Indonesian Muslims back violent jihad: poll

Sunday, Oct 15, 2006
JAKARTA (Reuters) - Around one in 10 Indonesian Muslims support jihad and justify bomb attacks on Indonesia's tourist island of Bali as defending the faith, a survey released on Sunday showed.

Indonesia is the world's fourth most populous country, with 220 million people, 85 percent of whom follow Islam, giving the Asian archipelago the largest Muslim population of any nation in the world.

"Jihad that has been understood partially and practiced with violence is justified by around one in 10 Indonesian Muslims," the Indonesian Survey Institute said in a statement.

"They approved the bombings conducted ... in Bali with the excuse of defending Islam," it added, saying the percentage of such support "is very significant."

While the vast majority of Indonesia's Muslims are relatively moderate, there has been an increasingly vocal militant minority and political pressure for more laws that are in line with hardline Muslim teachings.

The poll surveyed a random sample of 1,092 Muslim men and women.

Bombings in Bali in October 2002 blamed on the militant Southeast Asian Jemaah Islamiah network killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists. Suicide blasts in Bali a year ago killed 20.

The survey found one in five Indonesian Muslims more generally supported the aims of Jemaah Islamiah -- an armed movement backing the creation of an Islamic superstate linking Muslim Indonesia and Malaysia, and Muslim areas in the Philippines and Thailand.

In the past, it has cooperated closely with al Qaeda's global anti-Western campaign, but in recent years many in Jemaah Islamiah have focused more on the regional struggle.

Indonesia has had a major attack against high profile Western-linked targets each year from 2002 through 2005. Authorities tied all the attacks to elements of Jemaah Islamiah.

Indonesia is not officially an Islamic state.

One of the interesting things about Yahoo! News these days (which is where I happened upon this story) is that they have a "discuss" link/button at the bottom of each story, much like a blog where average citizens respond to stories.
Anyway here's a sampling of some of the more mild responses -- I thought it would be too strong to use any of the thousands of really anti-PC responses. link: http://news.yahoo.com/fc/world/indonesia

That is interesting information... Over here, 9 out of 10 support killing all Indonesian muslims... Nice symmetry there.

Indonesia is a very unruly place with a largely illiterate population where minority races are marginalised, yet the bastards deny it. It's the same with Malaysia.

220000000 x 85% x 10% = 1870000 bin Ladens.

By THOMAS WAGNER, Associated Press Writer Sun Oct 15, 10:44 AM ET

LONDON - A British government minister joined an increasingly bitter debate about the rights of Muslim women to veil their faces, saying a teaching assistant should be fired for insisting on wearing one in school.

Phil Woolas, the government's Race and Faith minister, was quoted by the Sunday Mirror newspaper as demanding that Aishah Azmi, a Muslim teaching assistant, be fired for refusing to remove her veil at work.

"She should be sacked. She has put herself in a position where she can't do her job," Woolas said.

Yes, Ruby, I just read it, also some good comments from readers on that one.

Jokie, I think you are joking again. But anyway you and all Women need to stick together and struggle against that oppression by muzzie men.

And on the same story, of course JP missed the newsworthy part.... again and put the part about that survey where 20 million Indonesians support violence and bali bombings waayyyyy down in the 15th paragraph. Do they really stress about muzzie readers?? The stats I've seen they don't even have more than a couple hundred muzzie readers --TOTAL!!
