Instead of teaching their kids to play basketball or soccer or whatever it is they play in the Middle-East, or taking them camping for a little fishing, Muslim fathers are bonding with their boys by dragging them to Syria for a little jihad.
This Saudi dad absconded with his two boys- 11-year-old Abed al-Shayeq and his 10-year-old brother Ahmed- to join the Islamist State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Syria after a fight with his estranged wife. Daddy texted their mommy after he slipped into Syria through Turkey calling them "birds in paradise", a euphemism for "martyred" kids. They of course will “receive the necessary training before being sent to the battlefield” according to ISIS social media accounts. Which of course means, death.
Then there's this model dad. Wanted Australian terrorist Khaled Sharrouf took his boys to Syria last year to join ISIS, and recently posted to his Twitter account a photo of his 7-year-old proudly holding the decapitated head of a Syrian soldier by the hair. The caption: "That's my boy." Sharrouf's brother, who lives in Australia, thinks people should just forget about the photo. Let's hope Australian authorities are keeping an eye on the bro.
That's Sharrouf with his kiddies.
You're going to have to google for the graphic photos.
