The Global Islamic Media Front, an al-Qaeda mouthpiece, recently distributed amongst jihadist forums a document titled: ?A Letter from the People of Faith to the Slaves of the Cross,? which addresses what the author believes to be foolishness of the West in its alleged fight against Islam. Citing historical incidents of failed expeditions against Islam, the author states: ?If you read history, you would know that you are hastening your end by your picking a fight with this Islamic Ummah and its glory… Your kings kissed the ground before the Sultans of the Muslims to their humiliation!!?
Any thoughts of weakness or death with the Muslim Nation are to be dispelled, according to the author, as he argues that it is ?destined for glory.? He states: ?Do you make us afraid with your planes and your missiles?? By God if you were to drop all your nuclear bombs on the lands of the Muslims, a billion would remain from the Ummah to chastise you for your misbehavior. The secret of your weakness is your illusion of your power. Do you now see our unarmed children in Palestine repelling your tanks? Do you think that there is but one lion in this Ummah to fight you??
