The boy also praises “Palestinian” and other jihadis.
“Baby-faced weapon: Boy, 9, heaps praise on ‘martyrs’ and ‘mujahideen’ engaged in bloody jihads throughout the Middle East,” by Taylor Auerbach, The Daily Telegraph, September 27, 2014 (thanks to Kenneth):
HE is the baby-faced weapon of the religiously driven, democracy-hating men striving for a Muslim caliphate built on sharia law.
All of nine years old, he stands at the front of a gathering in Sydney reciting passages from the Koran and lecturing followers on the importance of sacrifice in Islam.
The little boy, who according to his father’s social media profile enjoys trips to McDonald’s and dinosaur exhibitions when he’s not giving sermons, heaps praise on “martyrs” and “mujahideen” engaged in bloody jihads throughout the Middle East.
In a video posted by his father, the youngster delivers a chilling speech to a crowd of his “brothers and sisters” in which he calls for the restoration of Islamic authority around the world.
“The mujaheens in Syria and Afghanistan and in Palestine and all around the Muslim lands who know that only Islam can bring mercy to mankind,” he preaches in an Australian accent.
“Let us take this opportunity, in this month (Ramadan) … by sacrificing everything for the sake of Allah.”
The video of the speech was uploaded to social media in July and shared a number of times. At one point the boy appears to receive prompting by somebody sitting behind the lens.
Alongside the video his father — a devotee of controversial Muslim group Hizb Ut-Tahrir — has also shared a number of confronting images, including soldiers brandishing machine guns and Islamic flags.
He has also posted extremist banners proclaiming “Say no to democracy” and proudly describes his admiration for the group’s controversial spokesman Uthman Badar. The man, who The Saturday Telegraph has chosen not to name, seems hell-bent on the idea of a global Islamic state and has shared links to organisations displaying the slogan “Muslims Rise, Caliphate Imminent”.
Terror group Islamic State, which has taken over large swathes of Iraq and Syria, has expressed a caliphate as its goal.
The same boy was also introduced by Uthman Badar at a 2012 rally in Bankstown’s Paul Keating park before delivering another speech: “We witness that our brothers and sisters in Syria, in Afghanistan, in Palestine and other countries has been oppressed by corrupt tyrant rulers.
“They sacrifice their lives and they sacrifice their families for the sake of Allah. May Allah help our Ummah to work day and night to establish the (caliphate) that will protect and free all Muslims from oppression.’’
Neither the boy’s father nor Hizb Ut-Tahrir responded to requests for comment.
