I was hoping this op would explain to me what ISIL and ISIS are supposed to stand for. I know about the ancient goddess ISIS. Is that who they are taking their namesake from and it doesn't stand for anything? What about ISIL? Is that just one word too? Why the all capital letters then?
I just think your thread would've had a lot more meaning to it and would have further served it's purpose if these questions had been addressed. What are the meaning of these two terms and why is one better or more accurate than the other? Why is there even a choice between 2 names for a terrorist/militant group? They should just have one name.

Of course it’s no big thing in a name but symbolism counts for something and I believe we should all honor what people hold sacred… Just a request.
Why, because the Holy name of the Goddess ISIS shouldn’t be tainted by these barbarians who are the farthest thing from Muslims ( ONE’S OF PEACE WHO SUBMIT TO GOD) imaginable.

But I doubt if its just a coincidence they are called ISIS, ISL, or ISIL or whatever. There is hidden religious symbolism & prophecies, someone is trying very hard to self fulfill and let others know.
