The president of Sudan has maintained that the Central Intelligence Agency USA, [CIA] and Israel’s Mossad are behind the Islamist militant groups Boko Haram and Isis. Independent Report.
Speaking in an interview with Euronews, Omar al-Bashir claim there was a connection between the American and Israeli intelligence organisations and both extremist groups.
President Omar spoke after Isis released a video purporting to show the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians in Libya, an act that prompted Egypt to respond with air strikes avenging the massacre.
He said: “I said CIA and the Mossad stand behind these organisations; there is no Muslim who would carry out such acts.”
He also cautioned against taking violent measures to fight militants, claiming it could lead to an even more severe extremist response.
“Our policy has been largely successful, after we arrest these young people we bring a group of young scholars to engage in dialogue with them about their thoughts, and we succeed to bring a lot of them back from their radical ideas,” he added.
President Omar remarks come after the leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah group also claimed the CIA and Israel’s Mossad are behind the extremist group, according to the Associated Press.
