Caliphate Passport To Be Issued By ISIS

After recently declaring a caliphate, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is allegedly planning to issue passports to those living within the confines of the caliphate.

The "State of the Islamic Caliphate” appears to be inscribed at the top of the purported passport. At the bottom, it says: “The holder of the passport if harmed we will deploy armies for his service.”

ISIS reportedly said the new document will be distributed to 11,000 citizens living in cities bordering Iraq and Syria.

The militant group, which operates in both Iraq and Syria, said their caliphate would spread from Aleppo in northern Syria to Diyala in eastern Iraq.

The passport is reportedly being printed in a government facility in Mosul that was built in 2011.

The facility known as the “Identification and Passport Center” was scheduled by the Maliki’s government to start issuing new ID card next week, according to Iraqi media reports.
The leader of the caliphate, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has called on Muslims to immigrate to the Islamic State because it's "a duty." He's especially interested in Muslims who have skills:

 “judges and those who have military and managerial and service skills, and doctors and engineers in all fields.”
He also told the jihadists fighting in Syria and Iraq:

“Terrify the enemies of Allah and seek death in the places where you expect to find it. "“Your brothers, on every piece of this earth, are waiting for you to rescue them.”
