A new video has surfaced of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Caliph of the Islamic State. Mr. Baghdadi has been reported killed on multiple occasions, but he keeps popping up again. This is said to be the first video of him to be released in almost five years.
The clip below contains a brief excerpt from the new video. A subtitled version of the full-length video of the caliph’s remarks is currently being processed, and will be available soon. In the meantime, enjoy these samples of the wit and wisdom of the Mujahid-in-Chief.
Many thanks to Ibn Al Malek for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|00:00||The battle between Islam and its followers, and the Cross and its followers,|
|00:07||is a long one.|
|00:12||The battle of Baghouz [Kurdish offensive against ISIS in Syria] has ended [March 23, 2019],|
|00:16||and during it the barbarism and savagery|
|00:21||of the Nation of the Cross against the Ummah [nation] of Islam became apparent.|
|00:26||And at the same time, it [the battle] revealed|
|00:32||the courage, the agility, and endurance of the Ummah of Islam.|
|00:40||And this endurance shook the hearts of the Crusaders|
|00:45||and intensified their rage.
