Photographs of toddlers grasping high-powered firearms have emerged online in a reported propaganda stunt by a terrorist organisation.
The set of pictures show a girl in full Muslim dress, aged about two, sucking her fingers while holding an AK-47 assault rifle and have been linked to extremist group the Islamic Jihad Union.
The IJU has been linked to al-Qaeda and has clashed with western forces in Afghanistan.

Don't get me wrong, the pictures alone don't offend me or effect me.
I'm more concerned about the the purpose of their use.
If it was the Islamist group posting them, why? To make people hate and fear them more?
Or are they falsely attributed to the group by someone else in an attempt to show them in a bad light...
Either reason doesn't sit right with me.
