"This Is a Victory For Our Entire Community and a Much Needed Shift on How We Talk About Islam in Canada"

The Toronto Muslims website congratulates NCCM (the entity formerly known as CAIR-CAN) for persuading The Toronto Star to refer to "ISIS" as "DAESH." (I can see how/why a MuBros-linked body would take comfort in the change--i.e. because it removes the "Islamic" from the Islamic State. However, since DAESH sounds way scarier in a James Bondian sort of way--i.e. like "SPECTRE" or "SMERSH"--I'm not entirely certain that it is a victory.)
