I think this guy is brainwashed or just braindead, but this is some of the worst advice I’ve heard.
He sounds like he’s following in the Barack Obama school of defeating ISIS. This story was first posted over at UNILAD with the headline: “Man Held Captive By ISIS Reveals Best Way To Defeat Them”. Sounded interesting to me, so I took a look, only to read the most idiotic ideas since Obama.
To summarize his plan, he claims we should stop all air strikes, stop attacking them, and welcome in all refugees! Yeah, let’s start with sending them to your house Nick! What a moron. He claims he “knows best” how to defeat them because he was held for 10 months. Sounds to me more like he was brainwashed for 10 months.
Here’s a portion of the story that ran in UNILAD where he sounds just like Obama:
Nicolas Henin, who was held hostage by ISIS for ten months, spoke to The Syria Campaign to provide his own resolution for terminating the fundamentalist group. In his eyes, airstrikes are to be avoided.
Henin was captured by the extremists and Mohammed Emwazi – later known as Jihadi John – is said to have abused the journalist through physical and psychological torture.
Strikes on Isis are a trap. The winner of this war will not be the party that has the newest, the most expensive or the most sophisticated weaponry, but the party that manages to win over the people on its side.
Henin believes the West’s best bet is to embrace refugees fleeing their war-torn homes.
Hundreds of thousands of refugees, fleeing this Muslim land that is like a dream for ISIS – that is supposed to be their Israel? And fleeing that land to go to the land of the ‘unbelievers’?
This is why they probably tried to manipulate the public during the Paris attacks. To make us close our borders, and maybe even more importantly, close our minds.
Henin’s main argument is that airstrikes and military intervention simply serves as a reason for moderates to join ISIS.
What we have to do – and this is really key – is we have to engage the local people. As soon as the people have hope for a political solution, the Islamic State will just collapse.
There will be a very easy way to make Isis lose ground at a high speed. The international community must decide all regions held by the Syrian opposition are no-fly zones.
No-fly zones for everybody. Not the coalition, not the Russians, not the regime, nobody. Providing security for people [there] would be devastating for Isis. That’s what the international community should focus on.
Why are we making so many mistakes? Why are people so misunderstanding [ISIS’s] vision?
