Human rights watch urges Indonesian govt to say sorry – Channel NewsAsia

JAKARTA, Indonesia: Efforts at national reconciliation are underway in Indonesia after a state-sponsored inquiry indicated gross human rights abuse and crimes against humanity during the 1965-66 government-led anti-communist purge.

An estimated half a million Indonesians were killed and a million others were said to have been jailed and tortured in the aftermath of an attempt to overthrow President Sukarno in September 1965.

Indonesia’s National Commission on Human Rights which carried out the inquiry has urged the government to offer a formal apology and compensation to the victims.

Dancing With Palestinians

I grew up in Israel and served as an IDF officer. It took me years to realize that we had been brought up on lies, myths and propaganda and that Palestinians are no different from native Americans, blacks in S. Africa and other indigenous populations who were abused and dispossessed by European colonialism. Demolishing the Zionist myths and propaganda is the first step towards de-constructing the exclusionary colonial state and achieving historic justice and lasting peace.
