A major insurgent group in Iraq praised Al-Jazeera television in an audio message posted on the Internet on Sunday, saying the Arab satellite station served the fight against the Americans. The speaker was not identified on tape, but a statement alongside it said it was the head of the Islamic Army in Iraq, and that the recording was issued to mark the start of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month. The identity of the Sunni group's leader is unknown. Most media played an "ugly and criminal role against the holy warriors," the voice said. "But some media, though few and under pressure, were neutral and their important role was positive in our fight against the enemies. This includes Al-Jazeera."
