Israel Offers 'Moderate' Arab Nations Help Against ISIS

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman made an offer on Thursday to help "moderate" Arab nations in the region deal with the threat of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), which has swelled in power since a blitz attack left numerous cities and large portions of Iraq under their control, according to Agence France Presse.

"The extremists currently operating in Iraq will try to challenge the stability in the entire Gulf region, first of all in Kuwait," read a statement from Liberman's office on his meeting Secretary of State John Kerry of the United States in Paris. The statement added, "Israel could provide effective and reliable assistance to moderate Arab states who are dealing with extremists." It did not specify what sort of "assistance" was implied.
