There is obviously an effort afoot to paint ISIS with an indelible brush as a “Sunni” movement, in order to deliberately inculcate the fear that they threaten to attract a far larger following, and therefore ignite a more significant conflict in the already volatile Middle East.
But ISIS are not Sunni. Nothing could be further from the truth. ISIS are Salafis, a leading manifestation of a modern phenomenon in Islam which scholars have referred to as “Revivalism.” The Islamic revivalists have two important things in common: they have all been British-sponsored, and are marked by a rejection of Islamic legal tradition.
The communal effort to codify the intricacies of Islamic law is one of the great intellectual achievements of human history. And by the ninth century, there emerged the recognition that the essential details had been examined with sufficient thoroughness, and that it was time to proceed with implementing the justice of Islam, and not just debate about it. It was therefore unanimously decided that 4 leading schools would be recognized as representative of Sunni orthodoxy. The schools, known as a Maddhabs, differed on minor points, but were considered mutually compatible.
Therefore, Islamic law was essentially incorruptible. It had been formulated by its greatest minds, and stringent credentials were enforced on those who would qualify in interpreting it and enforcing it. From that point forward, the Doors of Ijtihad (independent reasoning) were considered closed.
This posed an important challenge to the British, who wished to pursue their “Divide and Conquer” strategy, by creating sects and corruptions of the religion. They therefore sponsored a wave of these so-called “Revivalists” who all shared in their call for a re-opening of the Doors of Ijtihad, beginning with a Mohammed Abdul Wahhab, in the mid-1700s.
Wahhab, a crypto Jew, supported by his sponsor, another crypto-Jew, Ibn Saud, the progenitor of the kingdom by that name, denounced every generation before him, except for the earliest to have succeeded the Prophet Mohammed, known as the Salaf, as having fallen into Kufr (apostacy). In other words, he rejected the entire era that produced the details of Islamic legal tradition and the Maddhabs. Instead, he called for a return to the sources, the Quran and Sunnah, undefiled by “human” opinion. He therefore also called a “Jihad” against the Muslims, first within Arabia, and ultimately against the Ottoman Empire.
In 1932, again with British support, the Saud clan seized control of Arabia, which they proceeded to name after themselves, and of al Haramain, the sacred precincts of Mecca and Medina, thus donning the very false pretense of being defenders of Sunni Islam. In 1933, they signed away oil concessions to the Rockefellers' Standard Oil, remaining the chief source of petroleum to that company, which has now evolved into ExxonMobil, the world's third largest company by revenue, and the second largest publicly traded company by market capitalization.
The extraordinary Saudi wealth was a key factor in their support for the spread of Wahhabism, as well as the related Salafi movement, which have since essentially become one. Salafism began in the last eighteenth century, headed by a notorious imposter and British agent by the name of Jamal ud Din al Afghani. Afghani was not only the Grand Master of the Freemasons of Egypt, but also purportedly a leading figure of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, which played a pivotal role in the rise of the European Occult Revival, leading to the Theosophical Society of H. P. Blavatsky, considered the godmother of the New Age movement, and of the Golden Dawn and then eventually the Ordo TEmpli Orientis (OTO) of Aleister Crowley. Afghani was also an original source of the Masonic teachings of the wayward Nation of Islam in the US.
Like the Wahhabis, the focus of the Salafi mission was to call for a re-opening of the Doors of Ijtihad, and Afghani's leading disciple Mohammed Abduh, was installed by the British as Mufti at the prestigious university of al Azhar, where he proceeded to use that pretence re-write the laws of Islam to suit the purposes of his sponsors. In Afghani’s own words, as cited in Elie Kedourie, Afghani and Abduh: An Essay on Religious Unbelief and Political Activism in Modern Islam:
We do not cut off the head of religion except with the sword of religion. Therefore, if you were to see us now, you would see ascetics and worshipers, kneeling and genuflecting, never disobeying God’s commands and doing all that they are ordered to do.Afghani’s British handler, Wilfred Scawen Blunt, was the first to propose the establishment of a British controlled “Caliphate” (leader of the entire Muslim community) to replace the Ottoman Empire. In 1881, when Blunt visited Abdul Qadir al Jazairi, a Freemason and Algerian hero residing in exile in Damascus, he decided that he was the most promising candidate for Caliphate, an opinion shared by Afghani and Abduh.
