Islamic State of Iraq Claims Responsibility for Car Bombing of Saudi Al-Arabiya TV's Baghdad Offices on July 26

"The Islamic State of Iraq remains because it is constructed/based upon the skulls of Crusaders and Apostates."

The Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) issued a statement yesterday claiming responsibility for a car bombing outside the Baghdad offices of the Saudi satellite TV channel Al-Arabiya on July 26 that killed four people. The statement discusses, generally, the continuation of the ISI's campaign against the "Safavid" Iraqi government, a derogatory reference to Iraqi Shi'i Muslims. The Safavids were a Turcoman dynasty that conquered and ruled most of modern Iran and parts of Iraq and western Afghanistan during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The statement also calls Al-Arabiya a source of "corruption" and "evil."

Following the April 19 killings of its two senior leaders, Abu 'Umar al-Baghdadi and Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, in a U.S. airstrike, the ISI has launched a series of bombings across the country, including in the Shi'i-majority south. Unlike its focus between August 2009 and January 2010 on launching fewer attacks in favor of larger, more spectacular attacks (namely the four major sets of bombings that made up its "Expedition/Raid of the Prisoner"), the ISI has shifted to smaller scale attacks launched with greater frequency.

The ISI is an umbrella for Al-Qa'ida in the Land of the Two Rivers/Iraq (AQI) and a number of other, smaller jihadi-takfiri groups operating in the country. Background on the ISI, an umbrella for several of the most violent jihadi-insurgent groups operating in Iraq including Al-Qa'ida in the Land of the Two Rivers/Iraq (AQI), can be found in my guest editorial, "The Death of a Caliph: Will the Reported Killings of the Islamic State of Iraq's Two Senior Leaders Spell Out the End of the Self-styled Jihadi State?", on Prof. Juan Cole's Informed Comment blog.

ففي عملية مباركة وفّق الله ليوث دولة الإسلام لتنفيذها، استمراراً لسلسلة غزوات الأسير المباركة في دكّ قواعد المشروع الصّفوي وأذنابه في بغداد، وبعد تخطيطٍ مُحكم واستطلاعٍ دقيق من قبل مفارز الإسناد للأهداف المنتخبة في قلب الخطّة الأمنية لحكومة المنطقة الخضراء، قام بطلٌ من أبطال الإسلام وليثٌ من ليوث دولته باستهداف وكرٍ خبيث من أوكار الشّر والعُهر، وبوقٍ للفساد والحِرابة والدّعاية الكاذبة الدّائرة في فلك الحملة الصّليبيّة على الإسلام وأهله.

ورغم زعم المرتدّين عِلمَهم بالتّخطيط لضرب الهدف وتبجّحهم بمعلوماتهم "الاستخبارية" وإجراءاتهم "الأمنيّة"، فقد تمكّن الأخ المنفّذ من الوصول لمبنى الفضائية الخبيثة بعد اختراق الأطواق الأمنيّة ونقاط التفتيش التي جَهِد المرتدّون والشركات الأمنيّة المتعاقدة معهم في بنائها حول المنطقة المستهدفة المُلحقة بـ"المنطقة الخضراء" المحصّنة، وأدّى انفجار المركبة المفخخة إلى تدمير الهيكل الداخلي للمقرّ بالكامل إضافة للمباني المحيطة والتي اتخذت ملجئاً آمنا لمسئولي حكومة الأقزام السّفهاء، وقادة الأحزاب المرتدّة، ومقرّات الشركات الأمنيّة المجرمة العاملة في العراق.

وإنّنا إذ نعلن مسئوليتنا عن ضرب هذه القناة المُفسدة الخبيثة، فإننا نُؤكّد أنّ هذه الرّسالة التي خُطّت بالدّم والنّار لم تكُن الأولى ولن تكون الأخيرة، وأننا لن نتردّد في استهداف أيّ جهة أو مؤسسة إعلاميّة وملاحقة عناصرها حيثما كانوا، ما دامت تُصرّ على أن تكون أداةً لحرب الله ورسوله وتشويه دينِ الإسلام والصّد عنه، أو بوقاً لإعانة الحملة الصليبيّة وحرب المجاهدين في هذه البلاد، أو منبراً إعلاميّا لتثبيت أركان المشروع الصّفوي فيه..

Islamic State of Iraq Claims Responsibility for Recent Attacks on Iraqi Sunni "Awakening" Militias

"We Heed Your Call, O' Al-Aqsa...We're Coming! -Islamic State of Iraq"

The Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) issued a statement on July 22 claiming responsibility for a series of recent kamikaze bombings that targeted members of Iraqi Sunni "Awakening Council" militias in Radwaniyyah, a district located southwest of the capital city of Baghdad, and the province of Al-Anbar. Forty-eight people were killed in the attacks. The statement was issued by the ISI's Ministry of Information and distributed online by the Al-Fajr (Dawn) Media Center, a shadowy transnational jihadi-takfiri media network that distributes all media material from the ISI/AQI, Al-Qa'ida Central, and Al-Qa'ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).

