The 100-Year-Old Agreement You Need to Know About to Understand What’s Driving the Islamic State [Update]

If you are one of probably millions of Americans who do not really understand what is going on with this Islamic State terrorist war, you WILL understand after reading Glenn Beck’s article over at The Blaze.com!

Update:  Gulag Bound goes even further in exposing the collusion between 0bama and ISIL (including Iran!)

Fmr. Navy SEAL Carl Higbie: Over 90% Of Troops Do Not Support Obama

Our military generals and brass are also at odds with Obama and what does Obama do over it? He says he knows better than our military leaders and just to follow orders — meanwhile, quit spying in Europe (or pretend to at least – the alternative is to leave us even more vulnerable to our enemies, which may be the point). Well, that is getting old. The military sees what is coming and it isn’t pretty. It’s not just ISIS and the Caliphate either. They are fronts and tools for Russia in the end. The Russian Bear and the Chinese Dragon are closing in for the kill and Obama, the Arsonist-in-Chief, fiddles while America burns — and smiles as he imagines the demise of the Land of the Free and the rise of Islam. While Obama bombs various countries, claiming he is destroying ISIS, it is more akin to pinpricks and foreplay than serious warfare. He is arming the Syrian rebels and I hate to state the obvious, but the rebels are al Qaeda and ISIS. Obama is warring against Assad. All smoke and mirrors… and on the surface it makes absolutely no sense. On the one hand, Obama is colluding with Iran to fight ISIS… and on the other, fighting Assad. When in fact Iran supports Assad and ISIS. As in the end, I believe Obama does as well. None of this is real fighting — it is political war theater. In the end, we are distracted from the real RISK players — Russia and China.

This last week saw the continuing invasion of the Ukraine by the Russkies and the world yawned. Did you know both the Ukraine and Russia are now speaking of nuclear war? I’m not so sure it’s just posturing, or that the world should treat it like the ‘boy who cried wolf.’ Putin is a monster and if dropping a few nukes furthers his empire, well… you have to break a few eggs to rule the world. The Pope says we are in the opening salvo of WWIII and on that point, I agree.

Sweden has now summoned the Russian Ambassador for a dressing down after two Russian planes violated Swedish airspace last week. They have also raised their military readiness over these incursions and the Ukraine situation. Sweden views Russia as a clear and present threat, and so they should.

Lest you think Russia will just leave us be, think again. Russian nuclear bombers just buzzed Northern Europe and Alaska — again. They are testing a nuclear bear hug for us and we shout ‘dandelion!’ and off we go in the wrong direction. Nuclear sabre rattling will eventually give way to war.

Bill Gertz:

Six Russian aircraft, including two Bear H nuclear bombers, two MiG-31 fighter jets and two IL-78 refueling tankers were intercepted by F-22 fighters on Wednesday west and north of Alaska in air defense identification zones, said Navy Capt. Jeff A. Davis, a spokesman for the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command. Two other Bears were intercepted by Canadian jets on Thursday.

“The group of Russian aircraft flew a loop south, returning westward toward Russia,” Davis told the Free Beacon.

A day later two more Bear bombers were intercepted by Canadian CF-18 jets in the western area of the Canadian air defense identification zone near the Beaufort Sea, north of Alaska, he said.

The Russian bombers did not enter U.S. airspace but flew within 63 miles of the Alaskan coast and 46 miles of the Canadian coastline, Davis said.

In both instances, the Russian bombers did not enter sovereign airspace, he added, noting the Russian aircraft flew within about 55 nautical miles of the Alaskan coastline, and within about 40 nautical miles of the Canadian coastline.

Defense officials think this was timed by Putin for the visit of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to the US and Canada. Could be, but any excuse will do. Russia will continue to probe our defense limits and assess our military weaknesses, which are substantial currently.

Putin is now bragging he could take the capitols of five countries within two days if he chose to do so. Just two days ago, he threatened to invade Poland, Romania and the Baltic states:

“If I wanted, in two days I could have Russian troops not only in Kiev, but also in Riga, Vilnius, Tallinn, Warsaw and Bucharest,” Mr Putin allegedly told President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine, reported Süddeustche Zeitung, a German newspaper.

Back to the original post:

If you watch the news often (especially Fox News, like I do) then you are getting bits and pieces of information that often seem like a jumbled up mess! We hear pundits labeling the terrorists as  ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) or IS (Islamic State); yet 0bama and many in his BADministration call the terrorist group ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant).

In a previous post, I shared information about the difference between the acronyms being used, and also provided a link to another blog that revealed the explanation regarding the difference between the ISIS and ISIL acronym labels.  Within the discussion over there and at my site, we see exactly why 0bama prefers to call it ISIL.

When you read Beck’s article and view the videos there, you will get a needed history lesson in order to genuinely understand what is at stake and what is really going on!

