So remember in 2002 when Islamic terrorists set off bombs in nightclubs in Bali killing 220 people? Well, turns out that the alleged leader of the operation just got out of prison. Abu Bakar Bashir was in jail for 26 months for conspiracy in the bombings. Since he got out he’s been all over the place preaching his particular theology. He claims that images of naked or semi-naked woman on television are sinful and chip away at the moral fiber of Muslim believers.
“So, if I am asked which is more dangerous, naked women or the Bali bombs, then my reply is of course those women in skimpy clothes,” Antara quoted him as saying at a public rally calling for the imposition of Islamic law in Indonesia.
He has previously urged the relatives of the victims of the Bali bombing to convert to Islam. So uh… thanks Abu Bakar Bashir. Now I know that really we ought not be combating terrorism but rather we should be engaged in a war on dangerous hot chicks.
