Sydney Jihadi Forces Hostage to Post His Demands on Her Facebook Page

Expect the media to make a big deal the "social media" aspect of the story. But really, it's merely a communication vehicle, and thus far less important that the jihadi's list of demands.
Primarily the post states that the terrorist wants the world to know that “Australia is under attack by the Islamic State.” 
Mikhael [the woman forced to post on Facebook] states that the terrorist demands include wanting an Islamic State flag and to speak with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott via live broadcast. 
Further the terrorist has asked that “brothers” do not detonate two bombs located in the city. 
Mikhael indicated that hostages would be shot if the demands are not met.
Is that all? What, no all white dressing room, bottles of Moet et Chandon on ice and bowls of M&Ms with all the red ones removed?

Man, I hope none of these hostages succumb to Stockholm Syndrome, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if some of them do.
