In recent decades, the Middle East has been at the forefront of devastating crises that have resulted in civil and regional conflicts. Meanwhile, the dangerous Takfiri doctrine, which is backed by Saudi Arabia, has emerged as a new phenomenon in Middle Eastern politics.
Israel and several Arab regimes have been using extremist groups to achieve their vicious ambitions. The Saudi-backed Takfiris, who emerged from the shadows following the Arab Spring, are the Middle East’s most recent security challenge.
The overthrow of Arab dictators has resulted in a power vacuum, making the region a haven for militant groups like ISIS and Al-Nusra Front. Ultimately, the ISIS terrorists managed to seize control of vast areas in both Iraq and Syria.
What’s interesting about the Takfiri groups is that they would not have been able to survive without a great deal of Saudi-Israeli assistance. Many shared interests can now be distinguished between Zionists and Takfiri terrorists.
The Zionist regime has long sought a chance to advance its expansionism and keep Damascus away from the Axis of Resistance. Tel Aviv saw ISIS’ arrival in the region as a golden opportunity to promote its illegitimate agendas.
Tel Aviv did not take direct action in the early days of the Syrian conflict, instead of assisting Takfiri rebels led by Al-Nusra Front, who were fighting near Israeli borders in the occupied Golan Heights. However, as the situation in Syria became more complicated and the interests of various powers in the country collided, Israel started attacking the Syrian Army to assist Takfiri terrorists.
In addition, the Zionists assisted ISIS rebels in many ways, including treating the wounded ISIS terrorists in military hospitals in the occupied Golan Heights, purchasing oil from ISIS through Turkish intermediaries, and supplying sophisticated Israeli arms to ISIS rebels.
It is of utmost interest to say that ISIS terrorist never threatened Israel during Syria’s ten-year-long conflict and even apologized to Israel for inadvertently targeting the Golan Heights. The most critical issue to note in this respect is that ISIS made no announcement opposing the US embassy’s relocation to Al-Quds.
Today, the Zionist regime’s support for Takfiri terrorists is only but a serious impediment to international attempts to combat terrorism and extremists in the region.
To further its regional goals by causing chaos, Israel’s support for the Takfiris and their shared interest attests to the fact that Tel Aviv does play a vital role in the formation and growth of terrorist organizations in the Middle East.
