Syrian Jihadis ‘Take Aim’ at Christian Toddler

Syrian Jihadis ‘Take Aim’ at Christian Toddler

Posted By Raymond Ibrahim On April 22, 2014 @ 12:30 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | No Comments

According to Sham Times and other Arabic websites, jihadi social media networks posted the above picture of a child sitting on the ground while surrounded by armed men pointing their rifles at him.  The caption appearing with the picture, purportedly posted by a supporter of the Free Syrian Army, is “Our youngest hostage from among the hostile sects of Kessab.”

Kessab is a predominantly Christian Armenian village in Syria near the Turkish border.  Earlier it was invaded by jihadis, who terrorized, pillaged churches, and prompted some 2000 residents to flee.  Initial reports had stated that about a dozen families remained as hostages.

Since the picture appeared on Arabic social media, many have expressed shock and outrage, condemning the Syrian “rebels,” while others cast doubt on the authenticity of the picture.

Of course, those wondering what the jihadis have to gain from taking such a picture and making it public would do well to remember that these are the same “rebels” who decapitate people and wave their severed and bloodied heads in front of cameras while smiling; these are the same “freedom fighters” who literally eat their victims on camera.

Surely “teasing” an infidel toddler – a subhuman – with their rifles and sharing it with their sadistic comrades via the Internet for a “laugh” should not be too surprising?

At any rate, the fact remains: the “Free Syrian Army,” along with other “rebel” groups operating in Syria, are guilty of countless barbaric crimes against humanity — including against women and children.

UPDATE: Commenter LeviDocker at PJ Tatler posts a very apt excerpt from Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s classic work, The Brothers Karamazov, which follows:

These Turks took a pleasure in torturing children, too; cutting the unborn child from the mother’s womb, and tossing babies up in the air and catching them on the points of their bayonets before their mothers’ eyes. Doing it before the mothers’ eyes was what gave zest to the amusement. Here is another scene that I thought very interesting. Imagine a trembling mother with her baby in her arms, a circle of invading Turks around her. They’ve planned a diversion: they pet the baby, laugh to make it laugh. They succeed, the baby laughs. At that moment a Turk points a pistol four inches from the baby’s face. The baby laughs with glee, holds out its little hands to the pistol, and he pulls the trigger in the baby’s face and blows out its brains. Artistic, wasn’t it? By the way, Turks are particularly fond of sweet things, they say.

If McCain & Obama have their way, they'll be pointing TOW missile launchers at babies.

Savages.

We have been at war with Islam since its inception, 1,400 years.

The only thing that’s kept them at bay has been superior European technology. They sat on Spain for 700 years. Twice, they threatened the heart of Europe: Vienna. (And both times it was AFTER Columbus!)

We need a crusade against them. Solve this issue forever. 1,400 years? Let’s not leave the problem for the next generation.

That’s how I feel.

I remember reading Brothers Karamazov, and being chilled by that part of the book.

For anyone who has not read that whole book, though it is long, I highly recommend it. A no-good man is murdered, and his four sons, all with motive, are suspect: a bastard son, a priest in training, a worldly professor, and a military man.

Good novel.

Can't agree with that. McCain might be pointing tows in circumstances I wouldn't agree wit. More likely providing them to people who couldn't use them. Obama, he only points his finger. Kids get thrown out of school for this stuff.

Democrat women only fire in the air.

Either throw them out of office or legalize finger guns for kids!

Yes, those rebels. Supporting rebels is bipartisan. I’d like to see a bit more selectivity. Can’t we find rebels in the Sudan to support? Plenty of Christians and animists dying there.

Don't think so, not pointing it in the air.

Probably Colt 45s

Barbarians. I can’t put a finger on the facial expression, but it’s not abject fear. Perhaps he doesn’t understand. Perhaps he knows more than the terrorists.

IIRC, a so-called Muslim scholar said that if Mecca and Medina were destroyed, it would be over for Islam.

So who's got the balls to actually do it? My guess is that only Israel is willing but, it would only be as a last resort.

Not a big deal for daemonrats. Just a too late term abortion.

Yes. Freedom fighters. Like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Al Queda in Libya and the Maidan in Ukraine.

These are NOT to be confused with terrorists, like Cliven Bundy and his supporters in Nevada.
