A call for the mujahideen, scholars, and preachers of the Sunni people in Iraq, signed by twelve Saudi scholars, was issued to the website of Sheikh Professor Nasser bin Soliman al-Omar, one of the signatories, at almoslim.net , and distributed amongst jihad forums. The message emphasizes the importance of unity amongst the mujahideen brigades, and between those engaged in jihad and the preachers and scholars, as their enemies seek to create fitna, or civil war, within Islam. According to the authors, ?gathering and agreeing on the right thing? is paramount within Islam, and any disagreement between these groups will lead to failure.
Further, the message states that the enemy?s defeat is ?obvious,? and the eminent victory for the Muslims will be achieved through unity and patience.
Some of the sheikhs signing the call, such as Sheikh Nasser al-Omar and Sheikh Dr. Safer al-Hawali are prominent Wahhabi fundamentalists, known for openly sharing their anti-Western ideals.
