Hostages Beg France to Surrender


TWO French journalists held hostage by militants in Iraq today said a French ban on Islamic headscarves in schools would cost them their lives.

The pair were shown in a video broadcast by Al-Jazeera television urging the French Government to revoke the ban.

"I call on President (Jacques) Chirac and the French Government to show good will toward the Arab and Islamic worlds by revoking the ban on wearing the hijab immediately," said Mr Chesnot, speaking in English.

"I also urge all French citizens to demonstrate against this law and demand its annulment because it is unfair and wrong.

What do you do when the cheese-eating surrender monkeys actually have a good point?
