I wonder why you avoided the better slang term (in the US) for jerks that try to impose their will on others: Douchebag or just douche. Sounds a lot like the arabic daish and is anything but complementary. Thanks for the excellent article.

Can't figure out how to pronounce "Daesh"? Just call them Douche.
