Al-Qaeda in Iraq Posts Communiqué Legitimizing the Killing of Iraqis
By SITE Institute
May 29, 2005



Al-Qaeda in Iraq has released a communiqué which attempts to legitimize the killing of Iraqis while waging a jihad. The communiqué argues that any Iraqi who collaborates with non-Muslims is themselves an apostate, and therefore, a legitimate target and an enemy of Islam. The communiqué makes the point an American can be a true Muslim, while an Arab or Iraqi may be an apostate:

?Accordingly, the American Muslim that believes with what Islam had came up with and blasphemes the false God is my brother that we are required to love him and it is a commitment upon us to support him. The blasphemous Arab is our enemy even if he were Iraqi, since the identity that unites the nation is the Islam and only the Islam.?


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