Iranian Video on Khamenei Website Implies US Created ISIS to Further Distract World From ‘Israeli Crimes’ (VIDEO)
A website associated with Iranian leader Ayatollah Khamenei implied the US had created the very ISIS terrorists it today bombs in Iraq and Syria as another means of distracting the world’s attention away from “Israeli crimes,” the Algemeiner has learned.
This is a part of the US’s decade long program of propping up terrorist groups, like Al-Qaeda, to distract from the focus on Israel in the media, the video alleges.
The video, posted to khamenei.ir, a website with an associated Twitter account also believed to represent the Iranian supreme leader, delves into what it claims is this history of the ISIS group, which it says came about as a result of the unlikely marriage between members of Iraq’s dislodged Ba’ath party and Islamic fundamentalists from Al-Qaeda.
This alliance and ultimate transmutation to ISIS occurred in the US Bucca prison, in Iraq, where the video says current ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi formed the bond between Ba’ath and Al-Qaeda to form ISIS. The video, whose credits include only khamenei.ir and features a putative automaton narrator, claims Baghdadi had been a “typical Ba’athi fellow” before he was radicalized in prison.
The video suggests the US was behind this association of Ba’ath and Al-Qaeda, later informing viewers that the US also claimed to have “accidentally” provided the burgeoning group with weapons. The video also claims the US trained groups in Syria to join ISIS.
Additionally, the video features Wesley Clark, former NATO supreme commander, explaining that ISIS was developed in part through funding that was directed at recruiting individuals to fight Hezbollah, the Lebanese group that is staunchly allied with Iran and Syrian President Bashar Assad, who Syrian rebels have unsuccessfully been trying to unseat for several years in a civil war that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.
It is worth noting that the video makes pains to insinuate that the US facilitated the formation of a terrorist menace to fight Iran’s Mideast allies: Assad and Hezbollah.
The video was posted just after ISIS claimed responsibility for attacks in Paris last Friday that killed 129 people.