The ISI is an umbrella for Al-Qa'ida in the Land of the Two Rivers/Iraq (AQI) and a number of other, smaller jihadi-takfiri groups operating in the country. Background on the ISI, an umbrella for several of the most violent jihadi-insurgent groups operating in Iraq including Al-Qa'ida in the Land of the Two Rivers/Iraq (AQI), can be found in my guest editorial, "The Death of a Caliph: Will the Reported Killings of the Islamic State of Iraq's Two Senior Leaders Spell Out the End of the Self-styled Jihadi State?", on Prof. Juan Cole's Informed Comment blog.

فبتوجيه من وزارة الحرب بدولة العراق الإسلاميّة وضمن سلسلة العمليّات المباركة التي تمّ التركيز فيها على رؤوس الردّة وصحوة النّفاق والتي نجحت بفضل الله في قطف الكثير من الرؤوس الخبيثة العفنة، والتي سيتم الإعلان عنها بإذن الله في بيانات عسكرية لاحقة، انطلق بطلان من أبطال الإسلام وطّنا نفسيهما للموت عاقدَين العزم على إجراء البيع مع ربّ العالمين في غزوتين اسشهاديّتين مباركتين متزامنتين..

استهدفت العملية الأولى المقرّ الرّئيسي لمجرمي صحوة الردّة والنّفاق في مدينة القائم بولاية الأنبار العصيّة أثناء اجتماع رؤوس الكفر لحرب الإسلام والكيد لأهله في تلك المناطق، وكان الأخ الاستشهادي قد رابط على هذا الموقع بعد استطلاع عناصر الإسناد وانكشاف موعد الاجتماع، حيث تمكّن بطلنا من اقتحام المقرّ والانغماس في تجمّع المرتدّين داخل البناية المحصّنة مفجّراً حزامه النّاسف فيهم، وأدّت قوّة الانفجار لمقتل وإصابة ما لا يقل عن عشرين مجرما بينهم رؤوسٌ للكفر ممّن ولغت أياديهم في دماء المسلمين وحرب دين الله وشرعه.

أمّا العمليّة الثانية فكان الهدف فيها تجمّعاً لقطعان مرتدّي صحوة النّفاق في جنوب بغداد بمنطقة الرضوانيّة وقد تكالبوا لقبض السّحت الذي باعوا لأجله دينهم وخسروا آخرتهم، حيث انغمس ليث دولة الإسلام وسط القطيع بعد أن أعمى فتُات المال الذي تُلقيه إليهم الحكومة الصّفويّة أعينهم وجاءهم عذاب الله بأيدي المؤمنين من حيث لم يحتسبوا، فكانت عمليّة مباركة سقط فيها ما يزيد على المائة وعشرين عنصراً بين قتيل وجريح إصابة أغلبهم خطيرة، وتناثرت أشلاء جيفهم في محيط المكان.
فالحمد لله على توفيقه وتسديده، ونسأل الله لأخوَينا القبولَ شهداء في سبيله، وأن يجزل لهما الثواب العظيم الذي وعد به عباده، وأن يجعل من دمائهما سبباً لتثبيت من بعدهم من المسلمين على درب الجهاد والشهادة، إنّه وليّ ذلك والقادر عليه.

Afghanistan Taliban Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid Confirms Capture of U.S. Military Member in Logar Province


Update (July 27): NATO has reported that the body of one of the two U.S. soldiers recently reported missing in Afghanistan, 30-year-old Justin McNeley, was found.

An Afghanistan "Quetta Shura" Taliban senior spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, has confirmed the capture by his movement of a United States Navy member in Logar province. Some reports say that two U.S. Navy members were captured, though other reports say the second man died from wounds sustained.

The Afghan Taliban or the network headed by former U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence asset Jalaluddin Haqqani currently holds prisoner another U.S. soldier, Bowe Bergdahl, who has been featured in three videos produced by the Taliban's Al-Emirat (The Emirate) media outlet.

