A long onspiracy theory claims that ISIS is Mosad and stands for the organization name: Israeli Secret Intelligence Service.
However, Mossad is a short for HaMossad leModiʿin uleTafkidim Meyuḥadim,
Meaning : The Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations. And if we want to make acronym from this we get IISO.
The UK Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), would be more close to ISIS acronym than the Israeli one.
The most ridiculous claim I heard is that why would Arabs use acronyms in English to name their organization?
Are you serious? English speakers translated it and made those acronyms. The name of the organization is
الدولة الإسلامية في العراق والشام
ad-Dawlah al-Islāmiyah fī ‘l-ʿIrāq wa-sh-Shām.
The used acronyms for it are داعش Daish.
And as it is translated to English as the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Which is ISIL.. but then someone decided to change the L for Levant with S for Syria.
The next claim is that some imaginary character with the name Simon Eliot is the leader of Daish.
They use those pictures to prove it.
However, this doesn’t prove anything. The pictures that we know for sure is ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. Were taken while he was held at Camp Bucca by US Forces-Iraq from February until December 2004. The shot on the right is from the video released on 5 July 2014. Presumably the black and white photo on falls somewhere between the others.
The photos with John McCain in the OP were taken in May 2013. But the man circled in those pictures looks younger than Abu did 10 years before. There is no evidence of this imaginary Israeli Simon. And a picture of a guy in a bar who has eyebrows a bit like Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi does not prove it as well.
Next hoax is the claim that the leaked documents of Snowden tell about Simon. Between its February 10, 2014 launch and July 14, The Intercept had posted 258 pages of NSA documents leaked by Snowden and numerous articles based on those leaks, but there was not even a word there about Israel’s national intelligence arm, the Mossad, grooming ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as chief stinger for the Hornet’s Nest. When the hoax started The Intercept published just four articles, none of which mentioned Mossad or al-Baghdadi. Among all those websites that claimed it, no one provided any prove or link to support that claim.
Glenn Greenwald—the one who had the Snowden cache answered in twitter :
And Snowden’s ACLU lawyer Ben Wizne twitted:
All those lies were debunked many times many years ago, and still some people just need to believe that Jews are bad, no matter that it is a hoax like always.
