Even CBC's Evan Solomon seemed shocked when NDP Defence Critic Jack Harris blamed coalition attacks on ISIS for the ongoing conflict, rather than the enemy itself.
Professor Tony Costa of the University of Toronto told me that Harris's remarks were "extremely naive and delusional and demonstrate an abysmal ignorance of the role of ISIS."
The Islamist worldview doesn't compromise and is incompatible with democracy, Dr. Costa explained. It doesn't matter what the West does, even if our intentions are good.
For example, Obama's withdrawal from Iraq was the major reason ISIS appeared on the world scene.
See what Dr. Costa believes is the key to defeating ISIS, at least in the short term.
