New as-Sahab message to Germany

January 17, 2009

Today a new as-Sahab video was made public, entitled “Rettungspaket fuer Deutschland”, (Rescue Package for Germany), probably given in form of a khutba by the as-Sahab speaker Abu Talha the German. The Arabic title “khattat al-inqaz li-l-Almani” however means “Plan of Salvation for the German(s)”, but we shall see what the video will be like, so there will be an update sometime soon.

Bin Laden issues speech “Call for Jihad to End the Hostilities in Gaza”

January 14, 2009

This speech went online today and shows a still of UBL in front of the al-Aqsa Mosque with his message being read (yeah, does sound like him indeed) – in his message to “the Islamic umma” he gives the usual history lessons regarding the conditions of the Arab states and compares post-colonial times to now with the world turning their face away from Gaza and Muslims.

Ayman az-Zawahiri’s speech – English translation of the Jihad Media Brigade

January 8, 2009

The Arabic term “majzara” for “massacre” has been frequently used in regards of the situation Gaza in the past days – not only by the Jihadis, but also by the mainstream Arab media. This just as an info. As follows is the uncensored English translation of AZ’s speech which just has been published by the Jihad Media Brigade within the various forums, for all interested:

 

“These days, the Israeli raids on Gaza came in succession, killing and injuring hundreds, and the whole world including the Arab traitors do nothing but giving empty statements.

I would like in this regard to give number of messages.

The first message is directed to our Muslim brothers in Gaza and the rest of the extorted Palestine, I remind them with what Allah says : [So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad, and you will be superior (in victory) if you are indeed (true) believers. If a wound (and killing) has touched you, be sure a similar wound (and killing) has touched the others. And so are the days (good and not so good), We give to men by turns, that Allâh may test those who believe, and that He may take martyrs from among you. And Allâh likes not the Zâlimûn (polytheists [SIC!!!] and wrong-doers). And that Allâh may test (or purify) the believers (from sins) and destroy the disbelievers.] (3:139-140-141)

Persevere in patience and constancy and stand fast over the path of Jihad, and the whole muslim nation with you, and I assure you that we will not settle down till we take revenge for every killed, injured, widow and orphan in Palestine and in all the muslim lands by Allah’s might. We –by Allah’s grace- are still keen to achieve the oath of sheikh Ousama Bin Laden may Allah protect him when he said : (I swear by Allah the Almighty who lifted the skies without pillars, America and who lives in America will not dream of security until we see it a reality in Palestine and till all the infidel armies get out from the muslims lands). We hope to be able one day to get to help you to liberate Jerusalem and al Aqsa mosque, and to raise the banner of Islam and Jihad over its land.

My muslim and Mujahed brothers in Gaza and the rest of Palestine; what you are facing today is not an occupation trial, limited within an area or a specific country, it is a part in the series of the Zionist-Crusader campaign on the muslim nation, and these raids are a gift for you from Obama before he takes his post, and Hosni Mubarak the traitor is the main partner in besieging and killing you. For in the time that the Israeli aircrafts bombard you from air, he closes the borders with his troops, to achieve the plan of killing muslims in Gaza. The same dirty role which the Jews played in Sabra and Shatila massacres with the battalions’ forces.

My muslim and Mujahed brothers in Gaza and the rest of Palestine; We are with you in the battle, striking the Zionistic-Crusader alliance wherever we got enabled of it, and we are proceeding to you promptly, and soon we will –by Allah’s might- destroy the borders and constraints that prevent us from reaching you, the withdrawal of Americans from Iraq is a good omen for approaching you by Allah’s might. Allah knows we wish to be with you now, protect you with our souls and bloods, me myself I wish I could be with you now to treat your wounded and relieve their pains, for I was granted this honor before, for many years, with our Mujahed and immigrant brothers in Afghanistan.

The second message is directed to Muslims in Egypt, to them I say; It is your duty to lift the siege, you must take this responsibility, for if you arranged a campaign of protests, strikes and demonstrations which do not rest until the siege on Gaza Unwinds, the traitor Hosni Mubarak must yield.

Do you fall short of arranging a campaign of strikes, where the students abstain from going to schools, workers and officers abstain from their work, in order to save our brothers in Gaza from the clutches of the criminal traitor Hosni Mubarak?

And I say to the ardent ones in the Egyptian army; you have a good example in Suleiman Khater may Allah grant his soul mercy, the criminal traitor Hosni Mubarak is using you as a tool to betray your religion and besiege your brothers in Gaza and close all the outlets in front of them, in order to help the Israeli aircrafts to achieve their crimes against them. Till when will you remain soldiers for Satan?! And when will you be Allah’s and His prophet’s soldiers?!

Allah Almighty says : [O you who believe! Be you helpers (in the Cause) of Allâh as said ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), to the Hawâriyyûn (the disciples): “Who are my helpers (in the Cause) of Allâh?” The Hawâriyyûn (the disciples) said: “We are Allâh’s helpers” (i.e. we will strive in His Cause!). Then a group of the Children of Israel believed and a group disbelieved. So We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the victorious (uppermost).] (61:14).

I say to the proud tribes of Sinai: Today is your day, provide your brothers in Islam and kinship with all what they need of provisions and equipments, from the loaf of bread to the tank mine. The traitor Egyptian regime which had assaulted your dignity, honor and sanctities, is the same regime that is besieging your brothers in Islam and kinship in Gaza and colludes with Jews to killing them. Fear Allah regarding your brothers in Gaza, break the siege of the traitor regime on them, know that Allah will ask you about what you have done to help them, so prepare an answer of good deed.

