Cameron warns BBC: say ISIL!

World Bulletin / News Desk 

British Prime Minister David Cameron has criticized Monday the use of the term "Islamic State" by the BBC when referring to ISIL.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4, Cameron said he preferred the terms "so-called" or "ISIL".

"I wish the BBC would stop calling it 'Islamic State' because it is not an Islamic state," said Cameron in an interview, three days after the Tunisia attack.

"What it is is an appalling barbarous regime that is a perversion of the religion of Islam and many Muslims will recoil every time they hear the words," said the British prime minister.

Cameron said "so-called" could be used or "ISIL" (for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant).

In his remarks, stressing importance of fighting ISIL in every sense, Cameron said: "The fight against the barbaric terrorist organization [is] the struggle of our generation."

"We have to fight it with everything we can," said Cameron, adding that the strategy was to build local armies in fighting against the armed group.
