Summary Indonesian extremists are more engaged by the conflict in Syria than by any other This report notes four reasons why the conflict has become so popular. It is linked to sayings of the Prophet Muhammad that the final battle at the end of time will take place in Sham (Greater Syria). It is the subject of a book, The Two-Arm Strategy, translated from the Arabic that has become a runaway bestseller in the Indonesian radical community, showing how chaos in the Middle East following the Arab Spring can be used by jihadis to restore the caliphate. Atrocities of Syrian government forces have been widely covered in Indonesian media, sparking outrage well into the Muslim mainstream. And it is relatively easy to get to Turkey from Indonesia and go into Syria over the border
