In the following video Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan addresses a cheering throng about the ongoing attempted invasion of Greece by the horde of migrants he has released from Turkish prisons and refugee camps. Mr. Erdogan’s ringing words of victory are a mixture of Turkish nationalism and Islamic supremacism.
When the would-be Caliph mentions “Islam’s last army”, he is referring to the end times, which will come after the soldiers of Allah have defeated the unbelievers in the final battle. Then Issa (the Islamic Jesus) will emerge to kill any remaining infidels who have not submitted, and thereby usher in the global reign of the perfect Islamic state.

|00:00||“This storm that is breaking out is the Turkish horde, my Lord!|
|00:06||The horde that will die for your sake, O Lord!|
|00:10||Until the glory of your name rises with the call to prayer|
|00:15||Win the victory because this is Islam’s last army.”|
|00:26||Yes, this storm that breaks is our army.|
|00:32||Allah stands behind it along with the prayers of millions of our friends.|
|00:39||This storm is the heart of our nation. Everyone sees or will see what it is capable of.
