Tuesday, January 6, 2009 4:29 AM MUI urges Muslims to boycott U.S. products The Jakarta Post | Tue, 12/30/2008 10:30 PM | National The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) has urged all Indonesian Muslims to boycott U.S.-made products, to push president-elect Barrack Obama to halt the Israeli attacks on Gaza. Boycotting U.S. products was a way for Indonesia to pressure the United States to stop conflicts between Israel and Palestine's Hamas group, MUI fatwa commission chairman Ma'ruf Amin said Tuesday . "Israel ... will only be afraid of the U.S., so all Muslims must urge Obama to intervene and overcome the conflict," Ma'ruf said. The MUI hoped Obama would not follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, George W. Bush, who had failed to adopt a neutral stance in the Israeli-Palestinian conflicts, he said.

Look at how hamas lovingly uses American's Disney's Mickey Mouse to further its propaganda! http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=lZEGsnWZKh8 But should MUI insist on it, they can ban the use of Google, Yahoo, Wikipedia, Microsoft Windows and Office, some Linux distros like Red Hat, Phothoshop, Flash, Youtube and Firefox/Safari/IE. Also stop printing using HP printers, taking digital pictures and store them in SanDisk SD cards. And just to top it off, please disconnect from the Internet as most ISPs in Indonesia are still using Cisco! Perhaps MUI should stop and think how incompetent and dependent their country is on others. It hurts to think so. And yes, you're still dependent on America! Ignorant is a bliss! But make it your duty that you shouldn't further your ignorant to your people.
