The Manhattan Raid - Part 1


Production by As-Sahab Media
[Al Qaida's Media Department]


In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful






"The sacred month is for the sacred month, and for the prohibited things, there is the Law of Equality (Qisâs). Then whoever transgresses the prohibition against you, you transgress likewise against him."
(Al-Baqarah 2:194)








[ Commences by a message from Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin haafizahullah ]


The Ummah in our time is lost and alienated. Ten years have passed since the Americans entered the Land of the Two Sanctuaries. And more than seven decades have passed since the fall of the destination of the Night Journey of our Prophet, peace be upon him.






[ Narrator ]


The calls of the Mujahid Shaykh Abu Abdullah Usama bin Ladin awakened the consciousness of the youth of Islam towards their contemporary issues and plundered sacred places, and awakened in their souls the spirit of sacrifice, defiance and love for martyrdom. And among that devout group which responded to the order of Allah and order of His Messenger were the heroes of the Manhattan raid, who wrote with the ink of their blood the greatest pages of modern history. After seven decades of humiliation and disgrace for the Ummah, starting with the establishment of the state of Israel and its occupation of the Holy Land in collusion with the apostate Arab governments led by the Saudi regime which played an influential role in the establishment of this Zionist entity.

On May 14th, 1948, after the expiration of the British mandate, the Zionist Ben Gurion declared the establishment of the Jewish state in Palestine.





[ Declaration of the Zionist state by Ben Gurion ]



Today, the British mandate in the land of Israel ends. Now we declare the establishment of a Jewish state in the land of Israel called the State of Israel.






[ Narrator ]


And after that accursed declaration, operations began to expel and displace the defenseless people of Palestine. The destruction and damage left by the Jewish occupation of the blessed lands was major and varied, and the Jews didn't suffice with that - no, they invaded al-Aqsa Mosque and set it ablaze, and destroyed dozens of the neighborhoods and villages which surrounded it, including mosques and Islamic schools. And the wanton aggression against our brothers in Palestine continued for decades and until this very day, leaving behind thousands killed, injured, and displaced, in the full view of the whole world and in the shadow of a silence and betrayal which pervaded the wounded Islamic Ummah.






[ Hamza al-Ghamdi - One of the Martyrs of the Manhattan Raid ]



To the wounded Ummah, I say:
I swear by He who created the universe from nothing, if we are happy to be humiliated and if we incline to comfort, the footsteps of the enemy will stretch from Jerusalem to Mecca and then everyone will regret on a day when regret is of no use.



[ Narrator ]


And the footsteps of the enemy stretched from Jerusalem to Mecca, because the Saudi regime didn't suffice with its betrayal of the Ummah and responsibility for the loss of al-Aqsa Mosque. No, it has today made the Ummah suffer the loss of the holiest of places, by permitting the Land of the Two Sanctuaries to be overrun by the troops of the Crusaders.



[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]


The country is occupied in every sense of the world. They've been taking petrol for the last ten years at an average of 9 dollars per barrel. The barrel is sold refined in Europe for 230 dollars per barrel, while they take it from us for 9 dollars. And from these nine dollars, is deduced the costs of operation, extraction and maintenance. Nothing is left.
As for the rest: the Americans bring their old, scrapped aircraft and say, "You, Fahd! Buy these 70 planes for such-and-such price."
And he says, "You name it, may you live long."



[ Narrator ]

This wanton occupation which is not hidden anyone with perception... the armies of Crusader trinitarianism are resting on the land of Muhammad, peace be upon him, coming and going as they please without supervision under the pretext of protection and defending it which is a flimsy pretext to which the brother Ahmad Abd al-Sattar, an associate of Shaykh Umar Abd al-Rahman (may Allah free him), replies.



[ Shaykh Ahmad Abd al-Sattar in an interview ]

Shaykh Ahmad: The people, especially in the Arab and Islamic world look at you in the same way they looked at British and the French occupation forces.

Interviewer: How can you say that? We sent our troops to defend you!

Shaykh Ahmad: Well you know, yes we really appreciate it very much! [laughs]: you sent your troops to defend us. Nobody asked for the American troops to go there: you went there to protect your own interests, you went there to protect some corrupted regimes that work against their own people, so do not give me the excuse that you were there to protect the people. You and your policy in that area has nothing and I mean nothing to do with the people.



[ Narrator ]

The crimes of the Zionist/Crusader pact were not limited to deeming lawful our most sacred places, the Two Noble Sanctuaries and Holy House. No, the matter went further than that, and the armies of unbelief and atheism invaded the Muslim countries from East to West. Here is Iraq, Kashmir and Chechnya, sanctuaries fallen victim to their treacherous armies. And thus, Jihad has become the individual duty of every Muslim, as determined by the people of knowledge among the predecessors and successors.



[ Shaykh Abdullah Azzam (May Allah have mercy on him) ]

We have seen that the four jurists, as well as the scholars, commentators, and narrators of Hadeeth, in situations like Afghanistan and Palestine, have all ruled that Jihad becomes an individual obligation: that if the enemy enters a Muslim land by so much as a hand span, Jihad becomes a personal duty of every Muslim man and woman in that territory, and the son goes without the permission of his father, the slave without the permission of his master, and the debtor without the permission of the creditor. And if the people of that territory are incapable, or negligent, or lazy, or refrain, the individual obligation expands in a circular fashion to include the people nearest to them. And if they are also negligent or lazy or refrain. And so on, until the entire earth is included in that individual obligation, as stated by Ibn Abidin in his Hashiyah (Rad al-Muhtar ala al-Dur al-Mukhtar: Sharh Tanwir al-Absaar), Ibn Nujaym in al-Bahr al-Raiq, Ibn al-Humam in Fath al-Qadeer: Sharh al-Hidayah, and al-Kakaani in Badaai al-Sanaai. All of them stated this fundamental: that the individual obligation becomes, in this situation, like prayer and fasting - an obligation which cannot be abandoned.



[ Wa'il al-Shihri - One of the Martyrs of the Manhattan Raid ]

So if Jihad is not now an individual obligation, when then will it be, while the destination of our Prophet's Night Journey is desecrated day and night? When will it be, while Muslim men and women are burning in Chechnya? When will it be, while in Kashmir and the Philippines, the blood continues to flow? When will it be, while football is played with the heads of our brothers in Indonesia? When will it be, while Bosnia still cries over the scattered remains of the Muslims? When will it be, while Kosovo cries out for help? When will it be, while our brothers in Afghanistan die of hunger and cold due to the embargo which the Americans impose on them?



[ Narrator ]

And also among the situations in which Jihad becomes an individual obligation is when the unbelievers take a Muslim captive, as determined by the people of knowledge yesterday and today. So what about when the prisons and the dungeons of the Zionist/Crusader coalition have been filled with the scholars and Mujahideen of this Ummah, chief among them that towering mountain, the scholar and Shaykh Umar Abd al-Rahman, who is suffering all manner of torture and persecution in the prisons of America?



[ Hamza al-Ghamdi - One of the Martyrs of the Manhattan Raid]

Excuse me, devout scholars: I will not forget, or pretend to forget, the enemy's invasion of the Muslims' lands, and I will ask you by Allah, what about the captives of the Muslims whom the infidel enemies - the Americans and others - have captured? What is the legal status of the Jihad to free them? And moreover, who in the Ummah, has arisen in the first place? There's our Mujahid Shaykh Umar Abd al-Rahman (may Allah free him) still in the prisons and jails of America. And here's our brothers Ramzi, Azmarai, al-Awhali, Abu Hajir and others. And every day, the countries of unbelief announce that they have arrested a number of the Ummah's sons. So why has Jihad still not become an individual obligation!?



