When the Internet comes together for a common cause, the results can be astounding. Such was the case when ISIS put out a call for Muslims to rise up against Western infidels. The relevant tweetstorm continues; but the madness started on Sunday evening when ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi sent out a recruitment call through an audio recording. Arab Spring activist Iyad El-Baghdadi swiftly translated the recording. He then posted a series of tweets, which revealed how al-Baghdadi urged Muslims to rise together and defend the Islamic state.

El-Baghdadi joined in the fun, too, because Twitter can be infectious.

Fortunately, a kind person created this handy infographic for El-Baghdadi, so no one should ever confuse him with al-Baghdadi again.
