A new video by the Islamic State terror group titled "To the Sons of Jews" released on Thursday shows six of its child soldiers murdering a group of captured Syrian security forces.
AFP reported that the video is part of the terror group's "Cubs of the Caliphate" program, and shows dozens of boys around 10 years of age studying Islamic texts and learning hand-to-hand combat.
Six of the young boys are then chosen by an instructor to execute a group of six Syrian security forces. Five of the men are shot to death, while one guard has his throat slit. more >>
WASHINGTON — Deadly terrorist attacks like the one in Paris last month and the one in California on Wednesday are indications that a third world war is on the horizon, the Vicar of Baghdad argued Thursday.
Canon Andrew White, who was the only Anglican Vicar in Iraq when the Islamic State terrorist organization rose to power in Iraq and Syria, spoke at a lunch discussion hosted by the Washington-based Institute on Religion & Democracy and explained that Muslims, Christians and Jews need to work together to support the persecuted refugee communities in the Middle East and combat extremist ideologies that are causing society to "fall apart."
In the wake of Islamic State's attacks in Paris that killed over 130 civilians and injured over 350 others in November, terror struck in the United States on Wednesday when two gunmen, one of whom was believed to have been in contact with domestic and international Islamic extremists, shot up a social services building in San Bernardino, California, and killed 14 people and injured 21. more >>

A Jordan-based priest warned that Christian refugees from Iraq and Syria are being discriminated against due to Western policies, and at the same time are being "eliminated" by the Islamic State terror group.
Father Khalil Jaar, of the Messengers of Peace Association, argued that Christians are not only being persecuted by IS, but they are also being discriminated against by Western governments who are only taking in refugees from the main designated camps.
The problem with that is that many Christians, fearing attacks from Muslim extremists, refuse to enter the camps, which leaves them out of the circle of those receiving help. more >>

Japanese police reported at least 12 incidents of wrecked wooden boats since October, which have carried on board as many as 22 dead bodies – including five skulls.

A Maryland veterans memorial with a large cross is constitutional, a federal court ruled.
U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow ruled Monday that the Bladensburg World War I Veterans Memorial could include a forty-foot tall Latin cross.
In her decision, Chasanow concluded that the Bladensburg cross was constitutional since it passed the legal precedent of not having an exclusively religious purpose. more >>
