Da'esh seeks to impose conduct, and something that is not Islam.

There is not one Islam. Of the more than one billion followers of the religion there is a broad spectrum of belief and practice. This ranges from the radicals for whom the words of the Quran, Hadith and legal texts are to be taken literally to the liberals or moderates who take a more rationalistic approach to the writings. They accept the texts were relevant at a particular point in past history, but Islamic societies have moved on and so they are no longer relevant today. There is also a relatively recent but growing group who believe that traditional Islam is out of step with the modern world and is in need of reform. They refer to themselves as reformist and/or secular Muslims.
