'Worse than Nazis': ISIS allows fighters to kill children with Down Syndrome [Excerpt]
Just when we thought members of the terrorist group Islamic State could not get any more ruthless and heartless, the jihadist organization reportedly recently allowed its members to kill children with the genetic disorder Down syndrome.
Citing Iraqi activist blog Mosul Eye, [it was reported] that a sharia judge named Abu Said Aljazrawi, has issued an oral "fatwa," or a common law opinion, authorizing ISIS jihadist members to eliminate infants with Down syndrome and other congenital deformities. On its Facebook page, Mosul Eye reported that the executions of children with disabilities are being carried out in ISIS strongholds in Syria and the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.
"As if it is not enough for ISIL to kill men, women and the elderly, and now, they kill children," the group stated on its social media account.
The activist group, which has reliably reported on incidents in areas occupied by the ISIS in the past, even warned that any child with a disability is now at risk of being killed by ISIS militants. This order is very similar to the one carried out by the Nazis during the World War II period, perceiving disabled children as "burden on the state."
Mosul Eye even claimed that it has so far monitored more than 38 incidents of infanticide committed by the ISIS so far. "We recorded more than 38 confirmed cases of killing babies with congenital deformities and Down's Syndrome, aged between one week to three months. They were killed by either lethel injection or suffocation," the activist group reported.
It added that most of the children with congenital deformities killed by the Islamic State militants were offspring of foreign fighters who married Iraqi, Syrian and Asian women.
Jane Oakley, a British woman who is a mother of two kids with special needs, could not help but express on Facebook her sadness and rage due to the ISIS' recent actions against innocent children.
"I have just shed tears for these babies. I have two children with special needs, my heart is breaking. They are worse than Nazis," she lamented.
