Al-Qaeda in Saudi Arabia issued their eulogy yesterday, June 11, 2006, for the Emir of al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, offering condolences to the Muslim Ummah and reminding that though they lose their leaders in jihad, Allah is Eternal. The group states: ?If Sheikh Abu Musab is gone there were many leaders before him across the glorious Islamic history who offered what they could to serve their religion to keep the path going, and the jihad will not stop by them.? Al-Qaeda in Saudi Arabia adds that despite his death, Zarqawi had stymied the plans of the ?Roman?s dog,? U.S. President George W. Bush, and mired the American military in military, economic and internal ?mud,? preventing their advance into Saudi Arabia.
