ISIS declares a new Islamic State

On Sunday, the Islamic State in Iraq and Iraq (ISIS, sometimes called ISIL) declared a new caliphate simply called the Islamic State. This area includes the territory gained in northeastern Syria and parts of Iraq. With the heaviest fighting coming in only the past two weeks, the extremist group seems ready to announce that is has achieved its primary goal: the establishment of a independent state.

“The legality of all emirates, groups, states and organizations becomes null by the expansion of the caliph’s authority and the arrival of its troops to their areas,” said the spokesman, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, in an audio statement posted online. “Listen to your caliph and obey him. Support your state, which grows every day.”

Indeed a video, called “Breaking Borders” from ISIS reportedly shows a member of the group standing on the uncontested border between Iraw and Syria.

The announcement of al-Baghdadi may begin a new round of infighting as other Sunni groups who supported the efforts of ISIS have been looking forward to sharing power of the new state.
