Violent protests generated by the infamous, insulting film about the prophet Mohammad have reached Sydney, Australia, this weekend. 6 arrests were made on Saturday, and 17 were injured during the riot.
According to the Daily Mail, an eight-year-old Muslim girl addressed her brothers at a “Muslim Rise” conference in Sydney, and spoke in favor of the holy war, Jihad.
Ruqaya encourages protesters in Syria. She references the Ummah, or Muslim global community, and sends out the message that Muslims are just beginning to “unshackle” themselves from their oppresors.
“These uprisings have demonstrated that this Ummah is alive and well, that her sentiments are for Islam, her love is for Jihad, she has unshackled herself from the fear which she held,” the little girl proclaims. The eloquence of her message leads to speculation about whether or not she is being used as a front, a weapon, in this war of the worlds.
Proclaiming her love for Jihad, the little girl encourages children to get involved in the struggle to clear the prophet's name.
“Children as young as myself can be seen on the streets joining the uprisings, risking their lives to bring food, water and medicine to their wounded family members, some of them never returning to their mothers ... Nobody is too young,” she says.
Children have been involved by their parents in this wave of unresting protests and they are being incited to violence in the Muslim community. As young as eight, their faces are plastered on images and footage taken of the protesters.
One little boy was photographed holding a poster that read: “Behead all those who insult the prophet.” The incident is being looked into by the family and Community Services Ministry in Australia.
