When reading the article in the CBC News Montreal, it reinforces the insanity of Jihad.
A 15-year-old teen robbed a convenience store and after being arrested, stated he needed money for a plane trip to go overseas and join the Jihad. The article at Jihad Watch stated:
The boy told the officers that he had been living in sin as his country did not practise Sharia law.
According to International Business Times, he is the first teenager in Canada to be charged with terrorism-related activity.Wikipedia entry:
The boy needs some serious professional help starting with the fact that under Sharia Law he would be missing a hand or two for stealing.The Qur'an and several hadith set out two different punishments for theft (stealing). They say that the punishment should depend on how many times the person stole, and what he stole. One punishment is imprisonment. Another is amputating (cutting off) the hands or feet. However, before a person is punished, two eyewitnesses must swear, under oath, that they saw the person stealing. If this does not happen, then the punishment cannot be carried out. Also, some other requirements have to be met. These requirements have to do with the theft, what was stolen, and how the theft happened. All of these requirements must be met, as decided by a judge.[Qur'an 5:38]
It is appalling how US and Canadian (and UK) youth are being recruited into the ranks of Islamic Jihadists. I can understand convicts in prison being recruited because criminal actions in the name of God (Allah) is condoned.
Why would anyone even consider such a thing?
We need to find out why our youth are allowing themselves to be brainwashed into joining a murderous and intolerant religious sect.
