The Supreme Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdulaziz, called the militants of the terrorist group ISIS "Israeli soldiers" and expressed confidence that the coalition of Arab States under the leadership of Riyadh will defeat them.
The Mufti's statement was made amid widespread publicity of the Internet audio recording on which the leader of the "Islamic State" Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi threatened to destroy Israel. But the Sheikh doesn't think so. In an interview to a Saudi Gazette publication, he said: "These threats to Israel – it's just a lie. Actually, they GIVE the role of Israeli soldiers".
It should be noted that this version is not invented by Shaykh – many Arab fans of conspiracy theories believe that the ISIS army is composed of soldiers of the IDF.
In addition, the Saudi Mufti said that the actions of ISIS have nothing to do with the teachings of the Muslim religion and even harm Muslims worldwide and Islam.
[O.R: This statement, confirmed by Sputnik and other major outlets, is extremely bizarre, since Saudi are essentially the southern force in the Oden Yinon Plan. It is possible that the finger of blame is pointed at Israel, with Ridyah surrendering their position in Syria, but with imminent defeat in Yemen looming, should they really be rubbing up other nations the wrong way? It is true that ISIS NEVER attack Israel, with the IDF acting as an Air Force for them, but perhaps Putin's stratagem masterclass extends to the separation of Wahhabism and Zionism, a parallel process accompanying the isolation of Ankara.]
