ISIS has released a new video, showing approximately 1400 children that they have kidnapped from non-Muslims and that they are training to become suicide bombers. Some of them are as young as five years old:
New estimates suggest that over 1,400 yazidi children are being held by the Islamic State and are being trained to be jihadi fighters or trained to carry out suicide attacks.
The Directorate of Yezidi Abductees Affairs in Duhok, a city in northern Iraq,announced on Wednesday that there are believed to be 3,770 yazidis still held captive by IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL), regional news outlets are reporting.
Hussein Kuru, who heads abductees affairs office and traces abducted Yazidis in the Duhok province, said at a press conference that as many as 2,640 abducted yazidis of both sexes have been freed from IS by the Kurdish Regional Government and its peshmerga forces.
But among those 3,770 believed to still be held by IS, Kuru said that 1,400 are minors who are being brainwashed by the barbaric extremist group to carry out suicide attacks or join its military ranks.
“IS militants are reportedly training 1,400 Yazidi children to carry out military activities and suicide attacks,” Kuru said. (source)
While the article focuses on the Yezidi sect, one cannot doubt there are Christian children among them, as well.
Islam has always been kidnapping children and abusing them to serve the perverse ends of Islam. In Ottoman Turkey, this was called the devsirme system, or the “blood tax,” whereby the Ottomans kidnapped Christian children (usually boys), castrated them, and forced them to serve in the Ottoman military, often times in the capacity of a janissary, which would be the equivalent of a special forces soldier today.
Like what we have said before, ISIS is really not all that shocking. They simply do what Muslims in the past have done, based on the model of Muhammad and his followers. What makes it such a surprise to people is that, unlike many in the West, ISIS actually practices what it preaches.
