Eritrean-born Mebrehtom Abrha, 25, stalked the vulnerable virgin for 10 minutes as she walked through Liverpool city centre to her boyfriend’s house at 6am last July 19.
Liverpool Crown Court heard he dragged her off the pavement and into a grassy area before raping her twice in a harrowing four-minute ordeal.
The terrifying attack left the devout Christian “angry at God” and fearing she had contracted HIV, an appalled judge was told.
Abrha, who lived in Liverpool before fleeing to Birmingham, was arrested following a BBC Crimewatch appeal on October 12.
Today he started an extended sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment with a further five years on licence as his victim told the court: “I felt ashamed, dirty and unclean.
“Going to church has always been in an important part of my life but since the attack I was not able to go to church for many months.
“I was angry at God and I was angry at myself for feeling this way.”
The victim also admitted the attack caused her to end her relationship with her boyfriend, adding: “I have lost any desire to do anything in my life.
“I feel terrified in the shower. I get the feeling that someone is going to get me and I start to panic.”
The victim – who cannot be named for legal reasons – had been out clubbing on Saturday July 18 last year and agreed to meet her boyfriend the following morning.
Prosecutor David McLachlan told the court she could not get a taxi so opted to walk the mile-and-a-half route.
Despite warnings to not cut through the park from her boyfriend, she did – and was confronted by the East African man who dragged her off into a wooded area nearby.
He then subjected her to a horrific attack, ripping open her dress before raping her and “chillingly” walking away.
Afterwards the woman – covered in dirt and with injuries to her back and neck – ran to her boyfriend’s house and he raised the alarm.
Michael O’Brien, defending Abhra, read out part of a letter of apology from his client, which went: “This was an un-Christian act and I did a horrible thing to this woman. I ask for forgiveness.”
Ahbra was granted asylum for five years in June 2014 after claiming he was forced to flee his native country after being conscripted to the Eritrean army aged 18.
Ahbra, who has no previous convictions and spoke through a Tigrignan interpreter, claimed he had no memory of the attack as he was too inebriated.
Ahbra held his hand to his eyes as David Aubrey QC sentenced him before he made the sign of the cross as he was led down in to custody.
Judge Aubrey told him: “You watched her, you followed her, pursued her, threatened her and raped her before, somewhat chillingly, walking away calmly.
“I cannot ignore the tragic irony of this case that you attacked her next to a church.”
Afterwards Merseyside Police Det Insp Terry Davies said: “There is no doubt that this had had a significant impact on his young victim, who will now have to live with this for the rest of her life.”

It’s the latest in a spate of reported sex attacks in the country which has been rocked by a wave of assaults in Cologne.
Two 14-year-old boys and a 21-year-old man have been held in Weil am Rhein, a small town near the Swiss and German borders, for the suspected rape of a 14 and 15-year-old girl.
The girls were allegedly held for several hours and gang-raped after going to a New Year’s Eve party at the home of a 21-year-old man in the village of Friedlingen.
The arrests only emerged last night, despite the suspects being in custody for several days. Prosecutors say they kept tightlipped to protect the victims’ identities.
Cops are still searching for a fourth suspect thought to be the man’s 15-year-old brother.
Police said the culprits are not asylum seekers. The 21-year-old and his brother are German citizens, while the 14-year-old boys live in Switzerland and the Netherlands.
Detectives have said they do not believe the incident is connected to the sickening night of sexual attacks in Cologne.
At least 120 women reported being robbed, threatened or sexually molested at New Year celebrations outside the city’s cathedral.
In addition there have also been reports of attacks on women across the country.
More than 50 criminal complaints filed in the northern city of Hamburg, 39 of them for sexual assault. Witnesses described gangs of men who “hunted” their victims outside the nightclubs of the city’s Reeperbahn.
One victim said: “I was alone and suddenly I realised men were handling me.
“I pushed away the hands and tried to scream. But when one hand went the next had already come. I felt helpless.”
Similar incidents have taken place in Dusseldorf, which have been described as those in Cologne.
