Sick terror group ISIS uses propaganda magazine to urge followers to step up twisted tactics as intelligence experts warn of swift action
ISLAMIC State have called on its warped followers to kidnap non-Muslim kids in the UK.
The terror group’s monthly Rumiyah magazine, which was released at the end of last week, calls on IS jihadis to take non-Muslims children in Europe.
The detailed and instructional article is accompanied by a picture of young boys from King’s College Choir in Cambridge with the caption: “It is permissible to kidnap the children of the Harbi Kuffar (non-Muslims).”
IS have used kidnapping as a tactic in the Middle East, particularly in Iraq where they have kidnapped hundreds of Yazidi kids and use them as slaves or trained them up as suicide bombers.
There are also reports they have used them as human shields during battles with the Iraqi army.
But this month’s plea is the first time the terror group have called on its followers to kidnap British kids.
One Intelligence expert warned The Sun on Sunday that when the group makes specific demands on its followers in the West then they usually act swiftly.
He said: “In the past, we have seen that the Islamic State’s calls for specific and direct action from its followers have often resulted in attacks being carried out in kind.
“For example, the rise in lone-wolf vehicular ramming and stabbing attacks in Europe came very soon after a call by the group to conduct such missions was issued in a previous edition of Rumiyah Magazine.”
In the article, IS write: “If he (a Muslim) kidnaps them (non-Muslim) or their children, or subdues them in any way, then the lives and wealth of the harbi kuffar (non-Muslims) are permissible… they own them.”
This month’s edition of the mag also calls on those “residing in the lands of the kuffar (non-Muslims)” to steal their wealth.
They write: “Do not forget that their war on the Islamic State is dependant on wealth, so purify your intentions, place your trust in Allah, and do not seek anyone’s advice with regards to taking their wealth.

The head of IS in Afghanistan, Abu Sayed, was killed in a US raid on Tuesday, according to officials.
Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said Abu Sayed was selected to lead the group after US and Afghan forces killed previous IS leaders Hafiz Sayed Khan in a drone strike in 2016 and Abdul Hasib earlier this year.
