ISIS: Psyop, CIA, Terrorists, Rebel, Religious Group?

Dani over at RTS compiled a wonderful series of articles regarding ISIS and it's connection to the CIA and manufactured terror. This is critical information to understand about what is really happening on earth and can be used to share with our fellows for their contemplation and awakening process.

This is going to be a LONG article but I will try to keep it as concise as possible....

In the past week, there seems to have been a HUGE amount of information coming out about ISIS- main stream media and in the alternative and investigative media. Going through it all is seriously enough to make your head blow up. I have compiled several articles here that all have various pieces of the puzzle when we consider all of the information in totality. That is the trick: to zoom out and look at all the pieces of information, opinion, and even the disinformation, to pull back and look at it all at the same time, then pull out the pieces that do not fit, and see what you are left with.

The entire ISIS/ISIL/AlQaeda issue is one that is difficult to get a true grasp of, because the story started years ago, and the timeline and the storyline have changed and been changed so many times that it is a convoluted mess.... which is exactly what "they" wanted.

I am posting a several article below and have added my comments and highlights on various points that I feel are important to figuring out the entire puzzle.

Lets start with the "rumor" that ISIS is in fact run by the CIA:

Suspicions Run Deep in Iraq That C.I.A. and the Islamic State Are United


BAGHDAD — The United States has conducted an escalating campaign of deadly airstrikes against the extremists of the Islamic State for more than a month. But that appears to have done little to tamp down the conspiracy theories still circulating from the streets of Baghdad to the highest levels of Iraqi government that the C.I.A. is secretly behind the same extremists that it is now attacking.

“We know about who made Daesh,” said Bahaa al-Araji, a deputy prime minister, using an Arabic shorthand for the Islamic State on Saturday at a demonstration called by the Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr to warn against the possible deployment of American ground troops. Mr. Sadr publicly blamed the C.I.A. for creating the Islamic State in a speech last week, and interviews suggested that most of the few thousand people at the demonstration, including dozens of members of Parliament, subscribed to the same theory. (Mr. Sadr is considered close to Iran, and the theory is popular there as well.)



Former CIA contractor Steven Kelley has said on record that ISIS/ISIL are a fabricated terrorist group made and funded by the CIA in the United States.

According to the video description:
“This is a completely fabricated enemy,” he said in a phone interview with Press TV from Anaheim, California on Thursday.
“The funding is completely from the United States and its allies and for people to think that this enemy is something that needs to be attacked in Syria or Iraq is a farce because obviously this is something that we create it, we control and only now it has become inconvenient for us to attack this group as a legitimate enemy,” Kelley added....

This next article is not at all surprising to those of us who have been pointing out for months that fact that all these "beheading" videos are very well filmed, good quality, hi def, all just picture perfect..... the point that seems to have been lost on most of the people commenting on this article by Drudge Report, is that it's not the fact that these studios filmed the beheadings.... it's that they CREATED the films!!! This is the work of CGI and green screen experts.

Remember this screen shot I highlighted on Transpicuous News back the first week of January:

#ISIS Jobs openings: - Munshid - Hackers - Programmers - 3DMax artists - Audio engineers - Media tweeps #Syria #Iraq
11:23 PM - 3 Jan 2015
ISIS looking for 3DMax Artists,.... Audio Engineers? REALLY?!? Why would a bunch of "Terrorists" need 3D artists and audio engineers? Perhaps to help produce their videos?

Leaving the Question wide open: Was ANYONE actually Beheaded? Or is this another case of False Flag Filming Crisis actors, just like Charlie Hebdo, the Boston Marathon Bombing, Colorado Theatre shooting.... just to name a few. 

