Radical Jordanian Cleric Says ISIS Caliphate is 'Void'

Radical Islamic cleric Abu Qatada, who is being tried on terror charges in Jordan, on Tuesday denounced as "void" the declaration of a caliphate by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).

"The announcement of a caliphate by the Islamic State is void and meaningless because it was not approved by jihadists in other parts of the world," Abu Qatada was quoted by AFP as having written in a 21-page document published on jihadist websites.
