Indonesian Terrorist Interviewed.

Abu Bakar Bashir.jpgIndonesia has reduced Abu Bakar Bashir, the alleged spiritual leader of Jemaah Islamiyah sentence and he walka free to preach his message of hate and murder once again. The interview gives us a first hand look at how the west can avoid further violence. Submit to and be ruled by Islam.

First Post UK:Just six weeks before last Saturday's terrorist atrocity in Bali, in a jail cell in Jakarta, I interviewed Abu Bakar Bashir, the alleged spiritual leader of Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), al-Qa'eda's main ally in the region, and the group on which western attention is focused in the hunt for culprits.

Bashir was celebrating the news that an Indonesian court had agreed to reduce his 30-month sentence for conspiracy in the 2002 Bali bombings by more than four months, meaning that he will soon walk free…

…Abu Bakar Bashir: The infidel country must be visited and spied upon. If we
don't come to them, they will persecute Islam. They will prevent non-Muslims

SA: What can the West, especially the US, do to make the world more

ABB: They have to stop fighting Islam. That's impossible because it is
sunnatullah [destiny, a law of nature], as Allah has said in the Koran. If
they want to have peace, they have to accept to be governed by Islam

SA: What if they persist?

ABB: We'll keep fighting them and they'll lose. The batil [falsehood] will
lose sooner or later. I sent a letter to Bush. I said that you'll lose and
there is no point for you [to fight us]. This [concept] is found in the

SA: Have you met Osama Bin Laden?

ABB: No, no. I want to though. After my release, I hope I can meet him.

SA: Where will you find him?

ABB: If he still exists - but how could I? I have sympathy for his struggle.
Osama is Allah's soldier. When I heard his story, I came to the conclusion
that he's mujahid, a soldier of Allah.

SA: You will always be on his side?

ABB: His tactics and calculations may sometimes be wrong, he's an ordinary
human being after all. I don't agree with all of his actions. Osama believes
in total war. This concept I don't agree with. If this occurs in an Islamic
country, the fitnah [discord] will be felt by Muslims. But to attack them in
their country [America] is fine

SA: So this fight will never end?

ABB: Never. This fight is compulsory. Muslims who don't hate America sin.
What I mean by America is George Bush's regime. There is no iman [belief] if one doesn't hate America.

SA: How can the American regime and its policies change?

ABB: We'll see. As long as there is no intention to fight us and Islam
continues to grow there can be peace. This is the doctrine of Islam. Islam
can't be ruled by others. Allah's law must stand above human law. There is
no [example] of Islam and infidels, the right and the wrong, living together
in peace.

Note also that as long as Islam is expanding he can wait. My question is about Isolationism. What happens when Islam has expanded and only the west is left? He says Islam must always expand and spread so the answer is quite apparent.
