Recent attacks by ISIS sympathizers in Paris, London and San Bernardino, California, are not random acts of mindless violence and gory atrocities.

Far from it, they are part of a well-developed strategy by the Islamic State, or ISIS, to draw the western powers into a far larger war in the Mideast. They are being aided in this quest by the loud-mouthed right of American, British and French politics.

They are drawing inspiration from the defeats of the Anglo-British army of Hicks Pasha in the Sudan in 1883 that was lured up the Nile then ambushed and swamped by 300,000 Dervish and tribal warriors. And by the defeat in Afghanistan of the British at Maiwand in the second Anglo-Afghan War of 1880.

Five years ago, I asked an Iranian militant if he did not fear a US invasion of Iran. “We will welcome one,” he told me with a smile. “America will break its teeth on Iran.”

Five years later, it’s the turn of ISIS militants to advocate the same strategy.

The objective of ISIS and other anti-western groups is not to kill Americans, Britons and French, as many foolishly believe, but to drive the western Great Powers out of their hold over the Mideast and Muslim world.

My second book, “American Raj – How American Rules the Muslim World,” is all about this little understood subject. No American publisher would handle this taboo subject. The book was printed in Canada and other countries.

What we call “terrorism,” a mindless, empty term, is really blowback, a reaction from our meddling in the Mideast and South Asia.

All Muslim nations that have tried to stand up to western domination – Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Sudan, Algeria, Somalia, Afghanistan, and most lately Yemen – have been smashed to pieces, usually by western air power. Nothing can withstand the might of the US Air Force and Navy. The skies of the Muslim world belong to US air power and its extension, Israel’s air force.

For example, US forces would have been long ago driven from Afghanistan had there not been 24/7 air cover by American warplanes ready to intervene on minutes notice. A look at the Afghan clinic at Kunduz shredded by a fearsome USAF AC-130H gunship shows the terrifying power of America’s air fleet – the modern equivalent of the British Empire’s Royal Navy.

In the 1890’s, writing of the British conquest of Sudan and the slaughter of the Dervish Army at Omdurman, the poet Hillaire Belloc wrote the memorable lines that summed up western colonial history in the Muslim world and Africa:

“Whatever happens, we have got
The Maxim gun, and they have not.”

The Maxim gun was the fist version of the machine gun.

No Mideast force could withstand western military technology on the battlefield. In 2003, the Iraqi Army met the same fate as the sword-wielding Dervishes at Omdurman. Anyone wanting to understand ISIS and its kin should hasten to see the superb, 1966 film “Khartoum.”

The only way that nations of the Muslim world could confront western forces was by close infantry tactics: fighting hand-to-hand where western air or land power could not prove decisive. Israel learned this hard lesson in its disastrous 2006 invasion of Lebanon.

ORDER IT NOW

Many Mideast militants regard western forces as weak and cowardly, as they rely almost entirely on air power and heavy artillery, fearing to fight “mano a mano.” They say: “ If we could only draw the western imperial forces deep into our countries and then attack them piecemeal.”

ISIS has precisely such a plan in mind. This is why it has staged such frightful provocations in Europe and the US. Osama bin Laden taught: “enmesh the imperial powers in a number of small, bloody wars. Wear them out and bankrupt them. The economy is the Achilles heel of western powers.”

Demagogic western leaders like Marine le Pen, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Hillary Clinton who call for more attacks on the Muslim world are falling right into the trap laid by ISIS. ‘Onward Christian soldiers,” they cry, unaware of the dangerous desert sands they lie before them.

Crusades rarely have positive endings.

  1. The objective of ISIS and other anti-western groups is not to kill Americans, Britons and French, as many foolishly believe, but to drive the western Great Powers out of their hold over the Mideast and Muslim world”.

    If ISIS is an anti-western group then it’s supporters must also be anti-western. These include Turkey, Saudi Arabia and uh ….. The United States. Anti ISIS forces include Syria, Russia, Iran, Iraq and Hezbollah. These later groups, it follows, must be pro-western.

    “Demagogic western leaders like Marine le Pen, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Hillary Clinton who call for more attacks on the Muslim world are falling right into the trap laid by ISIS. ‘Onward Christian soldiers,” they cry, unaware of the dangerous desert sands they lie before them”.

