Radicals complain recruits are turning away as they discover Western intelligence controls extremist groups
A report in the official propaganda magazine of ISIS this month bemoans the fact that the terror group is losing members because of so called ‘conspiracy theories’ that Western intelligence manipulates and controls extremists for its own agenda.
The International Business Times reports that the magazine, Dabiq, condemns conspiracy theorists, referring to their ideas and beliefs as “sinful”.
“If the mujahedeen liberated territory occupied by the kuffar [infidels], they would say that the kuffar allowed them to do so because kafir [disbelievers] interests’ necessitated a prolonged war,” the article states.
“According to these theorists, almost all the events of the world were somehow linked back to the kuffar, their intelligence agencies, research, technology, and co-conspirators!” the extremist rag proclaims.
“Conspiracy theories have thereby become an excuse to abandon jihad.” the piece, entitled Conspiracy Theory Shirk (Sin), declares.
InfoWars has long highlighted how Al Qaeda and ISIS are, at the very least, used by intelligence agencies in a grand game of geopolitical chess. It is indisputable that Al Qaeda was seeded by the CIA and Saudi intelligence in the late seventies and early eighties.
Clearly, the ISIS propaganda piece was published before it was revealed this week (by Western intelligence) that Osama Bin Laden himself was an avid conspiracy theorist.
According to newly declassified US government documents, around half of Bin Laden’s reading list was made up of titles about general political and intelligence conspiracies, alternative 9/11 theories, as well as literature on secret societies such as the Illuminati.
“In terms of the materials that are there, some of the things that we’ve found to be of note were that bin Laden was probably an avid conspiracy theorist,” an anonymous senior intelligence official told Buzzfeed. “Of the 38 full-length English-language books he had in his possession, about half of them were conspiracy theory books.”
As Infowars noted, Bin Laden being obsessed with literature which disputes the official narrative that he had masterminded the 9/11 attacks makes little sense [if he had in fact masterminded 9/11] …
Presumably something similar is happening on the western side, as compartmentalized bureaucrats and military are discovering the true nature of their “leadership”.
