Modern, moderate Indonesia: Man gets five years for insulting Islam on Facebook

This is the kind of law that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation wants to impose upon the U.S. and Europe, with willing cooperation from Western Leftists and the mainstream media. The  Los Angeles Times and  New York Daily News, among others, have recently published calls for restrictions on the free speech of those who dare to criticize the global jihad and Islamic supremacism.
"Man gets 5 years for insulting Islam on Facebook," from  The Jakarta Post, January 23:
The Bandung High Court has added one more year to the prison term of Sebastian Joe, who was sentenced to four years' imprisonment for the blasphemy of Islam by the Ciamis District Court in West Java.
The high court decided on Tuesday to give Sebastian a higher sentence as it used the 2008 Information and Electronic Transaction (ITE) Law as a lex specialis (special law), instead of the Criminal Code (KUHP) used by the district court, said Sebastian’s lawyer, Anang Fitriana, as quoted by tempo.co on Wednesday.
Sebastian was reported by the Ciamis chapter of the Islam Defenders Front (FPI) last year for a Facebook status he made, which they considered insulting to Islam.
