ISIS Just Released An Entirely New Type Of Video That Could Be The Most Horrifying Of Them All

ISIS has released a chilling, bellicose video of its child soldiers urging Muslims and Arabs to stop talking and start acting. Unlike past videos in which children often had a supporting role, they speak directly and defiantly into the camera throughout the recently released footage.

Some children videoed were reportedly as young as 3. In the video, boys recited verses of the Quran and delivered monologues on violence.

“Where are the martyrs? Where are the suicide attackers?” one asks, later calling out, “Give me my weapon.” He then grabbed a gun almost as tall as himself.

The release of the video, which also depicted children training outside and listening to lectures on Shariah law, follows a number of killings recently carried out by the child soldiers fighting with the Islamic State group–or, as they were referred to in the video, “The Cubs of Dijla.”

The Muslim extremists have boasted of their child soldiers before. In November 2014, ISIS posted a video purportedly from Kazakhstan. As reported by The Guardian, the video showed a Kazakh boy of about nine combat-stripping an assault rifle, then training with others in its use.

“I will be the one who slaughters you, oh kuffar,” one boy said, grinning at the camera. “I will be a mujahid, if God wills it.”

A 10-year-old boy from the November video was also shown in a later video that depicted the execution of two prisoners.

Members of the Islamic State group routinely post images on social media of children holding severed heads and playing on streets where dismembered bodies are splayed carelessly on the sidewalk. One image posted to Twitter showed a child playacting the beheading of American hostage James Foley using a doll.

A U.N. report on war crimes in Syria pointed to the indoctrination of children as a “vehicle for ensuring long-term loyalty” and creating a “cadre of fighters that will see violence as a way of life.”

Look Who Just Pledged $32 Billion To Promote Islam And Sharia Law In America

Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a senior member of the Saudi royal family, announced that he will be giving away his entire $32 billion fortune to charity–but his past statements and commitment to promote Islam in the United States have raised red flags for some.

Alwaleed Philanthropies’ statement regarding the prince’s intentions indicates his donation would “help build bridges to foster cultural understanding.”

“Philanthropy is a personal responsibility, which I embarked upon more than three decades ago and is an intrinsic part of my Islamic faith. With this pledge, I am honoring my life-long commitment to what matters most – helping to build a more peaceful, equitable and sustainable world for generations to come,” says Prince Alwaleed.

Alwaleed is CEO of the Saudi investment conglomerate Kingdom Holding Company and has large stakes in Citigroup, Apple, Twitter, General Motors, 21st Century Fox, Euro Disney, and other companies, according to the Huffington Post. He has been called Saudi Arabia’s Warren Buffet.

Investor’s Business Daily notes that Alwaleed has extensive ties to Muslim Brotherhood leaders. “For example, he tapped ‘tele-Islamist’ Tariq Al-Suwaidan, widely reported to be a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait, as the channel director of his Islamic religious TV outlet Al Risala.”

The network’s “Supreme Advisory Committee” has included Abdullah Omar Naseef, whom ex-federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy says is “a major Muslim Brotherhood figure” who has helped raise funds for al-Qaida.”

In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, Alwaleed gave a check for $10 million to the Twin Towers Fund to aid victims of the terrorist attacks. However, after making the donation, he also released a statement, CNN reports, which called on the United States to “re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stand toward the Palestinian cause.”

“While the U.N. passed clear resolutions…calling for the Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and Gaza Strip decades ago, our Palestinian brethren continue to be slaughtered at the hands of Israelis while the world turns the other cheek,” the statement said.

Then-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani directed the check be returned. “To suggest that there’s a justification for [the terrorist attacks] only invites this happening in the future,” he said. “It is highly irresponsible and very, very dangerous…So I think not only are those statements wrong, they’re part of the problem,” the former mayor added.

According to Investor’s Business Daily, in 2002, Alwaleed “gave $500,000 to the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, which federal authorities have linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.”

In 2005, the prince contributed $40 million to expand Islamic studies in the United States. Twenty million dollars went to Harvard to create a campus-wide Shariah law studies program, while another $20 million was pumped into Georgetown University for a “Muslim-Christian understanding.”

