'Israel, intl. cartels behind Mideast crises'

Israel and the global banking and energy cartels are behind the deteriorating crises across the Middle East as they are the key beneficiaries of the destruction of regional states, a political analyst tells Press TV.

Å“The chief beneficiaries are going to prove to be Israel, the international bankers who always make monies off of war, and finally the international multi-national energy consortiums who will profit by the destruction of these indigenous countries,” said Mark Dankof in a Sunday interview.

Dankof pointed to the role of Takfiris in the Thursday attack in Lebanon and the ongoing crisis in Syria as Å“a confluence and a congruence of interests” of Israel and some Persian Gulf monarchies.

Å“The fact of the matter is that these Takfiris are clearly being utilized by Israel and by Zionist interests. Itâ„¢s the same coalition behind this in Lebanon that is up to no good in Syria,” the analyst said.

Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Friday that Takfiri groups were behind the car bomb attack, which left 24 people dead in southern Beirut.

Dankof argued that the recent scheme has targeted the Hezbollah Movement in Lebanon, the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.

According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and a total of 7.8 million of others displaced due to the violence.
