British Parliament: Gulf States Financing ISIS Militants

Originally appeared at DWN, translated by Karin exclusively for SouthFront

According to a report of the British House of Commons, people and families from the Gulf States are financing the terrorist militia ISIS. Obviously the Arab royal houses have approved financing. Saudi Arabia is the closest ally of the US and the EU in the Middle East.

A British parliamentary report, which was published on Tuesday, concluded to have “historical evidence” for the financing of the terrorist militia ISIS by the Arab Gulf States. The British Foreign Office reported that individuals and families, who are linked to the royal family in Saudi Arabia, are actively involved in the financing of ISIS. The Foreign Affairs Committee of the British parliament calls in a final evaluation of the financing of ISIS for the need of  “tough questions to be asked of close friends”, when it comes to check how donations to ISIS have been made in Iraq and Syria. However, the Foreign Ministry in London points out that the ISIS-financing was not encouraged or supported by governments in the region. The donors in the region were individuals.

However, evidently the Saudi intelligence also played a major role in the expansion of ISIS. Prince Bandar bin Sultan, former ambassador to Washington and former intelligence chief of Saudi Arabia, is have to played a leading role in the “from ISIS led Sunni rebellion”, according to The Independent News. In addition, no donations to ISIS from Saudi Arabia would just flow spontaneously. Without a blessing of the Saudi royal family donations would not be possible to the terrorist militia.

Under the code name “Timber Sycamore” for years close intelligence cooperation between the US and the Gulf States exists. It began in the spring of 2013 with the massive arming of Islamist mercenaries for the Syria conflict, reports the New York Times. While the Saudis provide the money, the Americans take over the military training of mercenaries.

    Please, please, please, stop using the term “ISIS” for a horde of genetically spoiled fucktards!!!
    In ancient times Isis was a highly revered goddess in Egypt and Greece.
    “Isis was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic.” (Wikipedia)

    CIA dumbasses have deliberately chosen this name. By using the name “ISIS” for the terrorist organization you are actually supporting them energetically, because it is the name they have chosen to strengthen themselves. If you use other names (ISIL, Islamic State, IS, Daesh) instead, you are weakening their position:

      Sorry, Oli Gulliver. ALL the names used for ISIS are CIA psyop / MSM spew versions of what they want us to call it. They change the names periodically for a reason. When the change to IS flopped, they backpedaled and decided Daesh (meaningless to non-Arabic speakers) would be used instead. They’ll cook up another variant in a few months when it’s convenient.

      ONLY a dumbass would confuse the ISIS terrorist organization with the Egyptian goddess.

      I will continue to use ISIS specifically because the CIA and MSM don’t want us to. I refuse to empower them by dancing like a monkey every time they announce a new ‘preferred’ name for ISIS. Screw them. And using ISIS is not ’empowering’ them. According to the MSM, ISIS themselves changed their name to Islamic State over a year ago and prefers that name. Therefor, I will use ISIS if for no other reason but to spite them. It’s just a bonus that it also pisses off the MSM and the CIA.

        You really believe that “pisses” them off?

    • Hello. ISIS is not their name. It is an abbreviation for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. It fits them because, they actually do have a state there if you look at a map. They have banking institutions, taxes, currency, army, economics, hospitals, a trash system and so forth.
      They may be evil, but so is the UK-Empire. But none the less, like it or not, both of them exist. AT least till someone takes them out, or they crumble under the weight of their own oppression of their own peoples.
      #1 The fake-god Isis is the Greek form of an ancient Egyptian word for “throne”. Her name is actually Throne when translated properly.
      #2 She was the principal deity in rites connected with the dead. Which correlates well with ISIS, who is also about connecting people with the dead they create.
      #3 Isis is most often represented as a scorpion throughout history.
      #4 Isis reunited the parts of her dead husband’s body—only his penis was missing. Using her magical powers, she was able to make Osiris whole; bandaged, neither living nor dead, Osiris had become a mummy. Nine months later Isis bore him a son, Horus. Osiris was then forced to retreat to the underworld, where he became king of the dead.
      #5 Isis taught the women of Egypt that they should weave, bake, and brew beer. This is obviously oppression of woman’s rights, as we all know that woman should not have do anything in the kitchen. And weaving is just beneath a woman.

      However, Isis is a name among girls, and should not affect children. Same as a child named Adolf, which means (Noble-Wolf) should never be punished or persecuted just because of their name either. Only a bigot would confuse children’s names with historical figures.

      Note: About referencing Isis as a fake god. This information comes from the Egyptians themselves.
      More then 99% of all Egyptians will tell you that their ancestors made her up as fable. So I assure you, Isis is in no way offended. She is a statue that is crumbling. She is not an actual deity, only imagination. Like transformers in movies and batman, they are not real.

  • Actually, it is the UK-Empire that is financing ISIS. In-fact it is the UK-Empire that has been destroying Iraq for 100 solid straight years now.
    It is the UK-who props up Saudi Arabia, which supports ISIS funding.
    It is the UK who has carried out attacks against Irish, Americans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Syrians, Germans and so on and so on.
    The UK-loves chaos, cause that allows this particular branch of Zionist to flourish.
    The world will not know safety as long as Mi6 or SAS survive.
