Of course, ISIS and Hamas should be enemies of Zionism. But somehow, for ISIS, the struggle against Israel gets lost in its caliphate struggle. After seizing bits of Iraq and Syria, the ISIS line was: sure, get the Jews out of Palestine, but only after we’ve cleaned up the ummah, got rid of kafirs. Then they got bogged down in slaughtering Yazidis, Shia, and even Sunnis if their beards weren’t regulation.

Parallels

Long term strategy is what motivates both ISIS and Zionists. All’s fair in love and war, so torturing and killing civilians is the order of the day. It’s all about land, so both are aggressively expansionist. Ethnic cleansing and racism based on spurious historical readings are necessary.

Israel, ISIS, the US et al kill.
Syrians celebrate life in the rubble.
