A message posted by a man alleging to be a Palestinian in Iraq, today, September 9, 2005, to a password-protected al-Qaeda affiliated forum, entreats Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi to ?to help us (the Palestinians in Iraq) and become victorious? from the Ghadr Brigade. The author claims that this brigade has issued a warning to the Palestinians to leave Iraqi within the period of one month, else ?they will carry out operations that will lead to our detention and kill us.? Further, the message purports from sources in the Iraqi Ministry of Interior that the Ghadr brigade, a Shi?ite organization, has already placed ?tens? of Palestinians in prison and killed them, in a bid to ?support the Iraqi government's wish in deporting and removing the Palestinians.?
