A rare and exclusive interview with Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri reveals that he believes the ISIS chief, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, to be a Mossad agent who aims to destabilise the region in order to create a ‘Greater Israel’ in the Middle East.
In a telephone conversation with the Pakistan Voice, al-Zawahiri says that ISIS were created by Washington and Israel, branding them “fake” and part of a zionist agenda.
“Al-Qaeda is the only terrorist organization that truly encompasses the values of Islam […] ISIS are brainwashed mercenaries […] they are funded by the Zionists in Washington and Tel Aviv” he said.
The CIA funding of ISIS
The al-Qaeda leader also accused the CIA of funding ISIS forces through heroin trafficking in Afghanistan.
“ISIS is funded by the CIA’s heroin trafficking in Afghanistan. There is none of this money that is going to al-Qaeda, it is all lies by the Zionist press” he acknowledged. “Saudi Arabia is also hand in hand with the US, Israel and ISIS, which it buy’s its oil from at ridiculous prices” he continued.
“Saudi Arabia, Israel and the United States all have common goals in the region” he added. “They want to destabilize the region and take Bashar al-Assad out of the way, so they can control the whole Middle east” he concluded.
A Mossad agent in disguise
The al-Qaeda leader also claims that ISIS Caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is none other than a Mossad agent.
“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a Zionist pig” he explained. “We know his background, he has been in the Mossad for over 18 years” he acknowledged. “He is subverting Islam to destroy Islam in the hearts of Muslims” he pleaded. “Muslims must not be fooled by this Zionist project to take control of the resources of the Middle East. We must not let these traitors take over the region or true Islam will disappear and we will become soulless slaves of the Zionist leaders of this world” he pleaded.
Former Israel Prime Minister, Shimon Peres also emitted similar comments last year in a controversial statement where he told reporters that “Israel should not support ISIS forces […]” and that “such alliances will backlash against Israel”, although most mainstream papers at the time dismissed his “unexpected” comments to failing mental conditions due to his advanced age, turning 92 years old this year.
In June 2013, Zawahiri called for the radical Islamist group Islamic State (IS) to leave Syria and instead focus on Iraq, and in February 2014 al-Qaeda severed all ties with the group altogether.
