So just because Taheri-Azar did not succeed in killing anyone that disqualifies him as a jihadist? Well that perception is very incorrect. There are lots of Jihadists around the world who did not achieve their goals of killing christians and jews, but that does not make them second class jihadists.

Moussaoui was suppose to be the 20th highjacker, but he got caught. Does that make him crazy and not a terrorist? Of course not. He came to this country to murder people in the name of allah. Because he failed does not make him any less evil.

After the London bombings on 7/7, another group of terrorists tried to murder more innocent people but their bomb failed to detonate. These jihadists were caught and are being held. One of them said that he did not mean to kill anybody but just scare them. I'm sure the British got a laugh at that answer from him, I sure did. Now just because he didn't succeed does not mean he did not want to kill these people. He most certainly did. Therefore your analysis is flawed and incorrect.
