Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) Takfiri militants and Al-Qaeda linked terrorists are seeking to destabilize Iraq at the service of imperialist powers and Zionists to help them lay hand on oil resources. The United States, NATO and Israel along with Saudi Arabia have been creating and propping up extremist militant groups like the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) to “massively destabilize” countries in the Middle East.
Facts speak for themselves correctly and objectively that some of the Arab leaders (kings, Sheiks, presidents and prime ministers) including Egyptian military (coup) leaders, Libyan rebel leaders, Syrian rebel leaders, Al-Qaeda and ISIL militants leaders are political baboons who could be easily fooled, drugged and dragged and finally deceived by the Imperialist and Zionist ploys into supporting their interests to sow discord among Muslim countries and intervening in the other Arab countries as well as make them fight each other at the expense of their own fellow countrymen … and the winners are the Zionists and Imperialists Corporate world!
I am very sorry for my Arab brothers and sisters who have become victims of their western-fooled and corruptible leaders!
Zionists and imperialists seek divided Iraq for oil
Takfiri militants are seeking to destabilize Iraq at the service of imperialist powers and Zionists to help them lay hand on oil resources in the Arab country, a political analyst tells Press TV. In an interview with Press TV on Saturday (June 21, 2014), Kevin Barrett said the current tension in Iraq, just like Syria crisis, is part of a bigger plan aimed at breaking up the Middle East through destabilization.
He said the United States, NATO and Israel along with Saudi Arabia have been creating and propping up extremist militant groups like the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) to “massively destabilize” countries in the Middle East. “They are not necessarily trying to take over these countries anymore, they are just trying to massively destabilize them and even split them up, balkanize them along ethnic and sectarian lines. And groups like ISIL are perfect for this,” Barrett said.
The analyst said ISIL militants are “essentially dupes and mercenaries” who receive huge sums of money to weaken Iraq in the interest of imperialists and Zionists. “By stirring up sectarianism, attacking Shia people, [and] attacking Christians, they are making it impossible for Iraq to exist as a coherent unified nation. That’s exactly what certain interests including Zionists and extreme imperialists want. They would like to break up Iraq into three pieces so that the Israelis could grab the oil in Kurdistan,” he said.
Iraqi forces are continuing their battle against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists. Tens of thousands of volunteers have joined the Iraqi troops in the fight against militants who have threatened to take their raid towards the capital, Baghdad. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has vowed that the country’s security forces will fully confront the terrorists.
US, Israel and Saudi Arabia KSA back ISIL
Gordon Duff in his article titled “ISIL backed by US, Israel, KSA”, writes President Obama has announced that 300 American “advisors” would be deployed to Iraq to answer the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group, the American trained and supplied Al Qaeda/Takfiri militant group unleashed on the people of Syria some years ago. Obama announced that the US would begin Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) activities in the Middle East in order to learn more about the threats the US trained ISIL forces pose.
Obama, however, may well have been unaware that every 60 minutes an American spy satellite passes over Syria and Iraq with high resolution optical and synthetic aperture radar capable of identifying a single individual. He also seems unaware that the US maintains a massive signals intelligence base in Al Quds (Jerusalem) that monitors all traffic in the Middle East, a sea of not only antennas but a giant aerostat larger than a football field, thousands of feet in the air that sees and hears everything well into Iran and beyond.
There is much Obama doesn’t seem to know.
While militants fight Iraqi forces over that nation’s largest oil refinery, a column of American armor heads toward Damascus, captured from the Iraqi military. While the media tries to present this as the work of a backward “Al Qaeda” franchise operation, quite something else is afoot.
We haven’t seen a complex military operation of this scope since 9/11. The planning and logistics required are not just nearly inconceivable, they betray the full complicity of more than one operational command with access to satellite intelligence, shipping and rail capabilities and full air supremacy.
MEET THE PLAYERS
For eight years, Dick Cheney and his Israeli/Saudi friends wielded the world’s largest military force, America’s two million men, $1.5 trillion dollar per year juggernaut. Intelligence sources now tell us that this same trio, hiding behind the ISIL, is waging a corporate war across the Middle East, a surrogate war backed by corporate billions. Military and intelligence analysts conclude that ISIL operations continue to enjoy full intelligence and logistical support, port and rail facilities through Aqaba, Jordan, safe transit for militants through Israel. All other claimed sources of supply, particularly those through Turkey are a fabrication, deception and cover.