[ Narrator ]

The individuality of this obligation was affirmed by Shaykh Usama in the declaration of Jihad against the Americans in 1996 and stated by him in his meeting the same year with the journalist Abd al-Bari Atwan.



[ Abd-al Bari Atwan (the journalist) ]

When I met him[Shaykh Usama] in 1996, the man was actually full of hatred towards the Americans. He was planning actually to launch a war against the Americans and the American prisoners particularly in Saudi Arabia.



[ Narrator ]

And Shaykh Usama repeated his calls to hurry to Jihad in Allah's path.



[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

The humiliation and unbelief which dominates and pervades the land of Islam can only be crushed by Jihad, the bullet, and martyrdom operations. The roots of humiliation cannot be crushed except with a hail of bullets. And the free one does not toss leadership to every tyrant and disobedient one. And without a shower of blood, shame is not wiped from the faces.



[ Narrator ]

The youth came from everywhere in answer to the call to ready themselves for Jihad, and in response to the orders of Allah and His Messenger, after they became certain that the liberation of their sacred places and lifting of oppression from their Ummah will only happen through sacrificing themselves cheaply in the path of Allah, and after they realized that with effort and difficulty comes the beginnings of victory and establishment. They decided to head to the land of Afghanistan after asking prominent scholars, among them the devout scholar Shaykh Hamood bin Uqla al-Shu'aybi.



[ Shaykh Hamood bin Uqla al-Shu'aybi ]

The sword is a must, and Jihad is a must. Anything less than the weapon, even if it works with some people or has an effect on them, will neither be of any use with these diehard unbelievers nor influence them. Jihad is a heavy pillar and support of this Shari'ah, and this Islamic religion was established on this strong pillar and foundation. The religion can neither be established nor can Islam gain a foothold without Jihad - period.



[ Wa'il al-Shihri - One of the Martyrs of the Manhattan Raid ]

Among those who have declared Jihad to be an individual obligation in our time: Shaykh Hamood bin Uqla al-Shu'aybi, Shaykh Abdullah bin Jabreen, Shaykh Sulayman Abu Ghayth, and Shaykh Sulayman al-Thaniyan (may Allah protect them).
And among those in the front line who declared it an individual obligation: Shaykh Abdullah Azzam (Allah have mercy on him), Shaykh Usama bin Ladin (Allah protect him), and Shaykh Umar Abd al-Rahman (Allah free him).



[ Narrator ]

They left the world and its beauty, splendor, delights and adornments behind them, although it was within their reach, and joined the caravan of the Mujahideen. Their journey took them to the land of the Islamic Emirate, Afghanistan, where the Islamic Shari'ah was applies and Allah's laws implemented, in the shade of the rule of the Islamic Emirate led by the Commander of the Believers, Mulla Muhammad Umar, and a number of the country's sincere scholars, making Afghanistan a land to migrate to and a launching pad for Jihad.

The sons of monotheism were encouraged to flock to it from everywhere, and the Islamic Emirate hastened to welcome those arriving throngs and enabled them to fulfill the obligation of preparing by opening training centers and camps and providing them with protection.



[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

So the picture of the Taliban is clear, because they have allowed us to prepare and train, despite the international pressure, and while knowing that we are getting ready to strike the Huban (idol) of this age, the American forces and the Nato pact. So this is a clear indication of their methodology in expansion by spreading the word "There is no God other than Allah" in the world. They have stated that, but I tell you this as a proof of what they said.



[ Narrator ]

And thus, the Islamic Emirate became a target of the Zionist/Crusader enemy's tyrannical embargo and barbaric bombing.



[ Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri ]

The new Crusade and its apostate helpers targeted the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan because it was the first legitimate Islamic state to be established since the fall of the Ottoman Caliphate seventy years before, and because it ruled by Shari'ah, raised the banner of Jihad, and sheltered the emigrants in Allah's path. And the Islamic Emirate received the strikes of the Crusaders and their agents with patience and contendedness desiring Allah's pleasure and preferring the hereafter to this world.

The Commander of the Believers, Mulla Muhammad Umar Mujahid(may Allah protect him), is a legitimate leader who established a legitimate Islamic state. The Crusaders threatened him with war, destruction and removing him from power unless he handed over his brothers; the emigrant Mujahideen, but he did not budge an inch, and said something which will be written with ink of gold in the history of Islam:
"The issue of Usama in not about one person, it is about the honor of Islam."



[ Voice of Amir-ul-Mu'mineen - Mullah Muhammad Umar Mujahid ]

Look, it has not happened before that Russia and America have been united in their stances - despite the presence of big differences between them - in order to fight a small state like Afghanistan. But our confidence in Allah and reliance and dependence on Him is great, and even if the entire world stands against us, we will not compromise on our principles and beliefs, nor will we deviate from this march of ours, Allah willing, because we believe in our religion and will not compromise on it, because to compromise the religion is death for the Muslim.

The real death for the Muslim is in his compromising of the religion, scorning of it, or ceasing to act according to its rules. The outward death is nothing when we compare it with religious death. If we want life, then adherence to our religion is life. And if we can't have life, then let us have death. Death is a cup from which everyone must drink, so every Muslim must reform himself, devote himself to the affairs of his religion, and strengthen his belief in his Lord, and there he will find victory and success in this world and the next.



[ Narrator ]

In the shade of the Islamic Emirate, the World Islamic Front to fight the Jews and Crusaders was established, representing a major change in the strategy of the Mujahideen, who became convinced that in order to end the unipolar domination of America and its ally Israel, there must be a closing of the Mujahideen ranks and a focus on establishing a solid base for repelling Zionist/Crusader aggression.



[ Rahimullah Yusufzai - Journalist ]

I attended the press conference in May 1998 in Khost where Mr. Bin Ladin declared that from now onward, al-Qaida would be a member of the International Islamic Front for Jihad against the U.S. and Israel, and he said a number of other Islamic groups like the Egyptian al-Jihad have also become the members of this Front.



[ Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri ]

The World Islamic Front for Jihad against the Jews and Crusaders was the proper response to the internationalization of the war against the Mujahideen, after the battle with the Mujahideen changed from a territorial battle to a battle between the Mujahideen and the coalition of America, Israel and the traitorous rulers who help them.
Thus, it was necessary to change the method of confrontation. And the answer was the World Islamic Front for Jihad against the Jews and Crusaders.



[ Narrator ]

And by the way of international media, the demands and warnings reached Western governments and peoples.



[ John Miller - Journalist ]

All hell breaks loose: Missiles are shot up in the air, tracer bullets, and men love to see him[Shaykh Usama]. When he walks into the room, you realize this guy is 6' 3'' or 6' 4'', he never raises his voice, he doesn't pound the table or use his fist, he is not a fiery orator, he's soft-spoken. But the words, the words he was using, were extremely powerful and frightening.

He has three principal issues: One was to remove the U.S. military presence from Saudi Arabia. The other was to end the U.S. support of Israel, particularly as it affected negatively the Palestinians, and three[the third] was at that time, an immediate halt to the bombing of Iraq.



[ Narrator ]

The youth came from every land, heading for the towering peaks to rally around the standard of the Mujahideen, to stand as one to fight the Jews and Crusaders occupying their land, and to avenge their brothers whose blood was deemed lawful in Palestine, Iraq and other Muslim lands.


