It may not be a surprise to you bros that ISIS is being a giant dickface once again. I mean, we are talking about the terrorist group who executed 13 teenagers because they were watching a soccer match on TV. And the dudes who kidnap women and sell them as sex slaves or force them to marry ISIS fighter. Aaannd that whole burning Jordanian pilots alive in cages thing.
Their latest exploits? Locking its next generation of killers, whom they call ‘cubs of the caliphate,’ in a steel cage and forcing them to beat the shit out of of each other while whipping them with sticks.
According to the Daily Mail, ISIS released a seven-minute propaganda video on social media showing masked boys breaking tiles with their heads, crawling through metal tubes while ISIS fighters shoot live rounds above their heads, and performing acrobatic fighting moves. The video also depicts children laying on their backs while ISIS soldiers walk on their stomachs.
The video is reportedly said to attract foreign fighters to join the terror group.
According to Professor Anthony Glees, the director of Buckingham University’s Centre of Security and Intelligence Studies, children education and childhood is hijacked from an early age.
“Mothers elsewhere could be vulnerable, thinking their child could be a failure in Britain – or join IS and become a warrior. This is sickening glorification of the brutalisation of kids for IS. It is designed to appeal to mothers and fathers but children are also the target.”
Experts indicate that it is essential that ISIS recruits potential soldiers at a young age in order to consolidate territory which is constantly under attack.
Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism told The Daily Mail,
“Indoctrinating kids with ISIS fanaticism is not only the easiest population to indoctrinate but also produces new generations of ISIS believers and ultimately at some point fighters. This is the way you build a Caliphate.”
ISIS, this is cute and all but uh, we have Dwayne the Rock Johnson, so you may want to go back to the drawing board.
