KHWEEN, SYRIA – For God’s (or Allah’s or Yahweh’s or Buddha’s or…) sake can we agree that children are not legitimate targets for terrorism?
It should come as a surprise to a grand total of nobody that terrorists are a heinous bunch of people. They carry out highly destructive attacks on a wide variety of targets and maim and/or kill a wide variety of people. There does not seem to be neither rhyme nor reason on who gets in their way.
Whatever one thinks of terrorist goals and the ‘legitimacy’ of their tactics, there should be at least one maxim we all agree on: no killing children. Children have absolutely nothing to do with whatever grievance a given terrorist group has and, consequently, should not find themselves in the crosshairs of a terrorist shooter or suicide bomber or IED (improvised explosive device) placer.
Tell that to the terrorists, especially the jihadis.
On this day in 2016
We are Syrian mujahideen, back from various jihad fronts to restore God’s rule on the Earth and avenge the Syrians’ violated honour and spilled blood.JN fighter
Um, killing kids is part of restoring God’s rule on Earth? I don’t think so!
