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.

Civilians Who Fled Afrin Suffer from Dire Humanitarian Conditions

Thousands of civilians who fled the city of Afrin are enduring dire conditions after they reached Syrian-controlled areas south of the Afrin district.

“More than 2,000 people reached the towns of Nubl and Zahraa from Afrin in the past 24 hours, raising the number of total civilians in the two towns to 16,000. Many are suffering from tragic conditions,” according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights website.

Turkish media announced the control of Afrin on Sunday, after the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) withdrew from the city and thousands of civilians were evacuated — 59 days after the launch of Operation Olive Branch, the Turkish military operation in Afrin.

The Observatory said Nubl and Zahraa were struggling to provide shelter and food for the large numbers of displaced people pouring into the towns.

Sumama Al-Ashkar, a journalist in Nubl and Zahraa, told VOA that people were residing in houses, mosques, schools, public halls and warehouses.

“The civilians in Nubl and Zahraa are able to get some aid and services, but those who went to Tal Rifat in northern Aleppo are struggling to survive,” he said.

The U.S. State Department issued a statement on Monday expressing deep concern about reports coming from the predominantly Kurdish city in the past 48 hours.

“It appears the majority of the population of the city … evacuated under threat of attack from Turkish military forces and Turkish-backed opposition forces. This adds to the already concerning humanitarian situation in the area, with United Nations agencies reporting a displaced population in or from Afrin district in the hundreds of thousands, who now require immediate shelter and other assistance to meet basic needs,” the statement said.

Destruction and looting

A number of reports circulated in the media said Turkish-backed forces were destroying and looting public and private properties after they entered the city.

The Afrin media center said once the Turkish-backed fighters reached the town center, they destroyed a statue placed in the center of the city that represents Kurdish cultural figure Kawa the Ironsmith.

“Kawa the Ironsmith is a major historical symbol for the Kurdish people, as it is linked to the most important Middle Eastern holiday, the Nawruz,” Afrin Media Center said.

Footage coming from Afrin also showed Turkish-backed fighters pillaging homes, shops and military sites amidst chaos. They were seen carrying food, electronic devices, civilian cars, farmers’ tractors and livestock.

Members of the Syrian opposition condemned the looting and destruction of the city and called for holding the looters responsible for their acts.

The General Military Staff of the Syrian Interim Government, an alternative government of the Syrian opposition, issued a statement Monday calling for the Turkey-backed Syrian rebels to protect civilians and their properties, and to respect religious and ethnic installations in Afrin.

In a comment to CNN, Ibrahim Kalin, a spokesman for Erdogan, did not deny the reports of looting but said the actions were committed by some groups who disobeyed their commanders. He said reports were being investigated.

Guerilla war

On Sunday, Kurdish leader Saleh Muslim told ANF, the Kurdish News Agency, that the fight in Afrin entered a new phase, where the YPG and the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) will continue to resist in the district.

Muslim added that the civilians had to leave the city for their own protection and vowed to step up the fight.

“The existence of civilians in the city will impose a challenge for our fighters. Our enemy kills civilians and strikes hospitals, and since the Turkish offensive started, civilians were targeted. Now, the war will continue in a different way after civilians left the city,” Muslim said.

A number of humanitarian organizations and civil society groups working north and east of Syria, including the Kurdish Red Crescent, issued a joint statement calling on the international community to act.

“We plea to the international community to intervene immediately to stop these attacks and let the refugees return to their homes, protect their possessions and civil rights, and deliver aid to thousands of people [who] fled this war,” the statement said Monday. VOA
