Israel funding Daesh terrorists: Trump

Press TV – December 15, 2015

US Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has implied that Israel is supporting Daesh (ISIL) by “sending massive amounts of money” to the Takfiri terrorists in Syria and Iraq.

Trump made the remarks in a recent interview with the Morning Joe show, shortly before he cancelled his trip to Israel.

“Some of our so-called allies that we work with and that we protect militarily, they are sending massive amounts of money to ISIS and to al-Qaeda and to others,” he said, using an alternative acronym for the terrorist group.

Asked about who he was talking about, Trump said “you know who it is. What do I have to bring it up for? You know who it is.”

He said that he will not mention US allies which support Daesh because of his relationship with Israelis, but noted that no one talks about Israel, even though everyone is aware of support Israel and other states provide to ISIL.

“There are, but I’m not gonna say it, because I have a lot of relationships with people. But there are. And you know that. And everybody knows that. And nobody says it. Nobody talks about it,” Trump said.

The multi-billionaire businessman said the US government knows about it, suggesting checking records to insure his claims are true.

“All you have to do is check your records. Our government knows the countries,” he stated.

On Thursday, Trump cancelled his plan to visit Israel, saying he would reschedule “at a later date after I become President of the US.”

One reason he mentioned why he had called off his visit was that he did not want to put Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “under pressure.”

Trump’s campaign has been marked by controversy from the start, but he leads the GOP field with 33 percent support among Republican primary voters.

According to American writer Mickey Z., “It’s always interesting when Donald Trump peels away a propaganda layer to offer a tiny glimpse at the corporate-political brotherhood.”

  1. I have written derisively time and again that today’s America deserves Trump. I still believe and aver that, but: if this nutcase somehow creates a dynamic whereby the Zionist “state” of Israel can be exposed and subjected to a “normal” level of scrutiny and criticism, the endangered Palestinians may attain significant momentum in their quest to have recognized their legitimate aspirations for ending the hated illegal Zionist occupation of them and their land and for a full measure of justice for them. Thus, I can only write “Go Donald! Go Get Zionist Israel In All Of Its Rottenness And Psychotic Criminality!” Viva Palestine!

    • I don’t doubt that Trump is telling the truth(in this case anyway) but it must be galling to the American people that it is their money being used by Israel(US$3Billion/year and God only knows how much in private donations from some “Philanthropists”)………………

      • Funding Israel or funding ISIL, not much difference really.

  2. if Trump achieves nothing more than exposing the across the board inability of the western media to freely comment about US & Israeli direct involvement in terrorism, ethnic cleansing, mass murder and other war crimes, he will be fondly remembered. If he can free the western media from totalitarian supervision, censorship and direction he may set the preconditions for a revolutionary outbreak of informed citizen democracy. Devoutly to be wished! M\\

    • Breaking the grip of PC has value all in itself.

      I remember when using the word “Palestinian” was “anti-Semitic.”

      • Just about anything can be seen as “anti-Semitic” if your comments upset certain people.

        If you have been branded as anti-Semitic, you’re probably getting too close to the truth………………….