Has it seemed to you that 0bama’s comments about “what we won’t do” (i.e. “there will be no American Military boots on the ground) is odd because it is telling the enemy the strategy (or lack thereof) in this “not war” against ISIS?

Has it seemed like a propaganda route is being used to get Congress to agree to “arm the moderates” in Syria? Recall that months ago, polls showed that such an idea was absolutely REFUSED by the majority of the American people as well as most members in Congress? What has changed?  What caused  such a reversal in decision-makers in Congress as well as the mindset of people in the United States and Britain? Was it because of the beheadings?

Has it seemed like the 0bama BADministration has been at odds with our military generals who think that it was a mistake for 0bama to state, unequivocally, that there “will be no U.S. military boots on the ground?”

Does it seem like this government of ours has switched sides in the war on terror by manipulation and deceit?  It does to me!

Is it just a coincidence that Hamas in the Palestinian territory sent thousands of missiles into Israel which (thank God!) were intercepted and exploded in the air by the Iron Dome defense?  Where did Hamas get the money and weapons?  From Libya perhaps?  BENGHAZI WAS ABOUT TRANSFERRING WEAPONS and when things went awry, our ambassador and 3 Americans who tried to save him ended up dead.   Hmmm….connect the dots and we can see a clearer picture of what is really going on!  From the moment of the “Arab Spring,” up until now, Glenn Beck was CORRECT about the desire of Islamists to bring about a caliphate in order to conquer the lands that were previously held by dictators.  Of course, the democratic State of Israel is included in the path of destruction.

I could go on and on with questions and comments like these. But let’s get to the article.

Excerpt:

Glenn Beck broke down the history of the Middle East on his television program Thursday, focusing on a nearly 100-year-old agreement that he says is integral to understanding the motivations of the Islamic State: the Sykes-Picot Agreement.

If you do not understand the Sykes-Picot Agreement, Beck said, you cannot fully understand the Islamic State, or why the Israelis and the Palestinians will never reach a two-state solution.

Though many go back to 1948 and the creation of the modern state of Israel when examining the history of Middle Eastern conflicts, Beck said you actually have to go back to 1916 and World War I.

“This is the last time the Arab world had a united Islamic State led by a religious leader: the Ottoman Empire, the caliphate,” Beck began. “The Allies knew the Ottoman Empire could shut down key shipping routes and cripple Britain’s economy, France’s. … They had to neutralize it. So Great Britain sent over an Army officer from Britain, and his name was T.E. Lawrence. There was a movie made about him, a great movie with Peter O’Toole called ‘Lawrence of Arabia.’”

Lawrence was tasked with convincing the Arabs to fight against the Ottoman Empire. After Lawrence promised the Arabs rule over a new united Arab kingdom of greater Syria — which encompassed present day Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and parts of Iraq and Jordan — he succeeded.

“To get to the root of the current Middle East conflict, that is your starting point,” Beck said. “It is at the center of everything that is happening today.”

“The problem here — Great Britain never intended to honor the promises that they made,” Beck continued. “They had used the Arabs in order to protect their own interests. Remember, they needed to get the Ottoman Empire out of the way.”

Sykes-Picot Agreement

“The entire time Lawrence was negotiating with the Arabs, Great Britain, behind everybody’s back, was negotiating with France, and planning how they were going to actually divide up the Middle East after the war,” Beck said. “They needed to make sure there was no united Arab kingdom that would ever get in the way.”

Under the Sykes-Picot agreement, the British and the French drew new boundaries, fracturing the region so, Beck said, “the British and their allies in the region could control it.”

“Remember, the goal was to divide the Arabs, not to unite them, divide them, so they could protect the trade routes,” Beck said. “They didn’t care about the Arabs, they didn’t care about the Jews, they didn’t care about anything. They wanted the trade routes.”

“The Arabs were forced to accept this western European model of the nation-states because they had no choice,” Beck remarked. “Arab resentment grows in the wake of that treaty, Sykes-Picot, where they have divided everything and made new lines. They wanted — the Palestinians, the Arabs — what was promised to them — the rule of greater Syria.”

The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

In the decades after the Sykes-Picot Agreement, after the Ottoman Empire collapsed, the British created the British Mandate for Palestine. The area east of the Jordan River was called Transjordan, and the area west of it was a land for the Jewish people.

“How would the Arab world be able to unite now? They needed a new rallying cry. They would use the Balfour Declaration, Britain’s promise of a Jewish homeland in Palestine,” Beck said. “[They] needed to start blaming the Jews, the pawns.”

“The motive becomes clear when you see how the Arab world reacted when the British Mandate in Palestine was set to expire,” Beck said. “The Palestinian Arabs were about to be presented with a chance to finally have what they said they’d always dreamed of. All they wanted was their own land. So now, here comes the UN, and they have this mandate.”

