No place for terror in Malaysia

by Ioannis Gatsiounis from Asia Times

Many of the region's top terror suspects linked to Jemaah Islamiah (JI) terrorist network, including Abu Bakar Bashir and Hambali, were stationed in Malaysia before settling elsewhere in the region. No investigations that I know of have been carried out to see what impact they had here on local minds. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabian money is helping fund Islamic education in Malaysia, with the puritanical Wahhabi strain of the faith said to have attracted some adherents in the northern state of Perlis.
