“The Afghan Taliban released a statement today from Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour, the ‘deputy leader of the Islamic Emirate [of Afghanistan] and acting head of the Leadership Council,’ to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the emir of the Islamic State, that demanded the Islamic State fight under the Taliban’s banner in Afghanistan and end divisions amongst jihadists throughout the world. In the process, Mansour praised al Qaeda as an integral part of the global jihad.”
