ISIL from the Inside

Jürgen Todenhöfer
German writer Jürgen Todenhöfer spent some time inside the territory of ISIL, and wrote several thought-provoking articles on what he observed, summarised here. His conclusion:
I firmly believe that ISIS currently is the largest threat to world peace since the Cold War. We are now paying the price for George W. Bush’s act of near-unparalleled folly; the invasion of Iraq. To date, the West remains clueless as to how this threat is to be addressed.
He thinks bombing is not the answer.

Here is his website, and (a different version) in English.

UPDATE 27th November 2015
