Charlie Hebdo massacre being used to demonise Muslims: US experts
Researchers must try to find out whether the Paris attacks were a false flag operation carried out in order to discredit Muslims globally and justify the bombing of Muslim nations, they say

Exposing yet again the larger game-plan behind the 'war on terror' launced by then U.S. President George W. Bush, a senior American journalist and other experts Tuesday said that the uproar over the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris has the appearance of orchestration, and the incident is being used to create hatred against Muslims.

"The events in Paris appeared to have been a "false flag" operation carried out with the involvement of Western intelligence agencies, in order to bring France "back into Washington's orbit" and to 'realign Europe with Israel'", Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Associate editor at the Wall Street Journal and Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury under the Reagan Administration, said while talking to Turkish news agency Anadolu Agency.

"I don't say it was a false flag operation. I say it has the marks of a such", he added.

"Another reason would be to get rid of the rising opposition in Europe against more Middle Eastern wars", he said.

"Considering the number of journalists on war fronts who have been killed by Washington-funded and organized ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), the uproar over the cartoonists' deaths has the appearance of orchestration.

"Whether or not it is a false flag operation, the shootings are clearly being used for a wider purpose or purposes, to create hatred against Muslims and support the 'war on terror', launced by then-U.S. President George W. Bush immediately after September 11", he added.

Debate over possible motives for the attacks and concerns of possible "orchestration" intensified on Tuesday, a day after a story on a BBC-lookalike web page which raised questions about the authenticity of YouTube footage of the killing of a police officer by a gunman during the Charlie Hebdo shootings, went viral on social media, Anadolu Agency says in its report.

Concerns increased after European media reported that both Cherif and Said Kouachi, who carried out the massacre at the Paris headquarters of the satirical magazine and were later killed in a shoot-out with police in a French village on Friday, had been identified as a "potential terror threat" and placed on a watch and no-fly list by British authorities in 2010.

UK daily The Guardian reported the brothers had been flagged in a U.S. database as "terrorist suspects" and barred from flying into the U.S. after they were identified as being part of a terror cell established in 2003 to send volunteers to Iraq.

Roberts' comments added to concerns long-debated on social media over comments made in 2007 by retired 4-star U.S. Army general General Wesley Clark, the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO during the 1999 War on Yugoslavia.

Clark said in a video interview in 2007 with U.S. journalist Amy Goodman of Democracy Now that a classified memo referred to him by a general of the U.S. Joint Staff during the initial bombings of Afghanistan showed: "We're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and - finishing off - Iran."

Another expert, Daniele Ganser, director of the Swiss Institute for Peace and Energy Research (SIPER), told Anadolu Agency: "Researchers must try to find out whether the recent terrorist attacks in Paris were a false flag operation carried out in order to discredit Muslims globally and justify the bombing of Muslim nations, which has been going on for many years now and continues.

He explained: "During the Cold War, 'false flag' terrorist attacks were carried out in Europe by criminals linked to European secret services, the CIA and also NATO.

"A network of secret armies known as 'Gladio' prepared for secret warfare in case of a Soviet invasion."

"During that time. the official enemy of Washington and NATO was communist Russia. In the absence of an invasion, criminals within the Gladio network carried out terrorist attacks in Italy and other countries and planted fake evidence in order to discredit the Communists", he said.

Ganser observed that NATO countries have bombed several Muslim countries in recent years, including Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and Syria.
