    By John Crewdson, Tribune senior correspondent. Reporting and research assistance was provided by Drew Crosby in Madrid MADRID -- The most sweeping criminal indictment to arise thus far from the Sept. 11 attacks reflects a quiet but dramatic change in understanding by investigators here and across Europe of the terrorist organization known as Al Qaeda, and the international Islamic radical-terrorist network of which, they now agree, it is merely a part. As laid out in the indictment, the defendants' alleged activities--from arranging travel and providing introductions to procuring false documents and, especially, moving money--provide the first detailed look at one...

    BALI bomber Umar Patek was seeking a meeting with Osama bin Laden when he was arrested a few kilometres from the al-Qa'ida chief's hideout. The arrest in Abbottabad of Patek, the last major figure who was still at large for the 2002 Bali attacks that killed 202 people, including 88 Australians, has raised a critical question: did Patek give vital information to the mission to kill bin Laden, or did his arrest by Pakistani intelligence risk upsetting the American operation? Patek was arrested on January 25, nine days after stopping in the mountain garrison town on his way to meet...

    On Sept. 11, 2001, the core of al-Qaeda was concentrated in a single city: Karachi, Pakistan. At a hospital, the accused mastermind of the bombing of the USS Cole was recovering from a tonsillectomy. Nearby, the alleged organizer of the 2002 bombing in Bali, Indonesia, was buying lab equipment for a biological weapons program. And in a safe house, the man who would later describe himself as the intellectual author of the Sept. 11 attacks was with other key al-Qaeda members watching the scenes from New York and Washington unfold on television.

    Today is Australia Day. And I believe it is right to acknowledge some Australian heroism from this War on Terror. On October 2003, at Bali, Indonesia, Islamist terrorists detonated a number of bombs in an attempt to kill innocent victims. 202 people were killed. 88 of these were Australians. This makes it, by far, the greatest terrorist atrocity in Australia's history - and it ranks quite highly on the overall list. We remember the dead, but for some reason, in my opinion at least, we haven't really remembered the heroes of that day. While, by no means, all those heroes...

    INDONESIA'S Supreme Court has overturned a guilty verdict against Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir for conspiracy in the deadly 2002 Bali bombings, a court spokesman said today. Some foreign governments accuse the cleric of having led a regional extremist group and the move is likely to anger countries such as Australia, which lost 88 nationals in the bomb attacks on nightclubs on the Indonesian resort island. Bashir was released in June after completing a 30-month jail sentence for being part of a conspiracy behind the bombings. The Supreme Court, in response to an appeal by Bashir challenging the verdict, ruled...

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysia has extended for two more years the imprisonment of a terror suspect linked to al-Qaeda's attempts to produce chemical and biological weapons, saying he has more information about terrorist operations. Yazid Sufaat, a U.S.-trained biochemist and former Malaysian army captain, was arrested in late 2001 as he returned home from Afghanistan, where officials say he was working on a biological and chemical weapons program for al-Qaeda that was ended by the U.S.-led war. Since then, he has been held without trial under Malaysia's Internal Security Act on accusations of being a member of Jemaah...

    FAMILIES of Australians and others killed in the first Bali bombing four years ago have held an emotional service on the Indonesian resort island. About 150 families, friends and victims of the October 2002 blast gathered to mourn at Garuda Wisnu Kencana on the hills overlooking Kuta. The October 12, 2002, bombings on two bars killed 202 people, including 88 Australians, and were blamed on Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), the al-Qaeda-linked terrorist network. Australia's Ambassador to Indonesia, Bill Farmer, today extended Australia's sympathies to victims and families of the blast. He pledged that Australia would remain determined to fight terrorism. "We...

    No quarter in dealing with terrorists By KARL WEINBERG COMMUNITY VOICE On the subject of how to treat terrorists once caught in our fight against Islamofascists, the mainstream media would have us believe that we are torturing the captives by using sleep deprivation, loud rock'n' roll music, female interrogators and such. Many Americans, including me, do not believe this is torture at all. Instead, we believe that much harsher treatment should be used to get information from these terrorists. While the U.S. Supreme Court, Sens. John McCain and Lindsay Graham have said these terrorists are covered under Common Article three...

    HAMBALI, the mastermind behind the 2002 Bali bombing, has been transferred to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba from a secret CIA prison and is expected to face a military trial. For more than two years since Thai authorities captured Hambali, also known as Riduan Isamuddin, and handed him over to US authorities, the Bush administration has refused to comment on his whereabouts. But President George W.Bush admitted yesterday that Hambali, Jemaah Islamiah's operational commander and senior al-Qa'ida leader, had been held in a secret CIA detention system outside the US - believed to be in eastern Europe - along with 13...

    Top 10 Reasons Islam Might Not Be a Religion of Peace Written by Don Feder Thursday, August 31, 2006 A passenger revolt occurred on a Malaga-Manchester flight.  Vacationing Brits refused to fly with two Arabic-speaking men.  This came in the wake of arrests of 21 British-born Muslims who were plotting to blow up as many as 11 trans-Atlantic flights. A spokesman for Britain’s opposition Tory party said the passengers panicked into “behaving irrationally.”  Fancy that, not wanting to fly with members of a faith whose adherents keep trying to blow things up.  Oh, how irrational! Within days of this incident, a Lebanese student...

    The Meaning of 'Islamofascism' The MEMRI Report By STEVEN STALINSKY May 24, 2006 Since the war on terrorism began many new Arabic and Islamic terms including "Fatwa" and "Jihad" have been introduced to Western vernacular. To the displeasure of some Islamists other terms such as "homicide bomber" and "Islamofascism" have also been introduced. An article titled "How the Right Played the Fascism Card Against Islam" on the Web site of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is highly critical of using the term "Islamofascism":

    MELBOURNE, June 12 (Bernama) -- The scheduled release on Wednesday of Abu Bakar Bashir, alleged spiritual leader of the extremist group Jemaah Islamiah, could spark a fresh round of terror strikes. Rohan Gunaratna, Head of the International Centre for Terrorism and Political Violence Research, told "The Australian" newspaper the early release of Abu Bakar would send a dangerous message to terror groups. "Bashir is also the leader of the Majelis Mujahedin Indonesia, an umbrella organisation of jihad groups in Indonesia," Dr Gunaratna was quoted as saying. "He will mobilise them, he will politicise them. He has the credentials because he...
