Casblanca – Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the so-called “Caliphate” established by the Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and the Levant, called on all Muslims, especially from Morocco to “obey.”
In a recent video circulating social media, IS attacks Moroccan political and religious figures such as Omar Haddouchi, Mustapha Ramid and Abdeslam Yassine.
The members of the organization criticize the intentions of the Salafi Omar Haddouchi concerning the jihad. As for the deceased Abdeslam Yassine, he is depicted as “polytheistic” and Mustapha Ramid is nominated as the “minister of injustice”.
According to Telquel news, in addition to the offensive remarks against Moroccan politicians, eight Moroccans belonging to Baghdadi’s movement, “plan to bring the jihad (striving in the way of God) on Moroccan land” as the leader of IS himself has proclaimed.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi continued: “These jihadists who speak an Arabic mixed with Darija (the Moroccan dialect), said that they are happy to be able to attend the khilafa (caliphate) in their lifetime and are ready to implement this system in Morocco.”
On July 5, the organization known as the Islamic State in Iraqi and Levant cities finally decided to unveil its mysterious leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to the public eye. In the video he asked for obedience as he views himself to be the leader of all Muslims around the world.
Dressed in traditional attire and a black turban, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi claimed, “I am the Wali (leader) appointed to lead you, but I am not better than you, if you think I’m right, help me and if you think I’m wrong advise me and put me on the right path. Obey me as long as you obey God in you.”
The recording, however, is unauthenticated and many are convinced it is no more than a tasteless provocation.
