“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,” Jürgen Todenhöfer, author of My 10 Days in the Islamic State, told the UK’s Jewish News.

Last weekend, the Islamic State released a taped message from its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, where he threatened to turn Israel into a “graveyard.”

“We are getting closer to you day by day,” Baghdadi said in the message. “Do not think that we have forgotten about you.”

“God caused the Jews of the world to gather in Israel, and the war against them has become easy. It is the obligation of every Muslim to carry out Jihad.”

Todenhöfer added that “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 [Islamic State] can’t defeat them with our current strategy. These people [the IDF] can fight a guerrilla war.”

    3 can keep a secret if two are dead. They all believe in the elders of Zion. So even with the Iran deal, the Bush abstain for a US planned op Cast Lead, Obamas cold shoulder. So when they are under the pump as with Qaddafi, Assad, we fear you, we will kill you. They are seeking survival. When they are under the pump they run to the Jews to pull up the American’s. The Jews control America and the world. That is how they think.

    LOL! Anyone believing anything coming out of the mouth of a Western journalist and one with a name like Jürgen Todenhöfer is a dime short of a nickel in the gray compartment. Without EU and US training, personnel, propaganda, logistics, weapons, money, etc., there is no ISIS. The question to ask is, why has ISIS forgotten about the US and EU? Why have they forgotten about Turkey or Jordan or Lebanon or the Vatican? Very convenient amnesia on the part of ISIS.
