Indonesian café owner sparks outrage after opening Nazi-themed restaurant complete with waiters dressed as SS officers

Indonesia is a Muslim country and "Mein Kampf" (Hitler's book) is a big seller in Muslim countries so this should not be a surprise

A restaurant owner in Indonesia whose Nazi-themed cafe is covered with Hitler memorabilia and staffed by waiters in Waffen-SS military uniforms is to be questioned by authorities.

Soldatenkaffee in the West Java provincial capital of Bandung has sparked outrage amongst tourists and locals for its red wall of Nazi-related memorabilia, including a large flag with swastika and a giant picture of Adolf Hitler.

Despite being open since April 2011, a recent article about its German fascist theme in a local English-language newspaper has prompted angry criticisms on social networking sites.

Now the deputy mayor of the popular tourist town has written to cafe owner Henry Mulyana summoning him to discuss his motives for opening the cafe and whether his objective was to incite racial hatred.

Mr Mulyana says he simply intended to attract business to his restaurant, and denies wanting to breed hatred.

He said: 'I'm just a businessman, not a politician.  'I have a right to design my restaurant with anything that attracts people to come. I'm sure that I'm not violating any laws.'


If he were American, SCOTUS would probably judge the restaurateur as being within his rights

What makes me wonder is, Is it working? If so, that's worrisome.

Apparently, there must be a Jew in the neighborhood, else who would complain?

This love of the Nazis goes back to WWII. The Nazis promised the Muslims that if they helped them defeat the British and French that they would get all their land back. My father told a story that during the war, one of the ships he was on was supposed to carry troops for D-Day. Their orders were changed and the bunks cut out. Strong boxes were then welded to the ship hold's floor and then covered with grain. They took the boxes to Saudi Arabia. He said they were filled with gold to buy the Saudi's allegiance. Can prove his story but it's interesting

The muslims were an unofficial supporter of hitler. They have the same goals, the extermination of all they see as "inferior!"

Might have been fun to watch the nazis and muslims go at it if hitler had won.

We would have been better off keeping the Nazi's instead of the Jews. At least the Nazi's were loyal to something other than money.

There is a saying 'you are judged by the company you keep'.
This site - although dedicated to the noblest of aims - attracts some rather unpleasant company sometimes.

Ok, politics aside (and I realize that with an emotional topic like Nazis, that's almost impossible), you have to admit that some of the Nazis artwork is aesthetically pleasing. I'm not going to paper my walls with it, mind you, as I abhor every aspect of the regime. However, I do actually like the use of red and black in the artwork, and some of the stylized birds of prey and other symbols.
