ISLAMIC cleric Abu Bakar Bashir has returned to his hardline rhetoric with a call for followers to beat up Western tourists and for young Muslims to die as martyrs.
In the sermon, organised by an Islamic youth organisation and delivered a few kilometres from the home village of convicted Bali bombers Amrozi and Mukhlas, Bashir likened tourists in
Balito "worms, snakes, maggots", and specifically referred to the immorality of Australian infidels.
He called for signs to be erected across
warning tourists they were entering a Muslim area, and directing they cover up appropriately. But in east Java, he urged the Islamist youth to "beat up" foreigners. Indonesia
"God willing, there are none here," Bashir said. "If there were infidels here, just beat them up. Do not tolerate them."
I wonder what the Indonesian Tourist Bureau has to say about this maggot.
