Statement from the Amir of the Military Wing of Al-Qaeda in Iraq Congratulating Abu Musab al-Zarqawi on Hotel Bombing
By SITE Institute
March 9, 2005

On March 9, 2005, a statement issued from the Military Wing of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, The Jihad Organization in the Country of the Two Rivers, congratulates Abu Musab al-Zarqawi for fulfilling the ?promise to hit the Jews and cross worshipper several times.? The mujahideen had undertook an ?observation operation which took some time? to discover a ?group of Jews and the Israeli mosad in this hotel.?

Zarqawi?s group claimed responsibility for the attack that was carried out today when a suicide bomber, using a garbage truck as a detonation device, blew himself up outside the Sadeer hotel in central Baghdad, killing at least three people and injuring over a dozen.

Furthermore, the message reassures al-Zarqawi that ?we [the mujahideen] will still be jihadists as long as we live.?

A full translation of the message is provided to our Intel Service members.
