  14. Greg Kaye says:

    The shitting, non representational BBC still banner headlining the terrorists self presentation as "Islamic State".  The majority of the people they interview use ISIS, ISIL and Daesh and yet they defy representation of sources so as to use the politically loaded designation of a  questionably yet self proclaimed "Islamic" group that is fighting predominantly Islamic oppositions.  

    In the video presented here the BBC editorialises to add to subtitling with "blown up by retreating IS fighters" in a situation in which the interviewee was silent and when, in other situations, the Iraqis typically use "daesh", the equivalent of ISIS.  No interviewee should ever trust the shitting BBC.

    This is a group that which enacts such clearly un-Islamic practices as the killing of aid workers and whose actions do not represent any form of Jihad (a defensive doctrine related centrally to spirituality).  Despite all this the BBC has chosen to nonsensically adopt the groups chosen and very one sided use of terminology.  It beggars belief.    The BBC news should better follow the example of newspapers like the Independent who make continual reference to the recognized name as ISIS.  It would be better for them to be franchised out and put under a more efficient and representative management such as of Channel Four.

  15. Chris Kyle and his men would spray paint the "punisher" symbol on their stuff…. Some of these Iraqis do the same.
