ISIS announces ‘Caliphate’ around the World


Islamists battling with Iraqi and Syrian forces declared the ‘Caliphate’ on Sunday with its chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi ‘the Caliph’ from the seized area. In an audio recording posted online, the Islamic State of Iran and the Levant (ISIS), enforced the Caliphate making Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi “the leader for Muslims everywhere”.
“The Shura (council) of the Islamic State met and discussed this issue (of the Caliphate)… The Islamic State decided to establish an Islamic caliphate and to designate a caliph for the state of the Muslims,” said ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani. “The jihadist cleric Baghdadi was designated the caliph of the Muslims,” said Adani. Baghdadi “has accepted this allegiance, and has thus become the leader for Muslims everywhere”.
“The words ‘Iraq’ and ‘Al Sham’ have been removed from the name of the Islamic State in official papers and documents,” Adnani added. The move may not bring weight to its on ground significance, but is a sign of ISIS’s confidence.
