Iran’s Basij Commander Claims US Commands ISIS
Brig. Gen. Mohammad Reza Naqdi, Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) Force, on Thursday aired a whopper of a conspiracy theory, claiming that Israel and the US – which Iran just signed a nuclear deal with – are behind Islamic State (ISIS).
Naqdi, who just this Tuesday said the nuclear deal makes Iranians hate America “100 times more” and in March said “wiping Israel off the map is not up for negotiation,” was quoted by the semi-official Fars News Agency in a message to the Iraqi public.
“The ISIL’s theorization and ideology production center is in Haifa and its field operations room in the region is the US embassy in Baghdad,” Naqdi claimed, using an alternate acronym for the Sunni ISIS that Shi’ite Iran has been fighting – as has the US.
But that’s not all; he claimed the US and Israel had created ISIS as a “successor to their former agent in the region Saddam Hussein,” indicating the Iraqi dictator who was toppled by none other than the US.
This isn’t the first time Naqdi has accused the US and Israel of creating ISIS.
