Members of Islamist Forums Suggest Attacking Tourists To Save Bali Bombers

Members of militant Islamist Internet forums launched yet another appeal in a bid to save the three convicted Bali bombers from being executed by authorities in Indonesia. "You must try and execute a pre-emptive strike before the brothers are executed," said a member of Shomookh al Islam forum, suggesting carrying hap hazardous attacks against tourists or public properties around the country to pressure the government to stop the execution.
Islamic extremists rallied in the Indonesian capital Jakarta today against the imminent execution of the three men. Ja'far Shodiq, brother of Amrozi, one of the three convicted bombers, has threatened a "massacre" if the executions are carried out.
