Now the Butcher of Bali, Bashir wants damages

IN the ultimate insult to Australia's Bali bombing victims, radical cleric Abu Bakar Bashir has bragged that he is planning to sue for damages after a controversial decision to clear him of terrorism charges.

The families of victims of the 2002 attack told of their despair that Bashir – widely regarded as the spiritual leader of the terrorists who murdered their loved ones – is free and planning to cash in.

And in a chilling warning, Bashir said his acquittal by an Indonesian court on Thursday was a blow for countries such as Australia and the US – and "heavier blows" would follow.

Spike Stewart, whose son Anthony was one of 88 Australians who died, said: "I just can't understand them saying, 'No, he had nothing to do with it'. The whole world knows he's guilty except for Indonesia.

"Now he'll probably sue for false imprisonment."

Bashir confirmed he might seek damages from the Indonesian Government for the 2½ years he spent in jail.

In a bizarre, rambling speech, Bashir – who has denied any involvement in the bombing – said the judges' decision was "honest and brave".

"This is evidence that even though all this time the West think that they can subjugate Indonesia, there are still some Muslims and Indonesians who have the courage to convey the truth," he said. "I hope the West will open their eyes – and if they remain adamant, there will be heavier blows. This is a blow and a warning for the West."

Victims' families said they were disgusted with the Supreme Court decision and that their Christmas had been shattered.

"He's ruined my life, he's ruined my family's life," Mr Stewart said.

"He's ruining hundreds and hundreds of families in Australia and all over the world."

Former Coogee Dolphins rugby club president Albert Talarico said the families of the six players who died in the bombings were devastated.

"I feel very sorry for the families at this time, that they would make this announcement three days before Christmas," he said.

Bashir, who according to intelligence is the spiritual leader of terrorist group Jemaah Islamiah, had been convicted of conspiracy over the bombings that took 202 lives.

Survivor Peter Hughes was disappointed but not surprised with the court's decision.

"Indonesia is a very corrupt society and I think they feel Bashir could be more of a problem with his followers if they didn't let him off," he said.

Australian Prime Minister John Howard said he was upset – but powerless to intervene.

"It is the court system of another country and we can't change that," Mr Howard said.

"But it doesn't stop us feeling upset and I know there will be a feeling of anger on the part of the parents and loved ones."

BB: Spiritual Leader of a terrorist organisation, Jemaah Islamiah ....sometimes I wish Australia would learn from a certain other country, the correct way of dealing with such terrorist leaders who openly and wantonly espouse hatred and violence.

Ho, Ho, Hotttttttttttt!

[Sorry I know xmas themes are a drag, but, this was too funny not to at least mention.]

IT may be winter in Europe, but Swedish Santas are feeling the heat after a batch of synthetic beards were found to be flamable.

"Ho ho!'' soon became "Oh no" for Santa Claus impersonators after Sweden's national testing institute found a certain model of beard on sale turned into a raging inferno when coming into contact with a naked flame.
[Click read More]

"We placed the beards on a peg in a laboratory. We placed a small flame underneath for two seconds to simulate a situation where Father Christmas gets too near to a candle or match,'' fire expert Per Thureson said.

One of the firms selling the dangerous beards called on customers to return their furry appendages while another told worried Santas they could return them if they wished.

"Taken into account that numerous Father Christmases are not completely sober at Christmas, there is a risk they may hurt themselves,'' the statement added.

BB: Sounds like a really tacky liquor; A flaming Santa

Australian's Outrage: Abu Bakar Bashir cleared of 2002 Bali Bombing conspiracy charges

Indonesian Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir

The Butcher of Bali escapes Justice again.

Indonesia's Supreme Court has overturned a guilty verdict against Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir for conspiracy in the deadly 2002 Bali bombings , a court spokesman said today.

Some foreign governments accuse the cleric of having led a regional extremist group and the move is likely to anger countries such as Australia, which lost 88 nationals in the bomb attacks on nightclubs on the Indonesian resort island.

Bashir was released in June after completing a 30-month jail sentence for being part of a conspiracy behind the bombings.

The Supreme Court, in response to an appeal by Bashir challenging the verdict, ruled that the cleric was not guilty of that crime.

"It has been been granted. He was not proven guilty. Of the 30 witnesses presented during his trial, none confirmed that Bashir was involved in the Bali bombings," Supreme Court spokesman Joko Upoyo said.

The Antara state news agency quoted the chief judge on the panel examining the case, German Hoediarto, as saying the court had ordered that Bashir's name be rehabilitated.

