    Why west is supporting ISIL

    Takfiri ISIL militants have made gains in Iraq over the past months. some analysts believe the ISIL, like al-Qaeda, has been created by Western intelligence services particularly US CIA, Israel’s Mossad and Britain’s MI6.
    The Western civilization, spearheaded by the US and Britain, resorts to undermining political Islam as the best strategy for strengthening their hegemony. This strategy is presenting a doctored image of political Islam in the form of a group like ISIL. The idea behind this ruse is to spread the claim that political Islam breeds nothing but violence and extremism. Similarly, the Western governments paint a violent and fundamental image of Iran’s Islamic Revolution in an attempt to distort the history of the Islamic Republic.
    But such puppets as ISIL have an expiry date and they will cease to exist as soon as their presence harms the interests of the Western governments. The West was supportive of ISIL when its militants were fighting the Syrian government. The US even supported the ISIL against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. But after the ISIL launched its offensive in Iraq and particularly after it beheaded American journalist James Foley, it has turned into a cause of serious concern for Washington.
    Similarly, al-Qaeda was backed by the West when it was fighting the former Soviet Union in Afghanistan under the cover of combatants. But when it threw down the gauntlet at the West it was labeled as the symbol of international terrorism.
