Tentang anak-anak pondok pesantren yang dilarang membaca koran/majalah dan menonton TV, dulu saya pernah dengar. Di ponpes yang agak modern, hanya pada waktu-waktu tertentu mereka boleh membaca media dan menonton tv.
Yang dipertanyakan: apakah larangan itu perlu? Bukankah membaca media juga termasuk aktivitas yang positif? salam, radityo ----- Original Message ----- From: "bung_yono" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Saturday, November 01, 2008 7:32 AM Subject: [mediacare] Berita Seputar Eksekusi Amrosi dkk... > My sons were right, says Bali bombers' mum > November 1, 2008 - 1:00AM > Source: ABC News, Australia > > None of the bombers' relatives expressed regret for the carnage. > > The mother of two of the Bali bombers on death row said her sons > were right to "kill infidels", as they prepared to face firing > squads over the attacks which killed 202 people, including 88 > Australians. > > Seventy-year-old Tariem spoke from her house in the village of > Tenggulun, East Java, after working all day in her fields and > visiting the mosque. > > "I don't cry.