Our way is a right way
On a straight path
Our way is a right way
On a straight path
On a straight path witnessed by Allah the Great
Our work is for the Compassionate
Our work is for the Compassionate
The crier has called out, so come to Jihad
And make your faith the best of weapons
The crier has called out, so come to Jihad
And make your faith the best of weapons
And death for it is the loftiest of goals
Say Allahu Akbar with a voice that echoes wide
And go to the Gardens with your head high
Our way is a right way
On a straight path
Our way is a right way
On a straight path




[ Narrator ]

Among those who came were the squadrons of martyrdom-seekers whom Allah chose to participate in their awaited martyrdom operations against the Zionist/Crusader coalition and who didn't care about the fewness of those who take this path, nor their lack of capabilities, and so exchanged the easy life for an austere existence, and preferred climbing mountains to riding escalators and chose tents and trenches over villas and palaces.


We are an impervious fortress protecting the sanctuary
With the flame of light, we bind the enemies
And a clear victory is always with us
Our way is a right way
On a straight path
Our way is a right way
On a straight path
On a straight path witnessed by Allah the Great
Our work is for the Compassionate
Our work is for the Compassionate
Our work is for the Compassionate
Our work is for the Compassionate




[ Narrator ]

In the shadow of the submissiveness of the traitorous governments and impotence of the movements and organizations, the Zionist/Crusader enemy continued his tyrannical embargo and destructive bombing of the people of Iraq.



[ Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri ]

America permitted itself to impose a blockage on the Iraqi people, kill a million children from lack of medicine and nutrition, and continue the bombing of Iraqis. And Albright commented on that with impudence, when she said that their objective is worth that price and more. And America imagined that the oppressed ones have no feelings or emotions, and that they wouldn't answer it or retaliate from it.



[ Narrator ]

The retaliation came at the hands of the sons of monotheism, when they blew up the largest den for American and Israeli intelligence in Africa.



[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

America's prestige was dealt a blow, by Allah's grace, when Allah enabled young men who had been in training camps like this in Afghanistan to deal a blow to the prestige of the superpower. The important thing isn't how many were killed in the American embassy in Nairobi and in Dar al-Salam.

What is important are the powerful messages which the blast waves sent to the White House and the American people as a whole: that the people of faith shall not compromise on their religion; that they shall sacrifice themselves and their belongings for "There is no God other than Allah"; and that America shall not dream - merely dream - of security if we don't actually experience it in Palestine, the Land of the Two Sanctuaries and all of the Muslims' countries, with the permission of Allah, the Exalted. And prior to that, Allah had granted them success in Somalia, which forced the American forces to exit defeated and disgraced, in spite of themselves and caring caring about nothing else.



[ Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri ]

The battles in which the Mujahideen of al-Qaida participated, especially those in Mogadishu, had a direct impact on the collapse of the Americans' morale in Somalia and their decision to flee from it. And Operation Restore Hope turned into Operation Sowing Despair in the hearts of the Americans, who had had enticing dreams of occupying East Africa and besieging the Sudan from the south.



[ Narrator ]

And at this sensitive period in time, the American elections were in full swing, elections which George W. Bush won in a doubtful manner, with the backing and support of a gang of military men, conservatives and heads of major corporations, chief among them Donald Rumsfeld, one of the American government's hawks; his deputy, Wolfowitz, known for his racist tendencies; and Dick Cheney, the actual head of the administration, who made it his priority to implement a militant, colonialist policy agenda for the Islamic world.

So he appointed a group of conservatives, adding Douglas Feith and William Lody to Wolfowitz in the Defense Department, and placing John Bolton third in the State Department after Armitage and Powell. Stephen Hadley became chief aide to National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice, while Louis "Scooter" Libby was appointed Cheney's chief of staff. And Dick Cheney continued to abide by the interests of the economic octopus Halliburton, the corporation of which he was president and from which he continued to receive his salary.



[ Dick Cheney ]

Let me tell you about the Halliburton company I ran: I am very proud of what I did at Halliburton and the people of Halliburton are very proud of what they have accomplished, and I frankly don't feel any need to apologize for the way I have spent my time over the last 5 years as the C.E.O. and chairman of major American corporation.



[ Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri ]

The White House gang in the early days of the Bush presidency was a bunch of cocky fools motivated by Crusader hatred, an all-consuming greed, and blind faith in the power of iron and explosives, which led them to imagine that they could take over the entire world, and they pretended to forget that there is something called religion, Islam, morals, honor, and love of martyrdom. They pretended to forget all that because they neither understand nor know nor appreciate it. And thus they threw themselves, their people and their nation into a sea of fire from which they are uselessly trying to rescue themselves. This group has implicated America in a historic quandary: if it pulls out of Afghanistan and Iraq now, it will lose everything, while if it stays on, it will bleed to death.



[ Narrator ]

Despite the colonialist leanings of this administration and illegitimacy of participation in the elections, some of those affiliated with knowledge, like Dr. Safar al-Hawali, encouraged the Muslims to elect Bush, as affirmed by Hawali in his open letter to the American president after the events of the Blessed Tuesday. And on the same level and behind the walls of the Pentagon, preparations were under way for the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. There is no better proof of that than the testimony of the head of the White House's anti-terrorism department at the time.



[ Richard Clarke ]

The President in a very intimidating way left us, me and my staff, with the clear indication that he wanted us to come back with the word that there was an Iraqi hand behind 9/11 because they had been planning to do something about Iraq from before the time they came into office.



[ Narrator ]

Among the reasons for their plans to invade Afghanistan was to secure the passage of gas pipelines from the Caspian Sea to the Arabic Gulf, in addition to restoring and promoting the cultivation of narcotics, which had been prohibited and eliminated by the Islamic Emirate.



[ Brother Azzam the American ]

The American attack on Afghanistan had been planned for a long time. The Americans were boiling mad about a number of things. The Islamic Emirate's eradication of opening opium farming for one, its domination of strategic energy reserves, as well as the control of the proposed gas pipelines from the Caspian Sea and most of all, it's application of Shari'ah law, sheltering of the Mujahideen, and refusal to hand over or even expel Shaykh Usama. And I think, when the Emirate snubbed the American envoy Turkey al-Faisal, that was pretty much it. America had to take revenge, had to draw blood. It basically went berserk.

I personally saw one of the threat letters the Americans sent to the Emirate on late 2000 or in late 2001. It was like something a mafia might send: no heading, no greeting, no signature, no seal. Just a few lines of vague threats which they hoped would intimidate but obviously didn't had the desired effect.



[ Narrator ]

As for Iraq, the new administration continued to implement its plans to destroy it by stepping up air strikes on its infrastructure and tightening the embargo against its people, to pave the way for invading and occupying it in order to gain control of the region's oil fields. And the godfather of this approach was the deputy defense secretary, Wolfowitz.



[ Bob Woodward - Journalist ]

Wolfowitz had been mentioning that a lot. He felt that it would be easy and actually proposed an enclave strategy of going in and seizing the oil fields and so they are in Iraq and using that as a base for other attacks against Saddam's regime. Clearly and formally, Wolfowitz was deriving for considering any way of this idea of invading and taking over a part of the country.



[ Narrator ]

The sons of monotheism continued to prepare in the blessed hills of Afghanistan, certain that the important thing is sincerity and honesty, and not how much or how many, and that the thrones of the oppressors can be crushed with only a little.


