In a November 19 Egyptian TV interview, Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim, who in the past claimed to be a University of California professor, said that ISIS was an acronym for "Israeli Secret Intelligence Service" and had been established by John McCain, as part of a conspiracy to drag the Arab world into a quagmire. According to Ibrahim, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi was in fact a Jew called Simon Elliot, who had been trained by the Mossad.

Following are excerpts from an interview with self-proclaimed Egyptian-American toxicology professor Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim, which aired on Egypt TV on November 19, 2014:

Interviewer: Thank you for bringing the film we just saw to our attention. The film [about ISIS] should serve as a message to all Egyptians, and the best part is that it was made by America itself. It is clear that he Americans decided to recognize that ISIS is Jewish-made, or Zionist-made, and that it got out of American control.

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: This has become common knowledge for American intellectuals, but not for the average American.

Interviewer: You are a University of California professor…

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: Actually, I've already left the university…

Interviewer: But still, you have a vast knowledge of culture, and it was your love for this country that drove you to discuss this. It is a kind of a warning bell.


Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: ISIS has two meaning – an over meaning and the true meaning. On the face of it, ISIS means "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria."

Interviewer: This is how they called it at the beginning.

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: Yet the same acronym can stand for "Israeli Secret Intelligence Service."


This information comes from Edward Snowden, who is now a wanted man…

Interviewer: That's the guy from the NSA…

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: Exactly. He said that this was a means to drag the Arab world into a quagmire, and at the same time, to get rid of all the terrorists in a clever way, in keeping with the ways of British intelligence.


This is a picture of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, right? That's his picture with John McCain, right?

Interviewer: Exactly. Oh my!

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: And that's his picture with various Arab organizations… Isn't that his assistant, Muhammad Noor?

Interviewer: Yes, on the right.

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: Show us the previous picture again. There's something fishy there. That's his meeting with John McCain.

Interviewer: Yes, from about two years ago.

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: The guy with the camera is [Baghdadi's] assistant, Muhammad Noor.

Interviewer: Right.

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: This proves that John McCain was establishing ISIS two years ago, when the Syrian revolution started. That's him over there. ISIS leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi…

Interviewer: Exactly.

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: He gave them the money to start ISIS.

Interviewer: It was done with American money.

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: John McCain used to fund American Zionist organization as well.

Interviewer: Exactly.

Jamal Al-Din Ibrahim: That's the same guy. Oh my. This guy with the beard is, in fact, Simon Elliot the Jew. Exactly. He was trained by the Mossad…

Interviewer: To become the Muslim Caliph.
