Hillary Clinton Is Spreading Islamist Extremism, Hillary’s Saudi Sponsors Support Terrorism

If the West in general and the United States in particular, left the Arab and Muslim world alone and in peace, we would most likely never see all those terrorist attacks, which are rocking the world from Indonesia to France. There would be no Mujahedeen and its mutation into al-Qaeda; in Afghanistan or elsewhere. There would be no traces of the ISIS (or ISIL or I.S. or Daesh or however you choose to call it), in Syria, Iraq, Libya or anywhere else.

And the super-conservative Wahhabi Islam, that outdated, freak Saudi mutant, would remain in the religious schools of the ultra-regressive Kingdom, instead of gaining ground all over Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

Secular Islam
But the West embarked on a brutal, Machiavellian path: it decided to destroy socialist Islam – that (historically) moderate, compassionate and progressive religion. It smashed once secular Egypt; it overthrew the government in socialist Iran and then in near-Communist Indonesia, implanting in all these places horrifically degenerate and fully outdated religious concepts. It used extremists to destroy healthy patriotism and socialism. Like the Brits in the 19th Century (“You can control people’s brains, while we will control your natural resources”), the West embraced Wahhabi teaching, because it was able to guarantee full obedience, dictatorial (pro-Western) governance and oppressive feudalism.

Islam has been used and abused, manipulated and virtually stripped of its essence. The process has gone so far that two leading Iranian scholars, during my visit last-year to Teheran, declared to me: “In so many parts of the world, the West created an absolutely new religion. We don’t recognize it, anymore. It has nothing to do with Islam.”

“If the West in general and the United States in particular, left the Arab and Muslim world alone and in peace, we would most likely never see all those terrorist attacks, which are rocking the world from Indonesia to France…”

Correct. Like a naughty, spoiled and heartless child, the West, after destroying the Soviet Union, painstakingly constructed its new enemy – “militant Islam” – so it could continue indulging in its favorite activity, which is perpetual conflict, endless wars and plunder.

It is as simple as that.

The greatest oppressors of the Muslim people, those in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Indonesia have all been closely allied to the West. The most terrible terrorist “Muslim” organizations, from Al-Qaida to ISIS, have been created, armed and supported by the West and its cronies.

In Europe and in the United States, the “fear of terrorists” is fully exploited by the Western regime—a global class alliance plutocrats, in actuality, with headquarters in Washington, where the main military and media muscle reside. It still clings to power mainly thanks to such fear implanted in the brains of ‘ordinary people’.And what about the “War on Terror”? Yes, there really is such war, but the West is not the one who fights it. As this goes to print, the war against terrorism is being fought by Russia, Iran, China, Syria, Hezbollah and their allies!

The West is still closely collaborating with the terrorists. It miraculously ‘avoids targeting them’ when ‘fighting wars against them’; it financially supports some and trains others. It criticizes and antagonizes those who are actually fighting the extremist militant groups.

Extremists have been unleashed, like Rottweiler fighting dogs, against almost all progressive governments in the Middle East, but also against China and Russia. Extremist Muslims, extremist Christians, even extremist Buddhists!

In turn, the politicians in the United States are regularly supported, financially, by the regimes (including those of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, etc.) that are spreading, relentlessly, throughout the world, the most intolerant and grotesquely violent religious concepts.

Despite their essential servility and cowardice, even some North American mainstream media outlets are now actively discussing various schemes involving the financing of the Clinton Foundation by Saudi Arabia (alongside several leading transnational corporations and Wall Street’s largest banks).

On its “Breaking News”, as far back as in 2008, CNN reported:
The donations to the William J. Clinton Foundation include amounts of $10 million to $25 million from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and real estate mogul Stephen Bing, a personal friend of the Clintons.

The Clintons came under intense pressure during Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination to release the names of donors to both the Foundation and to the Clinton presidential library in Arkansas.

Bill Clinton agreed to the release of the list after President-elect Barack Obama nominated Hillary Clinton to become Secretary of State.

The governments of Kuwait and Qatar are also on the list, as is Saudi businessman Nasser Al-Rashid, who has close ties to the Saudi royal family. Saudi Sheikh Mohammed H. Al-Amoudi, reputed to be one of the richest men in the world, is among the donors as well. Both Saudis contributed in the $1 million to $5 million range. A group called Friends of Saudi Arabia and the Dubai Foundation appear in the same category.

As recently as on August 20th, 2016, The New York Times wrote something similar, essentially reconfirming the validity of the earlier reports, while adding many more details and adjusting the figures:

The kingdom of Saudi Arabia donated more than $10 million. Through a foundation, so did the son-in-law of a former Ukrainian president whose government was widely criticized for corruption and the murder of journalists. A Lebanese-Nigerian developer with vast business interests contributed as much as $5 million.

