My answer to Is ISIL getting more powerful and unstoppable or is it the opposite?
Answer by Desmond Last:
Every child, man or women, that is killed by the Russians, the U.S.A, Assad’s Syrian forces, the French or by any force against ISIS, is going to cause somebody somewhere to become more sympathetic towards ISIS.
It does not matter to ISIS that they have killed civilians too.
They do not have the Air Forces, and they do not have the United Nations International Convention of Human Rights.
Nowhere in the U.N Convention of Human Rights is there the right to kill innocent civilians. Approximately 300,000 Syrians have died in the five years of the conflict.
This gives ISIS more radical weaponry. It adds to their use of the Word of God to be used as revenge, and it shows their supporters how easily West uses its own Christian Morality to suit itself.
Right now in Alleppo, Syrian forces backed by the Russians and the Rebels backed by the West, are both killing civilians.
Little wonder then that ISIS and Al Qaeda continue to gain support.
The West and Russia continue to display their hypocrisy to the World by not bringing an immediate end to the conflict . They should not take sides.
They are being used by ISIS in their radical explanation of the ‘Word of God’ contained in the Quran, which is gaining them more support.
