Another willing candidate for oblivion

One of the principals of the Bali bombing has been sentenced to death. As Reuters puts it:
An Indonesian court on Wednesday sentenced a fiery Muslim militant to death for masterminding bomb attacks in Bali aimed at hurting "white people" and taking revenge on the United States. Imam Samudra responded with trademark defiance, shouting "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) and punching the air when the verdict was announced .
First of all, shouldn’t Samudra have been shouting ‘God is grottiest’? Perhaps he did and the translation’s in error.

Secondly, he’s going to look pretty stupid when he winds up 100% dead with no afterlife, no consciousness, no awareness - just the total end/finish of a deluded life. Er, that's it.
