          ROOTS OF DAESH . Since last summer, when unexpectedly the world heard about the creation of the Caliphate- the rebirth of an Muslim world’s old institution which has disappeared with the last Ottoman sultan at the beginning of the Ataturk era in Turkey- in parts of Syria and Iraq, the question –what it is about ?- has tried to find a valid reply. We are not sending to the conspiratorial theories which are largely extended in the Mideast , but to serious and robust search of the beginning and the sudden appearance of Daesh ( known also as IS= Islamic State or ISIL ). Recently, such a  convincing reply to the legitimate question mentioned above  has been formulated  in an article published by the German ‘Der Spiegel’. The author of the article began the narrative presenting the circumstances of the death of an unknown person  under the bullets of a Syrian rebel group: “  In fact, not even those who shot and killed him after a brief firefight in the town of Tal Rifaat on a January morning in 2014 knew the true identity of the tall man in his late fifties. They were unaware that they had killed the strategic head of the group calling itself ‘Islamic State ‘ (IS). The fact that this could have happened at all was the result of a rare but fatal miscalculation by the brilliant planner. The local rebels placed the body into a refrigerator, in which they intended to bury him. Only later, when they realized how important the man was, did they lift his body out again.”  The man killed then was Samir Abd Muhammad al-Khlifawi, best known as Haji Bakr, a former colonel in the intelligence service of the  former Iraq’s dictator,  Saddam Hussein , who was mentioned several times in connection with the IS actions but whose fundamental role in the appearance of the Caliphate was till recently unknown. The rebels who killed searched the house where Haji Bakr was living and they captured a lot of documents which was revealing concerning the creation of the Daesh.  “ Der Spiegel”  discloses  that  “ For the first time, the Haji Bakr documents now make it possible to reach conclusions on how the IS leadership is organized and what role former officials in the government of ex-dictator Saddam Hussein play in it. Above all, however, they show how the takeover in northern Syria was planned, making the group's later advances into Iraq possible in the first place. In addition, months of research undertaken by SPIEGEL in Syria, as well as other newly discovered records, exclusive to SPIEGEL, show that Haji Bakr's instructions were carried out meticulously.”
