From the Daily Mail:
ISIS is ‘much stronger and much more dangerous’ than anyone in the West realizes, a journalist who spent ten days embedded with the group in Iraq and Syria has warned. Jürgen Todenhöfer, 74, said that the West has ‘no concept of the threat it faces’ from the Islamic State and has underestimated the risk posed by ISIS ‘dramatically’.
The German reporter spent most of his time in Mosul in northern Iraq, but he also traveled to the ISIS-controlled territories of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor in Syria. Speaking to ABC News, the veteran journalist described ISIS as ‘the strongest group I ever met. Very strong, very clever, very enthusiastic’.
He added: ‘They are extremely brutal. Not just head-cutting. I’m talking about the strategy of religious cleansing. That’s their official philosophy. They are talking about 500 million people who have to die.’
‘The IS fighters are much smarter and more dangerous than our leaders believe. In the Islamic State, there is an almost palpable enthusiasm and confidence of victory, which I have not seen in many war zones.’
Todenhöfer went on to say that ISIS have plans for mass genocide, with the aim or eradicating all atheists and religions that are not ‘people of the book’ or who do not subscribe to their particular brand of Islam.FIVE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE NEED TO BE KILLED!
