An Israeli defense minister has alleged that the Islamic State terror group has long been funded with “Turkish money.”

This statement comes especially surprising since Israel and Turkey in recent weeks have been making reprochement from their shaky relationship.

“As you know, Daesh (Islamic State, previously ISIS/ISIL) enjoyed Turkish money for oil for a very, very long period of time. I hope that it will be ended,” Moshe Yaalon told reporters in Athens on Tuesday after meeting his Greek counterpart, Panos Kammenos, Reuters reports.

“It’s up to Turkey, the Turkish government, the Turkish leadership, to decide whether they want to be part of any kind of cooperation to fight terrorism. This is not the case so far,” he said.

Of course there’s the little detail we needn’t mention about ISIS oil being carried by Bilal’s tankers to Haifa.

German Jews, some wellknown Jewish oligarchs from Ukraine and grey eminences from ISrael masterminded that Daesh terror and founded it long ago. And like zionists around the historian and father of now leader in ISrael Netanjahu used stupid Germans, the British and Vatican to make the dirty work for the sekection of a hard core zionista to found the modern state of ISrael, now Netanjahu the Younger used stupid Turks since decades to make the dirty work for him. The initial friend of that most criminal Davidists always becomes the bad guy then.

Hamas is in Gaza, isis is in Syria. How on earth did Israel create ISIS to fight Hamas? Israel can wipe hamas out if it wanted to with a push of a button. ISIS was clearly created by Turkey and it doesnt need a genious to figure that out, after all, ISIS concentration is mainly on the borders with Turkey and not Israel lol
