A new video released by an Islamic State-run media outlet provides in depth detail into how the jihadi organization is brainwashing and training young children to become the next wave of jihadis who will help "conquer Damascus, Baghdad, Jerusalem, Mecca, Al-Medina, Dabiq, Rome and Andalusia."
The video, which was posted and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, features a narrator who tours an IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) "sharia institution" in the Syrian town of Deir ez-Zor.

A Yazidi mother and her son have detailed their community's horrific encounter with the brutal Islamic State terrorist group, and described how the jihadis conquered their homeland in Iraq in 2014 and heinously beheaded children.
CNS News reports that the unnamed Yazidi woman and her eight children appeared in a video testimony published by the Yezidi Human Rights Organization and produced by Dr. Hawar Moradi, a medical doctor who has worked at a number of displacement camps in northern Iraq.
As IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) captured Yazidi territories in northern Iraq in August of 2014, the mother recalls the panic and urgency to flee the area that the Yazidis felt. Although thousands of Yazidi families are now living in displacement camps in Kurdistan, not all Yazidis were able to escape the wrath of IS. more >>

The holy pilgrimage known as the Hajj has reached its final stages as more than 1.5 million devotees gathered at Mount Arafat to offer prayers and to hear the Quran being recited. Muslims in unprecedented numbers formed at the site starting at sunrise.
Sad news was also disseminated to the people who were gathered. Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh, Saudi Arabia's top cleric, will not be able to deliver the Hajj sermon because of health reasons. This is the first time that it happened in 35 years that Aziz al-Sheikh served as a cleric. The traditional sermon is one of the highlights of the Hajj.
Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh also declared in a statement that Iranians were not considered Muslims. This sparked comments from the supreme leader of Iraq Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who made negative remarks about how Saudi Arabia manages the Hajj. more >>