Bashir reacted calmly to the verdict, his lawyer Mahendradatta told Antara.
"His tone was calm when he reacted to the decision," he said.

Western and regional intelligence officials say Bashir was the spiritual leader of Jemaah Islamiah, a Southeast Asian extremist group blamed for the Bali bombings and a string of other deadly attacks in Indonesia in recent years.

The Bali blasts killed at least 202 people, mostly foreign tourists.
Western nations, especially Australia, had previously protested against what they regarded as too lenient treatment of the frail-looking but sharp-tongued cleric.

White-bearded and bespectacled, Bashir has consistently denied any connection to that or other attacks blamed on Jemaah Islamiah.

BB: The man visits the Bali Bombers, he has been recorded actively encouraging attacks against moderates and westerners, he espouses hate. This is the face of Indonesian Justice. Where 1 person get 6 months jail for kilos of Cocaine, and a Australian National gets 20 years for Marijuana for refusing to pay bribes.

The Indonesian Justice system is a disgrace, their internal corruption is a disgrace, this mans release, let alone conviction being quashed is beyond belief.

Western Nations need to recognise their pandering to Indonesian 'moderates' as an attempt to control radicals actually only empowers both Muslim fundamentalists and extremists.

There is a raft of Xmas terrorists warnings for Indonesia and Bali, surely 3 days before christmas is too little too late?

Has your Chanukah been a little dull? Need to brighten things up quickly?

Looking to brighten Up your Chanukah? These little candles are the Bomb!

Sometimes you wonder how such a bad idea ever hit the market.

It seems some bright spark has decided to combine flamable plastic and Chanukah Oil Candles together in one ready to roar fuel/fire mixture.

If you feel your Chanukah hasn't been quite upto to scratch, it's been a bit quiet and you're in desperate need of a few dramas then these oil candles are throughly recommended.

The problem seems to be the 'Ready to Use' Chanukah Oil Candles are erroneously assumed to be jelled extra virgin olive oil encased in 44 glass cases.
In reality the cases are made of flamable plastic. After a few minutes of use, they begin to melt, liquifying into a raging ball of fire guaranteed to light up, not just your window, but probably your neighbours windows too.

A Brooklyn resident reported his entire menorah was damaged, and considerable further damage was narrowly avoided. To think people may light these firebombs and then go off thinking they are safe!

Baruch Hashem no one was hurt, some one needs to withdraw these from the market before a disaster strikes!

Thanks to This Is Babylon, and for further info check out:

JBlogger Interview: Bagelblogger interviews Santa, Ho Ho Hum

Well its 4 days before Christmas and the crowds are hitting the malls; it seems the Red Fat guy is every where at the moment.

Bagelblogger inspired by the Jewish Blogmeisters recent JBlogger interviews, managed to catch Santa long enough to interview him.

Here is the result:

BB: How has Christmas been for you?

Santa: Better than it was for J.C.

BB: Mr. Claus, I'm going to have to warn you straight away. There's a lot of Christians out there that won't take too kindly to a Jewish Blogger interviewing Santa and allowing Santa to make jokes about J.C.
Santa: O.K. I'm sorry, it's just after 2000 years and official advice from the Vatican that the Jews weren't responsible for J.C's death; I thought they might have relaxed a little by now.

BB: Let's move on

Santa: That's what I'm saying.

BB: Err. How is Mrs. Claus?

Santa: Cold

BB: Is that because you live at the North Pole?

Santa: No, She thinks I ignore her all year round, and I only visit her once a year.

BB: Ignores obvious double entente.

Santa: Like, what does she expect? For 364 days I'm absolutely no one, then for 24 hours, I'm supposed to fly around and deliver presents to over a quarter of the World's population then deliver her......

BB: Is it true that Rudolf doesn't actually have a red Nose, that it's actually the rest of the reindeers that actually have a Brown Nose?
Santa: mm Yes But I don't like where this is going.

BB: Can you explain to us Santa why the reindeers have brown noses, yet Rudolf who is at the front has a red nose.
Santa: It's really simple. Rudolf wouldn't show his appreciation, and that's why he's now leading the pack through the frost bitten skies. The rest of the reindeers have brown noses because well their like the Democrats, they follow, they don't lead.

BB: Ok. Now we've all heard your Christmas Chants, err carols, where did the expression Ho, Ho, Ho come from?
Santa: Well its kind of a long story, but let me just say, its not me on that video with Paris Hilton.

