Captured Teen Terrorist Divulges The Secret Of Why ISIS Fighters Are Cowards [Video]

Given the choice of joining ISIS or being beheaded, 15-year-old Kareem Mufleh chose ISIS. He was terrified. But Kareem knows the warriors of ISIS are brutal cowards. They drug their conscripts before battle or suicide – the drug Zolam is given them and Kareem says it makes you lose your mind. The drug is prescribed for anything from anxiety, to stress or even danger. An overdose or improper use of the pill can often be fatal. A weapon of control utilized by radical cowards.

From IJReview:

In an interview with CBS News, a captured teen terrorist opened up about life as an ISIS fighter.

When the Islamic State invaded 15-year-old Kareem Mufleh’s village, he was given two awful options: join the jihadists or experience the horror of being beheaded.

Mufleh chose to join ISIS.

While ISIS fighters have caused hundreds of thousands of defenseless people in Iraq and Syria to flee and are becoming the stuff of living nightmares, Mufleh explained what makes them so detached and cowardly.

He claims that ISIS gave him the anti-anxiety drug Zolam before he went in to battle.

“That drug makes you lose your mind,” he said. “If they give you a suicide belt and tell you to blow yourself up, you’ll do it.”


ISIS’s move is nothing new, as militant groups drugging their recruits is a common thing. Many child soldiers in Africa are drugged before going into battle. In addition, terrorists who were involved in the Mumbai attacks were allegedly on hardcore narcotics.

Mufleh’s information may explain part of the psychological reason why ISIS fighters are so willing to commit atrocity after atrocity. The Islamic State knows its message doesn’t have any real value. That’s why they are using brainwashing and drug addiction to build their terror-machine.

ISIS is resurrecting the Caliphate and cutting a swathe across the Middle East conquering and enslaving as they rape, pillage and loot to their evil hearts’ content in the name of Allah. In a broken religious philosophy, evil control freaks use the innocent as fodder in war. The cowards of the Caliphate make easy use of children and women. But they aren’t men – they are cowardly monsters.
