Most children play with dolls, but ISIS uses them as training tools to learn how to do beheadings.
A horrifying, newly released video by an ISIS supporter on a German Telegram channel shows a small child in a full burqa, waving a butcher knife while singing an Islamic song.
According to translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute, the child is saying, ““State of Islam, attack and defeat the religion of heresy and the gang of the military. Instill terror, exterminate the leftover remnants [of the army], and slaughter.”
She then grabs up a doll and starts sawing it’s head off, as if it’s the most normal thing in the world, while singing in the background says, “Soon, soon, you shall witness wonders. A fearsome struggle you shall see. The battles will be waged in your own lands. My sword has been sharpened to destroy you. We marched through the night to cut and behead, with the blade of revenge that attacks those who deserve it.”
The child holds up the head as a trophy, then drops it on the floor with a thud, while yelling out “Allahu akbar!”
“With spirit of night, young men of terror… the Islamic State will remain and expand,” she says.
Meanwhile, Obama is on track to reach – and possibly even exceed – his goal of bringing 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States before the end of September, and says they have gone through a very careful and thorough vetting process.
“We believe … the people who are fleeing Syria are the most harmed by terrorism. They are parents. They are children. They are orphans,” Secretary of State John Kerry said. “It is very important that we do not close our hearts to the victims of such violence.”
