When you hear about a suicide bomber, especially a child, how do you feel? Shocked, of course. Do you ever wonder how that young person got to the place where he or she was willing to kill himself over ideology?
This shocking video gives us a glimpse of the seeds planted into young people that prime them for shocking acts of terrorism. In celebration of "Ummah Day", a group of Muslim kids in Philadelphia were videotaped promising, “We will sacrifice our souls without hesitation;” “We will chop off their heads;” “We will lead the army of Allah;” “We will subject them to eternal torture.”
Here, Franklin Graham shares about the underground pockets of Islamic extremism right here in our country, training up young people to be terrorists.
"A video of young children being indoctrinated for radical Islam was posted on the Muslim American Society in Philadelphia’s Facebook page," warned Graham on Facebook. "The kids were saying: 'We will sacrifice our souls without hesitation;' 'We will chop off their heads;' 'We will lead the army of Allah;' 'We will subject them to eternal torture.'"
"Should this concern us?" asked Graham. "You bet it should! This is how terrorists and suicide bombers are made. The watchdog group, Middle East Media Research Institute warned, 'These are not isolated incidents; they are happening in major centers of the country–including in Pennsylvania.' Our country needs to wake up—this evil is being taught right under our noses, spreading darkness to the next generation."
What's also disturbing about this video is that it was originally posted to Facebook by the group who taught the children, the Muslim American Society (MAS) Islamic Center in Philadelphia. They were proud. Only until the video was flagged by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a watchdog group who alerted Fox News.
In the video, a girl is seen reading, "We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation. We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture."
As Graham quoted, these groups are scattered around the country. Graham has been a longstanding voice warning the nation of the threat of Islamic terrorism. Videos like this one only validate his concerns.
