Statement Claiming Responsibility for the Assassination Attempt on the French Agent Muhammad Ould Abdel Aziz
All praise be to the One who said:
( فَقَاتِلُوا أَئِمَّةَ الْكُفْرِ إِنَّهُمْ لا أَيْمَانَ لَهُمْ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَنْتَهُونَ)
“And fight the leaders of Kufr,a indeed they have no convenants, in order that that may cease.”
May peace and blessings be upon Al Dhahook Al Qattal (Muhammad), who has said:
(بعثت بالسيف حتى يعبد الله وحده لا شريك له)
“I have been raised with the sword so that Allah is worshiped alone without any partner.”
…and upon his family, companions, and all others who follow his way until the Day of Recompense. To proceed:
In a bold and heroic operation which sought to assassinate the French agent in the Land of Shinqeet (Mauritania), a group of courageous martyrdom-seekers, on Tuesday the 1st, February 2011, were able to cross a number of military checkpoints with which this Taghoot surrounded his throne, until they reached Nouakchott and came in close proximity to its target. It would have reached it, were it not confronted by the Presidential Guard which sought to protect its master. The martyrdom-seekers dove into their ranks and detonated their vehicle in their midst, which held 1.5 tons of explosive material. By Allah’s Grace, a number of them were afflicted.
This first attempt was a response to the open war which this agent has launched against the Mujahideen en lieu of France and in protection of their interests. Even if he saved his skin this time, we give him the good news that the Mujahideen will launch more attacks time after time, by Allah’s leave, as long as he ceases to stop allying with the crusaders and defending them, and end his alliance with them in the war against Jihad.
We call upon the noble of the Mauritanian army to overthrow Ould Abdel Aziz, who seeks to force them into a war which is not their own. The goal of the Mujahideen is clear, all praise be to Allah, which is to stop the the Crusaders in defense of our Ummah. Whoever chooses to side with them and prevents us from targeting them should blame none other than themselves.
We say to our brother Muslims in Mauritania:
Indeed the agent of France, Ould Abdel Aziz, lies to you when he tries to portray the war he is waging en lieu of France against the Mujahideen as self-defense. All the strikes of the Mujahideen were responses to military operations carried out by the Mauritanian regime against us to please its masters. This proves that these tyrannical Tawagheet base their legitimacy from Crusader support, and that they have no concern whatsoever for the interests of the people. This requires that he Muslim people revolt against them and overthrow them with all legislated means, to defend themselves from their harm, and to repel their corruption and spread of corruption, which ruins both their religion and worldly life.
