Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a real person who has a fake nickname and title. This is also the case with everyone around him and there isnt a member of Al-Baghdadis inner circle with a real name. Every person in Al-Baghdadis inner circle is 100% Iraqi and he doesnt accept any other nationality because he does not trust anyone. The number of members in the Al-Baghdadis military council is about 8 to 13 people. The Military Council is headed by three people from Saddam's army who also belonged to the former Baath Party. The main leader is Brigadier General Haji Bakr who was previously an officer in Saddam's Baathist army. Who exactly is Haji Bakr?! What is his relationship to Al-Baghdadi and when did it start?

As mentioned previously, the Military Council is headed by three people from Saddam's army who also belonged to the former Baath Party. The main leader is Brigadier General Haji Bakr who was previously an officer in Saddam's Baathist army. General Haji Bakr first met Abu Omar Al-Baghdadi when he offered his services to him due to having experience in Saddam's Baathist army. He demonstrated his dedication to him and he is now considered to be one of the closest to him. However, Haji Bakr didnt have any previous jihadi experience before that. He was accepted to the Military Council on the one condition of providing the State [AQI / ISI] with important information about the Iraqi army. When he did that and proved his loyalty, he was then appointed as the military adviser to Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and Abu Hafs al-Muhajir and continuously provided them with information about previous military leaders, plans and successfully linking them with previous members of the Baath Party. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi at this time was a member of AQI/ISI but outside the organization's leadership. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadis main residence was in western Iraq ,specifically in Anbar province and Fallujah. Abu Omar Al-Baghdadi and Abu Hafs were targeted with a bomb shell and they both died but Colonel Haji Bakr wasnt among those who were hurt. A friend of Colonel Haji Bakr, who is named Mazen, frequently visited Haji Bakr before and after the death of Abu Omar and Abu Hafs.
Abu Hamza Muhajir has two other nicknames before joining AQI/ISI and they are Abu Ayoub and Abu Hafs.

Haji Bakr offered Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi leadership in a private meeting a couple of hours before Abu Omar Al-Baghdadi died. Abu Bakr went through with the decision even though he was worried that he wouldnt be able to handle all this responsibility. When Haji Bakr became a leader, a new era started that was important to Iraq as well where the amount of fear between citizens increased. A lot of people considered Haji Bakr to be arrogant next to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, who many considered to be a quiet personality. In addition, Haji Bakr completely changed the way he looked where he shaved his beard off and even changed the way he speaks in the first few weeks. The main issue here is that no one in the State dared to question anything taking place because questioning was considered not trusting the other person. This issue was serious to a point where it was allowed to kill another member who considered being suspicious of another.
Haji Bakr then started holding private meetings with Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi to reshape the State. The first agreement was protecting the State from the inside and out. This involved creating a security outlet that would be able to respond to any type of danger. An important step that took place was that Haji Bakr prevented Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi from meeting with leaders from other groups so they didnt impact or advise him in any way. The orders came from the Shura council that Abu Bakr created to ensure that all decisions made were fair. After this, the two became very close and were always with each other where many considered him to be Al Baghdadis private minister.
Among their plans were various assassinations that in fact took place. This first started with twenty people and within a month, the number increased to one hundred people. It is essential to understand that no one in the State AQI/ISI would dare to take any orders from anyone else but Haji Bakr or Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi during that time. Every member in the Shura was carefully chosen by Haji Bakr and most of them were in the previous Baath party. One of the members main responsibilities was assassinating everyone who disobeys or betrays the State. The assassinations also included leaders from other groups and judges.
In order to organize the orders and assassinations, Haji Bakr appointed someone that he really trusted who was a previous officer named Abu Safwan Rifaii. Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi started feeling more comfortable and was very grateful to Haji Bakr. There were also several important decisions that took place:-
1) Collecting funds from the Shia, Christians, and other minorities. 2) Gaining control over the oil fields and energy sources and any governmental monetary funds. 3) Any company that got a contract from the Maliki government should be controlled whether it is a cleaning, maintenance, or even energy drills. If the owner of the company doesnt agree, then he/she should be threatened to be killed or to destroy the company. This is also the case if the owner refuses to pay the required monthly taxes. 4) Placing checkpoints on the road to gain money from commercial trucks and vans. The amounts reached to $200 sometimes.
At this point, the State started gaining a lot of money and this led to an increase in the salaries and funds available to carry out military operations. This also led to more people wanting to join the State especially when they found out how much some members were getting paid. There are some important questions that have to be taken into consideration. How did the idea of creating the Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham [ISIS] occur? Who convinced Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi to enter Syria three weeks before the creation of ISIS? Why was the announcement that ISIS had been created made quickly? Why did Abu Bakr al Baghdadi choose the Turkish borders to live before the announcement? How did he threaten Abu Mohammed Al-Jawlani before this all started?
There was a picture that was taken for Al Baghdadi at the Turkish borders before the announcement of ISIS was made.

