    Why Not, Pak Wiranto? Avenge Munir – And The Martyrs! 



    A baffling response from Indonesia’s Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Wiranto yesterday.

    It seems that reporters ambushed him and asked him about the Munir case, which remains unresolved after 13 years. 


    Peculiar word to use, ‘ambush,’ as if a government minister should not be prepared to answer questions when he’s out in public.

    Especially questions related to his specific ministerial responsibilities.

    “You should have talked about our development, or our plundered territory. Why talk only about [Munir]?” Wiranto replied

    Well, maybe, because more than a dozen years have elapsed, and the hireling Polycarpus, convicted of murdering the innocent Munir, has long since been released…

    Munir, Don’t forget him!

    Munir’s Murderer Free – Jakarta Justice Mirrors Western Weakness 

    …despite not telling the world which cowardly creeps hired him to do a job which the said cowardly creeps were not up to doing for themselves.

    It’s all as much a mystery as when we published another post in February.

    No NEED To Tell Munir Murder Story? But CAN They? 

    I hope President Jokowi is on the phone today, reminding Wiranto that Wiranto’s office has been appointed by Jokowi to lead the settlement of cases of human rights abuse in the country..

    Munir’s case is hardly unique.

    More recent, equally heinous, crimes against humanity have been committed in Indonesia, such as the murder of the martyrs in the Cikeusik Pogrom…


    Cikeusik, Banten Province, February 6th, 2011. Watch the pigs at their bloody work on this link..   http://www.liveleak.com/view.


    …where three blameless members of the peaceful Ahmadi religious minority were bludgeoned to death by a mob of vile sectarian bigots.

    No murder charges have yet been brought.

    Victim of Islamist Murder Mob Gets Six Months in the Slammer 

    Wiranto would earn nationwide applause if he were to re-open that case and demand the death penalty for all those who can be detained, prosecuted and convicted of the crime.



    AND if he were to order the release of all the information the government has, wherever it’s locked away, about the hidden hands who directed Munir’s murder.

      Good one Ross.
      I admit I hadnt even thought about the Munir case for a long time but its something Wiranto needs to be talking about.
      Even better if he did something to get justice for those Ahmadis but the government here doesnt show a lot of interest in religious liberty,’
      Its very disappointing after the high hopes when Jokowi was elected.

      Why do we must ask Wiranto? He has the duty to investigate and report to us.
      The government of Indonesia is there to serve Indonesians and not to complain when we ask them questions that are important.
      I see President Jokowi on television all the time and wish I can ask him questions but how can we do that? Always he is with his servants and politicians and they will never question him.

    Hizbut Ban -Will Jokowi Put Canberra To Shame? 

    How nice to wake up and get a pleasant surprise from Indonesian politics for a change.



    That’s my initial reaction to the news that President Jokowi’s Security Affairs Minister Wiranto told the media yesterday that Hizbut Tahrir has been promoting values that contradict Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution.




    It’s hard to see how anyone aware of HTI’s ideology, which I’ve summed up as ‘caliphofascism,’ can disagree.

    Not only has the fanatic group openly denounced democracy…


    ‘Charlie Hebdo – Proof of Democracy’s Rot!’


    …but they are explicitly hostile to national sovereignty, their aspiration being the subjugation of all independent countries to a supranational Islamist regime, harking back to the despotic Ottoman Caliphate which was admirably scrapped by Kemal Ataturk after the First World War.




    If the government here keeps its word, Indonesia won’t be the only Muslim country to outlaw these fanatics. However, Wiranto had best make sure the country’s security services are on board with the plan. We have seen police actually consigning helpless children to their clutches…


    Muslim School Burned by Angry Crowd –Police Enlist IslamoNazis to Counsel Kids! 

    ipso facto enabling indoctrination by both that gang and with other unwholesome elements here.

    True, that was a local decision but did national police HQ step in, rescue those kids and fire the senior officer involved?

    Hizbut Tahrir is a trans-national organisation.

    Hizbut Tahrir UK – “When ‘Moderates’ Talk of Peace, They’re Lying!” 

    There’s been talk – only talk, thanks to weak-kneed British and Australian politicians – of banning them in both Australia and the UK. 

