On March 17, 2005, a member of a Jihadist Internet forum, posted a message on a website seeking volunteers to register as mujahideen ?volunteers for jihad from Arab countries, to break the supply of the American enemy?. A member by the name Akho [Brother] Hadla, list various skills required to become a mujahideed fighter, including; loyalty, knowledge of explosives and disguises, and intelligence information.
The author indicates that he is a mujahid in Iraq who is ?waiting with the brother mujahideen for your response message.? He further states, ?My brothers, the jihad is not for me or anybody else but for the Islamic Arab Nation, and remember that the Arab and Islamic Nation waits for the mujahideen everywhere, do not fail this Nation.?
In addition the message calls upon ?those who know how to draw up [sketch] plans, [to] send me a map of your town in a special [private] message and give the places where the Americans, the Israelis, the Jews or the Christians are located.?
More importantly, the message explains that ?anyone who has western nationality, I will plan for him, the mujahideed will be prepared for the operation and this plan will be the first operation, God willing, if anybody likes to be a mujahideed, Sunday, March 20, 2005.?
Prospective mujahideed are requested to send a ?special message? via the jihadist website.
