The Herald reports:
A video has emerged that appears to show two young girls being embraced and kissed by their parents before leaving to complete suicide missions.
The 7-year-old girl was reportedly sent to a police station in the Syrian city of Damascus last week where explosives she was carrying were remotely detonated. Her 9-year-old sister was reportedly stopped at the Ministry of Interior before she could carry out her mission.
Chilling footage shows a man lecturing the two children about the suicide attack.
“You are not going to be afraid because you are going to the heavens, right?” he says.
“No,” one of the girls answers.
Afterwards the girls say “Allahu Akbar”.
Syrian journalists are reporting the adults in the footage are the parents of the children.
The woman is asked why she is sending her daughters to jihad even though they are so young.
“No one is young when it comes to jihad as every Muslim is supposed to participate in jihad,” she replies.
I’m trying to think of a punishment bad enough for these parents but can’t. The fact they are happy to kill their own children means that they have no empathy. They won’t be afraid of death as they are sure they are going to heaven.
Maybe have the surviving child fostered off to a atheist couple?
