Young British Muslims tell the Islamic State: #NotInMyName

There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State. 

As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion. 

So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”

Embroidered Photo Family Portrait | The Glamourous Housewife
This might be one of my favourite craft projects of the year! It’s such a sweet and crafty way to share memories and really gives photos of those you love an extra dimension. And because the photos are in black and white it gives them a cohesive look, which can be hard with some pics when you might not have the world’s best photography skills! This would make a really beautiful gift, and would be a great way to add photos to a baby’s room without the worry of glass photo frames.

When you’re at the pool lounging on a beach chair and some little kids are running and the lifeguard screams out “no running” do you respond “excuse me, not all of us are running”? No, you don’t. The lifeguard didn’t have to specifically state who they were talking to because you’re intelligent enough to comprehend that the comment wasn’t being directed at you.

Found a quote that shuts down that “not all men” argument pretty well. (via mykicks)
