The Indonesians don't have a word for 'gay'.

They appear to be naturally bisexual.


"The warok come from East Java, from Ponorogo. They started as the followers of a poet in a fifteenth century kingdom. They’re supposed to have magical powers, but only if they avoid sex with women. So they have sex with young boys. Melati was also telling me about the royal courts in Bali and in Aceh in Sumatra. Men there also had sex with boys. Have you heard of sedattis?"

"No, and I hope they’re not too extreme," I said, almost in a whisper. "There’s a couple sitting at a table behind you. Kind of big and porky. Might be Americans or Germans. Maybe unhappy Calvinists. Hope they’re not parents of one of my students."

"Sedattis," said Tom in quiet voice, "were catamites, young dancing boys. You got them in both north and south Sumatra. Their job was to entertain men. There was something similar in other parts of Indonesia. On Bali, little boys, called gandrungs, would dress up as girls, and dance for the men." -

Certain fascist elements are trying to change sexual attitudes in Indonesia so as to increase their control over society.

Who are these fascist elements? Possibly they are the American-Israeli fascists who like to follow a policy of divide and rule.

Look at any extreme Moslem organisation in Indonesia and you are likely to find the influence of the CIA and Saudi money.

According to Gay life in Indonesia:

"'People in this country have terrible ideas about homosexuals, which I think is because they don’t know any better,'" said Mardian Kuncoro, a gay man.

"In 2002, the South Sulawesi administration became the first to pass an anti-prostitution bylaw that criminalizes homosexuality. Two years later, the Palembang administration passed a similar bylaw."

Enid Blyton

Enid Blyton

Enid Blyton is the UK's best-loved writer, according to a survey conducted for the Costa Book Awards. (Blyton voted 'most loved writer')

Blyton, who wrote the Famous Five series and the Noddy books, has sold more than 500 million books worldwide.

(Enid Blyton came top, followed by 2. Roald Dahl 3. JK Rowling 4. Jane Austen and 5. Shakespeare)

Enid Blyton's work is translated into 130 languages!

Why so successful?

She wrote like a ten year-old.

Ask an average ten year-old to write an adventure story and it might read something like this:

"Four children go to stay in an old house at the coast. They make tree houses. They ride bikes and have picnics and go swimming. They find some dark caves with secret passages. They take a boat out to a mysterious island. They are captured by smugglers. Without any help from adults, they escape from their incompetent and silly captors and tell their story to the grateful police."

The vocabulary is simple. The story is simple. The prose is child-like. There are no boring descriptions of people or scenery, but there are some details of things like tree houses and picnics and caves.

Blyton has been accused by the horrid PC world of being racist, sexist and snobbish. But, note well that Blyton's books do not encourage kids to overdose on heroin or commit gang rape. They encourage kids to enjoy being kids, and they encourage kids to read. Both adults and children can enjoy the books.

Let's take THE ISLAND OF ADVENTURE as an example.

Chapter 1 The Beginning of Things.

A young boy called Philip normally lives with his impatient Aunt, his non-child-loving Uncle, his sister Dinah, and a "stupid" black servant, at a house on the coast called Craggy Tops. But during the summer holidays Philip, is getting extra tuition at the home of one of his teachers, a Mr Roy. While staying with Mr Roy, Philip makes friends with a boy called Jack and his sister Lucy-Ann. Jack and Lucy-Ann are looked after by an uncle. Note that the children do not have straighforward family backgrounds. Blyton's parents were divorced, and she herself got divorced.

Chapter 2. Making Friends.

As there were only four boys to coach, Mr Roy gives them each individual attention. Philip tells Lucy-Anne that Craggy Tops is "wild" and "queer". Philip takes a hedgehog out of his pocket. "It was a baby one, whose prickles were not yet hardened. Observe that the Blyton world was a world free of child abusers and serial killers. Instead it was a world of harmless teachers and hedgehogs in pockets. Did you know that hedgehogs are bisexual?

Chapter 3. Two Letters and a Plan.

