This lengthy audio address from the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq highlights the plight of some of the weakened Iraqis, who after four long years of war are being worn down and manipulated by those who claim to be Muslims. Sheikh also announces the “Expedition Of The Martyr Of The Ummah Abu Musab Az-Zarqawi” that is sure to be of grave concern to the American’s in Iraq during Ramadan.

Excerpts: And The Unbelievers Plotted And Planned, And Allah Too Planned, And Allah Is The Best Of Planners
“So congratulations to you Oh Slaves of Allah, that Allah has brought upon you this month, and extended for you in your age, to forestall what has gone past, and follow what has preceded you.
Oh Ummah of Islam, the Jihad in the Land of two Rivers, is facing fierce attack today, and a violent war at the hands of betrayal and treachery.
Oh our people in the Land of the Two Rivers, I know that many of you have fallen in the trap of the huge misguiding campaign, led by the current of the abandoning or surrender, with the tempting promises, lured many of the youngsters, who entered the corps of treachery and puppetry under separate names, then this is a call to awaken and rescue yourselves….
And it is necessary for our steadfast Ummah to know, that the Ikhwaan Al Muslimeen (Muslim Brotherhood) in the Land of the Two Rivers and at their head, the Islamic Party (Hizb Al Islami) are practicing the worst expedition to efface the rights of the religion in Iraq, and especially the prestigious Jihad…
Some of the resistance units that wear the dress of Salafiyah falsely have entered this fray, hiding them selves behind the dogma of the Brotherhood conspiracy…
Oh Soldiers of the Islamic State, O the youth of the Prophet, peace be upon him. Now every insignificant and subservient one has started to dare to come against us; from the Cross worshipers to Satan worshipers and even the cow worshippers, and our honors and blood have become the cheapest things in the world.
Even those who claimed neutrality earlier have now dared to rise against the Muslims, even those who used to claim neutrality, like the small country of the Cross, insignificant and subservient, Sweden….
So from today onwards we incite to kill, to spill the blood of Lars Vilks', the one who drew the caricatures and attempted to diminish the status of our Prophet, peace be upon him.
We declare that in the month of generosity, the month of Ramadan, a prize of $100, 000 dollars to the one who kills this unbeliever criminal, the prize will rise to $150, 000 dollars if he is slaughtered like a sheep. We also declare a prize of $150, 000 dollars to the one who brings the head of the director of the magazine that published the matter.
We are today on the door step of the beginning of a new era, and a turning point and a change in the map of the area and the whole world. We today are witnessing the end of the lie of the western age, and the awakening of the Islamic Giant, and that is exactly what Bush warned against, in his last statement…
I am honored to declare on the First of Ramadan a ghazwah (expedition) named “The Expedition Of The Martyr Of The Ummah, Abu Musab Az-Zarqawi” that will end on the 7th of Shawwal, and is a part of the blessed Honor Plan, by the will of Allah…..”
