Junior Terrorists .

It would appear that terrorists are becoming younger daily.

In what was clearly a terrorist linked incident Curtis Cheng, a much liked, long serving civilian member of NSW Police Dept. was shot dead on Friday Oct 2nd by radicalised 15-year-old Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar, who was born in Iran and came from an Iraqi-Kurdish background. Jabar himself was then shot by a ‘special constable’

 What we would suggest and we suspect is that there was some influence, whether it was ideologically, religious or politically motivated, that determined and influenced the 15-year-old to go and commit this horrendous act of violence.”

Police conducted several raids and looked at the CCT footage of the mosque he attended before the murder. Jabar was not under surveillance and was not considered a threat but some of the targets of Wednesday’s raid were the focus of anti-terrorism raids a year ago. Seventeen people were detained in that action, which police said prevented a beheading plot.

All that is know is that he was radicalised on line. He went to the Parramatta mosque with a black backpack. Presumably his Muslim gown and cap were in the bag. He may have met with others there and we now know that’s where he got to gun. Two men have been arrested today.

The Australian reports that Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar, communicated online with a British radical associated with the terrorist group Islamic State. This has become a significant line of inquiry for detectives investigating Jabar’s background, including his associations at Sydney’s Parramatta mosque.

“School friends of the teenager have also told The Australian Jabar used to sing Islamic State propaganda songs in the playground of his high school, near both the mosque and the scene of his attack.

Yesterday it was reported:

The head of the Australian Federal Police has warned that the threat of terrorism in Australia is getting worse, after confirmation that a 12-year-old is among a group of radicalised youth on the police radar in connection with the Parramatta shooter.

Last night’s 7.30 Report revealed a 12-year-old boy is being watched by police because he is part of a group of 18 extremists who may have helped the 15-year-old shooter.  Police say they are shocked that the ages of those on watch lists is getting younger.

AFP Commissioner Andrew Colvin stated the issue of terrorism was becoming more difficult to manage.

“We’re shocked that a 12-year-old is on the police radar for these type of matters,”

“Yes, the problem is getting worse for Australia, not better.

“The numbers of individuals that we’re concerned about overseas has plateaued a little, as the Foreign Minister has said.

“Some very good work is being done by our border agencies and our police and security agencies to stop people from leaving for the conflict zones, but there’s no doubt that this problem is becoming more acute and more difficult.”

The Council on Foreign Relations reported that ISIL allegedly released a propaganda film in January this showing a 10 year-old boy executing two men said to be Russian spies. The boy is believed to be from Kazakhstan and has appeared in previous ISIL training videos with other young boys. Children are increasingly being used by terror groups. A bomb strapped to a girl about 10 years old exploded in northern Nigeria too killing at least 16.

They say:

The exploitation of children by terrorist groups is not new, but groups such as ISIS, Boko Haram, and the Pakistani Taliban are increasingly using children to carry out their activities. The move is strategic as it is shocking. It provides heightened media attention and allows terrorist groups to groom more loyal members. Children are easier to indoctrinate and less likely to resist, since they do not yet fully understand their own mortality.

They further say:

Regardless of motivation, the use of children by terrorist groups is now a global phenomenon, with recruitment efforts cropping up even in developed countries. In August 2013, a recruitment video was released online, featuring three young al-Shabaab members from Minneapolis. One boy named Troy Kastigar said to the camera, “If you guys only knew how much fun we have over here. This is the real Disneyland. You need to come here and join us.”

When training young children for suicide missions or frontline engagement, ISIS tries to desensitize them to violence by exposing them to actual beheadings or videos of them. In August, Khaled Sharrouf, Australia’s most wanted terrorist, shared an image on Facebook of his very young son holding a severed head with both his hands. In January 2014, the terrorist group posted a photo on Facebook of their “youngest mujahid” in Aleppo, balancing an automatic weapon against a set of barricades.

Family units also remain intact in many of the terrorist organizations, as many men who join ISIS take their families along with them. Within these networks (in ISIS’ case, the so-called Islamic State), members are encouraged to train their children to become the next generation of jihadists. When recruiting children from outside their own family units, particularly online, the terrorist groups use methods that are similar to those employed by sexual predators: gaining trust and establishing rapport, fulfilling emotional needs, and then isolating a victim from family and friends.

Eventually, the terrorist group begins to shift the victim’s moral viewpoint. In ISIS’ case, terrorists subject the children to violent videos, as sexual predators would expose their victims to pornography. In both scenarios, the child is made to think that violent or abnormal sexual behaviors are normal. If the victim resists or a family member intervenes, ISIS uses blackmail or coercion to maintain control.

It’s quite sickening to see photos of children wearing terrorist ‘outfits’

What started this was this first video from Al Arabiya which was posted on Facebook. It lead to the second one. I found them to be quite sickening and uploaded them to YouTube.
The first one is a little shaky for a few seconds.

  1. The final revelation of God was to His Apostle John 95 AD (I know Jews will not accept this as Jews do not accept the deity of Jesus Yeshuah.) however please consider this. From the koran: ” Smite the necks of the disbelievers whenever you fight against them. Those who die fighting for Allah will be rewarded. 47:4″ now consider what the book of Revelation said 95 AD “Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. ” here is direct prophesy that Islam; the koran is the religion of Satan. I have reason to suspect that the mark of the beast is the Halal certification brand.

      I find Eric’s suggestion that John might have been referring to Islam as beheading was not an uncommon practice in the time of John’s writing. Further the specific text that Eric quotes speaks in terms of the “first resurrection” which has already past (Rev 20:5). I would suggest that other proof text would need to be revealed that relates “the beast’ to Islam and Islam to Satan.

      I note that the Australian Department of Agriculture identifies 26 different HALAL certifiers, each of which has its own distinctive brand, I therefore wonder which one or combination of symbols raises Eric’s suspicions? I do note though that most contain within their seal the word HALAL in arabic and English script. Some further explanation is required on this point in Eric’s contribution I feel.

      Should however Eric be suggesting the certification of product in this or any other country as HALAL is some how promoting Satanic affirmation or that the availability of such products on this or any other country’s grocery shelves should be curtailed – then I think this is going a step to far. I am reminded of that famous poem of Pastor Martin Niemöller “First They Came…….”

      I would not wish to be one of those who stood by……while others were taken away.
