Reader comment on item: American Taxpayer Money Spent on Eradicating Hebrew-Language Street Signs

Jihad means: to strive, and has nothing to do with war. Also why when these extremist commit "crimes " do people always see the need to add their religion? Why when rapist anzd murderers are convicted do those same people not report on the incident by saying " a christian murderer " or a " Jewish rapist" ( no offence to Christians and Jews, just an e.g) ? Buy when a Muslim is involved, his/ hers religion is immaediately made to suffer the cosequences ? Also one should note the difference between religion and tradition ! Especially when criticising certain aspects of Islam that the western world does not understand. Religion should not be criticised for tradition ( which is mans doing) ways.
