Inhuman ISIL Leader Urges Attacks in Saudi Arabia

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi

ISIL leader Abu Bakr Baghdadi called for attacks in Saudi Arabia, said his “Caliphate” was expanding across the Arab world and called for “volcanoes of jihad” across the globe in a speech purported to be in his name Thursday.

Baghdadi also said that a U.S.-led military campaign against his group in Syria and Iraq was failing. Reuters could not independently confirm the authenticity of the speech, which was carried on “jihadi” websites.
