Picking up were past Islamic phalanxes left off.

Al Qaeda expanding to India to ‘wage jihad’ and ‘liberate its land’
Al Qaeda terrorists say they’re expanding operations, and will soon open a new branch in India “to liberate its land,” they said.
In a video, al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri said his group’s mission is to “wage jihad against its enemies, to liberate its land, to restore its sovereignty and to revive its caliphate,” CNN reported.
Mr. Al-Zawahiri also announced he will try and gather support “for the vulnerable” in Myanmar and Bangladesh and in other regions that are subjected to territorial disputes between India and Pakistan. He called for a widespread “rescue” of residents in India from what he described was “injustice, oppression, persecution and suffering,” CNNreported.
Intel insiders say al Qaeda is struggling to keep followers in the face of the Islamic State’s growing support.
