In the past few days, U. S. President Joe Biden has been forced to apologize to two foreign leaders for telling the truth. Biden suggested at a forum at Harvard that Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other so-called U.S. allies, directly enabled the rise of the Islamic State or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). In answer to a question from an audience, Biden replied, «…when it came to Syria and the effort to bring down President Bashar Assad there, those allies’ [Turkey, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Qatar] policies wound up helping to arm and build allies of al Qaeda and eventually the terrorist ‘Islamic State.’» Biden was forced to apologize to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for telling the truth.
Biden’s humiliation was obviously directed by the «deep state» forces inside his own administration who laid the groundwork for what has become a debacle for U.S. Middle East policy. Biden’s only mistake was to omit Israel and its agents-of-influence inside the U.S. government, including National Security Adviser Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, and Assistant Secretary of State for Near East and South Asian Affairs Anne Patterson.
There is little doubt that the Muslim Brotherhood ally Erdogan has been constantly supplying ISIL with financial and weapons support in order to vanquish not only Syria’s Kurdish population but that of Iraq. Although Turkey and its erstwhile ally, Israel, had a major falling out over Gaza, that diplomatic hiccup has not stopped Israel from supporting ISIL guerrillas in Iraq and Syria. In a typical Middle Eastern «the enemy of my enemy is my friend» scenario, Turkey and Israel are seeking to see ISIL turn Syria and Iraq into warring statelets that will eventually fall prey to the territorial designs of the Muslim Brothers in Ankara and the Zionist expansionists in Jerusalem.
The duplicity of Turkey and the expansionism of Israel have served as yet another bitter betrayal of the Kurds who have wrongly believed that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his predecessors favor Kurdish independence. Kurds in Iraq, Syria, and Turkey are mere pawns for the Ottomanist Muslim Brothers who serve Erdogan and the Zionist Jewish expansionists who support Netanyahu. It is the Iranians and their Iraqi Shi’a allies who have come to the assistance of Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga forces who have battled the well-armed, well-led, and financially-flush forces of ISIL. It was learned by the author while recently visiting Tehran that Israeli commandos have been witnessed transferring weapons to ISIL forces in Iraq’s Anbar province. That should be enough to end Kurdistan’s historical fealty to Israel since the Israeli-supplied weapons have been used to massacre Kurdish military forces and civilians, along with minority Iraqi Christians, Shi’a, Turkoman, Yazidi, and other minorities.
For Israel, which savors the blood of Arabs and Muslims, the news from Iraq could not be better. The United Nations said that for the month of September, 1,119 Iraqis designed in violence perpetuated by the Israeli-armed ISIL.
The Saudis and Qataris have also been quite busy in supporting their ISIL comrades. ISIL forces in Aleppo, Syria have been witnessed receiving bundles of cash bearing Saudi and Qatari bank stamps clearly visible on the cash wrappers even as the Saudis and Qataris claim they are fighting ISIL alongside American forces.
It was also reported that Nabeel Rajab was arrested by Bahraini authorities for tweeting that Bahrainis who are fighting for ISIL are actually members of the Bahrain security agencies, which are under the effective control of Saudi Arabia. Rajab tweeted: «Many #Bahrain men who joined #terrorism & #ISIL came from security institutions and those institutions were the first ideological incubator.» Bahrain is supposedly a member of President Barack Obama’s motley coalition of the Gulf Cooperation Council nations, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain but sans Oman, who are said to be allied in fighting ISIL. Kuwait’s government actively supports the actions of the Great Kuwait Campaign, which seeks to have ISIL and the Al Nusra Front in Syria, which it supports with cash, to massacre Christians along the Syrian coast and Lebanon and the «Safavids», a derogatory term used for the Shi’as and their Syrian Alawite cousins who populate both Syria and Lebanon.
Biden obviously has been briefed on similar intelligence but he has been restrained from calling out the Saudis and Qataris for their treachery. As for Qatar, which proudly champions the editorial «independence» of its Al Jazeera television network, the author learned while in Tehran that the Qatari network not only employed virtually the entire Arabic broadcasting service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) to work at the Doha-based network but also bought equipment from the BBC, the insinuation being that there is very close cooperation between the propaganda goals of Al Jazeera and the BBC.
Biden was merely publicly stating what German Development Minister Gerd Mueller said last month, that Arabian emirates like Qatar are directly supporting ISIL.
Netanyahu’s covert support for ISIL has resulted in some blowback for Zionist goals in the region. For example, news picked up in Tehran that there has been low- and middle-level contact between U.S. special operations forces and Iranian elite special operations Al Qods units of the Revolutionary Guards via the auspices of Kurdish Peshmerga forces in Iraqi Kurdistan could not have been welcome news to the Jerusalem authorities. In fact, the author learned that the interaction between U.S. and Iranian special operations personnel went exceedingly well in northern Iraq and that the sharing with Iran of U.S. intelligence on ISIL and vice versa was accomplished with no problems. Of course, such cooperation is anathema to the Israeli agents burrowed within the State Department and National Security Council so the U.S. interlocutors with the Iranians face potential career problems down the road with the «Israel firsters» who continue to dominate the U.S. foreign policy and security apparatus.
Rather than seek to eliminate ISIL’s most radical leadership, the Turks, Saudis, and other Gulf Arabs have sought to eliminate «moderates» in ISIL’s top ranks. It was learned in Iran that more «professional» ISIL commanders from Tunisia were beheaded by their takfiri subordinates in Syria. The Tunisians were replaced by even more radical Chechen commanders from Georgia and extremist Uighurs from China’s Xinjiang province. The ultimate authorities over ISIL see these more radical commanders as important for carrying the «Caliphate» campaign to Russia’s majority Muslim Caucasus region and China’s western frontier.
Essentially, the rise of ISIL follows the plan of Netanyahu’s «Clean Break» or Securing the [Jewish] Realm policy first enunciated in 1996 after the Israeli expansionist plan was crafted by leading American neocons like Richard Perle. The Israeli plan, which has been adopted by such Obama administration officials as Rice and Power, sees a future Middle East where Arab nation states dissolve into small emirates and imamates that are easily dominated by a Greater Israel. The formula, also supported by Zionist hedge fund billionaire George Soros, will create the same situation as what occurred with Yugoslavia: the creation of smaller nations that will lack any power to confront Israeli and Western designs. Biden, who recently railed against American banking «shylocks», may be waking up to the true enemies of America and world peace.
