A Pact with the Devil

Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

In the summer of 2014 the world watched in shock as ISIL captured Mosul – Iraq’s second city - and took control of territory the size of Britain.

The brutal approach of terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria was not new; however, the main reaction of the West came when ISIL brutally beheaded American and British citizens in front of cameras.

The abhorrent act was denounced by Western politicians and media, but almost all failed to point out that Britain has a long history of involvement with such groups and has been prepared to ally with them when it suits the interests of London.

This documentary traces to roots of ISIL to the darkest pages of British imperial history.
