In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate, may
peace be upon the cheerful one and the dauntless fighter,
Prophet Muhammad, God’s peace be upon him.
O nation of Islam and nation of Arabism: Rejoice for it is
time to take revenge from the British Zionist Crusader
government in retaliation for the massacres Britain is
committing in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The heroic mujahidin have carried out a blessed raid in
London. Britain is now burning with fear, terror and panic
in its northern, southern, eastern and western quarters.
We have repeatedly warned the British government and people.
We have fulfilled our promise and carried out our blessed
military raid in Britain after our mujahidin exerted
strenuous efforts over a long period of time to ensure the
success of the raid.
We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and
all the Crusader governments that they will be punished in
the same way if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq
and Afghanistan. He who warns is excused.
God says: ” (O ye who believe!) If ye will aid (the cause
of) Allah, He will aid you, and plant your feet firmly.”
