Daesh as an appropriate tool for the West's agenda

At the end of the day, the consequences of attacks by Daesh terrorists always serve different actors' purposes

The two recent attacks in Iran once more confirm that the Daesh terrorist organization serves the interests and agendas of different Western states as well as some incidental regional troubles.

Following developments in Syria and Iraq, one can easily assume that the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the Syrian affiliate of the PKK terrorist organization, was trying to gain legitimacy with its fight against Daesh. If Daesh had not been present in Syria, how could Western powers have argued for a partnership with a terrorist group? In view of the fact that most of the members of the terrorist group have already left the region, the Raqqa operation against Daesh aims in fact to broaden the space for the PYD and PKK. So, Daesh appears to be an essential tool for the long-term political operation of certain Western strategists.

Considering the crisis in Iraq, the operation against Daesh to retake Mosul has turned out to be another sociological and political operation profiting from the Daesh presence.

The recent attacks in Iran that targeted Iranian parliament and a shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini were again chains of attempts to provoke internal chaos in the country.

No matter whether it was Daesh who claimed responsibility for the attacks or not, it was different parties who benefit from the consequences of these attacks.

If Qatar is isolated because of its links with Iran, and if the U.S. President Donald Trump is voicing his determination to corner Iran, who can say that the consequences of the Daesh attack in Iran was a matter of concern for the above-mentioned parties?

And to be frank, if the West really wanted to eliminate the Daesh threat, I believe that it would have really destroyed every single cell of this terrorist organization.

The existence of that terrorist group, which puts the words Islam and terrorism together, is for the benefit of the parties who have enmity toward Islam as well. On this point, it should be noted that we have to talk about enmity toward Islam for those whom we call Islamophobic. But that is the subject of another article.

Additionally, Daesh has been used as an argument for those who wanted to accuse and criminalize leading Turkish figures, claiming that they supported the organization. Following years-long perception operations, then U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had to apologize to his Turkish counterpart Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu.

Since terrorism has become a tool for certain decision makers in many parts of the world in addition to their proxy war puppets, a clear line must be drawn between terrorist groups and states. Just like in the case of the PYD and its partners from the modern world.
