This is just an addendum if we turn to the Qur'an Surat al-Noor 55 we find the foundation of the so called Islamic caliphate and if we turn to al-Tabari this is what he says

{ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْض } يَقُول : لَيُوَرِّثَنَّهُمْ اللَّه أَرْض الْمُشْرِكِينَ مِنَ الْعَرَب وَالْعَجَم , فَيَجْعَلهُمْ مُلُوكهَا وَسَاسَتهَا

Or and establishing the caliphate on earth means Allah make them (muslims) inherit the lands of the kuffar from the Arabs and the Persians and he (Allah) makes them kings and those in charge

And if you want to read more about this caliphate here is al-Tabari's exegesis


Now as usual the Ulama filled in the gaps and they tell us that al-Khalifa must be a member of the tribe of Quraish (and this is what the terrorist al-Baghdadi is saying) and that he must invite all Muslims to move and live in his little al-Dawla al-Islamiyya and what sould be next? It would be Roma (Rome) or the rest of the world

So anyone who says that this is not Islamic and these are only terrorists does not really know what the Islamic sources tell us

So it seems to me that ISIS and its leaders are the real Muslims that follow the real Islam
