Disturbing videos and photographs have been brought to the attention of the Western world depicting children as young as 4-years-old doing more than just shouting pro-terrorist slogans, but training with a variety of firearms, as reported by The Daily Mail of London, UK on Jan. 31, 2014.

Long since removed by Youtube.com as evidence of further abuse of children, the below video shows a reportedly 4-years-old Albanian boy firing an AK-47 rifle to the shouts of "Allahu Akbar" (God is Great) from a male voice off camera.

Not only the video of a child not strong enough to hold the weapons on his own, other images surfaced of boys reportedly aged nine to fifteen training at al-Qaeda camps somewhere in Syria.

Referred to as "cub jihadists" by the terrorists, the camouflaged-clad boys not only became proficient with the AK-47 automatic rifle, but also with heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launchers.

Well over 1,000...

In the meantime, it was disclosed that British Prime Minister David Cameron met with French President François Hollande, and both European leaders agreed that each nation had upwards of 700 citizens of each of their respective nations is currently fighting with Islamic Jihadist terrorist gangs in Syria.

Shocking many in both nations, the numbers cited by the two leaders is doubled the amount previously estimated by security experts.
