Do you know why the whole “bomb the shit out of ISIS” narrative is completely false?
It’s because ISIS is clearly being funded by our “allies.” They slipped up recently though:
In a curious incident that is certain to provoke questions about the proximity, not to mention fund flow, between Israel and ISIS the former Israeli Defense Minister, cited by the Times of Israel, said that Islamic State terrorists have on at least one occasion “apologized” to Israel for mistakenly attacking IDF soldiers in the occupied Golan Heights. The disclosure may also provide some insight into why after reportedly attacking virtually every religion and ethnicity in the region, there have been virtually no documented attacks by the Islamic State on Israel or its citizens.
And the whole incident revealed that Israel directly communicates with the group:
Discussing the wider Israeli policy of “neutrality” in Syria, former defense minister Moshe Ya’alon accidentally admitted that Israel has an open communications channel with an Islamic State cell which operates in Gollan Heights.
“There was one case recently where Daesh opened fire and apologized,” Ya’alon said on Saturday, quoted by the Times of Israel.
Asked to expand on his controversial statement, Ya’alon’s office refused to elaborate. The IDF also declined to comment. Under Israeli law, any communication with terrorists is considered illegal, unless of course the Israel state covertly does not consider ISIS terrorists.
ISIS is allowed to operate in the middle-east to provide justification for further US/Israeli intervention in the area. They’re quite useful, which means that they’ll stick around the area for awhile.
Speaking of which, the United States has quietly deployed troops to Turkey:
The United States has deployed service personnel to Turkey’s border with Syria to serve as a buffer between Ankara-led forces and Kurdish fighters, a source with the People’s Protection Units (YPG) told Sputnik Turkey, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The United States is now actively supporting the Kurdish forces within Syria, but not the Kurdish forces within Turkey. (The Russians are doing that). The United States seems interested in creating problems for Assad and using the Kurds to do that. Will they offer autonomy for the Kurds when all is said and done? Doubtful.
Ankara views Kurdish militias, including the YPG, as terrorist organizations since they are ostensibly affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), a militant group fighting for greater Kurdish autonomy in southern Turkey. This concern was one of the reasons behind Ankara launching a large-scale military operation in the border region with Syria.
The region is a powder keg ready to blow.
America’s support of the Kurds bodes ill for Turkey, a member of NATO. Turkey is fighting America’s allies, while still allied with America against Assad. Confusing? Well it will all become clearer when these internal fights come to a place far closer to you.
As Germany scrambles to contain a diplomatic row with Turkey over a comedian’s mocking of President Tayyip Erdogan, officials are growing worried about another byproduct of their Faustian migrant pact with Ankara: an upsurge in violence between nationalist Turks and militant Kurds on German soil…
But the combination of rising violence in Turkey and Chancellor Angela Merkel’s controversial refugee deal with Ankara has raised the risk of a new wave of clashes, government and intelligence officials worry. “When you have a full blown civil war there, then there is the risk of direct transmission to German cities,” said a senior German diplomat on condition of anonymity. “This is the other side of Merkel’s refugee deal. It makes it all the more difficult to manage.”
The West is now internalizing these conflicts by importing the populations. And it’s not just Kurds vs Turks. It’s also Sunnis vs Shiites.
STOCKHOLM: Swedish authorities began an investigation into possible arson on Monday after a fire damaged the facade and roof of a Shiite mosque on the outskirts of Stockholm overnight, a police statement said. Nobody was injured in the fire in the Jarfalla suburb of the Swedish capital, it said. “The scene of the fire has been sealed off in anticipation of forensic tests,” it added. Swedish authorities are wary of possible reprisals after a man rammed a hijacked beer truck into a busy downtown pedestrian mall last month, killing five people. An Uzbek whose asylum request was rejected is being held as the main suspect. Islamic State, a radical Sunni group that has targeted Shiites in several countries, claimed responsibility for a fire last year at a small Shiite mosque in Malmo in southern Sweden. The main suspect in the case was accused on terrorism charges but has been acquitted.
Do you want to know what the future for Europe will look like? There will be raging turf wars between the migrants, and this will all be fueled by external state actors. Erdogan will use his German Turks to put pressure on Merkel. The PKK will use their German Kurds to raise the costs for German compliance with the Turks. The Sunnis will vie for dominance with the Shiites just about everywhere. European states will have to cut deals and pit one group against the other as their power slowly erodes through demographic replacement.
