ISIL-supportedby-US-KSAThe United States and Saudi Arabia are secretly funding al-Qaeda militants in Syria and Iraq in an attempt to bring the US military back into the region, a political analyst says.

“And what they did last fall is try to push the sectarian divide and fund al-Qaeda militants in Syria and this is the consequence of getting a very hardcore group of extremists and secretly funding them to dislodge the government of [Prime Minister Nouri] al-Maliki in Iraq,” Colin Cavell, author and lecturer, said in an interview with Press TV.

He warned against the possibility of terrorist groups’ proliferation and stressed the importance of keeping cool heads and looking at where the funding is coming from and who is supporting them.

“In particular, Saudi Arabia is behind it 100 percent and this again reflects the necessity to eliminate these dictatorial monarchical regimes in the Persian Gulf particularly Saudi Arabia, which is the key actor in trying to stem back the calls for democracy and freedom in the Middle East,” the commentator pointed out.

Cavell ruled out the possibility that US President Barack Obama would be able to persuade supporters of terrorism to change their attitude because the “US Congress is so polarized.”

The analyst’s comments came after Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister for Energy Hussain al-Shahristani said in Baghdad on Tuesday that more than two million Iraqis have volunteered to join the fight against Takfiri militants of the al-Qaeda splinter Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

On June 10, the ISIL militants took control of Mosul, the capital of Nineveh Province, in a lightning advance, which was followed by the fall of Tikrit, located 140 kilometers (87 miles) northwest of the capital Baghdad.

The ISIL militants have vowed to continue their raid towards Baghdad.
