MK Ahmed Tibi (Joint List) says that ISIS is not a Muslim organization, even though its members declare themselves to be Muslims. He made his comment to Reshet Bet this morning.

During the interview, he called on the Muslim world to fight against ISIS and do all it can to prevent the group from continuing its terror attacks and killing innocent people around the world.

Despite his concern to avoid saying the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is connected to Islam, the Knesset member has found no such reluctance when calling his political opponents a "Jewish ISIS."

Yesterday, it was reported that ISIS has trained 400 to 600 fighters to infiltrate Europe. While there they would operate relatively independently in order to carry out a wave of attacks.

Thus, for example, the "mastermind" behind the Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, claimed to have entered Europe with a group of 90 fighters from various countries who then split up and continued operating around the continent.
