New statement from al-Qā’idah in the Arabian Peninsula: “About the Killing of the American Missionary in Ta’iz‎”

UPDATE 3/23/12 11:51 AM: Here is an English translation of the below Arabic statement:

In the name of God the Merciful

Praise God that said: And when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slaythe Pagans wherever ye find them, and lie in wait for them ([Al-Tawbah: 5], prayer and peace upon the Messenger of God, saying, (Cleanse the Arabian Peninsula of infidels); and thereafter:

Allah has graced the Mujahideen to kill the American Joel Sharm who was active in Christianization under the cover of education in Ta’ez City. And, accordingly, we assure that we will not allow the missionary programs to continue in the Yemen of faith and wisdom, and we will counter it with all sorts of methods with the help of Allah

We also, on this occasion, remind that America, her citizens and interests are legitimate targets in our Jihad, until America stops her war on Islam and Muslims, starting with supporting the Jews in Palestine and even the crimes that reoccur in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and Yemen
