Medhi is trying to tell the West that Jihadi's, have loyalties only to Allah & fighting a holy war, see the rest of us as infidels to be killed. Using western supplied weaponry they will turn on western nations who supplied it. It is this grave danger that Medhi is warning about. That the UK & EU & the US will regret the day they ever got involved in the Middle East with an aim to conquer & control it. This will not happen & the US & UK especially backing the Saudis, are endangering the whole World with involvement in Syria to get at Iran, using Arabs to decimate other Arabs to suit their own World Rule agenda.

Think Medhi Asan means the West is clueless about interpreting differing Muslim ideologies, which have since ancient times, resulted in bloody battles amongst them. However, the US capitalizes on these deep divisions within their faith, backing Saudi & Qatar to further their shared, longstanding corrupt agendas, which include establishing puppet governments dependent on it. All this is greatly agitating Israel, whom the US supports too. However, Jihadi's, are loyal only to their faith & regarding moderate Muslims as infidels, slaughter them alongside Christians. I think this is what Medhi is warning the west about.