The idea of a neo-caliphate was later actively pursued by T. E. Lawrence, aka “Lawrence of Arabia,” who managed the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire on behalf of the British at the end of WWII. The ostensible aim of the Arab Revolt was autonomy for the Arab peoples of the Ottoman Empire, creating a single unified Arab state from Syria to Yemen, under a puppet Caliphate, where Hussein would be proclaimed “King of all the Arabs.”
The plan to create a neo-Caliphate was devised by London’s Middle East team, which included foreign secretary Lord Curzon, Robert Cecil and his cousin Arthur Balfour, and also Mark Sykes and David George Hogarth, the chief of the Arab Bureau. They were joined by Winston Churchill and Arnold Toynbee, who was head of the Round Tablers’ Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA), the sister organization of the Rockefellers’ CFR. Outlining the policy was Lawrence:
If the Sultan of Turkey were to disappear, then the Caliphate by common consent of Islam would fall to the family of the prophet, the present representative of which is Hussein, the Sharif of Mecca. Hussein’s activities seem beneficial to us, because it marches with our immediate aims, the breakup of the Islamic bloc and the disruption of the Ottoman Empire, and because the states he would set up would be as harmless to ourselves as Turkey was. If properly handled the Arab States would remain in a state of political mosaic, a tissue of jealous principalities incapable of cohesion, and yet always ready to combine against an outside force.The ISIS’ handlers (Mossad, CIA, MI5 or all of the above) have learned a lot over the years. They made a mistake in choosing bin Laden who was an engineer by education and profession, and therefore failed to convince the Islamic world of his qualifications to set himself up as a leader or to interpret the nuances of Jihad. Similarly, when Mullah Omar, the leader of the Taliban, finally gained control over the country of Afghanistan, he diffused the enthusiasm of large swaths of the Muslim world’s would-be radicals, who had merely been watching for the outcome, by instead only declaring himself “Amir ul Mumineen,” or “Commander of the Faithful.”
But now the situation seems to be interpreted as being more timely by ISI’s hidden manipulators. It’s been well advertised that not only did ISIS’ leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has now dared to declare himself “Caliph” of the world’s Muslims, earn a master's degree and a PhD in Islamic studies from the Islamic University of Baghdad, but he is also a descendant of the Prophet Mohammed, a supposed prerequisite for that office.
The re-establishment of a Caliph over the world of Islam is the universal aspiration of the Muslims. Every Muslim despairs at the ravages of Western Imperialism, as well as its blind sponsorship of rapacious Zionism. But that makes them especially manipulable by their enemies, who dare to prop up false oppositions, or Pied Pipers like al Baghdadi.
But they’ve made one colossal mistake: they have mistakenly claimed that ISIS is a “Sunni organization.” Since the absence of true Sunni authority, with the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1924, the Saudis have taken advantage of the vacuum to fund their aberrant interpretations, and succeeded to a great extent in fooling the world that Wahhabism and Salafism are merely reform trends within Sunnism. And for the most part, many Muslims are convinced. But the problem with the Muslims today is they are prone to extremism and lapses mistakenly identified as “Shariah” precisely for the reason that they have been estranged from their true Islamic legal tradition, which is found in following the Maddhabs.
Once they recognize that truth, they will no longer be suspectible to imposters like ISIS. But more dangerously still, they will have rediscovered their true heritage, which made them incorruptible and an indomnitable force in the past.
2002 Iraqi Intel Reported Wahhabis Are of Jewish Origin

The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots”, shows the Iraqi government was aware of the nefarious purposes of the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia, often known as Salafis, in serving Western interests to undermine Islam.
The report relies heavily on the Memoirs of Mr. Hempher, which describe in detail how a British spy to the Middle East, in the middle of the eighteenth century, made contact with Adbul Wahhab, to create a subversive version of Islam, the notorious sect of Wahhabism, which became the founding cult of the Saudi regime. The movement was temporarily suppressed by the Ottomam armies in the middle of the nineteenth century. But with the assistance of the British, the Wahhabis and their Saudi sponsors returned to power and founded their own state in 1932. Since then, the Saudis have collaborated closely with the Americans, to whom they owe their tremendous oil wealth, in funding various Islamic fundamentalist organizations and other American covert operations, particularly the "jihad" in Afghanistan. But the Saudis simulatenously use the immense wealth at their dispossal to disseminate this disruptive brand of Islam to various parts of the world, categorized by some of the largest propaganda campaign in history.
