"God has blessed a group of vanguard Muslims, the forefront of Islam, to destroy America."
From videotaped statement broadcast
by Al Jazeera,

"We issue the following fatwa to all Muslims: The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies -- civilians and military -- is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it....We -- with God's help -- call on every Muslim who believes in God and wishes to be rewarded to comply with God's order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it."
