BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:12 P.M.) – Google has helped Al-Qaeda and other Salafist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood gain new members at the dawn of the Syrian conflict, secret documents and e-mails published by Wikileaks show.

The then director of Google Ideas, Jared Cohen coordinated actions to support the groups often dubbed as rebels with then U.S. Foreign Minister Hillary Clinton and Deputy U.S. State Secretary William Burns. Google employed it’s expertise in the IT sector to help the conflict in Syria gain traction.

In July 2012 Google provided a software tool, with which defections in Syria were to be tracked and the thereby gained informations spread in Syria with the help of Al-Jazeera. According to the plotting of U.S. officials and Google, this should encourage more people to take up arms and join the ranks of the rebels. Then Director of Policy Planning for Obama, Jake Sullivan let Hillary Clinton, for which he served as an advisor in the last presidential election, know that, “this is a pretty cool idea.”

The U.S. administration back in 2012 was already aware of the fact, that the opposition in the Syrian conflict mainly consists of Al-Qaeda and other jihadist groups. In a then secret, now publicly available internal report of the U.S. administration on the Syrian conflict is stated, that “the salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.”

Furthermore the rise of the Islamic State was anticipated to result out of an empowered Al-Qaeda along the Syrian-Iraqi border: “If the situation there unravels, there is the possibilty of establishing a declared or undeclared salafist principality in eastern Syria (Hasakah and Deir Ezzor) and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want.”

Supporting Al-Qaeda it seems, was already feasible for the U.S. administration in 2012, just 11 years and 2 wars after the Twin Towers in New York were hit by planes. Sullivan wrote in another mail reporting to Clinton about the Syrian conflict in 2012 that “Al-Qaeda is on our side in Syria.”

Google which tries to gain users trust with it’s slogan -Don’t be evil- since year 2000, has also evolved. In 2015 the company was restructured, with Alphabet now being the parent organisation of the subbranches like Google, Verily and Google Ideas. It has also become part of the U.S. military industrial complex, which provides products and services essential for the deployment and sustenance of military operations, as NSA director Keith Alexander assessed.

Alphabet’s head Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen envisioned this new status for Google: “What Lockheed Martin was for the twentieth century, technology and cyber-security companies will be for the twenty-first.”

Hezbollah was created with the express purpose of fighting the criminal zionist apartheid regime and nothing else. Hezbollah and so-called “Israel” have always been bitter enemies.

So no, Jared Cohen/Ariel Sharon on the one hand and Sayyid Nasrallah on the other hand have nothing in common, and belong to opposite sides of the geopolitical spectrum.

DO NOT PAY TAXES. THEY ALL GO STRAIGHT TO THE MILITARY. IF THE GVNT COMES AFTER YOU, YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO REFUSE AND CONTEST TAXES THAT ARE USED FOR MILITARY PURPOSES. NO TAXES AND THEY HAVE NO MONEY FOR WAR.

Someone was telling me that their slogan was always “just be evil” but I seem to remember when it was “don’t be evil”. Then it changed to “don’t don’t be evil” before it changed to “just be evil” but he didn’t believe me. Perhaps I am imagining it.

It’s high time US DoJ to SERIOUSLY investigate Killary Clinton on Patriot Act and treason grounds. If private companies were involved with terror gangs like Qaeda or the Brotherhood, investigation have to be held too, thus, it’s likely it was clearly on the DoS behalf. If Google becomes to cyber-security what Lockheed-Martin was as a defence contractor, USA is in DEEP trouble! They, with BAe, the perfect symbol of corruption and bribery and the main providers of failed over-expensive products on the military market! The only really efficient things they can build are cargo-aircraft, trainers and recon-planes. Look at their… Read more »

No one will investigate anything in JewSA, cos Joo Jared Cohen was part of the deal, and he gave kosher dollars to the ghetto terrorist supporting state of sh1tsrael. Beside that the Goy in JewSA are too brainwashed by Schlomo Media as to rebel even when their tax money are squandered in useless projects and more aid to the ghetto state, by now most Goy came to think that merdsrael should be helped even at the expense of their Goys own life.Much blood needs to be shed before the Goy in JewSA wake up and even then they may never… Read more »

Total data of #Wikieaks on Google-Al Qaeda (2012), doesn’t have any ‘configuration’. In absence of configuration, this is just a serial manipulation. These sort of manipulation is done by local media everyday. US State Department always maintain fundamentals of Foreign Balance & Political Trivia.