BB: So tell us what's with the big red suit?

Santa: Well it's hardly going to be a small red suit

BB: How do you manage to carry all the toys for all the children in your sack?

Santa: It's a very big sack.

BB: Where are the Elves this year? Have they been helping you?

Santa: The Elves received redunacy pay outs, they were superflourous to our needs.

BB: That doesn't sound much like 'Christmas spirit'

Santa: Christmas Spirit has changed this year. Its now sold in the bottle.

BB: You're selling Christmas spirit in the bottle?

Santa: Yes it comes as a special cellar 6 pack.

BB: Why couldn't you envision the elves in your future plans?

Santa: You try running a business with a 110 elves running around going ompah ompah diddle do. The costs were killing us.

BB: What extra costs were incurred?

Santa: All the Elves wanted disability parking

BB: and this couldn't be accomodated?

Santa: They all have Lear jets.

BB: Is it true you refused to deal with the Elves and their Union?

Santa: It was a simple demarcation dispute. The Elves had left the Christmas Workers union and joined the Tranport Workers special section for Elves. Their union is now called the Twelves. The twelves demanded more pay on account of Elves being smaller and therefore specialist workers. We just couldn't afford the pay increases, especially the bribes.

BB: mm. Lear jets for elves,.. Have you thought about updating your sleigh?

Santa: Sure I get one Job a Year, and I'm suppose to blow it all on some import that offers better fuel economy.

BB: Are you saying that Santa's sleigh is actually petrol driven and not driven by Reindeers?
Santa: Let's just say, Reindeers make cool coat racks.

BB: Ok so a new sleigh isn't an option, what about Pimping up your Sleigh?

Santa: Sure, we had a corporate deal organised this year, the sleigh was going to be renamed K_fed's Sleigh. Then it fell through.

BB: What happened

Santa: On its first test flight it crashed and burned, it was horrible

BB: Why not call it Britney Spears Sleigh

Santa: Because Mrs Claus said she was Santa's Sleigh.

BB: Is Mrs Claus the jealous type?

Santa: Lets just say, how would you feel if your man went visitn Christmas eve and gave a billion woman exactly what they wanted?

BB: I've heard a rumor that you were formerly a Coke Ad?

Santa: I deny it. I've never been a coke addict. It's not true. My nose has always been red and bulbous, ask Kate Moss... and all that powder found in my Sleigh, that was Snow.

BB: Er Santa, I meant a Coke Advertisement.

Santa: Oh, sorry about that, no I didn't need to advertise, every one knew I was the biggest in the business.

BB: What was the secret to your success?

Santa: Getting in early and offering home delivery. You know that Pixy Stix [Wizz fizz] stuff you had as a kid?

BB: Err yeah

Santa: It's not wiz fizz it's Columbian Snow.

BB: Are you saying you've been sereptiously feeding Coke to the nation's youth?

Santa: Only if they don't inhale.

BB: What do you think about criticisms leveled at you that you're just an over inflated failed coke ad that has managed to commercialize a Christian day of rememberance?
In actual fact you have sold out the very essence of what Christmas was all about.
Santa: Show me the Money!

BB: When you're busying Ho Ho Ho - ing do you ever think, hey some of these people might not appreciate your values and culture being rammed down their throats.
Santa: No

BB: Do you have a position on Walmart discontinuing the expression 'Happy Holidays' and replacing it with the politically incorrect Merry Christmas?
Santa: Yes. I do have a position with regards to this. My Position is that I'm accepting of all faiths and cultural sensitivities. I'll let any one sit on my lap as long as they spend their money in my store.

BB: Want about people of Jewish Faith? Do you think they want to be continually greeted with Merry Christmas?
Santa: Since when did what the Jews want matter?

BB: Ok, Well what about the over 1 billion Muslims, surely they have a right to an opinion?
Santa: Yes they do, of course, that's why the U.N. favors them and the Arab league over the smaller Nation of Israel.

BB: No I actually meant with regards to Christmas Greetings.

Santa: Oh, I thought they had their own form of Christmas

BB: Really, please tell.

Santa: Well it's more of a wish list than actually getting presents

BB: Please do explain

Santa: Well from what Mahmoud has been telling me

BB: Excuse me Santa. Is this Mahmoud Ahmadinejad you're talking about?

Santa: Who else would it be?

BB: Well there's more than one Mahmoud

Santa: Please tell me you're joking

BB: Well I mean there's more than one guy with that name.

Santa: Unbelievable. So there's more than one guy called Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

BB: Let's move on, What does he want on his wish list?

