I'd like to say one thing.
As a REAL Muslim (not a MSM creation, a "radical" misrepresentation, or a lover of violence period), it kills me that of all places on the internet,
people are on ATS using the word Jihad like they really know what it means. 30 second lesson, and I would know, I've been Muslim for 19 years, Jihad
means struggle, not "holy war", not even "war", just struggle. If you heard from a Muslim that Jihad means "holy war" he/she was either grossly
misinformed, brainwashed, or just stupid. If you heard that Jihad is the duty of Muslim, that's true, however further detail on that explains that
Jihad is the struggle against the negative parts of oneself or ones ego. What constitutes a so called "holy war" are circumstances which myself, and
the MAJORITY of other Muslims do not see anywhere in the near future. Our version of a "holy war" is the same as that of the Jews and the
Christians, it's that against the forces of evil.
