It’s a well known fact that America and Europe’s greatest ally in the Middle East is Israel. What isn’t as well known, is that their second greatest ally is Saudi Arabia. You know Saudi Arabia right? That’s the country which carries out public beheadings, has the death penalty for homosexuality, punishes victims of rape for the “crime of adultery” etc. Basically, Saudi Arabia is what you would get, if ISIS was a country. Yet somehow, this country is apparently a key ally of the liberal West, whose value system is supposed to be the exact opposite of all this.
Anyway, an investigation was conducted in the UK with regards to foreign funding of terrorism in the country. Apparently the report might not ever see the light of day, because it reveals something that is pretty well known to anyone who actually pays attention and researches this topic… that Saudi Arabia are the ones to blame.
An investigation into the foreign funding of extremist Islamist groups may never be published, the Home Office has admitted.
Sure why would the public want to know something like that? Why would the public care about finding out who is financing the terrorists that keep killing them?
The inquiry commissioned by David Cameron, was launched as part of a deal with the Liberal Democrats in December 2015, in exchange for the party supporting the extension of British airstrikes against Isis into Syria.
Yeah, sure. Airstrikes against ISIS. The same ISIS who are at war with Assad. The same Assad that David Cameron said, needs to be removed from power. Are we really supposed to believe that Cameron was bombing ISIS at the same time he was saying that Assad has to go?
But although it was due to be published in the spring of 2016, it has not been completed and may never be made public due to its “sensitive” contents.
“Sensitive”, meaning that it might anger the British public to learn that their government, as well as other governments all across the Western world, are allied with a country which finances the terrorists that are responsible for the spate of attacks in Europe the last few years.
It is thought to focus on Saudi Arabia, which the UK recently approved £3.5bn worth of arms export licences to.
The UK (and the US), as well as other Western states, arm Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia then arms terrorists. Terrorists then use arms to kill Western citizens. Therefore, Western governments are directly responsible for their own citizens being killed by terrorists.
A spokesperson from the Home Office told The Independent a decision on the publication of the report would be taken “after the election by the next government”.
Of course. It might effect the way the people choose to vote, if they found out that their government is arming the people who keep murdering them on the streets. My guess as well, is that the report won’t actually get published (at least not if the Conservative Party win). It will be flushed down the memory hole.
But in a separate interview with The Guardian, a spokesperson said the report may never be published, describing its contents were “very sensitive”.
It might offend our great ally Saudi Arabia. Sure, they share absolutely none of our values, and they’re directly responsible for so many deaths in our country, but we need them. They’re a great and trusted ally in our conflicts with all those other countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya etc, that never actually did anything to us.
Tom Brake, the Liberal Democrat foreign affairs spokesman, has written a letter to the Prime Minister pressing her on when the report will be published and what steps she proposes to take to address “one of the root causes of violent extremism in the UK”.
She’ll take absolutely no steps whatsoever. Not only that, she won’t even try to defend it, because there is literally no defence whatsoever. For example, lets look at this video, where an official is asked to justify their condemnation of Iran’s alleged lack of democracy, while turning a blind eye to Saudi Arabia’s much more blatant lack of democracy.
It’s absolutely incredible. The awkward silence is so long, that you could genuinely believe that the video had frozen for a while. There’s no moral justification whatsoever for the West’s undying defence of Saudi Arabia, while at the same time, they condemn countries like Syria and Iran for their alleged lack of democracy and human rights. The fact is, they don’t give a damn about either of these things. They’re just an excuse that they use to cover for their real motivations, whenever they want to launch a war or regime change against a targeted country.
“You will agree with me that the protection of our country, of the British people, is the most important job of any government,” he wrote. “Certainly, more important than potential trade deals with questionable regimes, which appear to be the only explanation for your reticence.
No, they don’t agree with you at all. They don’t give a damn about protecting the British people.
“When will this report be finished and published? And what steps do you propose to take to address one of the root causes of violent extremism in the UK?”
“Never” and “none”.
Mr Brake accused Ms May of adopting a “short-sighted approach” to the funding of violent Islamist groups in the UK and urged that those who fund them should be called out publicly.
Accusing the Conservatives of being “worried about upsetting their dodgy friends in the Middle East”, he said party had “broken their pledge to investigate funding of violent Islamist groups in the UK”.
He added: “That short-sighted approach needs to change. It is critical that these extreme, hard line views are confronted head on, and that those who fund them are called out publicly.”
But…but… that might offend our great and trusted ally. We need to be more tolerant and accepting of them, when they finance the terrorists that kill our people.
It comes after Home Secretary Amber Rudd suggested during a leadership debate, that UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia are good for industry.
That’s all that matters to these people. Making money. Who cares about the long term effects of their short term greed?
The Government has recently approved £3.5bn worth of arms export licences to Saudi Arabia and a stream of British ministers have visited the kingdom to solicit trade, despite its ongoing involvement in the bombing campaign in Yemen.
Meanwhile they constantly condemn Assad and Russia for bombing ISIS strongholds
Government figures compiled by Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) show the UK has licenced over £4.1 billion of arms to the Middle East since the last election in May 2015, and that two thirds of UK arms exports go to the Middle East.
And then some of those exported arms come right back into the UK and get used against UK citizens.
