Offering congratulations to the Islamic Ummah on the Eid al-Fitr, Ansar al-Sunnah issued a message, today, Monday, October 23, 2006, calling on Iraq?s Muslims to support the Mujahideen. The message asks ?all capable Muslims in Iraq…who are able to give, men and women, young men and elderly, Islam needs you, needs all of you, to remove the obstacles from in front of the Tawhid doctrine and defend, worship, and uproot the bad things from the earth.?
Looking at the current events in Iraq, the author sees ?a starting point for the Mujahideen toward their goals,? and an ?awakening of jihad.? The author claims that jihad is the only way to liberate Iraq from occupying forces. Speaking to those who have not yet joined the jihad, the author asks, ?When shall we hear the echo of your strikes, which should follow in the battlefield??
The message maintains that, ?the enemy, who was once bragging about his force, is now dragging his defeat and humiliation, without anything to cover his shame.?
On behalf of the Mujahideen, the author asks Allah for revenge ?for every Muslim whose blood was spilled by the hands of the grandsons of the monkeys and pigs and their helpers.? The message concludes with a prayer seeking revenge against the occupying forces: ?We ask God for our brothers the Mujahideen, support the victory and make us able to hurt Allah?s enemies, for revenge for every Muslim whose blood was spilled by the hands of the grandsons of the monkeys and pigs and their helpers…O God, please grant victory to the worshippers and Mujahideen in Iraq, and everywhere in the Muslim lands.?