    Methinks the trap is laid by Israel.

    I’m afraid my fellow Canadian is barking on the wrong tree.

    Eric Margolis has just to read his own post dated September 13, 2015, in which he claimed “ISIL/ISIS were armed and trained by the US, Britain and France in Jordan and Lebanon to topple former pro-US Assad dynasty, which is now supported by Iran”.

    If his above assertion is right, then naturally, Paris, London and San Bernardino, were carried out by the governments which fathered the bastard ISIS.

    What an informative title, “what ISIS really wants”. Wow, Eric’s gonna tell you!

    Here it is: ISIS wants to get the Western interventionist into Syria, so that the Western interventionists can be kicked out of the Middle East!?!?!? The brilliant Eric Graf von Turd Margolis logic for you. He has connected the terrorism dots for you – it is all connected, you know, Paris, London, San Bernandino. To kick the West out of Middle East, the smart ISIS is desperate to face the West with its most modern weaponry (including the Maxim Gun), so it is drawing the West in with terrorists acts. Forget about the most logical explanation – that after failing to do government change in Syria, ISIS the CIA child, now serves as a stooge for the West to justify smashing up the Syrian Government and occupying Syria, just like Libya before. You are not going to read that in Graf’s articles.

    But no, Graf writes that the poor, misguided, naive Western interventionists, are being sucked in, dragged kicking and screaming into a military intervention in Syria, poor, poor neo-colonialists. There is a rush-to-war, another misguided war, declares Margolis. A war out of a blue sky, no, it is not just another country in the chain of military interventions to remake Middle East, steal the maximum of oil and stick it to Russia, by the Coalition of the Sponsors of Terrorism: Israel, US, Turkey, Saudi, Qatar, UK, France etc.

    Eric, a freelancer paid by the CIA Literary Department, has the explanation for you. He does serve a segment of the propaganda market which sucks this particular kind of BS. Other full-time members of the same department working in the MSM, have started distributing “news” that Assad is a secret member of ISIS: Assad buys oil from ISIS, not Turkey as the Russians say. But such claim is way too stupid for the slightly better educated Margolis readers, so Margolis sticks to the “misguided Western interventionists”, the beloved term of the Western liberal left (semi-intelligent Democrat voters in the US and Labour voters in the UK).

    And CIA does not pay this worn out scribe well any more, so let us plug Eric’s worthless book. A propagandist has got to make a living, you know.

    Let them have their chance. Maybe they will have a de Gaulle or Kennedy-like epiphany. They couldn’t be any worse than Zionist toadies Hollande and Obama.

Far from it, they are part of a well-developed strategy by the Islamic State, or ISIS, to draw the western powers into a far larger war in the Mideast.”

    I don’t agree.

    1) The Paris attackers would have preferred to attack Moscow or St Petersburg. In case you didn’t notice, it was Russia which was attacking ISIS the week before – not France. But they didn’t have any terrorists who were able to get into Russia. Paris was chosen purely because it was easy for their cell in Brussels to get into.

    2) Ditto San Bernardino. The terrorists attacked there because one of the terrorists worked there. That’s all. It’s hardly the most newsworthy or strategic target, in the USA or even in California.

    It’s the near-random terrorism of momentary opportunity, and shows little sign of a well-developed strategy. There’s no Muslim Michael Collins here.

  7. tbraton says:

    “Demagogic western leaders like Marine le Pen, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Hillary Clinton who call for more attacks on the Muslim world are falling right into the trap laid by ISIS.”

    That’s just one of the curious things I find in this odd piece. Why mention Trump and Cruz and label them “demagogic western leaders” without mentioning any of the other Republican candidates calling for attacks on ISIS? Are they not “demagogic western leaders”? Why mention le Pen without mentioning Hollande, who is actually attacking ISIS already? Why no mention of Cameron, who got Parliament recently to authorize attacks on ISIS in Syria? I guess a British leader can’t possibly be demagogic.

