JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was featured in the Islamic State’s Dabiq magazine, where the jihadist group refers to him as a “tyrant” of the Jews.

The article, titled “In the Words of the Enemy,” features a picture of Netanyahu with quotes taken from an interview he gave the CBS program Face the Nation. In that interview, the Israeli leader discusses the threat posed by Islamic State. The caption underneath the photo reads “the Taghut of the Jews,” an Arabic term meaning tyrant, heretic, or false leader.

In the November interview with Face the Nation, Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s support for American military efforts to combat Islamic State, but he also warned against the Iranian threat.
