It is actually deeply ironic that the biggest winner in the creation of a “fanatic” Islamic state in the Middle-East is no less than the very enemy of virtually every state in the region! When you put all the pieces together, it’s very clear that the rise of ISIS must have been choreographed in Israel. It is all coming together beautifully, per my prior blogs.
I have written about key elements of support for ISIS from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the CIA in the past on this website. But what is now abundantly clear – with the invasion of Gaza – is that the strings of support for ISIS were actually held in Israel. Gaza confirms what the underlying strategy has been, all along. And we all know that a truce in Gaza is NOT the end-game. This invasion will continue into Lebanon -with Hamas being defeated – and a pro-Israeli (secular) government put in place there. And, we have reports today that ISIS is planning a major offensive on Aleppo in Syria (with a vision of eventually capturing all of Syria between Lebanon and Turkey)! The whole map of the region will be redrawn – per the new maps I have provided in my prior blogs.
Yes, the CIA was arming them with used arms from Libya being transshipped through Benghazi. Yes, the Saudi’s and Qatari’s are providing ISIS with cash. And it is absolutely true that the Gul/Erdogan regime in Turkey has also been a key supporter of ISIS. Why, oh Why?
In politics you always have to ignore rhetoric and see what is done! In the immortal words of Deep Throat – follow the money.
It’s all about Pipelines. Israel is planning to connect into Turkey’s Nabuco pipeline (across Lebanon and Northern Syria (in ISIS territory). And Saudi Arabia and Qatar will be doing the same (across ISIS territory) to Turkey! Russia’s stranglehold on European gas sales will be choked off – and new ‘friendly’ suppliers will be established from the Middle East! That is the plan. Trillions of dollars are at stake.
So what has Gaza have to do with it? Israel’s biggest regional threat is Iran. And Iran was developing a controlling regional dominance – from Iraq through Syria to Lebanon. Stopping Israeli, Saudi Arabian and Qatari pipelines. And also, constraining Turkey’s income from what is now an underused (40% utilized) Nabuco Pipeline. Iran’s regional domination had to be ‘stopped’ – and Iran’s support for Syria’s Assad regime had to be diminished.
But if the grand plan involves invading Lebanon – and smearing Hezbollah. Then Iran too would be pushed into defacto direct war with Israel. Israel could NOT simply take on Hezbollah, Syria and Iran in one shot – and at the same time fight a war on its other border with their ally Hamas in Gaza.
The creation of ISIS – beyond grabbing key strategic territory for pipelines – completely retards Iran’s ability to put men and armaments on the ground and take on Israel. It simply neutralizes Iran. Iran can’t do a damn thing about Gaza! And Hezbollah doesn’t dare get involved too – fearing a war on two fronts. No-one can do a damn thing about Gaza – while ISIS is around controlling key strategic territory.
Gaza is the test case of ‘involvement’. Israel’s calculations have been brilliant – and all its allies have done their part. Mark my words, Gaza is the beginning – not the end. And the creation of ISIS plays beautifully into their regional strategy.
As an Iranian, I am still not sure what the hell Iran is doing in the Middle-East versus central Asia. Why, oh why is Iran even tangled with Hezbollah, Hamas, Iraq and Syria? Let Arabs betray each other, Persians don’t need to get involved.
Iran’s interests are in Central Asia – we should be pushing for hegemony of the Caspian Sea (and its littoral states: Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan etc.) – and Persian-fone regions like Tajikistan, Afghanistan etc. Iran’s interests are in Central Asia. Iranians have no bone to pick with Israel.
In the final analysis, Iran’s recent “Shiite” façade and alliance with other “Shiites” in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq is simply a façade. And Israel’s plan will surely win. My prediction is that Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, and ISIS’s control of Northern Syria will come to pass. Inaction and impotence versus Israel on the invasion of Gaza proves it.
In prior blogs, I have expressed how beautiful (and easy) it would be if ISIS could be pushed South to Saudi Arabia! But Israel seems to be controlling the whole region beautifully. And right now, no one can do a damn thing about it.
And for now, we also have definite proof that the Israelis have truly cemented their alliance with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey. And if you already did not know, the CIA has turned out to be an extension of Israel’s military operation, by arming ISIS.
