Jihadists beware: You are being used as pawns and useful idiots for a much deeper agenda. The evidence is clear, and the goals are relatively transparent.
The Obama administration plans to begin more military training and arming of “moderate” jihadists in Syria as soon as this week, according to U.S. defense officials cited in media reports. The U.S. government’s stepped-up military support for “vetted” Syrian jihadists is ostensibly aimed at helping them battle less moderate Islamists in ISIS — a terrorist group that both Vice President Joe Biden and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey have admitted was armed and funded by Obama’s “anti-ISIS” coalition in the war on Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed in an interview last month that the U.S. government had been providing support to Chechen Islamist militants in the northern Caucasus region. “Our security services recorded direct contact between North Caucasus fighters and representatives of U.S. intelligence in Azerbaijan,” Putin said in the film, adding that he informed then-President George W. Bush, who vowed to stop the support. Instead, Putin claimed, U.S. intelligence agencies wrote to Russian authorities and said they had a right to back all “opposition forces” in the country.
In other words, Muslims are being used as pawns. That much is clear.
Moscow, of course, has a long and sordid history of supporting, arming, training, and radicalizing Muslims for sinister purposes. “In 1972, the Kremlin decided to turn the whole Islamic world against Israel and the U.S.,” explained General Ion Mihai Pacepa, chief of the Communist Romanian regime’s intelligence services and arguably one of the most important defectors to the West. “As KGB Chairman Yuri Andropov told me, a billion adversaries could inflict far greater damage on America than could a few millions.” The details provided by Pacepa and other defectors make clear that the “Evil Empire” was crucial in the emergence of today’s Islamic terror threat.
Kremlin support for Islamic terrorists hardly ended with the supposed collapse of the Soviet Union. In fact, according to assassinated Russian defector Alexander Litvinenko, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, described as a “mastermind of 9/11” by U.S. officials, was actually trained by the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB, former KGB) in the late 1990s. The “Islamic” terrorist was then deployed to Afghanistan, where he became the al-Qaeda second-in-command, behind only Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden and his Islamic Mujahedeen, meanwhile, had long been supported by U.S. intelligence services in the 1980s and beyond, as senior Western officials have openly admitted.
In short, radical Muslims are being exploited by globalists to further an agenda that has little or nothing at all to do with Islam — except that Islamic scriptures purportedly provide the alleged justification for the terrorism.
The agenda behind globalist support of terror is relatively transparent, too. Among other goals: Promote globalism and regionalism as the solution, further empower the United Nations and its military and kangaroo “courts,” justify domestic police-state measures and the loss of civil liberties under the guise of “safety,” promote U.S.-Russian “intelligence and military cooperation” to combat the “shared threat” of Islamic terror, extract vast sums from the public to enrich cronies in the military-industrial complex and beyond, and much more. The ongoing extermination of ancient Christian communities in the Middle East is also one of the bitter fruits of globalist-backed Islamic terrorism.
While the evidence exposing the giant roles of Washington, D.C., and Moscow in fueling Islamic terrorism goes back decades, perhaps nowhere has the exploitation of Islamism for globalist purposes become clearer than in Libya and Syria. In both nations, the Obama administration, the United Nations, and the Council on Foreign Relations, a leading globalist powerhouse, have openly aligned themselves with jihadists and even self-styled al-Qaeda leaders to overthrow relatively secular dictatorships. In Libya, leaders of the UN- and Obama-backed “revolution” openly bragged of having recently battled U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. In Syria, the establishment brazenly backed jihadists to overthrow Assad, and continues to do so.
Now, the excuse for arming and training jihadists is battling more extreme jihadists, rather than Assad. According to media reports, the first of 400 U.S. military trainers have arrived in Turkey and Jordan to start training “Syrian rebels.” Also part of the package will be weapons, vehicles, communications equipment, and more. Officials are claiming that all of the training and weapons will be for “vetted” and “moderate” so-called rebels. However, Vice President Biden, along with many analysts and officials, has already discredited that false narrative. “The fact is, the ability to identify a moderate middle in Syria, um, was, uh — there was no moderate middle,” Biden admitted in a speech last year at Harvard.
