Isis, is it just another US buzzword?

The single most important factor in ISIS' recent resurgence is the conflict between Iraqi Shias and Iraqi Sunnis. ISIS fighters themselves are Sunnis, and the tension between the two groups is a powerful recruiting tool for ISIS.

Does this mean that Isis is just another name for the militant Sunnis, a new buzzword like al qaeda to revive the fading interest of the US public, to sell more newspapers, to attracts more sponsors?
