Statement of Shaykh Abdullah Ibn Abdur-Raheem al-Bukhari:
[Q]: This questioner says: There is an American graduate from the Islamic University who claims that the Scholars do not give importance and they do not pay attention to the problems of the Muslims in other lands. He says that these problems, due to which the Muslims have become distressed, do not prevent the Scholars from drinking tea and eating dates, and these problems do not disturb their rest and sleep. So they are not overly concerned with these issues. What is your view on this statement? The questioner says: What is your view on this statement?

Questioner: May Allah show goodness towards you; There has been an abundant of criticism on what has been known as Daesh, and all praises belong to Allah. However, the problem is that the majority of people in this time do not know their origin and they do not know their sources, and who they separated from. Rather, you find some who attribute them, meaning those who bomb and blow up things, they attribute to them that they are merely youth, or that they have (peer) pressure (from others), or it is because of unemployment, or magic (has been placed on them), and they say other than that, so what do you advise regarding this, may Allah preserve you.
Answer: Daesh, and what will make you know who are Daesh?! Daesh is an acronym. Some say (the acronym) is like the language of engraving, just as the ant engraves within a seed until it becomes hollow and empty. So this is the language of engraving. Daesh named themselves, and they formed for themselves this acronym, this abbreviated nickname, and it befits them. They call themselves al Dawlah al Islamiyyah Fi al Iraq wa Sham (i.e. Islamic State in Iraq and Sham). So they took the letter Daal د from the word al-Dawlah, and the letter Alif after the Daal, دا stands for Islamiyyah, and the letter Ain داع stands for Iraq , and the letter Sheen stands for Sham. So it was called as an acronym داعش Daesh, meaning al-Dawlah al-Islamiyyah Fi al-Iraq wa Sham; but they have absolutely nothing to do with Islam, and Islam is free from them.

[Q]: May Allaah bestow favours upon you. The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) has been insulted repeatedly in recent times by way of films and in newspapers and other than those media.

And following on from that, he says: And what is the ruling on expressing anger at the insults against the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) by way of protests and demonstrations?
