Bali bombers executed - Indonesian Islamists freak

Three co-conspirators in the October, 2002 Bali bombing which killed over 200 people were executed by firing squad. Predictably, their co-religionists are freaking out.
Wild scenes erupted and cries of 'death to infidels' – Westerners – rang out in a village today as the bodies of two of the executed Bali bombers returned home for burial.

'Smiling Assassin' Amrozi and his brother Mukhlas, shot by a firing squad, were carried by helicopter to their village of Tenggulun in central Java – and it was there that a 500-strong crowd unleashed their fury over the executions.

They cried for a holy war and threatened to avenge the deaths of 'our brothers'.

They cried for a holy war and threatened to avenge the deaths of 'our brothers'...sickening isnt it!

Sure is...and a couple points I failed to make in the original post:

1. Indonesian Muslims set off bombs in Indonesia that kill some western tourists, but mostly other Indonesian Muslims.
2. Indonesian government executes said Indonesian Muslims.
3. Remaining Indonesian Muslims threaten westerners over Indonesia's execution of Indonesian Muslims.

As has been pointed out elsewhere... at least now they are carbon neutral.

Heh...I saw a reference to that "carbon neutral" euphemism over at Ace of Spades. That's my new favorite ahead of "assumed room temperature".

Actually Eric, the biggest group of those killed were Australia. That's why I raised a few drinks to Indonesian justice.

But your 2nd & 3rd points are spot on.

Hmmm...I knew a lot of Aussies were killed, but I thought it was still mostly locals. Guess I should fact-check myself better.

Thanks, Scott.
