Paris: French police have found a seven-minute video in which the Paris jihadi terrorist Amedi Coulibaly says, "What we have done is completely legitimate, given what they have done. If you attack the caliphate, we will attack you."
In the background was the flag of Islamic State, Baghdadi's terror outfit that has occupied large swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq.
In the video, Coulibaly posing in a camouflage bullet proof vest, confirms his links to the brothers, Cherif and Said Kouachi, killers of the French satirical magizine Charlie Hebdo's editor and cartoonists.
"The brothers of our team, they did Charlie Hebdo. I also went out a bit against the police so that it has more impact.... We managed to synchronise to come out at the same time so we don't cause each other any problems as we are sought of over the same affair."
Speaking about the Kouachi brothers, Coulibaly says on the video: "I helped him in his project by giving him a few thousand euros so he could finish off what he had bought.
Coulibaly then explains why he and Hayat targeted the Jewish kosher supermarket, and a caption says :Why did you attack France, Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish grocery store?"
Coulibaly appears wearing a black jacket and hat, back against a wall, an AK rifle propped up beside him, and says: "What we are in the process of doing is completely legitimate.
"Moreover, it has been deserved for sometime. If you attack the caliphate, if you attack the Islamic State, we will attack you.
"You and your coalition...you bombarded regularly over there... You are killing civilians, fighters. Why? Because we live by Sharia law?
"It is you who decides what happens on earth? Is it? No. We can't let that happen. We are going to fight. God willing."
At the end of the video clip, Coulibaly now wears a while Islamic jalabiye dress sitting under a printed Islamic State flag and an AK rifle.
He says in French: "What are you doing when our Prophet is so seriously insulted?...What are you doing when our sisters are being raped, when entire populations are being massacred?
"..I've been to many mosques in Paris which are full of vigorous men who can defend Islam.
"Why is it, when we have millions of young men, we can't defend the Prophet?"
In the video, the audio of a French TV news can be heard in the background about police in search of the Kouachi brothers, soon after the Charlie Hebdo carnage.
In the beginning of the video, Coulibaly is shown doing press ups, behind a caption on which a verse from Quram is inscribed: "and prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know (but) whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you and you will not be wronged."
In the background is the audio of a French radio report detailing the end of the siege of Hyper Cacher kosher grocery storey, in which Coulibaly was killed.
The "martyrdom tape" was posted by a militant group on Twitter on Sunday morning, and it is not clear who filmed and edited it.
