Muslims, minorities and the state in Indonesia Indonesian Islam will remain moderate and tolerant by and large, but problems and challenges will continue to exist. The future of Indonesia depends on the ways in which the government and various Muslim groups actually act in public life. While violence, discrimination, and grievances are still felt among the minorities, especially non-Muslims, the Muslim majority continue maintaining the tolerant, moderate character of the country. A small number of hard-liners and terrorists will be disproportionately influential, but the tolerant, moderate majority and the government will not be silent.

Riau may become a desert in 40 years Deforestation may turn the resource-rich province of Riau into a desert in 40 years unless preventive measures are taken, the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) said. The province's Spatial Layout Plan (RTRWP) up to 2015 includes converting protected forests and water catchment areas into timber estates, which will likely turn Riau into a vast barren land. The situation is worsened by illegal logging and the rapid switch to mono-cultivation where land is cleared to grow only one type of cash crop, the WWF revealed.

Seasoned with the subtle aromatics found only on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, it became essential to find out the root of these fine-flavored leaves.

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.
