Tortured Howls of a Culled Cur

Vowing Revenge Beyond the Grave, Imam Samudra Claims Government Lacks the Courage to Execute His Trio of Terrorist Bombers.


(10/17/2008)

While the Moslem Holiday of Idul Fitri celebrates the virtue of humility via the seeking and granting of forgiveness for sins and trespasses, the sacred message of the season seems to have been completely lost on the three convicted Bali Bombers – Amrozi Nurhasyim, Imam Samudra and Ali Guffron.



Speaking to the local press during Idul Fitri prayers at the Nusakembangkan Prison in Central Java, Imam Samudra said he was confident that the government lacks the courage to follow through on its plans to execute him and his two co-conspirators now that the Islamic holidays are past.

Samudra also sounded an ominous warning, saying, "if there is someone who kills us, Allah willing, there will be someone who avenges us . . . all the executioners, including President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, would pay." Adding, "the followers will take revenge actions, other warriors. If anyone kills us, then there will be revenge from all over the place."

Visiting with family members who came to visit him on death row, Samudra urged his family not to despair as "no one will execute us."

No Regrets

In discussing his involvement in the October 12, 2002, Bali bombing in which 202 people died, Samudra said he had no regrets. On the contrary, he said felt proud of that incident, asking forgiveness and understanding only from the families of Moslem victims.

Samudra also expressed his disappointment that the Indonesian Courts have rejected the Bali Bombers' call for a judicial review of the method of execution in Indonesia, asking the courts to adopt "the more humane" method of beheading. Choosing to ignore expert testimony that execution by firing squad is a painful process requiring 5-10 minutes for death to occur, the Indonesian courts refused to accept the Bombers' plea that their execution before a firing squad would represent cruel and unusual punishment.

Australia Reacts

Reacting to Samudra statements, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd labeled the Bali Bombers as "mass murderers and cowards" wholly deserving of what's coming to them.

Rudd said: "The Bali bombers describe themselves as holy warriors. I say the Bali bombers are cowards and murderers, pure and simple, and frankly they can make any threats they like."

Speaking on a Perth, Western Australia, radio station, Rudd continued: "They deserve the justice that will be delivered to them. They are murderers, they are mass murderers and they are also cowards."
