Reader comment on item: The Limits of Terrorism

Submitted by Anne-Marie Delcambre (France), Apr 24, 2009 at 11:28

We find jihad by terror and by open warfare but we find ALSO jihad by the pen , jihad by speaking. That is why we see great numbers of "moderate Muslims" who post on websites, who speak on TV....

This jihad is not jihad in the traditional sense of terrorist attacks but is also jihadist method , "jIHAD OF THE PEN AND TONGUE".

Most islamic scholars define jihad as internal struggle. This is a partIal definition. But this jihad exists !

Daniel Pipes wants to point to this jihad, the modern method of working and this jihadist method is the gravest danger : the jihadist method of the pen and tongue.

"Is the best chance to defeat us"

Anne-Marie Delcambre, scholar in the field of islamic law (charĂ®'a)
