    Indonesia – Cops Corral Class-War Hate-Gang! 

    The vile class-hate dogmas promoted by communism are not much in evidence here in Indonesia, especially since the PKI ( Communist Party of Indonesia) has long been banned.



    The Reds tried to seize power back in 1965 and the armed forces, with the support of most of the people, hit back hard. Few relished the thought of their country undergoing the evils that attended communist rule on the Chinese mainland.

    Although some ‘liberals’ in the media still whine about the consequences of that bloody strife…

    Jakarta Post – Never Miss a Chance to Re-Hab Reds

    ‘We Don’t Want Communism?’ But if You Did, It’s Time To Apologise!! 

    ..it’s fair to say that there’s no significant body of opinion sympathetic to marxist ideology.

    All the more surprising then to read that just a few miles from where I live in Jakarta, in Tangerang, just across the city limits, a class-hate gang was rumbled last weekend, numerous arrests effected after propaganda slogans…

    Time for the Crisis to Burn!”

    “Kill the Rich!” 

    “Wanna Die As Fools Or Fight?”.

    …appeared ‘on the walls of shops, inviting the populace to riot…’

    That was Thursday.

    The cops went after the perps, described as an ‘Anarko group,’ and by Saturday had picked up no less than five people, who, if found guilty, ) face ten years for incitement.

    Thing is, in normal circumstances, this kind of quasi-marxist hogwash could be dismissed as adolescent antics, perhaps.

    But in Indonesia these dark days, thousands have suddenly lost their jobs, not much chance of finding other work, and a very thin safety-net, which won’t bear too much weight.



    Anxiety, to say the least, is widespread, and one person’s bad day can become a spark that can lead to Gods knows what. I wasn’t here for the 1998 mayhem ignited by Krismon, the economic crisis, but I know a lot of people, locals and foreign, who were.

    Exhortations to ‘fight, kill, burn’ are desperately dangerous, not a prank, and the police response is hardly heavy-handed.

      I heartily agree, Ross.
      The Jakarta Post last week had somebody writing about the danger of how “impoverished residents could blow up in the government’s face if it is not carried out prudently.”
      Crowds can change their mood in minutes and that kind of slogan is not whats needed in our present situation.

      I think you are naming the real problem. Anarko or PKI are same difference.
      My parents gone now but I never forget what they tell about 1965 and years before when communist danger was so strong.
      Never again.

    Pancasila? Seven Years Post-Cikeusik, Ahmadis Still Suffer 

    It was on February 6th, 2011, not so very far from Jakarta, that the infamous Cikeusik Pogrom occurred, three innocent Ahmadis….


    Cikeusik – cowardly scum commit sectarian murder

    Watch the pigs at their bloody work on this link..   http://www.liveleak.com/view.

    …savagely bludgeoned to death by a mob of cowardly Islamist fanatics.

    Victim of Islamist Murder Mob Gets Six Months in the Slammer 

    We lament this atrocity every year and remind all prepared to listen that no justice has yet been done, no charges of murder brought against the swine responsible.

    But the persecution of, the denial of religious liberty to, this peaceful and decent community continues today.

    It’s never stopped.



    Just put ‘Ahmadis’ into our search box over there to the right and you can see the endless saga of vicious sectarianism that afflicts them.


    Just a week or so ago, just a few miles from where I live, just across the city limits that separate Jakarta from Tangerang in the Province of Banten, Islamist bigotry reared its ugly head,

    I quote from the local newspaper.

    Pemuda Pancasila (PAP) Ciputat, accompanied residents and a number of community leaders to reject the construction of the Ahmadiyah Jemaah Mosque in Ciputat,  South Tangerang, on Saturday (20/01/2018)


    Dampingi Warga Serua Indah, Pemuda Pancasila Tolak Pembangunan Masjid Jemaah Ahmadiyah

    Their rejection of the Ahmadiyah Mosque was also demonstrated by the installation of banners at the entrance of the empty land.

    Needless to say, the notorious thug-gang, the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) was reportedly present. But that’s par for the course whenever intolerance is in the air.

    FPI in West Java – ‘Let’s Burn Out the Orphans!’ 


    Eager to kill!


    IslamoNazi Gauleiter – “Women Already Have Limitations, Let Alone Non-Muslims!” 

    Again, search ‘FPI’ and you’ll see what we mean.

    It was the presence of the Pemuda Pancasila that caught my attention more than anything else. 

    Pemuda simply means Youth, but Pancasila is Indonesia’s national ideology, a key tenet of which is pluralism, respect for all Indonesians’ right to worship Almighty God.

