Muslims say Islam is their way of life. My experience in Indonesia is that Islam is failing and that Islam alone is not enough for humanity. I read the Koran 3 times (different English versions including the official Saudi version) in a vain hope to try and understand why Indonesians lie cheat deceive pretend rob steal etc. If Islam is their way of life are Indonesians indirectly saying Islam encourages graft and corruption. Who is not corrupt? Indonesians are poorly educated knowing very little about the world, and even their own country. Soeharo deliberately kept Indonesians ignorant and so they still are. In religion God is the answer for everything. That is simply not true and Indonesians better wake up to that fact and stop pretending they are close to God when God may not exist. Belief is not enough so do not mislead your children.
