Al-Baghdadi is just an Imam as many others who are Imam. What makes him qualified to be a Khalifa and be the successor of their Prophet? Is he a mujtahid? How can the article suggest that ISIS was egged on by the government of Bashar al-Assad? Assad is a Shia and would he help a Sunni organisation to help an invasion against Shias? Odd logic. And at the same time, Gulf money and US logistical help is suggested backing them! International politics is turning the world on its head.