"Uncle doesn't want us back," says Jack. Philip decides that Jack and Lucy-Ann should escape with them to Craggy Tops. As you can see, the children do some pretty risky things, but nothing cruel and nasty.

Chapter 4. Craggy Tops.

The children arrive at Craggy Tops. "It was a queer place." There has still been no violence!

Chapter 5. Settling in at Craggy Tops.

"Lucy-Ann wished she was sleeping nearer to Jack." Isn't she sweet and innocent.

Chapter 6. The Days Go By.

"It was a queer place to sleep for the first time at Craggy tops." Jack shares a mattress with Philip. "Jack soon got warm, cuddled up against Philip's back." Blyton has suspected paedophile tendencies?

Chapter 7. A Queer Discovery.

The children explore the damp dark caves, some of which have "queer holes in their roofs." Dinah pushed Philip. "She had certainly meant to give philip a hard blow." Philip falls into a hole. What would Freud think?

Chapter 8 . In the Cellars.

A secret passage is discovered.

Chapter 9. A Strange Boat.

Philip - "Even when he was wearing bathing-drawers he seemed able to secrete some kind of creature about his body. Yesterday it had been a couple of friendly crabs. But when he had accidentally sat down on one, and it had nipped him....." Is this why kids love Blyton?

Chapter 10. Night Adventure.

The black servant is involved in some dark doings.

Chapter 11. Bill Smuggs.

The four children visit a cove. "The children slipped off their jerseys and shorts and went into the water to bathe." They spy a boat. "What a queer place to keep a boat, " says Philip. Is the pace too fast? Are you embarrased by the strip-tease?

I won't describe all 29 chapters, as I'm sure you've got the idea.

Blyton is gentle innocent fun for both adults and children.

Melchior Wathelet and others.

Wathelet - allegations of child abuse

In 1992, Belgian Justice Minister Melchior Wathelet released Marc Dutroux on parole.

Dutroux had served slightly more than three years of a 13 year sentence for raping young girls.

Dutroux was later convicted of having kidnapped, tortured and sexually abused six girls during 1995 and 1996, ranging in age from 8 to 19, two of whom he murdered. - Melchior Wathelet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following comes from Werkgroep Morkhoven :

"According to a police document from the Dutroux enquiry, obtained by The Sprout, serious allegations about Wathelet’s involvement in paedophilia came to light.

"In these documents, a police source and senior psychotherapist informed a colleague of a session he had been having with a client. The client disclosed the details of events in Verviers (where Wathelet was Mayor) during 1992. He spoke of orgies that had been taking place in a country house where two children had been involved.

"These children, between 8 and 10 years old, had come from a children’s home, with the complicity of the director of the home. The 'party', it is alleged in the police documents, was organised partly by Wathelet. The client reported his involvement in the parties to the children’s welfare office in Verviers and to the local police. In return he received threats from both organisations and from other parties...

"This case was never investigated; as the police report confirms: 'the 2 dossiers on the child welfare services have disappeared'.

"Three years after this report, Wathelet became Belgium’s Minister for Defence in June 1995 but was rapidly nominated to the post of Belgium’s representative at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, where he arrived on the 2nd September."


The Jersey Attorney General, William Bailhache ( AG defends rape case bail decision)

Sir Philip Bailhache, Bailiff of Jersey

According to The Times, 14 August 2008, the Jersey child abuse case appears to be being hampered by certain important people.

Jersey detective’s fury as release of abuse suspects 'scares off 'witnesses.

Lenny Harper, who was the senior detective in the Jersey child murder investigation, found the remains of five children in a former boys’ home on the island of Jersey (UK).

A memorandum from Lenny Harper claims that the investigation has been hampered by prosecutors in Jersey.

According to Harper, this is making the victims lose faith in the justice system; and it is making it harder to get witnesses to come forward because of fears that alleged perpetrators will not be put on trial.

Mr Harper claims that the island’s Attorney-General, William Bailhache, and his office are held in 'total contempt' by victims of child abuse after repeatedly failing to bring offenders to justice.

Mr Harper’s memo claims suspects are being freed without charge on apparently spurious grounds.

