Here is an explanation of the difference between the terms ISIS and ISIL.


I have been curious about the term ISIL and exactly what it means.


ISIS = Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Iraq is to the east of Jordan (shaped like the hatchet) and Syria is to the north. 


ISIL = Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Iraq is still to the east of Jordan, and “the Levant” is a term that comes from “the rising (of the sun, i.e., to the east)” – and is basically the land along the Mediterranean – that includes Lebanon, Israel, and those countries along there.


By saying ISIL, you “negate” Israel as its own country and lump it in with the rest of the countries along the Mediterranean – and Israel sort of disappears (loses its sovereignty) and becomes part of “the Levant ” – which is therefore part of ISIL. 


If you’ve wondered, as I have, why all government agencies and especially Obama calls it ISIL and even spells it out every time it’s used, instead of ISIS as the rest of the world here’s the answer. 


Decoding Obama’s speech reveals some startling revelations. 

In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL, instead of their former name ISIS, or current name Islamic State. 


Have you ever wondered about that? Here is the difference: 

What makes up the near exact center of  the Muslim Levant ?  Israel. 

ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. 


Now, to us Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we? 


No, honestly from our perspective it’s all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? 

Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look. 


The geographical term LEVANT refers to amulti-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. 

If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess! 


It’s Israel. 

****When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East, that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State. 


Now you know why Obama says that he has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS.



Listen as Obama and his press secretary and the spokesperson for the State Department and his Joint Chiefs of Staff painstakingly spells out the letters I-S-I-L so there is no doubt in your mind.


And it’s working.


The Islamic State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of weapons, and in their latest foray have captured Syrian fighter jets and now 12 commercial passenger planes. 

With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing nothing, the Islamic State grows by leaps and bounds. The ultimate goal, of course, has not changed and will never change. 

The ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel.


Now you know a little bit more about why Obama chooses his words so carefully. 


“A Jew who votes for Obama is like a chicken who votes for Col. Sanders.”

  1. It matters not what they call themselves. The truth- and fact- is that this “group”, which I personally believe is just a front not only for multiple terrorist organizations but for multiple countries as well, has just a few purposes that they will stop at nothing to achieve. 1) Do whatever is needed to spread Islam across the world- and convert as many as possible. 2) Their leader- guide- prophet- must NEVER be disrespected in ANY way- and they are the only ones who can dictate what an insult is. 3) Anyone who will not convert- which is called an “Infidel”- must be killed. Preferably in public and preferably by Beheading. 4) Eliminate Israel by any means possible.
    NOW- if you look at this “Religion”, and take away the “Islam” part, you have the textbook definition of a Cult. And they thrive on creating fear and Terror, hence the name Terrorist. I was born in the United States of America, by citizens of the United States of America. By that alone, I have THE RIGHT to think and say what I want. I refuse to live in fear of what a Muslim- or any other type of person- might feel because of what I say. and if they are so intent on fighting to the death because I called their prophet what he really was- a liar, thief, murderer, pedophile, conquerer, self imposed moron with a God Complex, and basically a child in desperate need of a good butt whooping- if they really are willing to kill because of the truth (Or to them massive insults) then I will happily oblige. I do not fear them and refuse to live in fear because of them. SO TELL ME EVERYBODY- AND FOR ONCE REPLY ON THIS WEBSITE- ARE YOU GOING TO LIVE IN FEAR OF THEM-OF OUR GOVERNMENT RUN BY ONE OF THEM- OF WHOLE CITIES IN THIS COUNTRY RUN BY THEM? Or is it time to be AMERICANS and kick their sorry as*es out?

  2. Very well said my friend. VERY well said.
