Zionism And ISIS: Antagonists or Two Mirror Images?
Over the past decade, the Middle East — the birthplace of the three major monotheistic religions — has become a flashpoint for extremism and terrorism. The general public has become accustomed to associating radicalism with Islam, even to such a degree that the general perception is that Islamic faith is a religion of the expression of extremism and terrorism. But unfortunately such analyses have failed to take into account the real horrifying radical threat that has been unfolding in the region for decades — Zionism.
Zionism is the greatest threat to humanity ; it is responsible for the terrorism and religious extremism that is going on in the Middle East. Zionism remains a bitter reality that the international community cannot afford to ignore, particularly since its core ideology is entirely based on the annihilation of an entire Muslim community in the region at least.The rise of Zionism is not a mere Palestinian issue; the Zionist occupation of Palestine is the first step towards the creation of Greater Israel.
Since the emergence of ISIS on the scene, Muslims worldwide have been criticised with the claim that this terror group represents Islam.Therefore, the argument goes, it is proof that Islamic faith is inherently aggressive and every effort should be made to stop Islamic faith from spreading. ISIS is in fact anti- Islamic militant organization created by Israel under ‘The Zionist Plan’.
In 1982 Oded Yinon, an Israeli journalist with intimate ties with the Israeli Foreign Ministry, constitued The Zionist Plan for the Middle East, proposing “that all the Arab states should be broken down, by Israel, into small units” and the “dissolution of Syria and Iraq later on into ethnically or religiously unique areas such as in Lebanon. The destruction of the Arab and Muslim states, Yinon suggested, would be accomplished from within by exploiting their internal religious and ethnic tensions.
ISIS stands for Israeli Secret Intelligence Service — not Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. This acronym very truly depicts the heinous Zionist motives, both in its ideology and its policies. The ISIS is a Jews-made weapon for the genocide of muslims and Christians. Zionism and ISIS are the two sides of the same coin ; both are the mirror images of each other. The genesis of ISIS also serves an another important task for Zionism to distort the public image of Islam and to cultivate Islamophobia sentiments across the globe.
ISIS is a barbarous terrorist organization that seeks its legitimacy through Islamic theology and shows itself as an Islamic State having a leader with a beard and dressed in Islamic garb. In fact it is an anti- Islamic militant organization of the Jews. In an incredibly barbarian way ISIS tortures and murders countless people, never Jews but rather exclusively Muslims and Christians.
ISIS made its emergence under the command of Abu Musab al Zarqawi, a Jordanian thug-turned- terrorist who brought and led a particularly brutal and sectarian approach. He was born in the industrial town of Zarqa, located about fifteen miles from Amman. Mary Anne Weaver in “The Short, Violent Life of Abu Musab al Zarqawi” writes: “In his hometown, Zarqawi was not known as an especially pious person, but as a heavy drinker, a bully, and a brawler”.
Zarqawi’s biographer, Jean-Charles Brisard reports in ” The New Face of Al-Qaeda” “Those who knew him in Zarqa said he drank like a fish and was covered in tattoos, two practices forbidden by Islam. He was known as the ” green man” on account of the tattoos. He was arrested a number of times, for shoplifting, drug dealing, and attacking a man with a knife, among other crimes.”
American Foreign Policy magazine’s Editor for Middle East, David Kenner, who visited Zarqa in Jordan and met in person with a group of young ISIS supporters states: “None of them appeared to be particularly religious”. Kenner noted :“Not once did the conversation turn to matters of faith, and none budged from their seats when the call to prayer sounded.”
After the death of Zarqawi appeared the current self declared caliph of ISIS? Who is this brutal natured commander of ISIS?
Former US National Security Agency employee Edward Snowdennow living in Russia, has revealed that ISIS is the creation of the spy agencies of Israel (Mossad), the United States (CIA) and Britain (MI6) as part of a strategy called “the hornet’s nest”. The aim of the “Hornet nest” is to attract Islamic militants to one region in order to track them easily and mostly to shake the stability of Arab countries.
Snowden also revealed that the leader of ISIS, presented as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is not Muslim; his real name is Elliot Shimon, a Mossad trained agent and he was born to Jewish parents. Elliot Shimon was recruited by the Israeli Mossad and was trained in espionage and psychological warfare against Arab and Islamic societies.The so-called Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi “took intensive military training for a whole year in the hands of the Israeli intelligence, Mossad.” Besides military training, Al Baghdadi studied courses in theology and mastered communication and public speaking skills in order to attract “terrorists” from all the corners of the world” , the documents state.He was presented to the world as a Caliph, dressed in Islamic garb and having full beard so that Muslim youth all over the world would promptly respond to his call to slaughter people.
The information disclosed by Snowden about ISIS and al-Baghdadi matches with information from other reliable sources and all demonstrate ISIS as a Zionist military organization.
Moshe Sharett – Zionist leader, first Foreign Minister and second Prime Minister of the State of Israel- writes in his diary about Zionist plan for Arab states. “Sharett’s diary reveals in explicit language that the Israeli political and military leadership never believed in any Arab danger to Israel,” writes Ralph Schoenman. “They sought to maneuver and force the Arab states into military confrontations which the Zionist leadership were certain of winning so Israel could carry out the destabilization of Arab regimes and the planned occupation of additional territory.”
Yasmina Haifi, a project leader at the Dutch Justice Ministry’s National Cyber Security Center, made the assertion in August 2014 on Twitter, which was also reported by De Telegraaf daily: “ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It’s part of a plan by Zionists who are deliberately trying to blacken Islam’s name”.Haifi was suspended from her job as a punishment for making such a statement.
Misrepresenting the name “Islamic State,” ISIS is rather a terrifying criminal gang that affiliates itself to noble symbols of Islam. Islam, a religion of peace, in fact prohibits the extremism exhibited by ISIS. An essential part of the faith is moderation. As the Quran, Islam’s foundational holy text, states clearly: “We made you to be a community of the middle way, so that (with the example of your lives) you might bear witness to the truth before all mankind.” (Quran, 2:143). Islamic faith promotes a moderate, peaceful vision of Islam that disavows the violence and apostasy that ISIS thrives on.
The Holy Quran also states: “O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both.” (Quran, 4:35)
Islamic jihad–the very opposite of religious extremism ISIS stands for– is one of the fundamentals of Islamic faith. Jihad literally means to struggle, strive and exert effort. It is a central and broad Islamic concept that encompasses struggle against evil tendencies within oneself, struggle to augment the quality of life in society, struggle in the battlefield for self-defense and struggle against tyranny or oppression.
Whilst Islam permits legitimate self defense, it does prohibit the massacre of non-combatants, even in hours of war or conflict. Aggression in any shape is strongly prohited: “And fight in the cause of Allah those who fight against you, and do not commit aggression. Indeed Allah does not love those who are aggressors,” (The Quran, 2:190).
There should, therefore, remain no ambiguity regarding the true identity of ISIS as a double-edged sword against Islam for mercilessly killing Muslims on the one hand and creating Islamophobia sentiments across the planet, especially in the USA, where Islam is getting more popularity these days, on the other hand.The violence and terrorism of ISIS are strange to and in fact anti Islam. The ISIS’s ruthless massacre of innocent people has nothing to do with Islamic creed, Sharia, ethic, history, and civilization. ISIS ( Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) is rather a great conspiracy against Islam; it is wholly devoted to accomodate a confluence of interests of zionism for catering to the hegemonic aspirations of Greater Israel.
