Statement From al Qaeda in Iraq About an American Helper to Our Sheikh Abu Musab Zarqawi
April 1, 2005



Al Qaeda in Iraq issued a statement today contradicting media reports that Zarqawi?s aid was arrested who holds an American citizenship recently in Iraq. The message states, ?When America becomes desperate, they try to tell lies and are good at doing so. An American helper of our Sheikh Abu Musab [Zarqawi], the infidels announce that he is captured. This is what they came up with, this time. As if the helpers of Abu Musab [Zarqawi] are multinationals.?

According to the media reports today, the U.S. military in Iraq is holding an American who was captured fighting for the Iraqi insurgency, as a senior associate of terrorist leader Abu Musab Zarqawi.

In addition, al-Qaeda in Iraq?s statement argues, ?We did not know that our respected Sheikh had this enormous number of helpers. Why they did not capture him until now? Shame on you cross worshipers, shame on your leaders and monks. You are now humiliated.? Lastly, the message ends with the promise that ?Your brothers in al Qaeda in the land of two rivers are carrying on their fight until the Sharia of Allah prevails in all countries and on all people.?

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