I don't think anyone actually know what a "Jihad" is.
A Jihad is a term used to describe a war of defence not aggression. In Islam they have rules about war, their religion says that they can use a Jihad to defend themself but they're not allowed to kill women, children and non-military people. That is why the civilian death toll is so low when they call for Jihad. They target military not civilians. It is the only war, they are permitted to battle.
I think that Westeners have misinterpreted it's meaning or don't even know it's meaning so i just wanted to explain it so that it's not used to refer to something it's not.
By your interpretation the"hijackers" obviously killed women,children and civilians.
