Some of the children come with their parents from abroad, to grow up in what their parents see as a pure Islamic state. They learn to say that they are citizens of the Islamic State rather than from their country of origin. The poorer neighbourhoods of Ankara, Turkey, are reportedly a source of child recruits.
One such neighbourhood, Hacibayram, has become a recruitment hub for Isis. In Raqqa, Isis pays parents and bribes children to attend the camps.

But the recruits are not always volunteers. Children of ethnic minorities, particularly the Kurds and Yazidis, have been kidnapped and forced to join Isis. According to Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, in one case, more than Kurdish students were kidnapped on their way home from taking exams in Aleppo. A doctor told the HRW interviewers that he had treated a wounded boy between the ages of 10 and Using children under the age of 18 as soldiers is a war crime. A study of former Ugandan child soldiers found that approximately one third were diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD.
Two-thirds were suffering behavioural and emotional problems, mostly anxiety and depression. The widespread commission of atrocities could lead to a form of societal PTSD — both for victims and perpetrators.
One of the results of continuously witnessing morally injurious actions, or of perpetrating them, is the blunting of feeling and loss of empathy. Interestingly, some child soldiers may avoid adverse mental health outcomes by developing an appetite for aggression; those who learn to take pleasure from killing appear to be less susceptible to PTSD symptoms, according to work in northern Uganda and Colombia by Roland Weierstall and colleagues.
Is Isis deliberately trying to create a society with an appetite for violent aggression? His job is to assess threats of the future for the US army.

Later i got to know that he was actually interested in me. What you are dealing with is irrational thoughts and fears. It sounds like you are struggling with compulsions related to OCD.

Emotional Wellbeing Self Improvement. Nafisa Sekandari. April 11, It is simply a dirty trick of Shaitan trying to get us to take our eyes off the infinite saving power of Allah swt. When unwanted thoughts or fears hit, do your best not to let the attack distress you. Let it wash over you, keeping as calm and unconcerned as you can. Allah swt knows best, even better than you do, that these thoughts are not yours.
Temptation usually takes the form of thoughts being satanically placed on our minds, and temptation is not sin. Spiritual fact: When Shaitan is thoroughly convinced that he can no longer use such things as unwanted thoughts to annoy you, or undermine your faith, he will eventually begin to tire of that approach and only try it now and again, just to check that you have not reverted to being concerned by such attacks.
We give pleasure and power to Shaitan when we fall into his trap of supposing that his plan is to get us to think or feel wrong things. Daily Exercises: When unwanted thoughts creep in your mind, catch them and write them down. Right below the thought, challenge the thought by asking if that is a true thought.
The affirmations might not feel true for you but repeating them daily will help you replace the negative thoughts with the positive affirmations, thereby lessening the power of the negative unwanted thoughts.