My fortress is when I am shaken
By a wave of afflictions
And patience is my provision
In the severity of trials
So let them demolish my house
My house built of mud
Or a tent woven
From the December wind
I will continue to rain on them
The lava of volcanoes
And my anger makes them taste
Humiliation with disgrace
They will not live in my land
For me to be inferior
So let them spill my blood
For it to flow on the earth
They will never rest
In the place of purity
We will erupt like a volcano
And burn like coals
O nation of unbelief
With your red infidels
We shall never be pleased
With humiliation and repression




[ Narrator ]

And while the sons of monotheism were continuing to prepare, a volcano of Islamic anger erupted in the Blessed Land in response to the murderer Sharon's desecration of the destination of our Prophet's (peace be upon him) Night Journey. And the Zionist/Crusader criminality didn't stop there: no, their criminality was crowned by the slaughter of innocent children in the arms of their fathers.



[ Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri ]

The events of the al-Aqsa Intifada left an open wound in the heart of every Muslim. Every Muslim, as he watched the bullets pierce the body of Muhammad al-Durra felt that those bullets were piercing the body of his own child, and that there must be a response, there must be a deterrence and there must be retaliation.



[ Narrator ]

The earthshaking response and retaliation came with the Mujahideen's targeting of the American destroyer USS Cole, which had been roaming the region to protect the Zionist entity.



[ Shaykh Usama bin Ladin ]

Allah - Exalted is He - granted your brothers victory, may He accept from them all, in Aden 9 months ago, and they dealt a blow to the heart of American prestige... this supposed god, the Hubal of the age, which has made itself a god worshipped beside Allah, legislating for the people as it pleases and playing with the blood and honor of the Muslims at will. So the striking of the Cole came as a success granted by Allah, striking not only the American military, but also the most modern piece of military equipment in the world running on the seas. And you heard how they used to describe it: that it can fend off large numbers on many fronts - land, sea, and air - but Allah the Exalted made its striking easy for two young men who believed that what Allah the Exalted has is better.



[ Narrator ]

The attack caused a collapse of morale among the American government and people, including high-ranking military men, foremost among them the forces chairman Tommy Franks.



[ Tommy Franks ]

I turned off the light above my seat and tried to sleep before landing in Amman, but I couldn't. This attack on the destroyer Cole bore the fingerprints of al-Qaida who had been silent for a number of months. And it was obvious that the operation was carried out after a lot of planning.




[ Narrator ]

After the crushing defeat suffered by the infidels of the Cross at Aden, the Mujahideen breathed the fragrance of jubilation and their hearts filled with certainty of the approach of their date with victory. And among those facing emigrating to Allah were the artisans of glory, the heroes of Manhattan raid, who rid themselves of the life of luxury and comfort for subsistence living in their food and drink and entire life, realizing that luxury is the enemy of Jihad and that what Allah has is better and longer lasting.



[ The Mujahideen ]

Allah is the one who chooses. Allah doesn't choose just anyone for this. The bombing of Nairobi and Dar ul-Salam were successful. May Allah accept it from the brothers.
Allah is the Greatest. Frankly, the brothers, by the grace of Allah, opened a new door to injuring the enemy. Then the Cole operation came their way. After Nairobi, they started guarding all the embassies, because they thought the next strike was going to be against embassies. But all praise is due to Allah, it came where they least expected it: in a destroyer, which they said had so many weapons and strikes at a long distance, but it all turned out to be false, by the grace of Allah. We ask Allah to make the next operation a shock for them.
Allah willing, it will fall on their heads from where they least expect it. The love of martyrdom in Allah's path is the weapon with which America and unbelief will be destroyed, with Allah's permission, because if a person wants to kill himself in the path of Allah, how can you stop him?
How can you deal with someone like that? We ask Allah to grant us success.


Let the Kuffar hear our news
We ride our steeds without a problem
We will wage Jihad until we die
And meet Allah on the Day of Resurrection
We praise Allah for the day our Lord gave us victory
The day when we destroyed the Cole on the sea
We praise Allah for the day our Lord gave us victory
The day when we destroyed the Cole on the sea
A little raft made clear our threat
And blew up tyranny and disgraced it
Let the Kuffar hear our news
We ride our steeds without a problem
We will wage Jihad until we die



[ Narrator ]

While the idol-kings were rushing to secure their thrones, and for that, permitting the Zionist/Crusader coalition to take control of the countries of Islam and the Ummah's sacred places and destinies, the first sign of unity and closing of ranks began to appear from Afghanistan. And Allah blessed those good efforts made by the sincere sons of this Ummah, with the uniting of the groups al-Qaida and al-Jihad.


O young men, hasn't the time come to return
To the oasis of faith, for you to rule
And tomorrow the world will be happy with you
And for the arrogant and the stubborn to be subdued
O young men, come to glory
Come and climb the high mountains
Come on and shout, all you men
Come say to all the people, "We don't care"




[ Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri ]

The union between al-Qaida and al-Jihad was in response to the legal obligation and genuine need. To combat the fierce Zionist/Crusader war against Islam and Muslims, it was illogical to remain divided. And I call Allah to witness that I consider this union among the best of deeds and one which I ask Allah to accept from us. And only Allah knows the blessings and boons which it brought us. It is enough that it cooled the chests of the Muslims and choked the throats of the unbelievers. And we reach out to every sincere worker to ask him to join this blessed caravan in the path of Allah.



[ Narrator ]

Even as the Mujahideen were making great advances in their preparations to strike the Hubal of the age, there were incessant calls and appeals from symbols affiliated with knowledge and Da'wah which stirred up doubts and baseless arguments in the ranks of the youth of Islam. The first of those doubts was that we are powerless to confront America and those with her.



[ Shaykh Abdullah Azzam (May Allah have mercy on him) ]

However, men, as they make their accounts, often disregard the superpower which directs the universe, and to which all matters return. "To Allah belongs the unseen of the heavens and the earth, and to Him goes back every affair [for decision]. So worship Him, and put your trust in Him. And your Lord is not unaware of what you do." (11:123)
They overlook, as they make their human and worldly considerations, the statement of Allah, the Exalted,
"Isn't Allah enough for his servant?" (39:36) Of course!
"Isn't Allah enough for his servant?" Certainly!
"And they try to frighten you with others beside him!" Like the "superpowers."
"And they try to frighten you with others beside him! And he who Allah causes to stray no one can guide." (39:36)

"And for he who Allah guides, no one can lead astray. Isn't Allah Exalted in power, Lord of retribution? " (39:37)
Without a doubt! The people disregard this issue. And you will only hear the Muslims repeating, "How can such-and-such thing happen when America isn't happy about it? And how did such-and-such action succeed when Russia is angry?" It is as if - and Allah is high above what they think, greatly Exalted - it is as if America and Russia have become gods next to Allah, the Exalted. Why? Because Allah cannot be beaten, cannot be defeated. His power cannot be lowered. And this is what has been forgotten by the major powers and those who revolve around the major powers, to the extent that it has been forgotten by many good Muslims. Yes: Allah wanted us to prove to the Muslim Ummah that "I am the Powerful, Almighty and Proud," and that when any Muslim people, however weak, illiterate and impoverished it might be, makes Jihad and defends its religion, Allah will grant it victory.



[ Narrator ]

Another group raised a baseless argument that said that the youth going out for Jihad will leave the country to the disobedient ones and wrongdoers.


[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

And here is a problem brought up by those with an extreme attachment to means and methods, saying, "You advocate emigration. But is it right for all people to go and leave the country to the disobedient ones and the wrongdoers?" And so on.