Seven criminal complaints of sexual assault are being investigated by Frankfurt Police, including three men who say they were surrounded by a group of 10 men and “massively” groped.
Two 18-year-old women were surrounded and groped by a group of around 15 men in Stuttgart, and later discovered their mobile phones had been stolen.
Police described the suspects as of “Arab appearance”. Women have reported sexual harassment on the streets of Bielefeld and in a nightclub by a group of around 150 men described as of “North African appearance”.
It comes as it emerged that some of the men involved in the horrific Cologne sex attacks claimed to be Syrian refugees.

“A seven year old girl was stabbed to death in an apartment in Upplands-Bro in northern Stockholm on 25 July this year by a 36 year old man, Daniel Gebru. Ten months earlier Gebru arrived as a welfare of migrant from Eritrea to Sweden. …
Gebru has not been able to give any concrete reasons for why he cut the throat of the seven-year girl in the bathroom of her home. He had previously been living in the apartment. What he did there on that day is unclear because according to some data he was not living there anymore. As the Court notes, however, he did live in the apartment when the murder was committed but Gebru had failed to pay rent.
Gebru has stated that he had intended to take his own life but for unknown reasons instead stabbed the girl to death.”
Here is the ‘Original’ article [in Swedish] and below is the Complete English Translation of the original article using “Google Translate.”
Asylum seekers convicted of knife murder of seven year old girl
Bloody knife 8473 MURDER
Additional brutal knife murder committed by an Eritrean asylum-seekers were given a few days ago its legal resolution. A seven year old girl was stabbed to death in an apartment in Upplands-Bro in northern Stockholm on 25 July this year of a 36 year old man, Daniel Gebru, as ten months earlier arrived as the welfare of migrants to Sweden from Eritrea.
Gebru sentenced to psychiatric care with special discharge review and be expelled indefinitely after already served and care. However, it is unclear whether the deportation will be executed, this is because the Migration Board believes that human rights are infringed in a way in Eritrea that allows no one can be deported there. Gebru will thus probably remain in Sweden after already served and care. There is also no minimum retention Gebru must be nurtured. If he is deemed to have frisknat to, he can be released after a very short time.
As with the brutal knife murder of IKEA in Västerås in August this year, including those committed by an Eritrean asylum seeker, has the offender as the explanation for the crime stated mental disorder related to alleged harsh conditions in their home country and that migrants who should have led to his suffering by hallucinations and paranoia.
Gebru has not been able to give any other more concrete reasons for why he cut the throat of the seven-year girl in the bathroom of her home. He had previously been inherent in the apartment. What he did there on that day is unclear because according to some data was not living there anymore. As the Court notes, however, he should have lived in the apartment when the murder was committed but have failed to pay the rent.
Gebru has stated that he had intended to take his own life but for unknown reasons instead stabbed the girl to death. He inflicted but also themselves afterwards a cutting injury. The retrospective self-inflicted injury could of course have been a way to hide the real motive for the crime against the girl, but the court chose to go on the defense line in this part, that the murder was committed in a state of mental confusion and no real motive to the girl or To cover up another crime against the girl.
Gebru sentenced Therefore – and because he exposed the girl to “unnecessary suffering” in connection with the murder – not formally of murder, but of manslaughter and not to prison but to care. However the court did not go so far as to completely absolve Gebru from liability for the actions, as claimed by the defense lawyers. The girl’s parents are pleased that the man convicted but dissatisfied with the crime of was not murder. Gebru must also pay compensation to the parents of 182 860 SEK and a further 61 705 paid to the estate.
The case provides a further alarm about the irresponsibility with which asylum applications are dealt with in Sweden, how mentally unstable people are allowed to reside freely in society and what consequences this may have. Missing ID checks, sloppy investigations of asylum seekers ‘background in the home country and naive faith in the asylum seekers’ own oral evidence allows no one knows what sort of people who are released into our country. It can be anything from people with actual refugee status through the economic welfare of migrants to serious criminals and terrorists.
