Muslims are always ecstatic to note that Islam is the fastest growing religion. There are 1.8 billion Muslims in the world today. They forget that even with their population boom, they are outnumbered 3:1 by non-Muslims. Still, their intolerance, antagonism, and hatred for the infidel is so strong that they're making enemies all over the globe.
The leader of a powerful Indonesian Islamist organisation that led the push to jail Jakarta's governor has laid out plans for a new, racially charged campaign targeting economic inequality and foreign investment.
In a rare interview, Bachtiar Nasir said the wealth of Indonesia's ethnic Chinese minority was a problem and advocated an affirmative action programme for native Indonesians - comments that could stoke tensions already running high in the world's largest Muslim-majority nation.
Having America -- The Great Satan -- as your main foe isn't good enough for Muslims. They want to roil over one billion Han.
These people have a serious death wish.
A Saudi-trained cleric, Nasir formed the GNPF-MUI last year to target Purnama, the now-convicted Jakarta governor.
After the Christian is put in jail, they've put their sights on the Chinese who, also, just happen to be non-Muslims.
Greg Fealy, an expert on Indonesian Islamic groups from the Australian National University, said GNPF-MUI is developing a national agenda following the Jakarta governor's conviction.
"They are trying to harness that movement to link the Islamist agenda with inequality. It is, in effect, targeting Chinese non-Muslims," he said. "This is all part of a pitched battle in the run-up to 2019."
Politics of envy + Cancer of Islam = Bad times ahead for Indonesia.
