BANYAN TREE INFIDELS
One thing about Indonesia is the seemingly endless number of groups jousting to inflict their own twisted vision of virtue upon us. "Persis" or the United Islam Youth hacked to pieces a 100 year old Banyan Tree located near the Harmoni Bus Center in Jakarta. Apparently the infidel tree had the potential to "corrupt religious and moral faith" according to group spokesman Zenal Arfin Abu Dhiya.
As could be imagined a 100 year old Banyan Tree is fairly significant piece of nature and took some time to be ravaged by Zenal and his little helpers, there is no word on where the police were during this time.
The Banyon tree joins other such notables as dutch cartoonists, the pope and centuries old statues in Afghanistan to raise the ire of the hive mind.
However, there is a very strong connection between Zenal and the Banyan Tree one gave the community oxygen all of its life the other stole it.
I am not a big believer in the Earth Mother thing but tonight I might just offer up a pagan prayer for justice. It is often heard that the media protrays Islam in a negative fashion, with groups like Persis around perhaps its time to stop blaming the media and stop the lunatic fringe groups hijacking the name of Islam.
Meanwhile beware the Earth Mother, she can be a mean bitch!!! and if there is a Judgement day is should be interesting when the best thing one can offer up as a life's work is "Well I did hack a tree down that took you 100 years to create"
