I'm going to have to side with the Republicans on this one though, folks. ISIS is easier to say, and it refers to the names of countries with which we're all familiar. Levant is obscure and pretentious. The President needs to come down off his high horse and stop using a reference with which few people are familiar. Every time he says it, the name sounds wrong as if he misread the teleprompter. Even the media seems content to call them ISIS.
In conclusion, I would have to say if I was Muslim I would be extremely upset that anyone is referring to this group as Islamic. Why not just refer to them as what they really are ? Seepage of Humanity., or the SOH. This effectively refers to their true nature; an oozing slow moving foul smelling drip, IE "sourced" from the worst that humanity has to offer. It also effectively refers to their bodies after our bombs fall and what remains of them puddles into a ball of goo on the desert sand. SOH long dogs !
SOH it is... In My Humble Opinion.....
