Awesome thread OP
I knew the truth long ago but it is extremely difficult to cut through western propaganda that demonizes
You are a good man for at least trying
CIA and Mossad and Saudis have been abusing and manipulating Muslims in Middle East since the 1960s
And British even before that

I believe in Jihad and submission to Allah and protecting that by force...
So do 99% of Muslims...
Because that's what Jihad is.
"No compulsion in faith"...
You know what that means?
"Let them believe what they choose, believe what you choose"...
Know what that means?
The tax is payed by Muslims as well...
It's called Zakat (charity) and anyone in Muslims lands has to pay it...
You pay your taxes to your government yes?
Imagine a Muslims saying "I'm not paying it"...
You call them a welfare scumbag!

I would like to Add that I am Salafi and I am on par with most of what OP shared .
But I also wanted to make note that these Khuaraij make claims of being salafi but they are not .
Real quick Bio , Born raised Christian , studied religion , found Islam , studied Islam for years , became salafi , Because its based off of FACT and Evidence of scripture and not bid'ah ( innovation of scripture ) . One can say it's the purest form of Islam .
You see the salafi trace everything back to the Shahaba and Muhammad (pbuh) we follow Islam how they followed . If it's not able to be traced back then it's questionable (in rearguard to hadith etc ) because over the years like many other religions Islam has become Infected with Innovation of scripture and culture tradition . so as a salaf we want to practice the purest form of Islam .
one can compare it to Orthodox Christianity vs west burrow . of course salafi being orthodoxy lol .
So long story short ! True Islam does not have all these extremes you see on MSM and the internet . Much of that comes from Innovation and culture tradition and influence .
anyway hope this helps !
P.S Op I still go fishing , hangout with friends , live life ! do fun things ! you name it i do it ! being salafi means siticking to the Quran and Sunna !
Salam alikume Akhi thanks for the post

So is there a written source, preferably muslim, that defines what consitutes this true Jihad...what you wrote...somehow seems to me like your own understanding of the term...and perhaps some of it is wishful thinking.
Back in school...we were told a simple definition...something like...holy war against the infidels. So...can you please point me to scolarly definition from a valid muslim source....i would appreciate it.

It's easy to take things out of context, use it to murder someone OR claim something/someone is violent.
The key lies in the context. Say for example, you told your child "If you eat that cookie, I'll eat you". Now, say your child told the school teacher that you said you would "eat your child". Sounds pretty frightening when taken out of context.
Verse 89 in Sura 4 was directed to the companions of the prophet from Allah/God against a disbelieving people who were hell-bent on destroying them.
An infidel is someone who persecutes Muslims or fights against Islam (tries to quash it) & tries to stop Muslims believing what we do...
So in that sense it's a Holy War against infidels...
An infidel is someone who persecutes Muslims
In Quranic context and infidel is always named as a persecutor or fighter against Muslims...
“…if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.” [Al-Qur’an 5:32]
