    Bekasi Jihadist Jerks Amok – Police Tear-Gas Hate-Gang! 

    Having once, regrettably, lived in Bekasi, I was not greatly surprised to read that the cops there had to fire tear-gas yesterday to break up a savage sectarian mob,

    The city is really nowadays just a suburb of Jakarta, though with its own mayor and regent and other trappings of municipal authority…

    Bekasi’s Islamist Regime – ‘We Won’t Allow Religious Liberty If Bigot Thugs Object!’ 

     ….positions all too often held by fanatics or those eager to pander to fanatics, fanatic being a more accurate word for  the sort of vile brutes whom the Jakarta Post delicately describes as hard-line Muslim.

    On the other hand, while evil bigotry in those parts is no surprise, it is in fact refreshing to see the police taking sensible steps against them. Bekasi cops have not always been above reproach.

    It’s fair to say that the foul savagery which has characterised the Islamist bigots of Bekasi (located in West Java Province) has shocked even me, from time to time.

    Their intolerance of fellow-citizens who worship God Almighty in ways different from their own —

    Head-Scarfed Harpies Hurl Dung and Urine at Christians 

    — is hard for normal people to understand but that’s what yesterday’s mayhem was all about.

    The rabble – after Friday prayers, we’re told – ran amok because they think local Catholics should not be allowed to complete construction of the Santa Clara Church.

    We’ve covered this continuing saga of sectarian hatred before, just over a year ago.


    Bekasi Bigots V Religious Liberty, Again! 

    According to the JP, hundreds of hollering freakos – fresh from prayers, remember –  coordinated by the ludicrously named Forum for Bekasi Muslim Friendship showed up and tried to force their way into the church, emphasising their commitment to selective Friendship by hurling rocks and bottles.

    Those are dangerous things to throw, so the police were surely very restrained to use only tear-gas to disperse them.

    Some people might think live ammo would have been a proportionate response. 

    Whatever, it seems to be the case that Ismail Ibrahim, a cleric and organizer of the protest, feels no shame about his fan-club’s thuggery. He told the media they would not disperse until authorities met their demand to cancel the church’s construction permit. 


    Please note, the Santa Clara Church has gone through the very rigorous process of getting government permission to build their place of worship. Even the very sternly Islamic mayor there endorsed their right to go ahead.

    Bekasi Bigots V Religious Liberty, Again! 

    Having risen early for the eclipse, I decided to catch up on local news and was not in the least surprised to read that an Islamist rabble has once more disgraced Bekasi, a city on Jakarta’s perimeter where I used to live.

    That was not a pleasant experience (living there, not reading about the current mob of intolerants, though that’s not pleasant either!) and I was glad to get back to Jakarta a dozen years ago, and have done my best to avoid Bekasi ever since.

    It’s in West Java, one of the most benighted provinces in Indonesia in terms of religous freedom, and we have in the past covered numerous examples of Bekasi bigotry, not least the frightful persecution of the peaceful Ahmadi minority..,

     and the equally sickening jihad against Christians. 

    Christ’s Ascension Day – Islamist Savages Pelt Congregation With Sewage, Urine and Rocks 

    The latest outburst of primitive zealotry concerns the Santa Clara Church being built, perfectly legally, and Islamist rage. allegedly due to its proximity to one of those ‘pesantren,’ the Islamic boarding schools,which may not all be centres of fanatic indoctrination but in many cases are just that.

    Around a thousand protesters calling themselves the Bekasi Islamic Forum converged on the Bekasi city government offices west of Jakarta on Monday (07/03), to protest against the construction of a church, which they say is situated too close to an Islamic boarding school.

    So what do the uptights fear? Contagion? What a pathetic pack of pukes!

    But for once the local authorities in Bekasi seem to be taking a stand for tolerance, the Mayor, Rahmat Effendi, sending out a spokesman to say that he had no reason to reject the construction of the church. “The mayor signed the construction permit of the church because all the requirements are met. [The permit] is issued according to procedures..”

    That’s welcome, especially in view of local history.

    However, words are all very well, but Rahmat has to make sure that there’s no recurrence of the disruption the mob caused  at the Santa Clara construction site –  the group prevented workers from entering while dozens of police officers stood by to watch.


    The church permit is in order, the construction workers are carrying out perfectly legal work, earning an honest living, but when this white-shirt sectarian goon-squad shows up, the cops just ‘watch’ when they prevent working-men doing their jobs?

    Are police officers no longer equipped to handle vigilante intimidation? Do they no longer carry guns?

    Or are we to assume that their concept of law-enforcement against the forces of darkness has not advanced since the shameful display at Tambun, which you can read about here.

      This is more like it, a vintage Ross-rant against Islamist extremists. Youre sure to get more Indonesian readers if you write more about the FPI. Until this migrant problem broke out in Europe, you had something to say on religious liberty every week but youve been neglecting that and I think that is a pity.
      I dont say forget the West but we live here so more please about the intolerance here..

      This is just same like you say, embarassing to Indonesia. I am sorry you did not like Bekasi, some family members are living there and they too feel embarass by the fanatic gang.
      But be positive, the mayor is now on tolerance side so maybe Bekasi gets better, yes?
