Don't Look Now But Boko Haram Just Declared a New Caliphate, Too

There is no word if this is the same Caliphate that ISIS has established in the Middle East or another competitor for the title. The Boko Haram jihadists in Nigeria have declared a new religious state in West Africa.

The group that kidnapped hundreds of children recently has also massacred over 10,000 people over the last five years.

Boko Haram, which means "Western education is forbidden" relayed a threat to the United States and the world:

"Who is America in the sight of Allah? .... We don't fear you at all. .... We were the ones who carried out all these attacks. Not just Gwoza, all the attacks you see in Borno or any country we are the ones carrying them out. This is the life for us; it is our world and we are living it out.... This is the speech I have to make; which is a warning for worse things to come. Better submit to Allah before it becomes too late."

They also showed ISIS-like barbarity:

At the end of the video, Boko Haram includes gruesome footage showing approximately 20 men in civilian clothes lying on their stomachs with their hands tied behind their backs being executed by gunfire at close range. Two other men are beaten to death with shovels after they allegedly tried to escape dressed as women.
