well as you read the title . an image of an angry thick bearded man shouting came through your heads !!
well am not i am just a liberal (tolerant) 17 years old Arabic boy who will tell you something you didn't know and that is Jihad now first the word is Arabic not Muslim so be careful and in ( Arabic) it means simply a straggle so when you are at traffic trying to go to work you are(( jihading )) to go to work i know it not a real word but hear me now in Islam the word holy jihad means the holy straggle !! yep it does not means at any how A HOLY WAR in fact there is no such thing as an holy war in Islam .. yea really .!!

and the holy struggle is an act of goodness on your behalf in the name of God so when you pray to Jesus that a holy jihad and when you cry at the wall or what ever you guys do (with all due respect ofcourse ) you're at the state of jihad when you see kids beating up another kid and you stop them that also is a jihad

now some of you may say "yea well you are just saying that becouse you live in the US or europe or what ever " but sorry i've never been there i live in arabia with arabs !! yea what a shock , and i've never been to the states or the .E.U and i dont any visa or anything so thanks and BTW guys Freedom of religon do you know what that means ?
