    In Worldıs Largest Muslim Nation, Christians See the Writing on the Wall

    The Bali bombings and the August 5 bombing of the Marriott hotel in Jakarta highlight radical Islamıs tightening grip on Indonesia. Less visible, however, is the daily terror directed at the Christian minority in the worldıs largest Muslim nation. As next yearıs first direct elections of president and vice-president approaches, Christians worry that this underreported violence will only escalate.
