The heading of the post mirrors the headline in the newspaper story here, but I don’t really see an explanation in the article for the recent surge in hostility.

One explanation that I think goes some way to explaining it is here, but again I am left with the feeling that an identifying trigger is being missing in the broader context of Indonesian politics, society and cultural progression (or more aptly in this context, regression).

I will think further about this unhappy page in Indonesian history and hopefully return with my own explanation.