Nor does this case – as one of the responsible politicians and other opinion leaders should be able to expect – led the public debate on security in society severely eroded due to serious deficiencies in the asylum reception. Few have the courage enough to step outside of the politically correct view corridor and ask themselves where the limits to how many in Sweden we are prepared to let murdered, abused, raped, mugged, robbed, deceived and subjected to other serious crimes without the conduct of the mass immigration policy is questioned.
Missile Guidance Systems, Human-less Auto-Pilot Vehicles for Suicide-Bombing and Heat Signature Counter-Measures are just the Beginning of what Islamic State Scientists are Developing..
by, Stuart Ramsay | Sky News | h/t Glenn Beck and Sharona Schwartz
Terror group Islamic State is employing scientists and weapons experts to train jihadists to carry out sophisticated “spectacular” attacks in Europe, while also modifying weapons systems capable of targeting passenger jets and military aircraft.
From a “jihadi university” in the Syrian city of Raqqa, the scientists have stunned western weapons experts by producing a homemade thermal battery for surface-to-air missiles.
It had been regarded as a virtually impossible feat for terror groups working without a military infrastructure.
But footage exclusively obtained by Sky News shows that IS can now recommission thousands of missiles assumed by western governments to have been redundant through old age.
NOTE: This is an INTERNAL ISIS Training Video that was NOT meant to be distributed publicly.
Video courtesy of: Sky News
Heat-seeking warheads can be used to attack passenger and military aircraft. They are 99% accurate once locked on.
For decades terror groups, including the IRA, had these weapons but storing them and maintaining the thermal battery – a key component to the warhead – was very difficult.
It seems that IS scientists have got round the problem, and that revelation will shock the world of international security.
The IS research and development team has produced fully working remote controlled cars to act as mobile bombs, while they have fitted the cars with “drivers”; mannequins with self-regulating thermostats to produce the heat signature of humans, allowing the car bombs to evade sophisticated scanning machines that protect military and government buildings in the West.
The group trained fighters from a variety of countries to carry out attacks and to train more jihadists in their own countries.
An IS trainer with more than eight hours of unedited training videos was captured by the remnants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) as he headed north through Turkey towards Europe.
The FSA passed the material to Sky News but was not aware of the importance of the videos, described by a weapons adviser to the British military as an intelligence “gold mine”.
Using aerial and satellite imagery Sky News has identified the location of the “university” and pieced together the apparently random collection of video files to reveal the true extent of IS’s sophisticated development and training team.
Although this type of activity had been widely suspected by western intelligence services, this is the first concrete evidence that it is taking place.
Crucially, it is far more developed than had previously been thought possible.
Groups of trainees from a range of countries including Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Tunisia, Egypt and Pakistan were given terror training courses using science labs and facilities based around the former Equestrian Centre in Raqqa.
The extensive collection of videos shows the men being trained to adapt the electronic parts of scrap cars to make the remote controlled cars work using sophisticated un-jammable radio sets; and long lessons on how to configure the mannequins to appear like human drivers.
Some of the trainers and designers make no effort to disguise themselves but the “students” remain largely concealed.
While it is clear that all those involved have a clear idea what their objective is, at no point do they reveal the nature of their intended targets.
Security analysts believe it is an indicator that they are trying to preserve their own operational security while accepting that they need to train and circulate the videos to followers abroad.
He said: “I think this is one of the most significant intelligence finds in terms of Daesh.
“What we’ve seen with their typical propaganda videos is they’re very, very high quality.
“They’re designed, they’re produced to inspire people and prospectively touch the nerves of anybody who is viewing them; they’re done in a very specific way.
“With this training footage it’s very clearly purely designed to pass on information – to pass on the progress in the research and development areas – and it gives us a very good insight into where they are now, what they’re aspiring to do and crucially the diversity of the types of threats we might face.
“So I would say it’s an intel gold mine.”
In one of the videos a man speaking in Russian walks a camera through a store containing an array of explosive materials from TNT, improvised missiles to plastic explosives.
He explains how the materials can all be used to make bombs if they have obtained the correct fuses.
In Turkey an IS defector confirmed to Sky News that a top secret training programme was known about in Raqqa, his home town. He confirmed the programme was designed for attacks in Europe and further afield.
