New Islamic State, ISIS, video depicts boy threatening America, more on Khaled Sharrouf

 Islamic extremists speak for themselves in new videos from VICE Media where a pre-teen boy threatens America, promises car bombings and other attacks to divide the U.S.

Islamic State boy in video threatens US America“I swear to Allah we will divide America in two. And we’ll destroy the enemies of the religion of them all, all who fight the Islamic State. We promise car bombs and explosives,” the boy said in the segment below.

The Islamic State, IS (formerly ISIS and ISIL) spokesman Abu Mosa has also spoken out against the United States in a video. “We will humiliate [the Americans] everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”

The terrorist organization has expanded its influence to children, though they confess they are too young to fight. A photo of a 7-year-old holding a severed head recently circulated the internet, prompting international outrage. The child is the son of IS terrorist Khaled Sharrouf. He captioned the photo, “That’s my boy.”

According to a report in The Australian newspaper, the horrifying image was posted on Twitter by the proud father showing the boy struggling to hold up a severed head with both arms. Sharrouf, a convicted terrorist who fled to Syria last year and is now an Islamic fighter, is believed to be travelling with his family.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the image was evidence of the “hideous atrocities” such groups are capable of.

“We see more and more evidence of just how barbaric this particular entity is,” Abbott said while in the Netherlands.

John Kerry responded that the image was “one of the most disturbing, stomach-turning, grotesque photographs ever displayed. That child should be in school; that child should be out learning about the future; that child should be playing with other kids, not holding a severed head and out in the field of combat.”

VICE News describes IS as “a hardline Sunni jihadist group that formerly had ties to al Qaeda” which “has announced its intention to reestablish the caliphate and has declared its leader, the shadowy Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the caliph.”

Here is the rest of their statement:

The lightning advances the Islamic State made across Syria and Iraq in June shocked the world. But it’s not just the group’s military victories that have garnered attention — it’s also the pace with which its members have begun to carve out a viable state.

Flush with cash and US weapons seized during its advances in Iraq, the Islamic State’s expansion shows no sign of slowing down. In the first week of August alone, Islamic State fighters have taken over new areas in northern Iraq, encroaching on Kurdish territory and sending Christians and other minorities fleeing as reports of massacres emerged.

VICE News reporter Medyan Dairieh spent three weeks embedded with the Islamic State, gaining unprecedented access to the group in Iraq and Syria as the first and only journalist to document its inner workings.
