14YO who plotted ISIS attack in Great Britain gets 5+ years jail time
The youngest jihadist in Great Britain will serve a minimum of 5 years in a correction facility for plotting a terrorist attack in Australia and for threatening to kill his school teacher. The bizarre case drew international attention because of the heinous nature of threats and plots coming from someone so young.
The child, who lived in a “normal” home setting in Blackburn, Lancashire, was posing as an adult jihadist and directing the actions of 18-year-old Sevdet Besim, a Melbourne native. Besim was killed after stabbing a police officer.

This should be a wake up call to parents around the world. In a world where children have access to communication with nearly anyone anywhere in the world, the influences from organizations like the Islamic State pose a threat that we’ve never seen before.
