Bali bombers threaten revenge 'smack down'

What may be the last letters written by the Bali bombers are being distributed over the internet just days before the men are due to be executed.

Balinese prosecutors have arrived in central Java, which means Amrozi, Mukhlas and Imam Samudra are soon to be officially told that the end is near.

Dated October 22, their letters again call for revenge against those executing them.

Mukhlas, or Ali Guhfron as he is also known, implores fellow Muslims to commit to Jihad and use swords and weapons to destroy infidels and those who do not live in Islamic states.

He says he does not fear the death penalty because he will become a martyr following God's path.

Imam Samudra rails against the Indonesian officials organising his execution and asks why do they not understand that America is drawing its last breath?

Writing occasionally in English, Samudra says his enemies will not get away with executing him and will get a "Smack Down!" from the Mujahadeen.

He ends by saying not a single drop of Muslim blood is free.

Amrozi's letter of course condemns infidels too, but it is barely literate by comparison.

The International Crisis Group's terrorism expert Sidney Jones says she is amazed that, even at this late stage, the bombers are still allowed to incite violence from their cells.

"I just think that if there's an increase in the security threat as the result of the executions, the Government is at least in part to blame for allowing these three men access to the media over and over and over again - issuing threats and encouraging their supporters to take revenge and so on," she said.

"It's unbelievable to me that this kind of activity could have gone ahead without any attempt to restrict it.

The bombers are expected to be executed before the end of next week.
