When disaster hits, Indonesia's Islamists are first to help

Jun 19, 2019

PALU, Indonesia — The flags hanging outside Anwar Ragaua's house have drawn warnings from police, but the wiry 50-year-old vows he's not taking them down. After all, the police weren't there to help when he was the sole fisherman in his village to survive the tsunami that inundated the Indonesian city of Palu at dusk on Sept. 28. Nor was the government. Nor were the aid organizations that swept into the stricken region in remote central Sulawesi. Instead, the first people to offer him hope — and a new boat — were deployed by a hardline Islamic group notorious for...

China issues travel alerts, slams US 'interference'

Jun 19, 2019

BEIJING — China issued a pair of travel warnings for the U.S. on Tuesday and slammed what it called "interference" in its internal affairs. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang accused the U.S. of acting in bad faith in trade negotiations and said any attempts to interfere or undermine China's stability would be "doomed to fail." The volleys of criticism between the two largest economies leave them further than ever from resolving their standoff over U.S. complaints that Beijing resorts to unfair trade practices and unscrupulous methods to obtain advanced technologies. The Chinese comments followed a statement from the U.S. Trade...

Challenge to Indonesia vote makes big claims, weak on proof

Jun 19, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — The court challenge to Indonesia's presidential election from the losing candidate claims that the police, intelligence agency and other state institutions were biased in favor of the incumbent, but its evidence for "massive" fraud is mainly printouts of news articles. Former General Prabowo Subianto has refused to accept the results of the April 17 election and instead declared himself the winner. Seven people died in what police say was orchestrated rioting in the capital last week after official election results confirmed President Joko Widodo had won a second term with 55.5% of the vote. Subianto's legal challenge...

China deploys Confucius in bid to boost religion controls

Jun 19, 2019

BEIJING — China has begun five-day Confucian culture immersion courses for religious leaders in the sage's hometown as part of a campaign to extend government control over faith communities through a process of sinicization. The ruling Communist Party's United Work Front Department said in a news release issued Monday that the activity was designed to ensure the primacy of traditional Chinese values above all. "To hold activities here ... is a collective tribute to excellent traditional Chinese culture and a conscious identification and integration with Chinese culture," said the release, posted on the department's website. Participants pledged to "cultivate the...

6 die in Indonesia riots; Widodo says he won't allow unrest

Jun 19, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesian President Joko Widodo said authorities have the volatile situation in the country's capital under control after six people died Wednesday in riots by supporters of his losing rival in last month's presidential election. The clashes began Tuesday night when supporters of former Gen. Prabowo Subianto tried to force their way into the downtown offices of the election supervisory agency and have continued unabated since then.
