A group calling itself the ?Group of the Jihadi Soldiers of Islam,? issued a warning to the Arabic channel al-Arabiya, and all the Arabic channels that ?contribute to the disarrangement of jihad and the mujahideen? to cease their alleged ?slander? of jihad and the mujahideen. They specifically point to these channels branding martyrdom operations as ?suicidal operations? as an example of such aberrations. The message indicates that a media war is being launched concurrent to physical war with the ?American tyrant and the coalition,? which is purported to have already proven success by the mujahideen in Iraq.
Concluding the warning, the group reminds al-Arabiya of the bombing of their Baghdad office and states: ?our arms are long, and are able to reach all the traitors and the allies of this nation.?
