Special thanks to Vlad for getting the French translated, and the good text he supplied with it in the body of the post, that I snatch in full and republish here. Folks, those of you interested in visiting Muslim lands and/or lands with a noticeable presence of Muslims in the 3rd world, think again.
NOTE: Here in Finland the government has its own hostage crisis in Yemen to worry about as well.
French family kidnapped by Boko Haram, forced to make ransom video
Thanks to Oz-Rita for the translation from French to English. I left the Arabic parts in as those of us who read these kinds of websites probably know enough Arabic by now that we can recognize enough words to get some sense of what threats are being made. I found it interesting that they mention Goodluck Jonathan by name, the president of Nigeria, and there seems to be references to implementing sharia.
The reason I felt this was worth posting is because I think its is extremely important that Western nations as well as Western people take a new attitude towards going to Islamic areas or areas under heavy threat by jihadis.
1. People should not go there. If they do, they should go with the attitude that if they are kidnapped they should expect to die in their custody and probably be tortured in the process.
2. And much more importantly. governments simply must stop funding jihad by paying ransoms for naive morons who go to these places to ‘help’ or for whatever reasons. Thomas Jefferson himself started the Marines because the costs of paying ransoms to Muslim kidnappers was beyond sustainable, not to mention morally repugnant and it was just being used to fuel more jihad against us. We seem to be right back in that exact situation with France, England, Canada and the US paying these bastards to attack us again.
This has to stop.
