Our dear BERK the Turks that brutalized your Greek and Armenian and Syrian ancestors used such loan word from Arabic. Yes Arabic and the root in Arabic is GhZW

And here is your lesson for today:

1. The word Ghazi means in Arabic, and I suspect also in Turkish, he who invades or a mujahid or he who fights a holy war and nothing about being injured in war

2. The word ghazwa, in Arabic the language of your Arab masters, means (and i suspect also in Turkish) an invasion as in holy war aka al-jihad

So you see your claim is bogus
