In an exclusive interview with JerusalemOnline, Egyptian peace activist and political analyst Ahmed Meligy stressed that Egypt, France, Israel and the entire world is part of the same global struggle against ISIS. He sees parallels in the various terror attacks the murderous terror organization has implemented across the globe: “ISIS’s main power of influence is focusing on parallel coordinated terror attacks in the same hour in three different cities in three different continents. They blew up a mosque while Muslims were praying in Kuwait, attacked an energy factory in France and killed 38 tourists in Tunisia on July 3.” Additionally, the murderous terror attacks in Beirut and Paris occurred back to back and not too long prior to that, a Russian airplane was downed by ISIS in the Sinai.
While some individuals in Islamist circles have celebrated the murderous Paris terror attacks, Meligy emphasized that Egyptians mourned with the French people: “You see disturbing videos of some so-called Muslims celebrating the tragedy in Paris from many places in the world except from Egypt. I dare anyone to show me a video of an Egyptian feeling happy about it. Egyptians are not violent by nature and we suffer from ISIS too with over 1,000 Egyptian causalities by ISIS in less than two years.”
Meligy is very concerned about France’s future following warnings from security officials expressing that ISIS is planning more terror attacks within the country: “France is correct regarding expecting more terror attacks from ISIS in the future, which scares me because the French government will have to take desperate measures and be very hard on the Muslims in France. I can’t blame them but when a Muslim is treated guilty by association, it can create hatred and a loss of compassion for France, which can result in joining ISIS.”
However, even though the entire free world is at war with ISIS, Meligy is highly critical of how the US is leading this struggle: “To be honest, I don’t know how the US leading a coalition of 60 countries with military and intelligence capabilities cannot even stop or weaken ISIS. It is a big failure by the West. Their help to Egypt or any other country won’t be significant. I strongly believe that Egypt must strengthen its alliance with Israel because Israel is a country that has suffered the most from terrorism in the world and they have experience dealing with radical groups.
