France: Two Brothers Convert To Islam, Fall In Love With Death, Die In Syria
For peaceful purposes. Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised when death quickly follows those who convert to the very religion that is synonymous with death itself …
Revelation 6:8, “And I looked, and behold a [chlōros – green] horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts [thērion – savage, brutal, bestial men] of the earth…”
By François Ausseill, AFP – “Nicolas Bons, a young convert to Islam from a comfortable middle class French background, has died fighting in Syria barely four months after his half-brother met the same fate, their father said Monday.
In a story that has provoked bewilderment, the mother of 30-year-old Nicolas was informed by text message from the frontline that her son had been ‘martyred’ on December 22 in a suicide truck bombing in the Syrian province of Homs, the father, Gerard Bons, told AFP by phone from his home in French Guiana.
Nicolas’s half-brother Jean-Daniel had died in fighting at the start of August. He was 22 and had been introduced to radical Islam by Nicolas, who had himself announced his conversion to his parents in 2009.
Nicolas’s personal journey mirrors that of many of the increasing number of converts to Islam who have signed up for jihad, or holy war.
Having struggled at school, Nicolas lost his way in his early 20s, developing a cannabis habit and picking up a conviction for petty dealing.
According to his family, all that stopped almost overnight when he found Islam. He soon became a regular visitor to a mosque in his home town of Toulouse and an assiduous reader of the Koran.
When Jean-Daniel, who until then had lived with his father in French Guiana, came to study in Toulouse in 2011, he too soon converted under Nicolas’s influence.
In March of last year the pair set off for Syria, having told their parents they were headed to the beach in Thailand.
A month later, they sent a letter revealing their true destination and in July Nicolas appeared, Kalashnikov and Koran in hand, in an Islamist propoganda video in which he calls on French President Francois Hollande to convert to Islam.
Jean-Daniel also features in the video but only looks on expressionless as his brother talks.
The two men’s father has admitted he has no idea how Nicolas became radicalised.
Toulouse was home to the radical Islamist Mohammed Merah, who killed seven people in and around the city in 2012.” Read more.

Flashback: The Muslim Suicide Convert: ‘It’s Gotten So Bad That Converting To Islam Is Almost A Form Of Suicide’ – “Muslim converts engage in terrorism at a higher rate than Muslims. It’s gotten so bad that converting to Islam is almost a form of suicide. The popular theory is that Muslim terrorist groups use converts because they blend in better. But in most Western countries, screening by race is nearly illegal and even in targeted countries where it isn’t, there are usually many members of Muslim ethnic groups in most major cities. There are four reasons for the rise of the Muslim Suicide Convert. Muslim converts are gullible, fanatical, suicidal and expendable. Let’s start with the last one…” Read more.
Flashback: Terrorism Without End: ‘Islam … Is A War Machine Whose Ideas Lubricate The Recruitment’ – “There are many today who recognize that the Islamist ideology espoused by Al Qaeda and its ilk has metastasized since 9/11 throughout the Muslim world. Unfortunately, the call to reality has largely fallen on the deaf ears of Western leadership. Nations can fight against armies, against a foe that is well defined, but a religious ideology that recognizes no borders, no limits, no definition of peace apart from its own is an ideology that no nation will ever defeat, and an ideology that will continue to become more mainstream each and every day until its fiery end at the epiphany of Christ Jesus in power and great glory …” Read more.
