"Blinded by their hatred of the Iranian Islamic
Republic, the Saudis financed and armed ISIL, and put
pressure on Sunni rebels in Iraq to align with the terror group. ... By supporting
ISIL against al-Qaeda and helping it take over groups
affiliated with al-Qaeda in Syria and in Iraq, Saudi 'strategists' believed
they had diverted a 'jihad' involving their country. Now they find that they've
hatched a force with the ambition of rallying all Muslim lands under its banner,
including Saudi Arabia."
Without the massive and multifaceted aid
lavished on it by Saudi Arabia, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [ISIL] could not have become this war machine which, after
having routed the Iraqi Army and taken control of the Sunni-dominated areas of
Iraq, has proclaimed the creation of a "Muslim caliphate" and called
all believers to swear their allegiance.
It has therefore been thought that the recent
turn of events in Iraq has filled the emirs of Saudi Arabia with joy. Yet that
is not the case, as panic prevails in Riyadh, where the success achieved by ISIL is regarded as a threat to the kingdom. The panic that
has set in among Saudi emirs is such that they have deployed
over 30,000 troops along the
kingdom's border with Iraq, are consideringseeking Jordanian military support on bended knee, and even the Zionist
state [Israel] has indicated it anticipates such a request, and is
prepared to provide military assistance to "moderate" Arab states that
feel threatened by the Islamist group's expansion.
In coming to this conclusion, Saudi Arabia is
acknowledging its role in the creation of a "monster" that has now
escaped its influence, the proof being the creation of a "Muslim caliphate,"
the premise of which denies the leadership of the Saudi monarchy, which believes
it has the right to
exercise influence over the Muslim world as sovereign ruler in the land of Islam's holy places. Blinded by their hatred of the
Iranian Islamic Republic, the Saudis financed and armed ISIL,
and put pressure on Sunni rebels in Iraq to align with the terror group,
calculating, behind the scenes, that such a force would be satisfied with establishing
a more equal balance of power for Sunnis in Iraq by bringing down the sectarian
regime of Nouri al-Maliki. In proclaiming the birth of a "Muslim
caliphate" that seeks the submission of all Muslims, including the Saudis,

By supporting ISIL
against al-Qaeda and helping it take over
groups affiliated with al-Qaeda in Syria and in Iraq, Saudi
"strategists" believed they had diverted a "jihad"
involving their country. Now they find that they've hatched a force with the
ambition of rallying all Muslim lands under its banner, including Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi monarchy doesn't admit to its responsibility, even if ISIS' rise to
power proves it. Instead, it now seeks to protect itself by trying to turn the
other factions of the Sunni rebellion against ISIL,
going to great lengths to grant only them financial and military aid. The
creation of a "Muslim caliphate" is a great danger to the Wahhabi monarchy, so it comes as no surprise that it's prepared
to join any coalition seeking to stifle the project - even if it finds itself siding
with those it supported ISIS to oppose.
The Arab world certainly owes its chaotic
situation to the cynical plans concocted by America and its Western allies to restore
it to chaos, but Saudi Arabia has played an overwhelming role in this by being the
tireless backer, purveyor and supplier of all things great and small contributing
to the plans' implementation. The irony is that the Saudi monarchy persists in
helping foment this chaos, thinking that the maintenance of the "American
umbrella" will shield it from the epidemic. In so doing, it fails to realize
that if chaos prevails in Syria, Iraq and Jordan, which are not "shielded,"
it will inevitably spill across and overwhelm the peninsula.
