100,000 rally for Sharia, Caliphate in Jakarta

JihadWatch

Six years after 9/11, we have arrived at open rallies in support of the imposition of a worldwide Caliphate and Sharia law for everyone. That includes you. Tiny Minority of Extremists Update: 100,000 rally in Indonesia, hoping to impose upon you a future free of pesky things like freedom of conscience, equality of rights of men and women, and equality of rights for religious minorities.

“Stadium crowd pushes for Islamist dream,” by Lucy Williamson for the BBC, with thanks to The One Who Must Not Be Named:

    The dull roars of a football match, the twanging music of a youth group concert – from a distance it is not always easy to tell an Islamic conference from a holiday crowd.

    Inside Jakarta’s Gelora Bung Karno stadium the clues get easier. There are about 100,000 people inside, and everyone is in Islamic dress.

    The women’s section – by far the biggest – is a pitter-patter of ice-cream colours. On their parasols, one word is printed over and over again: Khilafah, caliphate.

    This is the reason why people have come here. To show their support for a single, unified, Islamic state.

    They have been invited by the international Islamist group, Hizb ut-Tahrir. Not everyone believed they would fill the stadium, but Hizb ut-Tahrir is good at bringing in supporters – and keeping them.

Of course. There is no exit door. Read it all.

  1. Military-grade propaganda is, incidentally, the only military “weapon” that people, including civilians, are allowed to use during peacetime. Our side should not hesitate to use this tool to vilify, denounce, and undermine those who would impose their primitive and barbaric system on people who do not wish to live under it.

    Right on Bill. Unfortunately, the powers that be here and especially in Europe are working to strangle even this freedom; witness the decision to remove “Islamic terrorism” from the lexicon, the laws against “incitement to hatred”, the bans on street demonstrations. The ongoing attempt on the part of the EU and the UN to control the internet is another illustration of the insidious effort underway to subjugate us via restrictions on the free exchange of information.
