No, nothing Power invaded Indonesia to spread Islam. Indonesian Islamization was through business and trading activities by group of merchants from Indian Subcontinental. So Islam became the largest Moslem country in the world, as Barack Hussein Obama mentioned in live interview with Alarabia TV last month. Not less than Secretary of States declared last two weeks that who want to see Islam and Democracy hand in hand ,come to Indonesia
