“A Message to the American People Regarding the Killing of the US Hostage in Yemen”
Sheikh Nasr al Anisi
“In the name of Allah, the most Merciful and Compassionate”
“Praise be to Allah who supports the weak and defeats the arrogant, who glorifies the believers and humiliates the kuffar. Prayers and peace be upon the imam of the mujahidin, who conveyed the message and fulfilled trust and who waged jihad fi sabil Allah until he received certainty, and upon his noble companions. To proceed:
This is a message for the American people about killing the hostage in Yemen. After our message in which we gave Obama and the US government a 3 day period to execute the demands of the mujahidin, and we attached to the message an appeal from the US hostage, Obama made his wrong decision, which was considered a signature on the execution order of his US citizen. Despite we warned him not to commit any foolish thing in this regard, he insisted on doing this and he didn’t do anything to stop the death of the hostage and save his life.
He did contrarily. he made the decision for death and covered his ears from advice from his advisers who were from his people. He followed the path of the Pharaoh, the enemy of Allah (swt) when he said: ‘I point out to you what I see myself.’ Obama and his government knew our demands are just, however. They could negotiate over some of the points. Or, they could show a good intent to do that. But he chose a military campaign, which has failed before and failed again, by the grace of Allah (swt). This also revealed the size of weakness and cowardliness of his soldiers, despite them having a huge arsenal and advanced weapons, and supported with aerial coverage from helicopters and drones.
This was during a heroic and epic battle by a small number of Muslim mujahidin from al Qa’ida and the tribesman, whose number did not surpass 10 percent of the attackers. The mujahidin performed very well in this battle. They fought against the elite US forces from the air and the ground, and who were equipped with silenced weapons and night vision goggles, with heavy air support during the assault which continued for 3 hours. The US Department of Defense and the Pentagon failed to mention their losses in this failed attempts. In these failed attempts the mujahidin inflicted slaughter on the attackers by the grace of Allah and taught them a harsh lesson, with only a few mujahidin and little equipment. But Allah (swt) made strengthened their hearts, planted firmly their feet and guided their aim in shooting. Allah (swt) speaks al Haqq (the truth) when He says ‘if there are twenty among you, who are steadfast and patient, they will overcome two hundred. And if there are 100 among you who are steadfast and patient, they will overcome 1000 kuffar, for these are a people who don’t understand.’
Oh enemies of Allah, you must know that every Muslim is a mujahid and that jihad is an act of Ibadah (worship) and obligatory in our deen (religion). No honest believer would not fight against you if he has a chance. You have seen how the tribesman fighters resisted against you. A number of these fighters, whose imaan (faith) pushed them to confront you, were martyred. And the sons of Muslims who you violate their land and invade their lives and families, are bloodthirsty, and arresting your soldiers and slaughtering them and taking revenge against them. As for the appeal of the hostage’s family, it should have been directed to Obama and his government, not to us. Obama made the decision which caused things to take a completely different turn than what we wanted.
He had the ability to help the US hostage avoid this fate, which was the inevitable consequence of the military solution within the clashes with the US Special Forces. Later, Obama stated the killing of the hostage was an act of ‘barbaric murder’ in an attempt to conceal his own barbaric behavior, and indifference for the lives of not only the US citizen, but the South African hostage too whose negotiations were in progress. Obama was careless about other innocent lives who were killed and wounded in this failed operation in which one woman was wounded.
We ask Allah (swt) to hasten the healing of the wounded and to accept the dead among the martyrs. I would like to pose a few questions for those reasonable, if there are any: do we not have the right to demand the release of Sheikh Umar Abdurahman? Can they explains the fate of imprisoned Afia Sidiqi and set her free after these two long years of injustice and torture and arrest? And our imprisoned brothers and sisters in Guantanamo prison and in prisons of agents of the US in Islamic countries, and other secret US prisons spread all over the world.
They have a right to be free and we try to free them from their tragic situation and barbaric injustice which is far from the convention of human rights. Is there anything in this and other lists of American injustice and tyranny we can negotiate about with America? The US response and behavior confirm the truth of what the mujahidin think- that it is impossible to have an agreement with the American government except in one way – of straightforward killing and treating them in the same manner, which puts the lives of all Americans in danger, inside and outside of America, in the air on the ground and in the sea.
Are your people aware of the fate which this government and its aggressive policies guides you to if it continues its war against the Islamic Ummah. Beginning with supporting the Zionist occupation of Palestine, and violating the sacred places, and shedding the blood of Muslims in cold blood, and not paying attention to the land and honor of Muslims?
Will your people dream of safety and our Ummah in this situation? By Allah (swt) this unjust distribution of rights will never happen. You will not dream of safety until we actually live it in Palestine and all Muslim countries. ‘And those who have wronged are going to know what (kind of) return they will be returned.’ (Qur’an Al-Karim 26:227)
Oh Aqsa, we are coming!”
