Russian Documentary Shows ISIS Documents of Turkey’s Assistance

Russian Television is starting a series of documentaries showing captured ISIS documents, and Turkish-border-stamped passports of ISIS fighters. The initial news-report also refers to a ‘fatwa’ that allegedly allows infidels to be killed to supply fresh organs for transplantation into severely injured ISIS fighters. 

Invoices are shown for records of Syrian oil trucked into Turkey for sale, which indicate “the name of the driver, the vehicle type driven, and the weight of the truck, both full and empty, as well as the agreed upon price and invoice number. One of the discovered invoices dated 11 January, 2016, says that IS had extracted some 1,925 barrels of oil from Kabibah oil field and sold it for $38,342.” Turkey then sells it for far more — the current market-price.

Also shown is “Islamist propaganda printed in Istanbul.” 

The U.S. supplies ISIS through Turkey. Furthermore, Turkey is now a dictatorship, and its dictator, the fundamentalist-Sunni Tayyip Erdogan, is passionate to overthrow Syria’s leader, the secular Shiite Bashar al-Assad. ISIS is the main fighting force he works with to do that.

Allied with Turkey in this effort are: U.S., Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, and Kuwait.

Turkey and the U.S. are in NATO; the others are in the Saudi group, the Gulf Cooperation Council. (Turkey isn’t, because it’s not on the Persian Gulf. Turkey is instead the GCC’s representative in, or main link to, NATO. Turkey also is their link to the EU, but hasn’t yet entirely won membership in the EU.)

The royal Sauds are the main funders of Al Qaeda, known as Al Nusra in Syria; and, according to a cable from former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the entire Gulf Cooperation Council are heavy financial backers of not only Al Qaeda but other jihadist groups.

Earlier I headlined: “Western Reporter in Syria Finds U.S.-Backed Fighters Are Jihadists.” 

The foreign backers of the jihadist groups who have flocked into Syria to overthrow Assad are U.S., Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, and Kuwait, and that includes the nations whose leadership back jihadists, even while they need to make propagandistic statements and occasionally actions that kill some jihadists. 

The central targets of that alliance are Russia and Iran. Assad, of course, is allied to both Russia and Iran.

    Thank you, Eric! The endgame will include an “Emperor’s New Clothes” demand for arrests, as willing minions break-out of their service to evil and voice overwhelming damning evidence of the .01% crimes centering in war and money.

    May you enjoy the paradox of “patient activism” 🙂

    You know it is really the stench of fascism that fills the air when the squealing pigs unleash their gases and sprays, spreading mayhem, lies and murder and when the truth is of no consequence whatsoever, not even mentioned by the corpofascist presstitutes pouring their filth into the hog trough of the “media”. Then you have precisely those rights and only those rights which you are prepared to fight and die for. USSA will explode in an orgy of violence and despair like every other Third World oppressed country on the planet before it.

    Why does the author insist on framing everything Islam as a Sunni-Shia paradigm?

    The new Turkish dictator is overseeing injustice and the wrongful killing of thousands in the region, be they Muslim or not. This is “fitnah” or “dhulm”.

    How is it fundamentalist — or Sunna, for that matter — to do precisely what is forbidden in Islam?

    These are the traits of radicals and hypocrites — “wolves in sheep’s clothing.”

    A suspected Islamic State operative in Pakistan, Yousaf al Salafi, confesses to recruiting jihadists to fight in Syria, and says he received funds, wired through the U.S. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan reports.

    And Turkey is a former NATO member that Obama 100% supports. Does this not make him and the whole of NATO guilty of genocide? Is NATO so obtuse that they cannot see that the objective of Erdogan is to create a caliphate in the Middle East, reviving the Islamic Empire? With a firm foothold into Europe, he can now carry out genocide against the Kurds with indiscretion, as the blindly stupid EU leaders will fall for his claim that he is combating ISIS, even though his army has been caught shooting at Kurds waving the white flag of surrender.

    Say what you want about Donald Trump, but he is absolutely right that we need to dump NATO. Since its inception, NATO has been nothing but a killing machine for the benefit of western oligarchs. I propose that Erdogan and every leader of NATO should be put on trial and given the Nuremburg treatment. We learned from the past that there are ways to deal with pieces of human filth; what more evidence do we need?
