European Organization for Security and Information Secretary-General Ambassador Dr. Haitham Abu stated that Israel embarked on purchasing huge estates between Tal Afar and Mosul via businessmen who set up oil and water projects during the US invasion of Iraq. ISIS is selling Iraq to Israel, one hectare at a time.
How ISIS Sends Oil to Israel
Long ago, there was an operating pipeline from the Kirkuk oil fields in Iraq to the Port of Haifa in Palestine. When Israel chose to create a Jewish Only state, the pipeline was shut down. Now, with the partnership between ISIS and Israel, the Kirkuk Haifa pipeline may well become a reality.
ISIS has seized several oil rich areas of Iraq including a portion of the Kirkuk oil fields, among the largest in the world. We are told ISIS survives on revenue from, among other things, “stolen oil.” However, there is no way to transport stolen oil, no legal market to buy or refine it and no way to send it anywhere unless you can convince a government, let’s say, the government of Turkey, to transport stolen Iraqi crude through its pipeline system, owned in partnership with Israel.
“Israel failed to transfer crude oil from Kirkuk to Haifa. But, it succeeded in re-activating the “Ovakoy” crossing between Turkey and Iraq, through which the stolen crude oil goes to the Mediterranean Ceyhan port via “Tilak.” After this pipeline was disrupted, the oil passed from Kirkuk to Syrian Banyas port. Israel benefited indirectly from the Turkish pipeline, because of the sizeable Israeli families residing in that region, which stretched out to “Tal Afar.” Israel was plotting to establishing a Kurdish state in North Iraq through bringing Kurdish Jews from Palestine to this region,” he said.
“However, for Israel, putting the Kirkuk-Haifa pipeline into operation was the ultimate end, and in order to make its objective realizable, Israel planned to create havoc in northern Iraq. The US, which saw a common interest in this scheme, concerted its efforts with Israel to make this part of Iraq exposed to disarray, and vulnerable to political and military imbroglio, which expected to lead in the future to a direct clash between the Kurds, on one hand, and Iran and Syria, on the other,” he added.
“The so-called ‘Arab spring’, came into being after Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke about ‘creative chaos’ in 2006, as Israel failed to eliminate the last resistance stronghold of Hezbollah.”
The US military and its allies in 2003 and 2005, positioned their military units near oil pumping stations H1 and H2, under the pretext of attacking Abu Musab al-Zarqawi between Haditha and Jordan; and later staged an air operation near Al Qaem and north of the line connecting Mosul, Tal Afar and Sinjar. Those military forays fell in the context of re-operating the Kirkuk-Haifa pipeline,” Bou Said said.
“Supported by the US and its allies, Israel considered the idea of creating extremist groups of Islamic color, that would be under the control of its security apparatuses. That was the beginning of the establishment of what is known as today the Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant under the banner of the “al-Zarqawi.”
Those groups were financed by some Arab and Gulf countries, and Turkey. The Israeli project aimed at striking Turkey’s economic role in the Mediterranean and obstructing the oil passage from Kirkuk to Ceyhan port. In parallel, the extremist group’s mission was to disseminate chaos in the region to ensure the flow of oil from Kirkuk to Haifa,” Bou remarked.
“After the fallout of this project, Turkey made some changes in its attitude towards the regional issues, and the United States realized the necessity to preserve its interests and those of Israel, even if it had to make some concessions by wrapping up a deal on Iran’s nuclear program,” he said.
“It is predicted that the US will make changes in its foreign policies towards its traditional allies before their regimes collapse. Moreover, the Democrats are seeking now to reproduce Obama policies in an attempt to attain the driving seat in the forthcoming presidential elections. For this reason, the incumbent US administration will not engage in any military action, nor give the militants quality weapons that would endanger its new interests and calculations,” Bou concluded.
