As horrible and evil as decapitating journalists, drowning and burning alive enemy combatants, and throwing gays off buildings is, there’s something altogether monstrous about using explosives to extinguish the life of an infant. It exposes an ideology that is both sickening and impossible to comprehend at the same time. And yet, that’s exactly what ISIS radicals reportedly did mere days ago, obviously showing no remorse for a crime that ranks among the worst I've ever read about (via The Clarion Project):
In one of its cruelest acts to date, Islamic State reportedly blew up a baby to show members how to handle explosives.
The incredible incident took place in Diyala Province on July 10, according to provincial Security Committee Chairman Sadiq el-Husseini. He detailed the event to the local Arabic-language A-Sumeriah News.
The baby’s father was apparently executed just weeks ago, after he allegedly took part in the killing of an Islamic State member.
“The organization booby trapped the baby in front of dozens of armed ISIS men and then detonated it from afar,” Sadiq el-Husseini said. The rigging of the baby and its detonation was a training exercise of ISIS to teach its people booby-trapping techniques.
Naturally, these baby killers couldn’t practice rigging explosives without killing a weak and defenseless infant. Human life — especially if it is innocent human life — is of no matter or consequence to these savages. Presumably, too, the child was not arbitrarily killed, but punished for the sins of his/her father — i.e., killing an ISIS fighter. But the baby, of course, had nothing to do with what happened. Which makes such an orchestrated, remorseless execution all the more grotesque and disgusting.
