    The world’s largest Muslim nation, Indonesia, is seeking to brush off the first terrorist attack on its soil by the Islamic State group. The bombings and gunfire — in which five of the jihadists died — also killed a dual Canadian-Algerian national and an Indonesian, while seriously wounding 24 other civilians and police.

    There is no excuse to hurt innocent people going about their daily business. Most people from these countries are lovely people who cannot do enough for you when you visit. Today's terrorists have hit a new low attacking soft targets almost all of the time. This is the act of cowards and I sympathize with all the victims family's. Terrorists should know that the world stands united against your cause. You will win nothing without negotiation and compromise.

    Indonesia must join the anti-IS coalition and help rid the world of them. It must be a world-wide effort.
