There is a constant unending propaganda by the Russian and Iranian sympathizers linking the ISIS with Saudi Arabia, or calling it a creation of the U.S. and Israel.
The fact of the matter is that Mujahedeen were funded and created by the ISI CIA Joint operations to deal through covert means to defeat the USSR. This was effectively used against them, however, the offshoot of those Mujahedeen resulted in the shape of Taliban and Al Qaeda. The CIA did not foresee this.
In most FIRs (First Information Report) at a crime scene, the beneficiary to the crime is investigated. In the case of ISIS, can anyone lead me to identify the beneficiary where Sunni states or regions have been destabilized and their image has been tarnished through the criminal behavior of the ISIS. Why would Saudi Arabia or the U.S. tarnish the image of Sunnis, or destabilize Sunni states which in turn would benefit the Iranian block, for which Iran had been vying to promote pro Iran states based on their religious beliefs from Pakistan, all the way to Lebanon in the Middle East.
The Palestinian Arabs do not have Shia population in them, but the question arises as to why the Sunni Hamas gets financial and logistic support from the Iranians to perpetuate hostility with Israel by targeting them through uncalled for missile attacks. This resulted in heavy Palestinian losses due to reprisals by Israeli security forces. Where is the wisdom in such terrorist activities of the Sunnis in working on Iranian agenda? Iran has a history of fighting Sunni states. When was it in history that Iran fought for the rights of Sunnis? How could that history? change its course, resulting in Iranian logistic and financial support to Hamas in in love of a 100% Sunni population of the Palestinian Arabs?
At the end of all these adventures orchestrated through Iranian support, whether through direct, or a hidden third party support, the Iranians in league with China and Russia is pleading their unified stand to fight against terror networks. This is in fact targeting the Sunnis, and allowing Iranian designs to be promoted through covert means, and effectively using the social media to change public opinion in the west. China faces Xinjiang’s 20 million Sunnis, and Russia faces Chechnya’s Sunnis in its oil rich region. For Iran, Syria, Russia and China, the the enemy is common, which is the Sunni population that constitute 85% of the world's 23% Muslim population, next to Christianity.
Very few people know that few of the Taliban, or the extremist leaders including Gulbadin Hekmatyar, though Sunni extremist, took refuge in Iran after U.S. Military action in Afghanistan, post 9/11. Why was Iranian sympathy for those linked to Taliban?
The Iranian covert operation is succeeding in damaging the public perceptions against Sunni states, and is effectively promoted through their hidden logistic support to Sunni terrorist organizations. The Sunni Arabs, and others like Afghanistan and Pakistan has had been U.S. allies. By portraying them through the terrorists’ lens, this is damaging American inherent support in the Muslim world through Iranian covert operations, which benefits both, Russia and Iran.
May I ask few questions: Question-1: Who maintains clerics’ regime through popular mandate in the Muslim world? Question-2: Is that not a rogue country declared by the West? Question-3: Name a SINGLE Sunni state that has given mandate to Taliban, Al Qaeda, or the ISIS through a popular mandate? If not, than what does that reflect?
CONCLUSION: It’s a dilemma that the undercurrents including events in Syria has not been assessed through open-ended questions. The structured questionnaire will lead to perceptions to the success of Iranian-Russian nexus. An unbiased, authentic and credible conclusion needs to be drawn. American policies need to be smart in understanding the underlying phenomenon. The word ‘Wahabism’ is abused to create a divide in the Sunni states which is untrue, and being promoted through the Iranian agents.
Note: We strictly believe in religious harmony, and in no way the article is targeted against any group, or sect. Both the Shia and Sunni extreme elements have been equally condemned. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/sep/30/saudi-arabia-warns-there-is-no-future-for-assad-in-syria?CMP=twt_gu
