ISIS leader declares ‘Islam was never a religion of peace. Islam is the religion of fighting’

The leader of Islamic State has declared ‘Islam is the religion of fighting’ in a rare audio message which called on all Muslims to ‘fight for the caliphate’.

Islamic State released the message yesterday claiming it was from its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the extremist group executed 26 civilians before reaching the gates of an ancient Syrian city amid fears they could destroy it.

The audio message posted on militant websites features a voice that sounds like al-Baghdadi’s exhorting all Muslims to take up arms and fight on behalf of the group’s self-styled caliphate.

In it the leader, who had not been seen or heard from in months, said: ‘Islam was never a religion of peace. Islam is the religion of fighting. No one should believe that the war that we are waging is the war of the Islamic State.’

  • The word “caliph” means successor (to Mohammed). Thus, to claim to be a caliph is to claim to be the current leader of Islam.

    I find his honesty refreshing.

      Unlike western “progressives”, as a Muslim leader he is in a position to actually know the character of his own religion. The next person who tells you that Islam is a religion of peace needs to have a lesson in context – punch them in the face and explain to them, as they are crying, that THAT is what peace is according to them.

  • I give him credit for that. Unlike the rest of the billion Muslims, who lie and misrepresent their religion, he is honest enough to admit that Islam is a murderous cult.

      Yes, but don’t hold your breath.

    This why CAIR and other professional Muslims claim ISIL to be a perversion of Islam. As William Blake famously wrote,

    “A truth that’s told with bad intent

    Beats all the lies you can invent.”

    That society should always be over there,never allow them to step up here in the WEST.
