Once again, an ISIS murder leads to fears that it is winning, and calls to do more.The general feeling is that ISIS is gaining ground with its brutal and diabolical methods.ISIS took as hostages two Japanese men – an odd choice given that Japan is utterly tangential to the Middle East.This suggests that the much-vaunted moneymaking machine of ISIS might not be working as well as many believe.Tokyo refused to pay, so the terrorists were left with hostages who had no value. They executed one and then offered to release the other if the Jordanian government would set free a terrorist, Sajida al-Rishawi. Rishawi was a largely forgotten, would-be suicide bomber from an episode nine years ago – before ISIS even existed.News on the battlefield has not been good for ISIS.So the FLN began a campaign of terror, in order to provoke a particular overreaction from the French government – getting them to regard all Muslim Algerians as suspects.
