    callum:
    In most Western countries the will of the majority is tempered by a defined set of human rights as well as a legal tradition that believes that you can do as you please along as your actions to not harm others.

    And, that set of human rights and legal tradition were defined by.. who else but the majority

    Unfortunately certain factions within Indonesia sems to be determined to drag Indonesia back to the stone age and to close its doors to the rest of the world. It is only a matter of time before it succeeds, kasihan deh lo Indonesia.

    hmm…i wonder why Purbo Negoro is so worked up abt saying other countries are so full of whores etc etc…how does he know…from the media or first hand knowledge. i think it’s the latter. Will making pornography or prostitution illegal cut down on the any of the intended targets? Probably not, ( dont believe me? check out all the countries that has tried criminalising them) it will drive these things underground, diseases will go unchecked, criminal gangs will dominate these area…( not that they dont already…but thos will only get stronger) so what will these vague, betele-tele law achieve? well it wont stop any of the acts it will just allow employment to narrow-minded religious police so they are able to crack down and have legal right to do so. So i think when people say this is Sharia by stealth, it cannot be anything else but that. anyway maybe purbo negoro is a female who’s worried about the female gender, in that case maybe you can rally for education, morality…then work on reducing poverty so young girls like you dont have to sell their bodies to get money to live…drop the facade we all know what you are up to

    We Euros don’t practice sunat Herr Negoro because we live in an enlightened secular society that has transcended specious religious reasons for genital mutilation. Latest theories suggest that the real reason for circumcision was in fact to mash up the genitals of younger male tribe members, thus preventing the older males from being cuckolded.

    God made us perfect in every way did he? That’s why the religious feel it important to hack away at infants genitals is it?

    Given that natural selection/evolution have been proved via millions of pieces of evidence circumcision makes no sense. If there was any survival advantage to not having a foreskin then this would have already been selected for through due evolutionary process.

    Indeed. Possibly not par for the course in a govt. hospital though. Actually in New York Talmud fundie Rabbis still gnaw off foreskins with their teeth. Freaks. Apparently it causes TB of the penis. God Almighty.

    What a stench of “white man’s burden” still clings to you Anglophones.

    Your nation is bankrupt overrun by gibberish speaking widies, spivs hoodies, yardies and other blacks, Poles and Jihadis, your elderly are afraid to walk the streets of even sleepy cities like Bath and you dare prance your bull-sheet moral onanism material to us.

    Interesting article. It had to happen. This is the year of ‘Visit Indonesia’ and a huge push for more tourists. Malaysia currently has 21m tourists per year, Thailand 14m+ and Singapore about 8m. Indonesia is dragging it’s heels with about 5m. With all the natural beauty under the sun and the 4th largest population in the world something has gone wrong. The backwardness of it’s leaders and the constant grab for money i’d say are a contributing factor. Value the person (and their beliefs) and not just their bank balance then things will improve big time.

    What a retarded law, just as retarded to those who wrote it… I currently live in Dubai, these lawmakers should study on how Dubai is coping with all the tourists and expats and yet still have their muslim law respected, and us expats happy!

    So, instead of having these Government bastards coming down to Dubai for a shopping spree, they should open their eyes and learn! I understand that the Indo VP, whatever his name is, came down to Dubai for a visit, and yeah, you guessed it, he’s here just to spend the taxpayer’s money…

    The Indonesian government is horribly incapable! Indonesia has serious problems like the missing of a real waste disposing system, clean water, terrific hygienics causing martial diseases, missing stability of electricity supply and over all: the destruction of its rain forests which will be entirely gone in only 14 years if no 180°-changes take place, probably causing a tremendous change in its climate with gravely more catastrophes and boosting global warming and, by the way, erasing its biggest national heritage and causing many animal species to die out.

    And then, the government does not have anything better to do for years as to debate on whether the nation’s people are dressing properly!!??

    This law will reduce people’s freedoms to a horrifying extend which will definitely not be acceptable for any more single tourist to come to this country which makes a lot of its GDP by tourism.

    INDONESIAN PEOPLE: stand up and fight against sharia laws destroying your country!!!!

    Mr Ingkognito, you are 100% spot on. Basically it is a ‘red herring’ or a ‘wag the dog’ scenario. Another diversion used to alert the uneducated ignorant muslim majority and let them forget the many failures of the Indonesian government since independence. Funny how they are so proud to be independent but they need everyone else and their money to fix the mess they have caused themselves. A case in point is the monorail project. The japs were going to build it because they had neither the know how or money to do it themselves.

    Purba Negoro,

    I do not agree with your opinion. Worse, your reasoning is weak and very typical of the ideologically blinded.

