ISIL’s French infiltration
"France was also targeted because it is the only Western country that considers the Assad regime as criminally culpable as ISIL. (Memories are still fresh and vivid at the Elysée of America’s abandonment of France in August 2013 when President Obama reneged on his initial plan to strike the Syrian dictatorship after the poison gas attacks on rebel-held Damascus suburbs.) The jihadis would like nothing more than for the entire world to follow Vladimir Putin’s example in pledging his government’s absolute and unconditional support to Assad. ISIL has little to fear from the Syrian despot, and has to date been largely spared by the Russian offensive."
