I will speak only for 10 minutes I have the right to speak My country is under threat. My country is in danger You, drop your camera, I outraged and they shall get a piece of my mind Drop your camera, I am furious and I will give you a piece of my mind The MP's [heading out] are here and should come back to listen to what I have to say Come on in! Here they are Why are you running out? sit down and defend your guy! [General Aziz] We, the opposition, are here We are past the two-thirds by four We are past one-third by 4, you cannot filibuster. We are here Those who are not here can be phoned to come in You have been speaking out one by one, why? In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace, and Prayers Upon His Honorable Prophet Almighty God says in the holy Qur'an O MANKIND! Be conscious of your Sustainer, who has created you out of one living entity And out of it created its mate, and out of the two spread abroad a multitude of men and women And remain conscious of God, in whose name you demand [your rights] from one another, and of these ties of kinship. Verily, God is ever watchful over you! I sent Aziz 3 letters with 3 ministers With the Minister of Fisheries, The Minister of Women's Affairs and The Minister of Higher Education I told him that Mauritania is one weak family that cannot be reformed with violence that will break it Those businessmen who were jailed, and I am not defending anyone who broke the law there are other businessmen who are more corrupt than them and who are free because they're Aziz loyalists WHY? Their fortune is very recent, I still remember it, even my little son remembers the time where they were penniless With all due respect, dear Mauritanians, I said my little boy, I didn't want to. I knew them in a time where they didn't own anything Where did their fortunes come from? If it was built from trafficking in narcotics that's a dishonor If it was amassed from selling tobacco, cigarettes killed and destroyed us Those men who built Mauritania And did so from the days of the French occupation When there wasn't even a Mauritania When Moctar Ould Daddah [Mauritania's founder] was still under a tent, and the presidential offices were right there Right there! and the first houses in Nouakchott that we demolished, the first reminders of the birth of our nation were demolished by Aziz and he turned it to a waste land So, we ask Aziz loyalists to cool it off You should know that Aziz has no MP's He has no MP's!! And those two who just spoke, with all due respect The one who came instead of the Interior Minister He is clueless!! And the Gentleman who attacked [former Minister] Ould Lakhal and [deposed President] Ould Cheikh Abdallahi They were ministers who were investigated by a President They were put on trial, they were found not guilty, end of story The other Gentelman you didn't even mention [ex Minister] Ould Ahmed Youra He is said to having sold Mauritania's share in the Senegal river Were it to turn to be true, he should have been shot for this! But at the time [Yora's arrest] it became a tribal affair. Oulad Bisba [Aziz' tribe] did a stand up job They wanted their son released, took to the streets and pressure was put to that effect [Former President] Taya is innocent he is innocent but was surrounded by corrupt people Now, send for Taya to come back! Because he was toppled by an illegal coup before he finished his term in office Then put Taya in jail, Aziz should leave office [Deposed President] Ould Cheikh Abdallahi too should leave This is not because I like Taya, I don't like Taya I publicly criticized him in all districts and said that his party was a corrupt party It was proven to be corrupt, because if it wasn't so, they should have gone out in the street protesting the toppling of their president Until their president finishes his legal term in office, he still had a few years left in office I, Nomma Bint Mogaya, say saw and fear no consequence Now, Aziz should behave himself and leave us in peace, leave himself in peace, and to all Muslims I want good for all But bring back Taya, put him in jail You can't jail Taya. He is President of the Republic and you toppled him through an illegal coup The coup was led by his son who was in his palace [Aziz' former job was head of the Presidential Guard] Taya raised Aziz only to be eaten by him You heard me? Bring back Taya, let him finish his term and organize free and fair elections A Mauritanian will win then we can talk [reference to Aziz' Moroccan origins] I will not allow Mauritania's destruction. It is my country, your country I am the daughter of Kaedi so that there will be no racism in Mauritania [Black-African majority area] Daughter of Selibaby, daughter