Brutal jihadists are a stateless rabble of killers

AFTER the brutal murder of journalist James Foley I feel it is wrong for all media to be referring to these cowardly terrorists as being associated with a fictional country called "the Islamic State". There is no such place.

These people originate from many places, but are carrying out their atrocities in Syria and Iraq. Continuing to refer to the aforementioned fictional place only gives credence and encouragement to these barbarians to carry out their mindless slaughter.