Hollywood Studio Caught Producing ISIS Videos

Shockwaves are being felt all throughout Tinseltown today as federal authorities moved to arrest several who are accused of aiding and abetting a foreign terrorist organization by producing ISIS recruitment videos. It had long been suspected that the ISIS videos were produced from an outside source due to their above average production value, but no one had imagined an American production company could somehow be involved. That changed last night, when authorities moved in and raided Final Solution Productions, a production company off the famous intersection of Sunset and Vine. Authorities did not release the names of those arrested but did say six were arrested at the studio and two more at their homes in coordinated raids. Final Solution Productions is listed as a finishing company on their Web site, and claim to have worked on projects in the live sports commercial world, including for clients such as Pepsi Cola, Anheuser-Busch, and Apple. It is not known at the time of publishing to what extent these companies were themselves involved with Final Solutions, if at all, or what specific role it played in finishing the ads. What is known is that Final Solution Productions was operating under this front while editing and producing the terrorist videos from their Hollywood studio. “Around 2300 hours last night, in conjunction with Office of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Los Angeles Police Department, officers seized the assets at 42568 Vine St., arresting six individuals,” said FBI Special Agent Kendrick D. Williams from the LA division. “Two additional suspected were apprehended at their residence at that same time. All eight are being held as suspects in distributing and creating terrorist propaganda and are awaiting formal charges.”

Agent Williams is in charge of the Los Angeles intelligence office, and said agents were tipped off when they intercepted what appeared to be raw video elements being downloaded on computers in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. When asked, Mr. Williams would not elaborate how the government intercepted this material, but sources say it was a result of interrogation that first began from captured prisoners in Iraq. One source told us that authorities learned of video elements being sent via encrypted FTP servers to a producer “somewhere in the United States.” Tech experts tell us that once a server containing this media could be intercepted, it wouldn’t take long for someone with the right resources to be able to track the IP addresses of where it was ultimately being delivered, even if that IP addressed was masked by a torrent system. “Currently the FBI is investigating all other possible connections that Final Solution Productions may have had in the Hollywood production area,” said LAPD Chief Charlie Beck. “We do not believe Final Solution Productions acted alone, and are currently investigating its partners.”


For some time, authorities have been worried of so called “domestic terrorists” working for ISIS, and consider this a possible lead.


Further to that point, this is an oldie but a goodie article from Activist Post, Sept. 2014:


Scripted Oddities Portray ISIS As "James Bond" of Terrorism
Sept 2014
Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

Has the ISIS psyop calmed down a bit? Before it dies out let's examine some incredible ironies and oddities surrounding CIA's ISIS. After all, the ISIS psyop deserves a thorough analysis from every angle, so I thought it appropriate to outline for the sake of humanity. Hopefully, humanity can use the ISIS psyop as a tool for the final or further awakening. It may be wishful thinking, but it is worth exposing every crack and corner of this psyop and let government know that we are not going for it this time.

I declare humanity too intuitive to buy into this psychological operation and hopefully I'm right. So while the core TV-watching, mainstream media-believing community drinks the government Kool Aid, let us get started by pointing out several glaring observations regarding the ISIS psyop.

Glancing ahead, the ISIS kids have knowledge of things that require you to have education, modern technical skills, a little bit of decency, structure, conformity to societal norms and somewhat transparent connection to the outside world. What are these things and what are some of the surreal oddities surrounding ISIS? Let's examine:

1. Professional Camera, Editing Software and Skills

Incredibly, despite being savages that only want to kill for apparently no specific burning reason other than that fact that you are not ISIS, ISIS has at least some kind of production department that can skillfully provide what could be considered Hollywood-style editing (of supposed beheading videos) with multiple camera angles, consistent daylight on their subjects and proper daylight mode video exposure. They clearly have the skills for setting up multiple cameras and using those precise angles for their production department. In order to put out these supposed beheading videos, they also had to make sure that the sounds were just right and that there was no shaking of the camera.

Someone then had to take the various video angles and properly edit the footage so as to make it look professional. The editor, apparently a man of class and decency, then is careful not to show any actual action and blood. Savage killers who are ALSO respectful and classy about being too disturbing with their videos. Instead they courteously (but sloppily) cut from the early hand action of their British-sounding supposed lead man, to the post beheading amazingly clean shot of a head sitting on a corpse with the classic Photoshop drop shadows. In Hollywood style, reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock films, the editor essentially leaves the action to the viewer's imagination. Even though this beheading movie created by ISIS is not being submitted for any film festivals, they carefully comply with techniques that would make this film fully acceptable into almost any gore film festival.

To those who want to point out to viewers the amazing lack of blood during those first critical throat slices of James Foley's neck, sorry, exposing this lack of blood is in itself apparently too grotesque by YouTube standards and should you post such a video it will be conveniently removed.

