Balarabe,

I don't see what you think is fishy. In Nigeria, of course, ISIS is a great threat -- because Boko Haram is now affiliated with ISIS. The Sunni Arabs and Turks are much less concerned about ISIL/ Da'esh, because they are religiously connected with them. Shi'ite, Alawites, Zaidis, Ibadis, Yezidis and Christians, of course, are also very threathened by ISIL Israel is not, however, as you say -- nothing "fishy" there. Israel is mainly threatened by Hizbullah, Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood, just like the Saudis, Egyptians, and othe Sunni Arabs; so the Jews and most Arabs have a common cause.

You didn't mention the US -- which, of course, has now gone over to the Iranian camp. America's long-term interests, of course, are with Israel and the Arabs; so this new anti-Semitic (Jews and Arabs are both Semites) by Obama towards the Aryan Iranians is against our own (American) interests. That isn't "fishy" either -- it just shows what a nut we have elected for our President.

Congratulations on your new leader. You have elected a Muslim and former dictator, to help you combat an Islamic insurgency. That makes about as much sense as Americans having voted in Obama. Perhaps the IRG General Soleimani can come over and help out your new leader, on a break from helping the Houthis in Yemen and the Americans in Iraq.