In his statement released earlier this week, Alwaleed indicates that he plans to model his philanthropic work after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The money will go towards “supporting needy communities, through health promotion, eradication of diseases, provision of electric power to remote villages and hamlets, building orphanages and schools, and much more, as well as providing disaster relief and empowering women, youth and poverty alleviation.”

Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, commented: “Prince Alwaleed’s generous commitment promises to significantly extend the great work that his foundation is already doing. His gift is an inspiration to all of us working in philanthropy around the world.”

Anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller sees Alwaleed’s generosity as a Trojan Horse, believing the money will primarily go towards what she calls the “Islamization of America.”

The Saudis have spent billions already: 80% of the mosques [built] in America are Saudi funded. Islamic groups working to impose the sharia are largely funded by the Saudis.

“We can look forward to 32 billion more of the kingdom’s brand of Islam, while censoring criticism of Islam,” writes Geller.

Shocking New Study Reveals Just How Many Muslims Support ISIS (And It’s Frightening)

Yet another poll of “regular” Muslims seems to show that a shockingly high number actually agree with Muslim extremism. This time, a poll finds that a whopping 42 million support the creation of a worldwide caliphate, an Islamic order that would outlaw all other religions.

Many non-Muslims console themselves with the assumption that “most Muslims” don’t support extremism or terrorism. But nearly every time a poll is taken, this notion that Muslims stand four square against extremism is shot down.

According to Ryan Mauro of the Clarion Project, this new study should serve as a warning about Muslim extremism. With these results, “ISIS is only a fraction of what it could potentially become,” Mauro said.

“If we don’t act quickly, this is still going to grow,” he continued, “and what we’re looking at today is going to look like the good old days compared to the future.”

This isn’t the first time a study seemed to show that Muslims agree with or lean toward Islamic extremism.

A recent study of British Muslims found that fully a third felt that the British government was at fault for the radicalization of young Muslims, not Islam, not ISIS, and not al Qaeda.

Britain isn’t alone. A new study of U.S. Muslims conducted last month by the Center for Security Policy found that a large number of American Muslims felt that sharia law was better than the U.S. Constitution. They also felt that they should be allowed to ignore the Constitution and instead be judged by “sharia courts” in America.

Not long ago, another poll by the Pew Research Center found that 88% of Muslims in Egypt and 62% of Muslims in Pakistan favor the death penalty for people who leave the Muslim religion.

The same poll found that honor killings were acceptable to many Muslims and that putting adulterers to death was a perfectly sane punishment.

Finally, during the “draw Mohammad” controversy, not to mention the murders of 12 staff members of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, large numbers of Muslims around the world agreed that freedom of speech should be illegal and that any harsh words against Islam should be made a crime.

US Troops Were Just Ordered To Publicly Do This In Honor Of Muslim-Celebrated Ramadan

According to a recent bulletin posted to the U.S. Central Command website, military personnel stationed in Islamic territories will be expected to fast from food, beverages and tobacco during the month of Ramadan.

Already several days into the Islamic holy period, the June 24 statement shared specific instruction and advice for those serving in the Middle East.

“U.S. military members serving in countries that observe Ramadan are required to adhere to certain practices while outside U.S. installations,” the CENTCOM announcement stated.

The article explained that many businesses would be closed during daylight in keeping with the holiday’s fast schedule. Furthermore, military policy requires adherence to some foreign practices during service abroad.

“The only personnel exempt from this requirement,” the bulletin stated, “are those performing strenuous labor outside U.S. controlled areas. They are authorized to drink and consume as much food as they need to maintain proper hydration and energy.”

News of this directive was met with sharp criticism by many on social media, including prominent anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller.

Capture

Reaction to Geller’s post was mixed. Some believed the military is enforcing policies hypocritically.

“What happened to ‘separation of church and state’ that anti-Christian people love to quote?” one Twitter user asked.

Another called it “[m]ore of Obama’s BS,” wondering if Jewish troops are given Kosher food.

Others, however, pointed out that the policy restricts activities off U.S.-controlled bases only. One critic referred to criticism of the policy as a half truth.

“We have been told to not eat in front of the Afghans,” the user wrote. “Not to fast. Most of us do it as a matter of course.”

