New Incarnation of Jamaah Islamiyah
How can the authorities be so sure they are linked to the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) terrorist group network? Do these arrests not further confirm that the Jokowi regime is suppressing Islamic activists who oppose him?
The arrest of three terrorist suspects in Bekasi on 16 November not only shocked the public, but also raised a number of questions about the dynamics of terrorism in Indonesia.
The three terrorist suspects who "shocked" the public are ZA, a member of the Fatwa Commission of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI); FAO, a political party founder who President Jokowi once received at the Palace; and AA, an ustadz (Islamic teacher), who actively preached in the community.
