Indonesia jihadis says Assad is Hitler – praise indeed

by | 14th, August 2012

YESTERDAY supporters of the Indonesia’s Islamist Prosperous and Justice Party (PKS) protested in Jakarta against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s use of violence. At the protest, party members carried a banner proclaims Assad to be like Adolf Hitler. Is this a good thing? The PKS have links to Indonesia’s Hizbut Tahrir:

Ata Abu-Rishta, the global leader of Hizb ut Tahrir…called for the “destruction” of Hindus living in Kashmir, Russians in Chechnya and Jews in Israel. “The Caliphate (global Islamic government) will liberate the countries and the people from the influence of the Kafer (non-believer) and its allies and the tyranny of its men and followers,” he said. Rishta also spoke recently at its annual conference in Jakarta, Indonesia, where, as video footage in the Panorama exposé shows, he whipped the 100,000-strong crowd into a frenzy by calling for a war on Jews

And then there is the party’s former leader, Information Minister Tifatul Sembiring, who has quoted Adolf Hitler on Twitter.

Indonesian communication and information Minister Tifatul Sembiring has sparked another controversy on Twitter by posting a quote taken from Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
In his status update on April 8, Tifatul wrote: “the union between two children, when both of them complete each other, this is magic – Adolf Hitler”.

(Sembiring later denied being a fan of Hitler’s.)

So. Hitler / Assad. Does the PKS think he is good or bad?
