Muslim Cleric Incites Children to ‘Slaughter’ Christians and Alawites in Syria

Print Friendly

A 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.

An indoctrination that knows no bounds

According to a report in Arabic (scroll down for video), among other things, the sheikh calls on the children to “slaughter all Christians for being infidels” and that he 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.

Next the sheikh asked the children, “Now, the crusaders, that is, the Christians, are they Muslims or infidels?” A few boys answer, “infidels.”

He agreed, pointing out that various Koran verses say that whoever says Jesus is the son of God (that is, Allah) or that he is God is an infidel (see Koran 5:73 and 5:17).

To clarify the point to those children unable to understand all this “theological” talk, the cleric made the sign of the cross, saying “Christians are they who do this.”

He then moved on to the Alawites, the Shia sect of President Bashar Assad, and called on the children to slaughter anyone belonging to them—making a knife-slitting motion with his hand across his neck—because they too are infidels.

The sheikh further told the children in attendance that what they are being taught in schools—that Christians and Alawites are their “brothers” and they are all one nation—is false and a lie against Islam. This would be a reference to the highly divisive Islamic doctrine of loyalty and enmity, which commands Muslims to hate all non-Muslims—even if they are married to them.

As for the school text books that the boys are taught from—which he said teach all Syrians to treat each other as “brothers” and as “one nation,” regardless of religion—these he called “poisonous,” since “these teachings contradict the law [Sharia] of Allah.”

Finally, while confirming that some non-Muslims have “rights” under Islam—a reference to third-class dhimmi status—he called on the children never to show any love for Christians or Alawites, even if they are their neighbors.

Such is the unswerving nature of the “rebels” and “opposition” that the U.S. government is supporting.

    The prophecies of Scripture are coming closer to fruition every day. Christians need to realize that Christ NEVER suggested we lie down and become a doormat for the filthy hordes of islam. Fighting back against those who would slaughter you is not against the Lord. If would-be robbers broke into your house at night and were about to kill your kids, would you shoot them if you had a gun in your hand? The same should be true of ANYONE who wishes to persecute you for your faith. Submitting to the will of tyrants, and allowing them to slit your and your family member’s throats without putting up a struggle is NOT the will of God, your Father.

    Jesus said “If anyone causes one of these little ones to disbelieve in me, it would be better for him to have a millstone tied to him, and him be thrown into the sea.”

    No less condign would be for him to be castrated and given a Serbian necktie.
