Mary Bancroft – Master Spy

“I can’t understand what the f–k you are saying.” The voice came from an elderly lady in the back row of my computer class. It was from Mary Bancroft, a part owner of The Wall Street Journal. She is the author of Autobiography of a Spy and was the woman behind the plot to kill Hitler, the lover of CIA chief, Allen Dulles, the lady who invited me to dinner to meet Woody Allen and, yes, Mary Bancroft was my computer student.

ISIL’s Brand of Islam Comes from Saudi Arabia

The first Saudi King, Abdul Aziz, formed an alliance Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, the founder of Wahhabism, which became and still is the foundation and law of the Saudi kingdom.

Now, Saudi Arabia has joined the United States in bombing its own believers, the Wahhabis of ISIL. They are doing this to protect the Saudi King and his vast royal family.

Caliph Ibrahim, also known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is doing exactly the same thing as—and in the same—way as King Abdul Aziz did, when he invaded what is now Saudi Arabia.

Caliph Ibrahim is today’s King Abdul Aziz.

The new Caliphate or Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, has an exclusive commitment to the Saudi Wahhabi movement of Sunni Islam.

The Caliphate

The Caliphate

The King of Saudi Arabia and the monarchs of the adjacent countries have placed themselves on a very slippery slope by attacking ISIL. The one-percenters of Saudi Arabia and the related monarchies are by and large in favor of Wahhabism.

ISIL is, in no way, a deviant from the beliefs of Saudi Arabia formed by King Abdul Aziz. Under Wahhabi Islam in Saudi Arabia, people were not allowed to sing or even whistle in the street and if they did, the punishment was harsh and swift.

In Saudi Arabia, even today, punishment for crimes takes place on the first Friday after conviction—with no appeals or delays.

Decapitations, the cutting of hands and canings take place at the mosque as a part of its religious ceremony.

ISIL’s beheadings are no different than what goes on in Saudi Arabia and is in keeping with the views of most of the Saudi population.

ISIL’s beheadings are horrific. However, in the eyes of Arab Muslims, their numbers pale when weighed against the 500,000 Muslims who died as a result of the Iraq War, 100,000 of whom were killed directly by the American coalition.

Beyond being a theeat to the head of the King of Saudi Arabia and his fellow monarchs, ISIL is a major threat to the world’s oil supply.

To date, ISIL has captured significant oil production facilities in Iraq, and is marketing the oil at only $30 a barrel. Speculators, buying at that price, and re-selling at the “official price” of around $100 a barrel are making fortunes.

ISIL’s vast revenues permit it to purchase the most modern arms, which are in addition to those they have captured in Iraq, Syria, and even Libya.

Most Arab Muslims resent having lost their Caliphate and having it cut up, artificially, into nations such as Syria, Iraq, Palestine and Jordan.

Muslims of all creeds have longed for the day when the borders created by the West are erased and the glory of the Caliphate be restored. The Caliphate is a holy state founded by Prophet Mohammed, the first Caliph being his companion and successor Abu Bakr.

ISIL is restoring the Caliphate, and, in the eyes of many, restoring glory to the Arab nation.
