Siti Fadilah Supari, struggling for Islam and Indonesia against the hegemonic bules.
Health minister Siti Fadilah Supari spoke at a seminar hosted by the "Forum Kajian Sosial Kemasyarakatan" (FKSK) in Jakarta on 17th March and said that Islamic ideology was the most complete and was best suited for Indonesia.
"Forum Kajian Sosial Kemasyarakatan" (FKSK), is a front organisation for the radical group Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI), which campaigns for a worldwide Islamic caliphate and seems to regard Indonesia as the most promising place to get things moving in that direction.

Westerners & Hegemony
Indonesians usually felt inferior when they met westerners, she said, officials bowed and scraped to them, and westerners were tricky:
We get fooled [by foreigners].
Siti said it was about time that the first world stopped using force against the third world, which was majority Muslim.
Hegemony doesn't benefit anyone.
Foreigners acted as if they wanted to help Indonesia but what they did was actually dangerous for humanity:
Don't let us hope for help from others, trust in Allah only.
Siti Fadilah spoke about how for the last 50 years the advanced countries had forced other countries to send virus samples to the World Health Organisation (WHO), samples (like for bird flu) which were then handed over to the US government and put to use for biological weapons development or for commercial purposes.
Siti said she could not stand the injustice of the WHO policy, and has penned a book on the subject, titled "Time For The World To Change, The Hand Of God In Bird Flu". She broke into tears and said of the reasons for writing the book:
If it's useful for Muslims, then why not?
When you are carrying out Allah's work, don't have any doubts.
Meanwhile the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization warned recently that the avian/bird flu problem in Indonesia showed no signs of improvement, with containment of the epidemic among poultry being very weak.
Dr. Joseph Domenech, the agency's chief veterinary officer, blamed decentralization in government, a shortage of veterinarians, indifference by commercial producers, a lack of political commitment, and too many backyard chickens. nytimes
