Overall how should we assess the threat of Islamic militancy in Indonesia?
- There is little evidence to support a widespread threat from Islamic militants in the region
- Organizations such as the Front have been affiliated with Al Qaeda in terms of monetary aid received without the benefit of evidence to support this claim
- These Radicalists constitute a small number of the muslim population in Indonesia
- Violence against Christians incited by Lasker Jihad has decreased through containment by military action (Crouch 2001)
A consensus (of sorts) appears to exist amongst analysts as to the key factors behind the recent upsurge in terrorism and violence in southern Thailand. What are those factors?
- Political beliefs regarding Malay-Muslim patriotism and dissidence are the primary reasons.
- Further radicalization of Malay Muslims by Bangkok through unfair policies and incidents such as the ones at Krisek and Tak Bai
- Employing circumstantial evidence, the United States is coloring this conflict as global terrorism (Liow 2006)
- Domestic groups have no interest in the agendas of international muslim groups (Abuza 2002)
