COMMUNIQUE No. (6) ISSUED BY ZARQAWI?S ?ATTAWHID AND JIHAD GROUP? - MILITARY DEPARTMENT

MAY 17, 2004

The Military Department of ?Attawhid and Jihad Group? headed by Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, posted a communiqué on a Jihadi website, claiming responsibility for the assassination of the Iraqi Governing Council head Ezzedine Salim, referred to in the communiqué as ?THE TRAITOR OF THE ?UMMAH?, AGENT EZZEDINE SALIM?.

The Communiqué stated that: ?Once again, the Mujahideen from the Death Battalion are back. They painfully struck the enemies of God, to relay the following message to them: ?Their corruption of the Earth, occupation of our sanctities, and the crimes they are committing against our people in Iraq, killing women, children and the elderly, violating honors, destroying homes, pulling out trees, and unjustly imposing a siege, shall not pass without similar retaliation. With God?s permission, the effect of the retaliation shall exceed that of their acts. The Mujahideen were truthful in their pledge to God to support His Religion. They have kept their promise to their Nation - and to themselves - to cherish and lift the humiliation off of it, by aiming such strikes at them.

Another lion from the Attahid Wal Jihad took off seeking one of the rotten heads that betrayed God and His Prophet, who sold their religion and their world to their masters, Americans and allies. Muslims, this time, your lion was Abu Salama Al Hijazi from the land of Al Haramain [Saudi Arabia], that is producing more and more of the lions. Our honorable brother was awarded the killing of the head of the Blaspheming Council Ezzedine Salim, along with his bodyguards and other individuals. He killed and injured as many as he could, thanks to God?.

The communiqué calls upon ?the ?agents? members of the Governing Council and their followers to learn a lesson, and wake up before the swords of the Mujahideen reach them, one after the other?...

This operation announces to Muslims everywhere, that the Mujahideen are supportive of their brothers in Iraq, and that they still possess the power to take the initiative, and strike the enemy, as they judge suitable. The Mujahideen ?confirm that they will continue their strikes, with God?s permission, until the whole world knows that the Crusade on Islam and Muslims failed. It will not succeed, and will not have the fruitful results that the Jews and Crusaders desire, simply because it is a war between faith and blasphemy, right and wrong, justice and injustice. God is supportive of His subjects the Mujahideen and the triumph of this Religion.

The Muslims should know that what the Mujahideen have done so far, through their operations, their sacrificing of blood, money and time, is enough proof of this Ummah?s [Nation] capability to give, confront, resist, and triumph, with God?s permission.

On this blessed occasion, we warn the Muslims against falling in the sin of accepting America and its allies? promises [plans] against the Iraqi Muslims. Muslims must hurry to support their brothers offering what they have, and not allow the American occupation to set foot on their territories. They must resist them in every possible way, to make them feel that the land cannot support them, nor can the sky give them shelter, among enemy peoples who hate them.

God is Greater

Glory be to Him and His Prophet and the Mujahideen...

Signed