The defector told Sky News: “Videoing and documenting this training programme was meant for Europe to cause huge damage.
“If it was meant internally (inside Syria) they could send someone to set an explosive device or wire a car as they are able to do this (openly).
“But doing such a programme and documenting it was meant to target a large number of people and in more than one location, of course it wasn’t meant either for Syria or Iraq.”
This collection of videos is far more serious than anything we have seen from IS before.
A jihadi college training foreign fighters to fight in other countries, while developing missiles to continue the war in Syria, was suspected but never seen.
Although this film was intercepted it is thought likely there will be others in circulation, and there are hundreds if not thousands of jihadists eager to learn.
Sky News has alerted the authorities to the material that has come into its possession.
The Foreign Office responded with a statement: “Daesh will use all measures at their disposal to cause harm, and Britain will never be cowed by such terrorists. Our values are so much stronger than theirs. It will take time but this is an organisation that is losing territory and will be defeated.”
German police are hunting for a group of up to a 1,000 men in Cologne
Men accused of carrying out a series of vile sexual assaults at train station
Police described latest attacks as ‘a completely new dimension of crime’
by, Tom Wyke | Daily Mail | h/t Glen Roberts @ Trop
German police are hunting for a group of up to a 1,000 men ‘of Arab and North African origin’ who are accused of sexually assaulting numerous women and causing trouble at Cologne’s main station.
Police described the series of sexual assaults against women in Cologne on New Year’s Eve as ‘a completely new dimension of crime.’
Officers received numerous complaints from women who said they had been assaulted around Cologne’s main train station next to the western German city’s famous cathedral on the night from Thursday to Friday.
The group of men reportedly also robbed their victims and threw fireworks at a crowd of people, according to Breitbart.
Cologne police chief Wolfgang Albers said witnesses described the assaults as coming from a group of up to 1,000 men whose appearance indicated they were of ‘Arab or North African origin.’
Some 60 criminal complaints have so far been filed, including one allegation of rape.
German news agency dpa quoted Albers telling reporters on Monday that it was ‘an intolerable situation that such crimes are committed in the middle of the city.’
One of the victims, named only as ‘Katja L’, gave a harrowing testimony of her ordeal.
‘When we came out of the station, we were very surprised by the group that met us there’. She said the group was ‘exclusively young foreign men,’ she told Der Express.
‘We then walked through this group of men. There was an alley through [the men] which we walked through.’
She described the moment she ‘felt a hand on my buttocks, then on my breasts, in the end’.
‘I was groped everywhere. It was a nightmare. Although we shouted and beat them, the guys did not stop. I was desperate and think I was touched around 100 times in the 200 meters,’ she said.
‘Fortunately I wore a jacket and trousers. A skirt would probably have been torn away from me’.
It is unclear if the gang of men are migrants but opinions remain divided in Cologne over the recent influx of migrants with protests held by PEGIDA and a campaign supporting migrants.

In a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State, an unnamed British executioner calls Prime Minister David Cameron an “imbecile” before executing five men accused of spying against the Islamic State for the United Kingdom. The video was allegedly filmed in Raqqa, the “capital” of the terrorist Islamic State.
The video begins with a young boy with a British accent threatening terrorist acts against the United Kingdom. The young boy, dressed in fatigues, points off in the distance and says, “We will kill kuffar [infidels] over there.”
The propaganda video is ten minutes long and includes the execution of five shackled men dressed in orange boilersuits who “confessed” to spying for Great Britain.
A masked executioner with a British accent delivers a message directed at Prime Minister David Cameron before the men are executed. He has been dubbed the “New Jihadi John.”
A full transcript of the New Jihadi John’s speech reads:
This is a message to David Cameron. Oh slave of the White House, oh mule of the Jews. How strange it is that we find ourselves today hearing an insignificant leader like you challenge the might of the Islamic State. How strange it is that the leader of a small island threatens us with a handful of planes. One would have thought you would have learned the lessons of your pathetic master in Washington and his failed campaign against Islamic State.
