In a shocking video, an eight-year-old Muslim girl tells the audience at an Islamist conference in Sydney, Australia her undying love of jihad. Speaking at a "Muslims Rise," held by the Australian chapter of Hizb ut-Tahrir, it's one of the most disturbing things to have emerged in the ongoing unrest in that city.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Authorities say they are now investigating the background of the little girl, who was taped describing her love of jihad, i.e. a holy war or spiritual struggle as well as the violent uprising in Syria and the global community, which is known as Ummah.

Identified only as eight-year-old Ruqaya, journalists say that she declares that "these uprisings have demonstrated that this Ummah is alive and well, that her sentiments are for Islam, her love is for Jihad, she has unshackled herself from the fear which she held."

"Children as young as myself can be seen on the streets joining the uprisings, risking their lives to bring food, water and medicine to their wounded family members, some of them never returning to their mothers ... Nobody is too young," Ruqaya says.

Sydney was rocked by violent rioting this past weekend. The Australian city is just the latest to be affected by demonstrations across the world against the U.S.-produced anti-Islam film, "Innocence of Muslims." Demonstrators clashed with Sydney police, with 17 injured and six arrested and charged on Saturday.

Most distressingly, young children were also seen holding posters with inflammatory slogans on them.

New South Wales Premier Barry O'Farrell has requested that Pru Goward, the family and Community Services Minister to urgently investigate the presence of a child at the protest, who was pictured holding posters ordering the beheading of anyone opposing the prophet.

"We cannot incite our children to violence for any reason, and we cannot use our children to promote messages that incite people to violence," Goward says.

Detectives are now hunting the organizers of the riots, who are thought to have used text messages and social networking sites to bring demonstrators together to defend the honor of the Prophet.
