Somehow the OIC never manages to exhibit the same outrage over the terrorist actions of the Boko Haram, no matter what they do.
France condemns Boko Haram kidnap video as ‘cruelty without bounds’
France has condemned the release of a video of seven French citizens, including four children, who disappeared in northern Cameroon last week, which claimed they were kidnapped by members of Boko Haram, the militant Islamist group from Nigeria.

Jean-Marc Ayrault, French Prime Minister, said the kidnappers “display a cruelty without bounds”.
“For all of us, these images are terribly shocking. The video tape … is being studied by our (intelligence) services, who are examining precisely the nature of these claims,” he said.
The three-minute video, posted to YouTube and mentioned on a jihadist website, shows one of two French men reading a statement, with a woman in between them. Four children sit on the ground near them, flanked by two masked militants wearing camouflage uniforms and holding rifles.
“We have been taken by Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad,” one of the male hostages said in the video, referring to the name in Arabic of Nigeria’s Boko Haram militants. “They want the liberation of their brothers in Cameroon and their women imprisoned in Nigeria.”
The hostages were later identified as Tanguy Moulin-Fournier and his wife Albane, as well as their four sons, Eloi, Andeol, Mael and Clarence.
