A deserted Kuta in November I have to admit, it is somewhere far outside any holiday season in the middle of November, maybe that will help create the almost deserted Kuta around this time of year. It was a short trip of about one hour from the beating cultural and religious heart of Bali, Ubud. With a virtually blue sky I left the spiritual village on a rented Mio (scooter), heading for the hot lowlands and crowds of Southern Bali. That crowd was a relative thing here, but seen from Ubud almost everything in the outside world looks crowded.

Executions are the new hype in Indonesia Two members from one family, mother Sumiarsih (59) and son Sugeng (43), were executed earlier this month after they had been on death row for an astonishing twenty years. They were sentenced to death in the 1980's over a murder on five members of their own family out of vengeance. After twenty years in prison, they names - and their story - reappeared in the news once again. The end of their story was clear for almost twenty years already, but it just did never materialize. Probably someone did not like cleaning his office, so these two death row candidates were only executed by firing squad earlier this month.

Are hard-liners deviants or true believers? Some of the moderate and liberal Muslims (I consider myself as part of this group) often charge that hard-liners, jihadists, terrorists and suicide bombers are not true believers. The jihadist and terrorists are more aptly called deviant Muslims, people with a fallacious understanding of Islam. We also blame their activities as tarnishing the name of Islam and harming its reputation before the hallmark of modern civilization. Their interpretation of Islam is also said to be destroying the religion's fundamental and truest mission. This is what we have to say about them.
