Thank you, Israel

Israel’s destruction of an Iraqi nuclear reactor in June 1981 was widely condemned internationally.

In September 2007, Israel destroyed a facility in Syria that the International Atomic Energy Agency later confirmed was a nuclear reactor.

Today, the Islamic State (ISIS), a terrorist group noted for its expansionist ideology and beheadings, burnings, kidnappings, mass killings and other atrocities, has taken control of large swaths of Iraq and Syria.

Since last June, ISIS has carried out numerous attacks or had its operatives arrested in more than a dozen countries, including the U.S.

Their stated goal is to carry out attacks in the West.

If Israel had not destroyed the Iraqi and Syrian nuclear reactors, ISIS could now be in control of nuclear weapons or material. Can anyone doubt that ISIS would use such weapons against the West? Thank you, Israel.