For years the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation thrived largely on the generosity of foreign donors and individuals who gave hundreds of millions of dollars to the global charity. But now, as Mrs. Clinton seeks the White House, the funding of the sprawling philanthropy has become an Achilles’ heel for her campaign and, if she is victorious, potentially her administration as well.

Long time Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin (who spent part of her childhood in Saudi Arabia) has been an intermediary between the former Secretary of State and pro-Saudi interests. She also negotiated financial support for Ms. Clinton from Mr. Chagouri and other individuals, organizations and businesses originating from the Middle East.

The accusations and evidence keep coming in, from different media outlets, both left wing and right wing. On August 1st, 2016, the conservative Breitbart News stated:

Khizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star father that the mainstream media and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been using to criticize Donald J. Trump, has deep ties to the government of Saudi Arabia—and to international Islamist investors through his own law firm. In addition to those ties to the wealthy Islamist nation, Khan also has ties to controversial immigration programs that wealthy foreigners can use to essentially buy their way into the United States—and has deep ties to the “Clinton Cash” narrative through the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary’s Saudi Sponsors
Hillary Clinton’s dependence on Saudi sponsors has been strongly influencing her decision to maintain a foreign policy in the service of Riyadh and support for various terrorist groups controlled by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, in and beyond the Middle East region.

In reality, she is simply representing ‘continuity’ of an already existing, deadly trend. The regime has been ‘evolving’ for decades, but especially since the Ronald Reagan years. Republicans or Democrats: it truly matters very little. Both parties spread terror all over the world. True, George W. Bush invaded Iraq, but people like Bill Clinton are close friends and supporters of Paul Kagame, the Rwandese ‘butcher of Congo’, with the blood of some 10 million people on his hands. Democrat and ‘moderate’, Bill Clinton, was also responsible for the criminal bombing and destruction of socialist Yugoslavia. And so it goes…

But under Barack Obama’s rule, the last hope for an independent Middle East and the Arab world has virtually evaporated. Libya has been destroyed; the Syrian civil war was launched from Washington, London and Paris. Saudis bathed rebellious Yemen in blood using UK and US produced weapons. Virtually all ‘Arab Spring revolutions’ were infiltrated and diverted. And in Bahrain, the Shi’a majority was literally raped by Saudi Arabia and its own ruthless rulers, with British advisors standing-by.

The US and Europe have kept selling arms to the Gulf, building new military bases while supporting the most appalling and bloodthirsty regimes.

The ‘Obama/ (Hilary) Clinton Era’ has greatly ‘improved’ the symbioses of Western imperialism, big business, and pro-Western fascist regimes worldwide, but particularly in the Middle East and Africa.

This toxic embrace has proved fatal to millions of people in these two parts of the world. Hopes for self-governance have been ruined. Corpses keep piling up in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and elsewhere.

The West does not care, as long as it stays in charge of the ‘show’, and for as long as hundreds of billions of dollars are made by weapons’ producers. Even if millions are dying, there is still an uninterrupted flow of raw materials to the West and Japan. Therefore, it is ‘business as usual’. ‘Un-people’ and their lives are worth nothing.

At one point, Russia, Iran, China and others have said “enough is enough; let’s fight against the true terrorists! Let’s fight ISIS and other bigots! Let’s give a hand to the independence-minded, socially-oriented patriots”.

Predictably,. this led to total outrage in Washington, London, and Paris (and Tokyo). Disobedience and rebellion against the global (Western) order could not be tolerated! It had to be crushed, even at the cost of new and deadly world war.

NATO, Washington, Europe, Japan, and South Korea –all started a direct confrontation policy against Russia, China, Iran, North Korea (DPRK) and other members of the ‘Coalition of Daring’. Brazil, an important member of BRICS, was recently destroyed by the extreme-right coup supported by the West.

Even the Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump, in his rare moments of sanity, is clearly aware of the danger. He does not wish to confront Russia. He is obviously not willing to sacrifice tens of millions of human lives for some grotesque dreams of total world domination by a market fundamentalism backed by the white (or Western) supremacist dogmas.

But Trump’s moments of sanity are defined as ‘madness’ by the mainstream propaganda. Not surprisingly! As was correctly stated by the great Indian thinker, Arundhati Roy, some several years ago: “now war is called peace and black is called white”. Orwellian indeed, with a vengeance.

The Clinton Campaign
The Clinton campaign has gone into overdrive. It attempts to distract attention from its own funding scandals, by accusing Donald Trump’s aides of receiving financing from abroad. Trump is now described as ‘Russia’s agent’.

