Skip to comments.Thousands of Mujahidin on the way to Aceh
Posted on 01/04/2005 7:46:01 PM PST by expatguy
This evening at maghrib prayers throughout Java calls went out for "volunteers" to go to Aceh to provide humanitarian services and "spiritual guidance" for those affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Volunteers from Solo, Kendal, Bogor, Cirebon, Majalengka, Pekalongan and Yogyakarta have answered the call and are being transported in chartered buses to Jakarta. At least 77 members of (JI) departed Tuesday (4/1/05) from Yogyakarta to Jakarta in two chartered buses.
Islamic militancy groups are angry and claiming that Jakarta has refused to allow the charter of private aircraft from Jakarta into Banda Aceh at the request of the Americans and Australians and thus has prevented Indonesians from from providing for their own humanitarian efforts. (According to my sources, this is true. To avoid conflict, high level requests have been made to do all possible to thwart and delay the arrival of militant groups)
Jemaah Islamiah (JI) and Islamic Defenders' Front (FPI) are working to coordinate their efforts and work together - according to sources individuals from Laksar Jihad with their connections to the Indonesian military have requested logistics assistance and so far been refused.
The groups are now in discussions with Gerakan Acheh Merdeka (GAM) with regards to coordinating their "relief" efforts as hundreds of individual members of both JI and FPI and other groups arrived into Medan this evening.
More to come...
I heard a rumor here on FR that some people were shooting at US helicopter in Indonesia. Has anyone heard more about this?
I think it's only a matter of time before our guys get attacked in Indonesia. If it does happen I hope we level the place!
Na Na..na..nah! Ah shucks. Them poor Islamic volunteers aren't wanted...WAAAAAH!
"Daddy!!! That's not fair!!Daddy, they aren't letting me play!"
How about this idea: Let their plane land. Board the plane and take pictures of them all, fingerprint them, get DNA samples.....then refuse to let them off and send them away.Hee. Hee.
Bring it on! It's clean up time....Hit our helicopters and you'd wish you were in a Tsunami instead!
I wondered when the cockroaches would swarm the doorstoop.
Thanks for a good post.
Let them gather. The TNI will have an easier time of it if they are all in one place.
There is an old saying:
"Never bite the hand that feeds you".
If they want to help, they can pony up some cash. Otherwise fry them.
Longjack has translated these german articles for us, be sure to see the slide shows also.
Our Seahawk helicopters are unloading 2 tons of food in
10 minutes in Banda Aceh.
We saw this coming though. This is just the beginning. :(
This article I posted this morning, http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1317663/posts it is a hard read since it seems to be written by someone with English as a second language.
But, I get the direct impression from it that the NGOs are blatantly funding this uprise.
Is is about Bangladesh.
