印尼”排華”迷思解析 (1)

最近又看到文章說住在加里曼丹島的Dayak”野蠻人”發狂,因而想提供一些背景來脈落化以及人性化這樣的事件。而這個事件實際上跟排華沒什麼關係。 本文章改自之前的文章: 作者: withoutu (疑陷生機) 站內: Gossiping 標題: Re: 印尼再次爆發排華騷亂 數千人焚燒華人廟宇住宅 時間: Tue Dec 11 10:02:58 2007 幾點補充說明: Kalimantan 是全印尼發生暴動最頻繁的地方,原因也最為複雜,跟98年以後民主化選舉競爭激烈各地發生地方政府為搶奪選票造成的激烈衝突有關,但不限於此。上述這種暴動發生在98-03之間,大多已落幕,唯有Kalimantan是從蘇哈托時期一路發生暴動 這與當地原住民族被邊緣化以及經濟地位節節衰退有很大的關係。因為Kalimantan如此特殊,所以我先從其他比較普遍的角度來談”排華”。

人權與新東方主義

在西方媒體裡面極為偏頗的伊斯蘭印象中,伊斯蘭為劃歸為父權的、落後的、非理性的文化。美國卻大方地為自身利益出手發動戰爭。美國的暴力不是只有只有民主暴力、白人暴力、性別暴力、宗教狂熱而已。反美情緒一方面刻劃著美國極度流行的自私的個人主義;一方面又驚詫於美國人的宗教狂熱與新保守主義。 評論者可能急於去檢討在伊斯蘭世界中的不公義,認為是古老詛咒一般地壓制在其文化上。而在西方世界的不公義,則只是「文明世界」中不完美的部份。貧富差距已紮實地臣服於現代資本主義的邏輯中︰貧者應追求向上流動,而非發動階級鬥爭。講白一點︰你窮是你家的事情。在殖民時代已經逐漸被遺忘的今日,有多少人在乎去提及西方的發展是建立在非西方世界的剝削之上。也許如此埋怨歷史的發展是無濟於事。但無論如何,歷史並沒有終結。意識形態也不只存在於美國的敵人–二十年前是共產主義,現在轉移到伊斯蘭身上。美國有自己的意識形態。 圖為伊斯蘭女性主義的標誌。
