Indonesia; a country without Playboy and porn In between breakfast and lunch yesterday, Indonesian lawmakers gave their support for a law that is officially named 'Electronic Information and Transaction Law'. This indirect anti-porn legislation will be effective two days from now. Because of the quick pace this new monster against (press-)freedom was pushed ahead, there is little attention for it in mainstream Indonesian media. It almost looks like something that happens every day here, but it is completely absurd that a law that has been approved yesterday will become active in a matter of days, especially a law that has as many implications as this one. In theory that is.

What if I was a terrorist Just over one week ago it all happened. At walking distance one person was killed, some were arrested and after that the party was over as quick as it started. It wasn't a criminal shootout and n drugs were found as well. It was nothing more than busting some terrorism-suspects by an anti-terror squad from the Indonesian police (Densus 88); they were simply overwhelmed in their hide-out. The one that tried to flea, was directly given some bullets and didn't survive the event. Seven others were arrested. In fact that could be the entire story, but it was just not to happen that way. It proved to be the start of what currently looks like a terror cell uncovered. Within two weeks after the first shooting several more police actions were held. Police is scarce with giving information, but in recent days is became clear that most likely a part of the Southeast Asian terror network Jemaah Islamiyah has been found.

A glimpse into minds of terrorists The bombs should be small and placed in day packs, making them harder to detect. The bombers should dress like tourists. They should not bother targeting hotels because security is too tight. Instead they should consider restaurants, discos and theaters.

Free election marks crossroads for Indonesia Six years into the uncertainties of multiparty democracy, Indonesians are electing a new legislature Monday after a campaign shadowed by nostalgia for two former authoritarian rulers -- one dead, the other disgraced. President Megawati Sukarnoputri's government is struggling with economic weakness, secessionist rebellions and the emergence of Muslim terrorists. But there is little debate on economic policy or Muslim extremism, critical though these issues are to this sprawling country of 210 million people scattered across 17,000 islands.

Indonesia has the tools to beat radical Islam The flames of Islamic fundamentalism are not confined to the Middle East and Central Asia.

The lively tinkle of the grand piano, the sound of the bass, and the beat of the drums by the Bill Heid Trio generated a warm atmosphere at the official residence of the Ambassador of the United States of America, Ralph L. Boyce, on Jalan Taman Suropati, Jakarta, on September 19. The performance of the famous jazz group—which often graces the stage of the John F. Kennedy Center, a prestigious cultural showplace in Washington—mesmerized the American diplomats. They were carried away by the beat of the music, tapped their feet, and sipped champagne. Boyce, no mean drummer and guitarist himself, was all smiles as he jammed with the band.
