IS is actually a mis-nomer. It's got nothing to do with the fundamental principles of Islam, which are very close to Christianity, meaning a decent sense of morality.


Well.. no, not by modern definitions of morality. There are plenty of examples in the Old Testament with regard to it being okay to rape, enslave and execute your opposition. Thankfully the fundamentalist Christians around today aren't quite that fundamental.

Islamic state is Islamic though, just no reflection of modern day/accepted Islam. Much the same way as modern Christianity bears no resemblance to ancient Christianity.
