Brazen Lying Watch

Er, yeah, right.

P.S. Even in a document, that purports to tell the Shi'a they are al-Q's best buddies or such, the author can't refrain from using this tone:

"Oh heroic people of Iraq. The mujahideen are a people who love Allah and His Messenger and only do what pleases Allah, and they do not slay such life as Allah has made sacred, except for just cause."

"This includes the heretic Shia groups that do not insult the companions of Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and do not contravene the Koran and do not tamper with Allah's shari'ah..." [emphasis added]

Which Shi'a might occupy such category of the blessedly spared ("Muhammad's companions") per Zarqawi's worldview?

Not many, one suspects.
