Yes, they have been waging jihad for months now, but these new declarations emphasize that the struggle must continue even now that Iraq is sovereign. From AP, :
KUWAIT CITY (AP) – Followers of Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi released a CD-ROM urging Muslim men to take up arms against the “crusaders” in Iraq and threatening to kill Iraq’s interim prime minister….
Titled “The Winds of Victory,” the recording shows fighters purportedly from al-Zarqawi’s Tawhid and Jihad group undergoing weapons training in different locations, some apparently in the desert and others in grassy areas. It also contains footage taken from inside cars following militants in Iraq conducting attacks, some of which has been previously aired by TV stations.
The Kuwaiti newspaper said the professionally produced CD-ROM is being circulated among fundamentalists in this oil-rich country, which borders Iraq.
A narrator on the film urges Muslim men to join the fight against U.S.-led forces in Iraq, saying “get up friends, God has opened the doors of paradise (to martyrs).”
The CD-ROM also repeats Tawhid and Jihad’s threat to kill Ayad Allawi, the interim Iraqi prime minister, saying, “You escaped … several times from tight traps, but we promise you to go on (trying) until the end.”…
“Whenever I remember our … sisters in the prisons of the crusaders … I feel the earth moving underneath me and I promise God to take revenge,” the narrator on the CD-ROM.
