Why should he be repentant? What has been done to disabuse him of the jihad ideology? Undoubtedly nothing. From Australia’s Sunday Telegraph:
UNREPENTANT Bali bomber Imam Samudra has warned he will continue to wage jihad if a recent constitutional court decision means he is set free.
Vowing to carry out more bombings against “unbelievers”, Samudra said: “I want to continue my Jihad Fie Sabililah (violent holy struggle).
Actually this is “jihad for the sake of Allah,” which is indeed a technical term in Islamic law referring to jihad warfare.
“I want to go to Moro (in the Philippines). I want to go to Afghanistan. I want to go to Israel to kill Sharon.”
Speaking from his death-row cell in Bali’s Kerobokan prison, Samudra vowed to kill again. “If I get the death penalty, I will die a martyr’s death. If I’m free, I’ll bomb again. You got it?”
The 33-year-old field commander of the Bali bombings that killed 202, including 88 Australians, said he would “slaughter Bush” if a recent change in Indonesian legislation meant he was released from custody.
