• ISIS Leader: ‘Islam is the Religion of War’

    The Islamic State put out an audio message Thursday that’s said to be from Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, an ISIS leader who was thought to have been killed or badly injured last week in a series of air strikes.

    Bakr al-Baghdadi’s message in the audio clip is reportedly a call to arms to radical Muslims of the world to attack non-Muslims and to join ISIS groups wherever possible.

    “March Forth Whether Heavy or Light,” which is a passage in the Koran, demands that Islamist “strive with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allah.” Baghdadi believes and argues that it’s ISIS that is “Striving” to win the war against all non-Muslims:

    Where are you in relation to your Prophet (peace be upon him), whom you claim to emulate, and who spent his whole life (peace be upon him) as a mujāhid for the cause of Allah, fighting His enemies? His lateral incisor tooth was broken in battle, his forehead was wounded, two rings from his chainmail cut his cheeks, his helmet was broken on his head, and blood ran down his face.

    Al-Baghdadi also goes unto say “O Muslims, Islam was never for a day the religion of peace. Islam is the religion of war,” according to an English language transcript of the speech.

    So much for being the “religion of peace.”
