“ISIL claims to be fighting on behalf of Islam but the fact is that its hateful ideology has nothing do with Islam.” How did this happen?

“Kerry: ‘ISIL’s hateful ideology has NOTHING to do with Islam,'” The Right Scoop, September 10, 2014 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):
Kerry gave a short press conference this morning where he said that despite ISIS claiming to fight on behalf of Islam, ISIL’s hateful ideology has nothing to do with Islam:
ISIL claims to be fighting on behalf of Islam but the fact is that it’s [sic] hateful ideology has nothing do with Islam. ISIL a manifestation of evil, a vicious terrorist organization and it is an organization that achieves its goals only through violence, repression, and destruction. Fed by illicit funding and a stream of foreign fighters, it has seized territory and terrorized the people who live there regardless of their sect or ethnicity. There is literally no place for their barbarity in the modern world.
