For those of you that do not know, the Jihad is a pillar of Islamic faith in which ALL Muslims believe in, not just some crazy group of extremists. The Jihad is the world take over by Muslims, enforcing Sharia Law in all corners of the globe and to FORCE all people to convert to Islam.
Muslims use the word in a religious context to refer to three types of struggles: an internal struggle to maintain faith, the struggle to improve the Muslim society, or the struggle to defend Islam.
A minority among the Sunni scholars sometimes refer to this duty as the sixth pillar of Islam, though it occupies no such official status.
In western societies the term jihad is often translated as "holy war".
muslim migration isn't irking me.. my parents immigrated to this country from Russia back in the 70's and were badly discriminated against for decades. Also like I pointed out I have Muslim friends.

Soldiers use God's name to keep them safe in battle, yet they're going out and killing his creations. These same religions will point to God's ten commandments, yet they go against the "I shall not kill" commandment. No where in that commandment does it say "I shall not kill but only in wars." Religions and governments justify war for their own gains and think God is backing them in battle.

The last time I checked in the book of Exodus the commandment was "Thou Shalt not Kill." Maybe the word "kill" was changed later to murder to justify killing in time of wars. Either way the word "kill" or "murder" is like splitting hairs, they both mean taking of human life.
There are several strong arguments for the case that the sixth commandment should be translated as "Thou shalt not murder." First, the verb used in the Torah commandment is "ratsah," which generally is translated as murder and refers only to criminal acts of killing a human being. The word "kill" generally refers to the taking of life for all classes of victims and for all reasons. This generalization is expressed through a different Hebrew verb "harag."
There’s another deadly trend obvious in England but making headway elsewhere in the West — the union of the left and radical Islam in the hate America campaign. The Townhall magazine article explains the seemingly strange but solid alliance between the left (including major segments of the Democratic Party) and radical Islam. To make the point the article quotes Michael Gove, a leading Conservative member of Parliament:
“The Left’s enemies are no longer primarily a system, capitalism and its agents such as big business. Instead the principal enemy is now the oppressive West and, in particular, The Great Satan, America and the Little Satan, Israel. The Crusaders and the Zionists … Antipathy towards America, like opposition to Israel, has become the touchstone of radical Left credibility.”
So America has to face the music and fight, as no matter what happens to Israel and other obstacles in the path to Muslim world domination, the final target has to be America. Like it or not, we are marked for subjugation and/or destruction.
If we are to win that war against radical Islam, we have to recognize we’re in a battle, which will not be won by retreat and appeasement. And we will not win if we do not believe in our own values and culture and if we do not try to end the hate-America, blame-America streak that is becoming all too common in our national life. Again, Mr. Gove struck a cord, also sounded by Mr. Steyn. He was speaking of the challenge facing Britain, but America and the rest of the West face the same challenge:
“Unless we retain the moral clarity to know that Western society, its freedoms and traditions, are worth celebrating, deserve to be emulated, and will benefit others by being adopted, then we will find them increasingly difficult to defend at a time of trial.”
Four days after his children were allegedly forced to watch him being burned alive as his wife was raped, a 38-year-old Pakistani Christian father, died March 23rd. Muslims in the Punjab province of Pakistan, including the man's employer of five years and three police officers, allegedly burned him alive for refusing to convert to Islam. The European news website BosNewLife reports that the government investigating the death of Arshed Masih, who received third-degree burns over 80% of his body in the attack.
Following the attack, which allegedly took place in front of a police station, Masih's wife Martha and two children, 7 and 12, were evicted from the servant's quarters by his employer, Sheikh Mohammed Sultan. Sultan, an influential businessman, had accused Masih of theft and then assured him that he would drop the charges if the family converted to Islam. Sultan had pressured the family to convert prior to the accusation. After the accusation, Masih's family says the Christian tried to resign and leave, but Sultan insisted that he convert, or that neither he nor his wife would see their children again.
Initially, it appeared that no investigation of the attacks was planned. Punjab's Federal Minister for Minorities had orginally said that Masih "burned himself," and refused to say more on the subject.
The ex-Muslim site faithfreedom.org has said that the torture death of Masih is the latest example of a Muslim practice originally practiced by Mohammed, in which those who refuse to convert are killed, and their goods used to enrich those of the faith.
