UPDATE 5/1/12 9:05 AM: Here is an English translation of the below Arabic statement:
Alhamdulillah who said: (Think not of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead. Nay they live finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord -169- They rejoice in the Bounty provided by Allah: and with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve -170- They glory in the Grace and the Bounty from Allah, and in the fact that Allah suffereth not the reward of the Faithful to be lost (in the least) -171-) Surah Aal-e-Imran, then
We offer our condolences to our Muslim Ummah for the death of Mujahid commander Mohammed Saeed Al-Omdah alias “Gharib Al-Taazi” – may Allah have a wide mercy on him, who was martyred Allah willing with two mujahidin after an American shelling that targeted them in the Al-Samadah region in Marib.
Commander Gharib Al-Taazi had a long journey of jihad for the sake of Allah which began in Afghanistan that he even was from those close to sheikh Osama bin Laden rahimahullah so he was among his special guards, then he participated rahimahullah in several operations until he became on the list of the most wanted to the American intelligence services, then he was arrested and imprisoned in the prisons of Al-Saud then he was transferred to Yemen and stayed in the prisons of Sana’a for three years until all facilitated for him and his brothers to escape from the Political Security in Sana’a, and he continued in his jihad and spending until he gained martyrdom with his brothers on the hands of the Americans.
And as we offer our condolences to the Ummah of Islam for losing one of its steadfast knights and one of its blessed heroes, we in the same time remind the Americans that their crimes won’t go to waste, and the record for revenge is long.
(and Allah is the master of His affair, but most people do not know)