When the Syrian revolution started, the State's attention was focused from Iraq to Syria. Haji Bakr was worried that that many members were going to go to Syria without permission. This caused numerous problems in the council especially considering that many members who werent satisfied with certain aspects of the State wanted to go to Syria to escape everything. Haji Bakr recommended Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi to inform all members that they shouldnt even think about going to Syria and that any person who does is considered to be an outsider. The main reason was because the situation in Syria was uncertain and he wanted to be patient. However, the situation was getting worse with members of the state and it was clear some were going to leave to go to Syria. This is when Haji Bakr came up with the idea to send a group of non-Iraqi members to go to Syria with a Syrian leader. It was forbidden for any Iraqi leader to go and the point of this was to protect Iraqi members in the State, which were the majority. The leader in Syria was responsible for finding new members and this happened and the group became known as Al Nusrah Front. Al Nusrah started growing with the leadership of Abu Mohammed Al Jawlani and he became even more popular. Fighters from the Gulf, Tunisia, Libya, Morocco, Algeria, and Europe began joining al Nusrah Front. This scared Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi because members of al Nusrah Front didnt have any loyalty towards him. This is when Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi sent a message to Al Jawlani and informed him that he should publicly announce al Nusrah Front belonged to the State. However, Al Jawlani didnt agree and sent a message a couple of days later saying that this would not be beneficial to the Syrian revolution. Haji Bakr decided to send spies to watch every move of Al Jawlani. Haji Bakr also sent ten Iraqi members there but what is very surprising is that most of these members later stated their approval of what Al Jawlani was doing. Al-Baghdadi then decided to look for accommodation in a safe place in Syria near the Turkish borders. No one knew about this except him, Haji Bakr, and three other members in the State.
What did al-Baghdadi do after entering Syria and where was his place of residence? Where exactly was he before the declaration of the ISIS?! What did they do before the declaration? Did al-Baghdadi meet with Al Jawlani before the declaration?!

