ISIS indoctrinated children: Western countries’ moral responsibility or danger to society?

The rehabilitation of children indoctrinated by Islamic State should be a priority for the countries responsible for the rise of the group, says Paul Kawika Martin, political and communications director at Peace Action. It is a potential danger, argues conservative activist Lauren Southern.

Despite Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) losing its hold in Iraq and Syria, there is still huge concern over the legacy it is leaving behind.

At the height of its power, IS raised an army of children, the so-called ‘Cubs of the Caliphate,’ who were taken to special training camps where they were given an education – not in literature and arithmetic, but in extremism and executions.

RT spoke to Paul Kawika Martin, political & communications director at Peace Action, and Laura Southern, conservative activist and journalist, to discuss this issue.

RT:  Paul, so-called ISIS cubs have been filmed executing people, some of them say they admired ISIS executions videos. Surely they now pose a direct danger to society? Are they the next-generation jihadists?
