They’re calling it a “win-win.” But the Iran nuclear deal could be a “lose-lose” for two leading Middle Eastern terrorist organizations: Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Jewish State in Occupied Palestine (JSOP).
Will terrorist leaders “Bibi” Netanyahu and “Caliph” al-Baghdadi call a joint press conference to denounce the deal?
The Iran nuclear deal represents an existential threat to these two terror organizations because it signals a possible change in Western policy away from the destabilization doctrine. Instead of pushing Balkanization and chaos, the West may now decide it can live with a reasonably stable Middle East. That would mean a long, slow recovery for the region from the wave of death and destruction that ensued from the Zionist genocide beginning in 1948, and the accelerated genocide provoked by the neocon coup d’état on September 11th, 2001.
Corollary: If the Middle East ever achieves peace and prosperity, JSOP, like ISIS, is doomed. The people of the region have never accepted JSOP aka “Israel” as a legitimate state; as the region becomes empowered and autonomous, JSOP will be “erased from the pages of time.”
Already we are seeing signs that the West may stop supporting ISIS, and instead support those fighting it (starting with the Islamic Republic of Iran and its ally Iraq). On the eve of the Iran nuclear deal, the US finally delivered long-promised F-16 fighter jets to Iraq. (Had those jets been delivered on time, ISIS never would have captured Iraqi territory.)
Will the West also stop its multi-billion dollar weapons deliveries to ISIS? If it decides to arm Iraq and not ISIS, instead of the other way around, the head-chopping bogeymen will soon vanish.
And will the West also stop supporting JSOP, and instead start delivering advanced weapons to Hamas and Hezbollah? One can only hope and pray.
Below is my interview with Press TV commenting on the belated delivery of F-16s to Iraq.
US more interested in helping ISIL than Iraq: Analyst
Press TV has conducted an interview with Kevin Barrett, an editor at VT in Madison, about the Iraqi government announcing that it has received the first batch of F-16 fighter jets from the United States.
The following is a rough transcription of the interview.
Press TV: The Iraqi government has received these F-16 fighter jets from the US. Why do you think this has been shipped to them at this time?
Barrett: Well it is interesting timing, isn’t it because those jets are years overdue. Apparently the US government has been much more interested in training and equipping groups like ISIL than in helping their supposed ally in Baghdad fighting against ISIL.
We have got all sorts of smoking guns that have come out in the last year and especially the last couple of months proving that indeed the US cautiously created ISIL. It was the smoking gun memo that Judicial Watch uncovered last May which said this was from 2012 and the US talked about then that they desired to “establish” a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in eastern Syria. And this is exactly what these supporting powers want – supporting powers being the US and its allies in the region.
So we now know as people like Rand Paul have publicly stated that ISIS is essentially the creation of the US and its regional allies and I think that perhaps at this point ISIS has worn out its usefulness. We are on the cusp of a nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 and it may be that western powers are ready to admit that their strategy of destabilizing the region by funding these extremist Salafist and Wahhabist groups against the various regional governments especially Syria, Iraq and ultimately Iran may have run its course. And one would hope so. This policy is the policy of the big lie which the West creates the very extremists that pretends to be fighting but it is also policy of complete destabilization designed to break up the countries of the region. This is in nobody’s interest except with the interest of the extremists in Tel Aviv and I hope the West has decided that that particular path is no longer viable.
