Comment: How is ISIL funded with George Galloway

PressTV Presents COMMENT with host George Galloway


The ISIL terrorist group, with members from several Western countries, now controls parts of Iraq and Syria, and has been involved in a series of heinous crimes during recent years against civilians and government forces in the two Arab countries.

Many believe that ISIL Takfirism is largely influenced by Wahhabism, the radical ideology that has strong presence in Saudi Arabia and freely preached by Saudi scholars. Riyadh has long been accused of supporting terrorist organizations such as the ISIL in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere as maintained by the governments in Damascus and Baghdad.

Turkey has also been one of the main supporters of the militancy against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with reports showing that Ankara actively trains and arms militants operating in Syria. Recent documents published by the Turkish daily, Cumhuriyet, exposed direct contacts between Turkish intelligence service (MIT) and ISIL militants.

In this episode of Comment, we see how some Western countries and their regional allies have helped fund ISIL through purchasing the oil smuggled out of Iraq and Syria, the historical artifacts, and other direct and indirect ways.

    Why is their no comment from the editors about Galloways insistence that 19 Arabs attacked America on 911, and the holohoaux is real.
    Surely someone who is right up there with Middle East politics, Galloway is not speaking for the unspeakable, he’s speaking rubbish.
    However,his work re the Palestinians is admirable, but is that to draw in the sheeple? and then feed us dribble about false flags.

      Frog, with over 200 writers and broadcasters, there is just no way that everyone will have the same perspectives. In fact, to make sure everyone knows we disclose clear in BOLD RED FONT just above the comments here in the grey box the following “The views expressed herein are the views of the author exclusively and not necessarily the views of VT, VT authors, affiliates, advertisers, sponsors, partners, technicians, or the Veterans Today Network and its assigns”

      So keep posting great comments. Agree and disagree with VT writers and broadcasters. That’s the great part about VT….we encourage civil discourse and seek it. So keep up the good energy!
