ON THE eve of their executions, the Bali bombers have called for revenge 
against the West and have warned the US to expect defeat.

In separate letters on October 22, and posted on an Islamic website, Amrozi, 
Mukhlas and Imam Samudra have urged Muslims to attack non-believers.

Amrozi declared in his letter that every "fellow Muslim" needed to raise his

He completed his letter by writing, in large print, "Remember: there's not one 
free Muslim blood drop!"

The ABC reported the International Crisis Group's terrorism expert, Sidney 
Jones, as saying she was amazed that the bombers were still able 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

"I don't cry. I leave it all to God," she said as Amrozi and Mukhlas, two of 
her 13 children, waited for the firing squad.
