The fugitive leader of an outlawed Islamic militant group has surrendered to police in Sylhet in north-eastern Bangladesh after a 30-hour stand-off.
Abdur Rahman gave himself up with two others early on Thursday and was taken away for questioning, police said.

He leads the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen (JMB) which officials blame for a wave of attacks in which at least 28 have died.

Prime Minister Khaleda Zia went on national television to praise what she called a blow against extremism.



a good blow to extremists in bangladesh who wants it turned into a 100% islamic state.

Where there is no peaceful way to disagree over public policy, it should come as no surprise that people will turn to violence. Hmm? It seems I recall some fellows getting real piqued over taxation without representation in 1775. So what’s changed?

Bangladesh had a 10% U.S. cotton-goods market SET ASIDE but China griped to the Administration, and viola! the Bangladeshi are now out in the cold, U.S. - wise. When you are one of the poorest countries in the world, it is hard to get ahead. Maybe Bangladesh needs a couple of A-Bombs? PS. I note B/D has a lady PM. As in the new Chilean Prez? The German PM? Do you think this may be a portent of things to come in the US of A in 2008? Wanna bet the GOP nominates Dr Rice?

I was making what I consider to be an oblique response to the description of the “terrorist” giving up after 30 hour stand-off. Look, you’ve probably heard it said that all the leaders of the Muslim countries are PRO West, but that the great majority of the people in those same countries are PRO an Islam guided state. In the case of Bangladesh, the U.S. has made it more difficult for the PRO West PM to steer her country our way. I still contend one man’s terrorist is another man’s hero.
