Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi fends off challenges for jihad leadership
Lebanon -- A new jihadist is emerging in northern Syria, commanding
the battle for Aleppo. He is not Syrian but from Saudi Arabia, groomed
at the hands of a Salafist cleric from al-Qaida who mentored one of the
9/11 hijackers. Abdullah al-Muhaysini is the supreme judge of Jaysh
al-Fateh (Army of Conquest), the Islamic militia that has controlled the
city of Idlib in northwestern Syria since 2015. He is challenging
well-established Syrian jihadists such as Abu Mohammad al-Jolani of
Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (Conquest of Syria Front) and, perhaps, even Abu
Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed Iraqi caliph of the Islamic State,
for leadership of the jihadist cause. All three share the goal

planned TurkStream gas pipeline to pump Russian gas under the Black Sea
to Europe in speeches to an energy congress.

In Coastal Libya, Islamic State Prepared To Build A Nation
first page of Abu Bakr’s notebook contains Arabic translations of basic
English words. As Islamic State tightened its grip on this
Mediterranean city last year, closing schools and restricting social
life, it trained hundreds of recruits, many of them foreigners, in the
Arabic language, Islam and warfare to help extend its self-declared
caliphate to Europe’s doorstep, according to documents recently
discovered in the group’s offices here. The notebook of the fighter who
took the name Abu Bakr was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal along
with some 150 other documents left behind by militants who fled or were
killed or captured in battle as Libyan militias backed by U.S.
airstrikes moved in recent months to reclaim the city. The Islamic State
militants were under threat on Monday of being routed in the last
neighborhood they still control in the coastal city, the group’s last
major bastion in the Mediterranean country.
