Indonesian-Thaliand Cooperation

The southern part of Thailand is the scene of a Muslim led rebellion in a nation where 90% of the people are Buddhists. The Thai government has reached out to indonesia which is the largest Muslim nation in the world for assistance. According to the Jakarta Post, Indonesian clerics will meet with Muslim religious leaders in southern Thailand to help work out a compromise to end the rebellion which so far has led to the death of over 2,000 people.

We too frequently read media reports of Muslim violence, but stories about moderate Muslims working for peace and reconciliation will never make it into the American press. Most Muslim are NOT terrorists but decent people who seek peace.
