Indonesia: Winning the War on Terror

Time Magazine Examines Why the Indonesian Approach to Terrorism May be a Model Worth Imitating.

The on-line edition of Time Magazine carries a story by Joshua Kurlantzick paying all too infrequent homage to Indonesia's unequalled track record in the continuing war on international terrorism.

The article [See: How Indonesia is Winning Its War on Terror], chronicles recent devastating blows dealt to home-grown and imported terror cells, citing Indonesia as "one of the world's few triumphs in fighting terrorism."

Relating how police and anti-terror units have "arrested or killed some 300 alleged militants," Indonesia has also become a front-line member on the world effort to curtail money laundering and terror, earning praise from the U.S., Great Britain and Australia along the way.

Perhaps most fundamentally, Indonesia has avoided resorting to divisive and counter-productive draconian measures leaving J.I. a "much weaker" organization, according to terrorism expert Sidney Jones.

Persuasion Before Compulsion

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yodhoyono has pursued a policy of winning hearts and minds, persuading young Indonesians that extremism and radicalism have no place in Indonesian society. Leading religious figures have joined the President's public relations offensive in concert with film clips showing captured terrorists repenting their evil deeds.

Because the war on terrorism is a protracted a world-wide struggle, no Country can truly declare victory and free of its scourge. But the TIME article suggests that Indonesia may have turned the corner in dealing with terror and its perpetrators.
