Because we defend ourselves… And by the will of the exalted we will reach them before they reach us.”“Al-Malahim Media presents a new video message from al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula’s Qasim al-Raymi: ‘Comment on the Targeting of the Defense Ministry in Sanaa,’” Jihadology, December 21, 2013, http://jihadology.net/2013/12/21/al-mala%E1%B8%A5im-media-presents-a-new-video-message-from-al-qaidah-in-the-arabian-peninsulas-qasim-al-raymi-comment-on-the-targeting-of-the-defense-ministry-in-%E1%B9%A3anaa/.