    Just a few of your own quotes (I assume you believe your posts to be of the very high standard that you claim to be missing in Callum’s):

    do I smell the stench of smug (yet baseless) moral superiority from the Anglo community?
    I hope not.

    Reading through your posts and those of your fellow blogging supporters, i get the impression that just the opposite is true. You consider yourself as possessing the moral superiority. My question would be: Don’t you and your fellow countrymen have bigger issues to solve – half of your population is starving and living in the dirt (yes, I have seen the Jakarta slums) and you worry about kissing in the street. Until you get the very basic things right in your own country, I would shut up about moral.

    Europeans do not practice sunat as they have an ingrained fear of being identified as Jews.
    When the Nazis first took American POW’s they erroneously thought nearly all were Jews- until luckily for them- A German-speaking American doctor explained US Army had made compulsory circumcision rule for all Privates…

    I am European and not circumvented. But I am not scared as being identified as a Jew. Why would I? It is easy to make up little episodes such as yours to back some stupid claim – what is your point? Where you there?

    We are not a land full of whores like Singapore, Thailand nor the Philippines and we should not cheapen ourselves like them.

    Is that another of your high quality posts? In the country where I live, you would get arrested for racist lies like that – yet you are walking around with your head high. Where are your moral standards now?

    I could go on and on …

    I will let myself go and draw my own conclusion from the few bits of information I have about you.
    1. Your English is very good, you seem to have been educated in a foreign country. I assume the standards of Indonesian Universities were not up to your own expectations. That also means you must belong to the (financial, if not political) upperclass in Indonesia – otherwise you would not have been able to afford the education.
    2. So, you come to another country. But hey, in Indonesia, your the king as you have money. Here, you are just an average Joe. You don’t look very pretty either (why would anybody otherwise pose in military apparel on a blogging site?), so you don’t have the success with girls (or guys?) you wish you had.
    3. You come back home and find that your foreign education has helped a lot but the stupid bule who was just flown over by his company got your job anyways – because his skin is white. So you are frustrated.
    4. You don’t want other people have more fun/success than you and do what you can to limit them.

    There you go. Maybe 80% wrong, but I bet some truth in it.
    IN my country, for some of your statements you would be called a Nazi. You should know that. Peace.

    European= gutless pansy.

    The cause of our troubles yet you dare prenn in front of a mirror lecturing us, the quaint Colonial.

    Honestly, we should invade at least Belgium, Luxembourg and Holland just for a laugh- give Italy, France UK and Germany all a piece- everybody’s happy and remove the diamond trade from the hands of your carcinogen: the Dutch Jewry.

    At least the Nazis had backbone. You could learn a lot from Putin too.
    Speaking of which- Front Nationale? Resurgent German far Right? Doesn;t Europe have a massively resurgent Far Right Wing courtesy of your limp Leftist governments?

    Nationalism in my country is a patriotic duty- we do not pander to minority ethnics- after all- is not demography majority rule ?

    Enjoy the decadence of your depraved nations before they are over-run with illegally imported cheap labourers from Africa via the machinations of your onn-democratic European Parliament.

    And he who lives in glass houses dares throw stones at us.
    And who said European Colonialism had ended.

    Purba Negro,

    you make me laugh. Your inflated rhetoric does not hide that there is no substance in your arguments. What are you trying to say?

    The countries you want to invade would roll all over you should the need arise. You should get your facts straight. Have a look at their gdp and what the spend on the military (not to forget the nato) and even you should see that. How are you gonna go there? In fisherboats? Or with adam air?

    I have met many very smart and well-educated people from indo and am glad that my overall impression is that your views are those of an extremist.

    So you went to Bath? 3rd tier even by uk standards – but probably just right for a mediocre mind such as yours.

    You have a big mouth on this forum. I bet in the pub around the corner, your the guy who never says anything. Did you talk like that when you were in the uk?

    Hold your pseudo-moral up high, bash your minorities and pray five times a day! bring your country back to the middle ages.

    Steve,
    where are you from?
    Why is your history so poor?

    How do you ascertain I only went to Bath- not merely using a sleepy rural city to illustrate a point?

    And yes of course I spoke like that. English people need someone with some backbone to shake off the Leftist buggerers hell bent on castrating them and their once fine society full of the most intolerable injustices on the destitute yet delusional native.

    Why does Britain have the highest white-flight of Euoprea?
    Highest brain-drain of any OECD nation?
    Must be that marvelous miracle of brown-and-blacks-are-British-too-juth aksth-me-mon Islington effeminism.