When did Al Baghdadi enter Syria? Where did he live? Who did he meet? What is the relationship with Saudi officer Bandar Shaalan with the creation of the ISIS?
Al Baghdadi, Haji Bakr, and their companions entered Syria three weeks al Nusrah Front was dissolved, staying at their residence on the Turkish borders. The arrangement made for Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi included a portable steel room in a place that isnt fair from the Syrian Refugee camp because he considered that to be safer for them. The plan was to stay in the accommodation while Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi met with members and leaders from al Nusrah Front and make them feel like he was loyal to them. Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi made sure not to show any hatred or difference in opinion with Al Jawlani in an effort to satisfy everyone. Al Baghdadi made the following meeting plans:-
1) Meet with senior leaders from al Nusrah Front face to face and introducing himself to them. 2) Not meeting any younger or unknown leaders but meeting instead with ten senior leaders.
Abu Bakr al Baghdadis plan was also to try to convince them that his main goal there was unity and defeating enemies. Al Jawlani was mainly quiet throughout this phase and he didnt attend any meetings and didnt show any indifference or dislike towards Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi. However, there still was worry among senior leaders about Abu Bakr Al Baghdadis real intentions. Al Jawlani then found out that Al Baghdadi was angry with him and there was possibility that he was going to be assassinated. This is when al Jawlani decided not to attend any of the meetings and there was continuous protection around him. Al Baghdadi sent a message to Al Jawlani informing him that al Nusrah Front would soon be dissolved and it would be better if Al Jawlani made the public announcement himself. However, Al Jawlani didnt respond as expected and sent back a letter saying that the decision to unite the State and al Nusrah was a huge mistake that would destroy the popularity al Nusrah built . Also, he explained that there is no way that the Syrian public would agree and that the best thing to do is for the State to back Iraq and letting al Nusrah Front handle things in Syria. This is when Haji Bakr advised him to cancel the announcement and wait until a fighting group was created. Haji Bakr met with several members from al Nusrah Front who werent satisfied with Al Jawlani and asked to prepare fighters. Within three days, about 100,000 fighters were prepared and they were told of everything related to the announcement and when it was going to be made. During the time the announcement was being written al Jawlani was informed that he had to accept what was going to happen sooner and later. Also during this time Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi met with senior leaders from al Nusrah Front as was planned in the beginning. Three days after the announcement was made, there were three main divisions and that included members joining Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, members staying neutral, and the remaining members staying loyal to Al Jawlani. Al Baghdadi then sent a message to Al Jawlani and everyone that remained loyal to him that they could either change their loyalty or they were going to be killed. This is the same time where Bandar Al Shaalans name started appearing. Bandar has had a great relationship with Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi even before all of this took place. He was also the one to introduce Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi to Al Qahtani, who was in Al Jawlanis prisons previously.
What happened to Al Jawlani after that? What happened before Al Jawlani announced Al Zawahiris deal? What was Haji Bakrs position on the Zawahiri deal? How was Al Zawahiri rejected?

Haji Bakr and Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi found out that al Jawlani had no intention to listen to them and let go of Al Nusrah Front and that it was possible that he was going to announce this in the media as well. This is when Haji Bakr told Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi that they had to create a security team as fast as possible with two main missions which were:-
1) Gaining control on all the warehouses of al Nusrah Front that consist of weapons and security equipment. Anyone who didnt agree to give up control of the warehouses should be killed instantly. 2) Creating an assassination team to kill all the leaders of al Nusrah Front, starting with Al Jawlani and then the rest. The plan was to find out all their movements and then murder them using cars that have explosions in them. This also includes arresting or murdering anyone close to them or aware of important information about the State, such as Al-Muhajir.
The assassination team first placed explosives on Al-Muhajirs car but the mission wasnt successful. After that, Al-Muhajir disappeared in fear of his life. Haji Bakr then called for an urgent meeting and was extremely angry at the assassination team because of their failure and that this is going to hinder other missions. At the same time, Al Jawlani refused to let go of al Nusrah Front and Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi was worried that he was going to go to Al Zawahiri to solve the problem. This is exactly what took place and Abu Bakr al Baghdadi gained support from three other people, one Saudi leader and two Syrian leaders( names cant be mentioned). Al Zawahiri asked for time to solve the problem and he sent a message to Al Qaedas leader in Yemen, Nasser Al Weheshi, to try to find a solution. Al Weheshi sent a message to Al Baghadi and Al Jawlani but Al Baghdadi didnt bother replying back. However, Al Jawlani did reply back and justified his decision with the same reasons, and that this is going to hurt the Syrian revolution. Al Weheshi then informed Al Baghdadi that he cant reach a solution and that he needs to find one himself. During that time, Al Baghdadi continued with his plan but he changed the assassination strategy of him team from explosive cars to hiring professional snipers who started looking for al Nusrah Front leaders immediately. Also, Haji Bakr asked Al Qahtani to ask religious leaders from Saudi Arabia about their opinion on the whole thing and that what they say is going to be implemented?
How were religious leaders appointed in the ISIS? Who are they and whats their job? Who were the main leaders and were they in the Gulf or in Syria?

