From The Fellowship of Isis - To All Members of the Press

The Fellowship of Isis is a network of some 26,000 members worldwide. We are a multi-faith organisation dedicated to the feminine aspect in all religions, and have a priesthood whose manifesto is one of peace, tolerance and respect for all spiritual expression.

It is disturbing and confusing to our members and the general public who know of our organisation when media use the acronym ISIS for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant militia. The alternative rendering of ISIL, ‘... Iraq and the Levant’ would avoid any misunderstanding on this matter.

The use of the acronym ‘ISIS’ is also misleading and potentially defamatory.

We respectfully request that your organization from this point forward refer to this group by its other accepted name, ISIL, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, and require that your correspondents and guests do the same.
