring indication of whose drum they march to.

    • I see no matching guest-input from any of Castro’s Cuban dungeons, or any Yazidi rape victims…ho-hum…


    An affronted Jewish group in Spain has observed –

    “It is noteworthy that the festival is not interested in the opinions of other participants on policies of Iran, the Islamic State, Syria, Hamas and Hezbollah…”.

    SO? What’s to be done?

    Pile on the pressure!

    Shame Madrid into de-funding the dirty bigots!

    Top Islamic ‘Scholar’ To Kids – Admire Invaders Who Occupied Palestine! 

    We can’t seem to get away from Amidhan this month, but I guess that’s because he doesn’t often give his gob a rest.


    • Amidhan-MUI-2011MUI-Indonesia


    Now he’s urging youngsters to watch a serialised tv drama about Al-Ayyubid Shalahudin  – whom we dreadful Western folk know well from our history lessons as Saladin.  


    Amidhan wants the kids to sit enthralled as Saladin strides forth and rides his stallion majestically across their tv screens.


    ..He said that the leadership of Salahuddin in the past had shown the world how powerful Islamic forces were at that time. One of the main factors was that Muslims were united and not split despite having different backgrounds. The series demonstrated how Muslims should unite to put aside differences. At that time, he said –

    Muslims were able to come together and dominate the world.


    World domination, the dream Amidhan wants to inculcate into young minds.

    Yes, it’s my translation, but I’m attaching the original Republika.com report at the bottom of my page so sceptics can see for themselves that I’ve not distorted Amidhan’s nostalgic paean to an era of Islamic imperialism.


    I’ve never seen that Islamic warlord Saladin portrayed ( in ‘infidel’ Western films, BTW) as anything other than a decent gent, but it remains true that his cause was far from just.


    jerusalem Jerusalem in days of old

    Jerusalem, and Palestine as a whole, were for centuries part of the Roman, later Byzantine, Empire, and its people were overwhelmingly Jews and Christians – and pagans, worshipping Jupiter etc.

    They did not suddenly convert to Islam. The Muslim conquest of the area was an act of brazen sectarian imperialism.

    That’s why I tend to find criticism of Israel as some sort of colonialist occupation state so ludicrous. The post-war Jewish settlers merely took away from the Arabs what the Arabs had taken from the people who’d lived there for ages under Rome and Constantinople. 

    It is tempting to review the UK report on the English moron who wanted to ban England’s St. George’s flag   – Radstock Rocks – Total Victory for England’s Flag!  – because it resembled Crusader banners. A subservient mentality, exactly the opposite to Amidhan’s triumphalism.

    By rights, looking at the facts of history, the Crusaders were a liberation army. They succeeded in pushing out the Saracens for a while from the lands those Saracens had seized by force of arms, but then they lost to Saladin’s determination and strategic skills.  

    In modern times, Saladin’s heirs have similarly lost out to the Israelis – again and again.

    Europe and Islam Islamc conquests


    So serious students of history should be aware that there was no question of Islamic incursions into Palestine, nor, later, Europe, being exercises in peaceful persuasion. Their armed aggression is a matter of record, and only heroic resistance by valiants in Iberia and on the Danube saved all our countries from such jihadist expansionism.


    Had Saladin, and those who came after him, indeed, as Amidhan fondly puts it ‘dominated the world,‘ London might well be full of drabs in burkas, its citizens ordered to comply with shariah law.


    Another nogo area in Londonistan




    Dia mengatakan, kepemimpinan Salahuddin pada masa lalu telah menunjukkan kepada dunia betapa dahsyatnya kekuatan Islam saat itu. Salah satu faktor utamanya adalah umat Muslim bisa bersatu dan tidak tercerai berai kendati memiliki latar belakang berbeda-beda. Lewat serial itu ditunjukkan bagaimana seharusnya umat Islam bersatu dengan mengesampingkan perbedaan-perbedaan.
    Pada saat itu, kata dia, umat Islam dapat bersatu dan menguasai dunia. MUI: Salahuddin Al-ayyubi Bisa Satukan Umat Islam …

      Good morning, Ross, I have been too busy to comment a lot but youre off to a good start today.

      I agree with you completely. We used to have lots of films about Richard the Lionheart V Saladin and I don’t know how accurate they were but Saladin was always a noble opponent, no propaganda style to them about how all western countries should now unite and get Christian domination of the world.

      The more of Amidhan’s speeches I read, the more I think he needs to take a break, lie down in a cool shady room and relax with a long drink.


    • Erina 11:47 on June 30, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      Amazing Amidhan, he is not can be happy to see the children just enjoy the Shalahuddin action series, except it must make it all about global caliphate.
      President Joko Widodo talks about Pluralism, MUI about Domination.
      So who will Indonesia follow?


    • syari 11:37 on July 1, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      His MUI friend Al Khaththath talks also about old wars, still angry that Philipines is Catholic not Muslim. Religion of Peace.

    That Fool Francis Needs a Long Spoon! 

    Pope Francis meets the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas at the Vatican, May 16th 2015


    Pope Francis presented Mr Abbas a medallion representing an angel of peace, telling the Palestinian leader he thought of him “as an angel of peace.”


    It’s probably inaccurate to call Francis a fool.

    He MUST be fully aware of Abbas’ long record of honouring cowardly terrorist killers, and abusing Western financial aid to pay salaries to convicted terrorists in Israeli prisons.




    So why the bare-faced lie? Abbas may be many things, but an angel? 

    One can appreciate diplomatic manoeuvring, yet that is possible without such a fawning act of mendacity.

    Frankly, I know not why.

    But I don’t trust this Pope, never have since his simple-minded outburst about punching people on the nose if somebody’s rude to your mummy. That was widely, and predictably, seen as legitimising primitive violence over harmless cartoons.

    Francis is a fairly flawed human being.

    Petition Against Grisly Gaza Game! 

    Most RRA readers understand that the Hamas regime in Gaza is responsible for the death and destruction there. Launching terror raids against Israeli civilians has left the victim country no choice but to retaliate, though biased media here in Indonesia can’t seem to take that on board .


    Air Mata Kobane? No Bleeding Heart Dirge for Kurds On TVOne? 


    But that’s one thing.

    It’s something else entirely when Palestinian terrorist attacks are turned into a ‘game,’ marketed online!’

    Last week, “Gaza Man” — a game promoting terror and the murder of Israeli soldiers — was released on the Amazon Appstore and the Google Play Store.

    Our petition to remove the game from the Google Play Store was a success. Google relented and did the right thing. Now we need to double-down and make sure Amazon removes the game as well.

    “Gaza Man” is nothing more than a tool to promote hatred, violence and the murder of Israeli soldiers among Palestinian youth.

    Join our fight and tell Amazon: Follow Google’s lead. Do the right thing. Remove “Gaza Man” from the Amazon Appstore.


     Sign the petition here –

      I can’t find the app in the Amazon store. Maybe they already removed it.

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

    Just got home and tuned into EuroNews, of all things!



    The lousy scumbags in Gaza – aka Hamas – have admitted they murdered a baby girl and are not in the least ashamed of their latest atrocity.


    TVone, here in Jakarta, has long emblazoned news reports from Gaza with ‘Air Mata’ (tears) drivel, because Jewish casualties – even a babe in arms – are a matter of indifference to sectarian bigots.

    We understand they lack conscience, but given the scum votes their billionaire owner, Aburizal Bakrie, of the Golkar Party, likes to accumulate, we also understand their motivation.

    Bekasi’s Hitlerian Ultimatum to Ahmadis – Update on GolkarParty’s Intolerance 

    They are beneath contempt.