Moving military hardware through Turkey, multiple layers of military and police oversight, harbors under full naval control, is an absolute impossibility. Nothing moves in Turkey without full complicity of both civil and military authority, something that, at this time, simply doesn’t exist. All of this is meant to hide the complicity, not only of Saudi Arabia and Israel in support of Al Qaeda but that the entire “Arab winter” operation we are seeing, the unraveling of any movement remotely resembling “popular government,” is simply a rerun of the post 9/11 Bush/Blair “heist” sold to the public as the “war on terror.”
The US-built armor and transportation handed over to the ISIL in Mosul is far from the first help they have received “Made in USA.” From Veterans Today correspondent, Jeffrey Silverman reporting from the Republic of Georgia:
“The supposedly captured US Humvees his troops have taken to Syria are purported to be the inanimate equivalents of the US hostages held for so long in Iran in the late seventies. However, the track record of al-Shishani himself, and the various players in the region, indicates that something else is going on. The US-backed rebels are losing ground in Syria. ISIL, though presented as the enemy in northern Iraq, has been installed there to finish the job the original rebels have proved unable to. The capture of the equipment is in fact a strategic handover. It serves two purposes: to equip the anti-Assad forces and to provide cover for equipment being brought out of Afghanistan and handed over to ISIL. It will be said, if anyone notices, that this equipment must have been stolen from northern Iraq, because we have seen this happen on TV, and CNN says so!”
PAVING THE WAY
Unseen by constellations of surveillance satellites and dozens of American drones, the ISIL, the Chechen led “militant” army simply walked into and across Iraq. Though Israel, the US and Saudi Arabia monitor all communications in the region, though armies of “assets” line every road and infest every village, it was all unseen, unheard, and to anyone who understand military operations, unbelievable. The operational scope seen in the current two front war waged by what we are told is a Takfiri-led movement steeped in religious and tribal extremism. Though this is true to an extent and certainly a factor in recruiting fighters, the “taskings” the ISIL has followed are global, clearly economically driven and tied to an agenda more closely aligned with Wall Street than their secret Saudi paymasters.
With a majority Shiite population and a newly established tradition of voting along religious lines, the idea of a Sunni minority taking control of Iraq is a pipe dream. This is what makes the current attacks something very different than they seem. With Kurdistan aligned, for the time at least, with Baghdad, the real target, Kirkuk and its vast oil fields, should well be outside the ability of the ISIL, no matter how much help they receive from disaffected Sunnis in Iraq, to move against. Yet the Kirkuk fields and the end hub of the Kirkuk, Baku, Ceyhan Pipeline is the obvious target. As long as these assets along with the oil fields to the South, Basra, are producing, Iraq can and will weather this current storm, providing realistic political reforms are put on the table.
What is yet to be seen is how far those who seek to destroy Iraq are willing to go, what they have promised and to whom. Iraq has known war, a decade of war with Iran and another against the United States. No nation in recent history has known comparable suffering, not even Vietnam. There will be no winners if Iraq comes apart, Gordon Duff concludes his article.

‘ISIL: Devil-dolls of the CIA’
Dr. Kevin Barrett in his article titled ‘ISIL: Devil-dolls of the CIA’, asked: Did you know that the CIA manufactures terrorist devil-dolls? He writes, according to the Washington Post, CIA operatives have admitted that they fabricated Osama Bin Laden devil-dolls as part of a psychological warfare operation against Pakistan. The dolls looked like Bin Laden – at first. But Bin Laden’s face was painted with heat-dissolving material designed to peel off and reveal the face of the devil. Terrorizing Pakistani children with Osama Bin Laden devil dolls – it’s all in a day’s work for the CIA.
But wait a minute – wasn’t Osama Bin Laden himself a sort of CIA devil-doll? Bin Laden’s career as a self-professed jihadi began when he was recruited by the CIA and its Saudi proxies to fight against the Soviet occupiers in Afghanistan. Under the code name “Tim Osman” he toured US military bases and received insurgency training from the CIA.
Later, during the 1990s, Osama Bin Laden was manipulated by the CIA (or its Zionist faction) into becoming a plausible patsy for the coming wave of false-flag terrorism designed to ignite a clash of civilizations. As the Muslim world listened to Bin Laden’s eloquent litany of grievances against the West, it was shown a handsome, bearded face with large, soulful eyes. The Western world, however, was shown a demonic caricature – a devil doll created for propaganda purposes.
