    What a coincidence that ISIS flourishes when they’re next to the Israeli border.

    • Colin Oskapy

      ISIS is Zionism.

      • Serious

        ISIS is globalists tool. ISIS is not in the same level as globalists. ISIS is the useful idiot meant to destroy globalist ennemies. Wherever you find globalist ennemie, you find ISIS. That’s why ISIS never enter Saudi Arabia. That’s why you dont see ISIS in qatar, UAE, israel, ….

          That you don’t see them there, has nothing to do with that they wouldn’t be there, but that Daesh / Al-Qaeda presence is not meant for the media.

      Mercenaries primarily care for the payment, not the duty they are hired for. The duty is just the way how to gain the money.

      Oh wait, these mercenaries, we call them terrorists all the time.

    Let Daesh attack the Suez canal. =)

    • Serious

      In the past, israel france and UK launched an operation to take over the Suez canal. They succeeded. But, this time USA and USSR came and told them to withdraw from the Suez canal.

    How bloody CONvinient and CONvincing, huh, and we are supposed to believe, what, do enlighten us infidels about this sudden ISIS materializing in the Sinai, once occupied by Israel.
    And whats even more peculiar is the close, uh….. proximity to the Palestinian territory known as Gaza.
    Witch of course, made some bells ring in my head.
    An area where eCONomy have also come creeping more and more into the front of course not in the MSM, what to expect, but Oil and Gas is the key words, and Gaza is an Golden lamb, ready to be sacrificed on the altars of imperialism and globalism run by the largest Corps in the world.
    Yeah, and Egypt can spread their but cheeks far anuf.
    Israel is drooling, in anticipation of the final move to cleans the area.
    And the silence is ear shattering.

    I await in “awe” about the next moves is, and whatever statement “somebody” may come with, and of course, again, of course, whom is then the vectored wants to be sighted at, Hamas.
    Yeah, all Palestinians are terrorists, just as the Two Stupid duch-bags from Hell, Trump and an rabies infested something, called Dog.

    Interesting days, of course, and I have noticed an flash mob of both Hasbaratnjiks and well pissers, I dont know whom is worse, but Egypt, is an nation where morale and whatever humanity was left have been blowing out into the desert, and nobody have seen it since.
    I have nothing but contempt.
    Its always saddening to see an people sink so low, like the Saudis, are there no spine left anywhere.
    The treason committed is their faith, you reap what you saw, and it is against the Palestinians.
    I am empty of words.

    And again, to me this is an merc army relocated and reinforced into an new area, and of course, again, civlians whom have nothing to do with their agenda, and the Gov. agenda, is gunned down.
    Hurmf.

    peace

    It never ceases to amaze me how even supposed Arab supporters (and Arabs some themselves) don’t believe Arabs can have their own ideas and successes. ISIS sets up a state in Syria on their own? Impossible, must have been the Israelis. Beduin’s in Sinai want self determination, so join ISIS? inconceivable, must be the Israelis. Its this type of thinking that has kept the Arab people subjugated for centuries. The Beduins in Sinai want freedom from Egyptian oppression and don’t need Israel to tell them how to get it.