    Secondly, in listing the ISIS attacks, why no mention of the downing of the Russian airliner, which ISIS claimed credit for? Is an attack on Russia not an attack on the West? I notice that Russia has been pretty effective in attacking ISIS in Syria.

    Thirdly, why no mention of the only effective military force on the ground actually fighting ISIS and other terrorists in Syria, the SAA? Why not follow Russia’s good example and support the Assad regime’s fight against ISIS?

  8. I agree, as do some scholars, that the tactic is to lure the West into a war in the Middle East, but the goal is not to kick us out, the goal is the Islamic version of Armageddon, the final battle in which the remnant of the Muslim faithful are supernaturally saved by Jesus and the Mahdi.

    @Rehmat

    You make an excellent point.

    Mr Margolis, normally a very fine thinker, has let the point of this essay self destruct through its own contradictions.

    The idea that Muslims, are “eager” for western nations to come “bomb” their women and children, their homes ,farms, factories, villages,cities,and antiquities is so profoundly stupid that it cannot be accepted.

    To the extent that the alleged “ISIS” attacks in Paris and California have functioned as a “catalyst” for such western action, one must acknowledge that its sponsors must want war and want us to bomb Muslim countries.

    The sponsors of ISIS can thus be seen as belligerent war instigators…who encourage war on Muslim nations by using the terror attacks as a catalyst in promoting it.

    Why are we certain they are Muslim at all ?

    If they are Muslims….they are very stupid ones.

The popular notion of Jihad with the confrontation being the end in itself is a wonderful way to motivate Jihadis, but it is a stupid way to wage a war.

    Nice, you couldn’t find a USA publisher for what must be liberally laced with patent BS

  17. ISIS, SchmISIS.

    The real threat – the only lethal threat – to the West is Islam’s jihad by hijra – mass-migration of high birthrate Mohammedans into the West. All supported by Saudi Arabia and Qatar and other OIC countries by refusing Syrian and other Moslem “refugees” entry into their own lands.

    ISIS is just the latest bunch of Islamic purists to chew up their own Islamic pestholes, yet ISIS is quite pleased to be simultaneously a force that propels Islamic jihad by hijra into the West – in part because the jihad by hijra also allows ISIS and other jihad-by-violence Islamic groups to shift their jihad by violence plants into the West.

    Islam’s method is carrot-and-stick: the carrot consists of Islamic jihad by hijra, dawa and deceit (chiefly by guilt-tripping gullible Westerners into supporting continued and increased jihad by hijra into the West) carried out by the Moslems who come into Western nations and insinuate themselves into the West’s institutions, Enemedia-Pravda and society; the stick is the small number of Mohammedans who carry out jihad by violence in the West.

    The only effective Western strategy is a strong, resolute combination of ending jihad by hijra into the West and of containing Islam within its own bloody borders. All other Western methods are not a strategies, they’re merely guarantors of slow yet certain Islamization of the West.

    To become a good Grammar Nazis, you should first acquire the skill of constructing a complete sentence. However, I understand the thrust of your comment. A far more accurate term for the British army of the 1890s, and up to the present time, would have been “Rothschild-British army”. But since Jewish bankers, and Jews in general, do not normally join armies and participate in wars they finance and derive profit, that term could also lead to confusion.

  22. @Thirdeye

    Did Muslims acquire their stupidity within the past 20 years or so? Prior to 1948, the Land of Palestine was a Garden Of Eden compared to what it has become under Jewish occupation. When barbaric Christian Crusaders left Western Europe in the 9th century to invade the “holy land”, they soon encountered a culture far more advanced than the one they had recently left behind. A culture of art, science and literature that upon their return, would lead to a European Renaissance and eventual emergence from a 1300-year Dark Age that had been imposed upon them by Catholic priest taking orders from the Catholic Church in Rome.

  24. Cui Bono? Looking at who benefits from any situation is often the first step to understanding it

    While drawing the Moslem world – Western world into some sort of Armageddon may be somebody biblically-oriented’s objective, the end-of-times for everybody isn’t a ‘positive outcome’ for most people on Earth. Gathering the moslem nation together to make use of modern bomb patterns might be in the plan book at the USAF university, but to a fighting force or just regular folk, that’s anathema – it eliminates the advantage of invisibility that middle eastern targets still seem to have to some extent. Ditto the notion of a Caliphate surrounded by terrified powers thinking somebody might ‘take it on the road’, same bombing pattern.

