  • 60-Year-Old Christian Woman Publicly Caned In Indonesia For Breaking Sharia Law

    A 60-year-old Christian woman was caned yesterday (April 12) in Indonesia’s Banda Aceh province—for breaking rules aimed at Muslims. It was the first time somebody from outside the Islamic faith was caned under the province’s harsh sharia regulations. Until recently, sharia regulations applied only to the province’s Muslim population. But under bylaws that went into effect late last year, now members of other religions can also be punished under the rules—although until yesterday it wasn’t clear just how far that would go.

    Mega-tsunami theory disputed February 03, 2008 SUPPOSED evidence Australia has been subject to prehistoric tsunamis up to 20m in height over the past 10,000 years could just be the result of Aboriginal occupation, a major conference is set to hear tomorrow. Archaeologists from the Australian National University say the theory about the mega-tsunamis, which has influenced the development of emergency service plans in Western Australia, is not supported by evidence. In 2003 Australian geological researchers suggested prehistoric tsunamis over the past 10,000 years were much larger than those recorded since European settlement, including findings of surges up to 20m in...

    China has just had a run-in with its only friend in the South China Sea, and that could complicate matters for Beijing as it continues to try to take a more aggressive stance in the region. On March 19, an official Indonesian vessel detained a Chinese fishing trawler that was operating in Indonesia's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the coast of the Natuna islands. The islands are on the periphery of the South China Sea, and their EEZ abuts China's self-declared Nine-Dash Line, which Beijing uses to mark its claims in the region. In the past, Indonesia has not had...

Susi Pudjiastuti, Indonesia’s minister for fisheries and maritime affairs, told reporters he would summon the Chinese ambassador, Xie Feng, on Monday to discuss a Chinese fishing trawler accused of illegally fishing in Indonesian waters. Indonesian authorities attempted to capture the trawler on Saturday and arrest the Chinese crew. But they were stopped by a Chinese coast guard boat that reportedly “rammed” the trawler and pushed it back...

    Six Bangladeshi migrants caught entering Australian waters have been sent back to Indonesia on a fishing boat, according to an Indonesian official. The decision has been criticised by the Indonesian foreign ministry, which is opposed to Australia's controversial policy of returning migrants. It warns that such acts could be dangerous at sea. The six men, along with two Indonesian crew, left from the eastern Indonesian city of Kupang last week bound for Australia. After three days at sea they reached Australian waters, but had engine trouble and the boat began to sink. They were picked up by the border patrol....

    This foraging occupation of one site effectively doubles and confirms the length of Madagascar’s known occupational history and thus the time during which people exploited its environments. The rock shelter yielded a stratified assemblage with small flakes, microblades, and retouched crescentic and trapezoidal tools, probably projectile elements, made from cherts and obsidian, some brought more that 200 km. The assemblage from the top layers of the site is well dated to 1050–1350 A.D. This was achieved using carbon dating and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL), as well as ceramic typology imported from the Near East and China. Below this layer is...

Controversy has raged ever since as to whether they are an unknown branch of early humans or specimens of modern man deformed by disease.

    Indonesia is currently in the process of updating a part of its eclectic mix of military aircraft. The three platforms which represent Jakarta’s most formidable airborne capability are the U.S. General Dynamics (GD) F-16, Russian Sukhoi-27, and Sukhoi-30MK. The Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU) reflects the country’s recent history international relations, operating a mixed bag of Russian, U.S., Brazilian, and European aircraft. Since its independence in 1945, the country has fielded aircraft from both sides of the Iron Curtain, often reflecting its political alignment. In 1986s, Indonesia purchased a batch of F-16s, intended to supplement its fleet of F-5E Tigers. However,...

    There are lots of reasons why President Barack Obama is meeting with Indonesian President Joko Widodo today in Washington. Indonesia doesn't often get the attention it deserves, but it is a key country with major links to the United States. It's in the G7, and millions of its citizens or former citizens live in the US. Most important, Indonesia is the fourth most populated country in the world, with a Muslim population that outstrips all other countries in the Middle East and North Africa in size. Because it has a democratic system of governance, President Obama and other US officials...

    Authorities in Indonesia's conservative Aceh province on Monday began tearing down several small Christian churches after hardline Muslims demanded their closure, citing a lack of building permits, and following religious violence. Tensions are high among the ethnically and religiously diverse population of Aceh Singkil, where last week a mob burned down a church, leaving one person dead and forcing thousands of Christians to flee the area. Armed police and military troops have been deployed to the area and evacuees have returned. Indonesia has the world's largest Muslim population and the vast majority of its citizens practice a moderate form of...

    Remember, Obama grew up in “moderate” Indonesia. Why doesn’t he ever address the vicious oppression, subjugation and supremacism of Islam in Muslim countries? Why is he constantly campaigning for Islam as a religion of peace? He is disingenuous and dangerous.Photo above: Residents walk near a burned church to attend Sunday mass at Suka Makmur Village in Aceh Singkil, Indonesia Aceh province, October 18, 2015 © YT Haryono / Reuters “Christian churches in Indonesia province to be closed over Muslim groups’ pressure,” By RT, October 17, 2015Authorities in an Indonesian province in Northern Sumatra have decided to shut down several Christian...

    The province of Aceh in Indonesia (Where Muslims are considered moderate) became the first in the nation to have officially introduced Sharia law — strict adherence to Islamic law. So what did they do after adopting Koranic law? Within days, they decided that every Christian church in the province needed to be “licensed” under Sharia, and were thus illegal, as the BBC reported. So did they petition to government to fine them for this non-existent crime? Of course not. The savages decided to burn the Churches to the ground. So a mob of nearly 750 Muslims in Aceh attacked a...
