“DAISH” is an Arabic abbreviation for the name of the terrorist organization ISIL: “al-Daula al-Islamia fi al-Iraq v al-Sham”.
This definition is also used by Assyrian Christians who are at war with the Islamists. In everyday life it is also in the Western intelligence services.
Why is DAISH an offensive name for terrorists? This was attempted to explain the newspaper Boston Globe.
The publication writes: "Depending on how the expression is conjugated in Arabic, it can mean anything - from" trampling and crushing "to" obscurantist, imposing his opinion on others "".
Most likely, the latter definition does not suit the Islamists the most. Therefore, they threatened to cut off the language to anyone who allowed himself to use this abbreviation publicly.
