The Islamic State has admitted as much by rejoicing at his death:
He was, rather, a general of a recognized nation. All the self-styled conservatives who are calling him a ‘terrorist’ need to be careful to call things what they really are (a terrorist is generally defined as a non-state actor).

Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!
Anathema to the Union!
