What is the difference between the ISIS and the ISIL?

Same organization, just two ways to list the acronym. Both are currently being used by media. Heck, Hillary refers to them as Al Qeada, while some of the media claims they were kicked out of Al Qeada. Hillary is trying to sow confusion as usual to cover her culpability. Does not matter which Syrian Rebel force she is accused of supplying aid too, Al Qeada or ISIL or whatever, the bottom line is any Syrian Rebel force fought against Assad and that weakened him and hampered him in his fight against ISIL/ISIS.

Same thing. They’re Arabic, remember, so the correct term doesn’t even use our alphabet. That said, the “L” stands for something few Americans understand, while the “S” stands for Syria - which most can relate to. Also kinda like “Saddam”, “Osama”, etc names which really have a range of acceptable English spelling approximations. We barely know who this gang is, and are still working on labeling them.
