Whether you oppose or support the effort to install democracy in Iraq, you owe it to yourself to read this–it is the manifesto of “our enemy.” (Unless you’ve fallen so deep into paranoia that you really think this is a fake, too.) Here it is. Read for yourself.
The confrontation that we are calling for with the apostate regimes does not know Socratic debates . . . , Platonic ideals . . . nor Aristotelian diplomacy. But it knows the dialogue of bullets, the ideals of assassination, bombing, and destruction, and the diplomacy of the cannon and machine-gun.
Islamic governments have never and will never be established through peaceful solutions and cooperative councils. They are established as they [always] have been:
By pen and gun, by word and bullet, by tongue and teeth. After the fall of our orthodox caliphates on March 3, 1924 and after expelling the colonialists, our Islamic nation was afflicted with apostate rulers who took over in the Moslem nation. These rulers turned out to be more infidel and criminal than the colonialists themselves. Moslems have endured all kinds of harm, oppression, and torture at their hands.
Colonialism and its followers, the apostate rulers, then started to openly erect crusader centers, societies, and organizations like Masonic Lodges, Lions and Rotary clubs, and foreign schools. They aimed at producing a wasted generation that pursued everything that is western and produced rulers, ministers, leaders, physicians, engineers, businessmen, politicians, journalists, and information speicialists. [Koranic verse:] “and Allah’s enemies plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah.”
Islam does not coincide or make a truce with unbelief, but rather confronts it.
PRISONS AND DETENTION CENTERS
IF AN INDICTMENT IS ISSUED AND THE TRIAL, BEGINS, THE BROTHER HAS TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING:
1. At the beginning of the trial, once more the brothers must insist on proving that torture was inflicted on them by State Security [investigators] before the judge.
2. Complain [to the court] of mistreatment while in prison.
