ISIS Officially Declares New Islamic Caliphate

For years the prospect of a new Islamic caliphate has entranced the minds of jihadi crazies around the globe and their polar opposite western islamophobes. Now ISIS has officially declared a reborn Caliphate with its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the new Caliph. They’ve even conjured up a purported genealogy for al-Baghdadi, making him a descendent of Muhammad. In an ancillary rebranding they’ve also dropped the IS or IL from their four letter abbreviation, now going simply by IS for “Islamic State”, as in, the Islamic state, the only legitimate one.
