Al-Qaeda in Iraq Issues Statement that the Mujahideen Should “Stick to Your Flags and Comes Closer to Your God, the Victory is Near”
By SITE Institute
July 18, 2005

Al-Qaeda in Iraq [Tanzeem Qaedat Al-Jihad Fi Bilad Al-Rafidayn] issued a statement yesterday, July 17, 2005, urging the mujahideen to ?stick to your flags and come closer to your God,? believing victory to be close and the operations they mount against the ?crusaders? to be insurmountable. The group claims that they have information from ?intelligence sources? that there have been attempts to quash jihad. According to the message, introducing Sunni involvement in the drafting of the Iraqi constitution, ?tarnishing the reputation? of al-Qaeda in Iraq members, and allegedly lying about capturing Zarqawi aides, are each examples of attempts made to stop the insurgency.

Further, the message assures that the group is in ?good shape? and Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi continues to watch over the operations and follow up on them ?personally.?

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