*Â The results are in: the overwhelming majority of our readers supports the death penalty. When we put this pollÂ up we received a lot of mail telling us that support of the Death Penalty would somehow reflect negatively on the site, that people would look at us as ‘Far Right Extremists’ and all the usual excuses. However, now that the results are in and the number of readers improved considerably over the last month, we say it again: the jihad doesn’t discriminate between left and right, black and white or brown and green. The useful idiots who support the spread of Islam in the West are no different from those who feed a crocodile hoping it will eat them last.
* New Poll:
Do you believe Indonesia will execute the Bali bombers?
Death row: (L-R) Bali bombers Ali Ghufron alias Mukhlas, Imam Samudra alias Abdul Aziz and Amrozi.
Bali bombers ready for execution
THREE Indonesian Muslim militants on death row for the 2002 Bali bombings have reaffirmed their readiness to die provided the execution was done in accordance with Islamic laws, their lawyers said.
“In principle it (the planned execution) is no problem, as long as it has strong legal basis,” Achmad Michdan, one of the three men’s lawyers said on his way to Nusakambangan island, off the southern coast of central Java, where the three are jailed.
Mr Michdan was quoted by the state-run Antara news agency as saying Ali Ghufron, alias Muhklas, his younger brother Amrozi and Imam Samudra were awaiting a Supreme Court decision on a third legal review – the latest attempt to stall their executions.
Indonesia’s Supreme Court turned down the three men’s final appeal in March 2004, and rejected a similar request for a case review last year.
Executions in Indonesia are by firing squad, usually carried out at night in isolated and undisclosed locations. Government prosecutors said recently the three may soon be executed on the grounds that they will not seek presidential clemency.
Under Indonesian law a convict can ask for clemency from the president after legal appeals have been rejected by courts at all levels.
Amrozi, known also as the “smiling assassin”, Imam Samudra and Mukhlas were alleged members of Jemaah Islamiyah, a regional terrorist network responsible for several bombings across Indonesia in recent years.
Hundreds of people died in the Bali bombings.
