The so-called Islamic State is not what it claims to be. Like the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal nor has any reserves, the Islamic State is neither Islamic nor a state. It is a terrorist group that was created by US intelligence and Zionist-allied mercenaries, trained at CIA bases in Jordan, and unleashed on the people of Syria and Iraq to destabilize those countries in service to Israel.
The realist faction of the US ruling elite, represented by President Obama and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is genuinely alarmed by the rise of Islamic State. These realists believe the Middle East has already been sufficiently destabilized, so now it is time to move on to the real struggle against Russia, China, and the rising BRICS nations. They are concerned that Islamic State is becoming a Frankenstein’s monster that could wreak blowback on its creators.
But the ultra-Zionist faction, represented by AIPAC, JINSA, FDD (formerly PNAC) and the neoconservative dual citizens who dominate the Republican Party, loves Islamic State. For them, Islamic State is the best enemy that American taxpayers’ money can buy. It is the perfect vehicle for demonizing Islam and sealing the US-Israel relationship in American blood.
