MDI Comment: A Channel 4 (UK) expose on the Baathist leadership behind ISIS (ISIL), and how Saddam Hussein’s new ‘Islamic facade’ strategy to combat the coming American invasion, has been continued after his capture and execution, by his cynical and Secular ex-Baathist military officers under a new name – ISIS.
The Secular Baathist leadership of ISIS was revealed globally by Der Speigel Magazine, who published documents from a captured dead leader of ISIS.
ISIS’s baathist leadership showed their hand again, by capturing and executing the judge who sentenced Saddam Hussein to death – saying it was done in revenge for his sentence against who they described as ‘martyr Saddam’.
More recently, a defector from ISIS leaked thousands of top secret documents of ISIS recruits (which have been verified to be partially accurate to known members). The defector had joined ISIS from the Free Syrian Army, originally believing them to be Islamic, but then found out how ISIS’s leadership is ruled by Baathists and not concerned with Islamic rules (except the outward facade it presents through its media). The UK’s SKY News reported:
‘The man who stole it was a former Free Syrian Army convert to Islamic State who calls himself Abu Hamed.
Disillusioned with the Islamic State leadership, he says it has now been taken over by former soldiers from the Iraqi Baath party of Saddam Hussein.
He claims the Islamic rules he believed have totally collapsed inside the organisation, prompting him to quit’
Other defectors from ISIS have said the same, with former Baathist generals explaining the lure of ISIS after America disbanded the iraqi army. It is important for Muslims to be aware that ISIS isn’t actually Islamic, but is yet again another case of Secular powers using Islamic labels to manipulate naive Muslims into doing their bidding.
In Libya, it has been reported that former fighters for the secular Libyan regime of Muammar Gaddafi, have reassembled under the name ‘ISIS’ in Gaddafi’s central former stronghold of Sirte.
Of course, Islamophobes, Western politicians who support constant intervention in the Muslim world, and so-called ‘counter-extremists’ pundits want very desperately to identify ISIS’s cynical and ghastly actions as part of Islam. This enables them to (illogically) accuse the Muslim community of being complicit with the rise if ISIS for not integrating into the Western world order, and they demand that Muslims must ‘reform’ (secularise) Islam, because somehow unreformed Islam is ‘linked’ to ISIS.
It is important to point out that ISIS does not emanate from any interpretation of Islam, they use Islam like SISI, the Secular President of Egypt when he obtained a fatwa to kill protestors against him, and how Bashar al Assad uses the label of Islam to motivate Hezbollah and Shia militias to fight for him. Secular rulers in (and outside the Middle East) have had a history of cynically using Islamic labels to justify their cynical, horrific and less-than-Islamic actions to the religious populations they dominate over in the Middle East (who unfortunately are mostly politically illiterate in Islamic laws after colonialism).
The only solution is for the Muslim world to educate itself in holistic Islam (including its laws, political and economic solutions, and only then will they cease being manipulated by Secular self-serving criminal governments and warlords).
