On March 7, 2005, a statement from Al-Qaeda in Iraq [Organization in the Country of the Two Rivers] praises the mujahideen in their battles in Al-Anbar, Ramadi, Haditha, Haklania, Heit, Raweh and Al-Kaiem, against those who ?wanted to destroy the mujahideen and put down jihad and the word of God…?
The group, rejoicing in teaching ?the Americans lessons they will not forget and they never did,? state that the mujahideen are in good health and united and ?eager to win or to die as a martyr, attacking the enemy and rubbing their noses in the dirt.?