of Guidimaka [Black-African areas] Daughter of Basknou, daughter of Néma, daughter of Aïoune Daughter of Kifa, daughter of Aleg Daughter of Nouakchott, daughter of Nouadhibou, daughter of Tiris Zemmour Daughter of Atar, you heard me? I will not Mauritania's destruction! If someone tries to do so, he will have to deal with me I, this weak woman, by God almighty, he shall hear from me! Why all this strife? Business people aren't courageous Our businessmen are not courageous Capital is cowardly They could have been called discretely and asked to pay Pay today, pay tomorrow, sell your homes and pay But the truth is that there isn't any evidence against them If they are to be put on trial, it isn't you! These events didn't happen during your time Call the man in whose time was done [Taya] Mr Minister, I welcome you, and those sent with you from the Central Bank to help you They don't have anything to help you with Because THEY are the one's who instigated this case to begin with [Proverb] For the lamb knows the wolf is eating her, and the wolf knows how delicious the lamb is Don't interfere between business people and the state, neither can live without the other Mohamed Ould Abdelaziz, Mr President You call yourself the president of the poor and are jailing the rich Who is going to give the poor charity to the poor, who will give them zakat, who will employ their children? By God Almighty, you are NOT the president of the poor! YOU ARE THE PRESIDENT OF THE DESTROYERS! I say so, and I fear not..If it's prison, then send me there You said in your campaign that you will build jails and fill them with people You should know that today everyone wants to go to jail! We prefer to go to jail, at least, we will be fed Human Rights [organizations] will come to us We will be fed and dressed, better than remaining in the streets and our people treated like this! [addressing General's cousin] Back in the day, you Ould Abdelaziz, no democracy, there were no political parties I am not talking about the Senegal river case time of the Abdallahi and Lakhal case [1987] there was There were no political parties There was no democratic process, the first step was in 1986 with the mayoral elections and then political parties were allowed in 1991 Those parties here are the real parties for they remained steadfast in good and bad times [opposing the coup] We were beaten, teargas was thrown on us, and mistreated in every possible way Our women were stripped of their clothes and our MP's arms were broken [by the police] Even the speaker of parliament had teargas bombs thrown on him Those are the true elected representatives [the opposition] unlike pro-Aziz MP's, with all due respect, those are not real MP's, I love you, and pray that you will overcome your dishonor and join me and join me Those are not MP's Change your ways Almighty God divided believers to 3 groups, believers..I mean mankind divided mankind in 3 groups: believers, unbelievers and hypocrites And the most dangerous are the hypocrites for they were mentioned in 13 Qur'anic verses, the others share of verses you already know I am not going to recite you those verses... No, by God I will recite those verses In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace "THIS DIVINE WRIT - let there be no doubt about it is [meant to be] a guidance for all the God-conscious Who believe in [the existence of] that which is beyond the reach of human perception, and are constant in prayer and spend on others out of what We provide for them as sustenance And who believe in that which has been bestowed from on high upon thee,s well as in that which was bestowed before thy time: for it is they who in their innermost are certain of the life to come! It is they who follow the guidance [which comes from their Sustainer" [sarcastically] I hope we and you shall be amongst them See.. that was my gift to you, a prayer free of charge "BEHOLD, as for those who are bent on denying the truth - it is all one to them whether thou warnest them or dost not warn them: they will not believe God; has sealed their hearts and their hearing, and over their eyes is a veil; and awesome suffering awaits them And there are people who say, "We do believe in God and the Last Day," the while they do not [really] believe They would deceive God and those who have attained to faith-the while they deceive none but themselves, and perceive it not. In their hearts is disease Sir, continue the verses, I am forgeting my Qur'an because I am busy with politics ..and so God lets their disease increase..[voices in the background]..and grievous suffering awaits them because of their persistent lying Until the verse's end: ..Deaf, dumb, blind - and they cannot turn back.
