Dr Azahari Husin dies as he lived:

Indonesia’s most wanted man and the terrorist blamed for a string of attacks including the Bali bombings has reportedly blown himself up after police raided his East Java hideout this afternoon.

Malaysian bomb mastermind Dr Azahari Husin apparently triggered a bomb killing himself and two accomplices after police surrounded a villa in the hill resort town of Batu, near Malang, local television news stations reported.

This week just keeps getting better, don’t it?

    1. Yeeee haaw.  It must have been those rednecks the Muslim spokesman was warning Ruddock about.  Apparently they like to take the law into their own hands and are always threatening the peaceful Islamic community.  Oh sorry wrong country, but it was obviously a CIA – Zionist Entity – Crusader conspiracy.

    1. Another terrorist bomber decides to expand his horizons. Excellent! Another question for the statisticians, based on a comment thread from yesterday: is one more likely to be killed by (a) a meteorite, (b)a terrorist, or (c) falling pieces of terrorists who blow themselves up?

    1. My, a villa. These terrorists sure live well. Where do they get their money,hmmm, traffiking in suicide bombers, buying low and selling high? To answer the stat question raised by paco, the greatest chance is be be killed by (d) falling pieces of terrorist villas.

    1. Ernie – and less if he’s banged up just before an Indonesian national holiday. You know how it is…

      50 years ago we celebrated our independence. Welease the wapists!!!

    1. Irony – “malang” is Malaysian Malay for “unlucky”.

    1. Muslim?  Who said anything about he being Muslim?  I really don’t think we should jump to conclusions here.

    1. …and two accomplices…

      Two more innocent victims of the “War” on “Terror”.

    1. Bad news for the chap, Heaven is running out of virgins.

      Or as Robin Williams actually said shortly after the WTC terrorist attacks in 2001:
      “I can see it now: Osama bin Laden Azahari Husin goes up to the gates of Heaven where George Washington comes out, says, “How dare you defile what I have created,” and starts whaling on his ass, then 70 other members of the Continental Congress come out and start kicking the shit out of him.

      Osama Husin will say, “Hey, wait! Where are my virgins?”

      “71 Virginians, you asshole!”

      Or maybe it’s 71 Virgils going, “You got a purty mouth!”

      “Jesus Christ! I put in a call to Jesus Christ!” And St. Peter goes, “Hey Jesus, did you call a cab? Come here!”

    1. It was obviously a western conspiracy.

      Fertiliser, that’s all they are good for!

    1. C. S. Kuppuswamy’s Terrorism in Indonesia – Role of the Religious Organisations notes:

      “‘50 % of Muslim clerics preaching at Friday prayers had often encouraged hatred and hostility against other religious groups’ (Jakarta Post 24 October 2005). […] Islamic organizations [in Indonesia] are not giving their full support to the government in its efforts to counter terrorism. Though most of them condemn terrorist attacks, they are very defensive and keep harping that such activities should not be linked to Islam as it is being done by the western nations.”

    1. Why would anyone link terrorism to Islam just because the terrorists blowing up buildings, beheading innocent human victims like they were sheep at the Festival of Sacrifice, murdering schoolchildren at Beslan or Israeli children in their beds and in their parent’s cars, and committing assorted other acts of violence and mayhem, are all Muslims?  I mean besides the routine calls of so many Imams to kill the infidels and constant boasts by the jihadis to be acting in the name of Muslims everywhere.  Talk about jumping to conclusions!

    1. Alexander Downer on the ABC news about Dr Azahari’s demise…

      good news “not that you’d wish anyone dead…”

      er, in this case I reckon we could make an exception, could we not?

      Posted by kae on 2005 11 09 at 11:08 PM • permalink


    1. Abc radio news sounded regretful and sad when announcing Dr Azahari’s death…
      Probably because he didn’t take any innocent victims with him.They announce Israeli and Iraqi deaths from suicide bombers as “repressed gleefully” as they do the deaths of American troops.
      Sbs had an interesting take on it..”He ALLEGEDLY blew himself up”.

    1. Sigh,

      Call health and Safety. Another work related accident.

    1. Along with suicide bomb recruiter and fellow Malaysian Noordin Top, he is Indonesia’s most wanted man.

      Now he’s Indonesia’s most wanted mess, following his very brief stint as Indonesia’s most wanted fine red mist.
