"The army is behind the jihad"
Noordin Top is the Malaysian alleged to be behind the Jakarta hotel bombings of July 2009.
He may well have links to the security services. (NOORDIN TOP WORKS FOR THE SECURITY SERVICES?)
On 7 July 2009, Indonesian police reported that two men, who were believed to be Noordin Top's bodyguards, had been arrested in a workshop in a market in Temanggung and had led police to a house in the same area.

TV footage showed police from the anti-terrorism unit creeping towards the house.
This looks like a well-planned psyop?
Reportedly the police shot Noordin dead.
Indonesia's Tempo magazine, 4 August 2009, reports on the Small World of Noordin Top, a Big Fugitive.
From this we learn that Noordin Top has lived in Pasuruhan village in the Cilacap district in Indonesia.
Indonesia's Kopassus regiment trains in Cilakap.
Koppasus are suspected of being behind the decades of terrorism in Indonesia.

On 8 July 2009, at a house in Bekasi, "two suspected militants were killed and three were arrested" during a police raid. (Indonesian Police Kill 2 Suspected Militants Outside Jakarta, Find 500 kg of Bombs)
Officers "seized explosives and a car bomb".
"The two men killed in the raid were identified as ex-prisoner Air Setyaawan, believed to be connected to the bomb attack on the Australian Embassy in Jakarta in 2004, and Eko Peyang, suspected of being a bomb assembler."
How easy is it to get a prisoner to become a patsy?
The Jakarta Post reports that the Police foiled a plot to kill the Indonesian president
"National Police chief Gen. Bambang Hendarso Danuri said the terror group intentionally rented a house in Jatiasih in the West Java town of Bekasi, which is located 12 minutes drive from the president’s private residence in Cikeas in the West Java town of Bogor.
“Why Jatiasih? Because it is situated just about 12 minutes drive from the president’s [private] residence. It’s a legal fact that the target is the president’s house,” Bambang told a media conference on 8 August 2009.
Police claim to have identified "the two suicide bombers responsible for the July 17 attacks on the Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott hotels in Jakarta". (Police Identify Jakarta Hotel Bombers)
Bogor resident Dani Pramana, aged 19, has been identified as the bomber responsible for the attack on the JW Marriott Hotel.
Iwan Maulana, 28, from Pandeglang has been identified as having bombed the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
Were they patsies? (aangirfan: THE USE OF PATSIES IN THE JAKARTA HOTEL BOMBINGS? )
Dr George J. Aditjondro is the leading expert on Indonesian politics.
Aditjondro wrote, in October 2002, that Indonesia's military and business elites have very close ties to Israel and Mossad.
Here is an extract from a program produced by SBS, Australia's Special Broadcasting Services (Inside Indonesia's War on Terror):
George Aditjondro says that in every Indonesian hotspot, the army foments trouble by funding and arming both sides. In the case of Central Sulawesi, both Muslim and Christian militia.
GEORGE ADITJONDRO: So the money does not have to come from rich people like Osama bin Laden and the weapons don't have to come from southern Philippines or from other exotic places but is actually coming from the official sources and that is why I am saying that the kind of terrorism which we see in Indonesia is home grown terrorism. It's a kind of duel function or triple function of the armed forces.
The late reverand Agustina Lumentut told me in 2001 that the Indonesian military was using proxy armies to do their dirty work.
THE LATE REVEREND AGUSTINA LUMENTUT: It is for sure, for sure that the army is behind the jihad, or in front of jihad, yeah. No other interpretation.
It was proved beyond all doubt that one of the extremist groups, the Laskar Jihad, was supplied, transported and incited by the central government to go on its murderous spree.
THE LATE REVEREND AGUSTINA LUMENTUT: Who dare among them to say "Stop going that." Because they have reason for doing that, they are registered officially by the government, the central government.
Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is applauded in Australia as a moderate Muslim leading the fight against terror in Indonesia. But as the influential coordinating minister for politics and security, he chose not to stop the Laskar Jihad and was even supporting them.