ذبیح الله مجاهد: الجندي الأمريكي الأسير حي ومع المجاهدين

صفحة (صوت الجهاد) - عمران خلیل – 25/7/2010

خرج جنديان أمريكيان في لباسهما العسكري يوم أمس بسيارتهما من مقرهما العسكري ودخلا إلى منطقة "دشت قلعة" بمديرية تشرخ بولاية لوجر التي هي تحت سيطرة مجاهدي الإمارة الإسلامية، واختفيا في المنطقة المذكورة، كما عثر على سيارتهما على حدود كابل في ولاية لوجر ، وبعد الحادث أعلنت القوات المحتلة في إذاعات إف إم المحلية بدفع مكافأة عشرين ألف دولار أمريكي لمن يدلي معلومات عنهما تأدي للوصول إليهما.

وحول تفصيل الحادث صرح الناطق بإسم الإمارة الإسلامية ذبيح الله مجاهد في إتصال هاتفي لموقع الإمارة قبل قليل: (وقعت سيارة تابعة للقوات الأمريكية المحتلة يوم أمس في كمين منصوب من قبل مجاهدي الإمارة الإسلامية حينما كانت تمر من منطقة دشت قلعة بمديرية تشرخ بولاية لوجر، حاول المجاهدون إلقاء القبض عليهما لكنهما أبديا المقاومة حيث قتل أحدهما نتيجة تبادل إطلاق النار معهما، وأسر المجاهدون الآخر مع تجهيزاته العسكرية حيا.)

أضاف ذبيح الله مجاهد بأنه لا يريد إعطاء معلومات كاملة حول هوية الجندي الأسير لوسائل الإعلام حاليا، وسيفصح عن التفاصيل الكاملة بهذا الخصوص للإعلام لاحقا.

وحول سؤال المجاهد بأن القوات الأمريكية تحاول عن طريق الجو والبر الوصول إلى الجندي الأسير، فما هي خطة المجاهدين في هذه النقطة بالذات؟

أجاب المذكور: المجاهدون نقلوا الجندي الأسير من قبل إلى مكان آمن ومصون، وإن شاء الله لن تفلح مساعي العدو في العثور عليه.

في العام الماضي أيضا أسر المجاهدون جنديا أمريكيا (برغ دال) في ضواحي ولاية بكتيكا، ولا زال أسيرا مع المجاهدين

Interview with Afghanistan Taliban Military Commander in Wardak Province

Below is a translation by a cyber jihadi-takfiri of an interview taken from an issue of the Afghanistan "Quetta Shura" Taliban's monthly Arabic-language Internet magazine Al-Somood ("steadfastness"). The interviewee is a military commander from the province of Wardak, specifically the Maydan Shahr district.
________________________________

Al-Somood Interviews The Military Official For The Maidan Shahr District

Sheikh Nur ul-Haqq Mujahid bin Mohamed, from the Maidan Wardak province. Born in the year 1386H in the village Mohamed Nur Kheil in the Zimnio area of Jalreez district.

Education

He received his elementary education in the local schools in his birthplace then immigrated to Pakistan where he continued his learning in different schools until graduating from the Imdad ‘Ulum Shari’a school in Peshawar in 1413H, graduating with the highest certificate. After his graduation, he began teaching students and conducting preaching and reform activities in his area, laying the cornerstone for a Sharia school and establishing a student association by the name of Ahl al-Sunna wal-Jama’a in the Maidan Wardak district.

Joining the Islamic Emirate Caravan

Sheikh Nur ul-Haqq joined the caravan of the Islamic Emirate upon its establishment and assumed a number of administrative responsibilities in different regions of Afghanistan, rising to become commander of military security in the Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan. After the American occupation of Afghanistan, he began Jihad against the Americans and their helpers and trained hundreds of Mujahideen and sent to the combat zone.

One year after the American invasion, the leadership of the Islamic Emirate entrusted him with general supervision of all military formations in the Maidan Wardak province. His Excellency enjoys extensive military experience in addition to a broad awareness and understanding of political issues and their analysis.

Al-Somood magazine has conducted an interview with his Excellency about the military situation in Maidan Wardak to present this to its readers.

Question: Gracious Sheikh, we would like to present a picture, even a brief picture, on the military situation and Jihadist activity in Maidan Wardak province.

Answer: In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful, praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, a happy outcome to the Pious, prayers and peace upon the best of creation, the noblest Prophet and Messenger, and upon his family, and companions and all those guided by him.

By the Grace of Allah, High and Exalted, the military situation in the Maidan Wardak province is completely to the advantage of the Mujahideen. The co-operation of the people and their standing with the Mujahideen has advanced the combat activities of the Mujahideen and exposed the schemes of the crusader enemy to failure and cast fear into them.

