"While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has supported US calls for concerted action against the Islamic State group, he has repeatedly stressed that the Iranian-supported axis of Lebanon-based Hezbollah and Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian regime remains Israel’s most immediate threat.

“The reality is much more complicated that we used to think. Assad, he’s a murderer and our principal threat, along with all those Hezbollah forces fighting on his behalf,” said the Army’s training and doctrine chief.

“We must be prepared to fight jointly with tanks and all our combined arms capabilities,” Avman said. “At the same time, we must be flexible enough to stop an ISIS fighter on a motorcycle who may fire an anti-tank missile at us.”

When it's not hysteria, Israel will notify the US government and policy will change.

I would place more stock in the Iranian analysis than the Israeli or the "Christian" Zionist cultist which i assume he is since Mike Huckabee, promoter of expulsion of Palestinians from Israel is lecturing at his church.

"ISIS fight requires 'genocidal' Israel leave 'Palestine', Iran says.
Destroying the Islamic State will require Israel leaving Palestine, Iran's deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi said on Friday.

Speaking before the United Nations Security Council at a meeting on the crisis in Iraq, Araghchi said that Israel's actions in Gaza can "only be called genocide," and said that such actions were a rallying cry for Islamic State.

The group's demise must thus be tied to "an end to the Israeli occupation of Arab lands," he said.

US Secretary of State John Kerry chaired the four-hour meeting, and was present for the Iranian minister's comments.


"Adventurous military and non-military interventions in the region," Araghchi continued, "have helped radicalize youths."
Extremism in the region has risen steadily since 2001, he said, when the United States began the war on terror, and 2003, with the invasion of Iraq.
