German journalist, Jurgen Todenhofer, recently spent 10 days amongst a group of ISIS terrorists. According to the Blaze, Todenhofer spent months trying to develop contacts online and ensure “safe” access.
When Todenhofer gained access into the ISIS strongholds, he met with leaders, judges, and fighters. What he found is that they do not fear the United States. “They think they can defeat U.S. and U.K. ground troops, who they say have no experience in city guerilla and terrorist strategies,” Todenhofer said.
Based on his observations and conversations, Todenhofer revealed who ISIS fears most. Israel. “They told me they know the Israeli army is too strong for them,” Todenhofer said, “They are scared of the Israelis and told me the Israeli army is the real danger.”
Despite Todenhofer’s assessment of ISIS, the terrorist group released a threat this past weekend that mentioned Israel specifically. “We are getting closer to you day by day,” terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi said, “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.”
In the typical ridiculous terrorist rhetoric, al-Baghdadi called for Jihad. “It is the obligation of every Muslim to carry out Jihad. Jews, you will not enjoy Palestine. God has gathered you in Palestine so that the Mujahadeen can reach you soon and you will hide by the rock and the tree. Palestine will be your graveyard,” He said.
Do you agree with Todenhofer’s assessment that ISIS fears Israel more than the US, UK, or Russia?
