Who is Abu Musab al-Zarqawi?

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (Arabic: أبومصعب الزرقاوي) (born October 20, 1966) is a Jordanian-born Wahhabi Islamist militant, guerrilla leader, and the head of Al-Qaeda in Iraq. Zarqawi has confessed, on multiple audiotapes, to having committed numerous acts of violence in Iraq, including killing civilians and taking hostages. As an Islamist militant, Zarqawi violently opposes the presence of U.S., Israeli and Western military forces in the Islamic world. In September 2005, he reportedly declared "all-out war" on Shia Muslims in Iraq.

Terrorist activities:

Assassination of Laurence Foley

Assassination Nicholas Berg

Other incidents

U.S. officials believe that Zarqawi trained others in the use of poison (ricin) for possible attacks in Europe, ran a terrorist haven in northern Iraq, and organized the bombing of a Baghdad hotel.
According to suspects arrested in Turkey, Zarqawi sent them to Istanbul to organize an attack on a NATO summit there on June 28 or June 29.
U.S. officials blame Zarqawi for over 700 killings in Iraq during the occupation, mostly from bombings.
According to the U.S. State Department, Zarqawi is responsible for the Canal Hotel bombing of the U.N. headquarters in Iraq on August 19, 2003. This attack killed twenty two people, including the UN Secretary-general's special Iraqi envoy Sergio Vieira de Mello.
Zarqawi is believed by the former Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq to have written an intercepted letter to the al-Qaida leadership in February 2004 on the progress of the "Iraqi jihad." Many observers do not believe that Zarqawi wrote the letter.
On July 11, 2004, a group reportedly led by Zarqawi, claimed responsibility for a July 8 mortar attack in Samarra, Iraq. Five American soldiers and one Iraqi soldier were killed.
Jordan accuses Zarqawi of plotting to release a chemical cloud in Amman. Men were arrested in Amman who purportedly were planning to release the chemical attack. He was convicted in absentia on March 20, 2005, and sentenced to fifteen years in prison in addition to his two death sentences for earlier crimes in Jordan.
Zarqawi is believed to have masterminded the 2005 bombings in Amman that killed about seventy people in three hotels.

AND THE MOST RECENT ATROCITY COMMITED BY THIS MONGREL OF ARAB SOCIETY IS THIS:

Al-Qaeda's leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, said in an audio tape put onto the Internet that rockets had been fired at Israel from Lebanon last month "on the instructions" of the network's overall chief Osama bin Laden.

"The rocket firing at the ancestors of monkeys and pigs from the south of Lebanon was only the start of a blessed in-depth strike against the Zionist enemy (...). All that was on the instructions of the sheikh of the mujahedeen, Osama bin laden, may God preserve him," said the voice attributed to the Jordanian extremist.

"This commendable feat came in application by the mujahedeen of the oath by fighter sheikh Osama bin Laden, emir of the Al-Qaeda network, may God preserve him," added the recording referring to repeated statements by Bin Laden that the Israelis should not enjoy security as long as Muslims were not safe.


Zarqawi hit out at the Sunni Muslim Iraqi Islamic Party for having taken part in the December 15 general elections, and called on it to renounce such actions.

"We call on the Islamic Party to abandon the road to perdition on which it has embarked and which threatened to cause the loss of the Sunni community," Zarqawi said, adding that the party "should have called the people to jihad (holy war)."

The Iraqi Al-Qaeda leader then laid down two conditions for giving up the jihad.

"First, chase out the invaders from our territory in Palestine, in Iraq and everywhere in Islamic land.

"Second, instal sharia (Islamic law) on the entire Earth and spread Islamic justice there (...). The attacks will not cease until after the victory of Islam and the setting up of sharia," he swore.

Zarqawi concluded: "O young Muslims everywhere in the world, and in particular in the neighbouring countries (of Iraq) and in Yemen, I recommend jihad to you (...). O nation of Islam, America is today drawing its last breath."

(HMM DRAWING OUR LAST BREATH? DON'T THINK SO YOU CAMEL JOCKEY. THINK WE ARE WINNING THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE CITIZENS OVER THERE. SHOWING THEM THAT THERE IS LIFE OUTSIDE A TERRANICAL ISLAMOFICIST REGIME BUDDY BOY!!!)
