أطلقوا سراح"أم سيف الله الأنصارية" نطلق لكم أسيركم
ـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــــTo the German Government:
Release ‘Umm Sayf Allah Al-Ansariya,’ We’ll Release Your Prisonerـــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ ـــــ

In the name of Allah the Most Merciful the Most Compassionate

Praise God that said: And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of tho se who, being weak, are illtreated. Men, women, and children, whose cry is "Our Lord! rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from Thee One who will protect; and raise for us from Thee one who will help", and prayer and peace upon our master Muhammad and upon his pure family and companions, and thereafter:

We heard about the tragedy that the oppressed Muslim sister ‘Umm Sayf Allah Al-Ansariya’ (Phyllis Loftis) is living in the prisons of the Crusader Germany, and we were saddened, just as every free Muslim was saddened, by the confirmed news that mentioned her facing a very bad treatment, such as forcing her to take off her Hijab and humiliating her dignity with insults and beating, and forbidding her from the basic rights. And these are numerous injustices the country that claims to respect human rights is practicing against a weakened woman whose only crime is that she supported the just affairs of her Muslim Ummah.

And we, from the base of supporting the weakened Muslims in earth’s east and west, and in seeking to defend the oppressed, inform the country of Germany the following:

One. We inform you that your citizen ‘Edgar Fritz Raupach’ is held captive by the Mujahideen of Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb.

Two. We demand that you release the sister ‘Umm Sayf Allah Al-Ansariya’ from prison and compensate her financially for the damages she faced due to your injustices, and award her the freedom whether to stay [in Germany] or receive political asylum in a country that protects her rights and dignity. And in exchange for that we will release your citizen.

Three. We warn you that the correct course of the negotiations file over this prisoner requires speed from you and not avoid preservation of his life. Also on this occasion, you should learn from the recent lesson taught to Britain by the Mujahideen…as the disingenuous act of her government and the wrong course of the negotiations file caused the death of the British and Italian captives.

Four. We have attached along with this statement a video-recorded outcry by your prisoner in which he demands you to preserve his life.

And in the end, we call upon the family and friends of the hostage, and the German public opinion, to mobilize quickly and pressure the German government to force it to end the suffering of the oppressed Muslim sister, whose release would be the only guarantee to preserve the life of your prisoner and his free return to you.
