Indonesia's silence on Timor Leste crisis For two months Timor Leste has gone through its worst crisis since its independence. Much of the country's trade and economy depend on us. Much of the geo-political space in which it has to pursue its foreign policy, and to achieve stability and justice, depends on us. They use our language, even smoke the same kretek cigarettes as we do. And, in the most fundamental sense, they had suffered under "our" harsh occupation. Yet, with a few exceptions, many prefer to remain silent, ignoring their sorry plight. Why?

What intrigues me about the 'old Indonesia' is the Dutch part. Maybe because I'm Dutch myself, but mainly because there is fairly little I know about it actually. If I think about how little information I got in school over the years I actually was in school. I wrote about this earlier, and about the facts that the Dutch maybe aren't proud of what they did in the Far East. But now the other side, there is no denying that the Dutch actually have been in Indonesia if it only were for that they left behind in buildings only.
