Our Middle Eastern “Allies” Fund Terrorists Abroad So They Won’t Attack Them At Home

Top U.S. generals say that our closest Middle Eastern “allies” support ISIS.

The Independent reported last week:

Dr Mahmoud Othman, a veteran member of the Iraqi Kurdish leadership who recently retired from the Iraqi parliament, said there was a misunderstanding as to why Gulf countries paid off IS [the Islamic State]. It is not only that donors are supporters of IS, but that the movement “gets money from the Arab countries because they are afraid of it”, he says. “Gulf countries give money to Da’esh so that it promises not to carry out operations on their territory.”

It’s well-known by counter-terrorism experts that Saudi Arabia has long funded Al Qaeda, ISIS and other terrorists outside the country in order to dissuade them from attacking the Saudi monarchy itself.

    Anyone else notice the similarity to the way the Roman Empire used to pay the Goths, Huns, Vandals and other barbarians to stay away? Also the Anglo-Saxon payments to the Danish invaders (hence the term “Danegeld”). However, the practice has a rather obvious and unfortunate limitation. Not being stupid, the payees are bound to notice that the payer has lots of treasure, and (like blackmailers) demand more and more of it. Finally, they decide to cut out the middleman and just go in and help themselves. At which point, the payer gets his throat cut (or his head chopped off) – and serve him bloody well right.
