Indonesia Un-Islamically Puts Up A Statue Of Young Obama
Share
clear

Look here.

This statue is so wonderfully un-Islamic that it would be churlish to complain. Let Indonesia, "the most populous Muslim nation in the world" blah blah, put up all the statues it wants of anyone it wants: Obama, Tiger Woods, Dr. Seuss, Ernie and Bert. . Let the dour al-qaradawis and zakir-naiks rage. And let the theme of Islam as a vehicle of Arab imperialism start to be discussed, in various versions of Bahasa, all over the place.After all, who has endured more directly the cruelty and viciousness of Arab Muslim masters more than all those women and girls from Indonesia, both the ones who work in Saudi Arabia and who make it back alive to Indonesia, and the ones who work in Saudi Arabia and don't.
