Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has failed to convince Indonesia to outlaw Jemaah Islamiah.
Mr Downer returned home late yesterday after a three-day trip to Indonesia, which included talks with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
While Mr Downer was unable to get Indonesia to oblige on the JI ban, he came away with assurances of improved counter-terrorism structures, including better coordination of its response to the terrorism and tougher laws.[[/u]

Muslims will use Bali as their "killing ground" until they take control there too. Once they have control of Bali there will be no tourist trade anyway and poverty will increase as it does in any Muslim country!!
Unless Indonesia adopts a purely secular government and takes tough measure to keep it that way, I predict the end of Bali as we know it.

Don't you think it strange that wherever you find a growing Muslim population you also find terrible violence. Just take a look at Southern Thailand for example.
