ISIS Is Recruiting More Child Soldiers, And It Wants You To Know

  • Published on May 15, 2016
  • A new ISIS video is giving a glimpse into the terrorist group's recruiting efforts targeting child soldiers.
    Boys from Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines are shown reciting the Quran, wrestling and shooting guns.
    The boys burn their passports at the end of the video. One fighter has been translated as saying: "We renounce your so-called citizenship. We are coming to you with soldiers you will never be able to defeat. This is a promise from Allah."
    West Point's Combating Terrorism Center argues ISIS has been recruiting child soldiers at a rate rarely seen even among other extremist groups like the Taliban and Hezbollah.
    Since 2011, the Violation Documentation Center in Syria has recorded 312 "noncivilian" child deaths. And ISIS' suicide operations using child soldiers tripled from January 2015 to January 2016.
    These videos of camps have a purpose of their own, though. Some have argued it's not just the children in the videos who are learning the jihadist philosophy of Islam - the videos also effectively recruit children and adults watching online.
    Judging by the latest video, ISIS is trying to spread outside the Middle East to other countries with high Muslim populations. Indonesia, in particular, has the largest Muslim population in the world.
    This video includes clips from ISIS and music provided courtesy of APM Music.

      All they will know when they grow up is to kill. It’s really bad because they basically are making killing robots that have no soul, no feelings. They will obey every order and kill whatever needs to be killed

    Come on. Under actual combat situations, normal *adult* soldiers find it hard to end lives. What do they think *child* soldiers will do? I highly doubt they'll have the guts to even fire their weapons at their targets.

    Thy March lagging to the front and come home crying and old looking. A child, no matter the training, doesn’t have the psyche of an adult. Germany at the end of WWll saw multitudes of children coming home from frontlines as mental and emotional wrecks!
    We’ve seen and watched American battle hardened veterans still dealing with PTSD. Veterans in the Vietnam war turning to drugs in order to forget the realities of war they inflicted on the population.
    I wonder if these parents would actually send off their kids to die in an all out war??? I doubt that very much!!!
    Yet in Ukraine child soldiers under AZOV getting conditioned under the influence of drugs as video footage have been circulating on the net. Absolute disgusting to corrupt the mind and heart of youngsters!
