"You are low infidels and scum. You Shiites are dogs. You are scum, to be trodden underfoot. From Moqtada Sadr to Hassan Nasrallah, all your leaders are dogs and scum. Do not think that the death of...

Assuming the document's accuracy, this shows...

    CAIRO - As US Marines mass outside the tough Sunni Triangle town of Fallujah, analysts believe the imminent high-profile attack in Iraq carries high political risks.
