The terrorists that carried out the attacks in Paris on Friday are part of a terror network fueled by the United States to eliminate the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and other sovereign states that operate independently from US foreign policy, a political analyst in Virginia says.

“These groups were essentially fomented by the CIA and by American foreign policy as a means of destabilizing the Assad government in Syria,” said Keith Preston, the chief editor and director of

At least 129 people were killed and over 350 others were injured in the French capital on Friday night, in the deadliest attacks to hit the country since the Second World War.

Since 2011, the US government has been avidly working to destabilize and foment an insurgency in Syria, Preston told Press TV on Sunday.

“And the purpose behind that is to eliminate independent nationalist regimes in the Middle East that are independent of Washington,” he added.

On Saturday, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum blamed the administration of US President Barack Obama for the creation of Daesh (ISIL), after the terrorist group claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks.

He said that the terrorist group “is a creation of a political decision by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to abandon Iraq — against all of our generals’ recommendations, against all of the policy recommendations.”

ISIL terrorists, who were initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government, now control parts of Syria and Iraq. They have been engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control.

Observers say while the US and its allies claim they are fighting against terrorist groups like ISIL, they in fact helped create and train those organizations to affect their policies in the Middle East.

Notice ISIS says it will not attack Israel,and it doesnt – all for “Greater Israel ” still on the cards with the help of the US military . When will the US/UK break free of Jewish domination ?
