The Jihad in Indonesia picks up speed

IHT recently did a piece on an up-and-coming force in Indonesia, a force that eagerly advocates jihad and the Islamic purification of Indonesian culture, society and politics.

That force is the "Council of Ulemas", a group of so-called 'Islamic Scholars' that recently moved their headquarters from the basement of a mosque to a gleaming new office tower in downtown Jakarta. Infidels should tremble when that non sequitur, 'Islamic Scholar' is ever uttered. Whenever these paragons for Allah emerge from their holes, trouble is almost certain to follow.

Backed by money from donors in wealthy Gulf states, the Council, or MUI in the Indonesian language, seeks the implementation of Shariah law throughout Indonesia, has backed the recent so-called 'anti porn' law, and opposes what it calls "pluralism, liberalism and secularism." Indonesia's recent banning and persecution of an Islamic sect called the Ahmadiyya was due in large part to the efforts of the MUI. This victory will no doubt encourage the Jihadists of MUI --for that is what they are--to continue if not expand their efforts.

The MUI is exactly the sort of movement that is such a danger to the free world. While almost everyone can see the threat of Jihadist bombings, the MUI's 'soft jihad' works more quietly, insidiously, behind the scenes. It is groups like this that destroy freedom on contact.

"Purification" huh? A bunch of Arab wannabes trying to out-Arab the Arabs. Talk about race traitors. These guys are the real race traitors who have no pride in their Hindu-Buddhist-animistic roots. What's even more pathetic is that the Arabs, who fancy themselves as "whites", actually look down on all the brown-skinned Abduls who try so very, very hard to ape them.

Exactly, what idiots. If they ever get their dream caliphate, it will turn out to be a nightmare, where they become third class citizens at best, under Arab overlords. Or they become prey, like in Darfur.
