HUH? John Kerry Praises Extremely Intolerant Muslim Indonesia for Its “Religious Tolerance & Pluralism”; Christians Constantly Under Attack
Maybe John Lurch Teresa-Heinz-Kerry has already praised Saudi Arabia and Iran for their “religious tolerance and pluralism.” If not, that’s coming. While in Indonesia on Monday, Kerry praised the country–which arrested the editor of Playboy, banned the magazine (which, in that country, does not feature naked chicks–click on the link above to see the ugly women it’s forced to put on the cover instead), and put the magazine and its employees on trial (which I wrote about in “Allah v. Playboy”)–for its “tolerance.” HUH?
This is an extremist Muslim nation which also had a problem with the Miss World competition because women wear bikinis. This is the country that threatened Lady Gaga and Beyonce and assorted other female entertainers it deemed immodest and “offensive to Islam.” It’s the country where Christians who use the word, “allah,” for their god are threatened with death, where Valentine’s Day is also not tolerated, where the Aceh province enforces Sharia upon Christians and threatens them on Christmas. And, yet, John Kerry thinks that’s “tolerant.” I guess the new definition of tolerance is that the country’s leaders haven’t beheaded John Kerry. By the way, Indonesia has more Muslims than any other nation in the world, so it’s significant that it’s an extremely intolerant country. It’s ground zero for what happens when Muslims are in their greatest numbers.
Contrast Indonesia and John Kerry’s verbal Lewinskys to that country with Israel, which is far more tolerant–extremely tolerant–of Islam and Muslims (Jews are restricted at the holiest of Jewish sites–such as the Temple Mount–because Muslims claim them), Christians, entertainers, gays, beauty pageants, and assorted other stuff (even more tolerant than in America). And, yet, John Kerry constantly attacks Israel for being “intolerant” of the Muslims and Palestinians (who have more rights there than even in Gazastan or the Palestinian Authority.
And what is really important, I thought, was to see just a short distance away the spires of the cathedral, which really is a symbol together of the tolerance that exists here in Indonesia, a very, very critical asset and one that we admire Indonesians for embracing. Much of the world could learn a great deal from your tradition of religious tolerance and pluralism, which is so clearly embedded in the DNA of Indonesian people.
Reader Duane found that and sent these headlines from recent news stories about Indonesia. Please, John Kerry, tell us which of these demonstrate the phantom “tolerance and pluralism” you fantasize about in Indonesia (well, he’s married to Teresa Heinz Kerry, so he’s gotta fantasize . . . a lot).
Hmmm . . . and that’s just a taste of what John Kerry describes as “tolerance and pluralism.”
