 What exactly was his view?
The mayor said he is not a strategist, but as a manager, he says, it is time to wipe out the 40,000 to 50,000 people who have joined ISIS. He also stressed that, the Muslim community must make its voice heard, because these events first and foremost turn against Muslims in Europe. He also urged that all peace-loving Muslims in Europe should distance themselves from ISIS.  Earlier this week, Ahmed Aboutaleb has compared ISIS’s action to the Holocaust, blaming ISIS to involve in ethnic cleansing of Christians, Shiites, Yezidis, Alawites and moderate Muslims.’