“Remember, the British put together this partition — Transjordan and the Israeli state. So it was a two-state solution. It was split 56 percent Jewish, 43 percent Arab. 56 looks big, but much of the land’s not sufficient for crops, so it’s pretty close. Jerusalem, an international zone. The Jewish people accepted the plan. And if a Palestinian homeland was the goal for the Arab world — not the Palestinians, the Arab world — all they had to do was agree. But remember, the scapegoat goes away.”

“The real goal … was uniting the Arab kingdom, one united Arab kingdom, a return of the Ottoman Empire, gaining control of greater Syria,” Beck said. “If you make peace with Israel, that all goes out the window. So when they were presented with what they said they always wanted, a nation of their own, they said no. And then all hell broke loose.”

The Arab world promised that they would get the Palestinians a homeland, waging all-out war on Israel.

“By all reasonable estimates, Israel should have been utterly destroyed. Five Arab armies with huge advantages in armor, artillery, and air force [were against it]. Despite suffering huge casualties early on, somehow this tiny new nation, the Jewish people, managed to stave off the assault and then go on the offensive,” Beck said.

But one aspect of the War of 1948 isn’t often taught, Beck said.

“Before the war broke out, Jordan made a secret deal with Israel. They wanted the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Jews weren’t promised this land in the UN partition, so they agreed to let Jordan take it,” Beck said. “Jordan actually attacked Palestinian Arabs to get that land. Where is that in the history books? Egypt wanted southern Palestine. Iraq wanted the entire fertile crescent under their control, and Syria and Lebanon wanted northern Palestine — where was the Palestinian state?”

“You see, it wasn’t about freedom for the Palestinian Arabs, or the Jewish occupation. This war was what wars are always about — land, power, control,” Beck said. “Israelis today remember it as the war of Independence. Palestinians call it the nakba, ‘catastrophe.’ …But when you actually know the history, the only catastrophe was when the Palestinians rejected their chance of a nation of their own, and then were sold out by their Arab neighbors.”

Sykes-Picot and the Islamic State

“I know I read about [the Sykes-Picot Agreement] years ago when we were at Fox, and I put it up on the chalkboard,” Beck remarked. “But it didn’t all fall into place until I learned about ISIS and ISIL, and the difference between ISIS and ISIL. Now it all makes sense to me, and now you’ll be able to figure out what is really going on.”

Radical Islamists in the Islamic State — also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant — are trying to regain the territory they were promised before the Sykes-Picot Agreement, Beck said. If you understand that, the revolutions of the Arab Spring and the goals of the Islamic State become much clearer.

“How do you get there?” Beck asked, pointing to the map of the territory the Islamic State is trying to recover. “First thing you do, you have to destabilize the region. And how do you destabilize the region? What did Sykes-Picot do? Sykes-Picot made all of these new maps, and they drew new borders that had never been drawn before. And these borders put people who were never together under one rule, the British knowing that if they did that, it would take a strong man to keep them from fighting and killing each other.”

To get rid of the Sykes-Picot Agreement, Beck said “you have to go after the dictators.”

“Our president, and all of us, cheered when we got rid of the dictators in Egypt … Libya … Iraq … Now we’re going after Syria,” Beck said. “Next will be Jordan and Lebanon, and then Israel.”

“Look at the map,” Beck said. “The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. … They’re doing nothing but remolding the map closer to their heart’s desire, and what they were promised 100 years ago. Now is their opportunity to achieve what they’ve always wanted from the very beginning: a return to a unified Arab kingdom. What a surprise, a caliphate. Islamic rule. There’s no judgment on this one way or another — this is just the fact. They want an end to the west and what the west created with Sykes-Picot. To get there, the best way to do it is to destabilize all these dictators, get them out of the way.”

Beck said the Israelis and the Palestinians have been used as scapegoats for decades.

“You think this is a crazy theory?” Beck asked. “Here’s ISIL in their own words on what’s happening, why are they doing this.”

Beck proceeded to play an Islamic State propaganda video titled “The End of Sykes-Picot”:

“You’ll notice this is playing all over the Middle East,” Beck said. “Here they are, on the Syrian border, showing how they’ve erased it, and how Britain and France lied to the Arab world.”

Beck said radical Islamists will use anyone, including the Jews and the Palestinians, to achieve their goals, and that is why “there will never be a two-state solution.”

“That’s not the goal, never has been,” Beck concluded. “Until the region is fully under Arab control, the fighting will never, ever, ever stop. There is no easy solution. I don’t know how you turn the cycle of violence around. But the first thing you have to do is put facts in place. You have to start with the truth.”

Go to The Blaze to see a free video clip of Glenn’s show on this issue, as well as the propaganda video done by ISIS where they state their desire to end Sykes-Picot.

President George W. Bush warned us back in 2006  of this Islamic Caliphate erupting if Iraq is not a free and democratic country:

 

Now we know why the Conservative Republicans in the House voted against arming the “moderates” in Syria.

People…we could be very close to WWIII – which may even lead to the Battle of Armageddon.

Once again, I must share that we are witnessing Biblical prophecy right before our very eyes!
