FPI threatens to topple Yudhoyono
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The Islam Defenders Front (FPI) warns it will overthrow President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono from government if he dares disband any mass organization, including FPI.

“Yudhoyono will become like Ben Ali of Tunisia. Indonesia will be like Egypt. We will topple SBY because he has diverted [attention from] the [Ahmadiyah] issue,” FPI militia commander Munarman told over the phone on Thursday.

Munarman made the statement in response to Yudhoyono’s calls for the disbanding of any violent mass organizations following barbaric attack on a Ahmadiyah congregation in Cikeusik, Banten, which led to the death of three of its members.

He said that Yudhoyono had made a mistake because the incident, as well as the burning of three churches in Temanggung, Central Java, on Tuesday, had not involved any mass organizations.

Munarman, a former chairman of the Indonesian Legal Aid Foundation, said the FPI would make every effort to prevent the government from disbanding any mass organizations.
