A young boy named Muhammad in Iraq was forcefully seized from his parents to join their child army. ISIS also forced him and other young men to watch crucifixions, beheadings, stonings, and other executions. In one horrific setting, a young man was taken for not observing Ramadan, and they crucified him for three days. As the young man witnessed:
We saw a young man who did not fast for Ramadan, so they crucified him for three days, and we saw a woman being stoned [to death] because she committed adultery.
The young boy said that ISIS went into their mosque as they were studying Islam and recruited them. The boy’s father did not permit him, but ISIS agents told him that if he did not allow them to take the boy, that they would cut his head off. Their words were:
if you prevent Mohammed from coming to the camp, we will cut off your head,
The boy explained his cruel training experience:
For 30 days we woke up and jogged, had breakfast, then learned the Quran and the hadith of the prophet… Then we took courses on weapons, Kalashnikovs and other light military stuff. … They used to bring young [kids] to the camp to lash them,” Mohammed says. “When we go to the mosque, they order us to come the next day at a specific time and place to [watch] heads cut off, lashings or stonings.
Muhammad’s father further explained his worries:
He is only a child, they might make him a suicide bomber and [convince him] that will be in paradise and stuff like that How can a child like that be convinced? Where is the conviction in that? He is a child, it’s not possible… He just saw his friends and kids his age went to the camp, so he wanted to go with them for entertainment. They thought war and guns were entertainment.
Remember the story of this crucifixion the next time the president hosts a “Ramadan dinner” in the WhiteHouse.
