An English translation of the "martyrdom message" video of the Jordanian medical doctor, Humam al-Balawi (Hamam al-Balawi), who carried out a December 2009 kamikaze attack inside the United States military base in Khost, Afghanistan has been released as an "gift" for 'Eid al-Fitr by the Ansar al-Mujahideen/Ansar al-Jihad Internet jihadi-takfiri discussion forums. 'Eid al-Fitr is the holiday that ends the Muslim lunar month of fasting, Ramadan. The original video was produced by Tehrik-i Taliban Pakistan's (TTP) media outlet, 'Umar Studio, and was released in late February. Al-Balawi, who is more commonly called by his nom de guerre, Abu Dujana al-Khurasani (Abu Dujana al-Khorasani), appears with TTP leader Hakimullah Mehsud.

In the interest of providing scholars, students, analysts, and interested non-specialists to primary source materials, several links to free file-sharing web sites where cyber jihadi-takfiris have uploaded copies of the video are below. They are provided for an academic purpose only.
