A message sent recently from the land of al-Rabat (Palestine) calls on Abu Musab al-Zarqawi to expand his jihad now being waged in Iraq to the Occupied Territories of Gaza and the West Bank.
The plea, allegedly posted by Abu Mujahid al-Ansari, ?call[s] on you (Zarqawi) and ask[s] you to widen the front as to include Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza… [and we] ask you in the name of Allah, you and all the mujahideen, to urge the Muslim armies to go to Rabat Land and we urge you to hit the Jews where they believe it is their home. We urge you to stand beside those who want one of the two best things (victory or death). We ask you in the name of Allah to prepare the gear and minds towards Jerusalem.?
The message ends with a request for Zarqawi not to neglect the situation in Palestine: ?do not deprive us from sharing your jihad and do not deprive us of the joy of doing anything in the heart of the Jews, may Allah curse them. Let everybody know that the Islamic tide has no beginning and no end and that the Islamic army is one and that the march towards Jerusalem is coming for sure.?
