Unlike the Suharto era, Indonesia now has quite radical Islamic groups operating in the open. Among them, the Islamic Defenders Front (Front Pembela Islam, FPI) is infamous for unleashing paramilitary gangs on 'iniquitous' nightspots. The Sunni Communication Forum (Forum Komunikasi Ahlusunnah Wal Jamaah, FKAWJ) fights for Muslims in Maluku. The Liberation Party (Hizbut Tahrir) is a branch of the Middle Eastern movement of the same name. It calls for the Indonesian nation-state to be abolished and replaced by the classic model of an Islamic state, the caliphate. Both FKAWJ and Hizbut Tahrir bluntly reject democratic models as a Western invention, incompatible with Islam. The campus-based Hizbut Tahrir shows restraint in its actions, but the other two frequently operate in a grey area of the law (see accompanying article).

A new World Bank report says that as many as 120 million Indonesians are either living in abject poverty or are staring poverty in the face. But does any one really care? You would be forgiven for thinking that the nation's political elite are either ignorant or simply cannot be bothered with the issue. Poverty was hardly mentioned in the recently concluded meeting of the People's Consultative Assembly.

The terrorist attacks in the United States last week has provided a new dimension to the political relationship between the West, particularly the U.S., and the signs of a reemergence of global political Islam in the post-Cold War era. This era has enabled the emergence of culture and religion as a new mainstream in global interactions. Religion is even seen to pose a serious threat to international relations. The revival of political Islam has become a significant ideological force in the third world, particularly in the Muslim world.

Strange exit tax Indonesians and foreigners with a KITAS (temporary stay)_ permit who want to travel abroad are subject to an "exit levy" of one million rupiah (US$111). Although there are almost no countries on this planet that require their residents to comply with such a strange regulation, Indonesia keeps on taxing its traveling residents. Even stranger is the fact that when I finished my employment contract and went to Soekarno-Hatta airport with a (costly) "exit permit only" (EPO) stamped in my passport, I still had to pay this exit tax.

The presidential palace complex has been witness to momentous changes in the country's history, and the changing of the guard of the highest powers in the land. But while the powers that be may come and go, it seems that some "residents" stay put no matter what. This is the 78th article in our series on Old Batavia. If Dutchman J.A. van Braam, the first owner of what is today the present presidential palace complex, were still alive, he could see that his former home is now an abode for supernatural creatures.

Members of the Penan tribe of northeastern Borneo know that Batu Lawi, a 2,000-m sheer limestone pinnacle, is a demon-haunted place to be avoided at all costs.

As he told friends, he spent 24 hours hanging from a rope, unable to reach the rock face. Only a desperate swing brought him within grabbing distance of the rock.

Nothing nurtures confidence after a change in government more than the rapid installation of a cabinet filled with seasoned professionals. That was supposed to happen within a few days of President Megawati Sukarnoputri's inauguration on July 23. It didn't happen. Then she was to finalize the list with freshly chosen vice president Hamzah Haz on July 30. No such luck. Instead, there has been relentless negotiation between officials of the big parties as Megawati was confronted by a reality of Indonesian politics cabinet-making as a rush for the spoils.

Megawati Sukarnoputri was born to power. But in order to wield it for the benefit of Indonesia, she will have to learn to work with, and control, the powerbrokers in parliament and the military. Can she do it? On a day when most business executives in Jakarta were chasing rumors about the possible shape of President Megawati Sukarnoputri's cabinet, investment banker Tim Gray was past caring. Let others worry whether her government will prove any more stable than that of her impeached predecessor, Abdurrahman Wahid. Gray is leaving town. "The type of deals I do, the movement of capital into this market, those sources of capital have dried up," he says. After more than 10 years in Jakarta, he left his job as president of Development Capital, a privately held investment bank, and headed to Dubai. It's a departure with regrets, says the American-born banker. But even with Megawati as president, there's no sense staying. "They've dug themselves a deep hole. To dig themselves out is going to take years."

