Syrian children play ‘Behead the Enemy’

9/23/13. Syrian children play ‘Behead the Enemy’. Jessica Chasmar, WashingtonTimes.

A video posted to YouTube  Sunday appears to show a group of Syrian children in northeastern al-Hasakeh province playing a game called “Behead the Enemy” while chanting “Allahu Akbar,” or “Allah is greater.”

The video was posted by a man under the pseudonym “Eretz Zen,” who, according to his Twitter account, is “A secular Syrian opposed to having my country turned into a Taliban-like state.”

“The macabre culture of beheadings and body mutilations that the Syrian ‘revolution’ has brought with it has rubbed off on little children, who seem to be simulating ‘rebel’ beheadings of their enemies while shouting Allahu Akbar (Allah is greater),” a description of the video reads.

In the video, the children throw a young boy into the center of the circle and begin imitating that they are severing his head and legs from his body with sticks. They continue to make sawing motions at his neck and torso while shouting “Allahu Akbar.”

The footage was reportedly taken recently in the town of Ras al-Ayn in Syria’s northeastern al-Hasakeh province, the description reads.”