2. Professional Image Editing Software and Skills.

Like the editing software, the ISIS production team shows off their skills in Photoshop image editing software, which often requires an extended learning period, resources, and practice. Despite a few imperfections, the ISIS production department seems to know how to cut and splice out sections of images to produce the desired effect of disconnecting a head from the body. Even if obtaining and using the software is believable, let's remember we're talking about savage "terrorists" that are supposedly inhumane. In other words, these are clinically, factually documented psychopaths and not your average person according to government legend. Let's keep this in mind (psychopaths) when speaking about ISIS.....

4. ISIS Intelligence Operation Apparently Far Superior to CIA/Mossad

Amazingly this group of geniuses who have outsmarted the entire global intelligence community seem to have all the capabilities to put the U.S. Empire's CIA and their globalist partner Israel's Mossad to shame. ISIS has put on a clinic and has officially handed the U.S. and Israel their butts in the intelligence department. They not only formed right below their noses, they did it quickly, they figured out unanimously what their mission would be and all agreed on it. Football teams and all sports team for that matter throughout the world could learn from ISIS. ISIS apparently is teaching the world how a team works together. Imagine, the CIA's mainstream media would have us believe that ISIS is powerful and high in numbers. Really? How would you get that many people to agree on anything? Every NCAA coach would learn a lot from ISIS. Here's a group of young face-covered men who actually agree on everything. They even all agree not to attack Israel for no reason at all.....

6. Anti Surveillance Technology- Able to Avoid All Existing Surveillance

In the age of super advanced government biometric surveillance, tracking and spying, ISIS has one less problem than anyone in America. Unlike Americans who are constantly under the threat of being surveilled and spied on by the U.S. empire, ISIS lives free of the threat of technological surveillance of any kind. For some reason, their images, faces, voices and actions are not surveilled, tracked or recorded by those who can do it.
"Intelligence sources" are powerless in the face of ISIS. All of the U.S.'s NASA, NSA and USAF technology and equipment makes no difference when it's ISIS. Despite all this, amazingly we hear nothing about the U.S. military or NSA trying to steal or decode the ISIS counter surveillance technology. Oddly, the topic of ISIS's amazing counter-surveillance technological abilities is not talked about by anyone in the media or in Washington. ...

...The big Israel attack would gain them all the PR and Marketing they need. Isn't that the goal when someone opens up a social media account? Hasn't ISIS demonstrated in the supposed beheading videos that they are serious, they want everyone to know who they are and they want certain things? An attack on Israel would get them everything they want; yet, for another lucky reason (luck of the U.S. and Israel) ISIS doesn't seem motivated about pulling off the big damage/low-cost attack on Israel.

The irony gets even crazier here. According to U.S. politicians pushing the ISIS psyop narrative, ISIS is not only unwilling to attack Israel, which they could do in a day or two, they instead prefer to make plans to travel all the way to the other side of the world to attack the world's most powerful Empire of all time. Yes, they would rather risk getting caught, imprisoned or killed traveling halfway around the world than to go for an easy quick strike at Israel. And, for good measure, as if to flaunt their super counter-intelligence capabilities, they are willing to announce ahead of time their travel plans to fly halfway across the world to attack American cities....

....10. Untraceable Money and Endless Spending

Yes, according to government mouthpiece "experts" like Colonel Anthony Shaffer and others, we (the U.S. "intelligence sources") know a lot about ISIS. They have money, they are organized, etc. But think about it, how come they "know" so much about ISIS's financial abilities but don't "know" who funded them or what bank accounts they currently have?? U.S. and its allies' intelligence only "know" enough to scare you with ISIS but not enough to act to actually stop their banking activity. That would actually stop ISIS dead in its tracks wouldn't it? But nope, we don't want ISIS to go away too quickly. The script needs to play out doesn't it?


Further to point #10, This article from June 2014 outlines a few things that I had forgotten until reading this reminder of some of the .... financial bullshit that was perpetuated in Iraq in 2003/4 (and continued, of course, right up till now).

What means may the US have used to create the ISIS left behind army? I would think the US used Iraq's money and assets which were stolen by the US after the disgusting, disgraceful, based on lies attack on Iraq, knowing there would be very little debt repayment required....

