Quote# 36707

ISLAMIC cleric Abu Bakar Bashir has returned to his hardline rhetoric with a call for followers to beat up Western tourists and for young Muslims to die as martyrs.

In the sermon, organised by an Islamic youth organisation and delivered a few kilometres from the home village of convicted Bali bombers Amrozi and Mukhlas, Bashir likened tourists in Bali to "worms, snakes, maggots", and specifically referred to the immorality of Australian infidels.

The address was caught on video by an Australian university student.

"The youth movement here must aspire to a martyrdom death," said the cleric, who was convicted of conspiracy over the 2002 Bali bombings that killed 202 people, including 88 Australians, but was later cleared and released from prison.

"The young must be first at the front line - don't hide at the back. You must be at the front, die as martyrs and all your sins will be forgiven. This is how to achieve forgiveness."

Islam is no more the religion of peace than Christianity is the religion of love.

"The young must be first at the front line"

We certainly wouldn't want call for old, jackass imams to be in the front line would we Abu?

Suddenly, Christianity looks a lot better. At least they can get forgiveness for their sins without the use of bombs and bloodshed...

Old man's war, young man's fight. The history of the world.

Amazing that the guys who call for war are always safely tucked away in bunkers somewhere.

Encik Bashir,

You do realize Bali relies a lot of Western tourism right? And besides, who will raise the children and cultivate the land if all young men are dead?

Assholes like you make Southeast Asia unsafe.

I second David D.G.'s motion.

Die as martyrs and you will die and be dead. And so will a lot of innocent people. Unfortunately, you will have no chance to realise you're wrong and reflect on that.

"ISLAMIC cleric Abu Bakar Bashir has returned to his hardline rhetoric with a call for followers to beat up Western tourists and for young Muslims to die as martyrs."

Funny how they always want someone else to martyr themselves. If it's such a wonderful thing to do, why don't you goofy fuckers calling for it get to the head of the line?

"The young must be first at the front line - don't hide at the back. You must be at the front, die as martyrs and all your sins will be forgiven. This is how to achieve forgiveness."

You first asshole. You first.

Sounds like another wonderful case of the "Bravery that comes from being out of Range"!

What the hell did the Australians do to anyone?

And, yeah, get the young people who don't really know any better to go kill themselves. It's harder to get the older peeps into it, since they'd think about it more.

Or you could join atheism, live a long, happy life, and then die.

Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!

Also, evil clerics are people too stupid to realise that spontaneous cure spells are better than spontaneous inflict spells.

If he's a cleric, he should be strapping on the plate mail and whacking at kobolds with a mace.

Do it enough times, Abu, and you'll get to 2nd level!



EDIT: Dammit, Fanatic-Templar beat me to it!

You ask them to martyer yet you show fear to do so yourself you fucking coward.

Somebody ought to just kill this guy, really.

Just take him out. You spew venom like a cancerous pustule, and you get removed from the body.

We remove tumors, so why don't we remove people that tenaciously pursue means of encouraging senseless violence?

It may sound hypocritical, but if the guy is just killed in a way that doesnt arouse suspicion, BINGO.
