A preview of parts of Europe in 15-20 years
This isn't about Syria. Or Iraq.
Think of the scenes we're seeing now as a preview of parts of Europe in 15-20 years. 30 years at the latest. The massacres, the suicide bombings, the inept multicultural armies and police forces crumbling in the face of Jihadists and the child soldiers and rape camps.
For now the Muslim settlers are traveling from Europe back to their homelands to fight. But that's Phase 1. We're already gotten previews of Phase 2 with a beheading, a bombing here and there in Europe.
But those are just previews. The true horror of the Jihad is coming.
Clutching an AK-47 and pointing to the sky, this 13-year-old schoolboy is believed to be ISIS' youngest jihadist and has joined a 5,000-strong army of European teenagers in Syria.
Younes Abaaoud, from Belgium, followed his older brother to the front line and is believed be among dozens of child-fighters in the war zone from Europe.
A series of images of the schoolboy posing with various weapons came weeks after the seven-year-old son of Australian terrorist Khaled Sharrouf was pictured in Syria holding a decapitated head.
Belgium's media has claimed they are the sons of Omar, a Moroccan shopkeeper who moved to the European country around 40 years ago.
Which is to say they're Sunni Moroccan Muslim settlers in Belgium. And if they come back, they'll have battlefield training and experience which they'll put to use building an Islamic State in Belgium.
