Bashir wastes no time in gloating, issuing new threats

Freed Islamist radical Abu Bakar Bashir wasted no time in gloating to the west over his release, and in issuing threats of more attacks to come:
"This is evidence that even though all this time the West think that they can subjugate Indonesia, there are still some Muslims and Indonesians who have the courage to convey the truth," Bashir told Elshinta radio in a telephone interview.

Bashir, 68, was released in June after completing a 30-month jail sentence for being part of a conspiracy behind the nightclub bombings.

"I hope the West will open their eyes and if they remain adamant, there will be heavier blows. This is a blow and warning for the West," he said.
