Yes I meant Islamist and yes, that is a correct term. Further, ISIS does not represent Muslims as a whole any more than David Koresh, Charles Manson, David Berg or Warren Jeffs et al, represent Christianity. Both the US and Israel have been caught supplying ISIS with food, weapons (US said it was "accidental") but who are they hurting? They are killing journalists, activists, Palestinians, Muslims. They are not killing Israeli's. ISIS does not represent an Islamist movement. I don't know that I would call it a creation from Israel, but entities that destabilize a region could be considered assets to countries wanting this to occur. There is no deflection in my post. I consider ISIS to be terrorists. I just find it hard to believe that between Israel and the USA with all their weapons and expertise in war that they have not been able to curb ISIS yet, and they could "accidentally" supply them. I would hope you could meet some mainstream Muslims or any other group of mainstream population that you are uncomfortable with so you could get over your misconceptions.