...When Paul Bremer, the American pro consul in Baghdad until June last year, arrived in Iraq soon after the official end of hostilities, there was $6bn left over from the UN Oil for Food Programme, as well as sequestered and frozen assets, and at least $10bn from resumed Iraqi oil exports. Under Security Council Resolution 1483, passed on May 22 2003, all these funds were transferred into a new account held at the Federal Reserve Bank in New York, called the Development Fund for Iraq (DFI), and intended to be spent by the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) "in a transparent manner ... for the benefit of the Iraqi people".

16 billion so far

The US Congress also voted to spend $18.4bn of US taxpayers' money on the redevelopment of Iraq. By June 28 last year, however, when Bremer left Baghdad two days early to avoid possible attack on the way to the airport, his CPA had spent up to $20bn of Iraqi money, compared with $300m of US funds.

Bremmer spent 20 billion Iraqi dollars, on what?

The CPA maintained one fund of nearly $600m cash for which there is no paperwork:
They have also discovered that $8.8bn that passed through the new Iraqi government ministries in Baghdad while Bremer was in charge is unaccounted for, with little prospect of finding out where it has gone. A further $3.4bn appropriated by Congress for Iraqi development has since been siphoned off to finance "security".

The US stonewalled every attempt to account for the funds. And Bremmer left Iraq before the whitewashed report was released

...There is, of course, much more. So read it at the link above. It is clear that the US, under L Paul Bremer, stole funds from the Iraqis in order to create their left behind army- ISIS.
They had the money, the means and the incentive.


Well, Let's look at that Israel connection with regards to ISIS.....

UN Report Reveals How Israel is Coordinating with ISIS Militants Inside Syria

February 19, 2015 By 21wire 10 Comments21st Century Wire says…

The Syrian conflict continues to develop into a proxy war, pitting various foreign ‘national interests’ against one another, including US vs. Syria, US vs Iran, Saudi Arabia vs Syria, Qatar vs. Syria, Turkey vs. Kurdistan and Iran vs. Israel – to name only a few. So the support network behind Washington’s ‘Moderate Rebels’ and terrorist groups fighting in Syria is comprised of many contributing covert intelligence agencies, including the CIA, MI5/6, Mossad, France, NATO, Jordan and Saudi Arabia...

...Last month Israel launched its sixth airstrike inside Syria in the last 18 months, which is described as a ‘targeted killing’ against Hezbollah, whom Tel Aviv maintains is backed by their sworn enemy Iran – which leader Benjamin Netanyahu claims, affords Israel the right to kill them at any time, or any place. Back in 2013, the Assad government in Damascus invited Lebanese Hezbollah militia into Syria to help eliminate terrorists in Syria, and now the uncomfortable reality is finally surfacing – that Israel has been picking off Syrian military and Hezbollah targets who are trying to fight-off ISIS, al Qaeda and al Nusra terrorists – which means that Israel is actually helping ISIS.

““the UN report identified what the Syrians label a crossing point of forces between Israel and ISIS, a point of concern brought before the UN Security Council."

This story has been completely blacked out in the US and UK English-speaking corporate media, even though the Israeli press has actually reported this numerous times....


Ok, let's move on. CNN has actually put out several article in the past little while that clearly outline certain pieces of the puzzle, cleverly hidden in the mess of disinformation and outright lies that CNN feeds to the Western populations. This article below outlines some interesting points. Highlights are mine.

How ISIS makes (and takes) money

Updated 0344 GMT (1144 HKT) February 20, 2015

(CNN)The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has crude, stomach-turning tactics when it comes to dealing with its enemy, but experts say that its moneymaking methods are highly sophisticated, especially for such a new terror group.
Here's a look at how ISIS has made (and taken) millions:

Oil production and smuggling

ISIS makes between $1 million and $2 million each day from oil sales, numerous sources tell CNN. The oil comes mostly from refineries and wells that ISIS controls in northern Iraq and northern Syria.
The militants smuggle oil into southern Turkey, for example, and sell it to people who desperately need it just to carry on some semblance of everyday life....

...Through its oil operations, ISIS appears to be trying to establish a self-sufficientstate in the "Sunni triangle" in west and north Iraq, said Luay al-Khatteeb, founder and director of the Iraq Energy Institute.

