Islamic State (ISIS) is openly recruiting jihadists to target Christians in the West and this latest news emerged after Belgian police arrested the teenage son of a radical Imam in the city of Verviers, Barnabas Aid reported on Friday.
Barnabas Aid profiled the news of the teenager that was arrested after a video emerged of him walking the city’s streets cursing Christians in Arabic and calling for the murder of Christians.
The teenager reportedly told investigators that Islamic State (ISIS) is currently recruiting jihadists a) to target Christians, b) to carry out massacres in two shopping centers with chainsaws (an execution method ISIS has recently used in Iraq) and c) to attack a Belgian imam who was deemed “not radical enough”.
As noted by the Clarion Project, an extremism watchdog group, in the magazine, in an issue entitled “Breaking the Cross,” ISIS presented an “extended rebuttal of Christian and Jewish theology which sets forth the arguments to believe in Islam.”
The arrest follows specific calls in IS’s English language magazine Dabiq in August for attacks on Christians in the West. It provides further evidence that IS’s policy of targeting Christians in the parts of Iraq, Syria and Libya that it controls is now being extended to Europe.
The August edition of Dabiq contained a series of lengthy polemics against Christians, one called “Why we hate you” and another “Break the cross”. The latter ended by inviting (dawah) Christians to embrace Islam and warning them that if they did not that its fight against Christians will continue until they are defeated and either killed or accept jizyah.
According to the Assyrian International News Agency, a report from the New York Times in September 2014, just three months following the creation of the Islamic State, revealed that Iraqi Christians had described their plight in the region as “slow-motion genocide.”
This latest report comes on the heels of a report that as the persecution of Christians by ISIS continues and now 15 years later after 9/11, western governments have continued to ignore massive escalation in persecution of Christians.
Worse yet, the US supported Syrian rebel group beheaded a young 11-year-old boy in a graphic video in the back of a pick-up truck, according to a report by the Clarion Project.