I tell them that when the Messenger, peace be upon him, ordered emigration and it became an individual duty for his Companions, with whom Allah was pleased, no one made these baseless excuses or said, "How can we leave Mecca to Abu Jahl?" The people of today make these excuses because of their distance from the true conviction and reliance which Allah ordered. And then, when the sufficiency has been reached, when - Allah permitting - a few thousand good, healthy and disciplined young men who love Allah and His Messenger go out, we will be the first to say to the Arabs and Muslims, "The sufficiency has been reached."

Do you know the number which we want - the percentage of the Muslims which we want? We want one man from every 100,000 Muslims. Over there they're shouting and vilifying us, saying, "Usama wants to empty the country for the unbelievers, wrongdoers and idol-kings."

Oh servants of Allah, fear Allah!
We want one man out of every 100,000. What harm is there in that? How many Muslims die each day? We ask Allah to guide us all.



[ Narrator ]

Another group questioned the reason behind the Mujahideen's focus on striking the Americans instead of making their main target the Jews, who killed and displaced our brothers in Palestine.



[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

American and Israel are two sides of the same coin. So if you see that your enemy has protected his right ear and fortified it well, don't waste your time hitting the right ear: cut off the left ear and he will die. The result is the same. The Americans are spread all over the world, and they don't have a doctrine like the Jews, who want to stay in Palestine. And they are backers of the Jews. After they were hit in Khobar, CNN came and met with the comrades of those killed who were themselves involved in the incident. They were crying. The host asked the American soldier, "What's your name?"

He replied, "So-and-so son of so-and-so" Bush, son of Bush. [laughs]

The host asked, "What do you want now?"

He said, "I want to go back to my country."

So this is his wish. He has one foot here and one in his country.
Antarah was asked, "What is it that you do to make the people fear you?"
He answered, "I look in the faces of the people, and go first for the one who looks weak and cut off his head first, because it's easy. And when his blood is spilled, the strong ones get scared."
So the Americans don't have a cause, neither in Palestine nor on the Arabian Peninsula. The soldier, that is - his leaders have a cause, but as a soldier, he wavers. And their interests are spread all over the globe, so it's easy to strike them. Inasmuch as we hit them fast and raise the morale of the Muslims - you, by the grace of Allah, are the fruit of past strikes - the Muslims are honored, and they feel that Islam is strong and is able to win against these unbelievers. And just to give you the good news, there are also some strikes against the Jews coming up.


[ Narrator ]

And some claimed that the Mujahideen target innocent civilians in their operations.


[ Shaykh Ayman al-Zawahiri ]

There is no difference in the Shari'ah between a soldier and a civilian. Rather the Shari'ah divides people into combatant and non-combatant. And the combatant is anyone who helps in the fight with his body, wealth or opinion. According to this criterion, the peoples of the West are combatant, because they have willingly elected their leaders and representatives in the parliaments, who draw up the policies which murder our children, occupy our countries, and plunder our treasures. And they are the ones who pay the taxes which fund these policies, and provide the armies which attack us with troops, backing and support. We are obliged to defend our faith, children and resources. America and the West attack our cities with 7-ton bombs, carpet bombing and chemical weapons, then they demand that we confront them with our light weapons only. That's not possible. As they bomb, they will be bombed, and as they kill, they will be killed.

The Truth, Exalted is He, says,
"The prohibited month for the prohibited month, and for all things prohibited, there is a law of retaliation. So if anyone attacks you, attack him as he attacked you." (2:194)

And the entire world knows that the American army, despite its large amount of equipment, is very weak on the ground, and that its basic tactic in combat is the bombing which destroys everything and kill the residents, to force its enemy to give up. And then they demand that we not strike them in their countries?



[ Narrator ]

Another group of those affiliated with Da'wah put forward the argument that now is the time for the Ummah's youth to seek knowledge and receive spiritual training, and that it is much too early to push the youth into the battlefield.


[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

This misconception that is raised today about the seeking of knowledge was never raised in the time of the pious predecessors, with whom Allah was pleased. And if a person were to reflect a little, these arguments will disappear and cease to exist. I mention, just as a reminder, the day of the conquest of Mecca and those who became Muslim on that day - Abu Sufyan and those with him, Allah was pleased with them all. They embraced Islam on the day of the conquest.

When was the conquest, servants of Allah? It was on 20th of Ramadan, right? They were polytheists, sons of polytheists, grandsons of polytheists; i.e., polytheism has run in their blood for a long time, to the extent that after they became Muslim, one of them, if he swore out of excitement, would swear by Lat and Uzza and then have to renew his faith and ask forgiveness. So they became Muslim on the day of the conquest, and the Hunayn campaign was in the month of Shawwal. Got it? They became Muslim on the day of the conquest, after doing what they did. The Messenger of Allah said to them, "What do you think I will do to you?" They said, "You are a noble brother, son of a noble brother" - because today there is a sword, so the hearts know the truth. The sword helps the unbelievers to know the truth and know Islam.

OK, how many days are left in Ramadan? At most, ten. And the Hunayn campaign was in Shawwal. So they, according to the Fiqh of the people today, according to the knowledge-seekers of today, what would they have to do? Not just seek knowledge: first they must understand the fundamentals of the religion. This is a polytheist, son of a polytheist, grandson of a polytheist, great grandson of a polytheist. But the infallible one who doesn't speak according to whims didn't say, "Abu Sufyan, you and the Muslims of the conquest stay in Mecca and with you will stay Abdullah bin Masud, Abdullah bin Abbas, Umar bin al-Khattab, Ali, Abdullah bin Umar, and Zaid bin Thabit (Allah was pleased with them)," those famous scholars of the Companions.

He didn't say, "Stay here and we'll leave the Companions with you for them to educate you." This doesn't happen, because the word "There is no God other than Allah" is the spirit of the Ummah. This is an Ummah of Jihad. The purpose of knowledge is to act according to it and to wage Jihad with it. As for us learning it without acting according to it, this is a problem. Today, we are acting on knowledge by the grace of Allah. Were it not for knowledge, we wouldn't have known that Jihad is our individual duty and we wouldn't have known what Allah wants from us. So knowledge is needed for action. Knowledge is not an objective in and of itself. Knowledge is needed to show us the way to worship Allah the Exalted as He ordered.


[ Narrator ]

In the midst of the flow of baseless misconceptions and flimsy arguments concerning Jihad and its people, the Mujahideen left the neglectful ones behind them, surrounded by their doubts, and continued to make their way towards their desired goal. And Shaykh Abu Abdullah personally supervised all stages of the plan, even keeping tabs on the stage which the teams of pilots had reached, through the coordinator of the attacks, Abu Ubaidah - Ramzi bin al-Shibh - and the head of logistical support, Zahir - Zakariyya al-Housawi.

And planning for September 11th did not take place behind computer monitors or radar screens, nor inside military command and control centers, but was surrounded with divine protection in an atmosphere brimming with brotherliness, sincerity, and a love for sacrificing life and belongings to help Allah's religion.

The Manhattan Raid - Part 2







Production by As-Sahab Media
[Al Qaida's Media Department]


In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

"The sacred month is for the sacred month, and for the prohibited things, there is the Law of Equality (Qisâs). Then whoever transgresses the prohibition against you, you transgress likewise against him."
(Al-Baqarah 2:194)



[ Narrator ]

The brother pilots continued their preparation in complete calm deep inside America, disregarding the huge media ruckus surrounding American security and intelligence capabilities whose noise filled the world. And the brother pilots taught the youth of the Ummah a powerful lesson in sacrifice, courage, certainty in Allah's victory, and true reliance on Him. And they reined in the mouths of those who rant that those who undertake martyrdom operations are unemployed, empty failures in life. These brothers abandoned a life of luxury and ease after the world had opened its doors to them, and they bought what Allah has. We consider them to be so and Allah is their Reckoner.


