The abstract of this article is really different.LAST SPRING, the faculty of Harvard College se- lected a graduating senior named Zayed Yasin to deliver a speech at the university's com- mencement exercises in June. When the title of the speech-"My American Jihad"-was announced, it quite naturally aroused questions. Why, it was asked, should Harvard wish to promote the con- cept of jihad-or "holy war"-just months after thousands of Americans had lost their lives to a jihad carried out by nineteen suicide hijackers act- ing in the name of Islam? Yasin, a past president of the Harvard Islamic Society, had a ready answer.
