This post is an update to this story.
As Nigeria’s Boko Haram indiscriminately slaughters innocent people and destroys Christian churches, it warns authorities not to attempt to rescue the family of seven French hostages (four children) that the group kidnapped in nearby Cameroon last month. Boko Haram’s reason for kidnapping an innocent family?
Well, the group’s murderous brethren have been arrested.
Via Global Post:
A Nigerian Islamist group warned against the use of force to free a French man and six members of his family kidnapped in Cameroon in a video aired on Thursday.
Tanguy Moulin-Fournier was kidnapped on February 19 along with his wife, four children aged between five and 12, and brother while vacationing in northern Cameroon.
“We are proud to say that we are holding the seven French hostages,” said a Boko Haram member in the video aired by France’s i-Tele channel with French sub-titles.
Check out the complete lack of rationality on the part of the kidnappers, one of whom said the following on the video:
“We are holding them because Nigerian and Cameroonian authorities have arrested our members and are brutalising them and we do not know the conditions under which they are detained,” the man said.
“We affirm that we will not free these French hostages while our members are being held in Nigeria and Cameroon,” he said. “Force will not work in freeing them, we are ready to defend ourselves…”
In the crazed minds of these kidnappers, they should be allowed to murder as many non-Muslims as they possibly can while expecting their victims and those who would help them, to willingly accept it.
