It looks like I am moving onto my third Scribd account. Back in November Scribd suspended my original account and it appears they have done so again. That said, I have created a new account already. All the posts on Jihadology prior to this post with Scribd embedded in them do not work anymore. Thankfully, all these posts also include a PDF link so if one still needs a copy of a document you should still be able to download it. Sorry for any inconveniences.

NOTE: On May 1, 2010 Fayṣal Shahzād attempted to set off a car bomb in Times Square. Below is the message he recorded prior to the failed attack with the Teḥrīk-ī-Ṭālibān Pākistān’s media outlet ‘Umar Studios. On October 5, 2010, Shahzād was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty to a 10-count indictment in June, including charges of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting an act of terrorism.

UPDATE 3/1 8:53 AM: Here is an English translation of the below audio/video message:

Ayman aẓ-Ẓawāhirī — “Third Installment of a Message of Hope and Glad Tidings to Our People in Egypt” (En)

NOTE: To see the previous installments see: First and Second Installment. It appears unlike the first installment, the second and third installments were recorded at similar times; their background graphics are the same too. This message was record between the fall of Ben ‘Alī and the fall of Ḥusnī Mubārak. Ẓawāhirī argues that the Americans are installing new regimes in both places, but they should be resisted along with the French. Appears that three audio/videos in, Ẓawāhirī is still trolling out the same old platitudes and really is out of touch of what is going on at the ground level. One wonders when AQ leadership realizes there really has been an intellectual paradigm shift in the Arab world.

NOTE: Here are a couple of other recent statements/audio messages from Hānī al-Sibā’ī that relate to the recent Arab uprisings:

Reprisals against Mujahideen’s relatives, elimination of people involved in anti-Islamic activities, etc. He aslo reaffirmed what has been decided in the Omra №7, about the interdiction to carry out reprisals against relatives of simple policemen, traffic policemen and others, on whose there is no clear informations about their participation in attacks against Mujahideen’s relatives.

Rabi-ul-Awwal 21, 1432 A.H, Friday, February 25, 2011

By Abu Muthanna Badir

For months we have been hearing the startling and stunning buzz of negotiations, reports of which have been seen increasingly spread in an urgent and polished style by the ignorant Western news agencies, glossed with a hue of truth and veracity. This buzz has been repeated and spread until it was said: a high-ranking delegation from the Islamic Emirate met with officials of the lackey, mercenary government at the Sarina Hotel here in the Afghan capital Kabul. This was corroborated from the mouth of the snake-charmer president of this government in one of his interviews with the CNN satellite network.

Unfortunately, I have heard this false claim on the tongues of some naïve and stupid countrymen of ours, as well as those who wear the garb of the praiseworthy and innocent lamb who corroborate their words and bear witness for them because of the existence of common interests which they share with them, but at heart they have a faith that is weaker than the spider’s web.

We must not wonder at these biased (reports) and fabricated deceptions on the part of the enemy. Such contrivances are nothing but the practice of Americans and Westerners and the habit of the hypocrites and mercenaries. Whenever they fail in a conspiracy, they immediately resort to the next one – like a drowning man who extends his hand to even (pond) scum, hoping it will save him even though it is impossible for it to help him. The Afghans generally and the Mujahideen especially are fully aware of the tricks of the occupying enemy and his wicked plots. They have been hardened by wars and military plots throughout the past three decades which they have spent fighting foreign invaders and occupiers, and they have mastered all kinds of war. They will be not be duped by these farcical lies issued by the enemy even though these lies are deceptively coated as truth. The enemy has today retreated to the military invasion due to the heroism of the Mujahideen and the resistance of the Afghans. They resort to this toxic discharge among naïve circles of Muslims, with the intention of shaking their bright ideas, driving away their strong zeal, diminishing their religious awareness, causing their determination to slumber, and intoxicate their clear minds.

It is logically impossible for negotiations to be conducted with the lackey government and the fifth column so long as it is embraced in the lap of wicked America and while American flags are flapping above the peaks of this Muslim land.

How is it possible? The Mujahideen have embarked on Jihad and given themselves and their souls to Allah Almighty. They have refused to have anything to do with this artificial life, and have chosen death over life. They have made countless sacrifices in these past three decades. They have turned to face and banded together against the pharaoh of this age (criminal America) with overflowing might and rushing zeal, bearing on their backs the responsibility for defending the frontlines of Islam and defending the territory of Islam in this blessed land against those criminals who have swept through many Afghan territories and committed repulsive crimes that send a shiver down the spine, especially in the south which they have occupied and where they have shed the blood of its innocent people until this day.

No matter how they spread the spirit of defeat and (try) to shake trust in the spirits of Mujahideen via their lying rumors and trying to shatter their solid wills; break their backs; destroy the optimism of Muslims in supporting the Religion and its people; spread their exaggerations and dull their senses. No matter what…no one will believe them (Allah willing) nor accept their false rumors.

This is because the policy of the Islamic Emirate is as clear as the afternoon sun. The Emirate summit has more than once declared in its media statements that negotiations with the lackey government are not possible so long as Western armies are present here and while it remains the candidate of the first rank of collaboration, treachery and perfidy towards this country and its people. This is and remains the Emirate’s policy, and there will be no concession or compromise on this.

What type of negotiations are these? The government has thus far been unable to make any statement in the name of any actual Emirate officials. They are just random words thrown about here and there.

Unfortunately, some naïve individuals believe their words and vouch for them on their positions without knowing whether the basis for the reality for these positions are true or false. This just (reflects) the old understanding between them and the dissolute hypocrites and the presence of personal interests between them. Those stupid ones who are drawn by sentiment or an old understanding – as it seems to me – come appearing as servants of Allah SWT, but at heart their faith is weaker than the web of the spider. If they had truly read the glorious Qur’an then they would have denied the false rumors. Recall the words of Allah SWT:

“O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done”. (Al-Hujarat: 6).

Finally, I wish to gladden the hearts of dear brothers and lovers of Islam and Muslims; falsehood no matter how it grows and multiplies, and no matter how its roots and branches lengthen, there will (be) a hand of the people of truth to pluck it out. So, do not fear or be troubled. The glad tidings of victory appear on the horizon.

“Already has Our Word been passed before (this) to our Servants sent (by Us), that they would certainly be assisted, and that Our forces, – they surely must conquer.” (Al-Saffat: 171-173).

So rejoice followers of Allah. Rejoice, soldiers of Allah:

“So lose not heart, nor fall into despair: For ye must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith” (Al-i-Imran: 139).

Discouraging words should not deter your determination to do good deeds. False news should not stop you so that you remain in the same place, not moving forward or producing any effect. Cling fast to the rope of Allah and trust in the victory of Righteous Allah.

“Whoever holds firmly to Allah will be shown a way that is straight” (Al-i-Imran: 101).

Place these false rumors behind your backs, for they are from the soldiers of Shaytan:

“It is only the Evil One that suggests you to fear of his votaries: Be ye not afraid of them, but fear Me, if ye have faith,” (Al-i-Imran: 175), because he frightens us with his men at times and with his words at others and by making us despair at others. Allah only suffices for us; He is our Supporter and He is “the best to protect and the best to help”.
