reuters misleading article

I believe that the article is a misleading one,
never read any local news supporting this article
I have looked also to the survey institute website stated in the article
there is no such survey published in the website, or perhaps I missed it?
there is no individual, representative of the insitute quoted in the article to back up the survey.
There is no name but the institute itself.

while everybody apprears in the news are all condeming the bali bom attack.
never Indonesian have any doubt that any terrorism attack in Indonesia were all pure felony, and a threat to pluralism in Indonesia.
Never did any religious leader in Indonesia support the terrorism move and said that the action are part of their Jihad mission to uphold the truth and justice in Indonesia.

We, the Indonesian, totally condemn all terrorism actions


Is the article valid?
Is the Reuters only have low editoral check and balance policy when it comes to Indonesian issue?
or is it merely rookie reporter reporting for Reuters?

Pls REUTERS, do improve your reporting quality
especially, when it comes to damaging image and reputation of one nation.


One in 10 Indonesia Muslims back violent jihad: poll

Reuters, Sun Oct 15, 9:04 AM ET

Around one in 10 Indonesian Muslims support jihad and justify bomb attacks on Indonesia's tourist island of Bali as defending the faith, a survey released on Sunday showed.

"Jihad that has been understood partially and practiced with violence is justified by around one in 10 Indonesian Muslims," the Indonesian Survey Institute said in a statement.

"They approved the bombings conducted ... in Bali with the excuse of defending Islam," it added, saying the percentage of such support "is very significant."

The poll surveyed a random sample of 1,092 Muslim men and women.

Bombings in Bali in October 2002 blamed on the militant Southeast Asian Jemaah Islamiah network killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists. Suicide blasts in Bali a year ago killed 20.

The survey found one in five Indonesian Muslims more generally supported the aims of Jemaah Islamiah -- an armed movement backing the creation of an Islamic superstate linking Muslim Indonesia and Malaysia, and Muslim areas in the Philippines and Thailand.
