ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

Daily Mail: The leader of Islamic State has declared ‘Islam is the religion of fighting’ in a rare audio message which called on all Muslims to ‘fight for the caliphate’.
Islamic State released the message yesterday claiming it was from its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the extremist group executed 26 civilians before reaching the gates of an ancient Syrian city amid fears they could destroy it.
The audio message posted on militant websites features a voice that sounds like al-Baghdadi’s exhorting all Muslims to take up arms and fight on behalf of the group’s self-styled caliphate.
In it the leader, who had not been seen or heard from in months, said: ‘Islam was never a religion of peace. Islam is the religion of fighting. No one should believe that the war that we are waging is the war of the Islamic State.’
‘It is the war of all Muslims, but the Islamic State is spearheading it,’ he said. ‘It is the war of Muslims against infidels. O Muslims go to war everywhere. It is the duty of every Muslim.’
It was not immediately possible to verify whether the voice was al-Baghdadi’s.
The last audio message purportedly from the Iraqi-born fanatic came in November, days after Iraqi officials said he was wounded in an airstrike on a town near the Syrian border. Al-Baghdadi has only appeared in public once, in a video showing him delivering a Friday sermon in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul last July, shortly after it was captured by his group.
In the latest message, al-Baghdadi blasted Arab rulers, calling them ‘guarding dogs’ and saying the war in Yemen will lead to the end of the Saudi royal family’s rule.
Meanwhile Islamic State fighters executed 26 civilians as they swarmed through villages near the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra. The militants beheaded 10 of their victims as they advanced to the gates of the world heritage site today, raising fears it could face destruction of the kind the jihadists have already wreaked on similar sites in Iraq.
As it overran nearby villages, IS executed the victims for ‘collaborating with the regime,’ the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Syria’s head of antiquities issued an urgent appeal for international action to save Palmyra, saying extremist militants were less than two kilometres (barely a mile) from the remains of one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world. The world ‘must mobilise before, not after, the destruction of the artefacts’ at the site, Mamoun Abdulkarim said in a telephone call.
‘IS has not entered the city yet, and we hope these barbarians will never enter,’ he said. ‘But if IS enters Palmyra, it will be destroyed and it will be an international catastrophe,’ Abdulkarim added.
UNESCO describes Palmyra as a heritage site of ‘outstanding universal value’. The ancient city stood on a caravan route at the crossroads of several civilisations and its 1st and 2nd century temples and colonnaded streets mark a unique blend of Graeco-Roman and Persian influences.
Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said the city was ‘under threat’ as fierce fighting and shelling continued on its eastern edges amid a regime counter-offensive.
The jihadist advance on the well-preserved remains came as an international conference was underway in Cairo to address destruction already wreaked by IS on the ancient sites of Nimrud and Hatra in Iraq.

Poor ISIS, maybe if they just had jobs they wouldn’t be so angry.

    A quick skim through their demonic koran will verify islam has nothing to do with peace, except perhaps the tranquility of the world under their domination.

  2. At least he’s honest about his ( so-called )
    religion .

  3. But, but Obama said ISIS/ISIL/Islamic State is not Islamic! And George W. Bush said islam is a religion of peace!
    I’m confused…. /sarc

    • I know, me too! I wonder how Obama will instruct his lap dogs in the media to spin this?

    • So am I;So are THEY;wait-what?? STOP YELLING! Sorry-the voices in my head say they want ice cream….

  4. Wow, direct from the horse’s mouth and not from progressive left/liberal appeasing butt-kissers (who should now look stupid, if their minds worked right and register that)…

    • Now that it’s been said by a “Leader”,will they spin it to be a lie,or to be MORE true?

  5. Hey this guy isn’t REALLY a Muslim, right?
    Ask the idiot U.S. Attorney from Boston.

    When King David had taken a census, against God’s command, around 70,000 Israelis died with the plague. In the taking of the Census, this was as if to say—Look what we did.—Instead of giving God the glory of winning the battle through them..(Nothing they had done, it was God’s Work)>>>King David Repented & the plague was stayed—>>>When George Bush flew into the aircraft carrier on the plane after the invasion of Iraq…George Bush was saying—Look what mighty men we are. Look what we have done.—Giving God no glory. George Bush did not repent as did King David and LOOK WHAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE IRAQ…>>>Categorize me as a liberal or conservative—fine—the presentation of categories only initiate stagnation where people cannot move forward. They limit the ability to learn from others—after all they are a conservative or they are a liberal. >>>These things I have learned from the past & I am able to march forward only in the present, working for a more productive future>>>. May the Mighty God of Israel—the Father of my Lord, Jesus Christ bless each of you.
    This nation was formed for two reasons
    They are—
    (l) to deliver the message of salvation through Jesus Christ.
    (2) to stand behind the new, yet ancient nation of Israel.
    Had Peter said, with your help, Lord, I will never deny you, he would not have denied our Lord.
    With God’s help, I will never deny my Lord. He will not forsake me nor allow my Seed to beg bread. Now who is the bread of Life??? It is Jesus, Jesus the Christ of Nazareth of the Seed of David. His birth certificate was registered in Bethlehem, He was born in Bethlehem. He was of the Seed of David.
    Gotta go,
    Love ya,
