Jérémie Louis-Sidney, 33, the presumed leader of an Islamist terror unit, was shot dead by anti-terror police in a flat in Strasbourg on Saturday.
The rap video, recorded in May 2009 and played on several French news programmes last night, shows Louis-Sidney singing: “9/11 is only the tip of the iceberg... Know that you are being manipulated, if you don’t understand, read up, prepare yourself, arm yourself with knowledge.”
At the end of the original video, which lasts three minutes, he says “Allah Akbar”, God is the greatest in arabic.
Dressed in a hooded coat and a kaffiyeh scarf, Louis-Sidney also raps about “kid trafficking” and “organ trafficking”, as well as the number 666 being written on the bar codes of cathodic ray tubes.
Louis-Sidney’s was tracked by anti-terror police after traces of his DNA were found on the pull ring of a grenade thrown into a kosher shop on September 19 in Sarcelles.
During a raid on a flat he was staying on on Saturday, he reportedly pulled out a 9mm Magnum 357. Police shot him dead.
His mother and sister, who claim their son and brother was not an radical Islamist and would not have killed himself for the faith, are expected to press charges.