[ Brother Azzam the American ]

All the brothers who took part in the raids on America were dedicated, strong willed, highly-motivated individuals with a burning concern for Islam and Muslims and they had to be chosen for such a difficult mission; they were definitely not failures looking for a way out, look at the pilots - Muhammad Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, Ziad al-Jarrah, and Hani Hanjour - all of them had lived and studied in the West. All of them had the world within their reach if they wanted it. But how could they live with themselves if they were to enjoy this worldly life while their Ummah burns?


[ Narrator ]

The visits of the Mujahid Shaykh Abu Abdullah to the training camps continued, in order to select the strike force for the Blessed Tuesday attack and other elements for carrying out martyrdom operations subsequent to it, with Allah's permission.


[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

Some people think that the issue is training only. One of them will say, "I already know this!" Even if you know it, take it again. But there are other purposes: the elements must get to know one another, because this Jihad doesn't rest on one person. The members of the squadron must know one another in order to build confidence between them. And the instructor must acquaint himself and write the reports - which, in the end, reach me - that this brother was patient, showed endurance, was well-mannered and tolerant, and so on. This one is a candidate for martyrdom operations abroad, whereas one whose temper is short and patient thin won't be able to bear up on the outside. And we can only know that from here.

Your brother in Nairobi spent nine months in an apartment while their brothers smuggled them the TNT and they pounded it. Can you be that patient? You aren't patient with us here two hours, so how can we send you there for nine months? A lot of things stem from the time you spend here, and your reward is there if you intend to emigrate, prepare and perform Ribat. So for Allah is all praise.


[ Narrator ]

And Allah chose from among the candidates for participation in the martyrdom operations a group of unique heroes to be the young strong-arms who would take control of the planes until the moment of impact. Their only weapons, after their certainty in Allah and reliance on Him, was nothing but blades which people use to cut paper and open packages.

The heroes of the raids received their intensive training at the hands of the martyr Abu Turab the Jordanian, who had the honor to take part in the previous Afghan Jihad. The knights of the two raids received at the hands of their instructor numerous martial arts. They trained in how to deal with security forces and the clandestine guards inside the plane, and learned how to take over the navigation cabin, enable the pilots to fly the planes towards the targets, and ensure protection for them until the moment when the aircraft crash into their targets.

Tighten your blood in your veins and rise up
And don't be afraid if you're going to glory
Tighten your blood in your veins and rise up
And don't be afraid if you're going to glory
Don't talk or hesitate or suppose
Just wage Jihad and your courage will be strong, with Allah's help
Don't talk or hesitate or suppose
Just wage Jihad and your courage will be strong, with Allah's help


The visits of the Mujahid Shaykh Abu Abdullah to the training camps continued to encourage the youth to sacrifice themselves cheaply in the path of Allah and to motivate them to join the caravan of the knights of the martyrdom operations. The champions competed in this arena and the lovers thronged doors which had been thrown wide open to them. And all of them answered the call of Allah obediently and expectantly.



[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

So talk yourselves into martyrdom operations. Encourage yourselves a lot. In the beginning, you won't be used to the idea, and you'll think it's a difficult thing. But you only came here because in your heart is love of Allah and love of His Messenger, peace be upon him. We consider you to be so and we don't exonerate anyone before Allah. So talk to yourself, because to the same degree that the number of young men who carry out martyrdom operations increases, the time of victory gets closer, with Allah's permission.


[ Narrator ]

So the heroes knew the virtue of the work which they were to embark on, and its great status in Allah's eyes, and that it is among the best ways to get close to Allah. And the youth realized what others did not; that the difficulty of direct confrontation between the people of faith and the people of unbelief doesn't mean surrendering to them, and that with martyrdom operations, it will be easy to infiltrate their ranks and inflict huge losses on them.



[ Wa'il al-Shihri - One of the Martyrs of the Manhattan Raid ]

And when I and my brothers carried out research and asked the people of knowledge about what will weaken them and upset their plans, we found that the martyrdom operation is the best way to wound the enemies and terrorize them, especially when confronting them with regular, conventional tactics is not feasible. As for its legal status, most people of knowledge, past and present, have permitted it and shown that it is a great way to bring oneself near to Allah, the Exalted.


[ Narrator ]

At this point in time, the Muslims in Palestine were suffering the ugliest types of oppression and persecution, and the hearts of the Mujahideen were breaking and full of rage towards what their brothers in the Blessed Land were undergoing. And the Mujahideen's primary concern became how to life this oppression from the Muslims in Palestine in particular and the world's Muslims in general.


[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

Your brothers and sisters in Palestine, due to the severity of the oppression they are experiencing, went out a few days ago carrying banners with which they addressed the Mujahideen here. They said, "We are waiting for assistance from the people of Afghanistan." You have been addressed and your names mentioned, so fear Allah the Exalted and give victory to this great word, and give victory to the people of "There is no God other than Allah," and you will be successful, Allah willing.

To our brothers in Palestine, we say, the blood of your children is the blood of our children, and your blood is our blood. The blood is the same and the destruction is the same, and we call Allah to witness that we shall not abandon you until victory is complete or we taste what Hamza bin Abd al-Mutallib tasted. And we give you the good news that the reinforcements of Islam are on their way and that the reinforcements of the Yemen will continue with the permission of Allah, the One, the Only.


[ Narrator ]

Although the addresses of the Mujahid Shaykh Abu Abdullah in the period rarely appeared in the media, the released of some statements motivated the enemy to declare a state of high alert and call up all his fleets and warships in anticipation of new attacks similar to the destruction of the American destroyer, USS Cole.


[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

Just days ago, America warns its nationals in the region to be careful and take precautions, then raises the level of readiness for the American forces in Kuwait, then two days later, raises the threat level for the forces in Bahrain and Doha to its highest level. And two or three days after that, it orders all its employees in the American embassy in Sana'a and their families to leave Sana'a for America because there is information that terrorist operations targeting them are imminent.

Then early yesterday morning, the radio stations announce - and your brothers recorded the report on tape - that two American investigative teams in Yemen, one from the navy and the other from the FBI, have left Yemen in a hurry, in compliance to orders from the American government because they received specific and credible information that the Mujahideen are preparing to strike them around this time. And for Allah is the credit.


[ Narrator ]

The training of this group of glory-makers and the martyrdom-lovers continued, to properly prepare them to join their brothers to properly prepare them to join their brothers who preceded them to the land of the enemy, where the battle would be fought. And during the training, the champions combined hearing and obeying with distinguished performance of the exercise given them, which they would spend most of their day learning before applying it by slaughtering camels. But the heroes of the raids didn't depend on their strength and power or on the special training they received. Rather, the depended on Allah, the Exalted, who is Able to do all things. And during this period, they were closer to Allah than at any other time.


