— The Erimtan Angle —

‘In this video below Luke Rudkowski talks about the latest developments in the middle east that bring to light many contradictions (14 Dec 2014)’.

Rudkowski’s assertions are clearly based on “factual reporting” and well-respected sources. In fact, Vice News did a good job on documenting Israeli complicity with a number of Islamist militants occupying the Golan Heights on the Israeli border.[1]  And now there is also the testimony of a certain Yousaf al-Salafi that implicates the U.S. as well. Abu Hussein for Counter Current News writes that an “alleged ISIS member who is thought to be a Pakistani commander named Yousaf al-Salafi, has said that the terror group [ISIS/ISIL or IS] receives regular funding from the United States. Al-Salafi has confessed to the Pakistani ISI intelligence agency, that he has received funds for the terror group via U.S. funders. Al-Salafi was arrested in Lahore, along with two companions, on January 22, according to the news agency, the AFP”.[2]

From Lahore, Mubasher Bukhari writes for Reuters that “Pakistani security forces have arrested a man they believe is the commander of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria in the country as well as two accomplices involved in recruiting and sending fighters to Syria, intelligence sources said on Wednesday [, 21 Jan 2015]. Authorities in South Asia are concerned about the rise of the jihadist group in a region already beset by home-grown insurgencies fighting to topple local governments and set up strict Islamic rule”.[3]  Abu Hussein, for his part, continues that “[d]uring investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organization in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria,” the Urdu-language Daily Express reported from a source in the ISI, speaking on the condition of anonymity. The news agency’s sister newspaper The Express Tribune said that he has been receiving around $600 per person he sends to Syria for training”.[4]  And here is RT’s Gayane Chichakyan explaining the issue on 28 January 2015.
