Truth Uncovered: The Origin of ISIS

“Declare Allah the greatest! Allah is the greatest”. Well these are the lines recited by the most wealthy terror group, “ISIS or the Islamic State”. The name ‘ISIS’ is really trending among the people globally. We know ISIS was not formed in a single day. Where does the Islamic State came from? Who created them? You need to know the truth.

Today, ISIS is the biggest threat to national security of any country. Known for the mass execution, ISIS is the most brutal savage group with the prime motto clearly indicated in the first line of the article.

To know the origin of the Islamic State we need to understand the two major story lines. First one, the US action which destroyed Iraq, toppled Saddam Hussein, and completely damaged the Iraqi society. Many people who lived under Saddam were seen as enemies, US military treated them very badly. So, US created conditions in Iraq to get ISIS start in.

The other story is to understand that even with Saddam gone; ISIS couldn’t have risen to power. ISIS begun as a small insurgent group in Iraq in 2006, they had no money, no real ability to recruit but they did work to create limited problems to US military. In 2009, ISIS shifted their focus from Iraq to the civil war in Syria. There also they struggled to gain popularity because of the two largest groups, Al-Qaeda and Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighting against the President Bashar-Al-Assad. In June 2013, northern General of FSA asked International help in order to make their rebel a success to overthrow the Syrian President. Well, within just a matter of weeks of plea by Syrian General; the US, the Saudis, Jordan, Qatar, Turkey and Israel began providing weapons, training and money to the FSA.

In Sept 2013, American media started reporting that Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) funded weapons have started flowing to Syrian rebels. Weapons were not American made but funded and organized by CIA. The weapons that insisted to be used by freedom fighters were in hands of ISIS in less than a year.

So, where these fighters came from? Actually from the Free Syrian Army, the group with a motto to help US in overthrowing ‘Assad’ started giving and selling weapons and sending fighters to join with the new group called the Islamic State. It was in June 2014 when suddenly after being no name group in Syria; ISIS emerged heavily armed, trained by US and coalition special forces. Crossing back the Syrian border to Iraq, capturing the northern part of the country, ISIS became the new face of terror. The fact is that ISIS was able to grow fast because of all the US military equipment they seized that was left in Iraq after the war. Also, media ignored the videos and posts made by ISIS with the US military equipments.

Who is responsible for the creation of ISIS? It’s the product of direct action of America. First the action of creating a power vacuum in Iraq and secondly are the mean violent jihadists hoping they would overthrow a leader in a neighboring Middle East country. USA is responsible for the formation of the wealthiest terror group. ISIS make a profit 2 million dollars daily by selling oils. Also, US used to send funds of several hundred million dollars to Free Syrian Army to fight ISIS after knowing that the latter is the biggest suppliers of fighters and weapons to the terror group.

US government is a victim of its own insane policies and Americans are the hostage as they are the tax payers.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Tuesday lifted a ban on international flights to two airports in Erbil and Sulaimaniyah in the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan.

A statement by his office said Abadi signed a decree to lift the ban after receiving positive response from the Kurdish local authorities “to restore the federal authority in the two airports in accordance with the Constitution of Iraq”.

Abadi made the announcement during his meeting with the officers of the regional Interior Ministry who were working at the two airports, Xinhua news agency cited the statement as saying.

He also said that a new security directorate will be established to protect the airports in the Kurdish region and it will be under command and control of the federal Interior Ministry.

All the regional airports and border crossings will be linked directly to the main control system in Baghdad, similar to what is done in the other Iraqi airports and crossing, the statement said.

He also talked about the security of airports.

The passports and national ID offices and the employees at the airports of Erbil and Sulaimaniyah will also be linked to the federal Interior Ministry, it added.

Tensions rose between Baghdad and the region of Kurdistan after the Kurds held a controversial referendum last September to approve the independence of the Kurdistan region and the disputed areas.

The Iraqi government later imposed the flights ban on the Kurdish region as part of a package of punitive measures that also included blocking all the border crossings outside the federal control.

The ban on international flights on the region’s international airports of Erbil and Sulaimaniyah forced passengers to apply for an Iraqi visa to transit through Baghdad and Basra international airports to go or leave the Kurdish region.

The independence of Kurdistan is opposed not only by the Iraqi central government, but also by other countries as it would threaten the territorial integrity of Iraq and undermine the fight against the terror group Islamic State.

Iraq’s neighbouring countries, especially Turkey, Iran and Syria, fear that the Iraqi Kurds’ pursuit of independence threatens their own territorial integrity by inspiring the Kurdish population in those countries to seek independence. IANS
