No surprise here. Search for “Abu Bakar Bashir” in the Jihad Watch archives. From China’s Xinhuanet, with thanks to Anthony:
JAKARTA, Dec. 21 (Xinhuanet) — Indonesian Muslim Cleric Abu Bakar Ba’ashir had delivered edicts from Osama Bin Laden to kill citizens of the United States and its allies in Indonesia, a witness said on Tuesday.
“Ba’ashir had delivered the edicts,” said witness Nassir Bin Abbas to Indonesian court session here.
He said “Osama bin Laden urges Muslims around the world to kill American and its allies civilians.”
Abbas said that Ba’ashir was head of the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI),a militant group seen as the Southeast Asian arm of al Qaeda.
