A recent propaganda video released by the Islamist State terrorist group (ISIS) showcases how it is building the next generation of jihadis, by training and indoctrinating young children at special camps.
The video, produced in the slick, professional style of most other ISIS videos, shows young children assembling assault rifles and practicing military drills with loaded guns, while their Islamist instructor hails them as “the next generation” who will fulfill ISIS’s dream of world domination under the banner of Islam.
One child recruit, who looks about 10 years old, identifies himself as “Abdullah” from Kazakhstan and expresses his desire to kill non-Muslims.
“I will be the one who slaughters you, O kuffar (infidel), I will be a mujahid (holy warrior) Inshallah (God-willing).”
