Palestinians Flock to Islamic State

Hardly a week passes without another report of a Palestinian killed while fighting for the Islamic State terror group.

The reports have raised deep concern among many Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. A recent report estimated that some 100 Palestinians have already joined Islamic State. Other reports claim that the number is much higher.

According to the report, most of the Palestinians who joined the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are from the Gaza Strip. Another 1000 Palestinian men are believed to be preparing to join Islamic State, but have been unable to fulfill their dream for various reasons, the report revealed.

    Is there a way Israel can closely monitor this? To know who is leaving? If not, they better find a way.

    Just what the Islamic State needs, a swelling of their ranks by born losers.

    I hope a million Palestinians join Islamic State.

    This is good.
    Palestinians have an almost superhuman ability to align themselves with what will eventually turn out to be the losing side in any sort of fracas.

    Just give the land (formerly Iraq) to the Palestinians and leave Israel alone. I say empty out the territories, send them all one way.

    Most Arabs have a low opinion of Palestinians. Hopefully it is the same for ISIS.
