Beberapa hari kemarin, Din Syamsuddin membuat penyataan yang menghebohkan bahwa ISIS adalah buatan Amerika Serikat. Sebagian khalayak langsung menganggap ucapan Din Syamsuddin ngaco, namun menurut saya, sebagian ucapan Din Syamsuddin ada benarnya.
Munculnya ISIS tidak mungkin terlepas dari sejarah kemunculan al Qaeda. Dan Al Qaeda didanai oleh Amerika Serikat dan beberapa negara Arab juga diakui oleh Hillary Clinton dan itu digunakan untuk mencegah kemajuan pesat pengaruh Uni Sovyet di Asia Tengah.
Dalam video tersebut Hillary Clinton mengatakan bahwa “Let’s remember here… the people we are fighting today we funded them twenty years ago… and we did it because we were locked in a struggle with the Soviet Union.
They invaded Afghanistan… and we did not want to see them control Central Asia and we went to work… and it was President Reagan in partnership with Congress led by Democrats who said you know what it sounds like a pretty good idea… let’s deal with the ISI and the Pakistan military and let’s go recruit these mujahideen.
And great, let them come from Saudi Arabia and other countries, importing their Wahabi brand of Islam so that we can go beat the Soviet Union.
And guess what … they (Soviets) retreated … they lost billions of dollars and it led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.
So there is a very strong argument which is… it wasn’t a bad investment in terms of Soviet Union but let’s be careful with what we sow… because we will harvest.
So we then left Pakistan … We said okay fine you deal with the Stingers that we left all over your country… you deal with the mines that are along the border and… by the way we don’t want to have anything to do with you… in fact we’re sanctioning you… So we stopped dealing with the Pakistani military and with ISI and we now are making up for a lot of lost time.”
