DMN What is your objection?

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Another victim of Arabian imperialism and Islam

DMN,

First, I apologize for reposting on an abbreviated version of my response. For some reason my earlier response did not post completely.

You provided the definition of Jihad in Arabic without translating it.

هو قتال من يجوز قتالهم ، والفعل جاهد يجاهد

The definition reads, "fighting whom it is permissible to fight."

This is the lesser Jihad I focused on since the other definitions are at best of secondary importance.

I do not think you or I should care about the individual acts of prayer and fasting of a Muslim.

Since we appear to be in agreement that the former of Jihad which concerns us is Jihad as warfare, what precisely is your objection to my earlier post?

Submitting....
