Now Somalian kidnappers try to ransom disabled Frenchwoman’s dead body

How would one define barbarism? The utter and total loss of ones civilized humanity? I think the headline above says it all. Mohamed was a pirate. His cult was about growing and sustaining barbarity and piracy as a way of life with moral justification for it, as the people of his day typically did have a sense of decency and cooperation which he needed to remove. Now, once again, we see the fruits of that teaching. We had better screw our courage to the sticking place if we want to maintain any of the values that thousands of years of development and self sacrifice for a cooperative culture have given us.

Kidnappers who killed a wheelchair-bound French woman by failing to give her medicine now want to sell her body back to her family, it emerged today.

The grotesque demand was received by government officials in Paris following 66-year-old Marie Dedieu’s tragic death in Somalia.

Her beachfront home on Manda Island, in Kenya, had been invaded by around 10 armed men who dragged her away on October 1.

Ms Dedieu, who had been knocked over by a car in the 1970s and later suffered from cancer, was meant to take pain-killing drugs every four hours, but the Somalian kidnappers had not allowed it.

And today France’s Defence Minister Gerard Longuet said: ‘To add the worst kind of insult to this horrendous act, they are trying to sell Marie Dedieu’s body back to her loved ones.

‘To abduct a woman of this age, who was disabled, then deny her medicine, let her die, and then make this demand is utterly horrendous. They are to despised.’

Ms Dedieu's Kenyan boyfriend John Lepapa, 39, said the gang marched the staff off at gunpoint, then one man lifted the 66-year-old on to his shoulders and carried her to a motorboatMs Dedieu’s Kenyan boyfriend John Lepapa, 39, said the gang marched the staff off at gunpoint, then one man lifted the 66-year-old on to his shoulders and carried her to a motorboat

 

  

 

He said that agents from the DGSE, France’s elite overseas intelligence service, had been working in Africa and passed on the demand.

Ms Dedieu’s boyfriend, John Lepapa, 39, said after the kidnap: ‘My girlfriend pleaded with them and told them to take whatever they wanted from the house, including the money and to spare her life, but they would not listen.’

Ms Dedieu was one of the founders of France’s Women’s Liberation Movement (MLF) in the 1960s, and between 1971 and 1973 edited its magazine.

She had settled in the Lamu archipelago of Kenya 15 years ago, moving to the idyllic Manda Island around seven years ago.

She regularly returned to France for medical care and family visits, and kept a flat in Paris.

Ms Dedieu’s kidnapping came only three weeks after a similar gang killed a British man and kidnapped his wife.

British tourist Judith Tebbutt, 56, was on holiday with her husband David at the remote Kiwayu Safari Village resort in Kenya when armed men burst into their cottage on 11 September.

Mr Tebbutt was shot dead, while his wife was taken away in a speedboat, by Somali pirates.

  1. Much as I am disgusted by this story, I am not surprised in the least. Islamic teaching turns human beings into the lowest lifeforms on the planet – bar none!
    There is nothing so vile, so degenerate and so immoral that a radical Islamist would not stoop to.
    This is a sick, twisted cult, and anyone on this planet, in this day and age, who cannot see just how evil Islam really is has to be so stupid as to be certifiable as mentally handicapped. How anyone can support or apologise for islam after reading stories like this one, beggars belief.

  2. My reaction was the same as the previous comment. I am saddened and disgusted by this lady’s and others’ treatment, but the result can only be surprising to them. Do they imagine they, the useful leftist idiots, are immune to the consequences of islam? Probably they still don’t get it in their last horrible seconds. A tragic end to do-goodism.

  3. Somalia is the dregs of human society, and is an environmental and social disaster. There are a few options.

    1. PJ O’Rourke option – seal the country, and airdrop ammunition.

    2. Drastic action

  4. I am reminded how around 1860 Raja Brooke set sail from India in a leaky yacht and two or three companions (he had been wounded in the mutiny and was discharged from the British Army) they had side arms, rifles and a one or two pound cannon for protection. Brooke seeing what the slavers and pirates in that region were doing declared war on them. He some how managed to stop almost all slave raids and cut the number of pirate attacks back drastically. He did this by 1) getting the British and American Navy’s to help and 2) not taking captives, he killed any pirate or slaver he caught.

  5. His war of talking was taking the war to their villages and burning them while killing all the men they could find, the Sultan of Borneo liked his actions so much he made Brooke the Raja of a section of the island, and made Brooke’s nephew the heir to this title.
