Dear AnnM,

I hope you are not confusing Jihad with terrorism. In Islam Jihad means " fight for a right cause', Fighting against own bad deeds is also Jihad.

Terrorism is by no means is Jihad. Killing innocent people is not Jihad. No muslim can do that. Quran says killing one innocent person is like killing whole of the humanity and saving one life is like saving whole of the humanity.

As majority of christians are not following their religion. So as many muslims are not following their religion. In revenge and injustice caused by Europe and USA they get involved in terrorism which is not supported by any muslim cleric, and neither me a muslim.
