      > cease-fire "inspired by Satan."
      > A communiqu� issued in the name of "The Iraqi Resistance in al-
      > Fallujah" was distributed on Friday in front of the Mosque of Ibn
      > Taymiyah after noontime congregational prayers. The communiqu�
      > strongly denounced the Islamic Party of Iraq led by member of the
      > puppet so-called interim governing council Muhsin `Abd al-Hamid, for
      > the role it played in announcing the cease fire agreement in al-
      > Fallujah, which the communiqu� called "a cease-fire agreement derived
      > from Satanic inspiration."
      > According to al-Jazeera TV, the Resistance communiqu� said, "the so-
      > called Islamic Party used this idea of a cease-fire, which it derived
      > from the inspiration of Satan, to sow confusion in the ranks of the
      > Mujahideen. It gave the enemy an opportunity to get its breath back
      > and reactivate itself, after having been in the grasp of the
      > Mujahideen. It has been able to build barricades to protect itself
      > [thanks to the cease-fire]."
      > The communiqu� went on to say that, "the balance in al-Fallujah
      > tilted in favor of the enemy, after it had been leaning in our
      > favor." The document asked: "doesn't this party know that the
      > infidels recognize no agreements or charters?"
      > The communiqu� confirmed that the Resistance had inflicted grave
      > losses on the occupation and that "the American enemy lied when it
      > reported its losses, as it is its usual habit to lie."
      > US preparing for "decisive" battle at al-Fallujah.
      > The US military commanders preparing US Marine invaders for an

      > defenders. The US commanders say that the battle will be decisive
      > for the future of Iraq. US Colonel John Colman spoke to al-Jazeera
      > TV and said that he expects all of al-Fallujah � Islamists, Arab
      > volunteers, local volunteers � to forcibly resist their aggression.
      > Al-Fallujah: aggressors prevent refugees from returning home.
      > US occupation troops continue to violate their cease fire agreement
      > in al-Fallujah as they continued preventing families who had left the
