Reader comment on item: What is Jihad?

Submitted by nurjahan maryam (United States), Feb 3, 2004 at 04:56

It amazes me how people can take the actions of a few and make it the norm for the rest, I myself am a american born woman who became muslim a year before 9/11, i know that people think that's how we think, that anyone claiming to be muslim is a terrrorist , but if you want to find the most horrible things done to a person in the name of God, then you need to study about the inquistion held by the catholic religion in the 14 century. Even today so-called christians that head such groups as the KKK, that will kill some one just because they look different then themselves.

as far as jihad there are a lot of struggles that muslim goes through each and every day,and as woman born being taught one but shown another, Islam as saved my life in every sence of the word. I don't agree with the murder of innocent people, but before you can pass jugement and convect you must first know your subject
