In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,
On behalf of Al Qaeda, the Iranian Revolutionary Council, Jemaah Islamiah, Lashkar-e-Toiba, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, Abu Sayyaf, Ansar Al-Islam, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Tawhid and Jihad, and other brother organisations we send this message to you.
From the depths of our hearts we salute the steadfast support of American liberals, the people of Western Europe and the world's Left for our global mission to build a world in which all countries are Islamic and guided by Sharia Law.
Thank you to your media for providing coverage of our military efforts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Chechnya, Algeria, Kenya and Thailand. Without the likes of the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, The Guardian, The Age, CNN, the BBC, NBC, CBS, PBS, the ABC, SBS, Reuters and AFP we would not be able to influence public opinion in your countries and ensure our success.
Thank you to your new media outlets including DailyKos, Huffington Post, MyDD and FireDogLake for providing a forum where people can come together to voice their support for us in the so called War On Terror, can reveal the massive Jewish Conspiracy, and can deny the Holocaust.
Thank you for your belief in and support of the Martyrs of Islam - those brave warriors who performed one final mission to help break down the societies we both fight against - in their actions on 9/11 and 7/7, the Bali bombings, operations against Israel and the jihad in Iraq.
Thank you for not supporting the American troop surge in Iraq. It brings much joy to us to have such a staunch ally as the Democratic Party and we applaud its efforts to enable our cause by ensuring that the surge fails.
We single out special praise for Congressmen John Murtha and Dennis Kucinich for their tireless efforts to defund the war. We bow down before the wisdom of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who understands that all is lost in Iraq. Once American troops withdraw from there we look forward to the same support in Afghanistan. There is a special place for you all in Paradise. To Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi we send our deepest gratitude and have reserved for you the special blue burqa that signifies authority over other women in the Umma and allows you to walk alone in public without needing the company of a relative.
Thank you to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Muslim Students Association and the Islamic Supreme Council of America for working so hard to silence the critics of Islam, implement Sharia Law wherever possible and raise funds for our activities around the world.
Thank you to the imams and other staff working at mosques in the United States, the UK and Australia for spreading our message, providing financial support, converting young men to Islam and sending so many fresh soldiers to replace the Martyrs that have entered Paradise.
Thank you to Michael Moore, Robert Fisk, George Galloway, William Blum, Rowan Williams, Rosie O'Donnell, Keith Olbermann, Yusuf Islam, Ken Livingston, Gareth Pierce, John Pilger, Norman Mailer, Ted Turner, Jane Fonda, Joel Beinin, George Soros, Noam Chomsky and many others for your passionate support.
"So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad, and you will be superior (in victory) if you are indeed (true) believers" [Quran 3:139]
"Allah has decreed that 'Verily it is I and My Messengers who shall be victorious.' Verily Allah is All-Powerful, All-Mighty." [Quran 58:21]
With such strong support we know that we will never become weak. Muhammad (peace be upon him) shows us the way and we will have victory.