    Scottish and Northern Irish- as well as Irish people we admire- they still have some fight left in the dog- and actually far more pleasant and tolerant.
    Dutch are peerless turds, with but a few smug English to compete against them.

    I doubt anyone Indonesian you spoke to was of any consequence. Assuming you did, we learnt a long time ago the art of doublespeak and meaningless platitude from the West.
    That’s where we dark art of backstabbing from the peerless master.

    So go back to importing more lowest-grade Blacks and Pakistanis to bash and bugger grandad in the hospice and hold granny up at knifepoint and impregnate random welfare class women perpetuating your violent mindless youth conveniently distracted from their stolen future, by mindless ethnic sycophants such as yourself appear to be.

    Hope you’ve not got a mortgage.

    Such a fine society- now in ruins. Now bankrupt to boot.

    “Europeans do not practice sunat as they have an ingrained fear of being identified as Jews.”

    No in Britain at least circumcision is not available on the NHS so parents would have to pay for it. It was decided long ago that there is no medical benefit and parents who ask for it on any other than religious grounds are advised that this cannot be done in the hospital but must take place elsewhere.

    That of course does not exclude the number of rare cases of phimosis, (tight foreskin) which is a medical condition and will be treated usually by other than surgical means. An irreverent surgeon friend of mine would always first recommend that a sufferer place his penis between two bars of Lifeboy soap and give it a good whack!

    Purba Negro,

    where are you from?
    Why is your history so poor?

    I am from Germany, been educated there and in the UK. Live and work in the UK now. I did not make any statements about history.

    How do you ascertain I only went to Bath- not merely using a sleepy rural city to illustrate a point?

    It was a question, if you read my post, followed by a conclusion assuming an affirmative answer. Where did you go to school if not Bath?

    Why does Britain have the highest white-flight of Euoprea?
    Highest brain-drain of any OECD nation?

    Where do you get that information from? Go to the London finance district and you will see your brain drain – it is negative: a brain gain. Many of the smartest people from Europe came to the UK in the last few years to work in finance. Germany has a far more serious brain drain problem.

    And yes of course I spoke like that. English people need someone with some backbone to shake off the Leftist buggerers hell bent on castrating them and their once fine society full of the most intolerable injustices on the destitute yet delusional native.

    Oh yeah. So you talk to the white trash guys in the pub and tell them the Pakistani is the reason for their misery? Tough guy. You go to a Singaporean bar and tell the people there their country is one of whores, too?

    I doubt anyone Indonesian you spoke to was of any consequence. Assuming you did, we learnt a long time ago the art of doublespeak and meaningless platitude from the West.

    Yes, maybe not of significant consequence. But at least a few voters in a democracy. Are you so much more important?

    So go back to importing more lowest-grade Blacks and Pakistanis to bash and bugger grandad in the hospice …

    Is it that easy yeah? I am actually trying very hard to get a visa for my Indonesian girlfriend who has an excellent education. It is not that easy. Or do you consider the daughters of your country lower than “lowest-grade Blacks and Pakistanis”? It is very easy to explain any problems by going back to racial stereotypes. How far do you want to go with this? Can you name examples where anything good came from racism? The fact is that the UK has hugely benefited from the import of labor.

    Such a fine society- now in ruins. Now bankrupt to boot.

    It is a big mistake to assume that because of the financial crisis everything is in ruins now. It is called recession, it will go away. My advice: Buy shares now. The US has a GDP of 13 trillion – 700 billion is peanuts compared to that. Even in the worst of recessions, the average living standard in the US or Europe is still tenfold higher than in Indonesia. You cannot even feed the children on the streets of Jakarta, your Government is corrupt. Any problem, solve it with money – are these your moral standards?

    But yeah, if your government passes that law and i cannot kiss my girl on the street in Jakarta, I know where we will not live in the future.

    Steve-
    don’t be silly.
    I do apologise in full- as being rude is not me per se- and I mistook you as British- which I think is actually the worse an insult. Perhaps is problem with my English at times- sometimes too, sharp not enough nuance.

    When in Rome, one does as Romans do. We’re a conservative people and intimacy is culturally best kept indoors.
    No butt groping, titty squeezes or kissing passionately in public.

    Even a quick peck on the cheek is frowned upon.
    It’s just poor form here.

    Democracy- is that what the European Parliament in Brussels is labelling itself now.
    Does your EU Reich have full sovereign control- or are your former East German Stasi men still working on that one.

    Isn’t democracy merely tyranny by the masses of the masses?
    We all know it is a silly charade- the elites remain in power and give the masses some crumbs to appease them- whatever the nation.

