A comment on Ashraf's posting:

Jihad literally means effort. Though the Muslim apologists will have everyone believe that this is what the term Islamic Jihad implies, this is a gross understatement, because of the barbarity, brutality and bloody mindedness that Islamic jihad has come to represent in action.

Just consult the pages of history to find out how the Muslim warriors waged holy wars against Europe for 400 years to cut down half its population, how the Mujahedeen destroyed the Egyptian and Iranian cultures without the slightest provocation from these lands. India suffered terrible destruction from the Muslim booty hunters and is still called by them as " Dar ul Harb".

To get the true meaning of Jihad you have to study the methods Prophet Mohammed utilised to achieve his goals. ..
