The only army ISIS fears is... not American or Russian... it's Israeli
German reporter Jurgen Todenhofer (right in the picture), who spent ten days with ISIS fighters around Mosul, Iraq, reports that there is only one army in the world that ISIS fears, and it's not American or Russian. It's Israeli. It's the IDF
The claim from German reporter Jürgen
Todenhöfer, a former member of the German Parliament, came after he
spent 10 extraordinary days behind enemy lines in Iraq and Syria,
accompanied by his son Frederic. He returned saying the group behind the
Paris attacks was “preparing the largest religious cleansing in
history” and with a “pessimistic” view on what can be done to combat it.
But the author of My 10 Days in the
Islamic State told Jewish News: “The only country ISIS fears is Israel.
They told me they know the Israeli army is too strong for them.”
IS branded the co-ordinated attacks on the French capital that claimed 132 lives as “the first of the storm”.
Todenhofer claimed it is part of ISIS’
tactics to lure in Western boots on the ground and capture US and
British soldiers. “They think they can defeat US and UK ground troops,
who they say they have no experience in city guerrilla or terrorist
strategies. But they know the Israelis are very tough as far as fighting
against guerrillas and terrorists,” he said.
“They are not scared of the British
and the Americans, they are scared of the Israelis and told me the
Israeli army is the real danger. We can’t defeat them with our current
strategy. These people [the IDF] can fight a guerrilla war.
“In Mosul there are 10,000 fighters
living among 1.5 million people in 2,000 apartments, not in one place –
so it would be difficult [for western soldiers] to fight them. ISIS
fighters are ready to die in a war against a western soldiers.”
The journalist – who had contact with
ISIS supporters from the media department, judges, fighters and leaders –
said the group wants to conquer all the Middle East – except Israel –
in the first stage of its fight.
The second stage is conquering the
West. “They are a very strong danger for Iraq, Syria, Jordan and Libya,
while the West will be subjected to big acts of terrorism instead of a
full blown ISIS war because they say they don’t want too many battles at
the same time.”
Perhaps those who called Prime Minister Netanyahu the leader of the free world
were not exaggerating. Hmmm.
