New ISIS Recruitment Video Features White Children from Bosnia
The jihadist terror group Islamic State, formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), have released a new video showcasing blonde Bosnian Muslim children, who are made to chant "Allahu Akbar" and wave the ISIS flag. The video is the latest in a string of "multicultural" ISIS efforts aimed at showcasing the apparent racial diversity of those allying with the terrorist effort.
The kids in the video appear to be between four and seven-years-old. The cameraman attempted to get two little girls to chant, but they did not say anything.
Earlier this week, ISIS released a recruitment video aimed at Canada, using stereotypes to rein the men into its terrorism web. The video starred Andre Poulin, who led a very comfortable life. He enjoyed hockey, fishing, and hunting. He was not born into Islam, but later converted and left Canada for Syria because he could not practice his faith around non-Muslims. He died while fighting in Syria. YouTube removed the video, however, which showed Poulin's death.
On July 11, ISIS said it wanted to capture Spain, which it considers its forefathers' home. The men in the video, who are not named, speak in Spanish. A video released on June 30 starred Chilean jihadist Abu Safiyya as he toured the border of Iraq and Syria. He showed off trophies captured by ISIS, such as Iraqi uniforms.
In one video, three men, who claim to be British, appeal to Western Muslims to drop their lavish lifestyle and join their brothers in jihad. According to The Guardian, around 400 British nationals are fighting in Syria.
One race is notably missing from most recruitment videos: black Muslims. Boko Haram, the notorious terrorist group in Nigeria responsible for kidnapping hundreds of Christian girls, aligns itself with ISIS, but there is not a black ISIS member or a recruitment video aimed at the race. Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau released a 16-minute video that praised ISIS, al-Qaeda, and the Taliban and asked Allah to protect them. The men mock the #BringBackOurGirls campaign and carry an ISIS flag. Al-Shabaab is another Islamic terrorist sect in Africa and based in Somalia. They claimed responsibility for an attack on Westgate Mall in Kenya, which lasted three days.
