ISIS threat

IN the wider Middle East conflict, it would be prudent to look at a number of worrying developments which confront the western powers including Israel.

One in particular and the most acute is the rise and significance of ISIS.

International action is frequently expressed, but apart from America and a nodding response from Britain, ISIS continues to grow.

ISIS now controls half of Syria and one-third of Iraq. The implication of a ruthless terrorist organisation becoming a de facto state are all too clear.

Parliament will shortly debate whether to meet the ISIS threat by providing a more direct intervention.

It is to be hoped that Jewish Telegraph readers will take the opportunity to express their views to MPs for an immediate resilience programme to confront ISIS.
