Reader comment on item: Palestinians Who Helped Create Israel
in response to reader comment: "Gazi" means "jihadist" and "gazavat" means "jihad"

Submitted by Andrei Gitch (Sweden), Jul 28, 2011 at 14:43

For Jesus sake! Gazavat means "holy war against non-islamic people" and Jihad means "holy commitment in the name of Allah" such commitment of keeping silence, doing good things, etc., and has nothing with any kind of agression. No wonder american policy in the Middle East is a disaster, like elsewhere, however.
