Claims that the atrocities of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have nothing to do with Islam are harming efforts to confront and combat extremism, the Archbishop of Canterbury has insisted.
Religious leaders of all varieties must stand up and take responsibility for the actions of extremists who profess to follow their faith, the Most Rev Justin Welby said.
He argued that unless people recognise and attempt to understand the motivation of terrorists they will never be able to combat their ideology effectively.
It follows calls from a series of high profile figures for people to avoid using the term Islamic State also known as Isil, Isis and Daesh because, they say, its murderous tactics go against Islamic teaching and that using the name could help legitimise the groups own propaganda.

Sounds like they're doubling down on idiocy
Get off yer high horse, Bishop.

Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis ISIS-affiliated extremist group in Egypt has released images purporting to show the execution of a 100-year-old cleric.
“Go against Islamic teaching”?
This is a pleasant suprise - this churchman is calling out Islam on its crimes and asking Muslims to take responsibility.
Good for him.
