ISIS Proclaims They Have Established The Caliphate – Change Name To “The Islamic State” (IS)

ISIS jihadists have declared the captured territories from Iraq’s Diyala province to Syria’s Aleppo a new Islamic State – a ‘caliphate.’ They removed ‘Iraq and the Levant’ from their name and urged other radical Sunni groups to pledge their allegiance.

ISIS announced that it should now be called ‘The Islamic State’ and declared its chief, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as “the caliph” of the new state and “leader for Muslims everywhere,” the radical Sunni militant group said in an audio recording distributed online on Sunday.

This is the first time since the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1923 that a Caliph – which means a political successor to Prophet Muhammad – has been declared. The decision was made following the group’s Shura Council meeting on Sunday, according to ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani.  (link)

        You could more accurately state that it began when Jimmy Carter sided with the islamonazis and deposed the Shah, and continued with Obama emboldened the islamoazis by pulling back after islamonazis were routed in Iraq, bowing to Saudi princes, siding with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, supporting even worse islamonazis in Syria, and placating every Islamic leader in the world at the expense of western allies. And Muslims have been trying to re-establish a caliphate since the Ottoman empire was dismantled. But why let facts get in the way of your insipid tripe of still blaming all of the world’s ills on George Bush?

      Exactly, exactly. They’ve been here for decades, and I don’t mean the Big City corner falafel stands. Back in the 80s the Feds were saying that much, if not most, of the funding for various Islamic terrorist groups in the Mideast was coming from their operations in the US. From some of the work I did post-911 I would bet that it’s not dropped any either.
      I’m not talking corner falafel stands but more like the entire gamut from falafel dealer to national companies, all filtering money back to the Bad Guys who’d really like to use it to kill you. This isn’t counting things like the oil we buy that was illegally smuggled out of embargoed countries. Money men from dealers to governments know we’re buying oil from an embargoed source but once oil’s mixed – who can tell? They get their oil, you get the moral comfort of seeing someone like Iraq, post Desert Storm, get embargoed and you get slightly lower pump prices as the Iraqi oil drives you to the corner Big Box store.
      We had a huge flood, generally unnoticed, of ‘Arab’ immigrants late in the Reagan years and again after Desert Storm. In the 90s it didn’t slow that much – while doing Social Security Number research on ‘illegals’ I found an ‘uncomfortable’ number of Persons of Interest With Islamic Names in NYC and some cities in New Jersey, as many as a dozen or so connected together at one time sharing the same stolen SSNs. Looks like NY an NJ were gateways, complete with phony ID services. I know a couple of folks in North and South Carolina are going to be pleasantly surprised when they retire and see that about a hundred different folks have been contributing to their accounts.
      We have my favorite place, the Triborder Area in South America, which has the largest concentration of Mideast Islamic persons outside of the Mideast. It’s been in operation for decades, it houses groups whose names are more that familiar to anyone who hasn’t slept through the last thirty years and has been connected to more illegal drug and weapons incidents than Miami Vice. I won’t go on as I’m sure you’ve all heard about it in the press. NO? Hmmmmmm – wonder why?
      I’m just waiting for an American ISIS to pop up and start marching through some city, then county, then state, as the governments at all levels wring their hands and wonder what we’ve done to so upset these members of The Religion of Peace, and what sacrifices we can make to atone for our sins against them.

Far too much of the US has been drugged by a tsunami of latter day bread and circuses, they won’t even vote for their own and their children’s sake. It’s going to take something major like the Feds allowing another 911 – or worse – to occur before much of that group will move.

