Wake up Australia: Saudi Arabia’s influence on Indonesia is increasing

Saudi Arabia is getting too close for comfort to Indonesia. It has already been revealed that funding from SA and other gulf states to the extremist Islamic sect of Wahhabism is scaring moderate Muslim leaders in Australia who are begging the government to intervene. Now I am wondering if Saudi Arabia is also building up military support from the largest Islamic population in the world that is right on Australia’s doorstep.

Not for almost half a century has Saudi Arabia’s King graced Indonesia with his presence, but that’s all about to change, in a big way.

…the ambassador said the King’s six days in Bali would not disrupt the holiday island, a signal bikini-clad women could still roam free.

The fact that people even considered that his visit would impact the freedom of citizens to dress how they like shows just how much power the Saudi Arabian King is perceived to have over Indonesia already.

Ignorance of and leniency towards Salafi ideology are two major problems in Western nations

I contacted Nicolas Pirsoul who is a doctoral candidate in politics and international relations at the University of Auckland recently because his research interests include issues around democracy and Middle Eastern politics. I told him about the story we had broken about Salafist Dr Sahib and asked him if he would consider writing an article for Whaleoil in reaction to the story since it had been picked up by the mainstream media both in New Zealand and in Britain. He politely declined because he said he was currently working on several articles and opinion pieces already.It appears that one of the pieces he was working on was for the New Zealand Herald.

Isis, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and other terrorist organisations are all inspired by a particular understanding of Islam: Salafism.

Salafism is an extremist, literalist, and intolerant form of Sunni Islam…

Salafism obtained the important political power it continues to hold today when Muhammad ibn ?Abd al-Wahhab formed an alliance with the al-Saud family during the 18th century to give birth to the Saudi version of Salafism, Wahhabism, the state religion of the current kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi Arabia developed as a major political force, due in large part to its oil production and its status as one of the West’s principal allies in the Middle East, Salafism further expanded its political and geographical influence. Saudi Arabia has continued to use its wealth to propagate Wahhabi ideas thorough the Islamic world and Muslim communities in the West.

Given these facts isn’t it strange that all those Sunni Imams from Egypt were sent to New Zealand this year to combat extremism? You know, the extremism that we don’t currently have in New Zealand according to FIANZ. Who exactly were these Imams targeting? Were they concerned about Salafists like Dr Sahib from Saudi Arabia who are propagating Wahhabi ideas?

I was particularly disappointed by the lack of response from New Zealand’s feminist organisations so I sent four of them an e-mail inviting them to respond six days ago. I included a link to our video and followed up three days later with another video that showed them specifically the misogynistic?comments that he made.

We are all enemies of Islam “including those who call themselves Muslims”

On Stuff Dr Sahib was quoted as saying that he does not…

… “hate any human being regardless of their faith,?place of origin, race, colour and political affiliation”.

“Sadly and falsely, I have been accused of giving hate speeches and being anti-Semitic,” he said.

“I have always preached for peace and harmony in the society.”

He claims the “cut and paste” video that surfaced on YouTube was taken out of context.

-Stuff

His above words are in stark contrast to what he said on this video, the third one in my series on context.

You can read part one here?and part two here.

Part Two: Out of context I don’t think so

When we posted a video containing extracts from lectures given by Dr Sahib he demanded an apology and said that the anti-Semitic and misogynistic words we had put together in the video were taken out of context. In order to show the context for one quote I watched one video and wrote the following post. Before I could analyse the second video however the mosque shut down their Youtube channel’s public access and I thought I would be unable to show the context of the rest of the quotes.

Fortunately, a reader had taken the time to download the videos so I have been able to continue in my quest to provide context for each quote.

The context of the second quote was that it was taken from a lecture about slander. A story was used to illustrate the message. Dr Sahib tells his audience about a 15 year old wife who?was falsely accused of doing something forbidden with the man who leads the end camel of the caravan. She had been accidentally left behind by the caravan after she had left her camel to answer the call of nature. Her camel had a tent like structure on it so they were not aware that she was not inside when they left. The guy who rides at the tail end of the caravan finds her sleeping without her face covered. He looks away and says something and she wakes up and immediately covers her face. He then gives her his camel to ride on. When they reach their destination she ends up sick for a month unaware of the slander that is being spread about her and the last?camel guy. When she is told about it she says to her husband?
