    The acronym for the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service is ISIS.

    Is this the reason that Obama always says ISIL?

    It's also an anagram of Icelandic Schools Inspection Service.

    I think it's because he's afraid of offending the Institute for Science and International Security.

    You got it all wrong. It's because he secretly worships the ancient Egyptian gods. He's not a muslim, after all.

    Then why Sh76?

    Why does he prefer ISIL to ISIS? It would be nice if a reporter would ask this question, but that cannot happen because this is the USA and Presidents should not be asked questions like that when Obama is trying to come up with a strategy.
    BTW, how can someone say they are bombing people without a strategy? Obama isn't that stupid. He must be saying that so people will criticize him and feel he has to go along with the majority of Americans who are outraged by those videos that don't show beheadings but think they do.

    Have you seen a video of the beheadings Sh76?

    Have you seen the video of the alleged beheadings, Ezak?

    Please be honest. You know I will know if you are honest or not.

    Then why? Sarcasm aside, why would he avoid saying ISIS?

    No, I haven't. I have also never seen you take an alleged dump.

    ISIS stands for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

    ISIL stands for Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

    Since the goal of the group is to expand it's influence beyond just Iraq and Syria, ISIL is arguably more accurate.

    I heard no actual beheading is shown on the videos of the 2 journalists. What is shown is not consistent with reality. Very little blood and a limp body of Foley.

    I can't find the video online, can you?

    I didn't look for it. I did try to find a video of you taking a dump, but could not find it.

    You would have a better chance of finding a video of me taking a dump than a beheading of the 2 journalists since it does not exist.

    Perhaps Kazet is right and he has some sympathy for the ancient religion of Egypt. Were I in his shoes I would not wish to dignify that organisation with the name of a Goddess. ISIL is a perfectly reasonable name to call them by. I don't understand your problem with it. You are looking at details hoping to understand the wider picture when what you need to do is to look at the wider picture.