After Al Baghdadi failed in eliminating al Nusrah Front and the latter were becoming stronger, he and everyone around him became frustrated and felt like they need to go back to Iraq. However, two people told him to stay and they were Haji Bakr who completely refused everything Al Zawahiri said and Al Qahtani. Al Qahtani also informed him that there is no way that he can return back to al Nusrah Front especially because he not wanted there anymore. Al Qahtani was also responsible during that period for bringing religious leaders from Saudi Arabia, especially the ones who truly cared about helping Syria and are against Al Zawahiri. The thing is Al Baghdadi himself didnt truly want to leave Syria because he felt like he was freer in it and had more followers there. Al Qahtani was focusing on two main approaches which were:-
1) Finding fighters who had a previous relationship or worked with the Gulf. 2) Creating a team responsible for the internet and media.
Al Qahtani called Saudi religious leaders and fighters so they can admit their approval of Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi but none of them had to be responsible to him. Also, he contacted Al Shaalan so he can be the leader of the group in Saudi Arabia and trying to convince other religious leaders to support Al Baghdadi. Even though he was able to appoint some religious leaders, he wasnt able to appoint as many as ISIS expected. Al Baghdadi was assertive on keeping Al Qahtani around because he was from Saudi Arabia, even though he didnt trust him that much. However, he considered him to be an advantage in attracting supporters from the Gulf region. The team responsible for the media and the internet were also going their job by promoting ISIS online and trying to shed a positive light on them as much as possible.
How was the media and internet team organized and who was their leader? How did they put their plan? Which religious leader told them they can lie to gain attention and followers?

Al Baghdadi and Haji Bakr were completely convinced of the need for a media team with the responsibility of promoting and defending the ISIS. They also wanted the members to work 24/7 and agreed that the place where their reputation can be ruined the most is Saudi Arabia and this is where they should first start promoting the ISIS. Al Qahtani recommended creating two media teams:-
1) The first one consisted of Saudi members from inside Syria. 2) The second one consisted of Saudis from inside of Saudi Arabia and the two teams were known as Ansar Al Mujahideen (the media branch).
Every team was appointed a leader and they were in fact working on a daily basis and they had accounts on every platform. Some of the main accounts were @almohajer8225, @a_alfaiz, @bmr8000, @K_L7, @abo_aleeth,@a_s_m2010. The two teams were closely working together all the time and were constantly posting news. Al Qahtani then informed them that it was religiously okay to lie if this is going to help the ISIS because it is permissible to trick the enemy in a time of war. During that time, Haji Bakr was stressed out and felt that there were various divisions taking place and that the media teams of other opposing groups were ruining their reputation. They were even considering arresting Al Qahtani due to him failure in improving their reputation in the media. When Mohammed Faris [a commander with Ahrar al Sham] was [mistakenly] murdered, this was considered to be a catastrophe and Haji Bakr was very angry and he ordered the assassinators to release a video denying that they are involved. However, they ended up rejecting their orders and told him that they were ordered by senior leaders in ISIS and that it wasnt their fault because they were just following order. Haji Bakr and Al Baghdadi met with Al Qahtani again and told him that he needs to do anything to stop this attack on them and the campaign by religion leaders on them. This is when Al Qahtani informed them that it is obvious that the team he created wasnt as effective as he thought but that he couldnt find any influential religious leaders to endorse him. This was the time when Al Qahtani started thinking about other options.
How did Al Qahtani start his projects to protect ISIS? How did he place the rumor and defamation project? How did he create a team that records everything religious leaders say privately and then blackmail them? Who did he hire for the spying and recording process and what did he do with the recordings? What did Al Baghdadi think about the progress?

