great people, God willing; O magnanimous mujahideen, lovers of
martyrdom, and God's loved ones; O magnanimous men of our
Armed Forces wherever you hold on tightly to the weapons of
the valiant resistance; O magnanimous men and glorious women
in the field of resistance and raising the roaring voice of
right against the criminals and weakness. I am addressing you
all regardless of all your job titles and ranks, and wherever
the slogan in the name of God, Iraq, and the nation under the
banner of God is great and come to join the jihad is shouted.
God's peace, mercy, and blessings be upon you. May you enjoy
many happy returns of the day. May God bless your Ramadan and
the Id that follows it. May your fasting be accepted, God
martyrs are in paradise while the dead of the louts and our
other enemies are in hell. O God, make this month of Ramadan
the prelude to and foundation of victory as it was during the
great Badr [battle], [which marked] the era of the vanguards
of Arabs and Muslims who were honoured by faith in you.
and sons! Before the US-Zionist-British aggression, and that
of those who allied with them against Iraq, we said that the
evil alliance can harm Iraq, and that it can kill, destroy and
plunder, but at the same time, it can expose the true nature
of America and Zionism and their slogans, through which they
deceived those who were deceived in the world or succumbed for
a significant period of time.
evil ones have placed themselves in the same dead end that the
almighty wanted to place them.
said this and we also said with entrenched faith and with the
firmness of whom you know as a mujahid among your ranks for
dozens of years [meaning Saddam], that the evil ones will not
be able to occupy and colonize Iraq.
themselves said what you heard from them at the time. They
imagined and they made others imagine too that they are going
on a picnic to occupy Iraq and destroy what they called
weapons of mass destruction. Their lie focused on this as an
initial cover for their big crime after the crime they had
perpetrated when they planted Zionism in the Arab homeland.
are they now saying and what is the truth? Now they - and
other voices in the world - are saying the same thing that we
told them before the aggression, namely that Iraq is free of
the weapons they claim it has.
will also be immune to their evil intentions to colonize it,
settle their armies in it, and dominate it, God willing. The
evil ones have placed themselves in the same dead end that the
almighty wanted to place them for some reason that Almighty
God can see but we cannot.
devil made them believe this [that they can occupy Iraq]. This
is why the liar of the United States and the liar of Britain
have been taking turns in playing roles and making tours of
the world to beg for money, forces, and support.
sides responded shyly to them out of fear or out of coveting
something. Thus, they sent a few hundred soldiers to Iraq or
donated a few hundred million dollars. They are chased by the
curse of God and the people. Some sides apologized for not
being able to offer anything. To the latter, we say that we
and our people appreciate their stands.
failing ones do not know or they might know that the land and
fire of great Iraq, which God has honoured by faith, jihad,
and valiant resistance, will devour hundreds of thousands of
soldiers without being able to achieve their plans or hopes.
is the confession coming anew from the servants of Zionism -
the liars of the black house [the White House]. The confession
admits the reality that the agents they brought, after their
tanks and armies entered the land of Iraq, as scabby dogs that
accompany or follow the caravan, do not have the minimum
weight or influence on the great, honest, and faithful Iraqi
people. Furthermore, not one of them can even walk on the
streets of Baghdad or any Iraqi city.
began to study their failure and their envoys toured Arab
countries in search of what they call advice on Iraq. We tell
them and the others: Iraq is part of its nation, and when the
circumstances are ripe, it plays a vanguard role or a vivid
part of the vanguards of this nation. Iraq is made up - if the
expression is right - of a special chemical structure that
cannot be understood by anyone other than its sons or the
competent faithful sons of its nation if they honestly consult
and co-operate with the honest and sincere Iraqis.
criminals, who harbour aggression and evil, should resort to
politics in order to correct the mistake, or even the heinous
great crime, so that the great sons of Iraq who managed its
affairs and led it to progress from a backward situation when
many Iraqis were barefoot - they led Iraq high to where God
wanted it to be in all walks of life and achieved great,
qualitative, broad, and comprehensive progress despite all
attempts by the evil ones through imposing wars and sieges
that accompanied the march in all circumstances and at all
times - the sincere sons of Iraq should return by the free
will of the people to manage the affairs of the country anew.
people have tested them for decades, and the people know them.
The people are well aware of their successes and failings. The
most important thing our people know about them is that they
love their people and work for their people's sake. Our people
also know that they are serious in everything they do or say
and that they do not work for themselves. The people know that
they are loyal and dedicated even if they commit mistakes.
of this should happen when the soldiers of aggression and
occupation are outside Iraq and when any illegitimate foreign
presence is no longer there in Iraq, as was the situation in
Iraq before. This is the solution, and there is no other
the tyrants find it difficult, let them try more months and a
longer period of time. They will only claim the lives of more
people, destroy and loot, but they will never gain anything
other than failure. Along with their failure, the lives of
more Americans and Britons and others will be claimed.
Thinking that the
Iraqis might be deluded if the foreigner replaces the names of
his old agents with new agents, even if some used to assume
ranking positions in our march - may God forbid - is a wrong
belief. This will not deceive the Iraqis. The Iraqis cannot be
deluded by this.
who are brought by the armies of the foreigner and are decided
by a non-free Iraqi will are like the foreigner. Therefore,
resisting them and the foreigner, and even before the
foreigner armies, is a religious, national and human duty.
is no other way for the invaders but to leave the country, the
land of Iraq, the homeland of Arabs and Muslims, cursed and
pressure on them, O mujahideen. By God, the road to jihad and
resistance is the best path for God, for man, and for history.
It is the only way to ensure the evacuation of the tyrannical
enemy forces from our country and restore full freedom and
full sovereignty for our people over their land and in their

Let the lowly be accursed.
