With the execution of 21 Egyptian Copts, and the kidnapping of 21 more Egyptians, ISIS is attempting to lure Italy, France, and the U.S. to intervene in Libya. Over the past few days, ISIS has released two important statements: “A Message to France” that threatens not only Paris but all French speakers and also Belgium, and “A Message Signed in Blood to the Nation of the Cross” targeting Christians, significantly France and Italy and especially Copts, to bring the Crusaders to Libya. ISIS is clearly using the same tactic as was used by the ISIS in Syria to lure Jordan into the fight in the Levant with the fiery, savage execution of Lt. Moaz al-Kasasbeh.
Do not be surprised if the West and Arab allies are attacking ISIS in Libya and in the Levant simultaneouslyDr. Theodore Karasik
