Al-Qaeda in Iraq issued a 7:28 minute video yesterday, December 28, 2005, in which a brief interview with a mujahid named Abu Obeida al-Muhajir is conducted at the ambush point at the mouth of a river. The interviewer questions al-Muhajir if there is message that he would like to address to the mujahideen and the Muslim people, to which he replies with incitement rhetoric. He states that Muslims? houses were destroyed and women widowed, and prays that the enemies of Allah are captured and slaughtered ?in the way that pleases Allah?. He also suggests that Muslims worship Allah in the way which pleases Him, and states: ?This is one of the most delightful hours in which we live under Allah?s mercy?. He indicates a hidden BKC and Kalashnikov within the trees around him. The remainder of the film contains Abu Obeida al-Muhajir singing verse.
