Footage filmed by Paris gunman Amedy Coulibaly during his killing spree inside the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket in January shows him asking a customer his nationality before shooting him dead after the victim replies that he is Jewish, the BBC reported on Thursday, citing a transcript of the video obtained by the French website Le Nouvel Observateur.

In the 7-minute clip, Coulibaly asks the hostage what his origin is and when the man replies “Jewish,” Coulibaly kills him instantly. The gunman also shouts “Nobody move” before grabbing another customer, asking his name and then shooting him dead.

“So you know why I am here then. Allahu Akbar,” he yells in the footage, according to Le Nouvel Observateur.

Coulibaly goes on an antisemitic rant in the video and screams “Stand up or I’ll kill you” at the hostages. He also makes further antisemitic remarks in response to one woman who tries telling him the hostages are innocent, according to a transcript of the clip.

Investigators are still examining the footage, which was filmed by Coulibaly on a GoPro camera worn during the attack, according to reports. He kills three of his four victims during the video.

Coulibaly reportedly had a long history of criminal activity and was linked to at least one of the Kouachi brothers, who were responsible for killing 12 people when they attacked the Charlie Hebdo magazine headquarters in Paris on Jan. 7.  Coulibaly pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist group in a separate video that emerged on Jan. 11. He was killed when police stormed the Hyper Cacher supermarket during his siege.

Police believe Coulibaly killed a policewoman in Paris the day before his attack on the kosher supermarket at Porte de Vincennes, the BBC reported.

    The video of victims should never be released. We should only be shown what happens to the despicable terrorist:

    Fast forward to 0:41

    • Amen, but then how can the media perpetuate its existence without preying upon our fears, and the hatred engendered by the loathsome acts depicted.

    That disproves Obama’s idiotic remark “random shooting”!

    • Henna du Plessis

      you are all telling fibs. If Obama, the muslim chief of USA, says it was random, then it is random. Same with IRAN AND THE BOMB. Vote for Bibi.

  • Florence

    Chosen randomly per Obama. Huh?

  • How can this be true?
    Our POTUS swears it was a random shooting and there were even Muslims in the store.

    • Why can’t I access the other 15 reply comments?

    • Henna du Plessis

      If Obama, the muslim chief of USA, says it was random, then it is random. Same with IRAN AND THE BOMB. Vote for Bibi.

  • Bullfrog Europe

    A tragic story, and certainly ‘not a random’ attack, as described by that prick in Washington. Obama’s role as President is questionable.

  • David

    Clearly Obama had been shared this intelligence, so how the hell did he have the audacity to lie to the world and assert that this was “random violence”?!

  • And to know that there are thousands of him within ISIS. Fumigation of this genetical breed must be done. There is no cure for that way of thinking but the death penalty. Their fanatism is so obstuse that there is no point of reason with them.

  • Sonia Willats

    Randomly Jewish!

  • Norms

    But Obama said that it was just a random bunch of folks killed in the kosher deli. Funny that wasn’t the view of the assassin. Who was right. Do you think, the assassin who checked that the shoppers he killed in a kosher, ie Jewish, food shop on a Fiday, ehenJews would be most likly o be doing their hopping for the Sabbath, or Obama, who so ehow fixed on the fact that three people killed in a car park were Muslims, nd declared thir killing, which may have been a car parking related issue .

  • Joel

    We need the USA to know just how disingenuous and dangerous Obama is when he said ” it was a random attatck by someone on some folk in a supermarket”
    i think he should be impeached.

  • renate rittmer

    Both the French and the English, as well as the German Governments have a big, it problem which will only increase through time. Let. Us hope that both the Canadian and American Governments take note and will not allow similar pro less develop, any more than they already exist.

  • Eric R.

    A murderous, raving, Jew-killing POS like that could have made it to the upper echelons of the EU bureaucracy had he lived.

  • mhloutsidebeltway

    More evidence to support Hussein Obama’s claim that the terrorist “randomly killed some folks in a deli.”

  • NCS

    This definitely rules out “random acts of violence.”

  • Mayer

    I wonder how our dear President will explain the randomness of him asking them their origin and then killing them, to “randomly” screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ and then finally in the most random of ways start an antisemitic rant.

    randomly flustered

  • Fred

    So Obama these murdered Jews were identified by this Muslim as Jews not as “random “. He took pride in his own identity as a Muslim extolling Islam and after every murder shouting Allah Akbar. Obama, Obama wake up from your stupor, these Islamist are your beloved brethren.
