The US-led coalition to liberate Mosul from ISIS has petered out. ISIS leaders and troops are strolling back into town without a fight. Meanwhile in Aleppo, ISIS is on the run from a Moscow-Tehran coalition. Why has the US op failed? And when Trump inherits the problem, Jerusalem wonders, will he turn the entire fight against Islamic State over to Putin, and by default Iran?
Palestinian leaders have incited and promoted vehicular murder of Israeli Jews for months. A grateful Islamic State exported the method to France.
BOTH RUSSIAN AND TURKISH INTELLIGENCE indicate that ISIS is going global. In the name of preventing ISIS squads from reaching Russia, Moscow too is going global in its war against the Islamist terror group.
