Caliphate Cub Scouts: Daesh Teaching Children to Torture, Kill ‘Infidels’
Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) continues to propagate its intolerant ideology of hatred, anti-humanism and the cult of death among children, distorting the teachings of Islam to suit their sectarian doctrine.
The terrorist organization Daesh is demonstrating its commitment to build a “caliphate” based on the principles of “purified” Islam: jihadists claim that they would pass the baton to the next generation of “Islamic State cubs.”Indeed, Daesh devotes much attention to establishing special training camps for children between the ages of 5-12. According to the organization’s propaganda videos, one of these camps, Farouk Institute for Cubs, is located in the province of Raqqa in Syria.
What are Islamist “cubs” being taught?
A 24-page Daesh document obtained by the Guardian reads that the camp education includes “Sharia sessions in [jurisprudence], doctrine and rulings, with special sessions in Islamic society and manners, and training on bearing light arms and the principles of use.”
The day usually starts at 4:00 am with prayers, followed by lectures in Islamic studies from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. However, a considerable part of the time is devoted to military training.
“Training on bearing arms and principles of use” means that the children are being taught to kill. Under the personal supervision of their “instructors”, young children and teenagers behead prisoners captured by Daesh.
