Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, ISIS chief: 'Islam is the religion of war'

Shocked ... shocked!

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi sent out a chilling message to fellow Muslims in an online post, calling on fellow followers of the faith to get in the religious war – that Islam has never been about peace.

His message, titled "March Forth Whether Heavy or Light," was posted at the online site, Downrange, and points to a single verse in the Koran calling on believers to "strive with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allah," Jihad Watch reported.

And al-Baghdadi's post: "O Muslims, Islam was never for a day the religion of peace. Islam is the religion of war."

He then appealed directly to fellow believers to get in the fight.

"Where are you in relation to your prophet (peace be upon him) whom you claim to emulate, and who spent his whole life ... as a mujahid for the cause of Allah, fighting for his enemies? His lateral incisor tooth was broken in battle, his forehead was wounded, two rings from his chainmail cut his cheeks, his helmet was broken on his head and blood ran down his face."

Al-Baghdadi also said Muslims ought to realize "the Jews, the Christians and the rest of the disbelievers" will not "abandon waging war against you until you follow their religion and apostatize from yours," and as such, should join ISIS.

"This war is only against you and against your religion," he wrote, Jihad Watch reported. "Has the time not come for you to return to your religion and your jihad and thereby bring back your glory, honor, rights and leadership? Has the time not come for you to know that there is no might nor honor nor safety nor rights for you except in the shade of the caliphate? ... Therefore, O Muslims, seek shelter, after Allah, with the Islamic State."
