Sadly there have been quite a few of such bombings in Indonesia, which are usually directed against Western and/or Christian targets.

5 December 2002 - bombing of a McDonalds restaurant in Makkasar, killing 3.
12 October 2002 - 'the Bali bombing', killing 200.
24 December 2000 - on Christmas eve bombs go off in various Christian churches in several cities, in total killing 17.
13 September 2000 - bombing of the Jakarta stock exchange, killing 15.
21 August 2000 - bomb goes off in the residence of Fillipino ambassador in Jakarta, killing 3.
As long as people have the notion that through such attacks they advance their goals, the future will see even more of such bombings.
What to do against them? Stricter security measures can be taken, but that doesn't solve the problem. If at it's root lies a conviction that the acts of the bombers are justified and even glorious, then that's what needs to be changed.
To that effect ordinary people can do more than one might think. Shortly after the London bombings, there were quite a few people who reacted by saying the suicide bombers themselves were not really to blame, but that it was actually Bush's fault. Such twisted reasoning was expressed here on this very forum even. In effect buying right into the terrorists propaganda. And if that is the general perception, then the terrorists have been successful. They'll know it and feel encouraged to carry out yet another bombing.
Whatever one feels are the motivations of the people that carry out such bombings, it should never and under no circumstances be deemed acceptable or justified. Failure to outright condemn such acts will only lead to more attacks.
