"The emergence of Islamic fundamentalism is one interesting phenomenon in post-Suharto Indonesia due to the fact that the vast majority of Indonesian Muslims are widely recognized as moderates. Due to the counter-terrorism concern, further questions could be proposed regarding to the position of fundamentalism among the Indonesian Muslim society and the role of the moderate Muslims in supporting the effort to eradicate terrorism."
