Al-Qaeda has published the first edition of the magazine of the al-Qaeda Organisation of Holy War in Iraq. The publication includes an introductory statement from Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Osama bin Laden's deputy in Iraq.
The magazine identifies the group's goals as being to establish Islamic law in Iraq and to drive the infidels from Iraq and other occupied Muslim countries. Democracy is condemned as an infidel practice that allows the rule of man instead of God.
The magazine states that "Ignoring jihad (holy war) is one of the great sins." It calls on Iraqi forces including the police and army to "repent" and stop serving the "cross", threatening to kill those that don't. Source
