Noordin M Top is still mysterious

Previously, various media has published the death of Noordin M Top (the most wanted terrorist) in a raid conducted by anti-terror forces Densus 88 in a house in the Beji village, Kedu sub-district, Temanggung district. As promised by the Indonesian police to announce the identity (DNA test result) of the killed terrorist suspect body on Wednesday, 12 August 2009 (mean today), the result revealed that the suspect was not Noordin Mohammad Top (also known as Noordin M Top). It's mean that the existence of Noordin M Top is still mysterious.

Inspector General Nanan Soekarna, head of public relations division of National Police Headquarters, stated in Jakarta today that the body of the suspected terrorist who was killed in in Temanggung, was Ibrohim. Who is Ibrohim? Ibrohim (known as Boim at work) is an employee who worked as a gardener (florist) at Hotel Ritz Carlton and who were immediately disappear after the bombing happened. According to Nanan Soekarna, Ibrohim has played a dominant role in the bombing at JW Marriott and Ritz Carlton. His role is bringing the bomb into the two hotels.

As I watch the CCTV documentation aired by local TV stations, it showed the movement of Ibrohim in Ritz Carlton and JW Marriott. In first scenes, Ibrohim taken a survey firstly. In the next scenes, Ibrohim carried the goods suspected as bomb using a car. According to the car driver, he refused to be assisted and want to carried the goods by himself.

Although Noordin M Top has not been caught, I am proud of the hard effort and good progress achieved by the anti-terror forces Densus 88. I support you with prayer.


  1. I hope Noordin will be caught as soon as possible.

  2. All these cold blooded beasts have to be caught and brought to justice as soon as possible.

    Glad to hear the Taliban leader in Pakistan - Behtullah Mehsud was exterminated.

    If not on earth , in the next life they will get the full recompense of their deeds.

  3. A few days ago when the police said noordin was killed, I was skeptical. Then, it turned out that the dead body wasn't him.
    That means we still have to be alert to any possible danger ahead.

  4. Thanks for the good, factual, account.

    I do agree that, in spite of the awkward mistake about the identity of the corpse, anti-terror units have, generally speaking, done a good job. And no doubt Noordin Mohamed Top will be caught, sooner or later. And let's hope he will be caught alive - because it would be best if he could be interrogated and stand trial.

    Even more important is that sympathy with religious terrorism at the grassroots, will be dealt with.

    In this connection I heard about a hopeful example in the city-kampung Sidotopo of Surabaya. According to the story I was told since 2006 the control over it's Al Ihsan Sibililah mosque has been in the hands of Islamists of the Abu Bakar Baashir kind. Secret meeting took place and refuge was given to suspected strangers on a regular basis. But now mainstream believers of the neighbourhood took over. The Islamist Umar Ibrahim has been replaced by imam K.H. Misbach Baidowi.

    I guess that's the best way to wipe out terrorism: by the grassroots at the grassroots.

  5. Seno - That was everyone hope.

    Amrita - Indeed terrorism could be happened anywhere.

    Eha - I think the movement is more narrow.

    Colson - I'm glad that you realizes this matter (the good progress).

  6. So do I brother, so do I. I hope that they catch the low life and deny him his promised enjoyment in the afterlife.

  7. so sad its not noordin...

  8. Rummuser - Thanks for your support. The most dangerous is brain washing.

    Suryaden - Not so sad, I think an a good progress.

  9. Dear Noordin, please tell me where you are so they can get you sooner. I'm sick of reading your name everywhere everyday. You make headlines much more than me, and I'm jealous.

  10. We should be aware that there are still possibilities of terror in this country, praying that everything will be according to God's will

  19. Bizril - Thank you for the interesting comment and welcome to my blog

  20. Tikno...

    I am not sure that Top is all that mysterious. He is certainly elusive. However, I am pretty sure that he won't stay elusive forever. Some where, some time, some one will betray him and he will be caught.

  21. Rob Baiton - I really hope someone in his network will be aware. I think, the key is education to the next generation and promoting the good insight towards religious understanding from the grass root.

STOP the hatred war in the social networking site

Lately, I feel very worried by unscrupulous users of Facebook who already out of the spirit of Facebook motto namely "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life". Some of Facebook users who use this site only for uploading pornographic images and shared it using private setting to certain people (not shared to everyone) and the other using it for spreading the hatred feelings, like a Facebook Group calling for Obama's death.

Although a very controversial Pages on Facebook namely "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" which it created by Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been closed by Facebook after receiving protests from various parties including protests from the Indonesian government, the most recent controversy is the two opposing group on Facebook who mocked each other namely: "Everybody Draw Mohammed day (Indonesian version)" and the other one is "Everybody Draw Jesus day (Indonesian version)". As I observed on its la…


In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in favor.

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the privileg…

Equalize bachelor's degree with diploma's degree

At this time many Indonesian students continue to the higher education in various universities in Australia to obtain academic degrees such as Bachelor, Master or Doctorate. My three cousin and several other relatives also continue the higher education in Australia after finished Senior High School in Indonesia.

But I was startled after knowing the news from Antara News that the policy of Directorate General of Higher Education (Department of National Education) is to equalize Bachelor degree from several universities in Australia only equal to the Diploma-3 degree (D-3) in Indonesia. This policy was determined on 01 July 2009 within the Peraturan Direktur Jendral Pendidikan Tinggi (English : Regulation of Directorate General of Higher Education) Nomor:82/DIKTI/Kep/2009 concerning the assessment guidelines to certificate of foreign graduate. This regulation was followed up with the surat edaran Direktur Akademik (circular letter from Academic Director) No: 1850.1/D2.5/2009. At point n…

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes I know it is a prestigious academic degree. Only that? Hmm... I think NO. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:

And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt, below:
If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students.

What a beautiful thoughts that touched my heart.

Kartini's Day and Indonesian women

Recently on April 21 the Indonesian nation commemorate Kartini's Day. Actually Kartini's Day is similar to Mother's Day (celebrated in Indonesia on December 22) or International Women's Day. Perhaps to understand Mother's Day you need to understand a person in your life called Mother, and for the International Women's Day and Kartini's Day perhaps you need to understand the person in your life called wife or sister. If you are underestimating women then firstly you need to look at your mother. Am I wrong?

In short: That is all for women. In wider meaning: That is how these special Day to further raise the awareness of Indonesian society or even the world - especially the women themselves - about women rights, their struggle for equality, and their important role in various spheres of life. This is also an occasion for Indonesian women to review how far their struggle get acknowledgment especially from the point of view of Indonesian traditional society who…