    Singaporeans. Please- utterly mindless drones wet behind the ears and steered willingly by their Colonial British masters. Their economic miracle is solely attributable to Dutch economist Artemus and Chinese financial fraud and money laundering.
    Their banking system is more secretive than the Swiss.

    Actually your German nation is involved heavily with my military and my nation.
    Germany is one of the few nations we look up to- Habibie is still hiding away there after letting the Australians steal our gas in East Timor.
    I actually have a friend, of a friend who daughter studied ballet there. I think in Munchen- he lived there for 20 years.
    Our arms manufacturer PT Pindad is heavily involved with Rheinmetall- earning your nation millions.

    Seimens, Daimler Chrysler, Theiss (who I work with frequently) Krupps, Lurgi Rheinmetall, Bosch, etc. Many- even some small firms are here for business. German mining machine excellent.
    When my economy improve again- much work very assured for Germans our true friends need not worry.
    Australia, I imagine will get pittance.

    So- in short Germans are in a very different fish to the Brits and the horrible horny Dutchmen- our former masters of their Apartheid here.
    But alas we don’t have a pliant fauning black photogenic leader for the world’s media to onanise over- so we lack the sympathy of the civilised Europeans.

    You must forgive us and apparent rudeness to whitey- we were colonised by the most racist white of all- the Dutchman- had our land stolen under our feet to a hostile and uninvited ethnicity (Chinese) and we seem to be a magnet for Anglosphere pedophiles and sex tourists or other such low-brow flotsam.
    Then we should mention many British attempts to destroy the Republic.
    So that taints our view, understandably.

    But Germans are generally very quiet, low key and reserved people here (totally different to the uncouth boors of Australia and with some British and Americans)- your embassy is one of the largest here and routinely provides scholarships for the betterment of my nations indigenous people.
    Including former President gone astray- Habibie.

    I spent ten years on and off in the UK. In short- I’ve been from Aberdeen down to Porthampton.
    I was sent by my military for specialist training in Taunton, and then Masters as civil engineer- University of London- called Imperial College back then- so I know London and its’ problems very well- including living through one of their race riots.
    Kensington was nice though- though the food in the 1980;s as one can imagine was woeful.
    Bath was a good place for hot food after freezing our testicles off on Salisbury plain. I also like it- people are very nice. Even still. Somerset is very beautiful province.

    I also know the British Army very well enough to know some many of its’ rather homo-erotic games. Including “soggy biscuits” and “spots”.
    I thanked God I was a Muslim- so I could lie that I couldn’t drink.

    British Army has about 130,000 soldiers, approximately 100,00 combat soldier and I know from personal friends I train with, still serving now the equipment is rubbish for all infantry including those who’ve done Telic and Herrick rotations.
    I also am academic specialist on warfare against the Gurkha- we Indonesians are one of the proud very few to have victory against the British hardest unit- massacred already one combat brigade during Konfrontasi in the 1960′s- by irregulars- not even our commando.

    As a combat engineer specialist- I was in KODAM, and have done rotations with Kodam Udayana, Jaya and Siliwangi.
    In Special forces total we have approximately 60,000 plus- equipped to first world army standards- including many fun freeby from your He and K.

    Your West and East German nations helped build our glorious martial nation- you should be very proud.
    Indonesian patriots are very grateful for German expertise.

    Furthermore- my rhetoric here is often merely playing to the audience somewhat too- please do not be so.. what is word?
    Like gullible but without implication of stupidity? I am not sure, but I mean:
    Not believe all opinion you read as at all representative- or even in seriousness- something like this.

    Your wife have no problem here with such high calibre husband. A welcome change to the norm.

    Janma,
    it means it was a way of escaping the very homo erotic “bonding games” practised by the British Army- which are very pornographic which I shall spare the lady from details .
    Let us allude liquor was a common uninhibitor in these barracks room “games” and I could use religion as a beleivable convenient alibi.

    You do not want to know what happens to those who claim they are tea-totaller in British Army. It is not for lady’s eyes.

    Purba, at the risk of hurting our recent truce and civilities, I got to ask, why do you rank us so low in your list of friends? Germany didn’t give too much to you compared to us after recent tragedies in your country. We gave you the most followed by Japan and America. So surely you want to give out work in that order, right?

    I’ll go one further. Although I don’t agree with 90% of what Purba says he is pretty much speaking from the heart of the average Indonesian. I read only the other day that it is hard to station Indonesians in their consulate offices around Australia because 95 % harbour negative views about us. Most based on emotion and lies. This is the way they are raised by their own leaders so it is not the fault of Purba or any individual. The country has a lot of waking up to do. Now look, on face value Indonesians are warm and friendly people and nice to socialise with but we just have to keep in mind they may not like us the way we think they do.
