Totalitarians always brainwash their young, induce them to do things they should never even be witnessing.
Child Jihadists Hunt Down, Execute Bound Prisoners in New ISIS Video
The Islamic State released a grisly new video today showing child jihadists hunting down bound “apostates” in a live-fire training exercise.
The half-hour-long production, from ISIS headquarters in Raqqa, shows child jihadists — boys about 9 to 12 years old — crawling through brush carrying rifles and snipping through a barbed-wire fence toward a training compound with one-story buildings and dummies as targets.
Scenes in the video include the ISIS kids taking Quran classes, training with a variety of exercises, eating cafeteria-style lunches and watching ISIS films. A trainer wakes the kids from their dormitory-style bunks while it’s dark outside for more training.
In another part of the video, kids wielding rifles give individual pledges to fight for ISIS; one boy has a cast on his arm.
