    In theory, surely this would be the first place ISIS would attack.
    If they ever share a border with them they will do what Palestine is doing now, that is, fire rockets from hospital car parks and use civilians as human shields while they attack Israeli civilians.

    In an open conflict Israel would stomp all over ISIS, and all of its Muslim neighbours. As they have already shown us.

    Without western weapons and finance and tech Muslim countries would be riding into battle on the backs of camels wielding scimitars and pikes, their countries are stifling to any sort of advancement beyond the bronze age thanks to Islam.

    People big up Israel a lot, but I don't know if nowadays Israel could mount a very effective offensive war in many parts of the region (that isn't to say that on the defensive front Israel is most definitely in the top-tier globally).

    I mean, they were pretty feeble in their war and invasion of Lebanon in 2006, and that wasn't for want of avoiding negative publicity by using full force, but that they found Hizbullah to be extremely formidable enemy when on the defensive.

    They could probably lick Jordan, Iraq and the Gulf countries militarily, but I doubt they could Hizbullah, Syria, Iran, ISIS and maybe not even Egypt.

    Israel is one of the worlds most advanced armies and airforce. Islamic militants generally attack women children, commuters, unarmed farmers etc and uninterested mercenaries employed by iraqi government . they are not typically good at fighting against an army, so avoid conventional conflict.
