Jürgen Todenhöfer writes the following on Facebook: “Dear friends, today 4 years ago, Freddy and I broke into the Islamic State. The Terrorstaat is destroyed. But he has reached one of his goals. He wanted to drive a wedge into our country with his terror. Columns in non and Muslims. The most important helper was the islamophobic afd. Useful idiot of the is. Your JT”
Comment: This reminds us of the narrative that was popular in the 2014-2015 years that saw ISIS mainly in the light of what it might do to Europe. This examined ISIS end goal as creating more division in Western societies, as opposed to examining it through the lens of what it was doing to societies it actually controlled.
