    Sounds like they've tried to mimic what happened in Paris..... Thankfully not pulling it off to the same efficiency.

    Using ISIS is bad enough because there is already many people, items, and abbreviations that use it and now it is being shortened to "is".

    edit: spelling

    There's a lot of variations.......

    Islamic State is the english name the group go by (hence IS)
    Isis something along the lines of Islamic State of Syria
    Isil is something along the lines of the Islamic state of the levant

    But I'm not really up for referring to them by the arabic name - Al-Dawla Al-Islamiya fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham
