Attorney General: 'Amrozi and friends won't make it until Lebaran' The Attorney General will order the execution of the people convicted for the Bali Bomb attacks in October 2002 before the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Outside that, it will also interfere with the psychological mind of the people," said Attorney General Hendarman Supandji during a press meeting in the Attorney General's main building at Jalan Sultan Hasanuddin in Jakarta earlier today.

Wilders endangers his fellow countrymen all over the world Many are waiting for the moment - unfortunately a big part of the people is only waiting for it for negative reasons - the short move made by Dutch politician Geert Wilders about the Koran, the holy book for Muslims. He wants to show the world that Islam is a religion of violence and that 'their book' - the Koran indeed - is a source of fascism in the religion. That is the very short story and I'm sure other aspects of Islam will be highlighted as well. It is expected that that won't be too positive as well, which is causing that negative feeling. Such a kind of straight-forwarded attack on Islam - or any other religion for that matter - will provoke strong reactions and these will not be limited to the area that we know as The Netherlands.

Golkar rejects its old image Growing resentment against calls to become loyalists of former president Soeharto has led the former dominant party, Golkar, to exercise a good measure of damage control in its campaigns by removing itself from symbols of the past regime. Soeharto was the main patron of Golkar and calls from a political party set up by his former aide, R. Hartono, for people to again become the second president's loyalists has provoked indignant cries of rejection. Hartono made the call when campaigning for his Concern for the Nation Functional Party (PPKB) in Soeharto's hometown of Yogyakarta, just as campaigners for Golkar said that the past years have been better than the current "reform" period.