    But if you think in terms of destabilizing the middle east, so that Moslems can be turned into their own worst enemies, while it may not generate much on the ‘sacrifice scale’ or any multi-million dollar war memorials, a destablized Arab/Persian world gives strategic planners in the west everything they’ve hoped and dreamed about without the physical cost. And it makes those other famed ‘hopers and dreamers’ in Israel almost messianic in their future prospects for an Israel that King David could admire.

    Cui bono? Big business and Israel. Start connecting dots.

  25. @anon

    I have expressed the same thought many times in the past. If the US military were to ever face enemy forces equipped with effective air power, there would be no contest to speak of. Which, in my opinion, is why the American people do not need to worry too much about the US intentionally starting a war with Russia.

    {There, a simple truth.}

    There is simple nonsense.

    A line from one of my favourite Westerns, to set the mood, The Lawman:
    Maddox: “You think this is a game, don’t you: a contest between gentlemen…ever kill a man Crow?”

    Putting aside the question whether American troops should have been in most of the foreign lands they were sent to kill or be killed – they should not have been – the notion that one should fight “mano a mano” in this day and age is total nonsense.
    The objective in war to defeat the enemy any way you can: lie, cheat, ambush, anti-personnel mines, Claymore mine …whatever.
    Massed artillery, high altitude bombers, cruise missiles: you use any advantage you have to kill as many enemy fighters as you can, while minimizing your losses.

    The are no Marquess of Queensberry rules in war.
    They don’t give out prizes for being a gentleman in war.
    They give out prizes for winning a battle, a war.

    And the BS from the Mideast militants is just that: if they wanted to fight “mano a mano”, they would not plant IEDs and blow up American or other Western troops from a safe distance.

    As to Americans fearing to fight “mano a mano”: read the story of Black Hawk Down in Mogadishu. American Rangers stood their ground and fought to death against overwhelming Somali forces. “Mano a mano”. Again, American military had no business being there. But calling American fighting men, particularly the SFs, cowards is b____s____.

    So, when are US forces, backed up by their vaunted weapons of mass destruction, going to receive a prize for winning a war? As British forces in America could tell you, battles don’t really count. US forces won most of the battles of the Viet Nam War, and virtually every battle of the Iraq War, but they still lost both wars, just as they are in the process of doing in Afghanistan and Syria.

    It is not what ISIS wants but what it is being used to achieve. The main target of ISIS are the Shi’ahs. ISIS has killed more Shi’ahs than non-Muslims. Who wants Shi’ahs out? Take your pick. Saudi Arabia, The Emirates of UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, and Bahrain along with Turkey and Israel and Israeli puppets (The US, UK, and the Europeans). And it is not only ISIS but the Al-Qaeda and the Talibans as well.

    Saudi Arabia has been funding extremists in Pakistan since 1980 to kill Shi’ahs. Hundreds of Shi’ah professionals have been killed in Pakistan. Pakistan is the first place the Saudis established the “madrasahs” or the killing machines. Saudis poured money in Indonesia and the wahabis there burned down a whole shi’ah village. In Iraq hundreds of Shi’ahs are killed on a daily basis. Even the pilgrims are not spared. The two ISIS attacks in Saudi Arabia were against Shi’ah mosques.

    The ultimate target is Iran (a Shi’ah country). Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey feel threatened by Iran. It is a threat to their power grab in the Middle East. They are all using the US and the UK. US in turn trains, arms, and utilizes ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra, Taliban while pretending to be fighting against these “terrorists.”

    Iran had no involvement in Yemen but the Saudis accused Iran of instigating the Houthis in Yemen and attacked that country and have been bombing ever since., for no other reasons but because Houthis are Shi’ahs.

    ISIS or for that matter the Saudis do not represent Islam. They have violated every tenet of Islam. Killing of Muslims or any innocent person is strictly prohibited in Islam. Saudis and their henchmen have killed hundreds of thousands innocent Shi’ahs, Iraqi Christians, and Kurds.
