The Emergence of ISIS Terrorist Fundamentalism Traced Back to Bush-Blair Decision to Invade Iraq

Sharon/ Netanyahu/ Bush/ Blair Iraq War has now culminated in refugee crisis for all 28 EU member states

The emergence of ISIL and terrorist fundamentalism throughout Syria and the Middle East can be traced directly to the decision of Bush and Blair to accede to the demands from Sharon and Netanyahu for America and Britain to illegally attack Iraq to effect regime change in order to neutralise one of Israel’s perceived enemies.

The consequences have been, and are, catastrophic for the entire Middle East and now menace the stability of the entire European Union. This has arguably led to the most serious threat to Europe and the world, since 1939. 

Extract from Mark Weber’s article “Iraq: a war for Israel”

“While the unprovoked US invasion of Iraq may have helped Israel, just as those who wanted and planned for the war had hoped, it has been a calamity for America and the world. It has cost many tens of thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars. Around the world, it has generated unmatched distrust and hostility toward the US. In Arab and Muslim countries, it has fueled intense hatred of the United States, and has brought many new recruits to the ranks of anti­-American terrorists.

Americans have already paid a high price for their nation’s commitment to Israel. We will pay an ever higher price ­ not just in dollars or international prestige, but in the lives of young men squandered for the interests of a foreign state ­ until the ­Zionist hold on US political life is finally broken.”
