ISIS Head Makes First Video Appearance

Tyler Durden's picture


A few days ago we reported that the blitz surge of the "cool", social network-friendly faction of Al-Qaeda known as ISIS, which over the past week went so far as to declare the formation of its own sovereign state, the Islamic State on the territory of Iraq and Syria, has so irked not only the conventional enemies of extremist fundamentalist Islam but also none other than al-Qaeda itself, which as we explained before may be forced to go to war against ISIS in order to preserve its waning relevance, status and credibility.

At the center of this rapid and dramatic ascent by a group virtually nobody had heard of as recently as a month ago is a man called Aby Bakr al-Baghdadi, who unlike the leaders of al-Qaeda, has kept an extremely low profile despite his recent appointment as "caliph" by the jihadists.

Until now.

As BBC reports, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of Islamist militant group Isis, has called on Muslims to obey him, in his first video sermon. The video appears to have been filmed on Friday during a sermon at the al-Nouri Mosque in Mosul, northern Iraq. It surfaced on Saturday amid reports that he had been killed or wounded in an Iraqi air raid.

The release is notable because the reclusive militant leader has never appeared on video before, although there are photographs of him.

From BBC:

In the sermon, at Mosul's most famous landmark, Baghdadi praised the establishment of the "Islamic state", which was declared by Isis last Sunday.


"Appointing a leader is an obligation on Muslims, and one that has been neglected for decades," he said.


He also said that he did not seek out the position of being the caliph, or leader, calling it a "burden". "I am your leader, though I am not the best of you, so if you see that I am right, support me, and if you see that I am wrong, advise me," he told worshippers.

In other words, his first video was merely an ideological and emotional appeal to Muslims everywhere to side with him. It remains to be seen if Baghdadi will transform into just another typical Muslim blaming the sorry economic state of his country on Bush, something al Qaeda and others have done before him.

For those curious to see Baghdadi's complete video appearance, it is shown below in its entirety.


Baghdadi's full speech, translated courtesy of Francois Gatete, is below.

BTW, Baghdadi's line is a beauty for a guy running an organization cutting peoples' heads off:

"I am your leader, though I am not the best of you, so if you see that I am right, support me, and if you see that I am wrong, advise me," he told worshippers."

Harlequin001, it's not kind, it's in the Quran. Before attacking an infidel enemy, you have to formally invite him to convert and obey. If he refuses, you can go ahead.

I wouldn't worry about this here one, though. First the bogeyman Bin Laden, then this one... it's getting a bit old. All aimed at scaring you Americans, who are already the most paranoid country on the planet. But, as it seems plenty of US suckers are still buying into the "international threats to America" BS, why should they bother with another narrative?

Imagine that: the only country never invaded by anyone, and which built itself on invading others (namely the Native Americans), is also the most fearful one. It keeps seeing dark conspiracies against "its security" everywhere, its own people included, and it rules by fearmongering on a grand scale.

Poetic justice?

Correct.  Despite what many people think they are not enjoined to kill the infidel.  You give him the option of converting and if he declines, then you can kill him.  Seems fair enough to me....

Where to start... I didn't think so few words could have so many issues...

I'll keep it two points (that are probably less obvious to people who don't live in democracies),

1) The (nominally democratic) election of autocrats is not democracy, it is, at best, indirect democracy, which is why there is normally a qualifier, such as representative or parliamentary attached- to neuter the core concept, so as to render it meaningless. Calling these methods of governance "democracy" is akin to calling artificial insemination... sex.

2) The only thing certain in a democracy is that no one gets the government they want. Perhaps this why democracies are not more popular.

popular sovereignty is a bad way to run a household, a business, or a government.  pandering to the lowest common denominator is a good way to drive yourself into oblivion.  many monarchies survived the centuries by allowing the most capable son to succeed to the throne

That debate about democracies has been going on a couple thousand years. In the interim we have learned that democracy is perfectly capable of surviving- contingent upon education and participation of the citizenry. Monarchies are concerned primarily with their own perpetuation, propagation and prosperity, if they can drag a country along for the ride, great, but whether that is a "good" way to organize a country is another matter.

