How can the most wanted man in Iraq and high level Al-Qaeda operative find the time to write a statement and even quote the New York Times in it?
Abu-Musab Al-Zarqawi is the one-legged operative who is supposed to be on the run in Iraq, yet he finds the time to keep up to date with current

ever elusive Bin Laden. Since no new statements have been issued by Bin Laden, it is being suggested that Al-Zarqawi may now be the active leader of
Al-Qaeda. The rhetoric in the statement is expected, Al-Zarqawi speaks of lies, jihad and the religious rivalry between the Sunni and Shi'ites. The
most intriguing part of his statement happens to be the footnote which states:
"A notice : the subject is by the whole of its operations a ready for the display and expected our first publication soon very God Willing".

statement to the Islamic nation within the past hour, with the unconventional introduction “To my dear nation - the best nation ever sent to
Almost certainly this communiqué provides activation orders for further attacks in the Iraqi theatre of operations. Specific references to Israel and
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon indicate that it probably gives the "green light" for large scale attacks in Israel, and references to British
Prime Minister Tony Blair indicate that he may be a target as well.
Zarqawi may also have just issued the “go” signal for the planned economic attacks described last week in the Al Qaeda publication Al Battar published
on this web site.
