Worthy Christian News » Islamic State 'Caliph' Calls on All Muslims to 'Obey' him - Worthy Christian News

MOSUL, IRAQ (Worthy News)– Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State, in his first public appearance as the self-appointed Caliph, said all Muslims owe their allegiance to the Caliphate.

The Islamic State on Saturday released a video of what it said was its leader, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, leading Friday prayers in one of Mosul's oldest mosques, an event that not only displayed the group’s military control over Iraq's second largest city but also served as a bold assertion of religious leadership.

In the video, Baghdadi is referred to as the Caliph Ibrahim, a reference to the Islamic caliphate that the group announced a week ago in the area it controls in Syria and Iraq and to which, it claims, all Muslims owe their allegiance. — Source
