BALI bomber Amrozi bin Nurhasyim can finally be executed after Indonesia’s Supreme Court dismissed an appeal against his death sentence.
The only obstacle to Amrozi facing a firing squad is the political will of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who knows he will face a backlash from his Muslim electorate over the execution.
* Exactly. Because Muhammad said, ” No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir” (infidel). Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol. 9:50
* That’s exactly why Bucktooth Bashir never received his just punishment and got off after doing barely 25 months in the can. That’s why some of the Bali bombers have been taken out to Starbucks by their jailers; what more do you need to know?
Dr Yudhoyono — who is more than midway through his five-year term as President and the first Indonesian leader to be directly elected — still has the option of granting clemency to Amrozi, his older brother Ali Ghufron and fellow death-row bomber Imam Samudra.
* Sheik Yer’mami, the great prophet, predicts Yudhoyono will do exactly that…
However, that is a route he has expressly ruled out in the cases of the Bali Nine Australian heroin smugglers, and one he is extremely unlikely to take in this case.
* Certainly. The infidels will be executed, which will strike fear in the hearts of other infidels, especially the halfassed politicians in Australia who hide behind ‘having to respect the laws of Indonesia, a sovereign country’-
The Islamic fundamentalist trio were at the heart of the 2002 nightclub bombing that killed 202 people, including 88 Australians.
They were sentenced to death in 2003 but appealed against that decision after Indonesia’s Constitutional Court ruled the anti-terrorism legislation used to convict them should not have been retroactively applied.
That ruling has now been disregarded in a decision confirmed to The Weekend Australian last night by Supreme Court Chief Justice Iskandar Kamil.