      It will only go wrong for us. Do NOT think the Russians are bumbling their way through this as our Boy Xerxes is, they are professional Orientalists and have been for well over a hundred years. Do not confuse their screw-up in Afghanistan with anything but a military inability, over 30 years ago, to project power offensively vice defensively. I’d posted long ago that their Iranian ambassador was a graduate of the Russian ‘State’ department’s professional Oriental training academy, a professional school for professional diplomats that takes years to complete. Unlike our ambassadors, who usually get assignments based on how much the donated to the winning Prez, these guys are pros who (imagine this!) even speak the languages of the country they are going to.
      The Russian ambassador who, even back in Bush days, was working the Iranians had also been complicit for many years in Russian arms deals. Iran has been sucking up the most advanced Russian weapons and weapons technologies they can get their mitts on for many years, and – as I’ve also posted – they hold arms bazaars almost yearly where they show off what goodies they have to sell.
      The fall of the decrepit and outdated USSR and its rebranding as a capitalist kleptocracy has given a new generation of more outgoing and creative despots a chance to use the old Russian enemy, capitalism, as a new friend. Our encouraging the old Russia to make Europe uninvadable by making Russia dependent upon selling Europe gas backfired as we didn’t housebreak the mutt we created. Now Russia and Iran are joined at the wallet and wielding 19th century American robber baron capitalism throughout the Mideast while our feckless dreamer boy prez just sits, watches and scratches his well-covered posterior. Russia was in this nose-deep ever since the US invited them to go into Syria and help al-Assad get rid of the Russian WMDs there. The Russians knew they had been handed a free run and went of from there.
      I say again, look at the natural gas and oil reserves that Iran and Russia will influence and/or control once they’ve both finished consolidating the various disparate groups in the area. It’s much easier for them now as they know Obama has no taste for defending US interests in the area and by the time he’s gone it will largely be too late for a new and more American president to do anything. The Russian gas liquefaction ports in Syria, the new pipelines through Turkey and the old Bloc countries, supplying gas and oil to Europe AND THE US are all built or under way. Gazprom is finishing up contract fine points with major customers in South America – you can bet Gazprom will build port facilities, at a discount, for willing long-term customers also.
      Don’t fret the money for arms, what is going to be done is a done deal and even if all of the cash allotted is spent on arming the whoevers (and I’m betting it won’t be) it ain’t gonna change the outcome.

    Caliph means vicegerent, so they are declaring that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi represents Muhammad in his absence. And Muhammad was a caliph who represented God in the creation, so what IS is declaring is that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi represents God. And this is a sort of “first one who gets there wins” game because just like they did 1400 years ago, they don’t think it is acceptable for anyone else to name a caliph once one has been named, and any Muslim who fails to give allegiance to Abu Bakr can be put to death. There can only be one legitimate Islamic state and one caliph and they are saying that they have both.

    Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri al-Samarrai (birth name of the new “caliph”) uses the pseudonym “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi” to play off of the original rift between Sunnis and Shia. According to most accounts, when Mohammed died in 632 his followers were divided over who to name as his successor.

    The majority backed the friend (and father-in-law) of Mohammed named Abu Bakr while a scant 20% backed Mohammed’s cousin (and son-in-law–this is starting to sound like an episode of “Honey Boo Boo) Ali. The shiaat Ali, (translated as “partisans of Ali” and shortened to “Shia”) are those who are commonly known today as Shiites, while the Sunnis are those who originally argued that Abu Bakr was the rightful successor.

    And THIS is why Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri al-Samarrai has incorporated the name Abu Bakr into his nom de guerre. This is his ploy to unite militant Sunni Muslims behind him in an effort to establish “the caliphate.”. . But where does that leave the Saudis, who are 85% to 90% Sunni? Could al-Baghdadi’s elevation to “caliph” by his followers cause civil unrest in Saudi Arabia, or other Middle Eastern nations with large Sunni populations? Or will the masses just write-off al-Baghdadi as a radical “nutcase”?

    Here’s how islam works:

    Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In it’s fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components. Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious rights.

    When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious rights, some of the other components tend to creep in as well. Here’s how it works.

    As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens.
    This is the case in:

    United States — Muslim 0.6%
    Australia — Muslim 1.5%
    Canada — Muslim 1.9%
    China — Muslim 1.8%
    Italy — Muslim 1.5%
    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

    This is happening in:

    Denmark — Muslim 2%
    Germany — Muslim 3.7%
    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
    Spain — Muslim 4%
    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.

    This is occurring in:

    France — Muslim 8%
    Philippines — Muslim 5%
    Sweden — Muslim 5%
    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.

    Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:

    Guyana — Muslim 10%
    India — Muslim 13.4%
    Israel — Muslim 16%
    Kenya — Muslim 10%
    Russia — Muslim 15%

    After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%
    Chad — Muslim 53.1%
    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

    Albania — Muslim 70%
    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
    Egypt — Muslim 90%
    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
    Iran — Muslim 98%
    Iraq — Muslim 97%
    Jordan — Muslim 92%
    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
    Pakistan — Muslim 97%
    Palestine — Muslim 99%
    Syria — Muslim 90%
    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
    Somalia — Muslim 100%
    Yemen — Muslim 100%

    Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

    It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts nor schools nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death.

    Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

    Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddists, and Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century.

    In my opinion, Muslims should be expelled from all Western countries and isolated. It’s the only way we can avoid the impending violence.
