I blow my nose at you

"I wish the BBC would stop calling it 'Islamic State' because it is not an Islamic state,” David Cameron complained to on the BBC's Today programme. "'So-called' or Isil is better,” he added.

I don't know much about counter-terrorism strategy, but I'd hazard a guess that members of the self-appointed Caliphate and its potential recruits aren't going to be discouraged by BBC newsreaders taunting them with the phrase "so-called."

But I may be wrong - after all, it worked for those French knights:
Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called "Arthur King," you and all your silly English K-nig-hts.