Is this military policy appropriate? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Wrong Flag, Wrong Issues Evidence Christian Hypocrisy In Charleston

In no way am I disregarding, demeaning, or belittling the death of the nine people murdered in a church in Charleston, S.C. Their lives are not insignificant. And grief, sorrow, anger, and desire for justice are all right and healthy responses. But the response to these murders makes obvious two alarming realities about American Christians.

It’s astounding and disturbing to observe selective displays of public grief and prayer in America. What does it take to be publicly mourned by Christians—to be shot in church?

When and where was Christian “solidarity” displayed over Memorial Day weekend after 56 people were shot in Chicago, of whom 12 died including a 4-year-old girl and three teenagers? Where was the public display of Christian prayer and hand-wringing after 23 people in New York City and 28 in Baltimore were shot, including 9 killed, over the same weekend?

The concern many express is that such public displays of “solidarity” for the 9 killed in a church comes across as Pharisaical no matter how well-intentioned such prayers may be. The Pharisees loved to pray publicly but did little to nothing to recognize their direct responsibility for others’ suffering, most of which was preventable.

For everyone who travels to Charleston to pray, drive north a few hours to visit Holy Islamville. South Carolina and New York are the only two states that boast Shari’a compliant towns.

For politicians and concerned citizens, the flag that Nikki Haley and every liberal and conservative American should be most concerned about is not red, white, and blue; it’s black. Yet most South Carolinians claim complete ignorance of the reality that Shari’a law freely exists in their state (at least Rep. Chip Limehouse is trying to outlaw it), which causes far greater suffering than the murder of nine people.

Google these three pastors to understand what Shari’a law means for Saeed Abedini in Iran, Umar Mulinde in Uganda, and James McConnell in Northern Ireland. These men are just a few to “pray for,” have moments of silence for, and march in unison for, and then forget about when it’s time to dash off to little league or quote German pastor Dietrich Bonheoffer in Sunday School.

Earth to Nikki Haley and South Carolinians: murder isn’t caused by the Confederate flag or by street signs. But in the name of Allah, the Qur’an requires everyone who rejects Shari’a law to be murdered. Why the silence about a Shari’a compliant town existing in South Carolina?

The foremost problem in America is the willful ignorance and apathy of American Christians who refuse to acknowledge that the blood of millions of Christians—worldwide—is on their hands. Christians willfully ignore the reality that the politicians they vote for and continue to support—including Senators Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and many others (even Common Core supporter Jeb Bush) are “besties” with Qatar Islamists deliberately funding and killing Christians.

Lindsey Graham’s financial connection to Qatar is no secret. Nor is his advocacy to fund and train “moderate rebels” who deliberately behead Christians (as Muhammad did) and kidnap and sell girls under nine years old at sex slave bazaars. It’s public knowledge that the American government orchestrated and has funded Iran’s nuclear weapons program since 1953; yet Christians remain silent about the politicians they endorse who continue to violate Article III of the U.S. Constitution.

Christians continue to endorse politicians who have sent $12 billion to Iran over the last few months, and 75 percent of foreign aid goes to countries that commit genocide against Jews and Christians and violate women’s and girls’ human rights.

There is nothing wrong with prayer. But the sacrilegious publicly pray, wringing their hands, selectively grieving over a few deaths when they claim ignorance about the millions of deaths and incalculable human suffering for which they are directly responsible. Do Christians seriously believe traveling to Washington, D.C. to eat Eggs Benedict at national prayer breakfasts or publicly praying in Charleston, S.C., will free imprisoned American Christians and U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati (whom the Iranian government continues to torture)?

American Christians can idealize and quote Bonhoeffer all they want. But doing so while blaming the wrong flag, claiming ignorance about Islamville, and praying publicly about the murder of nine people only evidences willful hypocrisy.

The Germans of Goth and Ohrduf made the same excuses. And as he did in 1944, General George Patton would undoubtedly publicly vomit today for the same reasons. Christians, more than anyone else, are without excuse for the atrocities they fund, then deny, and then do nothing about.

Patton didn’t just fold his hands and close his eyes to appeal to heaven in the face of violence and blatant injustice. He didn’t focus on the wrong flag or street signs. Patton got up off of his knees, opened his eyes, and fought to liberate the oppressed.
