They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

The 'Global Islamic Media Front' said it's PR department would follow up the applications and communicate with candidates through private email messages.

Al Qaeda did not indicate the different ranks of the vacant positions. Instead, it said, "Every Muslim should know that his life is not his own; it is the property of this violated nation for whom men have shed their blood. No other issue should take precedence over work for the Umma (Community of the faithful within Islam); it is an obligation for every Muslim."

According to the message posted by the Front, each applicant should turn to God for guidance and pray before submitting his applications. Link
