Smiling, celebrity Muslim cleric Ustad Jeffry Al Buchori has no time for the Front Pembela Islam.
Ustad Jefry Al Buchori, often called Uje, telegenic and popular Muslim preacher, says the behaviour of the Front Pembela Islam (FPI) in its attack on a religious freedom rally in Jakarta held by the Aliansi Kebangsaan untuk Kebebasan Beragama dan Berkeyakinan (AKKBB) recently has to be deplored because it is against the teachings of Islam to use violence.
I condemn what the FPI did because it's not in accordance with Islamic doctrine.
Ustad Jeffry said he hoped president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono would take a firm stand against the FPI. 
Please accept my apologies if my memory is not serving me well, but it usually does.
I am sure that, when that evil old swine Abu Bakr Bashir, he who wishes to maltreat infidel tourists, came out of his all too brief spell behind bars, who was waiting there to welcome him but…?
I was sufficiently appalled at a celebrity keeping company with a fanatic scumbag that I have watched his warblings on tv since, but haven’t heard repentance.
And, no, it wasn’t poor old A.A. Gym, though his dalliance with the Islamofascist Hizbut Tahrir was also enlightening as to what constitutes a ‘moderate,’ here in Jakarta.
Can anyone confirm or refute my recollection?
Ross, I don’t know about that, I tried some of my “power searching” techniques on Google and came up blank on the Jefry-ABB connection, although it wouldn’t necessarily surprise me if it were true.
I saw it in TV today, Ustad Jefry was attending the FPI court. And the presenter mentioned Ustad came to support Habib Ridzique and also ustad Anton Medan. Is the presenter telling the truth or only her/his perception?
Everything is not always what it seems.
“Everything you know is wrong.
Watch more TV.”
