The Islamic Army in Iraq recently issued a message calling for Muslims to commit to jihad in Iraq by aiding in the distribution of their propaganda, composition and translation of their statements, and ?contacting the satellite programs which talk about jihad and the mujahideen.? The group intonates that the aggression of the ?infidel powers? in Iraq, allegedly disgracing mosques and destroying houses should be the impetus for Muslims abroad to do jihad, emphasizing those that are ?not near us? and not wealthy. Utilizing one?s ?tongue,? then, provides a ?duty? in jihad, and the group suggests that interested Muslims should join their information ranks.
