Names have power.

They want us to call them ISIS, or the Islamic State. But they are not Islamic, nor a state. Arabs call them Daesh, an acronym of their Arabic name, and they hate it because it sounds like daes “one who crushes things underfoot”, or dahes “one who sows discord”.

This is their true name.

The French government has changed its official name for the group; Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said “I will be calling them the ‘Daesh cutthroats’.”

Let’s follow this example. Stop flattering them by calling them ISIS. Spite them by calling them Daesh, and help stop the division between Western and Middle East. Our battle is not with Arabs or Muslims, but with bigots who sow discord and crush others underfoot: Daesh.

Edit: for those of you sharing this, here is a better explanation of just what it is that makes Daesh so angry. It’s belittling to them.
