In a move almost Hitlerian in depravity and scope, the Islamic State group has issued a fatwa ordering children with Down syndrome and other genetic abnormalities to be put to death.
The news comes via Breitbart from the blog Mosul Eye, an Iraqi activist blog that chronicles life in the city under Islamic State group rule. The blog said that at least 38 children with genetic abnormalities have been killed since Shariah judges ruled that the killings would be consistent with the Quran.
The issuing judge was allegedly a Saudi Shariah jurist named Abu Said Aljazrawi.
Mosul Eye said that any child with a disability is now at risk of being killed, going as far as to release a video showing disabled children in the area. The blog reported the “Oral Fatwa” was issued by the Shariah board of the Islamic State group and that it allowed them to “kill newborn babies with Down’s (sic) Syndrome and congenital deformities and disabled children.”
The blog also reported that most of the children were fathered by foreign fighters who married Iraqi, Syrian or Asian women.
“We recorded more than 38 confirmed cases of killing babies with congenital deformities and Down’s Syndrome, aged between one week to three months. They were killed by either lethal injection or suffocation,” Mosul Eye reported. “As if it is not enough for ISIL to kill men, women and the elderly, and now, they kill children.”
It’s worth pointing out that this is similar to Hitler’s “Aktion T4” program, a program to sterilize or murder people with disabilities during the Third Reich.
When it comes to the Nazis, everyone says “never again.” Yet, even with historic ties between Islamist fascists and the Nazi regime, and even with mounting evidence that this “JV team” is arguably the most barbarous enemy we’ve faced since World War II, President Barack Obama seems to be happy to continue channeling Neville Chamberlain.
He wants to be able to say he ended the war in Iraq. He wants to say he gave us peace in our time. And yet, all he has is the blood of dozens of helpless children and tens of thousands of dead Syrians and Iraqis on his hands.
It’s time to end appeasement and crush the Islamic State group once and for all.