Ransoms from kidnappings

In 2012, the U.S. Treasury Department estimated that al Qaeda and its affiliates had accumulated $120 million from ransoms over the previous eight years.
ISIS was once aligned with al Qaeda. The two groups are thought to operate separately but share similarities....

Looting and selling stolen artifacts and antiquities

ISIS allows locals to dig at ancient sites as long as those people give ISIS a percentage of the monetary value of anything found, according to a September 2014New York Times opinion piece written by three people who had recently returned from southern Turkey and interviewed people who live and work in ISIS-controlled territory.
ISIS' system of profiteering from antiquities thieving is very complicated, the three said, adding that for some areas along the Euphrates River, ISIS leaders encourage semiprofessional field crews to dig....

...CNN has extensively reported on ISIS' destruction of some ancient and deeply meaningful sites in Iraq. Officials in Iraq have said ISIS has blown up shrines such as the tomb of Jonah.

* side note from the above mentioned article: 
"ISIS is part of a puritanical strain of Islam that considers all religious shrines -- Islamic, Christian, Jewish, etc. -- idolatrous.....ISIS has blown up several Sunni holy sites in the last few weeks in Mosul. Last month, it destroyed seven Shiite places of worship in the predominantly Shiite Turkmen city of Tal Afar, about 31 miles (50 kilometers) west of Mosul, Human Rights Watch has reported, citing local sources."

'Taxes,' aka extortion

In 2014, ISIS gained control of large swaths of Iraq and Syria and set out to create civil and administrative entities as if it were a legitimate state. That is, after all, what the militants have claimed to be after -- a caliphate, or an Islamic state led by one person, a successor to the Prophet Mohammed.
States demand taxes. In ISIS-controlled areas, to get anything done -- or to survive -- the people pay a fee to the terror group. Businesses are taxed if they want to have essential things like electricity and security, experts say....


Sometimes there's no pretense such as "taxing." ISIS has stolen money, too. In June 2014, the group raided several banks in Mosul and stole an estimated $500 million, though the full amount is unconfirmed, according to global intelligence firmStratfor. In Syria, ISIS has seized control of oil facilities, taking over from rebel group al-Nusra, which didn't fight back.....

Organs harvesting and sale?

The Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations caused a sensation this week when he said that bodies have been found mutilated, and openings have been carved out of the backs of the corpses. To Mohamed Alhakim, that indicated "some parts are missing."
He said it's possible that ISIS is harvesting and trafficking the organs of dead civilians.
There is tremendous skepticism about that, particularly considering how hard it would be to preserve organs in crude and unsanitary war environments....

........ *Seriously?!?* ..... * insert facepalm*......

Control of crops

Mouaz Moustafa, the executive director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force in Washington, told CNN that Raqqa, ISIS' de facto Syrian capital, is a kind of breadbasket. "They've got the cotton and the wheat." he said. The United States has targeted grain silos that ISIS controls.

A separate economy?

Last year, ISIS announced that its "Treasury Department" would start minting its own gold, silver and copper coins for its "Official Islamic State Financial System." It's not clear if this has any value. The move is "purely dedicated to God," ISIS declared, and will remove Muslims from the "global economic system that is based on satanic usury."


n. pl. u·su·ries 
1. The practice of lending money and charging the borrower interest, especially at an exorbitant or illegally high rate.
2. An excessive or illegally high rate of interest charged on borrowed money.
3. Archaic Interest charged or paid on a loan.
This point is actually quite important to the over all puzzle of Who and What "ISIS" is.  The very act of collecting interest is actually against the Islamic faith, hence the fact that SUKUKs are used in Islamic countries:
Sukuk (Arabicصكوك‎, plural of صك Sakk, "legal instrument, deed, check") is theArabic name for financial certificates, but commonly refers to the Islamicequivalent of bonds. Since fixed income, interest bearing bonds are not permissible in Islam, Sukuk securities are structured to comply with the Islamic law and its investment principles, which prohibits the charging, or paying of interest. This is generally done by involving a tangible asset in the investment, such as by giving partial ownership of a property built by the investment company to the bond owner. The bond owner is then able to collect his profit as a rent, which is allowed under Islamic law.

