The Mujahideen Shura Council issued a statement today, April 24, 2006, calling upon the Sunni people in Iraq to deny the government, and stand with the mujahideen in support of their jihad. They argue that the ?Crusaders? failed in the Iraq mission, and rushed to shelter by those who pretend to be Sunni to incorporate them into the political process. Further, the message states further to the Sunnis: ?Never side with Allah?s Enemies, conspire on your jihad and your religion, and say what Allah ordered you.?
The Mujahideen Shura Council is composed of eight insurgency groups in Iraq: al-Qaeda in Iraq, Victorious Army Group, the Army of al-Sunnah Wal Jama?a, Jama?a al-Murabiteen, Ansar al-Tawhid Brigades, Islamic Jihad Brigades, the Strangers Brigades, and the Horrors Brigades, collaborating to meet the ?unbelievers gathering with different sides? and defend Islam.
