Why does everyone but the politicians refer to the group as ISIS?
Obama himself continues to call them ISIL? Is there a reason for this? I read somewhere the ISIL includes Isreal, is that true?
Curious member here wanting to know.

My personal take is they screwed up and called them ISIS at first and then realized that no Islamic group would EVER name themselves after an Egyptian
goddess so then they tried to backpedal on the name. It's a trick no doubt. I don't buy this war on terror stuff anymore.
Who cares..? They are bunch of A-holes butchers from the hell supported by the US/Israel/France/UK etc., no matter what name they use for
identification nowadays. Must be uprooted from this planet asap.... no matter the cost.

Technically, their name is 'Islamic State', or IS.
The term ISIS comes from their previous English translation which stood for 'Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.' ISIL is a variant of the
aforementioned, which included the term 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.' Levant is another term used for the Eastern Mediterranean region.