According to Harper: "This is illustrated by a briefing I have had from the NSPCC counsellor working alongside us. He has received a text message from a victim (which he has shown to me) to say ‘It is a joke. Another two walk away. No wonder no one will come forward’. "

Philip Sinel, lawyer for the Jersey Care Leavers’ Association, told prosecutors that crucial evidence was being withheld because victims did not trust the authorities. "My clients and others know far more than has been given to the police already," Mr Sinel said.

Mr Harper’s report discloses that William Bailhache, the Attorney-General, appointed a prosecution barrister, Simon Thomas, to the police inquiry.

Police claim that Mr Thomas advised them that a 70-year-old man and his wife, 69, believed to have been former foster parents, could be arrested and charged with grave and criminal assault.

The report states that Mr Thomas denied having given such advice.

They were taken into custody on June 24 but at 5pm Mr Thomas told detectives he had revised his view, citing as reasons that the wife was unwell, and that the couple’s children said their parents were 'good people'.

According to Harper, in another child abuse case, the police suffered delays after sending a file to Mr Thomas about Jane and Alan Maguire, who had run a care home. A previous prosecution against the Maguires for assault was dropped for lack of evidence in 1998 by Michael Birt, QC, then the Jersey Attorney-General.

Mr Birt is now the second most powerful judge as Deputy Bailiff.

The Maguires live in France and no extradition has been sought.

Sir Philip Bailhache, Bailiff, is head of Jersey's judiciary. He made a speech saying that no bodies had been found. As chairman of parliament he switched off a microphone when a senator tried to apologise for Jersey’s child abuse. He is the Attorney-General’s brother.

William Bailhache, QC, the Attorney-General, decides prosecutions and is legal adviser to the Jersey Government, in whose care the children had been placed. He was a partner in the law firm that represented alleged victims of Jane and Alan Maguire, who ran a care home. None of the clients received compensation.

Michael Birt, QC, Deputy Bailiff, was the Attorney-General who discontinued prosecution against the Maguires.

BBC news, on 9 August 2008, reminded us of some of the facts of the Jersey case.

Jersey 'victims' demand answers

About 100 people have alleged abuse between the early 1960s and 1986.

Jersey Police searched the former children's home called Haut de la Garenne and found what they believe is a skull fragment.

The police have found 65 milk teeth and more than 100 bone fragments at the home.

Sky News, on 14 August 2008, refers to how the victims in the Jersey child abuse case feel let down.

Jersey Probe: 'Victims Let Down'

Former residents spoke of rape, drugging and beatings at the hands of their carers.

Victims claim that they tried to come forward in the past but that their accusations were ignored.

The Telegraph, on 9 August 2008, refers to an 'old boy network' obstructing the police.

Jersey abuse case: 'Old boy network' is obstructing police .

Deputy Chief Officer Lenny Harper refers to people who have engaged in a "day by day attack" on the inquiry team and the alleged victims of abuse.

Mr Harper told the Telegraph: "I can quite clearly say that the investigation is being held up. There are people on the island who just don't want us going down the route of this inquiry."

Mr Harper gave details of why he is so convinced that someone deliberately concealed the bones and teeth of five children, perhaps after murdering them.

Mr Harper says that because some of the 100 bone fragments had been cut, and because the 65 milk teeth found at the home had roots on them, meaning they did not come out naturally, children were either murdered or their bodies were illegally concealed.

Police have 80 names of people suspected of physical and sexual abuse at Haut de la Garenne.

Harper said: "We are walking through treacle at the moment. One file has been with the Attorney General's office since April 29 and it's still showing no signs of moving at the moment.

Harper said of the bones: "They had been taken from one part of the building to another and put on top of the hard, compact, undisturbed original floor of the cellars. They had been spread about and covered with a thin layer of topsoil. Why would someone do that unless there was a deliberate attempt to conceal them?"

Mr Harper said tests on soot found with the bones showed they had been burned in a furnace in another part of the building, while archaeological evidence suggested they had been concealed in the 1960s or 70s.
