One of the favorite talking points of antisemites on social media is how Israel=ISIS. How we are somehow pulling their strings.
And their main proof? Look, ISIS has never attacked Israel.
Yeah, so much for that.
Four ISIS gunmen were killed today after they opened fire on Israeli soldiers in their first attack on the occupied Golan Heights.
The Israeli soldiers were targeted with machine gun fire and mortars but were unhurt and fired back.
But the gunmen – believed to come from a group called Shuhada al-Yarmouk, which is affiliated to ISIS – were killed by an Israeli air strike on their vehicle.
Nitzan Nuriel, a retired Israeli general, said: ‘A direct attack like that on Israeli activities on Israeli side of border – this is the first time.’
He said he was baffled what lay behind the attack and said: ‘They know exactly what the Israeli response would be. An Israeli front is the last thing ISIS needs at this stage.’
Yep. I’d argue they need that as much as a hole in the head (which is incidentally precisely what some of them got for attacking our soldiers).
Antisemites: This is why they normally do not attack Israel.
Well done IDF!
