Conferring the term "Islamic State" to ISIS terrorist group is a fatal error

It is a blatant mistake to designate a terrorist group like ISIS as the Islamic state because it violates all the Islamic values, the higher objectives of Islamic law as well as universal values shared by all mankind. Bloodthirsty extremist groups are a danger to Islam and Muslims and distort its image. They shed blood and spread corruption on earth, weakening nations and giving the opportunity to others to destroy us and intervene in our affairs under the pretext of combating terrorism.
