BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:17 P.M.) – Today the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the twin suicide bombing, that ripped through Indonesia’s capital Jakarta yesterday. The terrorist attack targeted a bus station in east Jakarta, frequented by police personal.

Several police officers were killed and many more injured in the attack on Wednesday May 24. The attack comes as the surging Islamic State movement in south-east Asia went on the offensive in the neighbouring Philippines and seized control of the city Marawi in clashes with the Philppine military, killing more than 80 soldiers.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:
