Cute Babies And Children Exploited By ISIS For Propaganda Purposes
It goes without saying that everything ISIS has done so far has been horrendous, but the extremist Islamic organization just keeps pushing the envelope when it comes to the disgusting, despicable and immoral.
The group, which seems to be equally active in actual terrorism as it is in its online propaganda, keeps posting pictures of really cute babies, toddlers and young children to different online accounts. One of the most active ones is a Twitter account by a certain Osman Iraqi, who uses the online service to post endearing photos of little ones posing with or without guns, index finger raised victoriously, in front of iconic black al-raya flags. This particular user posts other content too, such as pictures of combat, beheadings, heads of ISIS and anti-Western cartoons.
The babies in the pictures are, of course, adorable. Some of the girls already wear burqas or hijabs, even though they couldn’t be more than four, five years old. The boys in pictures hold rifles, handguns, knives and copies of the Quran. You know, the usual stuff.
We can imagine that supporters of ISIS are thrilled to see these photos, which show the bright future of the Islamic world. With kids like these, the holy war is as good as won, right?
Are these images supposed to introduce future jihadists to the world or are they just showing that ISIS is just like the rest of us, a bunch of warm, family people who love kids? Either way, the photos are chilling, disturbing and quite ominous.
