A holiday greeting from Abu-Musab El-Zarqawi.By James Lewis
In these blessed days
in which the lions of monotheism
fight against the tyranny of the Crusader infidels and the Shi'ite traitors
on Iraqi soil and the brother of apes and pigs [i.e. the Jews] And the
traitor, the son of traitors in Amman.
A number of lions
from the best and most noble brigade
the Al—Baraa bin Malek Brigade
set out on a new operation against the dens [of evil] that were
established on Muslim soil in Amman in order to protect the faith and
raise the [banner] of monotheism.
Following the blessed attack
by the heroes of the nation,
the lions of al—Baraa bin Malek Brigade, against some of the dens of evil
in Amman, we saw fit to clarify the reasons
If we wanted to do so,
there are wedding halls all over the country, with their gates open wide
exploded himself among the celebrants at a wedding feast is a nothing
but a lie.
As for the Muslims who were killed,
we beseech Allah to have mercy on them
and forgive them,
and swear that they were not the target.
We did not intend,
and would never have intended for a moment, to harm them,
even had they been infidels
who carried out the martyrdom operation
meant to target the infidel Crusaders
it was an unintended accident,
which had not been taken into account...
Today, thanks to Allah alone,
we give you a taste of what you have been doing to the Muslims
We tell you that the zero hour has come,
and it is time to settle the score.
We will not stop attacking the Jews
and the Crusaders
in the land
which spills the blood
of the purest faith
This is what befell your ancestors,
the infidel leaders
of the Quraysh [tribe]. [in the time of the Prophet]
Think well of the shame they incurred
in this world
and in the next,
and then remember that you followed them and emulated them,
and even exceeded them in betraying Allah and his messenger....
Oh descendant of traitors,
remember that the one who enabled Abu Mas'ud to overcome Abu Jahal
and cut off his head can do unto you what he did [to Abu Jahal]
