What's worse than jihadists beheading Christians and others, posing with their victim's heads? Child jihadists doing the same. As the Islamic State terrorists raise the ante on the world, they have made public that they are recruiting and using children as part of their operations.
Khaled Sharrouf is using his sons to fight in Syria as well as a number of other jihadists who are hoping to recruit more children for the cause. Recruiting children, they do not plan for their jihad to end anytime soon.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The emergence of a photo of Australian terrorist, Khaled Sharrouf's son, 7, posing with a severed head, has brought world attention to the fact that jihadists are using children as foot soldiers in their cause. This isn't a new practice, but it hasn't been publicized until recently. Now, the Islamic State is actively recruiting children away from their families to be conditioned to become jihadists.
The recruitment drives with their slick media and promises of respect, freedom and power, are working. Images now show that kids are even participating in the beheading of captured prisoners.
There is no low to which the Islamic State will not descend to spread their brand of Islam around the world. These people fully believe they are engaged in a war of righteousness that justifies their use of children to perpetrate violence upon other people -including other children.
Take a good look. This is what the world is up against. This is not an Iraqi problem, or a problem for Muslims or Christians living in the Middle East. This is your problem too. You have a responsibility as a citizen of the world to be informed, which is happening now, and then to act, which is up to you.
The only way to stop these people will be with a coordinated, global campaign designed to bring all these people do evil to justice, dead or alive.
Take a good look at the recruitment drive images, then scroll further to see what these children do, once in the ranks of the Islamic State.
Consider yourself warned.
ACT NOW TO FIGHT BACK - SAVE CHRISTIANS IN HARM'S WAY!
Slick recruiting campaigns target young adults and children both.
