Al Qaeda: “We Will Murder French & Italian Hostages if You Don’t Release our Brothers”
Good news: al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (Northwest Africa) did not kill Italian Sergio Cicala and Pierre Camatte, from France as they had promised.
Bad news: they’re giving Italy and FranceÂ 25 more days to exert pressure on the government of Mali to release members of AQIM. After that the two hostages will be murdered.

France and Italy have a long tradition of caving in to the demands of terrorists over hostages. While this may save the lives of today’s hostages, it also leads to more hostage taking. Such a strategy leads to more hostage taking and deaths.

Unfortunately for Muslims, the taking of slaves and hostages in battle was a practice endorsed by Muhammad. The practice is clearly evil. Either Muhammad wasn’t a prophet, or his example (sunnah) in many cases should not be followed.

“As for the captives, the amir [ruler] has the choice of taking the most beneficial action of four possibilities: the first to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favor to them and pardon them. Allah, may he be exalted, says, ‘When you encounter those [infidels] who deny [the Truth=Islam] then strike [their] necks’ (Qur’an sura 47, verse 4)” — Al-Mawardi,Â al-Ahkam as-Sultaniyyah, (The Laws of Islamic Governance).
