Instances of Islamic State soldiers surrendering should be filmed and posted on social media to take away the "unassailable" aura of the jihadist warriors, author, diplomat and Mideast adviser Dennis Ross tells Newsmax TV.

"I've been making a suggestion for some time when you get them, when you defeat them but also when you have some surrender," Ross, author of "Doomed to Succeed: The US-Israeli Relationship from Truman to Obama," told "The Steve Malzberg Show" Monday.

"The Kurds have in fact captured a number of prisoners. We should be filming and putting on social media so it goes viral having ISIS members surrendering with their hands up. Pretty hard to be a divine messenger who's invincible, who's being driven by this faith that is unassailable and that is so pure and it looks like you're surrendering at the same time.

"That would do more to set them back and discredit them than many other things that we might be doing. "

ISIS must be beaten and it must be seen to be beaten, Ross says.

"[ISIS] is a movement that depends upon creating an image of invincibility, an inevitability so the more you defeat it, the more it loses its appeal unless it can divert attention away with these kinds of attacks that creates a sense that it can do what it wants, when it wants, where it wants against the interest of the French or the Americans.

"And we have to be tough, we have to be vigilant, we have to have a multifaceted strategy but it has to be based on the idea that we're going to defeat them and it means the way we approach defeating them has to be not just what we do on our own, what we do with others but specifically we have to be focused enough not to limit the kind of attacks we carry out on them so that we are in a sense offering small kinds of setbacks when they need to be suffering big defeats."
