Islamic State jihadists have reportedly ordered the execution of children who are mentally or physically disabled — an horrific replay of the Nazi atrocities that murdered thousands of children with disabilities during WWII.
In a Facebook post,
the Iraqi activist group Mosel Eye released a video and reported a "fatwa" had been issued on the innocents.
Sharia judges have allegedly ruled ISIS followers are authorized to "kill newborn babies with Down Syndrome or congenital deformities and disabled children," the group writes, naming one of the judges as a Saudi, Abu Said Aljazrawi.
Already more than 38 infants born with deformities and Down's syndrome have allegedly been killed either by lethal injection or suffocation in the ISIS strongholds in Syria and in Mosul, in northern Iraq, according to Mosul Eye, which added that victims were primarily children of foreign fighters who married Iraqi, Syrian and Asian women.
ISIS has been linked to other atrocities against children, including using children — including, according to the British newspaper Independent
, those with mental health problems — as suicide bombers and human shields.
The radical Islamic terrorist group first shocked the world with its brutal videotaped beheadings
of hostages, and its callous public murders of homosexuals
, including those who were tossed off rooftops.
"Through monitoring and following the death incidents of children with Down's Syndrome and congenital deformities, we were able to learn that the Shar'i Board of ISIL issued an 'Oral Fatwa' to its members authorizing them to 'kill newborn babies with Down's Syndrome and congenital deformities and disabled children," Mosul Eye reports.
"As if it is not enough for ISIL to kill men, women and the elderly, and now, they kill children."
Nazi Germany followed a similarly heinous tack during WWII, killing disabled children they determined to be a burden on the state, the London-based newspaper Daily Mail
At least 5,000 people aged under 16 were murdered during the regime of Adolph Hitler, who also authorized special children's wards to euthanize those who were severely mentally and physically handicapped, the Daily Mail reports.
