ISIS’s Sharia judges have ruled that the group can execute children with Down’s Syndrome and other disabilities. An Iraqi activist group has claimed that 38 children with disabilities have already been killed. The decision is a chilling reminder of the Nazis, who killed the disabled because they were a “burden” on society.
The activist group, Mosul Eye, released a video highlighting the horrific killings, and said they occurred within ISIS-controlled territory. According to the group’s investigation, the decision to issue the fatwa allowing the murder of disabled children was made by a Saudi judge named Abu Said Aljazrawi.