Haji Bakr informed al Baghdadi that two new projects were going to be launched and they were:-
1) The recording projects on anyone who opposes them especially from other groups and that they were going to be blackmailed later on. 2) The spying project on senior leaders and some members of ISIS that they were suspicious about.
Both these projects were very important and sensitive because the right people had to be appointment and in total secrecy. Also, they were responsible for sending these recording to Al Baghdadi and this is why choosing them was a very difficult process. Al Qahtani informed Al Baghdadi that he was planning on pretending like someone else to call the Saudi Sheikh Sulemain Al Elwan so he can get him to speak about support Al Baghdadi, even if it was only a compliment. The phone call did actually take place and lasted for sixteen minutes but it was mainly complimentary. However, they did get what they wanted and considered it to be important evidence and that they can replace Al Qahtanis voice with Al Baghdadis voice very easily. The spying and recording team mainly consisted of four Saudis who sent all the recordings to Al Baghdadi. This was also the time where the Muslim Brotherhood was taking control in Egypt and Al Baghdadi informed everyone that they should start quiet and not comment on the situation at all. Haji Bakr recommended releasing Al Elwans recordings so they can strengthen their position or to reach a deal with al Elwan so he can support them or stay quiet. Al Baghdadi was also hoping to gain recordings on senior leaders of groups in Iraq, Yemen, and other countries. However, this was quite difficult to do because they didnt have their own religious support and used easy to track communication tools.
Did al Qahtani come up with another plan? Who are the media team leaders that he trusted? Who are the religious leaders?

What is the real name of al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS? Is it Baghdadi? Is it Doctor? Is his surname correct?! Is it Qureshi [descended from the Prophet and therefore eligible to be a Caliph]?! The question is continuously repeated.
His first name is Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim and he was also known as Abu Awad. As a nickname, he wascalled Abu bakr. The surname Baghdadi is not real. He first lived in Al Samarra but then moved to Fallujah to work as an imam of the mosque Diyala. He doesnt have a Ph.D as claimed and he never worked as a medical doctor anywhere. However, the last statement has not been 100% confirmed until now.

Al Qahtani had another plan in mind and it was mainly revolved around defeating any opposing parties of Al Baghdadi in any way possible. Al Qahtani formed a secret group for this mission especially that those who opposed Al Baghdadi were significantly increasing in number. He created two teams again and the first team consisted of two people who were Hamoud Al Matiri and Aliwi Al Shamri. The two were chosen based on their knowledge about the internet and their previous time in jail due to supporting Al Baghdadi. They were informed that they had to operate with fake names and look for religious evidence that supports Al Baghdadi. Also, they were informed that they had the responsibility of responding to anyone who says anything negative about ISIS and to be continuously active online. Another important member of the team was Abdallah AlFaiz, @a_alfaiz, who operated his personal account and was responsible for other accounts at the same time as well. The teams mainly operated by responding to opposing individuals and parties by verses from the Quran or claiming that their opponents were working with the government. The main point here was to ruin the reputation of the opposing parties in any way, even if this involves using Quran verses in ways that arent suitable or even true. Al Qahtani also asked Al Sebaii from Saudi Arabia (@ntfooosh) to use his account to attack anyone opposing al Baghdadi especially since he had a large amount of followers. However, he replied back by informing him that he cant do it because his father disagreed and this is when Al Qahtani approached Abu Al Walid @AbuAlwalidMhajr to to convince him but his father didnt agree either. They even tried convincing them by telling him that it is allowed to disobey your father to support Al Baghdadi but he still refused. During that time, it was apparent that four main opposing sheikhs had a huge influence and they were Abd el Aziz Tarifi, Sulieman Al Elwan, Youusef El Maghrabi, and Amr Hadoushi. This is when ISIS met and asserted the importance of getting rid of the four in any way possible involving completely ruining their reputation.
What did Al Baghdadi do after divisions started taking place inside Iraq? What did Haji Bakr tell Qahtani to insult him? What are the steps that Haji Bakr took to try to prevent these divisions and did he take the passports of certain members?

