Why? Because the bullets from the firing squad might hurt them.
Defence lawyer Mahendradatta foreshadowed a Constitutional Court challenge next week, arguing the convicted terrorists could suffer unnecessary pain if they do not die immediately when the lethal punishment is carried out.
It is seen as another attempt to delay the executions of Amrozi, his brother Mukhlas and Imam Samudra, who could be executed at any time over the 2002 Bali bombings, which killed 202 people including 88 Australians.
The three will face an Indonesian firing squad, and would be shot a second time if the first bullet does not kill them instantly, Mahendradatta said.
"We are not closing our eyes to the possibility of Amrozi being executed,'' he told reporters.
''(But) there's time when the convicted will feel pain until he is shot a second time.
"Amrozi was sentenced to death, not to be tortured.
"On Tuesday or Wednesday at least we will submit a material challenge to the Constitutional Court about this law.''
The comments could spark anger among families of the 202 people killed in the Bali bombings organised by the three terrorists, who have never expressed remorse for their non-Muslim victims.
"We will seek the execution without pain - we have to encourage the government and legislators to find a way to execute without pain,'' he added.
Lets get this straight: 202 innocent people killed by these animals, many more injured permanently, and these oxygen thieves are unrepentant? Yeah, I could really give a shit if they feel pain from being shot. Hell, in fact, I hope the first round of bullets DO miss the mark. Just to let these dickhats know what pain is like.

Allah just gave them an extra-special place in Paradise for their actions, I'm sure:
Kamal was just 16 when gunmen snatched him off the streets of Baghdad, stuffed him in the trunk of a car and whisked him away to a house. But the real terror was about to begin.
The men realized he was gay, Kamal said, when he took his shirt off and they saw that his chest was shaved.
His pleas went unheeded. "The other two kidnappers took off my clothes by force, and, at that time, I saw them as three dirty animals trying to tear my body apart."
He was held for 15 days, released only after his family paid a $1,500 ransom. He was raped every day. Only once, he said, was he allowed to talk to his family during captivity. "I told my family that I was beaten by them, but I did not dare to tell my family that I was raped by them. I could not say it, it's too much shame."
But don't worry, because George W. Bush is the real enemy. He won't let gays get married. In fact, this attack happend while AmeriKKKan troops were occupying and terrorizing Iraqi citizens. It's only natural that they'd act out this way.

He had been receiving death threats, and told to leave Turkey for his own safety, but unfortunately he chose to stay. The police didn't meet his requests for protection or pursue those who were making the threats, either. This is believed to be the first gay "honor" killing in Turkey. (h/t)

Five Lebanese militants freed from prisons in Israel in exchange for the bodies of two captured Israeli soldiers strode down a red carpet behind a Hezbollah honor guard Wednesday to a boisterous welcome from hundreds of cheering spectators.Part of that "grisly 1979 attack" included the death of a four-year-old girl. That's right. Their big man, the tough guy hero, murdered an innocent little girl.
Kantar, who had been serving multiple life terms in Israel for a grisly 1979 attack, wiped away tears as he stood before hundreds in the coastal border town of Naqoura in southern Lebanon. An honor guard escorted the men to a stage as a brass band played martial music and rows of uniformed fighters saluted.
"We knew that you were waiting for the resistance and it reached you. You came back free and heroes," said Ibrahim Amin al-Sayed, head of Hezbollah's political bureau.
What a bunch of filthy fucking savages.
Update: Via Allahpundit, here's a 2003 account of the attack from one of the victims. It's extremely brutal. The poor woman must be just sick today about this fucker's release.

I toured Turkey in the summer of 2004. There was a NATO summit in Istanbul at the time, and the city was full of posters that, translated, said something like "NATO, BUSH, F*** YOU!" So it was kind of like being in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of DC. There was one thing that did surprise me, though (below the fold).
