And, how are you today?Fine, thanks.
Actually, that's not 100% true, but I did struggle into work having slept for 10 hours and then I did as little as possible. But thanks for asking and for your advice
Something I do regularly consume on the basis that it tastes so bad that it must be good is jamu
. The best summary of this traditional herbal drink that I've found is on Islam Online
. However, I also like these sites which prove that jamu
does not help linguistic prowess.1. Jamu is based on the fact that is God created the World, with Disease and its Remedy. Besides, Indonesia has very-complete medicinal herbs, one of the world's largest collection.
tabib, a traditional doctor has been introducing this mention in ancient era. From them, drinking Jamu tradition has been popular in common people. And now, almost 80% of Indonesian people ever consume Jamu. For Indonesian people, Jamu is very popular as milk popularity for western.And, how are you today, Abu Bakar Baasyir?Fine, thanks. Actually, could be better, could be worse.
His 30 month jail sentence for involvement in a "sinister conspiracy
" that led to the October 2002 Bali nightclub bombings has been criticised by both opponents and supporters
What worries Jakartass is that the trial hinged on a police record that convicted Bali bombers Mubarok and Amrozi had met with the cleric at his house in Solo, Central Java, in August 2002 and asked for permission to carry out an "event" in Bali. "The defendant has been proved to have replied 'It's up to you, because you are the ones who know the situation in the field'," said
(presiding judge) Sudarto
.Baasyir's lawyers said the alleged conversation proved nothing and should not have been accepted as evidence because it was never tested during the trial.
Baasyir faced seven other charges, including allegations that as head of regional terrorism network Jemaah Islamiyah he had incited his followers to launch terrorist attacks and had planned the August 2003 suicide bombing at Jakarta's JW Marriott Hotel that killed 12 people, ... that he visited a Jemaah Islamiyah military training camp in the southern Philippines in April 2000 and had passed on an edict from Osama bin Laden calling for killings of Americans and their allies.
If it's true that 'there's no smoke without fire', then the paucity of the prosecutors' case leads one to suspect collusion, presumably with Islamic groups or politicians with vested interests. If, however, there was no case to answer ~ and saying "It's up to you" does not suggest decisive leadership by Baasyir ~ then the sentence is excessive.
Do not expect an in-depth analysis from this blog. I leave that to others
The Indonesian judiciary and police have a long way to go before they can be trusted to defend the rights of the public and defenders alike. I will continue to query 'conspiracy' charges, however. Although I do feel that Baasyir was the malevolent force behind the bombing outrages here, 'feelings' are not legal proof.
Meanwhile, the next 'political' trial could well be that of three students suspected of intending to burn a portrait of
"Suspected of intending to"?