The ISIS was obviously facing numerous problems where the soldiers themselves were starting to speak about divisions. It was also obvious that Al Qahtanis plans were failing and nothing was working anymore. During that time, Haji Bakr decided to spy on al Shishani and ordered Al Muhajir @AbuAlwalidMhajr to do so. The latter informed Al Shishani that he was a religious personality and that he needed to speak to him. After a couple of conversations, Al Shishani became comfortable and informed Al Muhajir that he is seriously considering leaving ISIS. Haji Bakr and Al Baghdadi called a meeting with Al Qahtani and Haji Bakr screamed at him and told him: there are serious divisions taking place and youre sleeping! This is when Al Qahtani called several people close to Al Shishani to try to convince him to stay. However, Al Muhajir contacted them several days later and told them that al Shishani was not convinced and that there was a strong possibility that he was going to leave soon. This made them even angrier and he informed Al Qahtani that he is going to do to him what Al Jawlani did to him in prison and that ISIS doesnt respect anyone who doesnt work enough for its survival. Al Qahtani sent another Saudi personality Abo Ali Al Najdi @aboalialsultanto informed Al Shishani that he would be killed even if he considered leaving. Al Shishani became really scared and began informing everyone around him that he wasnt planning on leaving and Haji Bakr ordered him to release an official statement saying so. Al Shishani was very hesitant and even went through with his withdrawal decision from ISIS along with 800 other fighters. When Haji Bakr saw the extent of the withdrawal, he knew it was impossible to kill everyone and this was considered to be the worst catastrophe ever and the ISIS tried to keep it away from the media. Al Baghdadi even became more scared and they both agreed that they should hire Iraqi spies in Syria and Iraq to inform them if everyone is planning on leaving them. They also agreed on threatening the soldiers and taking any communication tools from them.
Are there any spies inside opposing groups and who were they? What did Al Baghdadi and Haji Bakr do when they found out about the possibility of creating an Islamic caliphate? What are the plans to destroy the Islamic caliphate project? Who killed Abd El Kader Salah and what does that have to do with Abu Al Atheer?

Haji Bakr started placing spies in the groups that they were worried about the most and even attempted to brag to soldiers who worked for them. They were more concerned with the Liberate Syria group because they were the strongest rebel group. Even though they placed numerous spies, they were unable to reach to the leaders and the news was reaching them very late. Haji Bakr was hoping to get the news fast so he can confuse the groups and ruin their reputation quickly. Haji Bakr still tried to look for a spy from inside and he was successful in hiring a colonel who worked for them as a spy. He provided them with information about their strengths and the weakness. The most dangerous information that came to them was the possibility of Liberate Syria joining with other groups such as Liwa Al Tawheed and Ahrar Al Sham. Surprisingly, they decided to take the media approach again and ruin the reputation of some of these groups so they dont consider joining together. Al Firas Al Absi was among the first to announce his group in Syria and its name was Al Shura council for an Islamic caliphate. The number of members in it was 180 people. However, he was later on killed on the Turkish borders and the Al Qaeda flagged was closed which resulted in the border closing. During that time, Al Elwan refused to support anything until he meets with a senior leader of any of the groups. This is when Al Atheers brother met with him and he told him that he refuses calling it a caliphate and that it should be called a group instead. However, a huge fight took place between them when he rejected and this led to Al Atheer calling him a traitor.
At the same time, an announcement was made about the formation of a group called the Islamic Front. Later on, it was found that the group consisted of several groups such as Liberate Syria, Islamic army, Ahrar al Sham, and Al Tawheed. The ISIS felt like they were in serious danger and decided to increase their presence in Iraq and Syria. Amro Al Absi recommended that Al Baghdadi asks for support from Afghanistan, Chechnya, Yemen, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, and Egypt. However, most of the group members there rejected them and everyone felt frustrated. Al Athir was also worried about what taking place especially that a large group in Aleppo ( Liwa Al Tawhid) were gaining more control with 20,000 fighters. They were five times more in number than that of ISIS.
Who is Abu Ayman, a member of ISIS? What is the responsibility of Othamn from Saudi Arabia? Did al Baghdadi consider going back to Iraq and why?

Al Baghdadi informed Al Athir that he should execute everyone in the prisons in Aleppo and not leave any single person alive. This was the same time that Al Baghdadi considered going back to Iraq because he was worried that something bad is going to happen. However, three people tried convincing him not to do so and they were Haji Bakr, Abu Ali Al Anbari, and finally Abu Ayman who was a senior leader in ISIS. Haji Bakr, who was killed recently, informed him that it is even more dangerous to go back to Iraq and this is going to cause even more divisions. Al Anbari asked Othman Nazih to speak to the soldiers and inform them about the importance of fighting for ISIS and dying for it. Al Anbari also gave him the responsibility of motivating them and speaking to them whenever something serious is taking place and continuously informing them about the important of staying loyal to ISIS. There were concerns that Al Anbari has hired a spy inside ISIS and this is one of the dangerous rumours taking place. Amr El Eissa, a member of ISIS, gave him a list of people who should be executed in the Free Syria Army and in the Islamic Front.
How was it planned to kill the leader of Free Syria Army? Did Al Baghdadi consider carrying out plans outside of Syria and where?