You know that the province of Maidan Wardak is tantamount to the main gateway to the capital Kabul. The Mujahideen have been able to achieve a military advance to reach this strategic gateway and thereby established a strong front on the heights overlooking Kabul city. With great ease, the Mujahideen are able to attack this main corridor which crosses the province and connects Kabul with other main cities like Ghazni and Qandahar. We can say that the Mujahideen have expanded their control over 85% of the territory of Maidan Wardak while the crusader enemy is held up and besieged in the provincial and district buildings.

Question:Where are the crusader invader forces concentrated in Maidan Wardak province and to what extent have their schemes in the province succeeded?

Answer: The province of Maidan Wardak is composed of 9 districts and the crusaders have a military base in the province capital as well as scattered military positions along the main Kabul-Qandahar corridor that dissects the country. Despite the security fortifications that surround their military points along this corridor, their military columns are subjected to the campaigns of the Mujahideen which strike at them.

The Mujahideen are trying to block this main corridor and close it permanently. Battles between the Mujahideen and crusaders occur to control the corridor and the two sides will swap control of it during the day while at the night the Mujahideen will take complete control of it and all the roads leading to the district. Public vehicles and commercial convoys can cross the corridor at any time during the night, but the trucks of the vehicles of the Americans and their helpers are blocked completely.

Whenever the Mujahideen launch attacks on the crusaders in the main corridor they seize great amounts of booty and inflict huge casualties. The vehicles and other military equipment that we have in our possession, all of it were seized by the Mujahideen as booty.

Question: Where are the fields of your military operations and what kind of attacks are you undertaking against the enemy and their bases?

Answer: I said previously that we can attack the enemy at any place in Maidan Wardak province, but in order to harass and weaken the enemy we concentrate on high-impact raids against the military convoys that pass through the main corridor. At the beginning of Mujahideen operations in this province, the Mujahideen were few in number and the enemy possessed vast military resources. So we were planting mines and carrying out surprise attacks. These methods brought positive results and sapped the enemy’s strength. Now the number of Mujahideen has increased and the enemy is overcome by weakness. So in addition to planting mines, launching surprise raids and setting up ambushes, we also carry out military clashes.

As a result of these operations, the enemy has sustained huge losses in soldiers killed and tanks destroyed and loss of various equipment as booty. The proof of what we say are these Ranger military vehicles and Surf vehicles each of which carry markings indicating that they belonged to the military units and brigades of the army of the puppet administration in Kabul.

Question:Additional American troops have arrived to Maidan Wardak this year. What impact has this had on the operations of the Mujahideen?

Answer: The dispatch of additional American troops to Maidan Wardak province has had no negative impact on Mujahideen operations. Rather, it has increased Mujahideen operations because the arrival of new soldiers has meant that the number of military targets has doubled. The spine of the military equation is soldiers’ morale not their number. What ails the Americans in Afghanistan is the collapsed morale of their frightened soldiers. This ailment cannot be evaded by increasing the number of troops.

Question: If you please could, we would like you to give us brief information on your combat operations in the past three months.

Answer: Through the Grace of Allah, this year was a bloody and violent year for the Americans and their crusader allies. The American invaders acknowledge this truth. This was a year of violent front-lines and ferocious battles in all parts of Afghanistan and especially Maidan Wardak, where the operations temp of the Mujahideen increased.

During the past three months, our area of operations has encompassed wide regions from Sarbil to Sheikh Abad and Salar all along the main corridor. We have killed large numbers of crusaders and destroyed their armored and other military vehicles. We have burned many supply trucks in addition to killing many lackeys and forcing the crusaders and their agents to stay besieged in their holes.

Question:What is the effective military strategy that must be taken to weaken the morale of the enemy?

Answer: An effective military strategy varies from province to province. For example, in Kunar and Nuristan provinces, the most suitable military method is a military clash because those two provinces possess a geographic situation suitable for this military strategy. Meanwhile in Helmand and the southwest of Afghanistan the preferred method is to plant mines and use explosives because the terrain of those areas is desert terrain which does not afford the Mujahideen secure places to hide.

As for Kabul, martyrdom operations and surprise attacks are best because the open concentration of large numbers of invaders there gives the Mujahideen an opportunity to launch those kinds of campaigns against their bases and barracks.

Praise be to Allah, the Mujahideen will take advantage of the methods which suit their geographic situation and injure the enemy the most.

Question:You are situated in Maidan Wardak province close to the capital Kabul. The enemy is able to move fast to assist and rescue its personnel. How are you able to launch attacks on the enemy’s mobile targets?

Answer: First of all, I will say that our battle with the enemy relies upon the aid of Allah, the Exalted and Sublime, and faith in Him. Our Jihad in the cause of Allah continues with His aid and help, not with material things or modern, fabricated methods. If it were not so, how could the isolated Mujahideen in wounded Afghanistan confront 45 advanced nations with huge armies, armed with advanced weapons? This is a confrontation in which the Mujahideen will be victories, Allah willing.

