A picture of a ‘babe in arms’ has been published on Twitter, depicting an infant with a gun, grenade and… allegedly the very first Islamic State birth certificate. The authenticity of the photo has not been confirmed by independent sources.

“[T]hese groups want to show they have total control of subjects and are indoctrinating them from a very young age,” Charlie Cooper of the London-based Quilliam Foundation told the Independent.

Children who happen to live on the territory controlled by the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) are used to serve the jihadist cause quite often. Photos of children dressed in military uniforms and holding all kinds of handguns has become sort of ordinary thing over the internet.

The IS is abducting and brainwashing children into joining their group, says a UN children’s representative. The organization says the militant faction is looking to “foster a new generation of supporters,” amongst young Syrians and Iraqis. The underage are even being taught to kill captives while elders are filming the barbarity in order to publish it later over the internet and scare the ‘enemies of Islam’.

On the territories occupied by the IS in Iraq and Syria, the group is striving to establish ‘real’ governmental structures, resembling the social institutions of a true sovereign state. Less than a week ago the jihadists allegedly launched a kind of public health organization dubbed Islamic State Health Service or ISHS.

Affective solicitude of the health of the IS ‘citizens’ goes hand in hand with mass murder, decapitation and chopping-off hands in full accordance of the sharia law.

The last time a staged mass murder video was made public occurred on April 19, when the IS’ media arm, Al-Furqan, released filmed and edited a short clip of the execution and beheading of some 30 Ethiopian Christians in Libya, right on the Mediterranean shore.
