    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…

    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/

      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. .

    ‘World Press Freedom Day’ In Jakarta – A Jolly Journo Junket? 

    “A free and democratic press should be accompanied by responsibility,” says Minister of Communications Rudiantara.

    Fair comment, Pak!

    Meanwhile, we read the press release, which carries an explanatory note to let us know that WPFD is an annual event initiated by UNESCO.

    Not very reassuring, that.

    We know that UNESCO is not a respectable organisation.

    But never mind.

    There’s more!

    WPFD 2017 focuses on strengthening the freedom and quality of journalism, to make the media more effective in contributing positively to all areas. Especially on the relationship between freedom of expression, justice for all, peace, and inclusiveness.


    Freedom , justice and peace, very nice too, but ‘inclusiveness?’

    What the heck does that mean?


    So at whom should we look this special day, when it seems some 500 foreign journos are in town, a jolly shindig till Thursday, most of them presumably booked into fancy hotels, which all have bars, ideal places for research and networking, of course.



    It is tempting to have another go at the rancid bias of the Western media, CNN, BBC, France24, ABC, etc.



    But we here in Jakarta don’t need to look that far to see how shackled some parts of the media can be.

    We expect nothing more than what we get in terms of bias from media like TVOne, where the journalists purported to give objective news on the Middle East…


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

    .. …while we were subjected to the miserable droning of that pro-Palestinian dirge and the ridiculous pictorial prejudice, that damned flag, with which they graced our screens.

    But at least that wasn’t as bad as the Jakarta Post’s craven editorial silence on book-burning, simply because the JP is owned by Gramedia.

      You cover a lot of ground in this Ross and I won’t even try to comment on all of it, but I just watched the news on Metro .
      You maybe did too, all the ‘press freedom delegates at a fancy ‘gala dinner’ on one of our five-star Jakarta hotels.

      Then they’ll head home tomorrow, hung over and a few kilos heavier, to write even more about the plight of the world’s underprivileged.
      I know you dont like lawyers, but in my book, journalists are as bad as lawyers any day of the week.

      Of our two enemies, I almost prefer the Islamists, because they (except for apostates in our countries) are not part of us and therefore not traitors.
      The liberal media and politicians in our countries who work to undermine our defenses are the ones I would like to see pay for their treachery.

      To tell readers that ‘conversion’ is ‘repentance’ is fake news. Very unpleasant faking too, to make innocents seem guilty, because repentance means giving up evil and they did no evil. It is no crime or sin not to be Muslim.
      The Indonesian media you let us know about are purveyors of fake news and the journalists in Jakarta for this World Press Freedom ‘junket’ should be exposing them.

    Lies, Damn Lies and Amnesty International! 

    Here in Jakarta, the media are largely and blatantly biased in favour of Israel’s enemies.

    TVOne – as covered here on RRA before now…

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

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

    – is one of the worst offenders… 




    But one expects that of a channel owned by one of the top men in the Golkar Party, billionaire Aburizal Bakrie.

    • aburizal-bakrie-01_1 Golkar king-pin Bakrie
    • ===================================
    • . But in other parts of the world, perceptions are less clouded by pro-Hamas prejudice.
    • ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Which is why some agitprop outfits, like Amnesty International, are such busy little bees, ever-ready to smear Israel’s image with propaganda which would do Dr. Goebbels proud.


    I wasn’t aware of how low Amnesty has sunk, until this dropped into my email in-box today.

    Read, and be appalled, then ACT!


    Israel’s army is the most moral army in the world. Last summer, it put its soldiers lives in danger while taking extra precautions to save civilians in Gaza.

    But Amnesty International is demonizing Israel for the very measures it took to save civilian lives.Amnesty International has been caught telling “a complete, provable lie”— manipulating a video to make Israel’s act of compassion look like an act of murder.
    The video published by Amnesty International attacks Israel’s policy of “roof knocking” (firing a warning shot at a target to warn civilians and allow them to flee before a larger missile is fired). Amnesty clocks the time between the two missiles at 1 minute and 9 seconds.
    Amnesty’s “lie”? The source video from a Gaza-based news agency is edited. The agency admits the larger missile was fired FIVE minutes after the “roof knocking” and the IDF even called 15 minutes prior to tell civilians to clear the area.
    Amnesty is telling a “blood libel” to demonize Israel. And isn’t it outrageous that Amnesty is attacking the very actions by Israel meant to SAVE civilian lives? To Amnesty, demonizing Israel is more important than the truth or their credibility.
    Amnesty International can’t be allowed to slander Israel’s efforts to save civilian lives and sabotage her ability to defend civilians.

      Bakrie should be made pay compensation to the Ahmadiyya in Bekasi who hurt by Golkar regent and mayor.
      I do not ever like to watch TVOne, always too much Golkar news, so much bias.
      Also you are truthful about the mean way they are against Israel, stupid TV, always ‘Zionis agresor’ no words about ‘Hamas teroris.’

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


    Every time Israel goes after the Hamas terror machine in Gaza, one has to turn down the volume on Jakarta’s TVOne channel. Why?

    Because they crank up that ghastly droning dirge, some English-speaking jerk ( apparently his name’s Michael Heart – never heard of him till I searched Google recently)  all about how ‘we will not go down’  –  as if the myriad rocket attacks on Jewish civilians were not the cause of the conflict there.



    When they have discussions, they studiously avoid inviting ANYONE Pro-Israel to counter the bleating of the Pro-Hamas freaks they cheerfully host( I’ll apologise if they have ever staged a fair debate – if there was, I must have missed such impressive evidence of journalistic professionalism)

    Jakarta Globe’s Breath of Fresh Air, TVOne’s Pro-Palestinian Prattle 

     And their pathetic caricatures of objective news presentation are invariably plastered with add-ons about Tears for Gaza. (Air Mata Gaza in Indonesian)




    TVOne is something of a sad joke, its notorious bias during the recent Presidential election a major talking-point.  

    Jakarta Campaign Turns Vicious After TVOne’s ‘Red Smear!’ 

    That was simply supine editorial acolytes jumping through hoops tp please the station’s owner, Aburizal Bakrie, Golkar Party leader and billionaire.




    But you’d think where there’s no local party political axe to grind, some sense of fair play might sneak in – for example, TVOne’s reports on ISIS’s evil war on the Kurds (and other victim peoples, not least Christian) Yet funnily enough, no similar dirges, akin to Heart’s, have been assaulting our ears. Nor do we see crass lachrymose add-ons on every news programme.

    I guess Christians and Yazidis and DECENT Muslims like the Kurdish resistance do not stand as high in TVOne’s esteem as casualties in Hamasland, aka Gaza.

    I am moved to post this because I see sad reports that a Kurdish heroine has died in the defence of Kobane. 


    Kurdish fighter Rehana killed fighting IS

    There are reports Rehana was decapitated by IS.


    I won’t stay up late waiting to see if TVOne’s tears flow for somebody worth mourning.

    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.

    They are beneath contempt.
