'Zio-American empire' behind Daesh havoc: Academic

Press TV has conducted an interview with Anthony James Hall, a professor at the University of Lethbridge, about former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's remarks that Israel  is the main supporter of Takfiri terrorists in the Middle East.

The following is a rough transcription of the interview.

Press TV: How do you feel about Nouri al-Maliki’s statement?

Hall: Well, Nouri al-Maliki [was prime minister] of Iraq from 2006 and 2014. The US turned against him as he ceased to play the role of kind of a puppet leader and began to actually criticize US policy and represent Iraqi people. Here he is observing that Daesh is in fact backed by Israel and of course this is well-known in the Middle East and it’s well-known in Iran but it’s not known at all in the United States, in Europe. This interpretation flies in the face of propaganda we received through Zionist agencies like SITE Intelligence.

And I’m looking at a case where a young black professor at Oberlin College is being persecuted for saying publicly that Israel backs Daesh. So, what the former [prime minister] of Iraq is saying openly and publicly in the United States is treated as a cause for dismissal by prominent university of a young black academic. That to me isn’t new in itself.

Press TV: It is interesting, isn’t it? Because Nouri al-Maliki is actually reflecting what the Iraqi people themselves say in very large numbers, because they even blame the United States for the rise of these Takifiri terrorists as well.

Hall: Especially the United States, and of course, it’s hard to see the difference between Israel and the United States when it comes to this issue. It’s kind of the point of the Zio-American empire. And of course, this propaganda, this is basic to propaganda that started with the false flag terror event on 9/11, which was of course a Zionist job, Israel’s first neo-con job with Benjamin Netanyahu having laid out the scenario way back in 1979.

So, the fact that the former puppet leader set up by the invasion of Iraq, US claimed sovereignty over Iraq and then handed it over to its own representatives, but little by little the Iraqi people are starting to get organized and it looks like Nouri al-Maliki is becoming kind of spokesperson for this indigenous repatriation of Iraq to Iraqis.
