In essence, a Caliph is the successor to the prophet Mohamed and must be recognized by the majority of the Moslem world. Those Moslem countries that don't immediately recognize the new Caliphate will eventually be forced to do so in time, either by persuasion or by force.
The moslem countries that recognize the Caliphate and the citizens within will then be obligated to follow the rulings of the new Caliph (president of the Moslem people so to speak).

Considering the extremist view of the goals of a caliphate being the annihilation of Israel. I think the likelihood of it happening may be supported by "The US has vetoed an Arab resolution at the UN Security Council condemning Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories as an obstacle to peace. All 14 other members of the Security Council backed the resolution, which had been endorsed by the Palestine Liberation Organization." 14 willing to condemn Israeli stances possibly showing a willingness to agitate them...which could spark who knows what. Continued unrest spreads chaos......and although democracy be the goal history shows us those who start revolutions are seldom there at the end, in power. Sorry to post so much on your thread but this is an area of growing concern for me as I can see this having global ramifications in a direction I don't really wanna go. Maybe your thread can get people talking about the things that aren't being said on the news!
