The Islamic State

In December 2014 Al Azhar refused to denounce the Islamic State as “un-Islamic”. Why would they do that if what ISIS does has nothing to do with Islam like so many in the West insist?

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi (1971- ) - First Caliph of the new Islamic State (ISIS, ISIL) created in 2014. PH.D in Islamic Studies. Released from a U.S. detention camp in 2009. Former Muslim Brotherhood leader. According to Sheik Qaradawi,

  1. “this youth [al-Baghdadi] was from the start among the top ranks of the Brotherhood, but he was inclined to [positions of] leadership and so forth…  Then, after he spent years in prison [for Brotherhood activities] he came out and joined with them [nascent Islamic State],” eventually rising to be its “caliph.”
