A communiquÃ© on “Rumsfeld’s Comments” from the Mujahideen Army General Headquarters in Iraq. Note the religious language: “victory or martyrdom” — yet the learned analysts will still refuse to take them at their word, to understand the intransigence of the jihad ideology that is behind those words, and will eventually call for negotiations with these people. They will decline to learn that negotiations are for the mujahedin only another way to attain their goal, not a setting in which they moderate or change that goal. They will dismiss the religious language here as meaningless boilerplate, not realizing how key it is to understanding this properly.
And then the learned analysts will wave their hands in their cocktail parties and say, “Spencer? Jihad Watch? Pah!” But come see me in ten years and we’ll see who was right. From Uruknet.info, with thanks to Designnut:

Subject: Rumsfield’s Comments
Oh great sons of Iraq!
We confirm to you, as well as the generally known media which as usual herd behind what comes out from these war criminals and these liars by profession. They lie so often that it has become the diseases, which with god’s will, bring their end.
We have not entered in any negotiations with the occupiers or anyone who represent them or the puppet government.
The Mujahideen Army is in full adherence to the military doctrine of the of the Mujahideen Central Command MCC, and the Political views of Rafidan – The Political Committee of the MCC.
We are Mujahideen for the sake of our nation. And our aim is either victory or martyrdom in it’s path.
And god is witness to our oath!
God is greater than all, God is greater than all, God is greater than all!
And Glory to God, his prophet, and the believers!
The Mujahideen Army
