The Gang of 20 (G20) Meeting in Hamburg: Are terrorists “financed” by some member countries?

The G20 meeting in Hamburg July 7and 8, 2017, will reportedly have amongst its member governments some that “financed,” support, train, and arm terrorists.

“President Vladimir Putin says he’s shared Russian intelligence data on Islamic State financing with his G20 colleagues: the terrorists appear to be financed from 40 countries, including some G20 member states.” November 16, 2015. RT.

Some of the G20 members... are also members of NATO, and NATO is reportedly “harbouring the Islamic State.” An eye-opening article headlined: “NATO is harbouring the Islamic State” by Nafeez Ahmed, Nov. 19, 2015, can be read at the link below:

More info on G20 and NATO members can also be seen at this link below.

This dirty treacherous, traitorous, and treasonous business that some NATO and some G20 “leaders” are reportedly involved in is financed by taxpayers’ dollars. Therefore, one could argue taxpayers are financing terrorism. As some of the countries involved with NATO and the G20 are reportedly helping the terrorists they are supposed to be fighting.  One would think this double dealing and treacherous alliances with terrorists would be all over the front pages of the “investigative media” here in Canada and elsewhere, but, it is not. Instead we are subjected to daily doses of bullsh-t on this matter by most of the corporate media, assorted think tank cronies, and other “experts” parroting trite and banal phrases....

Banal phrases are the forte of some of the hypocrites in power (or used to be in power) that parrot the words ‘principled’ foreign policy, or ‘enough is enough’ on terrorism while at the same time selling arms to countries that are reportedly financing terrorism.
The Independent, U.K. newspaper of June 1, 2017, had this headline:
“Home Office may not publish terrorist funding report amid claims it focuses on Saudi Arabia

And RT had this headline: “Theresa May ‘sitting’ on UK terrorism funding report to protect Saudi allies” the article stated:
“Prime Minister Theresa May is withholding a Home Office report on foreign funding of British terrorist organizations because exposing the truth could sour relations with the UK’s major trading and security partner, Saudi Arabia.” RT. Published time: 4 Jul, 2017 11:03Edited time: 5 Jul, 2017 07:38

Saudi Arabia and other Middle East “allies” buy arms from the USA, U.K and other G20 members. Which raises the question, if some Middle East allies are reportedly funding terrorism, is it possible that the weapons purchased from some G20 members could end up in the hands of terrorists?

“Under U.S. law it is illegal for any American to provide money or assistance to al-Qaeda, ISIS or other terrorist groups. If you or I gave money, weapons or support to al-Qaeda or ISIS, we would be thrown in jail. Yet the U.S. government has been violating this law for years, quietly supporting allies and partners of al-Qaeda, ISIL, Jabhat Fateh al Sham and other terrorist groups with money, weapons, and intelligence support, in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government.[i]... Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, December 8, 2016,Press Release.

“Known and documented, Saudi Arabia has played a key strategic role in promoting and financing terrorism on behalf of Washington. Moreover, Saudi weapons purchases from the US and Canada are also being used to equip and arm various ‘opposition’ rebel groups in Syria including the ISIL and Al Nusrah.” Prof, Michel Chossudofsky, Global Research, March 02, 2016
Global Research 22 December 2015   

“Islamic State (Isil), with its newly conquered territory, oilfields and bank vaults, no longer needs much foreign money. But its extraordinarily swift rise to this point, a place where it threatens the entire region and the West, was substantially paid for by the allies of the West. Isil’s cash was raised in, or channelled through, Kuwait and Qatar, with the tacit approval and sometimes active support of their governments.” -Andrew Gilligan, Telegraph U.K. September 6, 2014.

“While, undeniably, the Islamic State has shown itself beyond the pale with its beheading of innocents and its massacres of soldiers who have surrendered, let us not forget that our allies abetted these monsters,...” Patrick Buchanan, September 26, 2014. “A Basket of Snakes”

“Last year the chiefs of staff of the US, Britain, France, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey met in Jordan; and a report by UAE's newspaper... also mentions the existence of a secret command center in Jordan which is staffed by military officials from 14 Western and Arab countries including Israel. This command center coordinates the operations of the rebels (jihadis) in southern Syria; while the operations of the jihadis in northern Syria are coordinated by similar command centers and bases in Turkey....” Nauman Sadiq, Sept, 22, 2014.

“Our ally Kuwait has become the epicenter of fundraising for terrorist groups in Syria.” 

“One of the defining features of our modern foreign policy is the alliance with extreme Sunni Islam. Again and again we overlook its often murderous refusal to tolerate even the faintest intuitions of democracy and human rights, and tolerate its links to terror.” Peter Oborne, October 30, 2014.

I could go on and on showing various sources of evidence that our “leaders” (past and present) are reportedly consorting with and supporting terrorist groups. I believe if we really had a functioning justice system the past and present leaders in power would be put on trial. Instead they cavort on the world stage. Either they know their “allies” are funding and supporting terrorism and turning a blind eye. Or they do not know which shows their incompetence and stupidity. Or are just following “orders” from certain countries in the Middle East that appear to control their foreign policies and to whom they appear to pledge allegiance.

“Our allies are up to their necks in complicity with terrorism, but as long as there is money to be made and weapons to sell, our rulers’ lips will remain stubbornly sealed.” Owen Jones, the Guardian, U.K. August 31, 2014.
