    The latest styles and trends that explode on the scene. Don't lose your head and wear last year's outfits. Get off the Chang Street stop on the bullet train, make a right and we are 300m down the street.

    A shop owner in Shenzhen, south China, was forced to rebrand after receiving endless phone calls about her business 'ISIS'.

    The entrepreneur, named as Chen Hong, claims that she hadn't heard of ISIS when she established her brand. However, when photographs of her shop surfaced online, she received a lot of negative publicity and harassment.

    Police investigation into the shop owner revealed that she had no connection to terror group ISIS, reported People's Daily Online.

    Local police issued an official statement on November 18 confirming a clothing shop that was branded ISIS had indeed been in their jurisdiction.

    It read: 'A clothing shop in our jurisdiction, at 105 Long Chang Street, has signage and branding that said ISIS.

    'Our branch director Sun Weiping took the matter very seriously when he was alerted to the situation. He immediately took a team to the shop to investigate.

    'The shop owner has already removed the signage herself at 14.00 hours today.'

    Investigators also brought the shop owner back to the police for further questioning.

    Police have identified the woman as Chen Hong, 35, from Guangdong, south China.

    The ISIS branding is intended to mean 'Yisi Yisi', or a gesture of goodwill.

    She was not found to have any connections with the terror group of the same name. However, the police have promised to actively follow up on the situation and has asked for anyone with additional information to come forward.

    Chen Hong has revealed to reporters that she did not know of ISIS when she branded the business three years ago.

    The brand is supposed to stock high-end clothing for women and has no connection with the terror group.

    At present, Chen Hong is not sure what her new brand will be.

    China declared war on ISIS last week after four Chinese citizens were killed by the terror group.

    One of the men killed was held as a hostage by ISIS while three others died during the hotel attacks in Mali last week.



    The topic is closely followed by Chinese citizens.

    (CNN) — What’s in a name? Apparently a lot of expensive headaches.

    Isis Books & Gifts in Denver has the misfortune of sharing its name with the terrorist group.

    Over the weekend, someone threw a brick through the sign outside the business. It’s the fourth time in recent months someone has vandalized the bookstore.

    “We’re all very heartbroken (about the Paris attacks) so I don’t know if somebody walking down the street just saw our name on the sign and kind of lost it for a moment and threw a rock through it,” Karen Charboneau-Harrison, the store owner, told CNN affiliate KDVR. “Or if it was an ignorant person who actually thought this was a bookstore for terrorists, I don’t know.”

    Isis Books & Gifts takes its name from the Egyptian goddess of childbirth and healing. It’s a spiritual store that has been in business 35 years and embraces many faiths.

    What possible reason would any civilized person have for going to So China? You want to witness the military posturing and shellings first hand?

    Although the owners are more likely to leave a horses head in your bed than burn you alive in a cage or fuck little boys in their bottoms.

    In those countries Hitler is a pop culture icon. It's really bizarre. Most of the people who live there are well educated. I'm sure they teach world history in school. India was under British rule, they are very aware of WWII.

    The Middle East has always called them "DAESH" because it's the equivalent of calling them scum trying to impose their will on others. The western media and people who just want to blame/hate all Muslims use"ISIS" which is what those assholes want to be called. So congratulations on giving into them and besmirching the goddess...and Archer, too.
