    I don't see why you had to write: 'world's most populous Muslim country'.

    The article states that: No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Sutiyoso, the head of the country's national intelligence agency, says there are no indications yet that it's Isis related.

    Because when I heard the story on the radio, in the four or so minutes the story was on, that phrase was repeated at least three times. It's a 'get used to hearing this phrase' kind of day.

    The so-called "poison" of a twisted mentality that knows no bounds. They know they can cause havoc in any area they want, in order to descend it into chaos. I think Brazil will be next.

    But seeing as how it is 'the world's most populous Muslim country', if it is in the name of Jihad, why are they killing Muslims? Seems counter-intuitive, to say the least.

    Nothing to do with religion and everything to do with submission. To make everyone in the planet worry that "they are next".

    Indonesia have their own Islamic terrorist groups such as Jemaah Islamiyah who have carried out similar attacks in Indonesia in the past.

    This attack is in the city centre of a global city which has lots of foreign embassies, international businesses, luxury hotels etc... This attack has taken place in an area where there will be many foreign individuals from China, America, Korea etc...

    Do you think they targeted Starbucks (a western company) because they served them the wrong skinny latte?

    90+% of terror attacks in 2015 were Islam related, so we can safely assume this one was too.
