Just in thanks to Mullah Lodabullah:
Are we financing Islamic fanaticism?
“Millions for defense, not a penny for tribute,” was the rallying cry of the United States during the Presidency of Thomas Jefferson, when it dispatched its infant Navy and Marine Corps against the Tripoli pirates who were raiding American shipping for ransom. Meanwhile, another mindset has taken hold in our politically correct society. When Australia sends a billion dollars in aid to Indonesia after a devastating tsunami, the clerics of Aceh were mostly concerned about female nurses not wearing a hijab, because in Aceh they had sharia law, and that would hurt the sensitivities of the locals, who came running to the choppers with Bin Laden T-shirts, grabbed whatever they could grab and ran away. The government of Indonesia was very concerned that the US-Navy didn’t spent too much time either, since they felt threatened, and in Kashmir after the earthquake the locals took the help of the infidels as a matter of course, without gratitude, it is simply seen as something we owe them.
Then, Indonesian ‘militants’ bomb our young in Bali twice, bomb our embassy, but Bucktooth Bashir gets off with a slap on the wrist.
When a few dumb Aussie-kids get caught with drugs and promptly go on death row, the good folks back home all nod in agreement and say ‘they deserve it’- what’s wrong with this picture?
Meanwhile, we are paying the jiziyah:Â
Jakarta (ANTARA News) – The Australian Ambassador to Indonesia, Bill Farmer, and Indonesian Minister for Religious Affairs Muhammad M Basyuni here on Wednesday attended a ceremony at MTs PSA Al Fauzan in Labruk Lor, Lumajang District, East Java Province, to mark the opening of 46 Islamic junior secondary schools (Madrasah Tsanawiyah) that have been built with Australian assistance.
The construction of the 46 schools commenced in 2006 and are ready for the 2007 school year, which began last month. Work is due to commence in coming weeks on further 275 Islamic schools that will open to students in mid 2008.
Farmer said the schools were part of the Rp2.5 trillion Australian Government program which is funding the construction or expansion of 2000 schools in 20 Indonesian provinces until 2009.
“Of those 2000 schools, 500 are madrasah, which demonstrate clearly the importance of Islamic schools to the Indonesian education system, and Australia’s understanding of their role in educating Indonesia’s children,” Farmer said.
The construction program will create more than 330,000 new junior secondary school places for 13 to 15 year olds, targeting children from poor and remote areas.
Al Fauzan school is built on land that was donated to the public by the Lumajang District head and Al Fauzan Foundation.
Local people built the school using locally supplied materials. All school sites were selected based on an assessment of unmet demand, enrolment rates and community involvement.
“Australia continues to support education in Indonesia, recognizing it can significantly improve the quality of people’s lives,” Farmer said.
* Sure. Give them money and pay them to study the Koran. What did Stalin say: ” The capitalists will sell us the ropes by which we will hang them. “
Some 330 junior secondary schools have been built in partnership with the Ministry of National Education. The construction work of up to 1200 general and Islamic schools is expected to be completed by mid 2008, a press statement of the Australian embassy said. (*)
* Strange. Why was there no mention of any secular, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist or Hindu schools financed in Indonesia with Australian taxpayers money? Christian schools and churches in Indonesia are burning, Christian children are being beheaded, and our government gives our tax-money to Indonesia to build Islamic madrassah’s?
Is this a bad dream or a nightmare?
