The next time a liberal neighbor or friend spouts-off about the supposed “Islamophobia” of conservatives refusing to accept Syrian refugees into the U.S., keep this in mind: the terrorists really aren’t messing around.
How seriously is ISIS taking their jihad against the West? Pretty darn serious, it turns out, as reports detail how ISIS fighters not only forced a four-year-old boy witness his father’s execution in retaliation for his efforts against the terrorist group, but a week after the execution, strapped the little boy with explosives and blew him up.
This is the “religion of peace” that poses a serious threat to the Western world.
Islamic State blew up a 4-year-old child after fighters murdered his father in front of him.
The child was strapped with remote explosives a week after he was forced to witness his father’s execution, according to a Dec. 28 report by Alsumaria News, an Iraqi television station. The child’s murder was apparently revenge for his father participating in an attack on an ISIS outpost which killed two fighters.
Speaking to Alsumaria News, Popular Mobilization Force official Jabar el-Maamouri said a bomb “was attached to a four-year-old child through a remote-controlled device so that his organs would be blown apart.”
The killing took place in the Al-Shirqat district of the Salah al-Din province in Iraq, an area which is considered an ISIS stronghold.
This is a horrendous story, but there is much we can learn from it.
These are the people waging war against the West while we argue whether it’s immoral to deny entry to tens-of-thousands of unknown Syrians.
If we are not willing to take this fight as seriously as they do, we are doomed. Period.
