Jihadi babies are the focus of an ISIS booklet designed to teach mothers how to raise future Islamic State fighters. Fostering future ISIS fighters to keep the caliphate strong appears to be the primary task assigned to mothers living in the Middle East regions controlled by the group.
The “Sister’s Role in Jihad” booklet tells ISIS mothers that the “most important” manner in which they can contribute to the Islamic State caliphate is to indoctrinate children with the militant group’s message from a very young age.
“Don’t wait until they are seven to start, for it may be too late by then,” the how to raise jihadi babies booklet reportedly states.
The list of instructions from the “Sister’s Role in Jihad” booklet appeared online on ISIS social media networking accounts. The guidelines in the Islamic State pamphlet have been highlighted by Memri – a group which monitors the activities of ISIS and is currently focusing on the treatment of caliphate children. Memri Executive Director Steven Stalinsky said that in 2015, there will be a “marked increase in the effort to indoctrinate the next generation of fighters.”
Stalinsky also said, “No matter what happens in Iraq and Syria in the near future, the next generation – the children of Baghdadi and grandchildren of bin Laden – have already been brainwashed to hate the West and to strive for jihad and martyrdom.”
The how to raise jihadi babies booklet reportedly instructs mothers to expose young children to jihadist websites with graphic content and to read the youngsters stories about ISIS militants at bedtimes. ISIS youth are reportedly encouraged to play with toy guns at incredibly young ages. In October, posts to Twitter by alleged ISIS jihadists showcased photos of “ISIS cubs” as they graduated from the “School of Jihad.” According to Memri, the Islamic State wants folks in the West to know that the jihadi babies indoctrination is occurring.
“They [children] have been trained on the battlefield and know how to create bombs and suicide belts and to behead and crucify the innocent. This is something we must be prepared for and understand,” Stalinsky concluded.
The ISIS jihadi babies booklet also reportedly states that Islamic State children should not be permitted to watch television because it “mostly teaches shamelessness, anarchy, and random violence.”
ISIS children should be engaged in sports and games, such as darts, so both their aim and fitness levels improve. Camping outings in order to teach outdoor survival skills are also reportedly encouraged by ISIS. When practicing target shooting with toy guns, parents should “make it very clear who their target should be and who their target should not be,” the “Sister’s Role in Jihad” book reportedly instructs.
