I hope we follow Israel’s lead on this and soon:
JPOST – Israel officially banned the Islamic State and anyone associating with it, in a declaration signed on Wednesday by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon.
The decree outlawed meetings of any kind between Islamic State members and called it an illegal organization.
At the same time, Ya’alon also signed a similar declaration that outlaws the Abdullah al-Azzam Brigades, a Sunni jihadist group linked to al-Qaida which has in the past claimed responsibility for launching rockets into Israel.
By officially declaring the Islamic State illegal, Israel will now be able to take legal action against anyone raising funds or associating with the terror organization in any way.
“This is being done for the sake of national security, public safety and public order,” the declaration states.
This is absolutely the right thing to do, especially for Israel. After all, every Jihadi wants to march on Jerusalem.
