The thing that gets me about all the conversations Western leaders are having about ISIS is that they deny it is Islamic. I grew up in Dubai. I have many Muslim friends. None of them deny it is Islamic. They all acknowledge it is Islamic, just in a way they do not follow or adhere to.
But Western leaders, and the conversations surrounding ISIS, reflect the lack of religious conviction of those speaking rather than accurately depicting what ISIS is. I recommend this as your must read of the day. It breaks down the Islamic underpinnings of ISIS and is well worth a read.