We accept that our resources are limited and that our capabilities are less than the huge capabilities of the enemy. Indeed there is no comparison between the Mujahideen and the enemy.

Yes, in answer to your question I say that Maidan Wardak is located a stone’s throw away from Kabul and that the enemy can easily assist his army during a battle there. But I must make clear that the enemy has sustained the greatest losses in this province, many of his armored vehicles have been destroyed and the necks of many the arrogant and haughty ones have been broken on its rocks.

Question: What is your view regarding the dispatch of more foreign troops to Afghanistan and how do you analyze this situation?

Answer: I have previously indicated that victory in war hinges upon the high-morale of soldiers not on an increase in their numbers. The number of American soldiers has been continuously on the increase throughout the war, from 8,000 in the beginning to almost 70,000 in the past year. But Mc Chrystal is requesting 30,000 more additional troops. If victory in war hinged on increasing the number of soldiers, then America would have achieved something in the past year, 2009. But, by admission of the Americans, that the losses among their soldiers during this past year have been more severe and that the Mujahideen have made greater progress.

Question: When will the Mujahideen be able to dislodge the occupation forces in Afghanistan and make them flee (the country)?

Answer: When will the Americans and their crusader allies leave Afghanistan? This matter is among the secrets known only to Allah. But, by my reading of the current situation, it is clear that the date of their flight is imminent.

Their analysts and politicians are reporting the speedy defeat of the Americans and the victory of the Mujahideen in Afghanistan. As for the Mujahideen, they must continue to wage jihad against the American and crusading invaders in order to establish an Islamic regime. The moment of picking the fruit of their labor has approached, Allah willing. They see with their eyes that by the blessing of their jihad the enemy will be broken and will drag their tails defeated and broken and in flight, just like the arrogant, tyrannical English and Russian invaders were defeated and broken.

Al-Somood:Your Excellency Sheikh! We thank you for your speaking with us and your open-mindedness to our questions. We beseech Allah to grant you success in your Jihad.

The leader: I thank you also.

Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan Blames Ethnic Unrest in Krgyzstan on "Black Forces" Seeking to Sow Strife Among Muslims

Tahir Yuldashev, amir (leader) of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan emerges from a meeting last year with the amir of Tehrik-i Taliban Pakistan (TTP; Taliban Movement of Pakistan), Hakimullah Mehsud.

The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), a group composed of several thousand fighters that is led by Tahir Yuldashev, who is also known as Muhammad Tahir "Faruq (Farouq)", has released a statement about the ongoing attacks on Uzbeks by some Kyrgyz groups and communal tensions that these attacks have caused. The English translation is run below without edits.

The IMU is based primarily in the Waziristan region of Pakistan and is allied with Tehrik-i Taliban Pakistan.
______________________________

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful:

(يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَى وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ) 13 سورة الحجرات
"O you men! surely We have created you of a male and a female, and made you tribes and families that you may know each other; surely the most honorable of you with Allah is the one among you most careful (of his duty); surely Allah is Knowing, Aware" Sura Alhujarat / 13

Our oppressed Muslim brothers and sisters!

The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan brings deepest condolences to the oppressed Muslim community in south Kyrgyzstan.

This tragedy is the result of another bloody conspiracy of the heresy, ruling the world. The ordinary Muslims fall victims to the fire, initiated by the disbelievers.

The instigators of this conspiracy are Jews, Christians, USA, Russia and other "black forces".

(يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَاللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ) 9 سورة الصف
"They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths but Allah will perfect His light, though the unbelievers may be averse". Sura Alsaf / 8

Whatever their efforts are, they are not able to put out Allah’s light!

These days the people of the world witnessed the intrigues of aggressors from USA, Russia and their puppet regimes, and also got to know the bitter fruits of democracy - “the regulations of heresy”.

Simple women, children and old men became the victims of this infamous, mean and bloody adventure. We are the witnesses of that how entire peoples become victims to the power contests of the contemporary “pharaoh's”.
Do not wait for help from USA, do not wait for help from Russia or do not wait for help from UN! The real help is to follow the rules of Islam, which our Lord by His favor granted it to us and to implement its laws into all spheres of our life.

Our real salvation is to return to our genuine religion and follow its rules.

The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan urges all Mavarounnahra Muslims, regardless of nationality, to turn away from the mundane fusses and to embark on the path of jihad against the enemies of Islam!

Allah in the Koran made jihad an obligation.

(كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِتَالُ وَهُوَ كُرْهٌ لَكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰ أَنْ تَكْرَهُوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰ أَنْ تُحِبُّوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ) 216 سورة البقرة
"Fighting is enjoined on you, and h is an object of dislike to you; and it may be that you dislike a thing while it is good for you, and it may be that you love a thing while it is evil for you, and Allah knows, while you do not know" Sura Baqara / 216

Allah in the Koran speaks:
(إِلَّا تَنْفِرُوا يُعَذِّبْكُمْ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا وَيَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ وَلَا تَضُرُّوهُ شَيْئًا ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ) 39 التوبة
"If you do not go forth, He will chastise you with a painful chastisement and bring in your place a people other than you, and you will do Him no harm; and Allah has power over all things" Sura Altawba / 39

And the prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) said:

"When you deal with interest, and hold fast to the tail of the cow, and become contented with agriculture, and you leave Jihad in the Way of Allaah, Allaah will permit your humiliation and will not lift it from you until you return to your deen".

All reasons for those misfortunes, to which all Moslems of the present day are mentioned, here!

Thus, we won't remove the influence of American and Russian occupiers on our earth, until we establish the united Islamic state, heresy will play by our religion, by our conscience, by honor, by rights and by dignity as it will wish.

The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan will do its best, by the will of Allah, to assist all Muslims of Central Asia and Kyrgyzstan in particular.

Peace, blessing and mercy of Allah be upon you!

American and its allies with the representatives from a number of other courtiers have gathered apparently to launch Kabul conference, the latest in succession of futile efforts, the ones ended into a failure as in the past, in order to hand over the military and administrative control of the country to the coming surrogate administration and review and monitor the past assistance evaluation.

Despite the fact that the US forces have deployed 1200 troops into the area to maintain a one-day security measure, while Kabul has been kept under constant observation by both aerial and ground forces for the past few days, barring the people from entering and leaving Kabul, Mujahideen targeted Kabul international airport which turned the moments of peace and safety of the US invaders into disaster and chaos and made the participants of the conference scared to death, has proved a categorical manifestation of Mujahideen’s military upper hand .

The International Community, which is to launch Kabul conference in a couple of days under the name of handover of the economic and administrative control to the stooge regime, has announced that 4.2 billion worth of drugs and other stuff have been smuggled out of the country via air over the last three years.

On the other hand, country’s security measure from military aspect, apart from financial corruption and malpractice, is so unreliable and unstable that the head of the country, in spite of the existence of 150000 occupation troops in the country, is unable to travel by land, he is to fly from one place to another into Kabul city, even for shorter distances such as Intercontinental Hotel in the heart of Kabul city.

With all the shortcomings and inabilities, the Kabul puppet and humiliated regime, by the order of America, is to be imposed on the Afghan masses, while the International Community, by its own admission, has declared the handover of the economic control to the failed, corrupt and disgraceful regime.

Kabul so-called and futile conference has proved that the America has lost the initiatives and is unable to resolve Afghanistan issue, whatever actions are taken in this regard have already been doomed to a failure.

As a matter of fact, the strategy being worked out by America and the actions taken by it are only to prolong war in Afghanistan and ensure the stay of the foreign invaders in Afghanistan; which is what the Afghan Islam-loving masses will never compromise on and will continue to much strongly resist against.

It is evident from the vague and terrible agenda of the conference in a sense that the America and the International Community intend to pull out of Afghanistan and pass the back, pinning all the coming destructions, humiliation and defeat on Kabul puppet regime.

How can a five-hour long stressful conference in Kabul whose some of the foreign participants, under the death threat, disembarked in Kazakhstan, while the others took refuge in Bagram airbase who were flown back into Kabul city, come up with succinct and rational solution to the financial, economical, administrative and security problems; which have not been resolved by the US invaders over the past 10 years

In fact, by making such futile efforts as holding Kabul conference, America wants to distract the global attention from its shameful defeat in Afghanistan, not to put an end to the agony and tragedy of the people in Afghanistan.

Thus, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, as it has always done, regards the US invaders and their allies the only and main cause of the distraction, chaos, disorder and misfortune in Afghanistan; and considers the key solution to all this the unconditional and immediate withdrawal of all the occupation forces from Afghanistan.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is aware of the decisions made in the Kabul conference and the America’s prolongation of the war and its chaotic strategy, therefore call on the world not to support and rubberstamp its plans and decisions blindly but offer logical solution to help resolve the issue which may be satisfactory for both Afghan masses and the foreigners.

The Islamic Emirate will, by the virtue of Allah’s bounty and his help and in close collaboration with honor-loving Afghans, strive for the setup of the independent Islamic system; nevertheless, any honest and selfless service offered in this respect may be welcomed.

