Indonesia: Islamist group plans church bombing on Good Friday

April 30, 2011


The renewed concerns about Negara Islam Indonesia (NII), or Indonesian Islamic State, follow the disruption last week of a plot to explode a 150-kilogram bomb near a Jakarta church during Good Friday services.

Pepi Fernando, the alleged mastermind of the plot, is a former NII member, and up to six of the suspected members of his cell were from a prestigious state-run Islamic university where NII is thought to have engaged in an aggressive recruitment campaign.

Confrontation with non-believers? How rude! They clearly haven’t been listening to the accommodationists.
