Syrian Jihadis ‘Take Aim’ at Christian Toddler

513847When it comes to Muslim persecution of Christians, increasingly the past is a blueprint to the present.

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?

Nor is such behavior unprecedented.  All one need do is consider the following excerpt based on real events from Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s classic work, The Brothers Karamazov, to appreciate how the present mirrors the past:

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.

    I recall that quote from The Brothers Karamazov from years ago. It’s ghastly that it’s so relevant regarding the Moslem savages today.

  • uleaveuswithnoalternative

    Nothing new for Islam/Islamists, this is standard operating procedure for them.

    Remember the Fogel family and the celebrations the Arabs who call themselves “Palestinians” had after jihadists murdered father Ehud (Udi) Fogel, mother Ruth, and 3 of their 6 children—Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and Hadas, a 3 month old infant. According to David Ha’ivri and as reported by multiple sources, the infant was decapitated. “Palestinians” in Gaza danced in the streets and passed out candies and cakes to celebrate the slaughter.

      yes, just more proof that Allah is Satan/ Baal who loves the blood of innocent children and demands ever more human sacrifices, and this causes muslims to dance with joy as these sacrifices are carried out.

      • Ann Inquirer

        There is no Allah, that pathological liar just made Allah up out of a figment of his psychotic imagination, No Allah, No Grabriel, No Revelations.

  • herb benty

    This is Islam. Don’t fall for the pretty immigrants that infest our Western Nations, they are just a “Front”. Yes, the women are in on the deception.

  • 2stroke_detroit

    I’m sure this won’t be on the evening “news”

  • Conniption Fitz

    The lib-leftists willful blindness to Islam’s atrocities is proof that decades of abortion have dehumanized our populace. Materialism, violent games and media have also contributed, as have the elected officials and judges who pass laws that enable and/or force our citizens to break God’s Commandments.

    We are a country that breeds citizens willing to murder others for iPhones, LeBron Jameses and Michael Jordans, drugs, money and who will abort/kill our own children for the sake of se xual gratification.

    • Jake-a-runi

      So, we are a country that disposes of anyone to our left by blaming them for the re-emergence of Islam, and claims the exercise of democracy is offensive to magic spirits? And everything you dislike is linked in a sinister conspiracy? I have no idea where in the world you can find to live with like-minded people.

      The lib-leftists willful blindness to Islam’s atrocities is proof that decades of abortion have dehumanized our populace.

      That doesn’t even make sense. And I reject theocracy.

      • lonzo

        Yeah don’t confront the imagine this article is based on. Just defend the left. I have no affiliation I’m just a Christian. But, you feed into the stereotype friend.

  • Anti sharia

    Muslims are animals, it’s time we started treating them as such.

    • Anamah

      Well… I love animals and believe than they must treated with good manners.
      Muslims are not animals …but Islamist, are bad intentioned and deadly beasts full of poison.
      They need to be combated before they become a plague.

      • Roha Waha

        BEFORE they become a plague ? What would you call them now ?

  • veritaseequitas

    Well, you have the Saudi Imam who accused his 5 year old daughter of adultery and then proceeded to rape her, torture her and break her body in several places until she died months later from her wounds.
    And then you have the Pakistanis who accused a 9 month old baby of terrorism.
    I mean WTF is wrong with these sh!tt! scumbags? Muslims are the worst of the worst on the entire planet.
    And the “peaceful” Muslims who stand by and do nothing about these atrocities, are just as guilty as the ones who commit them.

    • Ali Sina

      Peaceful Muslim? There is no such thing as peaceful Muslim. You probably want to say ignorant Muslim.

      There are three kinds of Muslims, 1- Terrorist Muslim, 2- Ignorant Muslim and 3- deceptive Muslims such as Zuhdi Jasser and Tarek Fatah. We should fear the latter more.

  • BobSmith101

    Islam’s “holy” documents incite countless “devout” followers to independently interpret Islamic theology and commit violence in the name of Islam. And this is what you get.

    Multiply this atrocity thousands of times – and you get what we see as Islam.

  • UCSPanther

    When they accuse Israel of doing the same thing. you know they are doing it themselves.

    • jadedcorliss

      When Boko Haram slaughters hundreds of people there is silence, when Israel shoots three people on the border there is outrage. It’s insane.

  • Elizabeth capecod

    If this photo was of Israelis or Christians holding guns to a baby, it would be front page news around the globe.

    • sammid

      Elizabeth you are so right. Muslims get a free pass to murder and pillage at will because it’s not politically correct to criticize the SOBs.

    • UCSPanther

      My thoughts exactly.

    • hyejack

      This child could very well be Armenian since Kessab was majority populated by Armenians.
      Armenians were brutally murdered by Muslim Turks in the 1915 Genocide and the west simply looks the other way because Turkey is a NATO ally and they don’t want to offend it.

      • Ann Inquirer

        More of the deadly Political Correctness

  • Dan Borden

    Wow, what a tough crowd of commentators. We should give credit to the islamic “warriors” for their bravery. Despite this infant having access to multiple toys and even some stones, the islamists held their ground and managed to subdue this vicious child.

  • popseal

    Monsters, deserving a visit from Mr. Reaper (MQ9, predator drone).

    • Drakken

      I would much prefer to have a nice little AcrLight Strike myself, the heck with subtlety.

  • 11bravo

    Evil can not hide!!

  • American1969

    My heart is broken after reading that. WTF is wrong with these people? I would call them animals, but even animals don’t act like that!
    How any leftist can defend these people is beyond me, but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. The Left worships Death: abortion, assisted suicide, eugenics.

  • Albert Darringdon

    This is so heartbreaking. Who knows what happened to that poor, innocent child?

    Jesus said we’d know whether someone is good or evil by their fruit. Islam produces ugly, bitter, poisonous fruit indeed.

  • noname

    People, PLEASE, PLEASE look online at Operation American, and, constitutional emergency. Of course, YOU WILL NOT HEAR ABOUT THIS IN THE MSM. PLEASE RESEARCH AND PASS THIS INFORMATION ON. THANK YOU, and sorry for shouting.

  • elizabeth cohen

    There need be no other descriptions of these immoral, brutal bastards. Just their words and deeds condemn them. they will pay the ultimate price for the murder of innocence “For revenge is mine saith the lord” They will pay dearly

  • Up In Arms-666
