Islamic terrorists in Indonesia have a new target after militant godfather Abu Bakar Bashir threatened holy war against the Buddhists of Myanmar.

Just hours after the threat was reported on radical site Voice of al-Islam on Thursday, two men were arrested carrying pipe bombs on their way to the Myanmar embassy in central Jakarta.

The report quoted Mr Bashir, who motivated the Bali bombers in 2002, saying Myanmar was conducting genocide against Rohingya Muslims in the Arakan state in the country’s west, and that jihad was the only solution.

“These events are all due to our own mistakes because we don’t want to do jihad,” Mr Bashir is quoted as saying. “The Muslims in the Philippines are strong because they want to do jihad.”

The leader, who is serving a 15-year jail term on terror offenses, called upon Indonesia’s “Mujahideen,” (fighters of holy war) to destroy Myanmar as they had destroyed the communist USSR by throwing them out of Afghanistan.

“With the permission of Allah we will treat you and your people just like (we treated) communist Russia, which has gone to pieces, or just like America, which will perish soon (God willing),” he is quoted as saying.

“The Buddhist teaching of love is just a nonsense because in reality it is the Buddhists who have slaughtered the Muslims of Rohingya.”