So.... we have a "terrorist" group. A "new" terrorist group that supposedly was part of, or worked with, or was trained by AlQaeda, but has since parted ways with them.   We have a group of "terrorists" that have/are:

-creating their own central bank:
Khorshid Alika, economic researcher and member of the Kurdish Association of Economists in Syria, stated to ARA New that the IS radical group has all the necessary resources to create its own central bank in order to issue an Islamic currency.

-creating their own Gold, Silver and Copper coins- a True fully asset backed currency"
In an announcement on Thursday heralding a liberation from the “satanic usury-based global economic system,” the Islamic State said it would begin minting gold, silver and copper coins, in likenesses similar to the days of the seventh-century caliphs.
The coins will have standardized weights and values, the announcement said, and they will be the legal tender of the lands controlled by the group, also known as ISISor ISIL.


 - created their own passports and license plates:

ISIS has created their own license plates, making it clear which citizens are considered friends and which ones are foes.
Picture have been circulated of what is speculated to be the first passport issued by ISIS, made in a government facility in Mosul that they have taken control of. Allegedly the passport belongs to their new Caliph, and plans are being pushed to create 11,000 more for their followers.

- created it's own government with ministries and courts:

IS has already put into place certain aspects of a normal state. A recent New York Times article noted that it not only has a flag, it has also created courts (a religious judicial system based on sharia law) and proto-government ministries. In other words it is establishing a political government beyond its military-terrorist armed forces. 


- created it's own magazine:
 Apparently, ISIS is looking to be the Buzzfeed for extreme Islamists, publishing the first issue of an online magazine called Dabiq. Featuring “The Return of Khilafah [Caliphate]” as its cover story, the 26-page publication carries stories heralding “a new era ... of might and dignity for the Muslims.” 

 .... Don't really sound very much like a bunch of "terrorists" do they?  When you review all the information above this sentence, you have to SEE that nothing about "ISIS" feels anything like a group of "terrorists".  Which, of course leads us to the question:  Who are ISIS?  Or perhaps What is ISIS?

One theory is that ISIS is an extremist religious group.On February 16th, CNN ran an article entitled, "Why does ISIS keep making enemies?", that gives a glimpse into yet another section of the puzzle we are trying to put together:

A key window into understanding ISIS is its English language "in-flight magazine" Dabiq. Last week the seventh issue of Dabiq was released, and a close reading of it helps explains ISIS' world view.
The mistake some make when viewing ISIS is to see it as a rational actor. Instead, as the magazine documents, its ideology is that of an apocalyptic cult that believes that we are living in the end times and that ISIS' actions are hastening the moment when this will happen.
The name of the Dabiq magazine itself helps us understand ISIS' worldview. TheSyrian town of Dabiq is where the Prophet Mohammed is supposed to have predicted that the armies of Islam and "Rome" would meet for the final battle that will precede the end of time and the triumph of true Islam.
In the recent issue of Dabiq it states: "As the world progresses towards al-Malhamah al-Kubrā, ('the Great Battle' to be held at Dabiq) the option to stand on the sidelines as a mere observer is being lost." In other words, in its logic, you are either on the side of ISIS or you are on the side of the Crusaders and infidels.
When American aid worker Peter Kassig was murdered by ISIS in November, "Jihadi John" -- the masked British murderer who has appeared in so many ISIS videos -- said of Kassig: "We bury the first crusader in Dabiq, eagerly waiting for the rest of your armies to arrive."
In other words, ISIS wants a Western ground force to invade Syria, as that will confirm the prophecy about Dabiq.
We live in an increasingly secularized world, so it's sometimes difficult to take seriously the deeply held religious beliefs of others. For many of us the idea that the end of times will come with a battle between "Rome" and Islam at the obscure Syrian town of Dabiq is as absurd as the belief that the Mayans had that their human sacrifices could influence future events.
But for ISIS, the Dabiq prophecy is deadly serious. Members of ISIS believe that they are the vanguard fighting a religious war, which Allah has determined will be won by the forces of true Islam. ...
...ISIS members devoutly believe that they are fighting in a cosmic war in which they are on the side of good, which allows them to kill anyone they perceive to be standing in their way with no compunction. This is, of course, a serious delusion, but serious it is.

