This document is a letter signed by the Qa`idat Al-Jihad Organization (commonly referred to as al-Qa`ida) that warns officials in the United Arab Emirates, “especially [in] Abu Dhabi and Dubai”, that they risk retribution if they keep arresting and detaining mujahidin sympathizers.

Although al-Qa`ida does not want to attack the Emirates, the tourist industry in the Emirates is described as shameless and the area is considered an easy target.
