Don't Send Aid To Indonesia

I know that sounds horrible, especially if you have recently read about the 145,000 homeless in Jakarta, but sometimes you just need to know when to say, "Enough."

I understand that the flooding that took place is a natural disaster, but so was the tsunami in 2004. Let's not forget what some of those relief funds were used to finance in Aceh.
WHEN people around the world sent millions of pounds to help the stricken Indonesian province of Aceh after the Boxing Day tsunami of 2004, few could have imagined that their money would end up subsidising the lashing of women in public.

But militant Islamists have since imposed sharia law in Aceh and have cornered Indonesian government funds to organise a moral vigilante force that harasses women and stages frequent displays of humiliation and state-sanctioned violence.
Isn't zakat one of the five pillars of Islam? Indonesia should call upon its fellow Muslims for those donations, because kafirs like me aren't yet forced to pay the jizyah to the religion of peace.
