In the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris, Shabtai Shavit, the former head of Mossad, called on the United States and its allies to "wipe out Islamic State just as they wiped out the German city of Dresden" during the waning days of the Second World War.
In an interview with Israel Radio on Monday, Shavit said that ISIS has made the strategic decision to carry out attacks as indicated by the recent downing of a Russian airliner in the Sinai Peninsula, the suicide bombings in the southern part of Beirut, and the carnage in the French capital.
"Until now, Arabs killed Arabs and Muslims killed Muslims, particularly in Iraq and Syria," Shavit said. "But now they have decided to start killing infidels abroad."
