"In a video message apparently made by the leader of the Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of hundreds of schoolgirls nearly three weeks ago, called them slaves and threatened to "sell them in the market, by Allah."

"Western education should end," Mr. Shekau said in the 57-minute video, speaking in Hausa and Arabic. "Girls, you should go and get married." The Islamist leader also warned that he would "give their hands in marriage because they are our slaves. We would marry them out at the age of 9. We would marry them out at the age of 12."

The message was received by news agencies in Nigeria on Monday and is similar to previous videos purportedly from Boko Haram."* Ana Kasparian, Michael Shure (Al Jazeera America), and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) break it down on The Young Turks.

The Largest Online News Show in the World. Hosted by Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian. LIVE STREAMING weekdays 6-8pm ET.

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. Young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations. (American Heritage Dictionary)

The Young Turks (Winner - Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.

We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.

The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don't patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
