The Commentator – Raymond Ibrahim
15 December 2013 –
A widely disseminated video recently appeared of an Islamic Sunni cleric in Syria inciting Muslim schoolboys, most of whom appear to be between the ages of five-twelve, to hate and kill Christians and others.
According to a report in Arabic which has gone viral (scroll down it for video), among other things, the sheikh calls on the children to “slaughter all Christians for being infidels” and boasted that “the Christians of Syria are under continuous attack and their churches and monasteries subject to violence.”
In the video, the sheikh first talks of Islam’s egalitarianism — that it does not consider the race, nationality, or language of people, only whether they have submitted to Islam by becoming Muslims or not, adding, “because the entire world is for Allah.”
He then tells the children that “Islam uplifts the Muslims and debases the non-Muslims,” while raising one hand, symbolic of Islam, and lowering the other, symbolic of all non-Islam, to drive the point home to his young audience.