Breaking in a new boss is always a complicated task. That's especially the case at the Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency, responsible for almost $50 billion in corporate assets and bad debts surrendered to the government during Asia's economic crisis. You'd think IBRA staffers would have a neat routine in place by now, having greeted six new bosses since the agency was formed in 1998 two in the past eight months. But it's always a pain. "People are demoralized," said one insider. This time round Edwin Gerungan, a career banker known for his honesty, was replaced by I Putu Ary Suta, a former head of the capital markets regulatory board.

Budi Sadikin, a clean-cut, affable young executive, is smiling broadly. And for good reason. As head of consumer banking in Indonesia for ABN AMRO Bank, the 37-year-old has watched deposits at the Dutch bank's 15 branches triple in value in just three years to $800 million at the end of 2000. Until 1998, ABN AMRO, which has been doing business in Indonesia for 175 years, did not even have a consumer-banking unit. Now Sadikin oversees a 200-strong team whose job it is to coax more affluent Indonesians to deposit their money in a foreign bank.

Long-simmering tensions between indigenous Dayaks and immigrant Madurese suddenly exploded in the town of Sampit, Central Kalimantan, in the middle of February 2001. Within days, isolated killings perpetrated by both sides had developed into a one-sided massacre of Madurese by enraged Dayaks. In the following weeks the killings spread to other areas in the province and by early April almost the entire Madurese population had fled the province. The massacre of about 500 and possibly many more - Madurese by Dayaks and the flight of virtually the entire Madurese community closely resembled two similar events in the Sambas district in the northern part of West Kalimantan in 1996-7 and in 1999 and highlighted the danger of violence spreading to West and East Kalimantan.

Every country has its myths, legends and folklore that embellish cultures and in many instances draw people together towards a mutual experience and understanding of life's lessons. Indonesia, it seems, has more than its fair share of these intriguing tales. All parts of the country, large or small, urban or rural, near or far, have tales often from times long past that form part of the culture. Some of these tales are more fanciful than others, featuring outlandish escapades and creatures from fantasy worlds but most, (if not all), have some message or lesson that is as relevant to our modern world as it was when the stories first occurred or were first invented.

Susilo replaced in hasty reshuffle President Abdurrahman Wahid added further suspense to the unfolding political drama by catching everyone by surprise on Friday with his announcement of a Cabinet reshuffle which included the replacement of his top political and security minister.

Tension mounts in Indonesia In recent weeks thousands of Wahid's supporters particularly in his home province of East Java have formed paramilitary squads. They have announced plans to come to the capital before the parliament votes on Wahid's fate at the end of this month. A difficult time awaits him. But what worries international observers is the prospects of instability and violence in the country. Indonesian president Abdurrahman Wahid, currently embroiled in a crisis to remain in the office, has warned that a "nationwide rebellion" would erupt if the parliament attempts to impeach him on corruption charges. He said more than 400,000 people from across the main island of Java and southern end of Sumatra were ready to come into the capital to protest against moves to oust him from presidency.

Pemuteran village, Gerokgak subdistrict, Buleleng, Bali, is gaining fame as a haven for tourists with a deep love for meditation and the sea as well as a site for a captive breeding program of three rare turtle species. Until the 1980s, many turtles were laying eggs in the sands of Bali's beaches. Of the world's six turtle species, five have their home in Bali. Unfortunately, turtle hunting has not only left the island's turtles nearly extinct but has also discouraged them from ever visiting Bali's beaches any more.

Dolar, dolar, dolar !!! - I can imagine very well, the shouting of traders in Rupiah and 'Dolar Amerika Serikat', the US Greenback. Not in the JSX, where 16 people got killed last year, but just in the streets, at markets downtown Jakarta and far outside. People who can afford to buy foreign money actually will, those who cant, are already too late. The Rupiah tipped 11,500 to the US$ before BI(1 intervened, and two days after we are seeing levels around and just below the 10,000 mark. That's still dramatically below levels that were targeted by the Indonesian government for the economical year 2001, which lasts to 31 december 2001.