Santa: He keeps singing this weird song. He keeps going on about the 12th ...

BB: The 12th Day of Christmas?

Santa: No the 12th Imam. He told me not to say anything, but apparently when he was at the U.N. not only did he see an aura over peoples heads, he also felt like he was on top of a pony riding it.

BB: Whoaaah. That's weird

Santa: You're telling me. The guys a few sparkles short of tinsel. You know what he said he wants for a present?

BB: Enriched Uranium?

Santa: I wish, that would be easy, since the Russians started offering radioactive meals as standard on their Business class flights, it has never been easier to transport it.

BB: Ok What does he want?

Santa: A State Funeral

BB: A State Funeral? Is he dying?

Santa: No he wants a State Funeral for Israel.

BB: Ok let's address a few other things Santa.

Santa: Sure

BB: Some people infer that the whole concept of Christmas has been reduced to a rather shallow consumerist frenzy.
Santa: I disagree

BB: About the Consumerist Frenzy bit?

Santa: No about the reduced bit. I've grown 6 waist sizes in the last 10 years alone.

BB: Have you thought about losing a bit of weight?

Santa: What for?

BB: So it would be easier to slide down Chimneys

Santa: Roars with laughter. You actually buy that Crap?

BB: Well no, I'm Jewish

Santa: You're Jewish? What do you do for Christmas?

BB: Interview over weight Fat guys.

Santa: Oh,

BB: Now it would be amiss if I didn't ask you how you manage to seemingly be at many locations at once.
Santa: It's really Simple actually. There's one real Santa and thousands of body doubles.

BB: Am I talking to the Real Santa?

Santa: Well if you're not Mrs Claus is not going to be happy.

BB: What's your impression of Christmas Tree Jews?

Santa: There much like people who describe themselves as half Jewish

BB: Sorry I don't follow?

Santa: Well, it seems to me Christmas Tree Jews basically want to hedge their bets. They've got a foot in the Jewish Camp and a foot in the Santa Camp.

BB: Why?

Santa: If you ask me its pretty smart, you go around telling all your friends your Jewish, so you get to leave early on Fridays, because your Jewish no one at work expects a Xmas Present but due to political correctness all your colleagues buy you a 'Happy Holidays' present...

BB: mm. Ok. Why do you chose to live at the North Pole?

Santa: Because it stops the door to door salesmen.

BB: You get lots of door to door salesmen?

Santa: No, unless you include Mormons?

BB: You get Mormons at the North Pole?

Santa: We used to, until we started inviting them in and giving them milk and cookies.

BB: Why did they stop after Milk and Cookies

Santa: Milk and Cookies are the names of our two Siberian Timber wolves

BB: I'm getting the feeling that you're not always striving to be politically correct Santa?

Santa: Look at it from my perspective for a change.

BB: Sorry?

Santa: All Day long I get absolute Brats saying to me I want this and I want that and I want this.
Then they either vomit on me, pull my beard or start balling at the drop of a hat. All through this I'm supposed to smile for the cameras, then, you tell me I'm not always Politically correct?

BB: I didn't realize it was so hard being a Shopping Centre Santa

Santa: Who said anything about being Santa, I'm talking about representing my

BB: You're in Politics?

Santa: Of course

BB: But you only work one day a year?

Santa: and?

BB: What do you think of US politics?

Santa: If it was up to me I'd give ex US Presidents, the Santa remedy

BB: What's that?

Santa: You send them to a really cold desolate place and hear from them once a year. They expresses their opinions, they copy and plagiarize material for a book, and all this then reminds you why you didn't vote for them in their last election.

BB: Are you speaking about any particular US president?

Santa: Only the US President who couldn't differentiate between scr#wing the Public, Interns, and the truth.

BB: Did you ever think he didn't have Sexual Relations with that Woman.

Santa: I think he was trying to express the truth but got seriously confused.

BB: Please Explain

Santa: Well when he said he didn't have sexual relations with that woman what he really meant to say was he had sex with every other woman.

BB: Alright Santa, its getting late and the time is drawing near. There's one thing I've always wanted to ask you.
Santa: Yes

BB: What do you get for Xmas?

Santa: Mrs Claus gives me a little something.
Last year it was shot gun pellets. They still hurt.

BB: Mrs Claus Shot you ?

Santa: and swore if I ever came home three days later, drunk, smelling of perfume she would make sure I never got to deliver any presents out of my sack again...

BB: I think we'll leave it there Santa.
