The green continent might become a part of an Islamic state

The Indonesian Jemaah Islamiya terrorist group strives to set up an Islamic state in Southeastern Asia. Australia’s north is planned to be a part of this territory. This was reported by the Australian television company ABC with reference to the Philippine special services.

Jemaah Islamiya is considered to be involved in the recent act of terrorism on the resort island of Bali. Over 180 people (presumably, Australian tourists) were killed as a result of the blast in a night club. The UN, the USA, Australia, and Great Britain included the above-mentioned group on the list of terrorist groups. The groups’ leader, Abu Bakar, is now on the FBI’s wanted list of most dangerous terrorists. The special services of the USA and other countries are searching for other leaders of the group: Fathur Rohman Al-Ghozi and Riduan Isamudin. Thirteen Jemmah Islamiya activists have already been arrested.

ABC said that the secret agents of the Philippines obtained Jemmah Islamiya plan about the establishment of the Muslim state. The Philippines' national security adviser, Roilo Golez, said that the so-called Islamic state would consist of Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. "Jemaah Islamiyah's vision of a pan-Islamic state includes parts of northern Australia," Golez said. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation presented evidence, according to which Al-Qaida-linked Jemaah Islamiya terrorist group was playing the leading role in terrorist activities in the southeast of Asia. Australia might be the terrorists’ object now as well.
