As you said, ISIS is a threat to the long-term stability in the entire region. They won't shoot baby rockets at Israel, like the Hamas military is doing. It will be a serious bombing and with American built fighter planes, high-yield missiles and anything else that is "procured" during their plundering of Iraq.

You are quite right. I remember seeing that picture from last year.
On ISIS have you seen this (link below) which claims that leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi Trained by Israeli Mossad.

The US didn't directly fund them, they just made the same mistake they did in Afghanistan, when they armed the Afghanis against the Russians.
The mess in Syria is a convoluted mess, there's even speculation that Al Assad facilitated the rise of ISIS to divide the rebel movement, and that certainly happened..
The US tried to help the FSA, but who knew who where their real allegiance lied? No doubt many members of the FSA now fight with ISIS, but there's also no doubt that Al Nusra and the FSA fought against ISIS.
