The Army of al-Sunnah Wal Jama?a [Jeish Ahel al-Sunnah Wal Jama'a] issued a 37:51 minute video titled: ?The Holiday?s Glories,? yesterday, January 17, 2006, featuring a compilation of several attacks executed by the group in Iraq. The film opens with a montage of photographs of the leaders of the respective government in the coalition of nations fighting in Iraq, where a Jewish Star of David is emblazoned atop each head. This is followed by pictures of atrocities in Iraq to children and women, and a series of photos of al-Qaeda leadership, including Usama bin Laden, Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Subsequent to actual footage of mujahideen discussion, rocket attacks and firing of weapons, a two-page statement is displayed on screen stating that jihad is the only course of action against the ?biggest Satan? America and its followers, including the Shi?ite Muslim people. Further, this message calls upon the people of al-Sunnah Wal Jama?a to be patient and engage in jihad either individually, or more desirable, as a single line, to establish a Caliphate in Iraq via the ?same method of the prophecy.?
Attacks depicted in the video range from firing surface-to-air missiles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and automatic weapons, at observed and unseen targets, and rifle fire upon a highway of trucks.
