Jurgen Todenhofer, the first Western reporter to embed with Islamic State fighters and not be killed in the process, spoke to Al Jazeera about his time with the terror group.
Todenhofer lived side by side with the jihadist fighters for ten days in the Islamic State-stronghold city of Mosul, Iraq. He was accompanied only by his son, who served as his cameraman.
“I always asked them about the value of mercy in Islam,” but “I didn’t see any mercy in their behavior,” explained Todenhofer. He added, “Something that I don’t understand at all is the enthusiasm in their plan of religious cleansing, planning to kill the non-believers… They also will kill Muslim democrats because they believe that non-ISIL-Muslims put the laws of human beings above the commandments of God.”
The German reporter then elaborated on how shocked he was about how “willing to kill” the ISIS fighters are. He said that they were ready to commit genocide. “They were talking about [killing] hundreds of millions. They were enthusiastic about it, and I just cannot understand that,” said Todenhofer
He warned that the Islamic State “is much stronger than we think,” and that their recruiting has brought motivated jihadis from across the globe. “Each day, hundreds of new enthusiastic fighters are arriving,” explained Todenhofer. “There is an incredible enthusiasm that I have never seen in any other war zones I have been to.”
The journalist asserted that the U.S.-led bombing campaign was not going to stop the Islamic State and its continuing jihad. He told Al Jazeera that he believed the terror group would only be stopped if fellow Sunni Iraqis would rise up against them.

Please enlighten me/us. Obviously a bullet to the brain(s) will "kill these guys and ensure they never return" as individuals but finding them all seems to be the catch...right?
Dear friends, Chancellor Merkel has asked the 'Muslim clergy' on Friday to finally clarify the relationship between Islam and violence. But would not the Christian West have to review its relationship to violence first? Islam is not the problem, our wars are the problem. They are terrorist breeding programs, not Islam.
Terrorism is the barbaric ANSWER of extremist Muslims on our barbaric oil Crusades. Without our wars, there would be no terrorism today. The predecessor organization of the "IS" for example, was founded in 2003 right after George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq. The brutality unsurpassable "IS" is Bush's baby.
No Arab country has invaded the West in the last 200 years. The West, however, fell countless times murdering into the Muslim world. Bin Laden's Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,500 people in the West. But Bush Jr. killed in the Iraq war alone more than 500,000 Iraqis. The West was much more cruel than the Muslim world for centuries. The West, not Islam, has to clarify it's relationship to violence. As long as it does not get this, it will always be terrorism.
Without our wars, there would be no terrorism today.
