The original video was 30+ minutes, I took out all the boring parts, edited the video a bit and made a shorter version (10 mins).
He comes out with the usual BS. Complains about the "Crusaders", the Kurds and the Shia. He never actually says the word "Shia"...He calls them "Rawafidh" (Rejectionists), because the Shia reject the first 3 caliphs of Islam. He speaks in classical Arabic, saying exactly the same thing he said in the audio tape that was released to the media some time ago. In a nutshell, he is saying..."Death to America, Death to the Shia, Death to the Iraqi army."
When addressing the Iraqi army, he warns them that they will face the "Mujahadeens swords" if they continue to fight for the crusaders.
The video clears up a few things. The most obvious thing to notice is that this coward actually exists. He is not an imaginary figure that the Pentagon decided to make up for Washington to have someone to blame for all the chaos in Iraq. He is a real man, and he is calling for the death of all those who ally with America, especially the Shia.
There were a few rumours floating about the leadership of the terrorists, aka Mujahadeen. This video also clears that up. Zarqawi always was and continues to be their leader, he is in control of all their activities in Iraq. There is a Mujahadeen Shura Council which is an umbrella group consisting of many terrorist cells and groups. A representative of that council was briefing Zarqawi on their activities...a show of power, more or less telling the world that all these terrorist groups report back to him, and are under his control.
Transcript from Memri:
"When the Crusader enemy entered Iraq, it intended to gain control over the [Islamic] nation, and to strengthen the state of the sons of Zion, from the Nile to the Euphrates. But Allah has given the mujahideen sons [of the nation] the strength to face the cruelest Crusader campaign, invading the lands of the Muslims. They have withstood this invasion for more than three years."
"As for the American administration, headed by the bearer of the banner of the cross, Bush - we say to him and to his followers - the Jews, the Crusaders, the Rafidite Shi'ites, the apostates, and others: You will not rest peacefully in the lands of Islam. By Allah, your life will be unbearable as long as blood flows in our veins and our eyes can see. You were offered by our emir and leader Sheikh Osama, may Allah protect him, a long-term truce. It would have been better for you and for those at your side if you had accepted the offer then. But your arrogance and conceit prevented you from doing so. And today, with the grace of Allah, you seek the help of East and West, confused, exhausted, and broken, like someone whom 'Satan has prostrated with his touch.' "
"You (Bush) have become an utter liar. You deceive your people and supporters. Whenever the mujahidun increase their blows, you increase your lies and falsehoods, claiming that the situation is under control. But then it becomes clear to all that what you say is a lie, and so on. You are like someone who tries to cure his drunkenness with alcohol. You have not been honest with yourself or your people for a single moment, even though your forefathers had an integrity you lack. Why don't you reveal the truth about your soldiers, and the collapse of their motivation to fight, so that your people will know the truth about the war? Why don't you tell them about the continuing suicides among your soldiers? Why don't you tell them that none of your soldiers go to sleep unless they take sleeping pills and hallucinatory drugs, which make them lose their minds, and they become like dumb beasts, led by the pro-Zionist and Evangelist generals of your war to the slaughterhouses of perdition? Why don't you tell them about your soldiers' collective fleeing, and about the growing rebelliousness among their ranks?"
"Once again, we warn those who strive to establish and deploy the army and police, which were set up in order to carry out the schemes of the occupiers, and to implement a law different than the one brought down by the Lord. We should beware of whoever joins these collaborating apparatuses. By Allah, the only thing they will get from us is a slashing sword. We will have further battles with them, the horror of which will turn even children's hair white."