It seems that you, just like your predecessors Blair and Brown, are just as arrogant and foolish. In fact David, you are more of an imbecile. Only an imbecile would dare to wage war against a land where the law of Allah reigns supreme. And where the people live under the justice and security of the Sharia.
Only an imbecile would dare to anger a people who love death the way that you love your life. Oh British Government. Oh people of Britain. Know that today your citizenship are under our feet. And that the Islamic State, our country, is here to stay. And we will continue to wage jihad, break borders and one day invade your land where we will rule by the sharia.
But as for those of you who wish to continue fighting under the banner of Cameron on the minimum wage, we say to you, to ask yourself, do you really think your government will care about you when you come into our hands? Or will they abandon you, as they have abandoned these spies, and those who came before them? Because you will lose this war, as you lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.
But this time when you lose, your children will pay for your deeds. And remember you as the fools who thought they could fight the Islamic State.

A few of the American Male Misogynists that Support the Islamic Subjugation of Women in America include: Chief Justice of Massachusetts’s Supreme Judicial Court, Ralph Gants, Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh and Boston Police Commissioner, William B. Evans

Last week, the Chief Justice of Massachusetts’s Supreme Judicial Court, Ralph Gants, spoke before the Islamic Society of Boston. He affirmed his support for the mosque, telling congregants that, “you do not stand alone.” Gants is just one of several high profile visits to the mosque in recent months, which have included the Mayor of Boston, the Boston Police Commissioner and local rabbis and reverends.
The Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), however, has a long history of extremism. It was founded by the Al Qaeda operative Abdulrahman Alamoudi, who was jailed in 2004 for participating in a Libyan plot to assassinate Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah. The ISB’s listed trustees have included prominent Islamist operatives, including Yusuf Al Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood. And in 2008, the Muslim American Society, which runs the ISB’s Cultural Center, was labelled by federal prosecutors “as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

Today, the ISB claims it is a “model for civic engagement,” and works to “strengthen community relations.” Why, then, does it continue to promote some of America’s most radical preachers?
On October 30, the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) hosted a two-day conference on behalf of an extremist Islamic organization called the Qalam Institute. Two of the keynote speakers are notorious fundamentalist preachers.
One such speaker, Mufti Hussain Kamani, has called upon God to “reward the martyrs of Palestine.” And in a pamphlet titled, ‘The Prophetic Code,’ published by the Qalam Institute, Kamani cites Quranic verse and commentary, in which he tells Muslims: “do not resemble the Jews.” Parents are also advised to “beat” their children “if they do not [pray].”
In a talk titled “Sex, Masturbation and Islam,” Kamani explains that a Muslim man must only fulfill his sexual desires “with his spouse…[or] with a female slave that belongs to him.”
Those who commit adultery or have sex outside of marriage, Kamani also states, must be “stoned to death.”
During another talk on ‘Rights Of A Wife In Islam,’ Kamani explains “how to deal with the women folk” and how Muslim husbands can “train their wives.” Beating women, Kamani advises, should only be a “last measure.”
Extremist preacher Mufti Hussain Kamani, Qalam Institute
Another speaker at the conference is the founder of the Qalam Institute, Abdul Nasir Jangda, who frequently presents sermons about the iniquities and treacheries of the Jews during the time of Islam’s Prophet. Jangda describes Jews in this period as a “really bad people” who opposed the peaceful message of Islam and “liked the trouble because they were able to pull the strings and maintain some type of advantage in the community through political maneuvering. … They were very hateful, very spiteful.”
According to detailed notes published by one of Jangda’s students during one of his seminars, Jangda also defended the use of female sex slaves within Islam. Jangda reportedly concluded that, “Slavery in Islam … is vastly different and superior morally and spiritually to the atrocious, obscene, and vile Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.”

Furthermore, Jangda apparently expressed support for the killing of apostates and adulterers; claimed that a wife cannot refuse her husband sex: “The thing to understand is that the husband has his set of divinely given rights one of which is the right to have his physical desires satisfied”; and called for people who drink alcohol to be beaten: “One of the largest causes of death in the United States is drunk driving. Such policies would help curb them immensely and avoid harm to the people at large.”
