Bermuda's newest residents sent a message of peace to their neighbors Saturday, days after arriving on the idyllic island straight from Guantanamo Bay. "I'm not terrorist," one of the four Chinese Muslims, 31-year-old Helil Mamut, said in English. "I've not been [a] terrorist," he said. "I will never be terrorist. I want to live peacefully." Seated around a table in their two-bedroom pink cottage, with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, the group looked relaxed, happy and most of all relieved to know their seven years of hell were over. "It's such a happy place, with wonderful people, we don't really want to think about the misery behind us," said 38-year-old Ablikin Turahun, through an interpreter. During their time in the maximum security facility, the four detainees could only look longingly at the sea from the window of their cell. They also spent more than a year in solitary confinement. Now, they can pull back their bedroom curtains, and the turquoise waters off idyllic island await. But they are not bitter. "There's absolutely no hard feelings towards the U.S," Abdulla Abdulqadir, 30, said. "There are some people accusing us, labeling us as dangerous people. ... That's not true at all." Salahidin Abdulahad, 32, and the other three former prisoners want to fish, swim and boat. The four men are single. Turahun, who has a son, is the only one among them who has a child. Making themselves a familiar sight around town is also a priority since their unannounced arrival has sparked a vote of no confidence in Premier Ewart Brown, and is the topic on the lips of many of the 65,000 locals. "I don't know what to think," said one 42-year-old Bermudan. "You can say whatever you want to say, but it's easy to do something here," the resident said. "We don't have a good security system." The four Uighurs - ethnic Turk Muslims from China - hoped they could convince people otherwise. "When we meet people, they will get to know us, and they will know who we are," Abdulqadir said. "We are really happy that we have the opportunity to do that." The mens' lawyer left the island Saturday, and their translator for the past seven years, Rushan Abbas, will leave Tuesday. They will be left in the hands of Bermudan Glenn Brangman, a former military major, who will help to find them jobs. The transfer of the Uighurs to Bermuda has been met by sharp criticism from some island officials who worried that their presence might hurt tourism. Some officials in the United Kingdom, which owns Bermuda, complained they weren't informed. And Chinese officials wanted them returned to China. "This country had the courage and was brave enough to accept us," Mamut said. "We will never abandon this place. We will stay here." firstname.lastname@example.org Read more: Former Guantanamo Bay detainees assure Bermuda neighbors, 'we're no terrorists'