Many who defend Wahhabism as a legitimate reform movement of Islam have tried to dismiss the Memoirs as a spurious fabrication. These include Bernard Haykel, Professor in Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University, who, without providing any evidence, presumes the Memoirs to have been created by Ayyub Sabri Pasha.
However, while the Memoirs only emerged in the 1970s, Pasha wrote his version of the story already in 1888. Ayyub Sabri Pasha was a well-known Ottoman writer and Turkish naval admiral, who served the Ottoman army in the Arabian Pensinsula, writing several works about the region and it's history. Including The Beginning and Spreading of Wahhabism, where he recounts Abdul Wahhab's association and plotting with Hempher.
In addition to that revealed in the Hempher Memoirs, the Iraqi intelligence report also makes known some surprising claims, derived from works circulated in Arabic which have not been translated into English. As the report recounts, both Abdul Wahhab, and his sponsor, ibn Saud, who founded the Saudi dynasty, were of Jewish origin.
For example, D. Mustafa Turan wrote, in The Donmeh Jews, that Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab was a descendant of a family of Donmeh Jews from Turkey. The Donmeh were descendants of followers of the infamous false-messiah of Judaism, Shabbetai Zevi, who shocked the Jewish world in 1666 by converting to Islam. Viewing it as a sacred mystery, Zevi's followers imitated his conversion to Islam, though secretly keeping to their Kabbalistic doctrines. In Europe, the Shabbeteans were eventually led a century later by Jacob Frank, claiming to be a reincarnation of Zevi. And, according to Rabbi Antelman in To Eliminate the Opiate, to them belonged the Rothschilds who had a hand in the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati. The Donmeh community of Turkey were concentrated in the city of Salonika, which became a hotbed of Masonic activity, and from which the Young Turk movement evolved, which aided in the collapse of the Muslim empire of the Ottoman Turks. There is evidence that Ataturk himself, the founder of the modern Turkish state, was of Donmeh origin as well.
Turan maintains that Abdul Wahhab's grandfather, Sulayman was actually Shulman, having belonged to the Jewish community of Bursa in Turkey. From there he settled in Damascus, where he feigned Islam, but was apparently expelled for practicing sorcery. He then fled to Egypt and he again faced condemnation, so made his way he to the Hijaz, where he got married and fathered Abdul Wahhab. According to the report, the same is claimed in The Donmeh Jews and the Origin of the Saudi Wahabis, Rifat Salim Kabar.
The notion of the Saudi family being of Jewish heritage has been published by Mohammad Sakher, who, it is claimed, was ordered killed by the regime for his revelations. The report relates a similar account, but from different sources. According The Wahabi Movement/The Truth and Roots, by Abdul Wahhab Ibrahim Al-Shammari, for example, ibn Saud is actually descended from Mordechai bin Ibrahim bin Mushi, a Jewish merchant from Basra. Apparently, when he was approached by members from the Arabian tribe of Aniza, then claimed to be one of them, and traveled with them to Najd and his name became Markhan bin Ibrahim bin Musa.
Additionally, Abdul Wahhab was descended from Wahib Al-Tamimi, so, as reported by al Said Nasir, in The History of the Saud Family, the Saudi ambassador in Cairo, Abdullah bin Ibrahim al Mufaddal, paid Muhammad Al-Tamimi thirty five thousand Jinee in the year 1943, to forge a family tree of the Saudi family and that of Abdul Wahhab, and merge them into one, claiming their origin from the Prophet Mohammed.
While it would be difficult to independantly authenticate these claims, they are interesting in light of the role that the state of Saudi Arabia has and continues to play with regards to supporting and advancing Western power in the Middle East and elsewhere. Especially astounding is the very dubious and virulent form of Islam, that Wahhabism and Salafism represent, which is currently wrecking havoc on Islamic traditions, and dividing the Muslim community in petty squabbles over trivial details, allowing the War on Islam to proceed effectively unchecked.
