The terrifying rise of ISIS in East

ISIS issued a rallying cry to the Muslims of Indonesia last week by sharing a disturbing picture of a baby lying next to an AK47 and hand grenade.

A note beside the sleeping toddler, signed off with ‘Indonesia’, read: ‘Uncles and aunts come and fight in Syria for jihad wherever you are.’

While the terror group continues its battle for superiority in Iraq and Syria, Islamic State’s ideology and propaganda videos are drawing in Muslim supporters from as far as south-east Asia.

Thousands from countries such as Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand the Philippines and Malaysia have joined ISIS on the battlefield in the Middle East. And the terror group has ‘tens of thousands’ of supporters and sympathisers in those countries.
