Notoriously secretive head of the organisation formerly known as Isis comes out of hiding to lead Friday prayers as "Caliph Ibrahim"
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State, emerged from the shadows to lead Friday prayers at Mosuls Great Mosque, calling on the worlds Muslims to obey him as the head of the caliphate declared by the Sunni jihadist group.
The notoriously secretive jihadi, who has never before been seen in public, chose the first Friday prayer service of Ramadan to make an audacious display of power in the city that the Sunni Islamists have now controlled for three weeks.
Speaking from the balcony in his new incarnation as self-anointed Caliph Ibrahim, al-Baghdadi announced himself as the leader who presides over you, urging Muslims to join him and "make jihad" for the sake of Allah.
Under his direction, the Islamic world would be returned to dignity, might, rights and leadership, he said.
I am the wali (leader) who presides over you, though I am not the best of you, so if you see that I am right, assist me, he said, dressed in a black turban and robe reminiscent of the last caliphs to rule from Baghdad....

What, we can’t find a cruise missile with his name on it?
Why would the Obama administration kill a Sunni who is winning?
And how many of our brave troops were killed to free that town?
Dang, a good drone opportunity squandered.
Do you think Barry cares?
Barry: "I pledge allegiance to the new Caliph! Hooray" *sniff sniff* (I've waited so long for this day!)
Moochelle: For the first time I am actually proud!
Where’s Martin Luther Obama?
I wish I was only kidding.
Obama will make America the next ISIS conquest. Look at the ring! What non-Muslim has a Muslim ring? That is, in effect, a ring of allegiance to Islam
Is he still alive ? I read it was possible he was critically injured on Saturday. I know today is Saturday HERE, but last night it was Saturday there.
Twitter’s kind of entertaining on this subject. The guy goes from injured, to uninjured, to a fraud at about five minute intervals. The Iraqi government takes the latter position.
Yes obey the idiot, Muslims. I’ll obey him by telling him off just like I obey Obama. I’ll be cooking some pork to celebrate the fact you stupid Muslims can’t eat pork. Oh well more me us!!!!!
have your camel meat, I'll have pork...
Why is this Mosque still standing?
Why is Obama still pondering?
Why did the American people elect Pres. Obama?
You do realize that the Caliph and Mr. Obama belong to the same sect within Islam, do you not?
Isn’t leaving Islam (to become a Christian) a penalty punishable by death?
His so-called “Christian” church in Chicago was helmed by a Muslim. You didn’t hear about that? Plus, he is allowed to do ANYTHING if it involves fooling the infidels. There’s a word for it but it’s not on the tip of my tongue.
Yeah, that’s it.
That would be difficult considering that the Life Magazine watermarked photo you posted is dated November 5, 2009. Despite that photo first being copied onto your photobucket account, also is a copyrighted photo owned and licensed by a site which allows none of their photos to be posted here:

All Arab leaders do this, even the so-called “Moderates” like Abbas of the Palestinian Authority. The Arabs have another word/concept called a “Hudna” which is a ceasefire or halt to aggression as long as they are weak, once strong, they kill...
We've seen this time and time again, nothing new here.
He was released by Obama/ Bush in 2009 from a prison camp. Nice going. I looked quickly and couldn’t tell who negotiated and released him. I don’t trust Bush, the Patriot Act Pusher, any more than Obama, except for the economy. Under the Bush years, things were ok, till the Sept 08 Bank Run.
Okay - will remove it but it was sent to me under that heading and no way to vet it before hand. I had seen a picture like that in the news where this woman held a handful of ammunition just like that and said this is what American soldiers fired at her house. There was no way I could tell it was had a copy write.
“Why is this man still breathing?”
He might not be still breathing. He may have got whacked shortly after his sermon of hate.
Iraqi Isis Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Severely Injured and Flees to Syria
International Business Times ^ | 07/05/2014 | Vasudevan Sridharan
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Sunni militant outfit Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis), is said to have been severely injured in the raging battle forcing him to flee to neighbouring Syria.
According to a report in the Iraqi news network Al Sumaria, the insurgent leader was injured during a raid led by Iraqs Shiite-led security forces in the west of Anbar.
The Iraqi security forces carried out an operation in the city of Qaim on the border with Syria based on accurate intelligence and with the help of the Air Force where the leader of ISIL, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi was seriously injured, said Haidar al-Shara, a representative of the international parliament in Iraq.
However, the report has so far not been independently verified. If confirmed, it will be a severe blow to the militant group which has been marching on several Iraqi cities.
The Iraqi official said: After being hit, al-Baghdadi, with a range of elements of his organisation fled into Syrian territory because of its proximity to Qaim, adding: al-Baghdadi might be killed as a result of the severity of his injuries.
