- Note - The same type of behavior depicted
below occurs throughout 'human' history, often generated by 'religion'
and or 'politics.' It occurs from Bosnia to the Bible and is found in
ancient accounts of 'human' history. WWII was marked by the Holocaust;
the deaths of from 20-40 million people; the advancing Soviet 'Army' raped
and pillaged it's way through the whole of Eastern Europe, slaughtering
countless civilians and nailing entire families to their doors. As a society,
most Americans do not know war or suffering or butchery. "Man's inhumanity
to man" knows no boundaries. The following article is horrendous.
Remember...it could happen here.

- Dear friends,
- Here I submit a victim's account of being
raped during the May riots here in Jakarta. Reference to Huaran Bulletin
Board June 12, 1998.
- The purpose is to request your prayers
for hundreds of similar victims.
- "My name is Vivian, and I am 18
years old. I have a little sister and brother. As a family we live in what
is supposed to be a "secure" apartment.
- At 9.15 am, May 14th, 1998 a huge crowd
had gathered around our apartment. They screamed, "Let's butcher the
Chinese!", "Let's eat pigs!", "Let's have a party!"
We live of the 7th floor and we got a call from a family on the 3rd floor
saying that the crowd had reached the 2nd floor. They even chased some
occupants upstairs. We were all very frightened. In our fright we prayed
and left everything in God's hands.
- Afterward we left our room and went upstairs
to the top floor, as it was impossible to go downstairs and escape. We
got to the 15th floor and stayed with some friends. Not long afterwards
we were surprised because some of the crowd coming out of the elevators
right before we entered the room. We hurried into the room and locked the
door tightly. At that time we heard them knock at the other rooms loudly
and there were some screams from women and girls. Our room was filled with
- We realized that they would come to us.
So we spread throughout the room hiding in the corners.We could hear girls
of 10 to 12 years old screaming, "Mommy, ...mommy...mom...mom...it
hurts" That time I didn't know that these little girls were being
raped. After about half an hour the noise diminished and we had some guts
to go out and check. It was indescribable. A lot, some of them youg girls,
were lying on the floor. "Oh my God, what has happened?" Seeing
all of this we screemed and my little sister Fenny, screamed histerically
and hugged her father.
- Tears started coming down from my eyes.
With our friends, a newly-wed couple, we started going downstairs. Reaching
the 10th floor, we heard a scream for help. The scream was very clear and
we decided to go down and see. But as we turned we saw a lot of people.
I saw a woman in her 20s being raped by 4 men. She tried to fight back
but she was held down tightly.
- Realizing the danger we ran as hard as
we could. But unfortunately the mob caught Fenny. We tried to rescue her,
but could not do anything. There were about 60 of them. They tied us up
with ripped sheets, myself, my father, my mother Fenny, Donny, Uncle Dodi
and my Aunt Vera. They led us to a room. Unle Dodi asked what they wanted,
but they did not reply.
- They looked evil and savage. One of them
grabbed Fenny roughly and dragged her to a sofa. At that time I knew she
was in great danger. I screamed loudly but one of the mob slapped me in
my face. My father who also screamed was hit with a piece of wood and he
fainted. My mother has fainted when Fenny was dragged to the sofa. I culd
only pray and pray that disaster would not befall us.
- Uncle Dodi kept trying to stop them by
offering money. His efforts were fruitless. And in the end 5 people raped
Fenny. Before beginning with the raping they always said "Allahu Akbar"
(an islamic phrase in arabic meaning "God is great". They were
ferocius and brutal.
- Not long afterward, around 9 men came
to the room and dragged me. I also saw them forcing and dragging my Aunt
Vera. But at that time I passed out and everything went blank. I became
conscious at around 5 or 6 pm. My head hurted and I realized I had no clothing
on my body. I cried and realized my family was still there. My father was
hugging my mother and little bother Doni. I also saw uncle Dodi lying on
the floor and Aunt Vera was crying over his body. I felt so weak and fainted
- The next day I was in the Pluit hospital.
My father and mother were beside me. With all the pains on my body I asked,
"Mom, why Fenny. Mom?" I felt a stinging pain as I said these
words. My cheeks were swollen. My mother cried again and couldn't speak
any words, while my father, holding back his tears, managed to smile at
me. After 4 days in treatment, my condition has improved. With a sad look,
my father told me then what had happened. After I fainted 7 people raped
me. At that time my father still couldn't see well after beling hit with
a piece of wood. They raped me repeatedly. Then my father said "Vivian,
Fenny is gone..."
- I was confused and cried out, "Why
Dad?" My father couldn't answer. He told me to rest and went out of
the room. I cried over and over again, feeling that my life had no meaning
any more. A week ago, after I was released from the hospital I was told
everything that had happend.
- When Fenny was raped she kept on fighting
and so she was repeatedly slapped by her rapists. The last time she fought
Fenny spitted on one of them. Offended, the man grabbed a knife and stabbed
Fenny's stomach over and over again. Finally she died with blood over her
- My father told me that uncle Dodi had
the same fate watched by aunt Vera who was also raped. "God...why
should all of this happen? Where are you God? Are you still alive?"
My aunt Vera now stays with her parents. She is in shock. Her face is blank
and refuses to eat. Almost every hour my mother and I cry over all these
happenings. I can never forget. These mobs of people are uncivilized monsters."
- Additional comments from Bill Hekman:
- This is one of many victims. Hundreds
of women and children were raped, mutilated and killed by muslim mobs.
Some had their vaginas ripped apart, their bodies cut into pieces. Over
5000 of the Chinese Indonesian's shops were looted and burned down. A few
days ago anther 63 shops were burned in Tegal, Central Java. The city of
Solo is burned down. There is no protection and no justice in this country
any more. Yesterday I was in the Kelapa Gading area and that area was spared
from destruction. The police and military had guarded all the entry roads.
The people there had collected large sums of money from door to door and
paid for their protection. A similar situation took place in the Pondok
Indah area. For the people who cannot pay millions to the armed forces
there is no protection. Right now the hunderds of thousands of thugs, robbers,
rapist, and killers live all around us. They are our neighbors. There is
no punishment for the criminals and no justice for the victims. Yet, all
Indonesians call themselves believers in God almighty. What a hipocracy.
Shouting "God is great" when raping women and children is a blasphemy
against a Holy God.
- Pray that God will annoint His preachers
and missionaries throughout this nation with the power of the Holy Spirit
to preach the message of repentance. God's word in 2 Chronicles 7:14 needs
to be proclaimed boldly. There is no room for preachers filled with fear
who think of evacuation and other selfish plans. Pray for Revival in all
our churches. Some Christians are putting signs on their shops "Owned
by Muslim". May God forgive them. Healing of this nation filled with
crime and unjustice is bringing God's judgement and punishment. Healing
and Salvation can only come with a nasional repentance at all levels in
the government, armed forces and society. Then we need to share the Gospel
of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ is the One and Only Savior. No one will
ever receive forgiveness and see heaven except through God's appointed
Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for standing with us now. God