This game – it is all self-serving: nothing to do with the interests of the world, or even the interests of the common ‘American people’.

For as long as the general political trend of the West does not radically change, or for as long as the West is not stopped by outside forces, perpetual wars will continue. Monstrous genocides in Africa, the destruction of entire states and regions in the Middle East, all this could easily spread to other parts of the Planet.

It is clear now that if provoked and confronted, countries like China, Russia and Iran would not hesitate to fight back. They also may fight for others – for their tortured allies.

The Western implants and their buddies, Mujahedeen/Al-Qaida, have already destroyed Afghanistan and the Soviet Union. ISIS, another mutant unleashed by the West and its allies, have been devastating Iraq, Syria, Libya and now what is left of Afghanistan.

These ‘movements’ have really nothing to do with Islam. They were manufactured in Washington, Riyadh, London, and Doha (and most likely even in Tel Aviv), for several concrete purposes, all of them thoroughly foul.

They are making sure to ruin the socialist nature of Islam, insisting exclusively on the implementation of outdated, medieval fundamentalist interpretations.

Huma Abedin’s mother, Dr. Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is one of the founding members of the Muslim Sisterhood, and chairperson of the “International Islamic Committee for Woman and Child” (IICWC). She is also a well known writer and editor based in Saudi Arabia. Her organization (IICWC) had repeatedly argued that laws banning female circumcision should be revoked, as well as laws prohibiting child marriage and marital rape. During her visit to KSA, Hillary Clinton spoke at the Islamic college of Dar El-Hekma (where Dr. Saleha Abedin was a vice-dean) shoulder-to-shoulder with her favorite aide – Huma.

Was this just an insignificant episode? Like those millions of dollars in Saudi Arabian funding for Clinton’s foundation? Like the US ‘foreign policy’ in the Gulf and in the Middle East, like spreading Muslim extremist groups to all corners of the world, from Africa, the Middle East, to Southeast Asia and even China? Like unleashing conservative Islam against socialist Muslim countries?

Too many ‘episodes’! Too much blood… It is time to say what is by now obvious: “The US establishment is not fighting ‘Muslim terrorism’ or even ‘extremism’; it is manufacturing it, and injecting it everywhere.”

The only real enemy that Washington, London and Paris have, for decades, even for centuries, is the anti-colonialist struggle, and the burning desire of people, worldwide, to terminate the West’s global dictatorship.

Very specal thanks for this! High time for a posting of this nature after my links usually get little attention. But folks just cannot keep their eyes closed or look the other way forever!

That last phrase there seems like the perfect occasion to throw in here this other link which got almost zero attention where I previously posted it except for one skeptical comment.
Judge for yourselves, is there a pivot in minds? Not Hillary's of course, that goes without saying.

Good to find an article that spells this out ...

Western powers fiddle with cultures that they don't understand, try to use sub-groups that at a given point in time share certain interests (The enemy of my enemy is my friend) without grasping ll the layers upon layers ..

And then are surprised then later on, it backlashes ...
Al Qaeda morphs into extremist Muslim political movements
Hamas morphs into a political party with a militia
Al Qaeda's splinter groups splinter further, morphing into IS/Daesh

And now out "Kurdish" allies are liable to morph into another movement (especially when faced with friend Erdogan's horrors ...) & it won't be long before we see a new "monster" born from meddling of foreign powers

And religion will be blamed, although the true lifespring each time lies in Politics & money rather than true religion ...
Unless, of course, one recognises that the most dangerous religion on earth is BIG MONEY ... & the control of it ...
(and one of the drivers of big money is the arms business ..... which does NOT want peace on earth)

This article would actually be kind of amusing if not for the fact that some people might be stupid enough to believe that Iran, Russia, China etc. are at all interested in fighting terrorism. Might that possibly be so that the competition is eliminated and they are free to pursue without opposition their own terroristic tendencies?

Yes, most likely true. There probably would have been occasional conflicts but nothing like what has transpired.Very interesting, Eleonora

Noted. Many thanks for posting, Eleonora.

Over the past several years I have read many articles explaining how the Saudi Wahhabi faction wanted Saddam Hussein out of Iraq. This article explains it all very cohesively. And, no matter what The-Powers-That-Be explain, or how they twist and turn the truth, it has been very clear to me that they want unending war, (as stated in the article), ".....as long as hundreds of billions of dollars are made by weapons' producers."

Jon Stewart told many truths on The Daily Show; but I'll never forget the night he explained how the U.S. sold weapons to a country that then turned around and fought us with our own weapons. This has happened repeatedly. You think we in the U.S. would catch on by now.

