Our dear hamid al-tablighee wrote this little gem

I hope you are not confusing Jihad with terrorism.

One word: Bogus. The word Jihad means holy war period. Your claim is bogus. Shame on you for being and you must pardon me either ignorant or not telling us the truth so which one is it?

In Islam Jihad means " fight for a right cause',

Bogus again. Your Arabian allah says: "qatil fi sabeel Allah" he does not say: "qatil li sabab sahih" and let me guess could it be so your Allah can get 1/5 of the loot collected by Muslims like you?

Fighting against own bad deeds is also Jihad.

Bogus. The word here is IJTIHAD and not Jihad

Terrorism is by no means is Jihad.

So what is really jihad if it is not terrorism?

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.

Islamic drivel

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.