The threat posed by the self-styled “Islamic State,” also known as ISIS, can also be traced straight back to globalist governments in the Middle East and beyond — especially Obama’s supposed “anti-ISIS” coalition. “What my constant cry was, that our biggest problem was our allies — our allies in the region were our largest problem,” Biden continued in the same speech, specifically identifying the U.S.-backed Islamist rulers of Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia, along with unspecified others such as Qatar, as the main culprits. “They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war.… They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad; except that the people who were being supplied were Al Nusra and Al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”
Of course, Biden did not mention the massive role of the CIA and the State Department in the process, but that has been well documented by countless sources including this magazine. “Now you think I’m exaggerating — take a look,” Biden continued. “Where did all of this go? So now what’s happening? All of a sudden everybody’s awakened because this outfit called ISIL [ISIS], which was Al Qaeda in Iraq, which when they were essentially thrown out of Iraq, found open space in territory in eastern Syria, work with Al Nusra who we declared a terrorist group early on, and we could not convince our colleagues to stop supplying them.” U.S. General Dempsey confirmed all of that in a Senate hearing after being asked if he knew of any “major Arab ally” that embraces ISIS. “I know of major Arab allies who fund them,” Dempsey explained.
ISIS itself is an offshoot of al-Qaeda, which itself was largely the product of globalist scheming, including support from the U.S. government and its allies, and more recently, the Kremlin. As The New American explained in an in-depth article highlighting the origins of the Islamic terrorist group, Western officials have admitted the U.S. role. “We had this brilliant idea that we were going to come to Pakistan and create this force of Mujahedin [Islamic holy warriors that spawned al-Qaeda], equip them with stinger missiles and everything else, … and we were successful,” said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in one of her many admissions of the U.S. role in creating al-Qaeda. “Now you look back, the people we’re fighting today, we were supporting in the fight against the Soviets.”
The Soviets and their brutal communist allies around the world, though, who also benefited from tremendous U.S. government support under various pretexts, also played an essential role in fomenting today’s Islamic terror threat. “In the mid-1970s, the KGB ordered my service, the [Romanian intelligence agency] DIE — along with other East European sister services — to scour the country for trusted party activists belonging to various Islamic ethnic groups, train them in disinformation and terrorist operations, and infiltrate them into the countries of our ‘sphere of influence,’” revealed General Pacepa, the Communist Romanian spy chief who defected to the West and spilled the beans. “Before I left Romania for good, in 1978, my DIE had dispatched around 500 such undercover agents to Islamic countries. According to a rough estimate received from Moscow, by 1978 the whole Soviet-bloc intelligence community had sent some 4,000 such agents of influence into the Islamic world.”
Another one of the most important Soviet intelligence defectors, KGB disinformation specialist Anatoliy Golitsyn, also blew the whistle on the Kremlin’s efforts to create and use Islamic terrorism to advance global totalitarianism. “Under concealed Russian guidance, the Muslims of the former Soviet Union ... will seek to cooperate and ally themselves with Muslims in Iran and the Arab states while Russia maintains its open policy of cooperation and partnership with the West,” Golitsyn revealed in his explosive 1995 book The Perestroika Deception. “In this way China openly and Russia secretly will jointly attempt to swing the balance of power in their favor in the highly strategic, oil-producing Arab/Iranian areas of the Middle East.”
More recently, Russian FSB defector Litvinenko, who was poisoned in London after defecting in 2000 and exposing the Kremlin’s ongoing subversion, revealed that Moscow’s exploitation of jihadists was still happening. “Ayman al-Zawahiri [the al-Qaeda boss] trained at a Federal Security Service base in Dagestan in 1998,” he said in an explosive interview with the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita. “He was then transferred to Afghanistan, where he became Osama bin Laden's deputy.” Of course, there are mountains of evidence suggesting that Litvinenko’s revelations were accurate. False-flag Islamic terrorism has also been used to justify Kremlin scheming.
Whether Putin’s recent claims about U.S. government support for Islamists in Chechnya are correct or not matters little. There is so much documentation and so many official admissions of U.S. support for Islamists that the latest claim is minor and insignificant by comparison. In fact, in recent years, Obama’s support for jihadists has become so brazen that many top analysts and senior military officials have concluded that he “switched sides” in the supposed terror war. That support for Islamic radicals continues, most recently with the news of more training for jihadists in Syria — despite the fact that the administration’s pro-jihadist machinations have been exposed even in Congress and in the mainstream press.
It is true that many scriptures in the Islamic holy book command Muslims to wage jihad against infidels — a command many Muslims have obeyed for more than 1,000 years, stretching all the way back to the Islamic prophet Muhammed. But that is not the primary threat facing the world, the West, or even freedom. The far more serious danger is the forces exploiting and creating Muslim terrorists for nefarious purposes — summarized simply as global tyranny. The agenda is now in full swing. And if Americans and the West hope to remain free, it will have to be exposed and ultimately crushed.
