Islamic State Caliphate Project and the 'Global War on Terrorism'
"July 2, 2014 — The Al Qaeda legend and the threat of the "Outside Enemy" is sustained through extensive media and government propaganda . . . the terrorist threat from Al Qaeda constitutes the building block of US-NATO military doctrine . . . Known and documented, Al Qaeda affiliated entities have been used by US-NATO in numerous conflicts as 'intelligence assets' since the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war. In Syria, the Al Nusrah and ISIS rebels are the foot-soldiers of the Western military alliance, which in turn oversees and controls the recruitment and training of paramilitary forces.
While accusing several countries of harboring terrorists, America is a bona fide "State Sponsor of Terrorism" . . . the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham's Sunni caliphate project coincides with a longstanding US agenda to carve up both Iraq and Syria into three separate territories: A Sunni Islamist Caliphate, an Arab Shia Republic, and a Republic of Kurdistan.
The US-led Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) constitutes the cornerstone of US military doctrine. "Going after Islamic terrorists" is part and parcel of non-conventional warfare. The underlying objective is to justify the conduct of counter terrorism operations Worldwide, which enables the US and its allies to intervene in the affairs of sovereign countries . . . US intelligence in liaison with Britain's MI6 and Israel's Mossad are covertly involved in supporting the caliphate project. In turn, the media has embarked on a new wave of lies and fabrications, focusing on "a new terrorist threat" emanating from the Muslim World. Needless to say the links of the jihadist terror network to Western intelligence are never mentioned."

BEIRUT: Known for kidnapping, public stonings, lashings and executions, the Iraq and Al Sham (ISIS) is now expanding into tourism, taking jihadists on honeymoon and civilians to visit other parts of its “caliphate”.
Running twice-weekly tours from Syria's Raqa to Iraq's Anbar, ISIS's buses fly the group's black flag and play jihadist songs throughout the journey.
One of the first clients was Chechen jihadist Abu Abdel Rahman al-Shishani, aged 26, who took his new Syrian wife on honeymoon, according to activist Hadi Salameh.