The clatter of the war is music to his ears
And the echo of the machine gun waters his heart
Steadfast, in his chest a thousand echoes
Of the terrifying sounds of battle
The clatter of the war is music to his ears
And the echo of the machine gun waters his heart
Steadfast, in his chest a thousand echoes
Of the terrifying sounds of battle
So silent, you think him ill, but
If he speaks, how great his light
He loves death even if the people have kneeled
To seek this life in complete comfort
He loves death even if the people have kneeled
To seek this life in complete comfort
The clatter of the war is music to his ears
And the echo of the machine gun waters his heart
Steadfast, in his chest a thousand echoes
Of the terrifying sounds of battle
His concern in his chest burns
From the distressing concerns of the Muslims
Glory is reflected in his eyes
So they fill with sadness and his tears flow
His concern in his chest burns
From the distressing concerns of the Muslims
Glory is reflected in his eyes
So they fill with sadness and his tears flow
He came with the soul of a death-defying believer
With him in the fight is the glory of Islam
He fires for a near victory
Or to ransom the religion he meets his death
He fires for a near victory
Or to ransom the religion he meets his death
His concern in his chest burns
From the distressing concerns of the Muslims
Glory is reflected in his eyes
So they fill with sadness and his tears flow
A lone pioneer, his wound bleeds
His resolve like Umar's, he refuses lowliness
His resolve is not shaken by armies
Or a coward who kicks up dust
A lone pioneer, his wound bleeds
His resolve like Umar's, he refuses lowliness
His resolve is not shaken by armies
Or a coward who kicks up dust
Helping the religion is in his heart
He follows the truth and not the sycophants
He follows the footsteps of a timeless generation
Which brought to the world guidance and benefit



[ Narrator ]

On the soil of Kandahar and on a number of occasions, evenings of poetry and inspiring speeches were held under the supervision of the Mujahid Shaykh Abu Abdullah, who made certain that the heroes of the raids participated in those parties by reciting poems and songs in front of the guests, in order to show the youth of the Ummah living examples of heroism.


[ Mohand al-Shihri - One of the Martyrs of the Manhattan Raid ]

We congratulate the Muslims on the occasion of the blessed Eid, and we congratulate our Shaykh Usama bin Ladin on this fine occasion, and we ask Allah that the next Eid be a celebration of victory and establishment for the Muslims. I read this poem to you before, but there's nothing wrong with reading it again:

O youth of truth
Come to eternity
Prepare to go out
For unbelief has snarled
From Aden to London
From Kabul to Washington
From Mecca to Rome
And from Medina to Dublin
So forge the passports
And oppose all who bootlick
And whoever finds a way
Should come to us
Light a fire in the infidels
To raise from us the shame
Don't fear or be afraid
But say "I am rough"
We shall water the ground with our blood
To raise the banner of truth
And we shall water the ground with their blood
And their banner of unbelief shall fall
So no, by Allah, I don't care for air or ground weapons
And TNT is better than them: it heals our hard wounds
Palestine calls us, O sons of Abu Mihjan
"My sons' blood is spilled, and the rulers of the Arabs are mirages"





[ Narrator ]





At the same time, America's military plans were in place to strike Afghanistan, and the enemy took the necessary arrangements in that regard as it awaited the launch hour, as stated subsequently by the American general Tommy Franks, who said that the preparations for war continued up to the 10th of September.





[ Brother Azzam the American ]






By the middle of 2001, the threats and warnings were becoming more frequent and more specific. I remember hearing a former Pakistani diplomat telling the BBC months before September 11th that the Americans had informed their allies during their meeting in Germany of their plan to invade Afghanistan in the autumn before the first snow fall, which is what they eventually did. So we knew what was coming. The question was, do we sit back and wait or do we surprise them with a pre-empty strike?





[ Narrator ]







On the other side, and after the pilots completed the training stage and became ready to execute their missions, the surveillance team finished gathering the necessary data on the preliminary targets which had been determined previously. And following consultation and exchange of opinions according to the results of the surveillance, four strategic targets were chosen for the military, psychological and economic impact their hitting would have on the American government and people. Next, the documents office supervised teaching the heroes, how to forge official documents and papers and the appropriate ways to traverse security barriers, before they left Kandahar.






[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]






And we gave you the good news a few weeks ago that brothers of yours have departed, carrying their heads in their hands, seeking death where it is found for the pleasure of Allah, the Exalted. So I ask Allah the Exalted to grant them victory and direct their fire, for He is Custodian of that and Able to do it.



[ Announcement after a few days ]



The news, by the grace of Allah, is delightful. The brother is asking about the brothers who went out for martyrdom operations in Allah's path. Their news is delightful and their going out has terrified Unbelief International, by Allah's grace. And I strongly advise you to increase your prayers for them and beseech Allah the Exalted in your prayers to grant them success, make firm their foothold, and strengthen their hearts for He is Custodian of that and able to do it.



[ Narrator ]



Because of the number of announcements made by the Shaykh about the operations, some of the brothers asked if this wouldn't have a negative effect on plans for the operation.





[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]






Fine, when we talk here, we know that our words must reach them. So we give you the good news and ask you to pray on one hand, and we wage a psychological war against the enemy and shake his prestige in front of the world on the other. So there's no harm in it.





[ Narrator ]







The Mujahideen spoke about their intentions to strike the Hubal of the age many times before the blessed strikes, despite the danger that posed to the operation, in order to shake the prestige of the enemy in front of the world; break his ability to ward off the strikes when they came; before it's too late; and to call on the leaders among the sons of the Ummah to contribute to the taking of the Ummah's crucial decisions. And in this is a response to those affiliating with Islamic work who stigmatize the Mujahideen as detached from the Ummah in the taking of the fateful decisions which concern the Ummah's future.




[ Wa'il al-Shihri - One of the Martyrs of the Manhattan Raid ]

So to our virtuous scholars: your Islamic Ummah is waiting for you, whether by coming yourselves or by issuing Fatwas to take us out of this bitter state of affairs. The Ummah's youth need role models who sacrifice and exhort, especially from those like you, and they have confidence in you, so it is your duty to awaken the people and incite them to Jihad and imitation of the Prophetic biography, because you will be asked by Allah about your knowledge - what did you do with it and did you faithfully relay it to the people? And by your telling them that Jihad is only a collective duty, you are prolonging the humiliation and disgrace of the Ummah. So fear Allah, act for a Day when the people are gathered for accounting and the man will flee from his brother, mother and father. They will stand before Allah to retaliate from you if you didn't fulfill the trust of knowledge and applying what Allah and His Messenger, peace be upon him, ordered.

If we reflect on the life of the Chosen One, peace be upon him, we find that he spent his life in Da'wah and emigration and Jihad. He participated - peace be upon him - in 28 military expeditions to raise the banner of monotheism, and emigrated from his country to escape with his religion, so why haven't you sacrificed and emigrated to the land of Afghanistan, where the Law of Allah rules, or extracted yourself from under the boots of the apostate tyrants to prepare and exhort and take the Ummah out of its current state. That will not take place through debating and talking a lot; there must be sacrifice and giving. Where are we from His statement:

"O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that, when you are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, you cling heavily to the earth? Do you prefer the life of this world to the hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life as compared with the hereafter. Unless you go forth, He will punish you with a painful punishment, and put others in your place. But Him you would not harm in the least, for Allah has power over all things." (9:38-39)


[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

Allah says, "Whoever disbelieves in the idol and believes in Allah has grasped the strongest handhold." (2:256)

So to disbelieve this idol is a must, and the best of good deeds is that you order the people to "There is no God other than Allah" and fight for that, as stated by the predecessors, with whom Allah was pleased.


[ Narrator ]

Meanwhile, the Mujahideen were closely following events around them, and studying the reaction of the Arab and Islamic street to these events, in order to know how prepared the people were to receive the operation, and in order to draw up a strategic plan for the repercussions that would follow the attack.


