Dead Man Walking:
ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdaadi, identified with photo
Abu Bakr al-Baghdaadi photo revealed by Iraqi authorities.
It is a virtual warrant for his assassination. The U.S. has a 10 million dollar reward on his head. Only caveman, Ayman Zawaahiri, has an higher one at 25 million.
His real name is pretentiously: Ibraaheem ‘Awwaad Ibraaheem ‘Ali Al-Badri Al-Rawadhi Al-Saamirraa’iy (His “nisba” refers to the city of Samarra, Saamirraa`).
His nom de guerre is ABU Bakr Al-Baghdaadi Al-Qurashi Al-Hussayni. An analysis of his name indicates membership in the large Iraqi Al-Saamirraa’iy السامرائ Sunni clan.
His code name is fanciful suggesting origins in Muhammad The Messenger’s tribe of Quraysh and even connection to the one of Shi’ism’s fountainheads, Al-Hussayn Ibn ‘Ali Ibn Abi Taaleb.
But, even more amusing is the fact that Samarra was built as a garrison town for Turkic mercenaries during the Middle Ages by the Abbasid Caliphs.
It has the name of Samarra from a literary contraction of Surra Man Ra`aa سُرّ من رأى which means “He who sees it is pleased”.
I think the buffoon is a fraud. He may not even be of Arab descent.