Baluchi Jundullah Claims Responsibility for Double-Kamikaze Bombings at Zahedan Shi'i Mosque, Revenge for 'Abdul Malik Rigi's Execution

Muhammad Rigi (left) & 'Abdul Basit Rigi, the two kamikaze bombers who attacked the central mosque in Zahedan in Iran's Sistan-Baluchistan Province.

The Iranian Baluchi (Balochi) Sunni insurgent group Jundullah (God's Soldiers; Jondollah) has claimed responsibility for the double kamikaze bombing at the central mosque (called the "grand mosque" in the Iranian government's English-language Press TV) in the city of Zahedan in the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchistan on July 16. The group issued a statement in multiple languages, saying the attacks were in retaliation for the Iranian theocracy's late June hanging of the former Jundullah leader, 'Abdul Malik Rigi. Below is the Arabic version of the group's statement. Photographs were also released by Jundullah of the two bombers, who were named as Muhammad Rigi and 'Abdul Basit Rigi. Some reports say that the two were brothers of the late 'Abdul Malik Rigi.

Muhammad Rigi

The bombings killed 28 people (so far). The group's statement promises to continue the struggle for Balochi rights, despite Iranian government repression against the predominantly Sunni Muslim minority population.

'Abdul Basit Rigi

The Iranian government has unsurprisingly accused "Israel and the United States" of masterminding the most recent Jundullah bombing. In a televised "confession," the late 'Abdul Malik Rigi said that he had met with high-ranking U.S. military officials, including in Afghanistan, about launching operations in Iran. Despite the alleged details of the plan, which he laid out in some (alleged) detail, he was unable to name these officials. It is suspected that he made this "confession" under duress. The Iranian government uses torture routinely, as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have documented.

'Abdul Malik Rigi

In February, Jundullah's members elected a new leader to replace 'Abdul Malik, Muhammad Zahir Baluch. The group has also denied the Iranian government's claims that it is supported by Israel and the United States, as well as claims that it is allied with Al-Qa'ida Central (AQC). The major transnational jihadi-takfiri groups, including AQC, have never endorsed Jundullah, nor are the group's statements published in the section for "official statements" on jihadi-takfiri Internet web forums and web sites.

Islamic Emirate of the Caucasus Appoints a New Supreme Qadi to Replace Anzor Astemirov, "Amir Sayfullah"

Anzor Astemirov, "Amir Sayfullah," the late supreme qadi of the Islamic Emirate of the Caucasus

The Islamic Emirate of the Caucasus (IEC), a coalition of Caucasian Muslim insurgent groups aided by some foreign fighters, has announced the appointment of a new supreme judge (qadi) to replace the former supreme qadi, Anzor Astemirov, a.k.a. "Amir Sayfullah (God's Sword)" and the young charismatic preacher and jurist Sa'id Buryatskiy, who were killed in February-March. The new IEC qadi is Sayfullah Gubdenskiy, the supreme amir (commander, leader) in the central sector of Dagestan. The statement announcing his appointment was signed by the IEC's amir al-umara' (supreme leader), Dokku (Dokka) Umarov.

The IEC has suffered a number of significant losses this year. In addition to the killings of Astemirov and Buryatskiy, its senior military commander Amir Magas was captured and a number of its regional commanders have been killed by Russian security forces and its regional Caucasian allies. Two commanders, Amir 'Abd al-Rahman and Amir Yasir al-Sudani ("the Sudanese"), were killed late June.

The official IEC statement below is in Russian:

Somalia's Harakat al-Shabab al-Mujahideen Claims Responsibility for Deadly Bombings in Kampala, Uganda

Still from Harakat al-Shabab al-Mujahideen's September 2009 video, "Labbayk Ya Usama" (We Heed Your Call, O' Usama).

UPDATE (July 17): The amir of Harakat al-Shabab, Mukhtar Abu al-Zubayr (al-Zubeyr) has congratulated the battalion within the movement responsible for the attack. It is named after Salah 'Ali Salah al-Nabhani, a senior Al-Qa'ida Central operative in East Africa who was killed by United States special forces in September 2009.

The large Somali jihadi-insurgent group Harakat al-Shabab al-Mujahideen (Movement of Warrior-Youth; Al-Shabaab) released a statement in English yesterday (July 14) via its media outlet, the Al-Kata'ib (Brigades) Media Foundation, claiming responsibility for last Sunday's (July 11) bombing of a cafe in Kampala, Uganda. At least 74 people were killed and another 70 wounded in the twin blasts, which appear to have been kamikaze attacks. A senior Harakat al-Shabab spokesman, 'Ali Muhammad Rage, claimed responsibility in the group's name a day after the attacks.

