ISIS is recruiting boys as young as ten to join their ranks, and they are also forcing children to watch their beheadings, amputations, and executions. According to a recent UN report:
In areas of Syria under ISIS control, particularly in the north and northeast of the country, Fridays are regularly marked by executions, amputations and lashings in public squares… Civilians, including children, are urged to watch. Bodies of those killed are placed on display for several days, terrorizing the local population … Women have been lashed for not abiding by ISIS’s dress code. In Ar-Raqqah, children as young as 10 are being recruited and trained at ISIS camps
ISIS has all the traits of a cult, it is a much larger and more expanded version of the Branch Davidians of Waco, who also put children through para-military training.
All of this sort of training and exposing to violence will only make these very children into cruel killers. This is why the Hebrews, by the hand of God, slaughtered even the children:
When Sihon and all his army came out to meet us in battle at Jahaz, the Lord our God delivered him over to us and we struck him down, together with his sons and his whole army. At that time we took all his towns and completely destroyed them—men, women and children. We left no survivors. (Deut. 2:34)