On September 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center skyscrapers were blown up in explosive controlled demolitions, many observers claimed to see a bearded, demonic face in the pyroclastic smoke and dust clouds billowing from the exploding buildings. According to the ensuing wave of propaganda from the Zionist-dominated corporate media, the face of the devil behind the murder of 3,000 people on 9/11 was Osama Bin Laden.
The real Bin Laden repeatedly denied any involvement in the 9/11 attacks – just as he swore on a Qur’an that he had nothing to do with the African embassy bombings that preceded 9/11, according to Pakistani General Hamid Gul. (Gul argues that the Israeli government perpetrated both crimes.) But in the Western corporate media, the Bin Laden devil doll – the new icon of Islamophobia – would always be blamed, even though the FBI still insists that Bin Laden was never wanted for 9/11 because there was never any evidence of his involvement.
Today, it appears that the Zionist wing of the CIA is still in the business of manufacturing terrorist devil dolls. The latest set of devil dolls is ISIL, the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. These devil dolls come nattily dressed in brand new identical black uniforms and ski masks, sort of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles only much darker. They appear to have been manufactured by Central Casting in Hollywood, which specializes in the fabrication of villains who are as perfectly-attired as they are utterly despicable.
The stunningly photogenic devil-doll villains of ISIL are perfect for their parts. They play the role of “evil radical Muslim extremists” with aplomb: They indiscriminately lop off heads, rip internal organs out of corpses and devour them for the cameras, enthusiastically engage in mass executions and other war crimes, and impose a harsh misinterpretation of “Islamic law” on the miserable people who are unlucky enough to fall under their jurisdiction.
The ISIL devil dolls are a walking, talking psychological warfare operation against Islam in general, and the Islamic duty of jihad in particular. Most Westerners do not realize that the term “jihad” simply means struggle or striving – both the struggle to be a better person, and the struggle to defend the community against aggression. The military dimension of jihad comes with a long list of conditions, restrictions, and requirements for good behavior. The Islamic rules of jihad are very similar to the “just war” doctrines of Christianity: Noncombatants must not be harmed, property must not be damaged or destroyed, the war must clearly have a just cause (such as defense against an aggressor) and so on.
Thanks to the CIA’s “jihadi” devil dolls, most of the Western public now believes that “jihad” means raping nuns, crucifying priests, devouring the livers of corpses, mass-executing people whose only crime is to profess a different religion or school of thought, and generally engaging in criminal aggression and wildly un-Islamic battlefield behavior. No wonder much of the West thinks Muslims are crazy. No wonder much of the West supports an endless war on Islam whose only beneficiary is global Zionism.
By manufacturing “jihadi” devil dolls, the Western masters of psychological warfare hope to delegitimize jihad. They want to disarm the world’s Muslims. They want to convince the world that “defending oneself while Muslim” is a crime, just like “driving while black” is a crime in some racist US jurisdictions. They want to create a world in which any Muslim who even thinks about defending Islam or the Muslim community or any Islamic country against aggression will be a legitimate target for a drone strike.
The CIA’s terrorist devil dolls will never succeed in defending Islam. They will never succeed in creating a viable Islamic state. They will never succeed in winning the hearts and minds of either the Muslim or the non-Muslim global population. Their role is to create fitna (bloody chaos) in Islamic lands, which actually reduces the ability of those countries to defend themselves against aggression.
Perhaps the world’s Muslims should manufacture a new toy for mass distribution in the United States of America: A doll representing a Takfiri kharajite terrorist, like ISIL or the so-called Pakistani Taliban. The “jihadi” face would consist of heat-dissolving paint. It would peel off to reveal the face of a CIA agent like Raymond Davis, the false-flag terrorist captured in Pakistan; or better yet, the face of Benjamin Netanyahu, the man who launched the phony “war on terror” in 1979 at the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism (JCIT).
Imagine the surprise of American children who, while playing with their new “jihadi” dolls, would suddenly witness the dolls’ faces peeling off to reveal the hideous visage of Netanyahu. But this plan would be cruel and unfair to American children. It is American adults who need to see who is really behind the wave of devil-doll “jihadi” terrorism that is laying waste to the Middle East, concludes Dr. Kevin Barrett, a Ph.D. Arabist-Islamologist, and one of America’s best-known critics of the War on Terror.
