Default Who are ISIS?

1. They are currently murdering thousands of Muslims and Christians in Iraq

2. They have murdered thousands of Muslims and Christians in Syria

3. They formed themselves out of the anti Assad rebels who were largely supported by the USA-NATO and UK who at that time were called the FSA.

4.The Western leaders like Obama and Merkel and Cameron called themselves 'The Friends of Syria Group' who sat with their leaders in all the conferences in Geneva etc.

5. John Kerry and John McCain went on numerous trips to Alleppo and Benghazi and Damascus to meet up with these 'rebels' who have now morphed into ISIS.

6. ISIS do not threaten or speak of attacking Israel which is very strange for a so called group who claim to want to FREE Jerusalem. In fact that is the same thing the Israelis are saying. Free Jerusalem from the Muslim or Christians and take complete control of it as their religious capital.

7. ISIS have not killed a single Jew

8. Netanyahu and his Chief of Defence were posted in Israeli newspapers visiting an Israeli Army hospital on Syrian border where ISIS rebels were being treated for injuries after being attacked by Assad forces and Netanyahu shaking hands with them.

9. ISIS are trying to wipe out the Yazidis in Iraq

10. ISIS have a massive arsenal of US weaponry and tanks and jeeps etc.

11. ISIS have taken Mosul and surrounding area the oil rich area of Iraq

12. Until now the USA has been silent on the ISIS issue

13. ISIS are 30kms from Erbil where the US oil workers and US owned oil rig platfroms are

14. The USA is dropping water and food into the desert around Erbil and Mosul which ISIS are picking up and using as replenishment

have I missed anything?

A breakdown in security the countries bordering Israel is certainly something they will not complain about.
If your enemies are fighting among themselvs then they are leaving you alone.
A cynic could suggest that it is only the threat to US personel and the oil fields that has led to the change in US policy.
Air strikes on the insurgents who have changed their name yet again weeks ago could have made a difference.
Now it could be too late.

Your #12. I'm not sure that dropping bombs on them counts as being "silent".

The US, at least, has a long record of supporting psychos. Murderous ones. And not before they go psycho, just until they stop being "our"psychos.

It's a fervent belief in an afterlife that gives them courage to fight; they aren't scared of that. The US has to find a more efficient method of killing them here on earth than launching a carrier strike against each vehicle and troop concentration or ISIS will control Iraq this summer.

Actually the talk of Egypt falling will be the end of Israel. If the biggest Arab Army in the region was to fall then it's game over for Israel. You have to ask why does the USA prefer the MB and Morsi rule to Al Sisi??

100% correct but what is more disturbing is the British being part of it because generally the British are thought to be much wiser and worldly than the Americans.

Both governments are controlled by the zionists we all know that. The British people though are thought of as not so dumb as the Americans.

So who are ISIS?

They are not Muslims or Christians obviously since they are their targets.

Who are behind ISIS?
