Gen. Moeldoko:" Let them come and we'll take them all out"

Jakarta. The Indonesian Military (TNI) is not at all impressed by threats made by a man claiming to be an Islamic State fighter, to come and free convicted terrorists from the maximum security prison on Nusakambangan island, off Central Java.

“It’s not a problem, let’s wait for them. It’s even better if they do come and not just spew some threats,” TNI chief Gen. Moeldoko said on Tuesday, as quoted by “Let them come and we’ll take them all out, no problem.”

It has been reported that a video posted on YouTube video contained threats to break convicted terrorists Abu Bakar Bashir and Aman Abdurrahman out of prison.

Authorities believe the man in the video could be the Indonesian-born IS militant named Abu Jandal, who previously appeared in a YouTube video uploaded in December, airing threats to the TNI and the National Police’s counterterrorism unit Densus 88.

Police say they are taking the latest video — titled “Salim News alias Abu Jandal” — seriously and have started an investigation, involving also Densus 88 and the National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT).

The video was viewed more than 5,000 times before it was removed.

Moeldoko said the military was primarily focusing on preventing the Islamic State ideology from gaining a foothold in the archipelago. However, he stressed, his forces would stand firm in the face of any concrete threat.

“Such ideology cannot be allowed to spread in Indonesia,” Moeldoko said. “I have seen clearly how the ideology can spread in unstable countries.”

Alleged Santoso backers arrested

Separately, on Monday, a police spokesman said Densus 88 operators had arrested two people suspected of involvement in terrorist activities in Poso, Central Sulawesi, and Bima, West Nusa Tenggara.

Herman, who is also known as Abu Syaif or David, and Busyro Atif, were arrested on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. local time in Bima, police spokesman Sr. Comr. Agus Rianto said on Monday in Jakarta.

The two suspects are believed to have connections to Santoso, the alleged leader of the East Indonesia Mujahideen (MIT) terrorist network, who remains at large. Santoso is also the former leader of the Poso wing of Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid (JAT) militant group, which was founded by Bashir.

Bashir is currently serving a 15-year jail sentence for involvement in a terrorist training facility in Aceh.

Police allege Herman was involved in the bombing of a traffic police post in Poso in 2013, among other attacks, and took part in military-style training with Santoso. Busyro is also believed to have trained with Santoso and is suspected of having been involved in the 2012 murder of two police officers in Tamanjeka, Central Sulawesi, namely Brig. Andi Sapa and First Adj. Insp. Sudirman.

“We are still investigating the two suspects to find out more about their roles,” said Agus

(Ohh, hold on for a bit pak Moeldono before you invite shaytan into Indonesia, it has taken zonks of time to either shoot or arrest the bajingans you've already got there plus there are many more still on the loose. What do you propose to do if they (several hundreds of them plus al their foreign budies) decide to take you up on your invitation?0 siK.
