US, Israel, Saudi Arabia involved in creating ISIL: Former US Senate candidate
The United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia have been involved in creating the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group to overthrow the legitimate Syria government, a former US Senate candidate says.
“The United States has introduced all of these terrorists into Syria in conjunction with Israel and with Saud Arabia and Turkey and its abundantly clear that the aggressor in this entire situation has been the United States,” said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and pastor in San Antonio, Texas.
Washington has been “acting through these Takfiri extremists at the behest of Israel which wants a regime change in Syria as a prelude to improving their position for a potential attack on Iran,” Dankof told Press TV on Thursday.
Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The crisis has claimed the lives of more than 250,000 people so far and displaced millions of others.
US warplanes have been bombing purported Daesh positions in Iraq and Syria for over a year now. The US has largely limited its military role to “training” and “advising” Iraqi forces and militant units in Syria.
US President Barack Obama’s decision last month to deploy dozens of Special Operations forces to Syria to “advise” US-backed militants on the ground has reignited the long-stalled debate on war authorizing.
On Tuesday, US Senator Lindsey Graham said the US Congress is unlikely to reach an agreement on a war authorization against Daesh terrorists in Syria, where “the next 9/11 is coming from.”
“I think Democrats and a few Republicans have absolutely no clue as to the threats that we face,” the South Carolina Republican said, according to The Hill.
Dankof also asserted that Israel was the “driving force” behind the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the US in order to get the American public support for ongoing military interventions in the Middle East on behalf of the Zionist regime.
The former US Senate candidate rejected Graham’s warning about another 9/11-like attack coming from Syria, describing the single senator as a secret homosexual who is being blackmailed by the Israel lobby in order to hide his sexual orientation.
Graham, who has never been married and has no children, has been the subject of rumors for years for being a sexual deviant, Dankof said.