Over the past few months, the ISB has enjoyed high-profile political support, despite its continued promote of bigoted, extremist speakers. The ISB repeatedly claims to have rejected the fundamentalist beliefs of its founding trustees and former officials. Its continued embrace of some of America’s most radical preachers, however, suggests otherwise. When will Massachusetts politicians reject this politics of hate and instead work with moderate Muslim groups?

In yet another heinous crime committed by the Islamic State terror organization, the group has blown up a four-year-old child just one week after executing the child’s father.
Speaking to Alsumaria News, a senior official in the Iraqi national organization the Popular Mobilization Forces, Jabar el-Maamouri, said ISIS exploded “a bomb that was attached to a four-year-old child through a remote-controlled device so that his organs would be blown apart. ISIS executed the boy’s father a week ago who they accused of participating in an attack on one their outposts a month ago that killed two ISIS gunmen.”
The killings took place in the Al-Shirqat district north of Salah ad Din province.
El-Maamouri called human rights organizations to “document the crimes of ISIS and to publicize the incident to the international community to condemn its funders and supporters with money and words.”
ISIS has controlled the Al-Shirqat district since June, 2014. The area is considered to be one of the organization’s strongholds.
Elsewhere in Iraq, a local source in Nineveh province who asked to remain anonymous told Alsumaria News that the Islamic State wiped out a village after its residents rebelled against the group.
“ISIS executed today (Monday, Dec. 28) dozens of civilians including old people, women and children in the village of Al-Choud in area of Al-Keraya (85 kilometers south of Nineveh),” he said.
The source explained that the Islamic State conducted the executions after residents of the village demanded that Islamic State gunmen leave the village.
The vengeance was conducted after the loss suffered by the Islamic State when the Iraqi army regained the city of Ramadi. The people of the village had succeeded a few months ago to expel Islamic State gunmen from the village, however, ISIS recently returned and re-occupied the village.
In other news, Russian media reported that notorious senior Islamic State commander Abu Omar al-Shishani was arrested in Kirkuk, Iraq by American special forces Monday, Dec. 27.
Al-Shishani, is a Chechen jihadist from Georgia. Born Tarkhan Tayumurazovich Batirashvili, the red-bearded commander in Syria is a former sergeant in the Georgian Army.
Following the Islamic State’s defeat in Ramadi, the capital of the Al Anbar province, the Islamic State’s “Caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi released a recording assuring its followers that the group is “fine and expanding every day.”
In that same offense Kurdish Peshmerga fighters recaptured a key dam in the area.
In the online address, al-Baghdadi conceded that Western and Russian airstrikes have had taken a “calamitous” toll on the group, but insisted that the losses were part of a “pre-destined ordeal.”
In an astonishing deviation from Islamist theology – that the group’s victories show that their pursuits are the will of Allah — al-Baghdadi said that the deaths of thousands of the group’s jihadis were a “blessing from Allah.”
He also bizarrely welcomed the recent widespread desertion amongst ISIS ranks, branding deserters “hypocrites and agents” and insisting that the numbers of fighters abandoning the jihadis every day is actually making the group stronger.
The unhinged message, which was circulated amongst jihadi fighters online, is the latest evidence that the increasingly fragile hate group is falling apart amid reports it is desperately short of both fighters and weapons.

Children Used as Suicide Bombers in Central Asia
by, Deutsche Welle | h/t Glen Roberts @ Trop
Terrorists in Afghanistan and other Central Asian countries are training children to blow themselves up in suicide bomb attacks. Minors are kidnapped or sold and then taken to terrorist training camps.
European media outlets have often reported that the so-called “Islamic State” militant group has set up special terrorist training camps for children and adolescents in Iraq and Syria. The practice has been around for some time in Central Asia. Large numbers of terrorist camps can be found there, above all, in border regions.
“The Taliban has an important training facility in the northern Afghanistan province of Kunduz. There they not only train adults, but children as well. These learn the skills needed to become suicide bombers,” Andrey Serenko, expert at the Center for Studies of Modern Afghanistan in Moscow, tells DW. “Children between the ages of six and eight, for instance, are trained to install roadside bombs.” It generally takes between one and six years to train a child.
