Israeli Intelligence: ISIS Behind Istanbul Nightclub Attack

January 2, 2017

As I have pointed out during my recent speaking tour in the United States, all of the actions of the group known as Islamic State (or ISIL/ISIS) have been interpreted and presented to the Western media through the dodgy Israeli website run by Rita Katz, an Israeli intelligence operative working in the U.S.

The Israeli propaganda website "SITE Intelligence Group" is the source of the report that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack in Istanbul on January 1, 2017. This means that Israeli military intelligence is in fact the real origin of the claim that ISIS is behind the atrocity.

Israeli intelligence agent Rita Katz, the director of SITE Intelligence Group, lives in Bethesda, Maryland, and feeds Israeli propaganda about ISIS to the Western news media. Through Rita Katz, Israeli intelligence provides the propaganda and crafts the Middle East narrative on ISIS and the Middle East for U.S. media and politicians. As I reported earlier:

Rita Katz is an Israeli intelligence operative who feeds the Western media with all kinds of nonsense concerning "Islamic State" and other extremist groups. In this piece on CNN she actually admitted that SITE Intelligence Group had released the beheading video before ISIS, explaining that she had the video "beforehand." Now ask yourself, how could Israeli intelligence have a copy of the video - before the terrorists had even released it?

First, in the afternoon (USA time) of January 1, Rita Katz, the director of SITE Intelligence Group, tweeted that while no one had taken responsibility for the Istanbul attack, ISIS had "mounted a massive campaign against Turkey."

Katz tweeted that ISIS leader Baghdadi had called for attacks in Turkey.

Then, in the early hours of January 2, Katz informed the world that ISIS had claimed responsibility for the terror atrocity in Istanbul - and she provided images of the ISIS communique in Arabic and Turkish to prove it.

Katz informed her media subscribers (e.g. CNN, Bloomberg, FOX News) that ISIS had claimed responsibility for the Istanbul nightclub attack.

Katz went on to say that ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack "after carrying out a massive campaign against Turkey, inciting for attacks in Turkey & its interests." The time stamp appears to be California time, which would have made this about 4:30 a.m. (ET). Katz was working late, in any case.

Katz then went on to intepret the ISIS attack for Twitter readers

Her pinned post at the top of her Tweets about Istanbul shows images of ISIS terrorists with a quote from President Franklin Roosevelt: "... we have learned in the agony of war that great power involves great responsibility." Her message could not be clearer:  The U.S. must wage war on ISIS.

CNN was the first news site to report that ISIS had claimed responsibility for the attack, but their report did not identify the source of the report and CNN said it could not verify the claim. The New York Times and USA Today, like CNN, report the alleged ISIS claim as fact without providing the source. It should be noted that this appears to be the rule rather than the exception since only one U.S. news source mentions SITE Intelligence as being the source. What kind of shoddy journalism is this?

At about 6 a.m. on January 2, Bloomberg reported that the source of the ISIS claim was none other than the Israeli intelligence website, SITE Intelligence Group. As of 1 p.m. on January 2, the Bloomberg report was the only one that identified SITE Intelligence as being the source of the ISIS claim.

The fact that the ISIS claim had come from SITE Intelligence Group was found deep in the Bloomberg report. To understand what this all means, read the article below.

A day and a half after the New Year's shooting attack at a nightclub in Istanbul, the Israeli intelligence/propaganda website "SITE Intelligence Group" headed by Rita Katz in Bethesda, Maryland, announced that ISIS (i.e. Islamic State, ISIL) had claimed responsibility for the attack.

The first media reports that ISIS had claimed responsibility for the attack (i.e. CNN, Mirror, Daily Sabah) did not identify the source of the claim, which was odd, but Bloomberg News did so at about 6 a.m. on January 2 (ET).

This means that ISIS itself does not communicate with CNN, or the BBC, or anyone else in the media, but that the real source of the claim is the Israeli intelligence operative Rita Katz, who informed the media of the ISIS claim about the mass shooting in Istanbul as she has so many times before.

Once again, the blame for the terrorist act is put on ISIS by Israeli intelligence. Most likely the ISIS communiques are actually being crafted by Israeli intelligence (e.g. Unit 8200) and then fed to Rita Katz in Maryland, who then sends the Israeli information/propaganda to her subscribers in the media, like CNN, Bloomberg, FOX News, etc. This is a good example of how the Israeli tail wags the dog.

What appears to be going on with the January 1 attack in Turkey is an Israeli operation to ramp up terror attacks by ISIS before Donald Trump takes office in order to set the stage for increased U.S. military operations in the Middle East. Trump famously said during his campaign that he would "bomb the shit out of ISIS." Israeli intelligence is now setting the stage for this phase of their war agenda, known as the "War on Terror".