The prophet (peace be upon him) said : (A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He neither oppresses him nor humiliates him nor looks down upon him nor hands him to his enemy, and who comes to the help of his brother, Allah will come to the help of him, and who dispel a calamity from his brother, Allah will dispel a calamity of him in the day of judgment, and who conceals the wrongs of his brother, Allah will conceal his wrongs in the day of judgment).

And he said (peace be upon him) : (do not spy on one another; do not look for other’s faults; do not be jealous of one another; do not envy one another; do not hate one another; and do not desert (shun) one another. And O servants of Allah! Be brothers. A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He neither oppresses him nor humiliates him nor looks down upon him. The piety is here, (and while saying so) he pointed towards his chest thrice. All of the Muslim is sacred to the Muslim, his wealth, honor and his blood. It is evil enough for someone to belittle his Muslim brother.)

My third message is directed to Muslims everywhere, to them I say; This is Obama who was presented to the world by the American lying machine as the savior who will go in change of the American policy, here he is killing your brothers and sisters in Gaza without mercy.

I say to the angry Muslim masses who went out to protest across the Muslim world; Protests are not enough to face bombs, let our Islamic anger to make an influential action that will shake the pillars of the crusader-Zionistic alliance by Allah’s might

.So O Muslims everywhere, obey Allah and do Jihad obligation, Allah says : [O you who believe! Answer Allâh (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he (peace be upon him) calls you to that which will give you life, and know that Allâh comes in between a person and his heart (i.e. He prevents an evil person to decide anything). And verily to Him you shall (all) be gathered. And fear the Fitnah (affliction and trial) which affects not in particular (only) those of you who do wrong (but it may afflict all the good and the bad people), and know that Allâh is Severe in punishment.] (8:24-25).

O Muslims everywhere, fight the crusader-Zionistic campaign and strike its interests everywhere you can reach, help and support your Mujahed sons and brothers in its confrontation.

O Islam’s lions in the Islamic Maghreb, Levant, Arabian peninsula, the faith and wisdom land of Yemen, Khilafah land of Iraq, pride and honor land of Khurasan and steadfastness land of Chechnya: fight hard the crusader-Zionistic alliance and its interests.

O Islam lions everywhere: the rulers of the Muslims’ countries are but guardians for the American-Zionistic interests in the region, who handed Palestine and recognized Israel, for Hosni Mubarak is besieging Gaza, Abdullah Ben Abdul-Aziz made up the farce of religions dialogue to meet Peres in New York, preparing for the total and factual recognition of Israel, Ali Abdullah Saleh converted the dignity land of Yemen to a supply base for the crusader campaign over the Islam’s lands, and al-Maliki begs for the persistence of the American troops to guarantee the continuation of traitors in the government. So dash the hopes and efforts of those traitors by striking the interests of Allah’s enemies the crusaders and Jews wherever and any how you could do.”

Jihadist assessment of the Bombay attacks

January 7, 2009

“An outstanding lesson”, based on the Mujahidin operations in Mumbai, to which the jihadis only refer to as Bombay, has been issued in the forums today. The lengthy article contains detailed maps and provides the reader with an overall strategy assessment, including “who conducted the attack”.

This “extensive study of local, regional and international” factors comprises India as a main enemy of the jihadis who is part of a greater system of disbelief and thus tyranny and injustice against Muslims and Islam in general. The “study” aims to explain the following:

“1. How the attacks took place

2. assessment of the means deployed for the attack

3. who conducted the operation?

4. objectives of the operation

5. and its result”

Translation of RAND study

January 7, 2009

The jihadis have a careful and watchful eye turned to Western sources in general – it is nothing new that various media organs and studies are being discussed within the jihadi forums. For the common visitor, a group has translated the complete, as they say, study on “the end of terror groups” by RAND into Arabic and are disseminating this WORD document within the online spheres.

A note on the “righteousness” of the jihadis – and their religious education

January 2, 2009

The latest al-Qa’ida statement from North Africa, AQIM, is simply a memoranda of their recent operations and task. So it is not really interesting, as most of these “news flashes” contain the usual, such as claiming to have attacked military convois of the Algerian government with the results being listed and so on.

Interesting about this specific memorandum however is, that following the title, we read the following:

” Praise be God, who said: “Fight them! God will chastise them at your hands, and He will lay them low and give you victory over them, and He will strenghten the chests of those, who are believers.” Peace and” etc.

The grave error is, that the jihadis have included, as mostly, to underline their “knowledge”, the number of the Sura, or its name and the number of verse. In this case, the jihadis give us the name of the sura : number of the verse, which is, according to AQIM: at-Tawba : 111.

Well, that is close, but it is rather the 14th verse of the 9th sura. The 9th sura, the surat at-tawba, the “repentence”, is one of the suras which is frequently cited in parts by the various jihadis and plenty of ideological material written by the “Godfathers of jihad”, including ‘Abdallah ‘Azzam, have 9:111 as a basis for their rhetoric and arguments regarding the neccessity to wage jihad on “the path of God” and so on.

Point is, that the jihadis and their numerous sympathizers quickly bark at all those who they believe are misguided and they firmly believe that they are “the people of the truth”, being tested by God in a universal fight of “good vs. evil” – and whenever they make a grave mistake such as this one, the jihadis are very quiet indeed.

Members in the forums should question the religious endeavor of their heroes a bit more and perhaps take a look themselves at the religious sources from time to time…

The statement was issued as a posting in the forums – published by al-Fajr.
