The parents of two victims who died in the Nov. 13 Paris attacks wrote a letter to French President Francois Hollande, notifying him they will no longer pay taxes and by extension fund the president’s “jihadist friends.”
The parents are furious with Hollande’s policies, which they claim allowed for the attack to happen. Paying taxes, the parents argue, will contribute to the surviving suspects’ attorneys fees and France’s new jihadist rehabilitation centers.

“You are a disaster for France. Your example is a disaster at all levels,” an excerpt of the letter reads, according to newspaper Le Figaro. “French youth has no future and will pay the price in no time. Our children have died as victims of your lax interference!”
The parents notified the tax office and will take the tax money and put it in an account until affected families are compensated. They also want the death penalty to be reinstated and handed to the terrorists.
The letter ends with the parents saying their kids voted for Hollande, despite their warning that he’s a man who “brings evil.”
The letter follows a notification many families received earlier in May, ordering them to pay taxes on behalf of their deceased loved ones. The families wanted an exception given the nature of their death, saying they “died for France.”
“To make us pay the taxes of a murdered child is unacceptable,” Patricia Correia, the mother of one of the victims, told BFM TV. “We already have enough sufferings and costs in our everyday life. This needs to be looked at closely and that there is a sensible response, namely that we are exempt from these taxes.”