In fact, Arundhati Roy is so correct in stating, "now war is called peace and black is called white."

Thanks for all the great comments as well as those critical ones! I have to keep this short as I'm about to travel in a day, sorry for that. Hence, I copy extracts from older comments of mine which are befitting this subject in the greater picture. For those who really have the interest I post a link to an excellent article by Consortiumnews which is worth the time reading it - read also the comment section.

I do appreciate that many people take the professional political talk at face value. However, if one compares the talk to the actual actions and maneuvers one can clearly see the big discrepancies IMO. Not only that but many official sources come out with contradictory statements as well as documents. One would just need to analyze them and put them in context. We can't expect to be spoon fed with what's actually going on on the ground.

From a comment of mine in April - about how the US interferes and manipulates in the ME and the old and never asked question "Cui Bono?"

~*~*~*~

We should not forget that of all 13 candidates for the 2012 presidential election Moh’d Morsi (and Geneeral Ahmed Shafiq, an old Mubarak crony) were way down at the very bottom with 1-digit percent figures ... and lo and behold a miracle happened: the both came out as the absolute "winners" of the first round and the other 11 way way behind them!!!

In the second round Egyptians then had the choice between the pest (Morsi) and the cholera (Shafiq). So they chose the cholera (Shafiq) and the presidential guard moved to his residence in the 5th Settlement as reported by many eye witnesses before the official announcement … which was delayed for 2 hours.

Suddenly we got news that there were hectic activities at the US Embassy with Egyptian officials in and out … and the presidential guards dismantling what they just set up at Shafiq’s residence … and then we heard the announcement that Moh’d Morsi was the new President of Egypt.

Fast forward: The people pretty quick realized what a fake they elected, revolted in June 2013 and the very same countries called it a "coup d'état" because their protégé (Brother Morsi) was kicked out. Until today every time one or several of them stand trial the "Western world" is up in arms and yes, they still refuse to list them as terrorists. You may recall that the Muslim Brothers said clearly on several occasions: “Either we rule Egypt or we burn it”.

Yet such statements as well as the almost daily terrorist attacks didn’t stop then Ambassador Anne Patterson to pay Khairat el Shatr (the grey eminence of the Brothers) a number or “private” visits in his downtown office …

Mid 2014 Mr. Cameron went on the records stating that "they (the Muslim Brothers) are a minority who deserve our protection" - totally disregarding the fact that since their ouster we have practically daily terror attacks onto security personnel as well as civilians alike. It goes without saying that for such "brown people" who die in those attacks there are nowhere any hashtags "#Je suis ...".

Cui Bono is never asked by anyone?

Cui Bono that they’re not outlawed? Because it would mean the Cameron Government would have to shut down the HQ of the MBs in London? They could not be received anymore by various US officials such as Congressmen, the Pentagon and the White House?

Cui Bono that Egypt was hit hard on the head by the WH when they dared to bombard ISIS in Libya?

Cui Bono that 34 loads of weapons were dropped “by accident” (acc. to CIA officials) on ISIS?

Cui Bono that the US flew over 3’000 sorties with roughly a 5% hit quote on ISIS? … and only after Russia stepped in the hit rate of the USAF improved slightly?

Cui Bono that the majority of refugees in Europe don’t come from war torn countries but from Morocco (majority) and African (Christian and Muslim) countries?

Cui Bono that suddenly Afghanis – after 15 years!! – “discover” that they have to flee their country?

Cui Bono that suddenly Syrians – who had temporary settled and adjusted in Arab countries like Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi, Egypt … - thought they should go to Europe?

Cui Bono that the European Continent gets totally destabilized?

How much more do people need to witness for themselves until they start connecting the most obvious dots?! None of the above serves the Arab and other countries where refugees come from; none of the above serves the "cause of Islam" as some want to have it. But it serves those interests who want to put a) Europe back in its place and b) divide all Arab countries into little and easy to manipulate and controllable "mini-states". It's all out there in numerous public literatures and reports starting with the Yinon Report of 1982, continued by "The Grand Chessboard" and by "Clean Break".

As Condoleeza Rice said in 2006 during her speech in Tel Aviv: "we need a constructive chaos in the Middle East". Chaos we have ... constructive is another question ..."

~*~*~*~

Add to this:

Cui Bono that the US drops the Kurds like hot potatoes and goes along with Turkey? Although it is a déjà-vu pattern as we know from the pre-war Iraq when the US instigated the Shia in Southern Iraq to raise up against Sadam Hussein and promising them all the help and support they need (as can be read in many official and semi-official government documents) ... only to drop them and watch them being butchered.

