Great quotes - caliphate

"... the shaykh (sheikh), the mujāhid, the scholar who practices what he preaches, the worshipper, the leader, the warrior, the reviver, descendent from the family of the Prophet, the slave of Allah, Ibrāhīm Ibn ‘Awwād Ibn Ibrāhīm Ibn ‘Alī Ibn Muhammad al-Badr i al-Hāshimī al-Husayn ī al-Qurashī by lineage, as-Sāmurrā’ī by birth and upbringing, al-Baghdādī by residence and scholarship. And he has accepted the bay’ah (pledge of allegiance). Thus, he is the imam and khalīfah for the Muslims everywhere..."

- ISIS, dropping the second 'IS' (Iraq and al-Sham) to proclaim themselves the Islamic state and the new caliphate, with Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim Abdel Mu’min Ali Al Badri’ – Abu Da’a a.k.a. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the head honcho (to whom everyone else needs to swear allegiance...).  

And what is the caliphate? Well, in their own words:

"... Here the flag of the Islamic State, the flag of tawhīd (monotheism), rises and flutters. Its shade covers land from Aleppo to Diyala. Beneath it, the walls of the tawāghīt (rulers claiming the rights of Allah) have been demolished, their flags have fallen, and their borders have been destroyed. Their soldiers are either killed, imprisoned, or defeated. The Muslims are honored. The kuffār (infidels) are disgraced. Ahlus-Sunnah (the Sunnis) are masters and are esteemed. The people of bid’ah (heresy) are humiliated. The hudūd (Sharia penalties) are implemented – the hudūd of Allah – all of them. The frontlines are defended. Crosses and graves are demolished. Prisoners are released by the edge of the sword. The people in the lands of the State move about for their livelihood and journeys, feeling safe regarding their lives and wealth. Wulāt (plural of wālīor “governors”) and judges have been appointed. Jizyah (a tax imposed on kuffār) has been enforced. Fay’ (money taken from the kuffār without battle) and zakat (obligatory alms) have been collected. Courts have been established to resolve disputes and complaints. Evil has been removed. Lessons and classes have been held in the masājid (plural of masjid) and, by the grace of Allah, the religion has become completely for Allah. There only remained one matter, a wājib kifā’ī (collective obligation) that the ummah sins by abandoning. It is a forgotten obligation. The ummah has not tasted honor since they lost it. It is a dream that lives in the depths of every Muslim believer. It is a hope that flutters in the heart .."of every mujahid muwahhid (monotheist). It is the khilāfah (caliphate). It is the khilāfah – the abandoned obligation of the era.." 

And some poetry tossed in for good measure:

We took it forcibly at the point of a blade.
             We brought it back conquered and compelled.
We established it in defiance of many.
             And the people’s necks were violently struck,
With bombings, explosions, and destruction,
             And soldiers that do not see hardship as being difficult,
And lions that are thirsty in battle,
             Having greedily drunk the blood of kufr.
Our khilāfah has indeed returned with certainty
             And likewise our state, becoming a firm structure.
And the breasts of the believers have been healed,
             While the hearts of kufr have been filled with terror.
