Who runs ISIS? The Israeli-Saudi Alliance —
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon (right) shakes hands with the former Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Turki al-Faisal, at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, February 14, 2016.
The Iranian Fars news agency reported on December 29, 2013 that Prince Turki al-Faisal, who was at that time the director of the Saudi intelligence service, met with several senior Israeli security officials, including Tamir Pardo, the head of the Israeli Mossad. According to the report, the meeting took place in Geneva, Switzerland on November 27, 2013. Fars based its report on a whistleblower with access to Saudi classified information, who was named by the news agency as Mujtahid. According to Fars, he “is well connected with the inner circles of the Saudi secret service” and revealed the details of the meeting on his Twitter account. Mujtahid’s Tweet reportedly said that Prince Bandar and Israeli officials agreed on a number of crucial issues, including exercising stronger control over Syria’s Jihadist forces. At the Institute for National Security Studies conference in Tel Aviv, on Jan. 19, 2016, Moshe Ya’alon stated that he prefers the rule of ISIS in Syria.
