    In a speech at the Herzliya Conference, Israel’s military intelligence chief, Major General Herzi Halevy, took Israel’s long-standing position that it “prefers ISIS” over the Syrian government to a whole ‘nother level, declaring openly that Israel does not want to see ISIS defeated in the war.

    [​IMG]
    Maj. Gen. Halevy expressed concern about the recent offensives against ISIS territory, saying that in the last three months the Islamist group was facing the “most difficult” situation since its inception and declaration of a caliphate.

    Israeli officials have regularly expressed comfort with the idea of ISIS conquering the whole of Syria, saying they find it preferable to the Iran-allied government surviving the war. At the same time, they were never so overtly supportive of ISIS and its survival.

    Halevy went on to express concern that the defeat of ISIS might mean the “superpowers” leaving Syria, saying this would put Israel “in a hard position” after being so opposed to the survival of the Syrian government.

    He then said Israel will do “all we can so as to not find ourselves in such a situation,” suggesting that the Israeli military is looking at direct support for ISIS as a matter of policy, and not just rhetoric.

    True there are people behind those Evil people,The muslim ummah is in Extreme danger we need to fight these Terrorists,It will be our doom,The syrian people were troubled with Civil war now they have to deal with ISIS and because America's own failure to provide stability to Iraq who left the country in ruin and let it be.
    We need to unite and crush these A$$holes ,Jihad against terrorism.Close the chapter forever.
    Muslims were the ones who started Liberal societies for all religions in the time of Prophet (PBUH) and Zurqarnain(Cyrus the great) and today we are presented as a very bad image.

    It's a distortion of what the general said, that Israel doesn't want the revolt in Syria to end with Hezbollah and Iran on its borders and with greater capabilities and that Israel is working to try to prevent this: link

    However, unless I'm mistaken it isn't ISIS itself that has contested with Hezbollah/Iran/Assad for control at the Israel-Syria border, but ISIS' sometime-ally al-Nusra and maybe a handful of other militias.

    The general's main thrust is that Syria has fractured and Israel can't deal with Assad or his intermediaries or the U.N. (whose forces fled the border months ago) to address Israel's border security needs. I think that has something to do with the new unit the IDF is said to have formed to develop relations with Syrians at the border: link.

    Nothing there about Israel not wanting ISIS defeated, or anything about Israel supporting ISIS itself.

    Only Jihad against these animals wont help, the ones who are behind them needed to be taken to task simultaneously.

    Zulqarnain was not Cyrus, he came much earlier then Cyrus.

    Ah the drama queen.

    You do have tendencies to generalise the matter with the blink of the eye dont you.

    I am sure there are all angels inside Isreal , got nothing to do with these animals of ISIS???

    WTH, this chap is talking about then? For Isreal, ISIS is lesser of evil then Asad?

    Some of Israel's Arab citizens have joined ISIS. When caught they are prosecuted in Israeli courts. (Example: link. )

    You are obsessed with picking sides. The general is more concerned about the outcome.

    If you are so concerned about your Arab citizens joining ISIS and prosecuting them, then why this Isreali general dont want ISIS to be defeated? And then there is a little matter of this:



    Obsessed? Let me make it clear to you. It is the ISIS we are talking about here.

    You're still truncating the general's words and taking them out of context to change their meaning.

    This is a picture of Israel providing humanitarian medical aid. Israel also treats the relatives of Hamas' leaders: link. Does that mean Israel supports Hamas bombarding its citizens with rockets? No, it's just that Israel has bigger hearts than you imagine or aspire to for yourself. If you can't admit to that then that's the same as deciding to live in delusion rather than reality.

    This is in their national interest. They don't like either of them but keep them fighting with each other.

    Its you in your blindness not actually seeing the fallacy of your arguement. Your general, in clear terms in telling the world, that his country is ok for ISIS to trample Syria, the monsters they are but not Asad regime, who by far are saints as compared to ISIS animals. There is no doubt in Muslim world that behind ISIS is Israeli backing, to destroy Muslims lands from within. No wonder, these scumbags never attacked Israel.

    The pic is of ISIS cader. who knows, he might be actually a Isreali soldier/operative!!

    Israel gives medical treatment to Syrian civilians and rebels who fight ISIS.
