    It's a lot more than Jihad watch although Jihad watch compiles realtime acts and it's good to see the acts happening worldwide in real time. I will say that yes, so far she has not been disfigured. However, Indonesia hides from itself but the world is watching the radicalization of Indonesia grow, so far internally, but the proof of the attack on the religious minorities is there.

    TERRORISM IN INDONESIA : Role of the Religious Organisations -- South Asia Analysis Group

    So far the more homegrown radical organizations in Indonesia haven't been supplanted by their outside extremist brethren as is evidenced in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Algeria, Egypt, Yemen, etc. but those groups are there and gaining strength from Suharto's seeming approval and support.

    I think it's a good idea to keep a realtime eye out for the flow of extremism. You keep an eye on the other side and we can both hope that this lady you posted doesn't get done in like the ones I posted.

    "gaining strength from Suharto's seeming approval and support"?
    That is hard to believe, since Suharto Died in 2008

    The approval is still there. His control is clear. His policies still are in play.

    The Suharto Legacy - As He Lay Dying :: JapanFocus

    And don't forget the policies that still approve and allow the terrorist enclaves.

    This is fascinating.

    The Muslim Madonna!

    She is a beautiful woman, and, perhaps, presages a new direction for Muslims....maybe...a bit....


    But it is Indonesia....they've had a woman ruler.
