Omar, could you list a few of those 50,000 incidents you've counted, that were intended to create terror in the general population, and that were done in the name of Christianity, perhaps encouraged, or facilitated, or financed by Catholic priests or protestant ministers? Please include a few examples when Christians danced in the steets right after the incident, or when newspapers in the Vatican put the perpertrators' pictures on page 1 of the newspaper, under a headline such as "Christian soldiers" (like the 19 9/11 hijackers on page 1 of Pakistani newspapers with headlines like "heroes of Islam")? Thank you.

Here is the definition of jihad, from mainstream Shafii law: "to war against non-Muslims, derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare, to establish the religion" (Shafii law # 09.0 p. 599).
