Terrorist Groups Intensify Targeting of Children for Jihad

Children have become a key target group for recruitment by terrorist groups who are increasingly turning to social media to showcase their successful efforts in indoctrinating them for jihad. In January, for example, Wilayat Khorasan (or “Khorasan Province”), the Islamic State (ISIS)’s branch in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, released a propaganda video titled, “Cubs of the Caliphate Camp,” that showed young boys undergoing training for jihad.

    I guess adults are catching on and the terror groups need to find younger and younger suckers for their propaganda.

    Right, it’s easier to train children for bomb delivery compared with goats or ponies.

    A drop of napalm would sort this little lot.

    I’ll keep saying this – there is no such thing AS a ‘child soldier’. There are only soldiers.