    Except it seems, if they upset the so-called ‘scholars’ of the MUI, the Indonesian Scholars Council, whose fatwas are sometimes just laughable…


    …but not always.

    The bigoted fatwa they unleashed some years ago against the Ahmadis has been invoked by fanatics over and over to stomp their right to worship, often by wicked, violent means.

    So an outfit using the word Pancasila ought to be defending religious liberty, you’d think. Instead, astonishingly, the PP spokesman at the scene declared that –

    ” Then the basis of our rejection was quite clear, that there is no last Prophet other than the Prophet Muhammad SAW, “said Abdul Aziz.

    Another protester told the media –

    “So in addition to the rejection of the construction of the mosque, we also reject the Ahmadiyah congregation…”.


    So the objection to the proposed Ahmadi mosque is NOT based on anything that you or I would deem planning grounds, no access problems, no infrastructure problems, no…

    It’s purely because the peaceful minority holds views at variance with Islamist dogma. Very sad, that seven years after the Cikeusik Pogrom, there’s no sign of any mind-set revolution in Tangerang, nor in many other places…

    “Mohon Ma’af?” Blasphemous Brutes Vandalise Depok Mosque! 



    In Squalid Internal Exile, Lombok Ahmadis Denied Voting Rights 

    …nor of any moves by the Government to quash the grotesque discriminatory Tri-Ministerial Decree which has made the Ahmadis second class citizens, and in some cases refugees, in their own country, of which they are loyal and law-abiding citizens.

    PS – here’s a list of examples of oppression which we reproduced last year –In Jakarta, Persecuted Ahmadis Seek Justice!  – there have been other incidents since then.

    1. Sealing Al Furqon Mosque, Kersamaju, conducted by Satpol PP on March 31, 2015.



    NB –The Satpol PP are the civic militia, controlled by local governments throughout Indonesia


    2. Sealing Al Hidayah Mosque, Depok conducted by a group of people on March 19, 2011. It was repeated in February 2017 conducted by the Head of Satpol PP Pemkot Depok.



    3. The burning and sealing of Masjid Al Furqon, Parakansalak, Sukabumi by mobs on April 28, 2008. After that Satpol PP Sukabumi sealed the mosque on July 26, 2016.

    4. Damage to Al Kautsar Mosque, Kendal, Central Java in May 2016.

    5. Prohibition of the use of the mosque An Nashr, Pekanbaru on October 12, 2010. The ban was in line with the letter of Mayor of Pekanbaru to Ahmadiyah congregation to stop their activities.

    6. Damage to Cipeuyeum Mosque on March 13, 2011.

    7. Termination of mosque construction in Kunto Darussalam pasda April 2017.

    8. Break-up of Al Misbah Mosque, New Jatibening, Bekasi on 14 November 2011.

    9. The burning of the Cisalada Mosque on October 1, 2010 by a group of people.

    10. Sealing Baitul Rahim Mosque, Singaparna on 12 April 2012 night.

    11. Rejection of the issuance of e-ID card 1,400 people of Manislor Village, Kuningan in 2012.

    12. Rejection of the registration of marriage certificate at Tanjung Pinang Religious Court on April 16, 2015.

    13. The destruction of Masjid Mahmud, Singaparna on April 15, 2010 noon

    14. Damage to mosques and houses of Ahmadiyah members in Ciaruteun, Bogor on March 11, 2011. A total of 7 families of Ahmadiyah refugees.

    15. Case of expulsion and destruction of houses of members of Ahmadiyah Lombok, NTB.

    If you want more info on some of these cases, you can use our Search box, entering Lombok, Cisalada, or just Ahmadiyah and see the extent of the evil perpetrated against them.

    I wish them the best of luck in their fight against oppression!

    Drooling Pigs – ‘Moral Vigilantes’ Arrested In Tangerang! 

    While it’s still International Day to Stop Violence Against Women, I have to mention four sleazy scumbags.

    Four people suspected of making a couple strip naked and forcing them to march on the streets have been arrested in the Tangerang Regency of Indonesia.

    This kind of thing is nothing new. I remember being shocked when I read a similar report back in 1999, when I was still new to Indonesia.

    Gambar terkait

    In those days, technology was not as advanced as 2017, so only photographs were taken.

    Now what is ludicrously described as an act of ‘moral vigilantism’ which took place on Saturday (11 November) was filmed and the video went viral.


    Gambar terkait


    The unwed couple were accused by locals of performing an unspecified “immoral act” inside a home in a village.

