There's nothing derogatory about using the term "Daesh"......it's simply the acronym for their full name.

DAESH derives from the Arabic name with which they refer to themselves, “al-Dawla al-Islamiya fi Iraq wa al-Sham.”

It's far more insulting to muslims generally to refer to them as ISLAMIC State.
IS would disagree with you. I saw a news post about the child who was lashed by IS for using this term about them too. Dusak is certainly not imagining or making it up.
I saw it too....but my point is that it's not derogatory, merely more accurate & descriptive.

Daesh want to portray themselves as islamic and will do what they can to encourage the use of this word (rather than their full name) amongst those they have subdued. Elsewhere they should be referred to as the barbarous butchers of Daesh.

If IS disagree....so much the better.

It was Who 2 wasn't it, not Dusak? Anyhow if DAESH is a derogatory term I'll start using it. If the 'locals' use it then that just goes to show what they think of them! If this, to quote BM's term, makes me a 'Muzzy hater' then so be it! The majority of Muslims, the world over, deplore terrorist organisations like Daesh not just for their undeniable brutality and oppression of local people but also because they bring their religion into disrepute. They shun the term Islamic State because Daesh do not represent any form of Islam that they want to be associated with. Neither do they like them being referred to as a 'State' because this term implies a legitimacy they do not have. They do not have a 'State', they just occupy territories within countries like Iraq, Syria and Libya which they have taken by force. Are Muslims who oppose groups like Daesh, Boko Haram, Al Shebab et al 'Muzzy haters' themselves? No, they just want to live in peace and preserve the integrity of their religion.

And whilst we are talking about 'derogatory' terms, I would venture to suggest that some Muslims may find the term 'Muzzy' offensive!

Many people people here call them Daesh and I understood also that it was an abreviation of their name in Arabic.