Taliban ‘trains children for suicide attacks’
“There is a Taliban camp in the Ghormach District, in the northwestern Badghis Province,” says the expert. “It is run by a rather well-known teacher named Mullah Qayyum. He prepares children for suicide bombing missions. Most of the children there have either been kidnapped or sold by their own parents.”
Some children are sold at market for up to $1,000 (915 euros). Another Taliban suicide bomber training camp is located in the northern province of Sar-e Pol, where many of the trainers come from Pakistan. Compared to the Kunduz camp, training at Sar-e Pol is very rapid, taking just three months. The Center for Studies of Modern Afghanistan counted up to seven children there in November.
Terrorists use children because they can gain the trust of potential victims more readily, said Natalia Kharitonova of the Crisis Situations Research Center (CSRC) in Malta. It was also easier for children to get close to potential target areas. “They are more effective than adult suicide bombers, but their use has its limits. For instance, they really can’t carry out car bombings,” Kharitonova said.
That could well be the reason that prices paid for child suicide bombers are lower than those paid for adults in Afghanistan and Pakistan. “Children are usually outfitted with IEDs (improvised explosive devices), which are remotely detonated. Sometimes the children don’t even know what they are actually doing,” Natalia Kharitonova told DW.
Many kidnappings in Afghanistan
The crisis research expert theorized that many of the children at the camps are those of fighters who had been killed in battle. Since their ongoing care cost a lot of money, she suspected that such children were sold off as soon as possible. She made that assumption based on reports from Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Andrey Serenko believed “Islamic State” was preparing suicide attacks using women and children in Syria. However, only men were being trained in “IS” camps in Afghanistan right now.
There was information suggesting that there were children at these camps, yet it is unclear what their role was, Serenko said. “The fact of the matter is that ‘IS’ has not yet used children as suicide bombers in Afghanistan – the Taliban has,” Serenko added.
In his opinion, the targeted training of suicide bombers – and especially children – could be traced back to the influence that the Arab terror organization al-Qaeda has had on Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Russian expert suggests that Uzbekistan’s role should be taken into account as well.
“One has to be aware of the fact that members of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) were thought to be competent suicide trainers while they were in Afghanistan.” Therefore, he assumed that some members of the IMU have also become members of “IS.”

Hmm.. so there really are ‘good Muslims’ out there.
by, John Nolte | Breitbart News
Using surveillance video from other area businesses to identify the arsonist, Gary Nathaniel Moore, 37, was arrested and charged with starting the Christmas Day fire that devastated a Houston, Texas mosque. Moore is a devout Muslim who attended this same mosque for years, praying up to five times a day every day of the week.
Also up in smoke is the DC Media’s hoped-for anti-GOP Narrative. Before any facts were known, numerous DC Media outlets immediately exploited the tragedy to place the blame for the fire on Donald Trump.
Advocacy groups believe there has been a spike in anti-Muslim incidents across the United States in recent weeks that can be linked to the mass shooting in California and the inflammatory rhetoric of Donald Trump and other Republican presidential candidates. And they say that Muslims are fearful the backlash could lead to further harassment and violence.
The Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on authorities to investigate the fire for an anti-Muslim motive.
“Because of the recent spike in hate incidents targeting mosques nationwide, we urge law enforcement authorities to investigate a possible bias motive for this fire,” Mustafaa Carroll, the chapter’s executive director, said in a statement.
The Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on authorities to investigate a possible bias motive in the case, citing what it called a “recent spike in hate incidents targeting mosques nationwide.
Now that a devout Muslim has been charged, the DC Media will forget all about the incident.
The media’s playbook is always to immediately use any disaster or crime as a means to make the GOP answer for it. Then, once the facts come out and point to a member of the Protected Class, the story is memory-holed and the accusation against the Republican lingers.
– – – –
Finally, an upstanding Muslim citizen that ‘we’ can get behind and support. Perhaps we should look into assisting this Muslim with his legal aid, so that he can get out of jail and continue to spread ‘his brand’ of Islam across the U.S.