The list can be expanded ....

Roger - you say: "to believe that if we do nothing the barbarians will leave us alone is so laughable that I am rolling on the floor ROTFLOL... "

Don't hurt yourself while rolling on the floor ;-).

The way it looks today and IF one picks up the thread of history at the very end, than you sure have a point. BUT if one takes two steps back and looks at the "pro-active development" in the wider region one sees a very clear picture emerging.

It's not a comfortable one and one must step outside ones own comfort zone ... but that's how analyses and understanding work.

As the old saying goes (a bit altered): "It can be explain TO us - but it can't be understood FOR us". The thinking process can't be skipped by us.

I read the article and found it lacking on things like facts, it came over as an opinion rather than actually validating it's points. The site Globalresearch.ca is by no means an objectively reliable media source. The articles, videos, and other media it produces are highly skewed and often factually inaccurate. In fact it has very strong ties to organizations known for churning out blatant propaganda that have links to the Kremlin to defame and slander targeted groups such as Jews, Ukrainians, the United States, and other western countries. Given that a Wikileaks cable clearly quoted then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide. It is a bit rich to claim she is spreading it.

Louise - thanks for your comment. Before I disconnect for a few days till I've reached my new destination just that much: I find it interesting that you prefer to attack Globalresearch rather than simply double- and cross-check the information provided with other reliable sources if the facts presented are not enough in your opinion. Which is your right - I'd like to make that clear!

I often do further cross-checking EVEN if I trust the source. Nobody can take this responsibility off us. Again my opinion. For exactly this reason I've also posted a number of links where you can gain more insight/information and see the bigger picture.

Smearing Prof. Chossudovsky (a Jew himself) by insinuating that he has links to the Kremlin (as if this were something obscene!) and - to make matters worse - that he targets Jews is almost bordering on that famous and worn-out "anti-S......" wouldn't you say?

As for your last two sentences: "Given that a Wikileaks cable clearly quoted then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide. It is a bit rich to claim she is spreading it."

Maybe you missed that point but with normal people and in normal parlance someone who actively supports a regime like the one in Saudi Arabia and does moreover everything to keep it in power ... ultimately helps actively spreading their sick ideology. It's that simple. Rich? Yes ... but not by the author of the linked article but rather by the US Gov of which H. Clinton was a part and wants now even to become the President. Such moments trigger even me to say "God forbid!!".

PS Just to be clear - the unabated support of the Saudi Regime by the US has a long tradition; Clinton is at best to blame for wanting to continue the support as well as for taking the Millions of Dollars for her foundation; almost a minor detail given the amount of money at stake.

I believe this is another excellently written analysis worth reading … and double checking with all the given links in the article itself:

Hillary Clinton’s ‘Exceptionalist’ Warpath

“When we say America is exceptional, it doesn’t mean that people from other places don’t feel deep national pride, just like we do. It means that we recognize America’s unique and unparalleled ability to be a force for peace and progress, a champion for freedom and opportunity. Our power comes with a responsibility to lead, humbly, thoughtfully, and with a fierce commitment to our values. Because, when America fails to lead, we leave a vacuum that either causes chaos or other countries or networks rush in to fill the void.”
It’s either American tutelage or Armageddon, in other words, which is why countries that are smart and sensible know better than to resist. To round out her pro-war package, Clinton also promised to respond to foreign cyberattacks with military means – perhaps sending out drones to bomb Wikileaks? – and promised to deal with the world’s bullies as well.
“I know that we can’t cozy up to dictators,” she said. “We have to stand up to them.”
All this from a woman whose family foundation has received up to $25 million from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, perhaps the most repressive government on earth, plus up to $50 million from other Persian Gulf sources. (The Saudis also donated $10-million to the construction of the Bill Clinton presidential library.)

This article has some merit regarding British and U.S. interference for the sake of petroleum supplies, but it fails to take into account the many other factors ancient and more modern that have contributed to the conflict and unrest in the Arab countries. I find the article drastically simplistic and that its main thrust is to externalize responsibility and blame for what is going on in the middle east instead of holding accountable those planning and executing the conflict and atrocities. That kind of analysis is not only unrealistic but in the end unhelpful.

Funny you and your ilk conveniently forget The Bushes and republican war/ Big Oil responsibility for the Mess They created in the middle east in the first place.

How about the fact it was Reagan that supported the precursor to the Taliban in the 80's?

Why is that?.

That's right, because facts and reality get in the way of you RWNJ's narrative.

True progressives need to stand up and expose Hillary's war mongering. We can't ignore it just because she is a democrat.
