More media dhimmitude: in this Newsday story, a Chinese woman remembers her ordeal at the hands of yet another unidentified mob in Indonesia, this one driven mad by anti-Chinese sentiment. Oh, and the mob was shouting “Allahu Akbar,” and the woman just happened to be a Christian, but never mind about that.
When rioting swept Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta for three days in May 1998, a wave of anti-Chinese sentiment caught Kwee and her sister. They were among 150 Chinese women stripped, beaten and gang-raped, according to human rights groups, and the sisters’ hair salon was torched.
The pair’s attackers, Kwee says, were men wearing military attire and shouting “Allah Hu Akbar” or “God is Good,” and the Indonesian words for “Kill Chinese.”