[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

So these events and the other repercussions have an impact on the hearts of the Muslims, young and old. Perhaps your brothers in the information department will send a cassette recorded only a week ago, after the closing of the embassy in Yemen, of a debate on al-Jazeerah between a man who supports normalization with the Jews and another man who opposes normalization. They ran an opinion poll over a period of two days, and broadcast the results during the program. The number of participants in this poll was nearly 29,000 from the states of the region.

The percentage who supported striking the American military was 91%. This is a large number and an extraordinary transformation from a little while ago. So for Allah is all praise. We'll ask our brothers in information to send a copy, Allah willing. This is a miracle, servants of Allah. A few years ago, a person would hide and be scared and was a stranger even among his family. And suddenly, this great help falls from the sky, by the grace of Allah the Exalted, making Jihad acceptable, and this Ummah, from East to West, has become an advocate of Jihad. So for Allah is the credit.


[ Narrator ]

The heroes recorded their last wills and testaments in which they clarified the reasons and motivations behind their carrying out this blessed act. These messages also included advice and directions for the Islamic Ummah and exposed the traitorous apostate governments. And the martyrdom seekers didn't forget to send messages to the American government and people.


[ Hamza al-Ghamdi - One of the Martyrs of the Manhattan Raid ]

Finally I send this message to every American in the Muslim lands in general and to the American forces and government in the land of the Two Sanctuaries in particular, and I say to them words fed by the honor of Allah and watered by my blood. I swear by Allah, my shadow will not leave your shadow until the most impatient of us dies. And I say to America: if it wants its armies and people to be safe, then it must withdraw all its forces from the Muslim lands and depart from all our countries.

If not, then let it await the men, prepare its coffins and dig graves for its citizens, and let it prepare to taste the woe and destruction which is coming the way of its leaders and people, with Allah's permission.

O Allah, make it fall on our hands.
O Allah, water the tree of Jihad with out blood.
O Allah, accept us as martyrs and gather us with the Prophets, truthful ones and martyrs, and what fine companions they are.
O Allah, send prayers and peace on the best of Creation and gather us with him in the highest garden of Paradise.

O Allah, have I conveyed? O Allah, be my witness.
O Allah, have I conveyed? O Allah, be my witness.
O Allah, have I conveyed? O Allah, be my witness.


[ Wa'il al-Shihri - One of the Martyrs of the Manhattan Raid ]

As for this message of mine, I ask Allah the Great, Lord of the Great Throne, that it only reach you after this unbelieving nation caves in with our blood. I ask Him to punish them at our hands, and that He makes use of you to complete this path after us, stand next to the word of monotheism whose helpers have become few and remove humiliation and disgrace from our Ummah by expelling the Americans from the Arabian Peninsula, expelling the Jews from Palestine and expelling all unbelievers and trespassers from the Muslim lands.

And respond to the order of Allah, "And fight them on until there is no more persecution and the religion in its entirety is for Allah's" (9:39) and His order, "Fight them! Allah will punish them at your hands, and disgrace them and help you (to victory) over them, and heal the breasts of a believing people." (9:14)


[ Narrator ]

The arrival of the strike force in the battlefield was completed, and they joined the squad commanders - the four pilots - and each squadron was handed the target assigned to it, as well as the execution plan and date of battle, which wouldn't be long in coming.


[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

We are at the gates of a major fight. We are preparing these days to fight the infidels. your brothers went out to strike, and they went out to strike. America and Russia came out wanting to strike the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan and the Mujahideen in Afghanistan. So I advise myself and you to be patient and God-fearing.


[ Brother Azzam the American ]

In our side, everything that the al-Qaida was doing was preparation for the Manhattan and the Washington Raids and the expected Crusader invasion. The training got tougher, there was a greater emphasis on Islamic and political education and the media and Da'wah outreach was developed and expanded. Everyone knew that something big was offing including the Americans but of course only a select few knew the details.

The Americans had been on high-alert ever since the bombing of the USS Cole closing their embassies and issuing travel alerts almost weekly, because they had rather foolishly assumed that whatever was going to happen would happen outside America like every other major Jihadi operation with the exception of the first World Trade Center bombing: I personally thought that the major attack which everyone was talking about would take place somewhere in the Islamic region like the Arabian Peninsular for instance. It never crossed my mind that some thing might happen on enemy soil.


[ Narrator ]

In Afghanistan, the domestic preparations began, in order to be ready for the counterinsurgency. The Mujahideen dug camouflaged trenches in the hills and reinforced the Islamic Emirate's frontlines by increasing the number of fighters in them, especially those with military expertise. And the basic needs of the fronts, including equipment, ammunition and logistical support, were met. And all of that was at the direction of the Mujahid Shaykh Abu Abdullah, may Allah protect him, and under the direct supervision of a number of prominent senior military commanders.


[ Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin ]

We are about to move, with Allah's permission, to a number of places. And those of you who graduate from the courses may join us later, for us to seek their help after seeking the help of Allah, the Exalted. And the nature of the conditions after the strike will require you of things easy for those for whom Allah makes it easy. So be patient with us for a while until victory is achieved, with Allah's permission.

Today, by Allah's grace, we are redrawing the map of the Islamic world, for it to become one state under the banner of the Caliphate, with Allah's permission. And today, by His grace, we are writing a pure history of the people of Faith in this age in which oppression, tyranny, corruption and unbelief have spread all over the world. So happy is he whom Allah steadies besides the banner of monotheism.

The word is the word of the sword
Until the wrongs are righted
The despicable ones have even wronged
The Messenger of the people of strong will
Our sanctuaries would not have been desecrated
Had the lions surrounded them
The filthiest of bandits have attacked us
So where are the swords?
They have forgotten that we are defiant ones
We defend like lions
We are those who trampled with our steeds
The thrones of empires
The thrones of empires
The word is the word of the sword
Until the wrongs are righted
The despicable ones have even wronged
The Messenger of the people of strong will
The word is the word of the sword
Until the wrongs are righted
The despicable ones have even wronged
The Messenger of the people of strong will
We are those who built our forts
Out of skulls
Which we brought from the land of the tyrant
By force and on the top of the booty
Our Messenger is the one who made us
Noble builders of glory
Our Messenger is the sun of truth
Who lit the face of the world
Who lit the face of the world
The word is the word of the sword
Until the wrongs are righted
The despicable ones have even wronged
The Messenger of the people of strong will
He lit the lamp of a night
Black from misguidance
And created from a few people
A generation coming with the dawn
So they destroyed a head of aggression
And humiliated every oppressor
War against every aggressor
And peace for every peaceful one
And peace for every peaceful one
The word is the word of the sword
Until the wrongs are righted
The despicable ones have even wronged
The Messenger of the people of strong will
The word is the word of the sword
Until the wrongs are righted
The despicable ones have even wronged
The Messenger of the people of strong will
We are those who built our forts
Out of skulls
Our Messenger is the one who made us
Noble builders of glory
Our Messenger is the sun of truth
Who lit the face of the world
Who lit the face of the world
The word is the word of the sword
Until the wrongs are righted
The despicable ones have even wronged
The Messenger of the people of strong will
The word is the word of the sword
Until the wrongs are righted
The despicable ones have even wronged
The Messenger of the people of strong will
He lit the lamp of a night
Black from misguidance
And created from a few people
A generation coming with the dawn
So they destroyed a head of aggression
And humiliated every oppressor
War against every aggressor
And peace for every peaceful one
And peace for every peaceful one

War against every aggressor
And peace for every peaceful one
