I've called these terrorist bastards ISIS, or sometimes Islamic State, and then of course ISIL too, but they really hate being called Daesh?

I am not buying the Obama Administration explanations (this is way more revealing about Obama Administration than trying to effectively communicate to our enemies). But if ISIS hates being called  Daesh, I have no problem calling them Daesh.

This is what DAESH stands for as an acronym. It makes sense if you speak and read Arabic.

I would just assume seeing these terrorists all D-E-A-D

Some are not actual terrorists, they just sympathize with them…

BTW they hate these terms too.  These are linguistic weapons of mass destruction in most conversations with Arab speakers, so use them sparingly on directed appropriate targets. The one about mother's lady parts is especially offensive.
