    Such Joy, Jakarta, To Have A Caring Governor! 


    Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said on Wednesday that the city administration would not accommodate the needs of Alexis Hotel workers who lost their jobs after the city revoked the hotel’s business permit.

    • Anies wins an adoring smile from ferocious fanatic Habib Rizieq, who had recently suggested the Christian Governor Ahok (Anies’ predecessor)  be slain for unacceptably quoting some Koranic verse –.“We encourage the government to process the death penalty for Ahok as soon as possible,” said Rizieq.

    • Aaah, ITMA.

    • We paid some attention to Anies’ rise and rise, notably how he won such a warm smile from one of the most extreme Islamists in Indonesia.

    • But one cannot judge a man from the worrying words of one of his supporters.

    • Fairer, surely, to take his measure by considering the humanity embodied in his own words now that he’s in power.

    • “Don’t act as if the hotel closure has caused them to suffer and they’re the victims of the closure. Everybody that worked there realized that there were violations committed by the business, which means they were all committing the violations together…”

    • Aaah, that grand old principle of collective guilt.

    • Funnily enough, although the Alexis was shut down because Anies averred there was prostitution going on – although we don’t know if he had ever been there to see for himself -.

    • ….we’ve heard not a word about all the big fancy five-star hotels where happy hookers prowl with impunity.

    • What delights will these splendid edifices, when they open for business, offer tourists that the five-stars don’t?

    • Special conditions of employment?

    • We hope that any waitresses and maids who don’t do their jobs properly will only suffer unemployment as punishment.

    • No way will the sort of brutal penalties meted out to little girls in Indonesia’s shariah province, Aceh, up north…

    Get Your Tickets Soon – Jakarta Shariah Tourism Boom? 


    We did report on Sandiago Uno’s astounding promise prior to the Jakarta election – as a  result of which he’s now Deputy Governor – that he envisioned a sharia-inspired nightlife entertainment network in Jakarta.

    But we merely noted it, in a post which covered all the issues that were alarming normal people. 

    The Ugly Face of Islamist Intolerance! 

    Not that Sandiago Uno himself is in any way unprepossessing. On the contrary, he comes across as very presentable and personable!

    But now this rich, American-educated ( yes, truly!) entrepreneur has shown he’s a man of his word.

    Sandiaga Uno to establish sharia tourism zone in Jakarta

    http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/06/28/sandiaga-uno-to-establish-sharia-tourism-zone-in-jakarta.html

    Note, no question mark! This guy is serious about his plan, for the Senen area of  the capital.

     “I think it will be interesting if there is a religious tourism zone [in the area], which is properly arranged with tents. Hence, mobility can be ensured.”

    I welcome that last sentence. Mobility – the ability to get through Senen as fast as possible – would need to be an integral part of any such scheme, as many of us encounter horrendous traffic jams there.

    ……..

    …..

    I sat on a  bus a month ago for nearly an hour, just waiting to get through the underpass beside the big shopping area.

    But what delights would await folks who flitted in and out of Sandiago’s tents?

    Many places popular with tourists who come to Jakarta feature what are invariably described as ‘sexy dancers.’

    =

    =

    Not just ‘dancers,’ NB, which has always made me smile, wondering if the proprietors fear that patrons would not recognise the dancers’ sexiness without being told of it!

    –a–

    However, I somehow doubt that the tents would accommodate any spectacle of that sort.

    Sandiago previously talked of such joys as Koranic readings, but would that really draw shariah-fans to Jakarta when they can easily find THE REAL THING…

    =

    =

    …by taking a short flight up to Indonesia’s most northerly province, ACEH, proudly dubbed by some of its inhabitants as the ‘Verandah of Mecca,’ the ONLY province in the archipelago where shariah is enshrined in the local legal code of law.

    No tedious tents required there, because the quintessence of shariah morality is displayed in the main squares…

    …..

    ….

    …….

    ….young women being beaten by cowards too ashamed to show their faces, before a salivating rabble of voyeurs and fanatics.

    Nor are dancers, either sexy or otherwise, a popular phenomenon up there, where such repositories of wisdom as this kindly old gent have made plain their demerits…

    …to the extent that even the graceful and utterly decorous traditional Acehnese dancing has drawn disapprobation.

    Muhammad Thaib, Regent of North Aceh has  banned all adult women from dancing when welcoming guests in North Aceh, adding that only children should perform the tradition.

    •  ooooo
    • ooooo

    Nightmare stuff, yeah?

    But at least we can avoid going anywhere near Aceh, and Senen.

    How long normal folk can expect to find fun in Jakarta remains to be seen, however.

    ….and Anies may be tempted to listen to benighted FPI views such as that expressed in neighbouring Bekasi.

    There the local government’s Tourism Special Committee was told awhile back by the Chairman of FPI in Greater Bekasi that the Muslims in Bekasi reject the draft law on one point – it would legalize nightclubs.

      Why would anyone come to Jakarta for this? Aceh is shaming our country every day with the sharia law so no need to make sharia tourist place here in our city.
      Every woman in Indonesia should protest.

      Will Sandiago Uno also put dancing ban onto Jakarta?.
      If not will he tell Aceh mullah to visit brain doctors?
      Sandiago must make up his mind.
      Aceh shows how shariah is cruel,for all but most specially for women.
      I wish Ahok was still our governor. He made mistakes but he is not in prison for that. Only for free speech.that we no longer have and soon we women will have no freedom if shariah comes. .

      Congratulations, Ross.
      You said everything I wanted to say when I read this but you said it better than I could, all those quotes and humorous angles that make fun of the whole thing.
      A lot of Arab tourists come here but not to go to shariah shows. You must have seen them, chasing the working girls in the hotel bars.

      I never go to Senen market for many years because there is too much pickpocking there. I do not want to loose my money or bag.
      Now I think even more it is good idea not to go shopping there with too many FPI who think woman is less than man.
      Better I will go to the Atrium mall near it but better still to nice place like you like at Citralan , It is safer there.
      I think only fanatic same like FPI will use the place Sandiago is making so it is no good plan.

      I wont be going to Senen but I never do anyway. Cnce was enough, hot and crowded and prices that rose soon as they saw I was foreign.
      Shariah tourism is a joke, who would come here for that ? If they like watching women getting hurt for holding hands with their boyfriends they can go to Aceh as you say or some other terrible place, Iran or Saudi Arabia
      More reasons to be cheerless but thats what Shariah is all about.

      Thank you.

      Goodevening, Ross, such a long time I do not comment but often I read an think you are doing good work for Indonesia and so tonight I say to myself, do not be lazy to comment.
      This is all true and these FPI and the other fanatics are taking over. We lowly people have no way to stop them so we believed Jokowi will do it.
      But sad to say it, we are mistaken.
      Who will save our country?
