What the new caliphate means for world
WND ^ | 7/2/2014 | Joel Richardson

Posted on 07/02/2014 5:07:48 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

he potential implications for the world are absolutely profound. First, according to Islamic jurisprudence, once a caliph has been declared, it is mandatory upon all Muslims to make a pledge of allegiance to the sitting caliph, known in Arabic as the bay’ah. The bay’ah translated is as follows:

“I pledge my allegiance to the Commander of the Faithful, to hear and obey, in hardship and in blessings, to establish the religion of Allah, and to enforce Allah’s Shariah, and to expand the order of Allah, to establish the global Islamic state.”

According to various hadith (Muslim sacred traditions found outside of the Quran), if one does not make the pledge, he will die the death of jahiliyya, or as a non-Muslim, and should be treated as a non-Muslim:

“[W]hen he stands before Allah on the Day of Judgment, and one who dies without having bound himself by an oath of allegiance (to an Amir) will die the death of one belonging to the days of Jahillyya.” (Abu Muslim 20: 4562)

Already, there have been numerous tribal leaders and jihadi groups that have pledged their allegiance to the caliph with their lives. What groups will follow? What might it look like if various groups such as Boko Haram in Nigeria, al-Shabab in Somalia and Kenya, al-Qaida in Yemen, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Hamas in Gaza and the West Bank, and perhaps even segments of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and throughout the world begin swearing allegiance to the caliph? The dangers of a snowballing trend is profound. Rather than having an Islamic State spanning segments of Syria and Iraq, there could be smaller segments of the Islamic State in numerous other nations.

Time to nuke the lot of them. As Ann Coulter once said, nuke ‘em, take their oil and convert the survivors to Christianity.

I think she said something along the lines of invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity. Don’t recall her including oil seizure...

This ritualistic crap reminds me more of a big, Jim Jones kook aid party than any form of “government”.

I wish it were that easy, but it's not :(

if we could just carry off their oil, we would have done it ages ago. But the reality is the oil is stuck in the ground and can only be removed a little at a time over a long period of time.

Which leaves us with two choices. Kill them all then occupy the oil areas with contractors to extract the oil over the coming decades in peace (the modern world would never allow this option)

or

Deal with these moronic murderers as long as they can keep the oil flowing and more or less keep to themselves.

What the new caliphate means for the world?

To be, or not to be…

that is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to: ‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause—there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of dispriz’d love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovere’d country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of action.

Hamlet Act 3, scene 1, 55–87

Who is the senior advisor to Homeland Security that Obama has just appointed, that the article was referring to?

Isn’t each “caliph” supposed to be a lineal descendent of Mohammed?

Does THIS self-annointed “caliph” have that pedigree?

No?

Let’s make sure the “jihadies” know they’ve been fooled. Again.

Most of the world is in denial. I’m sure the screaming jihadis will be happy to take advantage of that fact.

As crazy as it sounds, that is starting to look like a valid option.

Or as Fonzie said when he played Hamlet on Happy Days;”He’s talking about taking the big dive here people”. And speaking of “The undiscovere’d country,from whose bourn no traveler returns” Richie’s older brother Chuck was in this episode.

What it should mean is ISIS-fueled fireworks for the 4th of July or earlier.

Does anyone have a clue why the vast majority of the world that considers itself civilized isn't dropping their differences for the moment and together eliminating ISIS, before that cancer spreads any further?

..once a caliph has been declared, it is mandatory upon all Muslims to make a pledge of allegiance ...

Um, declared by whom exactly?
What if Iran so declares one, as well?
Does this bind Iranian citizens now or what?

It will be easier when the targets are identified.

Who elected Al Baghdadi to the Job? Isn’t the Islamic college in Cairo to do this? Isn’t the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem? Expect to see nut case Islamic people in the US vowing to support him and doing acts of terror soon. This must be making lots of squishy Islamic people—Like the Royal Family in Saudi Arabia-— quake in their slippers. Maybe this is a reform of Islam that has been needed for a long time. We in the Christian World should be on alert-—After they are done solitifying their empire—they will come for us! Spain, Greece, Italy will be first but we are in their crosshairs too.

Has Obama made his pledge, yet?

Apparently that fight is what defines the split between the sunni and the shia muslims that has figured into the various wars in Iraq. The shia (10 - 13% minority) believe so. The sunni (87 - 90% majority) believe not. The ISIS forces are sunni.

OK, it's by Couric; but here's a condensed explanation on video that should have been published ten years ago:

Now I Get It: Sunni vs. Shia Muslims in Iraq

Yes. He made it in his book years ago saying he would stand with the Muslims.
