Netanyahu: Strength of ISIS is the strength of terror and fear

Fareed speaks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Watch the full interview on "Fareed Zakaria GPS," this Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN.

You have very good intelligence. What’s your assessment of the strength of ISIS?

Well, several tens of thousands by now. It's growing by day because they've got about two million petrodollars of revenue a day. They're augmenting their territory.

The strength of ISIS is the strength of terror and fear. They don't have to be that large. There were times in history where small bands conquered all of Asia just by galloping on horses and beheading people and instilling terror into the hearts of millions. That is the strength of ISIS – fervent, frantic ideology and the willingness to kill anybody...

When will you...

…for its realization.

    Now the world understands what the neighbors have to go through every day dealing with Israel The temper tantrums, bullying, harassment, terrorism, breaking every law in the book. See how peaceful the world is without USSR. Now just imagine how more blissful it would be without Israel.

    Fork the pig.

    The world community is trying to decide which description best describes the Jews: (1) extremely selfish (2) extremely extremely selfish (3) extremely extremely extremely selfish. Take your pick......

    Living in the shadows of Pakistan, defined by China, haunted by Kashmir and punctuated by Terror Organizations such as Shiv Sena, India is struggling to find a meaning for its existence (besides a call center) and a place in the new world order.

    And they have a nasty BO.

    India is the @rse of South Asia while Hinduism represents the worst of what a medieval cult can offer. Indian culture is a conglomeration of bizarre rituals based on inc*st.

    Hindu deities are repulsive representation of horrific characters that incite b@stiality and pedophilic practices and violent and extremist acts on humans such as sacrificial rituals.

    Just imagine a deity that represents a demonic image with blood dripping mouth that makes dracula look like George Clooney ! Just look at another deity that
    resembles a reptile, a cobra, a rat, a distorted human face with an elephant's snout and numerous claws as arms/hands that will send a chill down your spine.

      "American Jew".makes about as much sense as "American Muslim". Both Jewish and Muslim teachings contradict not only American values but also teachings of the Bible that most of US and all of our presidents swear by. Even in court do we swear on the Bible, not the Talmud nor the Koran. And to Jews, Americans are "gentiles". Just as we Americans are "infidels" as described in the Koran.

        Exactly! American Christians don't exist, either. Take a good long look at the Old Testanent the Christians stole from the Hebrews. Full of the same exact vengeful things the Koran has in it. OT God wasn't "love". OT God was all about revenge and death. Maybe that's why warmongers like swearing on it so much. How about we all stop acting like we're better than others because the majority of people in the US are Christian? It's got LOADS of bloody history on its hands so finger pointing at other faiths is dumb. Not one person in this nation loves his neighbor, so that's bogus.

    I suggest US troops round-up the over 25,000 armed and organized American street and outlaw biker gangs and airlift them into Northern Iraq.

    • good suggestion, Philip

      Good suggestion, Philip. That would not be a bad idea, except for the reality of actually implementing it. You see, Biker Dudes are mostly a bunch of over weight, loser, white boys, covered with red & green tattoos, trying to look like tough guys, just by wearing a silly black leather jacket with an insignificant insignia attached to it (eg: Hells Angels). The truth? They are actually a bunch of useless, losers, that do not want to work, and have discovered that loads of easy money can be acquired by cooking crystal meth in their kitchens (until they end up in jail!). And forget about asking them to be "real men" and go fight for us in the Iraqi Desert. It would be too hot for these lost, spoiled little brats, and besides, there's no crystal meth over there.....

    Thanks to the UN granting Observer State status to Palestine, and according to UN mandates, the International Criminal Court is required to investigate each and every death of Palestinian citizens at the hands of foreign forces including Israel's IDF and MOSSAD forces.
    So far, 461 Israelis gave been indicted for war crimes. Murderous Jews are not friends.

    Actually, the strength of Muslim Brotherhood calling themselves "ISIS/ISIL" is a foundation that IRS Louis Lerner secretly granted 6 year retroactive tax exempt status to. (you may recall she claims to have "lost" emails that the NSA has already admitted to having stored as data) The Barack H. Obama Foundation.
    Why would Lerner grant tax exempt status to that foundation known to the ICC and Egypt's High Court for financing acts of State terrorism in Africa and the ME.

    And yet our Christian politicians claim that Jews are God's chosen people. That Israel is of God.
    When Israel was of God a little boy could and did strike fear into the hearts and minds of Israel's sworn enemies. Now Israel has jets and nukes and tanks and Uzzi brand machine guns, and still struggle with enemies armed with rocks. Proof that God is not with modern day Israel who are war criminals.
