Baghdadi's Claim of Descendancy from Muhammad

Nadene Goldfoot                                           

Update 11/10/14 News on CNN announced that Baghdadi had either been killed or injured in the latest round of attacks from the coalition today.  Another man was also killed who could have been one close to his command.  
Information on al Jazeera's American website says that "Bagdadi, 43 years old,  is a native Iraqi, born Ibrahim al-Samarrai some 50 miles north of Baghdad in the city of Samarra in the city of Samarra in Salahuddin province in the north of Iraq in 1971 ." "His full name is Ibrahim bin Awad bin Ibrahim bin Ali bin Mohammed Al-Badri Al-Qurashi Al-Hashimi Al-Husseini.  He is Al-Samarai by birth and upbringing, "  He used Al-Baghdadi as a student and a resident.  " Baghdadi claims to trace his lineage to the Prophet Muhammad, giving him added legitimacy as a religious leader."   What he practices as a religion are acts that go against Islam.  In his twisted mind he has dubbed his caliphate "IS for Islamic State, giving Islam a very bad name connected to beheading and slaughtering of innocent children, women, civilians, Shi'as and even Sunnis. This man is worse than Saddam Hussein ever thought of being, and he was one of the worst of his era.  

Without proper DNA testing, anyone can make such a claim.  He needs to have evidence  that needs to be checked thoroughly, especially the date of the test.  I would not put it past him to offer a million dollars to any DNA company for papers to prove such a claim with the threat of off with  your head if you don't come through.  In fact, he should do the test over again with a different company with accompanying guarding to make sure it is accurate.  

Even so, I doubt very much if any real descendants would swear loyalty to such a demon as Baghdadi has become.  A man may be armed with the right credentials but be as mad as a hatter.  Would anyone follow Caligula knowing how insane he was and what his horrendous deeds had been?  

This man is most dangerous as he is intelligent.  "He has a Master’s degree and PhD in Islamic Studies (poetry, history, genealogy,…) at the Islamic University of Baghdad and was a ...Professor and Preacher on these matters."    The Americans had him once in prison.  ""Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim Al Badry, also known as ‘Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’ was held as a ‘civilian internee’ by U.S. Forces-Iraq from early February 2004 until early December 2004, when he was released," the Pentagon said in a statement. "He was held at Camp Bucca.

His father is sheikh Awad and is from the Al-Bu'Badri tribe.  His grandfather was Haj Ibrahim Ali Al-Badri and died a few years ago at age 94.
