* Typical. When child mujaheddins kill and get killed in the cause of Allah they’re ‘martyrs’, of course! Its not only that their whole tribe is proud of them, but they also parade their dead bodies around and produce videos to recruit more. Its only a problem when the kuffars take them prisoner on the battlefield and take them to Gitmo, that the whole ummah Â cries crocodile tears Â and whole armies of shysters and apologists come crawling out from under their rocks along with the usual suspects from ‘human rights’ organizations who whine about ‘gulag’ and ‘torture’. Does your heart bleed yet?
The apparently lifeless body of the child, an Uzbek boy younger than 11, is the focus of the grisly half-hour video by the Islamic Jihad Union â€” a radical Uzbek group practically indistinguishable from Osama Bin Laden’s network, according toU.S. officials.
“They couldn’t find doctors, and under these conditions it wasn’t possible to treat his wound. So, our young mujahid, Abd al-Rahim, reached martyrdom,” the narrator says as the camera pans over the dead boy’s face shrouded in a white cloth.
The video was obtained from the terrorism research serviceÂ SITE Intelligence Group.
The ghastly film follows Abd al-Rahim and a dozen young boys in camouflage shirts and black headbands reading “There is no God but Allah” as they train with rocket-propelled grenades, pistols and Kalashnikov rifles.
The dead boy was “a translator between the native fighters and the mujahideen,” the video says. Al Qaeda is littered with Uzbeks who marry into local Pashtun clans for protection. Many were slaughtered last year by their Pashtun hosts for abusing women, sources have said.
Last week, a boy in a suicide vest killed himself and two Afghan soldiers inHelmand province. In early June, NATO troops “caught two IED trigger persons who were later released due to their age, ten and under,” saidÂ Army 1st Lt. Nathan Perry.
In May, Pakistani troops raided a compound they claimed was used to train kids as young as nine for suicide bombings in Afghanistan. But a U.S. special operations document referred to the army raid as a “ruse.”
