Left Shoe News, 31 May, 2002

Jafar Umar Thalib, head of Laskar Jihad, was picked up after leaving the Moluccan Islands where his organisation has been accused of involvement in a massacre of Christian villagers last weekend.
Mr Thalib, a 40-year-old Afghan war veteran, denies having links with al-Qaeda, although he met Bin Laden in Pakistan in 1987. Two years ago, Jafar Umar Thalib sent thousands of Laskar Jihad fighters to the Moluccan Islands leading to a major escalation in the conflict. But the government and security forces did nothing to stop them. 10/5/02 Indonesia has said it will expel thousands of armed Muslim militants from the eastern Moluccas islands following the arrest of their leader six days ago. The militant leader, Thalib, appears to have the backing of influential Muslims including Vice-President Hamzah Haz, who visited him in his police cell on Wednesday.

The Indonesian paramilitary organization Laskar Jihad and its founder Jafar Umar Thalib: who they are
Jafar Umar Thalib, the founder of Laskar Jihad has held a low profile as the group has disbanded as of this writing. Jafar Umar Thalib the founder of Laskar Jihad The founder of Laskar Jihad was born on November 19, 1961 in Malang, East Java Indonesia. In 1999, he founded a group that was specifically designed to advocate for political reform. But the real goal of this group was to forbid the campaign of a female presidential candidate because Islamic sharia law forbids women from having any kind of power. Those of us in Western countries should be very grateful for what we have. It was in 1987 that he joined the Afghans in their fight against the Soviet Union. He also met Osama Bin Laden in Peshawar, Pakistan. He would return to Indonesia in 1989 to teach at a boarding school. He would be arrested in 2001 for presiding over a makeshift Islamic court that ordered a rapist be stoned to death. Stoning is illegal under Indonesian law and Thalib supervised that execution and he was never prosecuted for this crime. Later during an incident in the village of Soya near Ambon, a group of a dozen masked men with guns, grenades and daggers set fire to 30 homes and a church. After the carnage was over at least 12 Christians were killed. On May 4, 2002 as he was traveling from Ambon, Thalib was arrested and the East Jakarta District Court indicted him for acts of treason, inciting and insulting the president of Indonesia who was Megawati Sukarnoputri. He was initially trying to disband Laskar Jihad but he was still trying to gather his followers so that they could start demonstrations for the District Court to reduce his sentence. However, after Laskar Jihad was disbanded, Thalib was acquitted. According to the panel of judges, there was no proof that he had insulted or defamed Sukarnoputri or even incited others to violence. On January 30, 2003, Jafar Umar Thalib was freed from all charges.
