"Our Friends & Allies Funded ISIS To Destroy Hezbollah": Wesley Clark

In an interview on CNN, Wesley Clark Former US General and Supreme Allied Commander of NATO explains that ISIS was created by U.S. and their allies to destroy Hezbollah

He says “Our friends and allies funded ISIS to destroy Hezbollah”

“ISIS got started through funding from our friends and allies. People will tell you in the region that if you want somebody who will fight to the death against Hezbollah, you don’t put out a recruiting poster saying ‘sign up for us we’re gonna make a better world.’ You go after zealots and you go after these religious fundamentalists. That’s who fights Hezbollah. It’s like a Frankenstein.”

Brandon Martinez reports:

Wesley’s statements echo assertions by Israeli leaders who say that their main threat is Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, not ISIS, al-Qaeda, etc. who pose “no threat,” according to the Israelis. I wonder who told Clark that the main purpose of creating ISIS was to undermine Hezbollah, Israel’s chief rival in the region?

“Tehran-Damascus-Beirut arc is the greatest danger,” says outgoing Israeli envoy to US Michael Oren. “‘Bad guys’ backed by Iran are worse for Israel than ‘bad guys’ who are not supported by the Islamic Republic, Israel’s outgoing ambassador to the US Michael Oren told The Jerusalem Post in a parting interview.”