I'm not sure any one religion has a monopoly on murderous intolerance, or flaming wingnuts, if history is any guide. However, whatever the religious persuasion of the speaker, when he says, "God talks only to me, now do what I say He says," you can be sure that the religion he's selling is not a legitimate path up the mountain.

How is that different from the soldier, cop or other lowly "public servant" bureaucrat? They also claim to be just following orders.

“Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money.” — George Carlin

You may be confusing the religion of "patriotism" with the excuse of "orders.

They are apples and oranges different.

"Following orders" is an excuse and/or wall for someone to hide behind. What they are saying is that the reason for their criminality and crimes lies outside them and that it is not their fault. Like the gun and badge thug robbing you and saying, "It's the law."

Part of the $3.1 billion in military aid given every year to Israel goes for Paveway kits. There's also plenty of Paveways in the $1.2 billion U.S. strategic stockpile in Israel (which they have always been allowed to use). They have mountains of GBU-28s which they intend to USE on Iran, but only as a backup. Their primary plan for Fordow is to order their lapdogs in the U.S. Congress to bomb it for them with MOPs.

Good for him. The caliphate will probably be 100x more functional than Congress.

Let them have at it; create whatever government they want.  I am chopping wood and carrying water out here in Cali, and I do not care to mix myself up in their doings out there in the Empty Quarter.

Ever notice how the lame stream follows media releases from the Iraqi government and publishes them in order to quell worries that the ISIS situation is getting out of control?

The Iraqi press announcements are the equivalent of Saddam Hussein's Bagdad Bob.

Last week, media outlets were releasing headlines of "ISIS leader reported killed".  As soon as I read that their 'source' was the Iraqi government, I knew it was shite.

You mean Shiite? ;-) Yes, Iraqi government is Shiite and shite. ISIS is Sunni but also shite. Very confusing. You just need to remember they are all shite.

"...but also none other than al-Qaeda itself, which as we explained before may be forced to go to war against ISIS in order to preserve its waning relevance, status and credibility."

What we see emerging here is the Islamic version of a free market. One in terrorism. HE who fires the most AKs & RPGs and bombs/tortures/beheads, kills the most infidels and causes most collateral damage will win the Obama/CIA prize of m.o.a.r funding.

How on earth does anyone understand Washington is arming those dudes in Syria and (sort of) fighting them (but cautiously) in Iraq? And when faced with ISIL, they go, "oh, well, we didn't see that coming, what with the NSA's holidays, er... ", and enthusiastically carry on arming them in Syria?

Nuts, I say. It is totally freaking nutty.

You won't see France cooperating anytime soon with the U.S. on anything.I'd be surprised to see France stay in NATO.I think you'll see a new role for France trading with Iran and Russia and making all kinds of arrangements with the BRICS.The sooner a lot of these countries dump the dollar and stop taking part in U.S. foreign policy along with the SWIFT system the farther ahead they'll be.Sure beats giving away a cool 10 billion to a bunch of crooks in Washington.

Religion, just another weapon in the arsenal to use to take control, you see Christianity being rolled out in the US as well particularly at election time by candidates, sobbing about how they support good christian values, hypocritical pricks, and its used by US presidents at times to justify actions, hypocritical pricks, needed saying twice.

Here's what a muslim scholar has to say:


When a people cannot themselves see, there will always be those who would gleefully exploit the opportunity to put a chain around their necks, weapons in their hands and money in their pockets, in order to lead them to establish such absurdities as a bogus Islamic Caliphate and to recognize and embrace a false and bogus Im?m al-Mahdi.

That is precisely what is now emerging in Iraq.

It is bogus because of the source of weapons and finance. Who is supplying the state-of-the-art weapons and the finance for this so-called Jih?d? The answer is quite obvious. It is the same Zionist Santa Claus who did it previously in Libya and Syria, who is now doing it in Iraq.

It is also bogus because the Qur'an has prohibited Mualims from entering into such a relationship with an alliance of Jews and Christians. That Judeo-Christian alliance now exists in the Zionist Judeo-Christian alliance which controls power in modern western civilization. The price that they pay for their alliance with NATO in Libya, Syria and now in ISIS, is that they are no longer a part of the community of Muslims. Rather they have now joined Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and the leaders of the Pakistan Armed Forces as part of the Judeo-Christian Zionist alliance.
