Crazy Islamist Watch
And how many crazy radical Islamists are there? Enough to fill the streets of Indonesia with rioters standing on the wrong side of human decency?
Let's remember what the three Indonesian terrorists facing execution in the next month -- Mukhlas, Amrozi and Imam Samudra -- are facing execution for: The murder of 218 individuals, most of them fellow Muslims. Many of the dead lingered through painful injuries until death overcame them; all left bereaved families. And many survived the blasts with injuries, physical and mental, that will be with them for life.
This puts them on a par with the most prolific serial killers in recorded history, Pedro Alonzo Lopez, who killed 300 girls in Peru, Columbia and Ecuador.
And how do they feel about all this? From the Sydney Morning Herald:
ONE of the Bali bombers has written from his Indonesian jail that he feels so "beautiful" on the eve of his execution that "no words can describe how good the feeling is". ...Mukhlas, a former Islamic preacher, has posted his writings on the Internet and he and Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir are asking Indonesia's Muslims to turn out en mass when the three killers' appeals process grinds down and they are placed before a firing squad for their rendezvous with
"I would not trade how I am feeling now with anything else in the world," he said.
Not that they may not be out there ... somewhere ... but the paper doesn't quote any moderate Muslims who are urging the faithful to not stand by these despicable terrorist thugs.
When Timothy McVeigh was executed, the streets of America were not filled with people taking his side. Will Indonesia show the same civility and maturity ... or will it just be another frightening, disgusting example of Islamist insanity?
