This is quite interesting – and frightening. By preaching the Quran (Muhammad’s revelations) and the Hadiths (life of Muhammad), Islamic State is able to make innocent children into executioners and terrorists. Thousands of mosques in the West are preaching the exact same books, which might explain the increased religious radicalizion in Muslim communities.
CNN clip on Islamic State indoctrination of children:
“ISIS’ recent video showing a child shooting a man whom the extremist group claimed was an Israeli spy is the latest example of how the militants exploit children in their propaganda.
As ISIS encourages foreign fighters to bring their families into the parts of Syria and Iraq where it imposes its brutal rule, the catalog of children taking part in shocking acts is grim and growing.
The deeply disturbing cases shine a light into the range of ways the militants are using children to further their aims. …
Another boy told CNN last year that ISIS forced his father to send him to one of its children’s camps in northern Syria when he was just 13.
“For 30 days we woke up and jogged, had breakfast, then learned the Quran and the Hadith of the Prophet. Then we took courses on weapons, Kalashnikovs and other light military stuff,” said the boy, who later fled to Turkey with his family.”
