A certain group is trying to mislead the public about 'terrorism' in Indonesia.
The indonesian police and military want tougher laws against terrorism
The Pentagon most likely agrees with this as it would like to get deeper into bed with the Indonesian generals.
Enter Noordin Top.
Reportedly, an email "sent by Noordin Top", and published on www.bagustv.com on 13 August 2009, is a fake.
On 13 August 2009, the Jakarta Globe reported that an IT expert says the E-mail Was Not Written By Noordin M Top: IT Expert
The information technology expert said that the method of communication was too simple and too easy to trace for a man on the run from authorities.
Ruby Alamsyah told Metro TV that the email was sent by hacking the password and username of the site owner, Bagus Febrianto.
Ruby said the choice of words was too 'naive' for a terrorist.
According to Ruby, "the email is not from terrorist because the method [hacking] is too simple. Terrorists would have used a more sophisticated method that would be very difficult to trace because they have the resources to do that."
In the email, the sender claimed to be Noordin M Top and said that he was in Temanggung, Central Java, during the recent police raid.

Complete translation of the e-mail:
Assalammualaikum Wr. Wb.
I am Noordin M Top, and I wish to verify that the one who died in Temanggung was Ibrohim, also known as Boim.
I was indeed at Temanggung during the time with my two guards and Ibrohim, but during the raid I managed to escape from the police.
I will never give up until America and its accomplices leave Iraq and other Islamic countries.
We have grounds for why we will keep on terrorizing foreigners:
1. As a revenge for what America and its accomplices have done to our Muslim and Mujahidin brothers all over the world.
2. To destroy their power in this country where they are thieves and robbers of Muslim’s valuables.
3. To get them out of Muslim countries, especially Indonesia.
4. The message is meant to heal the hearts of Muslims who are being tortured and abused all over the world. Lastly, the message will give new spirit to Muslims and revive the obligation of martyrdom which is the only way to revive the passing Rosyidah Leadership, if God is willing.

2. To increase the power of the military and police in Indonesia, and in the USA.
3. To promote the idea of the need for a 'War on Terror' and the stationing of US troops in various countries around the world.
