Baghdad, 4 Dec. (AKI) - The leader of the Islamic State in Iraq, the al-Qaeda linked group forced on the defensive by its tribal allies, has called for a renewed bombing campaign against Iraqi security forces.
In a new 42-minute audio message released on Islamist websites on Tuesday, Abu Omar al-Baghdadi asked his men to carry out attacks against members of the Iraqi police and army till the end of January.
"Every soldier in our group must carry and explode at least three bombs by that date," said al-Baghdadi in the tape.
"These bombs should hit the unbelievers who wear uniforms and all those who fight alongside the occupiers," he said.
Al-Baghdadi also insulted members of the Sunni tribal militias who attacked his men.
Angered by months of deadly attacks against Iraqis who fail to follow their hardline interpretations of Islam, some Sunni tribes have turned against the al-Qaeda militants they once backed.

I thought this guy turned out to be fake, ala Big Brother.
Abu Omar al-Baghdadi’s real name is Harry Reid.
Are they doing the “surge” thing?
It will be a little tough for the suicide bombers in the group to get to bombs #2 and #3.
Not really. You’ve heard about the Kamikaze pilot in WWII who had 20 missions? ;^)
After all, "They threatened us!"
Okay if you count the ones still alive, that's up to nine whole bombs. We'd better be ready.
Wasn't the dish Chicken Chow Mein named in his honor? :=)
LOL! Pretty good except chow mein is puportedly a chinese dish!
Security campaign? LOLZ!
Al Qaida can’t provide a real man due to lack of human resource, full of cowards to have one, and since it is likely such new leader will be gone in months after captured or killed.
I guess Bahgdadi got his marching orders from the Democrats./.. Harry Reid must have called and told him to step up the violence or they would be forced to capitulate to Bush here in America..
What you think thats wrong?
Remember Ted Kennedy and the KGB against Reagan... Some Democrats in Congress have sold us out to our enemies for their own political gain.
Abu Omar al-Baghdadi is a fake — really.
Could it be there is a real al-Baghdadi under a burqa somewhere
or wearing a bridal gown?
I don’t know.
Time will tell.
check his name on globalsecurity.org
Abu Omar al-Baghdadi is a fake really.
