ISIS terrorists are attacking Christian families, and other families as well, taking the infants, after killing their parents, and forcing them into Muslim families. This is exactly what the Ottoman Empire used to do in Eastern Europe, and also what the Muslims did in Lebanon in the Middle Ages. As we read in one report:
A Roman Catholic priest who has been helping Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities facing genocide in Iraq and Syria said Islamic State militants separate families who live in terrorist occupied land by taking newborn babies and virgin girls while killing fathers and forcing young boys to plant bombs on the streets.
Father Patrick Desbois, a Paris-based priest who for decades has been researching the Holocaust and fighting anti-Semitism through his Yahad–In Unum global humanitarian organization, has in recent years turned to helping minority victims of the IS-led genocide in Iraq and Syria, specifically the Yazidi people.
Desbois told The Christian Post in a phone interview that IS, which he noted has also killed scores of Shia Muslims and Christians, uses a “very special” strategy to carry out its decimation of entire people groups.
“They dislocate the families, they take the newborn babies, and they put them in Islamist families,” Desbois told CP, noting that the young children are trained as terrorists, and “forced to put bombs” on streets.
“The young girls who are virgins are selected by doctors and sold,” he added, referring to the terror group’s human trafficking and sex trade, which has seen many thousands of women and children sold to jihadists.
The men, on the other hand, are often shot in pits, he said, evidence for which are the many mass graves being discovered in territory newly liberated from IS’ grasp.
The priest, who is a professor at Georgetown University, explained that IS “dislocate families according to age, sexuality,” and said that “every member of the family” is used “in a special way.”
“I’ve never seen that, it’s very organized, there is no improvisation,” he added.
