simply because he doesn't think even US and Israel had that much money to throw at them
Western governments are sending millions of pounds of aid to areas held by the radical Islamic group Isis in northern Syria, The Independent can reveal. The aid, which is paid for by the UK, European and US governments, consists of food, medicine and hygiene kits. It is brought into the country through the war-torn north from the two last remaining border posts open with Turkey in Reyhanli and Kilis.
Isis is also luring doctors and nurses with large salaries in return for their loyalty, a Syrian doctor working for a Norwegian medical NGO in Raqqa told The Independent. They are buying people one by one – they are offering doctors up to 100,000 Syrian pounds a month (£390), which is a fortune there now.

Re: ISIS blows up the Nabi Yunus Masjid in Mosul Postby Mustafee101 » Fri Jul 25, 2014 12:09 am Israel, USA, and KSA are funding ISIS in an attempt to weaken Iran (majority Shias). The Sunni-Shiite divide has been created by politicians and the media to serve the U.S. and Israel interest. If the ISIS really care about Islam or Muslims, they would have helped Palestine. They didn't even condemn the IDF's recent attacks on Gaza.

ISIS are a death squad infiltrated and covertly germinated by western covert forces, and ISIS’s actions directly serve western strategic interests which are basically to violently divide communities and countries.
Response to what many think was a western propaganda article attempting to explain that it wasn't the west funding ISIS
Although some parts of this article that explain what informations about ISIS have been gained may be true, I still think that it's main purpose is to convince the (western) readers that the western governments (and their Gulf puppets) had (and have) no share in creating and funding ISIS.
I find it very improbable that an obscure and utterly poor group of extremists, that started operating in Syria, could, suddenly and unexpectedly, in a couple of years, achieve such political and military strength, and all that virtually undetected by western secret services. We all know that the west aids and supports the opponents of the Syrian regime, so the idea that ISIS somehow miraculously underwent such huge transformation right under the noses of American and other western governments and amassed such wealth without being discovered by the west is simply ridiculous.
We, the people of the Middle East, are, as we always were, only pawns in the huge and (half-) secret chess game of the western governments. They create countries and draw borders, they install and destroy our dictators, they decide who is good and who is evil among our governments, and they assemble extremist movements, use, support and fund them until they serve western purposes and dismantle them (or leave them to operate and destabilize the region) after they are no longer of use...
So to claim that they knew almost nothing about ISIS, as it separated from al Qa'eda and grew to it's today's monstrous proportions, and to want us to believe that, is in my opinion a bit too much...
Senator Rand Paul said the US government is arming the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorists. Speaking to the CNN's State of the Union program, Republican Senator Paul said, "they (ISIS) would not be in power in Iraq, if we were not providing safe haven in Syria by arming their allies." He claimed that the US government armed the terrorists in Syria, adding "we have been fighting alongside al-Qaeda, fighting alongside ISIS." ISIS is now emboldened in two countries.

Al Qaeda had Bin Laden
Who does ISIS have? I'm thinking an entire young country in the region.