This article was based on a research paper that was recently published, "Islamic Eschatology: Research Notes"- I have embedded a copy of it at the bottom of this article for those who wish to research this further- it's actually very interesting and quite enlightening to read, given the questions we are asking. 

The "Islamic Eschatology Research Notes" delves into the concept of the "end of days" belief that may (or may not) be the driving force behind ISIS:
Dabiq, issue #1:  
A new caliphate’s new magazine demands a new name — and on this occasion the name chosen carries a very specific end-times connotation:
As for the name of the magazine, then it is taken from the area named Dabiq in the northern countryside of Halab (Aleppo) in Sham. This place was mentioned in a hadith describing some of the events of the Malahim (what is sometimes referred to as Armageddon in English). One of the greatest battles between the Muslims and the crusaders will take place near Dabiq.
So there you have it in a nutshell — the IS caliphate announced their arrival with the first issue of a magazine named specifically for an impending battle associated with Armageddon.
To give those they seek to recruit to the cause more detail, one hadith has been used repeatedly by the newly formed "caliphate" of ISIS to give an "end times" spin to their jihad mentions. It mentions:
• The Hour -- the end times 
• the Romans -- the  Western forces 
• Dabiq -- scene of a historic battle and more significantly location of a future, end times battle, to be fought in "Sham" ie greater Syria, where the Great Battle, alMalhamah al-Kubra, comparable to Christian Armageddon, will take place  
• Shatyan -- Satan 
• The [false] Messiah -- the Muslim antichrist known as the Dajjal, and  
• Isa Ibn Maryam -- Jesus son of Mary, whom Muslims believe will return to kill the Dajjal and assist the Mahdi, Islam's principal end times eschatological figure 

The extended hadith reads as follows: 

Abu Hurayrah reported that Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,
“The Hour will not be established until the Romans land at al-A’maq or Dabiq (two places near each other in the northern countryside of Halab). Then an army from alMadinah of the best people on the earth at that time will leave for them.
When they line up in ranks, the Romans will say, ‘Leave us and those who were taken as prisoners from amongst us so we can fight them.’ The Muslims will say, ‘Nay, by Allah, we will not abandon our brothers to you.’ So they will fight them. 

Then one third of them will flee; Allah will never forgive them. One third will be killed; they will be the best martyrs with Allah. And one third will conquer them; they will never be afflicted with fitnah. Then they will conquer Constantinople.
While they are dividing the war booty, having hung their swords on olive trees, Shaytan will shout, ‘The [false] Messiah has followed after your families [who were left behind.]’ So they will leave [for their families], but Shaytan’s claim is false.
When they arrive to Sham he comes out. Then while they are preparing for battle and filing their ranks, the prayer is called. So ‘Isa Ibn Maryam (‘alayhis-Salam) will descend and lead them.
When the enemy of Allah sees him, he will melt as salt melts in water. If he were to leave him, he would melt until he perished, but he kills him with his own hand, and then shows them his blood upon his spear” [Sahih Muslim].
The editorial concludes:
According to the hadith, the area will play a historical role in the battles leading up to the conquests of Constantinople, then Rome. Presently, Dabiq is under the control of crusader backed sahwat, close to the warfront between them and the Khilafah.
May Allah purify Dabiq from the treachery of the sahwah and raise the flag of the Khilafah over its land. Amin.

*Side note: It might come to a surprise to most westerners (especially those who are Christians), that the Sunni Muslim faith believes that in the End of Days, Jesus Christ will descend from the Heavens and will destroy the AntiChrist, along side the prophet.

Now, many Western media outlets- both main stream and alternative- have ranted long and hard about the fact that Obama refuses to send ground troops into Syria.  But this begs the question: if Obama knows that ISIS' leaders are claiming that they are leading their troops into what amounts to Armageddon, and that their followers believe, completely and totally, that the count down clock starts ticking the moment that "Rome" lands in Syria, then by that reckoning, the choice to refuse to send those troops may in fact be far more important that the vast majority of the Obama haters want to believe.  As someone who was raised in an extreme right wing christian religion, I have witnessed first hand the power of belief to drive people to do unbelievable things in the name of "Faith".  If these armed men, who've been trained by AlQaida/CIA/Mercenary operatives, are following the word of their leaders, in full faith that if they die, they will be martyrs in heaven, forever.... then they will be willing to die to bring about the "End of Days" that is foretold by the Prophet.

