This is a 40 minute video report by a VICE News reporter embedded with the Islamic State for three weeks. Be aware there are a few (and brief) graphic images–headless corpses (6:27 to 6:39), a crucified man (27:52 – 28:06). Even more chilling is the footage showing the recruitment and indoctrination of children.

We are living in a joy that I can’t describe.

These words were spoken by an IS member who operates a “preaching van”. He was parked by the Euprhates River where several young boys were swimming. He smilingly asked a 7-yr old boy,

What do you want to be, a jihadist or to execute a martyrdom [suicide] operation?

The boy is his son.

At a celebration for the establishment of the Caliphate, a celebrant addresses the crowd:

I noticed that only children say hello to us and they send kisses from far away…old people look at us with a frightened look.

This is a close look at pure evil and it is frightening.

    So unnecessary..

    Wow, Pat_S. We won’t be seeing this on the news, that is for sure.
    What you called evil (and it is), another man calls religion. As I watched this, another word came to mind, reprobate.

    Nevertheless, my faith as a Christian tells me (and I believe it as much as the IS Muslims believe in Sharia law) Good will overcome evil.

      So true Kitten, Jesus predicted “whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God.”(John 16:2) and the the world will hate us but ” be of good cheer,I have overcome the world.”(John 16:33).

  3. I believe the speaker being referred to with the “boy” as his son, is the American muslim.. He is traveling in ME with his family. How’d you like that- murdering being as their inheritance. Wow.

    Time for an old fashion turkey shoot in that place. It will take rough men to deal with these boys as they should be dealt with. But our CO is a spineless jelly fish or he is an ISIS sympathizer. The later is probably correct. BO loves violent revolution for the collective just like Bill Ayers. This is their game. This is their religion. They are true believers, everyone else is in the way. They want to make heaven on earth except their heaven is really hell.

    Like the so-called Palestinians, the children in the film are conditioned to be killers. No chance for peace, unless they cease to exist.
