Zvi Bar’el a member of the editorial board of a Zionist newspaper Haaretz, can barely conceal his relief at how “refreshing” the brutal, takfeeree “islamic state” (formerly known as ISIS) is. As IS wreaks havoc in Iraq, beheading people with rusty knives, gunning down men execution style etc., this is what he has to say:
While Israel is pounding Gaza, it’s good to know that at least one Muslim organization isn’t rushing to threaten Israel. This refreshing news comes from the organization known until about a week or two ago as ISIS, but which now – since it has started to consolidate its hold on a stretch of territory linking Iraq and Syria – calls itself the Islamic State.
Yes. By the way, just to be clear, this is not just a personal opinion. This is the opinion of a person who is a member of the editorial board-which reflects the opinion and political direction of a newspaper.
So to sum up, Bar’el feels that IS’ tactic of only concentrating on causing infighting in the Muslim Ummah while children in Gaza are slaughtered is “refreshing.”
The reality is that the Americans and Israelis are in no hurry to reign in IS. As “moderate” rebels of the FSA that the U.S. has been supplying with arms join IS in growing numbers, Obama is asking Congress for $500 million for these very “rebels.”
It makes sense that Israel and the U.S. are in no hurry to help Iraq and ultimately want to see it divided up. The U.S. invaded Iraq after then deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz (the same Wolfowitz lauded by some Muslim organizations and named Jerusalem Post’s “Man of the Year” in 2003), gave testimony in which he declared Ayatollah Sistani (h.a.) as the first pro-American Ayatollah in history. The Americans were convinced that they could invade Iraq, win over the Shia of Iraq and set up a system of government that would challenge the model in Iran.
Instead, Sistani (h.a.) refused to meet Paul Bremer, the U.S. appointed governor of Iraq, and the rest is history. The Israelis had pushed for the invasion of Iraq, and they with the Americans were increasingly angry at the ungratefulness of the Shia of iraq for daring to suggest that their sovereignty be respected.
Both the Israelis and Americans have learnt their lesson: Hence Bar’el’s confession of how “refreshing” ISIS’ silence on Israel is.
If ever there was any proof needed that ISIS is a godsend to the Zionists and imperialists, this has to be it.
If there are any Muslim brothers or sisters laboring under any doubt as to the true nature of the ISIS/IS, an organization whose brutality and lack of justice has nothing to do with the seerah of the Prophet (p) or the writ of the Holy Quran, they should at least give pause to the fact that Zionists can barely hide their relief at an organization such as ISIS which tarnishes Islam and gives comfort and relief to its enemies.

However, the rest of the piece is irrelevant, given the first paragraph.