.... an army that doesn't fear death, is a very scary thing to a General leading men into battle who are being paid almost minimum wage, who know that as Vets they will be abused by the system of government that they are sworn to protect, and whom are already questioning the validity of a battle on foreign soil that is no more than a continuation of over a decade of useless battles....

That the followers of ISIS, the armed men that make up the vast majority of their troops, are following a religious "Jihad" is most likely true.  But the question remains, what of the leadership, and who is pulling the strings?

We KNOW that AlQaeda is a creation of the CIA.  We KNOW that ISIS was, at the very least, birthed from the ranks of AlQaeda.  We know that suddenly in the past year, ISIS and AlQaeda have gone separate ways, (to the point of becoming enemies?).  It wasn't until this separation that we've seen in the past year, that suddenly ISIS has become..... a literal State.  Not just a group of Terrorists blowing shit up, but creating a brand new government structure, from the ground up.

This is where I have a couple of hypothesis that I would like to share with you.

Scenario #1:  That ISIS is still under the control of the CIA/OPs and the controllers are perpetuating this "religious jihad" as a way to draw in men and convince them to march into a battle that is a "holy war", and thereby creating the excuse that the US and their war mongering buddies need to perpetuate their plan to take over the middle east and to create chaos and mayhem so that they can sweep up all the burned out and burned up countries left behind.

Secario #2:  That ISIS is actually a rebellion of the highest magnitude.  That once they were trained and fully armed by the US(British, Israeli,) Operatives, the leaders left the AlQaeda/CIA controllers and took over with their own plan.

Imagine this:  You are an Iraqi citizen.  You have watched your country be completely destroyed by war that was brought to your land by the lies and deceit of the American Government, in collusion with NATO and, of course, the Banksters.  You witnessed the Bush Cabal steal EVERYTHING of value from your country- it's money and gold, its natural resources, even (or perhaps, most especially) their artifacts, watched them take control of your country with an iron fist, install a US puppet government, and throw your nation back into almost the dark ages.  Then after many years, you and your people are promised that the US will fix your country, and your national currency will be revalued back to it's true and original value.  You are told again and again that the revaluation of your currency, the lifting of UN Chapter 7 sanctions which holds your country in servitude to the US and UN, are about to happen......

.... and then NOTHING happens.  No Revaluation for your currency.  No Freedom from the US oppressor.  ....

.... and finally..... you just can't take it any more.  Along comes a group of.... hmmmm.... let's call them "freedom fighters"- who say to you "Hey!  Fuck the Americans!!  Fuck this puppet government that the US has put over us to tell us what to do and to continuously take away everything we have tried to build!!!  Fuck them all!  We're taking our country back!!!" .....

And those troops get bigger and bigger, and they sweep across Iraq and take back a shit load of towns and land, and gather up more people.... and they create their own government, their own central bank, their own 
REAL CURRENCY...One that is actually fully ASSET BACKED....

.... Is it possible that the army that is being labeled "terrorist" and "ISIS", by the US Controllers and their Puppets, are actually Rebels who are trying to take back their country from the Oppressors who have stolen every single thing of value in their country?  Is it possible that these videos of beheadings are no more than a Hollywoodesque propaganda campaign designed to turn the world against these men, fighting to free themselves?

Just this past week, the President of Sudan stated that the US/CIA created Al Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram. Hell, this was even reported in main stream media in England.

Sudan's President claims CIA and Mossad 'stand behind' Isis and Boko Haram

Let's review for a moment:

Add to this list Ukraine 2014- successful, Venezuela 2014- failed.....
Do you see what I am saying?  It's not like the US/CIA/Banksters haven't done this before, now is it?

The answers we are looking for may not exactly be one of the scenarios I have laid out, but hopefully the picture has become a bit clearer to focus on, now that we've stood back and had a good look at all of these pieces. The one thing we DO know, is that the "Official Story" is absolute bullshit.

I don't know about you, but I actually learned a hell of a lot while researching the information in this article.  I am still working through a lot of these details in my head....  and I am sure that tomorrow will bring yet another piece of the puzzle into focus.
