The Will of Sheikh Abu Musab al-Suri, to be Executed in the Event of His Capture or Martyrdom
By SITE Institute
November 4, 2005

A will purportedly written by Musatafa Setmarian Nasar AKA Abu Musab al-Suri in November 2004, was disseminated across several jihadist forums today, November 4, 2005, and states that it is to be executed in the event of al-Suri?s ?arrest or martyrdom.? In the document, which al-Suri claims to have written while being ?chased by Allah?s enemies,? he urges for the continued jihad and calls upon reader to seek his book, the International Islamic Resistance Call , for a further elaboration of his beliefs and thoughts.

Al-Suri states that he is captured, he urges Muslims to free their imprisoned brothers and ignore their testimonies delivered under alleged pressure from ?Allah?s enemies.? Further, he explains that he lived most of his life embroiled in jihad with his tongue and will, and it was his intent to publish a ?Complete Works? of his lectures and writings for the ?good of Muslims.?

Media reports indicate that a suspect believed to be Abu Musab al-Suri was captured in Quetta, Pakistan earlier this week. Abu Musab al-Suri, AKA Mustafa Sitmaryan Nassar, or Umar Abd al-Hakim, is an al-Qaeda operative who ran terrorist training camps in Afghanistan and instructs in poison and chemical warfare. On November 18, 2004, the U.S. State Department offered a $5 million for information leading to his arrest. Al-Suri, meaning ?The Syrian,? was indicted in Spain in 2003 for allegedly training al-Qaeda sleeper cells for deployment in Spain, Italy, and France and is believed to have masterminded the Madrid train bombings in March 2004.

A full translation of the will is provided to our Intel Service members.
