Horrible: The French Family Held Hostage By Boko Haram

boko_haram_logo

This story is absolutely heartbreaking.

A French family has been taken hostage by the Jihadist terrorist group Boko Haram.

Being held by Jihadists would be bad enough, but to see your own children held and no doubt terrified would be unbearable. This is yet another stark illustration that the Jihadist enemies we face are in fact subhuman. And they must be stopped. The world must be rid of this scourge, no matter how long it takes, or else there will never be even a glimmer of hope for peace.

Four children are among the family taken hostage in the African nation of Cameroon, but multiple news sources are speculating that the hostages have already been moved into Nigeria.

Some news reports claim that Al Qaeda is responsible and there is no doubt that there is some level of communication, if not outright cooperation, between Boko Haram and Al Qaeda, but they are two separate terrorist organizations.

The family were taken on Tuesday by gunmen on motorbikes. Following the abduction, the French government said it believes the couple, their children aged five, eight, 10 and 12, and an uncle were taken across the border into Nigeria.

The family lives in the Cameroonian capital, Yaounde, where the father worked for the French gas group Suez. 

They had been returning from a visit to Waza National Park when they were kidnapped.

Islamic jihad and dawah operations continue to spread throughout the African continent, which is clearly the central theater in the global Jihadist insurgency at this point. There are active operations across the dark continent.

Probably the bloodiest Jihadist organization in Africa is Boko Haram, who have made a practice of slaughtering Christian worshippers in Nigeria on Christian holy days, such as Christmas and Easter.

We can only pray for the poor family in the video below. Pray for their safe return to freedom and hope that justice will come down on their captors swiftly and decisively.

    My heart bleeds for the French family above. I wonder if any information in the books below can help at all either in this case or others.