Approximately 5,000 soldiers from Uganda and Burundi are currently stationed in Somalia's war-torn capital city of Mogadishu as part of an African Union force that is essentially keeping the weak interim Somali government under President Shaykh Sharif Ahmed in power. Harakat al-Shabab leaders have warned the two nations to withdraw their troops or face the consequences. The group most recently issued a threat in its video The African Crusaders, which was released in late June, though it specifically warned that Ugandan and Burundian soldiers would continue "coming home in coffins" if the two nations did not withdraw their troops from Somalia.

A Note on Blogging & Those Who Cast Libelous Aspersions

Some in cyberspace have been casting libelous aspersions on my status as a graduate student studying Muslim socio-political movements, including transnational extremist groups such as Al-Qa'ida Central and its affiliates, as well as the academic nature and integrity of my blogs. My writing here at Views from the Occident and my two subsidiary blogs is clearly labeled as being academic in nature. Frankly, I think that it is pretty clear to those who actually read my original posts (as opposed to postings/pasting of primary sources and third party articles) that this is the case. I am also honored to have my blog(s) listed in the "Links" sections of a few noted experts and specialists in transnational militant groups and counter-terrorism, a fact that the libelers have conveniently failed to note. They also seem ignorant of the fact that jihadi-takfiris do not call themselves "takfiri" and actually object to being labeled as such.

Honest and constructive critique, criticisms, and suggestions are always welcome, which is why I have set up an e-mail address for my blogs. Libel and gross aspersions on my character and academic integrity, however, are not. My academic e-mail is also available via a quick Internet search, should any who seem to think that I am not a graduate student wish to check the facts before engaging in libel.

Thanks to my readers and to my professorial mentors, friends, colleagues, and (God willing) future colleagues for their continued support and advice. Peace.

Hizbullah Condemns Recent Attacks on Twelver Shi'i Pilgrims in Baghdad

The Lebanese Twelver Shi'i political party Hizbullah has condemned attacks this week targeting Shi'i pilgrims in Iraq. The attacks are believed to have been carried out by the Islamic State of Iraq, an umbrella for Al-Qa'ida in the Land of the Two Rivers/Iraq (AQI) and several of other, smaller groups. Background on the ISI, an umbrella for several of the most violent jihadi-insurgent groups operating in Iraq including Al-Qa'ida in the Land of the Two Rivers/Iraq (AQI), and both leaders can be found in my guest editorial, "The Death of a Caliph: Will the Reported Killings of the Islamic State of Iraq's Two Senior Leaders Spell Out the End of the Self-styled Jihadi State?", on Prof. Juan Cole's Informed Comment blog.

Afghanistan "Quetta Shura" Taliban Statement: International Robbers & Afghanistan's Mineral Wealth

Below is a statement from the Afghan Taliban, which refers to itself as the "Islamic Emirate [state] of Afghanistan" (as it did in the 1990s). The statement is run without edits.

International Robbers and Afghan Underground Wealth

Rajab 21, 1431 A.H, Sunday, July 04, 2010

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Now when the American militants have loudly accepted their defeat in the Afghan battlefield with the realization of being unable to retain a single foot of land, they have started an International Satanic Game. In order to prolong the war, the American aggressors are persuading their allies for further stay in Afghanistan through political and monitory bribe.
While citing the American geologists’ report, the American General David Petraeus in an interview with ‘New York Times’ said that Afghanistan has precious deposits worth $ 1 trillion and if these are mined it will make Afghanistan an economically stable country. He also said that some of these deposits can be helpful in military field besides bringing economic profit.

The chat about mineral in Afghanistan by a top military general being involved in the Afghan War reflects the deep American interests in the underground wealth of Afghan people. In fact, it’s not his duty to share the details about minerals Afghanistan rather he is supposed to lead the occupation forces on their war front. Hence, the interest shown by David Petraeus reveals the secret Americans plans to loot the Afghan deposits of great important through contracts made by their puppets in Kabul.

Reliable sources also report that the big American companies and important business figures have shares in these contracts for looting the precious natural resources. The fact which essentially makes every Afghan worried is that the deposits of uranium lie in the areas where Americans have built huge bases as preplan to loot the Afghan wealth. Allah knows how many planes bound for Washington are loaded each day from these bases.

Sources inform the Americans have awarded permissions to the countries after taking surety of helping the American militants to a certain period. The analysts say that contracts for mining Afghan natural resources stand illegitimate and immoral in the situation where a puppet regime is in place while the occupation forces are furthering their war plans. In such conditions the Afghan masses and soldiers of the historical resistance reserves the right to bar them and save the Afghan wealth by making the heinous design of international looters and thief unsuccessful.
