Islamists vow revenge for the death of a ‘warrior’

Tom Allard, Jakarta | May 4, 2011

THE killing of Osama bin Laden will bring ''disaster'' to the US and the al-Qaeda leader secured victory even in death, according to radical Indonesian cleric Abu Bakar Bashir.

Bashir, who is in prison as he faces charges of leading and financing a new terrorist organisation, met with his acolytes yesterday for the first time since news of bin Laden's demise.

''Ustad Abu [Bashir] said if the news is true, it means Osama won the battle twice,'' said his spokesman, Sonhadi, who visited Bashir in the Jakarta penitentiary.

''First, he will get the title as martyr in the afterlife and, second, his death is the victory over the hegemony of infidels. Ustad Abu also said Allah will bring disaster upon the US for killing the warrior of Islam … we just don't know what that disaster will be.''

Mr Sonhadi, who himself was imprisoned for four years for hiding terrorist leaders, said Bashir had his doubts that bin Laden had been killed, noting that no pictures of his corpse had been made public.

It was a theme prominent on Indonesian jihadist blogs and comments from militants yesterday, as were predictions of bloody revenge.

''Americans may be partying, celebrating his death. But they will cry later and be blanketed with pain,'' Syawal Yasin told the Jakarta Globe newspaper.

Syawal is the son-in-law of Abdullah Sungkar, who along with Bashir founded Jemaah Islamiah (JI), the terrorist group with direct links to al-Qaeda responsible for multiple attacks in Indonesia, including both Bali bombings.

JI has been badly fractured thanks to successful law enforcement efforts but other extremist groups have come to the fore, including some that are legal and have links to the police and political figures.

The Islamic Defenders' Front (FPI), which has been behind a string of attacks on religious minorities, will hold a commemoration service tonight in honour of bin Laden.

Jakarta's governor and police chief attended FPI's anniversary celebrations last year. The Jakarta police chief, Timur Prabopo, was later appointed national police chief by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. A series of plots have been uncovered in Indonesia in the past two years, including a plan to explode a massive bomb near a church during Good Friday services last month.

Any operational involvement by al-Qaeda in Indonesian militant groups these days remains unclear but great intrigue surrounds the arrest of Umar Patek, Indonesia's most wanted militant, in January in Abbottabad, the same Pakistani city where bin Laden was slain. The arrest followed a firefight in which the JI operative was shot.

Patek was a senior JI member who trained in Afghanistan and acted as deputy field commander in the first Bali bombing that killed 202 people, including 88 Australians.

Pakistani media reports said Patek was liaising with an al-Qaeda operative, a courier who also worked as a clerk at Abbottabad's post office.

According to an anonymous source from Indonesia's intelligence agency quoted in Koran Tempo, Patek was in Abbottabad to meet with al-Qaeda operatives and plan attacks to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

Anthony Bubalo, an analyst writing on the Lowy Interpreter blog, said: ''Perhaps most interesting of all is why bin Laden was not spooked into moving location as a result of Patek's arrest.''

I think my comment was a reasonable one. I have no idea what’s going on, but whatever it is, it is certainly not doing TNR’s reputation much good. 45 minutes of “news” in almost six weeks, with no explanation. This in no way to treat your listening audience (subscribers and others) or to build support and a good reputation.

“In today’s show we break down the core issues behind the conviction of David Hicks, and link the whole thing back to the grand deception of 9/11, without which, none of this would have occurred.”

and yet hereward continues to perpetuate the lies of 9/11 by claiming a 757 hit the pentagon with absolutely zero evidence to back it up and a plethora of evidence that shows his claims to be impossible.

spare us your condescending enlightenment and stop lying.

The comment by Eugene above is most unhelpful to say the least

, “you know Shawn, we might not be able to save your house, what do you think we should do?”...wouldn’t you find that a liltte bit strange? Assuming of course that you, like Mr. Silverstein, had absolutely no affiliation with or expertise in fighting fires? Or would you proceed to direct the fire chief, over then phone mind you, on whether to proceed with fighting it or pull the fire chiefs men out?  Larry Silverstein, Jewish landlord, financier, and part time psychic fireman safety coordinator for NYFD Secondarily, and less relevant, I have no demolition experience beyond home repair, but I do have a background in linguistics (thanks Noam!) and the only time an English speaking person refers to a human being or group of human beings as “it” tends to be right before they eat them. Perhaps Silverstein is a psychopath, I know liltte else about him so I can’t say, but but violent psychos refer to their victims as objects to dehumanize the experience of killing them. But I don;t think that’s what Larry meant. On that note, as I’ve said before, find me one other example of anyone on the scene on 9/11, or ANY TIME SINCE that has referred to a firefighter or group/contingent/unit of firefighters as “IT”. Not “them”, “they” “him”, “we”, “our”, “us”, but “it”. You can’t find one.  Because most people aren’t psychotic, amen for that.

Herewood,
If you want financial support on a regular basis, you need to regularly present news casts. There has been nothing for almost a month. I have been listening to TNR for its inception, and it has never been as scatty. In six weeks you have only presented an hour of reporting, 15 minutes of which is punctuated by useless advertisements which have little or no relevance to Australians. I hope you can lift your game or I fear this once brilliant show will be destined for the scrapheap.

Yes, fascinating.  However, I would be more inclined to resort to massive vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) used successfully by Dr Brighthope in cancer, both as a painkiller and healing.  He also used successfully vit C to heal AIDS. 

Well, when i still lived in formerCzechoslovakia (during the regime of the Communist party) we believed in the USA and capitalism.  There was a (Russian) joke about it: two comrades travel to the West and talk to each other, “Capitalism is decaying but the smell is wonderful”; and agreed that when they come back home they will talk cryptically about the situation in the west: when talking about good things they will say “like in a film” and when talking about bad things “like at home”.

Well, these days I must say that the situation in the West is “like at home” and the capitalism is decaying but the smell is not so wonderful.

I don’t dispute that - but she has no other sources for her beliefs than those other thousands, and she stressed that she spoke as a private person.

Since she did not have any insider knowledge to admit, the headline of the “Neon Nettle” article is misleading.
