Excerpt from a Bangkok Post Editorial

"Abu Bakar Bashir, the spiritual leader of Indonesian extremism, had no word of sympathy for his countrymen. There is no 'Jemaah Islamiyah Hospice' among the internationally-funded refugee camps of Aceh. No 'Osama bin Laden Child Care Station' has appeared in Sri Lanka or India... How much more credible their grievances would sound if they were helping people in their most desperate need instead of recruiting for future violence."