The leader of the Iraqi group is Daiish Abu Awad. Al Baghdadi was meeting several times with the leaders of the group and this was considered to be the worst times for them. They have lost a large number of men and Al Baghdadi asked two days before that for the statistics of those following him which were only 1,757 mostly from Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Libya, and Algeria. He also found out that most fighters who left him would go to al Nusrah Front and he asked to do everything they can whether it is by media, religious methods, or finding more fighters to increase his strength. He also asked Al Qahtani to protect any religious sayings made from any Sheikh who would oppose him. Al Qahtani was the most excited for this and he even changed his name to Abu Bakr. Al Qahtani called Al Faiiz and informed him that he should increase his media presence again and do everything he can to save ISIS. Faiiz was also loyal to him where he was originally fighting in Iraq and then illegally entered Saudi Arabia and then jailed after he was shot in the leg. Faiiz informed them that he going to do everything he can and provide them with important information and that they should trust him. He also appointed other members who were Abd el Rahman Sultan, Rayan Abu Hamid, Adnan Al Shaalan, and Tamiim Al Qaadi. Al Baghdadi also informed Al Anbari to stop fighting against Bashaar Al Asads forces and focus on fighting those who dont support him, especially from Al Nusrah Front and the Islamic Front. He also made two important decisions during that time.
1) There is no way that he is going to be able to defeat them without suicide bombers. 2) An explosive operation has to take place in Turkey so he can cut down the Turkish and Western support.
He strongly believed that there is no way that he was going to be able to defeat opposing parties without these two important decisions.

There were about twenty to thirty fighters who split from the ISIS on a daily basis. They found that fighters from Saudi Arabia were the most likely to split and that Tunisians were the least. This is when he ordered that the suicide bombers should be Saudi as much as possible, and that Tunisians shouldnt be involved since theyre the most loyal. He also tried gaining more fighters but wasnt successful at all. He appointed Abu Jaafar from Tunisia as a senior and asked him to try to bring fighters from Tunisia, Libya, Turkey, and Egypt and he should do this without the governments of these countries finding out. Abu Jaafar also tried appointing fighters from opposing groups in Syria and even offered them $1500 to join them. However, this didnt work at all but they were only successful in hiring Abu Musaab Al Zarqawi from Jordan which wasnt his original name but was changed by Al Baghdadi so he can sound more important and religious. He provided Al Baghdadi with a lot of important information but he was still angry at other members of ISIS because they werent doing anything to stop the divisions. He was also interested in appointing two Saudi personalities and they were Abu Al Zubair and Adel Al Murshadi and he informed them that they should start supporting ISIS publicly. Abu Zubair is a previous fighter in several countries and knows numerous senior leaders but he refused to make any public announcement and decided to only help him in finding fighters. Abu Zubair also called numerous groups in the gulf, especially the Green council which is led by Abu Nasser Al Shamri, and informed them that they should join Al Baghdadi. However, they refused and informed them that they arent going to join him unless Sheiks Al Elwan and Al Tarifi tell them to do so. Abu Zubair then tried to contact another group which is Al Ezz eagles which consisted of mainly Saudis but they rejected as well. It was obvious to Al Baghdadi that he doesnt have a lot of supporters anymore. Al Baghdadi then appointed Al Murshidi to speak to the Sheikhs to support ISISor at least remain quiet about where they stand. From the people he spoke to where Aliwi Al Shamri. Another person was Hammad Al Rayes but he refused to publicly announce his support because he claimed that he was scared from the government of Saudi Arabia and that he will only provide a fatwa.