    Petition · Hizb ut-Tahrir: Call to ban group in Australia · Change.org

    Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is being urged to ban Islamist extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir from Australia…

    ‘Ex-Muslims should be free from death threats’

    So, although in Jakarta there’s always a risk of ‘many a slip twixt cup and lip,’ it looks like Jokowi is showing more grit and guts in his handling of the Islamist menace.

    It would be churlish not to applaud him, though let’s hope this ban won’t be the last.

    • Rightly, the  PKI (Communist Party of Indonesia) has long been prohibited from spreading its vile marxism here.

    I’ve drawn the parallel before – Indonesia Retains Red Ban – So Why Not HTI Too?  – that there’s no reason why similarly toxic jihadism should not be dealt with in the same way.

      I wish I can live in another country.
      This is not my Indonesia when this good man must go to prison and the bad FPI are free.

    So Has Indonesia Come To This? Paradise Lost? 

    Nearer twenty than ten years in Indonesia, and today, for the first time ever, I began to wonder if my long-cherished plans to spend the rest of my life here might be at risk of derailment.

    • I was watching, from time to time, the so-called Peace Action, the demonstration that brought all the most fanatical Islamists in the archipelago together, to seek the severest possible punishment for Jakarta Governor Ahok…




    … who had the temerity to mention a Koranic verse in one of his re-election campaign speeches, in terms which got the jihadist elements all hot and bothered.

    Suddenly I was taken aback,

    There was President Jokowi, with other senior members of his government ON THE STAGE, with Indonesia’s most infamous bigots.


    • jokowi
    • 00000000000000
    • He was almost side by side with Habib Rizieq, of the FPI white-shirts, the  self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front,’ a notorious sectarian gang. Just a couple of weeks ago, Rizieq was ranting that Ahok deserved the death penalty !

    Only Jokowi’s Security Minister, Wiranto, stood between them. Nobody looked at all uncomfortable or abashed at this proximity. Rizieq looked delighted.

    And there’s more. 

    At a public rally at the National Monument, hundreds of thousands of member of the mob held Friday prayers in the rain. Before the prayer, Habib Rizieq Shihab become their preachers and delivered a sermon.


    • habib-fpi-rizieq
    • ————–
    • Rizieq’s sermon was heard by all participants, and even President Joko Widodo also listened to the preaching of the high priest of the Islamic Defenders Front.

    As the number one in the Islamic Defenders Front, he said, the Koran is the holy book – there was no ambiguity in it.

    “Do not make fun of the Koran. Whosoever mocks the Quran, then he is an apostate,” he said.

    Jokowi, while listening to a Tizieq’s sermon…along with Vice President Jusuf Kalla, and Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, Wiranto.

    Based on the observation of Jawapos.com, Jokowi also several times bowed like a person fervently listening…while Police Chief Tito Karnavian was on the stage along with Rizieq.

    http://www.jawapos.com/read/2016/12/02/68210/lihat-nih-jokowi-sangat-khusyuk-dengarkan-khotbah-habib -rizieq

    So is there nobody left in the political and security establishment here who might feel a pang of conscience about being part and parcel of a hate-rally organised to put down ‘apostates?’

    When I was sitting there, listening to the President’s repeated intonations of Allahu Akbar, I found my thoughts straying…


    ….to wonder about what it might be like living in some other tropical climate…

      Ouch. You have shocked me, Ross. I like Indonesia but I know you love the country.
      Jokowi will live to regret this day. His decision to attend that demo makes me wonder too.
      I dont think many of that crowd voted for him or will vote for him if he stands again.
      Neither will a lot of Indonesians I know who expected him to stand up for religious freedom and are now so disapointed.

      No Ross, do not go from Indonesia.
      I know what is happening is not good with the President at the fanatic demo but so many of Indonesians feel same like you and maybe we can make it good again.
      I am talking to all my friends who like to read you and we all say STAY.

      You like it here too much Ross so you wont be going anytime soon.
      I agree it was depressing to watch what happened at Monas but you shouldnt be surprised at Jokowi. He hasn’t done much for the Yasmin Christians or the Ahmadis and he wont’ You must realise that by now.
      I think you were just a bit down when you wrote that last night.
      Its the rainy season. Once the sun comes out, youll feel better.
