JPost: Netanyahu suggests pinning ISIS against Iran

Nasir Khan:  Both America and Israel did the same thing during the Iraq-Iran War. They made sure no one side wins and did so by selling more arms to both sides during the war so that they prolong the war and weaken each other. Indeed, this they did. The resulting slaughter of Muslims on both sides was not a human tragedy for them but a strategic victory of U.S.-Israeli objectives.

Netanyahu suggests pinning ISIS against Iran

By MICHAEL WILNER,  The Jerusalem Post, June 22, 2014
WASHINGTON — ​Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu waxed broadly of a Middle East in turmoil on Sunday, in his first public comments on the threat posed to the region by ISIS, a terrorist militia conquering swaths of territory in eastern Syria and northern Iraq.

Threatening a borderless conflict between “extremist Shi’ites,” funded by leadership of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and equally extreme Sunnis— a soft “alliance” between ISIS and al Qaeda— the Israeli prime minister suggested the United States should largely stay out of the fight, and instead allow the parties to weaken one another.
 “Don’t strengthen either of them. Weaken both,” Netanyahu said.

As  US President Barack Obama weighs precise air strikes against the Sunni terrorist group, which seeks to establish an Islamic caliphate across Iraq and the antiquated al-Sham lands, Netanyahu declined to comment on the wisdom of direct intervention.
