Al-Sarkawi verteidigt Enthauptungen, wirbt f�r den Dschihad

--- Langsam zeichnen sich Spannungen hinsichtlich der Enthauptungen und ihrer medialen Verbreitung per Video ab, wie das Northeast Intelligence Network (NEIN) meldet. Demnach hat der Terroristenf�hrer al-Sarkawi ein langes, 60-min�tiges Audiotape online ver�ffentlicht, in dem er das blutige Abschlachten vor der Kamera zu verteidigen sucht Al-Zarqawi accuses the Muslim ulema of having "left the field and given up the leadership of the convoy," saying "you can only hear their voice when they speak against the mujahidin." Criticizing the ulema's position toward the beheading of Nicholas Berg, Al-Zarqawi says "they condemned [the beheading of Berg] because they had previously refrained from fighting the infidels." "They lied and claimed that this matter has distorted the image of Islam in the eyes of delicate westerners, and that the world interacted with the Abu Ghurayb and Guantanamo crime and this operation came to negatively affect this interaction and response from the world. [They even claimed] that the popularity of Bush, the dog of the Romans, was at its lowest level and this operation came to increase his popularity. It is as if the alleged free people of the world had sharpened their swords and mobilized their battalions to liberate Iraq and save the free and the bereaved women from the prisons of subjugation and oppression." Al-Zarqawi adds: "It is regrettable and horrifying that the infidel crusader media were able, through the collusion of our countrymen, to influence the personality of the Muslims. Through the terrible torrent [of programs] on Arab and international channels, those managed to brainwash the Muslims, influence their thinking...and weaken their resolve." "A malicious, crusader enemy came with a terrible plot to control the nation and strengthen the Jews," he notes. Al-Zarqawi notes that some mediators tried to save Berg, "this lout," and offered "whatever sums of money we could ask for." He says that although the group needed money badly to use for "jihad," "we preferred to avenge our sisters and nation." Ansonsten ist auch eine neue Ausgabe der al-Qaida-Kampfschrift al-Battar herausgekommen (Nr. 13), deutlich d�nner als bisher, denn der bisherige Kopf des Islamisten-Magazins, al-Mukrin, starb nach der Enthauptung von Paul Johnson bei einem Feuergefecht mit saudi-arabischen Einheiten. NEIN verweist dar�ber hinaus auf ein neues Video aus dem al-Sarkawi-Netzwerk, das die "heiligen Krieger" auf neue Taten einschw�ren soll und zeigt recht detailliert, wie sich Selbstmordattent�ter auf ihre "gro�en Taten" und letzten Stunden vorbereiten und dann losschlagen. Das "Best of"-Sammelsurium vergangener Anschl�ge wurde dem US-Magazin Time zugespielt, warum auch immer. Aber wer soviel Werbung machen muss, hat das wohl auch dringend n�tig.

Update: Zudem berichtet NEIN noch �ber ein Video, das nun seinerseits al-Sarkawi und seine Getreuen bedroht. Es wird immer bunter: A group calling itself the Salvation Movement [Harakat al-Inqath] has directed an open threat to Abu-Mus'ab al-Zarqawi demanding him to leave Iraqi lands in view of his actions, which the movement considered as acts of terrorism that harm the interests of the Iraqi citizen. Al-Arabiyah Television has received a videotape from some members of the movement, in which they deliver a statement threatening to kill anyone who helps the groups that carry out acts of violence that result in the death of innocent Iraqis. Mehr dazu in Telepolis, inzwischen auch in einem zweiten Artikel rund um die kaum noch zu �berblickenden Terrordrohungen und -videos von allen erdenklichen Gruppierungen.
