“The enmity of France towards the religion of Islam is old, since this state appeared as a global power, and it set out crusader colonial campaigns it didn’t stop its aggression against the Muslims rather it continued to this day, although in recent times it began to take the forms dominated by the character of malice and guile and cunning, and exhuming the infrastructure of the Islamic civilization and identity intending to ruining and blur its features, without rushing to the use of military force, and this crusade is only another proof for the deep-rootedness of this enmity in the hearts of the French politicians, the old and current, liberals and socialists, moderates and extremists, they are all alike.”“The English Translation of the audio speech for sheikh Abu Ubayda Yousif Al-Annabi Entitled War on Mali,” azelinfiles.wordpress.com, May 2013, http://azelin.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/shaykh-abc5ab-ubaydah-yc5absuf-al-anc481bc4ab-22the-war-on-mali22-en.pdf.

“O’ people of Islam all over the world: before this new crusade of France and its occupation for one of the Muslims lands we can only call all of you to a comprehensive and general mobilization, and ask you to support your brothers with all the kinds of support that you capable of, and we remind you that jihad after this aggression became an individual obligation on every capable person from you… O’ all Muslims it is an obligation on you to repel this assault by targeting the French interests everywhere because since the first day of this aggression since these interests have become legitimate targets for you.”“The English Translation of the audio speech for sheikh Abu Ubayda Yousif Al-Annabi Entitled War on Mali,” Fursan Al-Balagh Media Translation Department, May 2013, http://azelin.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/shaykh-abc5ab-ubaydah-yc5absuf-al-anc481bc4ab-22the-war-on-mali22-en.pdf.

Abu Ubayda Yousif al-Annabi, May 2013

“And Muslim you should know that a nation that is indulged in the swamp of immoralities and vices that it reached to this level of debauchery, shamelessness, misguidance and ignorance isn’t worthy of causing any eeriness in your souls no matter how much its air force was superior, and France should know that what will resolve this religious war won’t be the air force rather it will be the weapon of Aqeeda and Iman Allah willing.”“The English Translation of the audio speech for sheikh Abu Ubayda Yousif Al-Annabi Entitled War on Mali,” azelinfiles.wordpress.com, May 2013, http://azelin.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/shaykh-abc5ab-ubaydah-yc5absuf-al-anc481bc4ab-22the-war-on-mali22-en.pdf.

Abu Ubayda Yousif al-Annabi, May 2013

“As for the Islamic Sharia which because of it France invaded us Insha’Allah it will return to prevail on the land of Mali because the feeling of our people there of belonging to Islam is rooted in its conscience that cannot be destabilized by a force or army, especially when this army consists of homosexuals like the French army…”“The English Translation of the audio speech for sheikh Abu Ubayda Yousif Al-Annabi Entitled War on Mali,” azelinfiles.wordpress.com, May 2013, http://azelin.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/shaykh-abc5ab-ubaydah-yc5absuf-al-anc481bc4ab-22the-war-on-mali22-en.pdf.
