The Qaeda-linked terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah has detonated a car bomb in front of the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, killing at least eight and injuring hundreds. The suspect believed to be responsible for this attack is the same who engineering the deadly Bali nightclub bombing in 2002 that killed 200 Australian and Indonesian citizens.
This bombing is likely designed to impact the upcoming Indonesian and Australian elections in much the same way the Madrid attacks did. It is critical that no nation submit to the will of terrorists and does everything they can to strike at these murderous savages before they have the chance to strike again. As it has been made clear time and time again, capitulation or negotiation with terrorism is a fool’s errand and neutrality is a naive illusion – either all nations stand strong against terrorism or we risk more attacks by Islamofascist terror.
