A Sunni defends Baghdadi

Muhammad al-Bayûdh al-Tamîmî: Baghdadi follows Qur'an and Sunna. MEMRI, h/t Jihadwatch.

Now, "The Book of God and the Sunna of His Prophet" has two meanings. One is the text of the Scripture and the practice of Muslims in good standing. The other is a simple battle-cry, probably first heard at Ṣiffīn. (Crone and Hinds, God's Caliph.) So Tamîmî could be winking at his ultra-Islamic fan-club.

Let's not take sides on what Tamîmî meant. Either way - it's time Muslims had a debate about that. On what basis does this new self-styled Caliph of... we haven't been told yet... derive his right to abrogate classical Sunna?
