The son of convicted terrorist holds up a decapitated head of one Isil’s victims for a photo opportunity

Aug 11, 2014

Sydney: A shocking image of what is believed to be the young son of an Australian man holding a decapitated head in Syria shows how barbaric the Isil “terrorist army” is, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Monday.

The picture, taken in the northern Syrian city of Raqa, was posted on the Twitter account of Khaled Sharrouf, an Australian man who fled to Syria last year and is now an Isil fighter, The Australian newspaper said.


It reportedly shows Sharrouf’s seven-year-old, Sydney-raised son dressed like any other young boy in blue checked trousers, a blue shirt and baseball cap, struggling to hold up the severed head of a slain Syrian soldier by his hair.

It was captioned with the words “That’s my boy”.

Another photo (below) published by the newspaper shows Sharrouf dressed in camouflage fatigues posing with three young boys it said security agencies believe are his sons.


All are holding guns in front of the flag of Isil militants who have swept across Iraq and Syria, seizing swathes of territory.

Abbott, speaking to ABC radio from the Netherlands, said the pictures showed the barbaric nature of the Islamist extremists.

“What we’ve got to appreciate is that [Isil] ... is not just a terrorist group, it’s a terrorist army and they’re seeking not just a terrorist enclave but effectively a terrorist state, a terrorist nation,” he said.

“And this does pose extraordinary problems ... not just for the people of the Middle East but for the wider world.

“And we see more and more evidence of just how barbaric this particular entity is.”

Australia has an arrest warrant out for Sharrouf, who has also been pictured posing with severed heads. Officials have said up to 150 Australians are fighting alongside militants overseas, mostly in Iraq and Syria.

Sharrouf, who served almost four years in prison after pleading guilty over a 2005 conspiracy to attack Sydney, fled the country using his brother’s passport.

Defence Minister David Johnston said he was “revolted” by the image, which he called “a shocking misrepresentation of Islam”.

“I’m very upset about this sort of thing completely colouring our view of Muslims,” he said, while Lebanese Muslim Association president Samier Dandan distanced the Australian Muslim community from it.

“I stand very far from that concept — this is an act of a lunatic,” he told the ABC.

Abbott, meanwhile, said Australia was ready to participate in American airdrops to civilians threatened in Iraq, and could also deploy two aircraft for any airlift mission.

“Australia will gladly join the humanitarian airlift to the people stranded on Mount Sinjar. This is a potential humanitarian catastrophe — President Obama has said it’s a potential genocide,” he said.

“So we do have some Hercules C1-30 aircraft in the Middle East and we have a C-17 that’s bringing humanitarian supplies from Australia in the next day or so, and we’d expect to join that humanitarian airlift should it be needed sometime later in the week.”

As well as dropping humanitarian supplies, American jets and drones have been carrying out strikes against Isil militants in northern Iraq as Washington seeks to turn the tide on two months of jihadist expansion in the region.

Horrible.  Its child abuse.  He has taken his innocence.  Poor kid.
Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.

These Isil operatives are some of the most ignorant people on this planet. Unfortunately a badly taught ideology of Islam can turn deadly like in this situation. They take their Jihad requirement not as it's original purpose but as a good reason to kill those who oppose them.
A respectful and well mannered man from the West.

The kids looks more like he came from Disneyland in the 1960s than from a war torn middle east.
I could photoshop something much more convincing than this in a few minutes.
And without the pixelization too.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The grandfather is on the news wanting to know how his son  could leave the country with children and travel to a war zone. That is a very good question
