Kavkaz Center has received an e-mail signed by Information Council of Kabardino-Balkarian Islamic Jammat (War Council) 'Yarmuk'. The message says that the Mujahideen (Resistance Fighters) of Kabardino-Balkaria have formed Yarmuk military council, which is starting to carry out its assigned combat missions in accordance with the requirements of Jihad, -- against the invaders and the local puppet regime. The text of this statement is published uncut and unabridged.
In the name of God, Most Merciful, Most Gracious!
Praise Allah, the Lord of the worlds!
Peace and blessings be to Prophet Muhammad, to his family, his disciples and to all of those who followed him until the Day of Judgment! And then:
We are notifying everyone that by mercy of Allah the Military Council of Kabardino-Balkaria Yarmuk has been formed today. Units of Yarmuk have been deployed all across the territory of Kabardino-Balkaria and are now starting to carry out the assigned combat missions in accordance with the requirements of Jihad.
We are announcing that Fighters of Yarmuk were taking part in the latest combat operation in Chegem District of the Republic.
Information Center of Islamic Jamaat 'Yarmuk' is also authorized to make a special statement concerning the vile slander coming from Russian media against our Mujahideen – Rashid Khulamkhanov and Murat Zhabelov, who, Insha Allah (God Willing), became Shaheeds (Martyrs) in the battles in Chegem District.
Local and Russian authorities have spread the report that passports of four residents of Stavropol Territory (Southern Russia), who were killed in July 2004 in Cherek District of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, have allegedly been found on the dead Fighters.
We are stating that these are filthy lies and this is a fraud committed by FSB (Russian Federal Security Service, former KGB) and by [pro-Russian] prosecutor’s office of Kabardino-Balkaria.
This cheap KGB trick is supposed to smear the Fighters in the eyes of the local population and close the case of these unsolved crimes. In the Republic everybody knows full well that on that evening this poor family had an argument with a drunken company near the Blue Lakes of Cherek District.
We are Mujahideen! We are Warriors of Allah!
We are not fighting against peaceful civilians, especially against peaceful guests.
We are not fighting against women or children, like Russian invaders are doing in Ichkeria.
We are not blowing up sleeping people, like FSB of the Russian Federation does.
We are stating that any terrorist acts that can happen in the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria against peaceful civilians is the job of the Russian FSB and Kabardino-Balkarian pro-Russian police.
We are fighting against tyrants and bloodsuckers, who put the interests of their mafia clans above the interests of their nations. We are fighting against those who get fat at the expense of impoverished and intimidated people of Kabardino-Balkaria, whom they brought down to their knees. We are fighting against the invaders and aggressors, who seized the Muslims land and are running the show and who are playing the master.
People of Kabardino-Balkaria!
These mere apologies for rulers, who sold themselves to the invaders, have made drug addiction, prostitution, poverty, crime, depravity, drunkenness and unemployment prosper in our Republic. It is their corrupt policies that undressed our daughters and our sisters and brought them to lechery and permissiveness.
They, along with their Kremlin’s masters, are the ones provoking interethnic strife in Kabardino-Balkaria by their criminal and unjust rule.
On their orders Muslims of Kabardino-Balkaria get kidnapped and tortured. On their orders our mosques are getting closed down. And on their orders the ban is put on spreading of the religion of Islam, the religion of Truth and Justice. Probably for the first time in 1,400 years of Islam, a mosque has been built which is not called a mosque, but some «building of clerical administration of Muslims of Kabardino-Balkaria». It means that ordinary Muslims of Kabardino-Balkaria are not allowed in the mosque without having a special permission!
With their consent over 200 thousand Muslims of Ichkeria have been killed and 50 thousand children became orphans. On the Day of Judgment you too will be asked about this genocide.
We don’t need a proof of who is fighting against peaceful civilians, who is kidnapping, who is torturing or killing, and then selling the dead bodies to the relatives. Everybody knows that this is the job of Russian FSB, police (Ministry of the Interior), GRU (Russian military intelligence), RUBOP (Russian organized crime unit), OMON (special police force), etc.
These are the unmen that we are fighting against, and Insha Allah (God Willing), we will be fighting until final victory.
If we happen to die, others will come. Muslims of the Caucasus are awakening.
And finally, we praise Allah, the Lord of the worlds. We ask Him for help and we beseech to Him for forgiveness.
Allah Akbar!!! (God is Great!!!)
