The ISIS jihadi savages (are there any words worse that we can use -- if so, let us know) should be happy that their offspring are chips off the old block. But in the burning department, they need more practice because all they did was injure this poor little boy and disfigure him for life. The goal, children, is the burn them to death.

A group of children in Yemen have attempted to burn a 10-year-old boy to death after first locking him in a cage in a shocking imitation of the Islamic State's murder of a Jordanian pilot.
As many as seven boys are believed to have attacked the as-yet unnamed victim in Al Dahthath village in the country's northern Ibb province.
The defenceless child was then locked in a wooden cage and had petrol poured over his body before being set alight. Thankfully a group of locals spotted the attack and managed to save the boy's life, although he was still left with horrific burn injuries on his legs.
Local journalist Mohammad Mouzahem was told about the attack and posted details of it on his Facebook page, according to Gulf News.
The boys are understood to have been inspired by murders committed by ISIS after using mobile phone apps such as WhatsApp to share gruesome videos of the terror group's atrocities, despite living in a remote village where electricity supplies are unreliable.
During the attack, the boys are said to have assumed different terrorist roles, with the 'leader' sitting in a chair and giving orders to his friends.
After being set alight, the boys cries were overheard by local residents who rushed to save him.
'The villagers took him to a local hospital where he received treatment for burns to one of his legs,' Mr Mouzahem was quoted as saying.
The attack is understood to have been a sickening imitation of the brutal murder of Jordanian pilot Mu'ath al-Kasasbeh, who was burnt alive by ISIS earlier this year.
The chilling footage, entitled 'Healing the Believers' Chests', shows the caged airman wearing an orange jumpsuit and seemingly doused in fuel as a trail of petrol leading up to the iron bars is seen being set alight.
Flames are seen quickly spreading across the dirt to the cage, where they completely engulf the helpless pilot in images that are far too distressing to publish.
Extremists pour debris, including broken masonry, over the cage, which is then flattened by a bulldozer.
The horrific murder led to Jordan immediately executing two ISIS prisoners and carrying out an unprecedented number of attacks on the terror group in Syria.
News of the attack on the 10-year-old boy in Yemen came just weeks after video emerged showing a group of young Yemeni boys reenacting the brutal murder of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by Islamic State militants in Libya.
The grainy mobile phone footage was reportedly filmed somewhere on the Gulf coast in Yemen.
It shows five young boys, possibly aged around 10-years-old, wearing only trousers, being led to a beach by five teenage boys.
The teenage boys are fully dressed and their faces are covered by scarfs to imitate the masked murderers from the sickening Islamic State execution video.
On the way to the beach, the older boys each pick up a stick, mimicking the collecting of knives by the executioners in the beheading video of 21 Syrian soldiers released in November 2014.
Lined up on the beach, the young boys are forced to their knees and stare down at the sand whilst they await their mock execution. Each boy appears deep in character, honed from studying the terror group's depraved videos.
