Former Police Official: Cut Off ISIS's Money Supply

Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says the best way to cripple the ruthless terror group ISIS is to cut off its money supply.

Kerik echoed Newsmax CEO and editor Christopher Ruddy who in a Tuesday column urged cutting off ISIS's oil revenue with targeted military strikes and "turning the screws on its financial benefactors.''

"One of the most important issues is what Chris Ruddy mentioned … about following the money,'' Kerik said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"ISIS will lose their power if they don’t have the money to proceed. Go after their money … after the oil that they’re stealing. They can’t live and survive without money.''

ISIS — a splinter group of al-Qaida that stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — has been slaughtering Christian civilians throughout Iraq as it attempts to establish an Islamic religious state known as a caliphate. It has also threatened the United States.

Kerik said the bloodthirsty extremists are in the process of recruiting all over the world.

"They have basically an army of people at this point, with people coming in from all over the world to join their cause,'' he said.

"That’s going to create problems if we can’t slow them down and destroy them.

"One of the ways to do that is going to be through these air attacks directed by the military and the Iraqis themselves and also going after their money.''
