Worthy Christian News » World News » 'Islamic State' Rises in the Middle East


BAGHDAD (Worthy News)– On the first day of Ramadan, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has declared a new Islamic Caliphate in the areas it now occupies, and has renamed itself as simply, "Islamic State", as it ushers in a new era of international jihad.

The "Islamic State" has called on al-Qaeda and other Sunni jihadist groups operating in the region to immediately pledge their allegiance.

Last week, a local unit of the Al Nusra Front – the official rebel group of al Qaeda in Syria – agreed to join forces with the "Islamic State."

The Caliphate would be established in all areas the "Islamic State" controls in Iraq and Syria. It announced that its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, would be the Caliph or head of state. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was released in 2009 from a U.S. detention center in Iraq. The U.S. has a $10 million bounty on his head.

"The time has come for the Ummah [nation] of Mohammed (peace be upon him) to wake up from its sleep, remove the garments of dishonor, and shake off the dust of humiliation and disgrace," Islamic State spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani said in an audio release.

"For the era of lamenting and moaning has gone, and the dawn of honor has emerged anew. The sun of jihad has risen. The glad tidings of good are shining. Triumph looms on the horizon. The signs of victory have appeared," he continued.

"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," Adnani added.

"The jihadist cleric Baghdadi was designated the Caliph of the Muslims," said Adnani.

The Caliphate would extend from Aleppo (in northern Syria) to Diyala in Iraq.

    I once had a conversation with a few Muslims , and they think they have the Bible or should I say Christianity figured out , I was so amazed at how misguided they where in there thoughts of both Christians and Bible , it was clear that they know not of what they speak , true of most believers not just Muslims . God must reveal through the holy Spirit or its just foolishness to men . And Muslims are no exception . I was once asked why I do not read the koran ? Because its just a twisted version of the bible etc , therefore not correct . The origins of islam actually arose from a form of Christianity , but a very twisted one , if you compare the Koran to the Bible , very different indeed and not the same God at all . " Jesus is God in the Flesh " and all cults fail at this very point , no need to read all their teachings , keep it simple and move on , no need to further investigate them , because they have a different Jesus …
