ISIS is now using children to do its bidding. For the first time ever, the terror group used an American child to deliver a stark message to the president of the United States in a new propaganda video.
“My message to Trump, the puppet of the Jews: Allah promised us victory, promised you defeat,” said the boy who identified himself as “Yousef.”
Against the backdrop of the Islamic State’s de facto capital in Raqqa, Syria, Yousef went on to say that ISIS fighters are coming to America’s shores.
Adding insult to injury, Yousef suggested that his father is an American soldier.
“My father’s an American soldier who fought the mujahideen in Iraq,” said the boy in perfect English.
As disturbing as it may seem, American soldiers defecting to ISIS isn’t unheard of.
“Six of the 131 Americans charged in ISIS-related cases have military backgrounds,” reports The Daily Beast citing data from the George Washington University Program on Extremism.
Since losing Mosul, the Islamic State’s cherished capital in Iraq, ISIS has been ratcheting up its propaganda campaign in an effort to save face. But that isn’t all. President Trump’s unwavering commitment to crushing ISIS once and for all has severely disrupted the terror group’s capabilities. The new president has made the terror group look weak and vulnerable. It’s no wonder that Trump is now the primary target in ISIS’ propaganda videos. Trump is an existential threat to the terror group’s existence and ISIS knows it.