    According to Tangerang Regency police chief Sabilul Alif, the couple were pushed into the street by the vigilantes who rebuked them for being “indecent.”

    ‘moral vigilantism?’


    But the tail-end of the report is more than disturbing, the reminder that in January, two consenting adulterers in Tangerang were forced to march in public, but those responsible were not charged with any crime.


    And a similar desecration of justice occurred elsewhere, in August – again, no charges brought against the scabrous brutes who had  a couple paraded through the streets in rural Indonesia..    http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/indonesian-couple-stripped-naked-beaten-paraded-1647186

    Yet the man thus bullied was charged with adultery!



    OK, we can say that such displays of a moronic mind-set are confined to uneducated ignoramuses.

    But where do they get this sicko mentality from.

    It’s obviously to do with having a dirty mind and a zeal for humiliating women and for making the most of an opportunity to be voyeurs, grubby adolescent panting at a chance to see a woman’s private parts.

    But who passed the laws that allow people to be ‘charged with adultery.’

    Who arrogates to themselves the right to decree what constitutes the proper penalty for adultery?

    I suppose we should just be glad it’s not those benighted ‘scholars’ who are forever yapping about their prescribed remedies for everything that goes wrong, or even just goes on, rightly or wrongly.

    The fanatic Islamists of the state-funded Indonesian Council of ‘Scholars’  -the MUI would make life even more unpleasant if they had their way.

    Get a load of this geezer!


    Syamsul Maarif,  General Secretary of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) Jakarta

    “If the act of adultery is by a married person, then stoning is the sentence, while if unmarried, then it’s whipping,” he said. 



    One hopes and prays that ‘scholars’ like Syamsul Ma’arif,  NEVER get close to governing Indonesia.


    Actually, they are very close indeed.

      They are pathetic and I wouldn’t even call them animals but you make the most important point about this when you describe those Islamist ‘scholars.’
      They talk that rubbish and still get funded by the government? Does the government take their advice on anything important?
      I wonder how long you can hang on there writing the good things you write. It sounds to me like Indonesia is in real danger of going down the Iran road.

      If these morons are taught shariah law from childhood then it’s only natural that they have no respect for women, who under shariah law, are second class human being, forced into head-coverings while the men aren’t, and allowed to marry only one husband while the men can enjoy up to four wives. There’s the unjust inheritance laws too. All bad.

      Second class people get second class treatment, and from what I have read, those scholars ( are genuinely educated in anything worth studying?) are very influential.
      It was their extremist agitation that forced the government to issue the discriminatory laws against the Ahmadiyya Muslims, wasn’t it?
      Stoning? Whipping? In 2017?
      Great, if it’s done to the four droolers your story is about.

      Always happy to see you giving attention to Indonesia. Tangerang is just across the Jakarta city boundary and it isnt nice to think this kind of thing is going on around the corner from where we live but as you say it isnt anything new.
      MUI never get any better. Nothing they say or do would shock me anymore.

    Bravo Densus 88 – Three Down, But LOTS More To Go! 

    Nice to have some good news to report this Festive Season, especially from here in Indonesia, as reported in the Jakarta Post this week…


    The National Police anti-terror special squad Densus 88 reportedly shot dead three alleged terrorists and arrested another suspect in a raid at a rented house in Babakan subdistrict, Setu district, South Tangerang, on Wednesday.

    Though I often lament the failure of courts here to sentence terrorists to the death they obviously deserve…

    Tolong, Pak Presiden! Execute EVERY Terrorist! 

    …Densus 88 have an admirable record of achievement in their sphere of operations…


    shoot terrs


    ….achievement which makes them popular with normal people but highly disliked by the bad elements here. 

    Jakarta Echoes of Gibraltar – How Dare You Kill Terrorists?

    The latest report indicates how much some sectarian primitives in Indonesia hate their fellow-citizens who happen to be of a different faith.

    Densus 88 officers found several active bombs in the house, which were claimed to be ready for explosions at Christmas celebrations. 


    Other fanatics, whilst not resorting to the level of terrorism, are also spreading ill-feeling this year, the IslamoNazi FPI ranting daily against the cute Santa hats that many mall employees wear at work – Subdued Xmas as Bandung clamps down on Santa hats –  as if such ‘Christmas attributes’ are in any sense likely to make the wearers convert.

    There’s a pleasing You Tube video of an honourable police chief in Java telling one white-shirt gang-leader to get lost.


    So here it comes, Merry Christmas, everybody’s having fun!

    Good on ya, Densus 88 – keep up the good work!
