First, ISIS terrorists declared a caliphate called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, shortened recently to just IS (Islamic State). Now competing terrorists in Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra Front, declares an Islamic Caliphate in Levant (Greater Syria).
The leader of the terrorist group, Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front), which is al-Qaeda’s official branch in Syria, Abu Muhammad al-Joulani has declared to his followers his group’s intention to establish an “Islamic Emirate” in al-Sham (the Levant or Greater Syria). This came less than two weeks after his former leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, declared the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate under his leadership as Caliph and that is run by his terrorist group “the Islamic State”, after it was called “the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL) aka Islamic State of Iraq & Syria/al-Sham (ISIS).
These are the so-called (by Barack Hussein Obama) “moderate” FSA rebels to whom Obama wants to give $500 million more U.S. taxpayer dollars.

The group said the rebels accused the residents of “collaboration with the criminal regime” of President Bashar al-Assad, and executed the 14. Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman the seven men were accused of working with the regime, though the village is majority Sunni, like the uprising against Assad.

MMEMonitorMideast SIS emir and newly, self-appointed Caliph for all Muslims Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State, emerged from the shadows to lead Friday prayers at Mosul’s Great Mosque, calling on the world’s Muslims to “obey” him as the head of the caliphate declared by the Sunni jihadist group. The notoriously secretive jihadi, who has never before been seen in public, chose the first Friday prayer service of Ramadan to make an audacious display of power in the city that Salafist Islamists have now controlled for three weeks.
Speaking from the balcony in his new incarnation as self-anointed “Caliph Ibrahim”, al-Baghdadi announced himself as “the leader who presides over you”, urging Muslims to join him and “make jihad” for the sake of Allah.

As ISIS continues its violent jihad through Syria and Iraq, many fear that Jordan will be next. Although Jordan is one of the most modern and Westernized Muslim nations in the Middle East, it has a large contingent of radicalized Salafists who want to see Jordan turned into an Islamic fundamentalist hellhole.
At two rallies in Maan this week, scores of young men, some in black masks, raised their fists, waved home-made banners bearing the logo and inscriptions of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and shouted, “Down, down with Abdullah,” the king of Jordan. Abdullah II, a close U.S. ally, is widely viewed as a moderate in a country considered an oasis of stability in the Middle East.
