Jurgen Todenhofer, the infamous German journalist who spent 10 days with ISIS, claims that ISIS told him Israel is the only country they fear.

In speaking with Jewish News, Todenhofer said Israel is not included in ISIS’ planned colonization of the Middle East despite making threats to kill every Jew in an October propaganda video.

He also says: “The only country Isis fears is Israel – they told me they know the Israeli army is too strong for them,” Mr Todenhofer said.

“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.”

“They want to show that the Islamic State is working,” he said afterwards. “I thought I would meet a brutal terrorist group, but I met a brutal country.”

Sorry that is a total joke. IDF have never had victories in urban guerilla warfare. They have had their butts kicked by Hezbollah and they are terrified of sending ground troops into Gaza even after weeks or air strikes.

They also say they only fear Allah, so Israel is Allah for them. Which in turn makes perfect sense because Israel is their creator.

Israel will of course support anybody that is fighting what they see as their worst enemies. And that includes the Syrian government, Hezbollah, Iraq and Iran. That includes ISIS and the other rebel groups. The only real winner after 5 years of civil war in Syria and 2 years of civil war in Iraq is Israel – these last 5 years have substantially weakened what they their enemies. They all busy fighting the civil war (and Iran at least also busy supporting the army opposed to the Saudies in Yemen). Do not underestimate the fighting capacity of the IDF. While… Read more »

That’s because Israel will wipe the floor with them if provoked. As Israel is right there and can ride it’s tanks right through them and be back before dinner
