You have a bunch of other notions you're associating with Islam, as a fearful outsider; which is a different thing altogether. Even if there were a word, it wouldn't mean to you, what it does to them.<

If you are trying to answer my question "How do you say 'Islamism' in Arabic", then may I humbly point out that you are wasting your time and mine trying like a little cheating pupil to hide from me the fact that you don't know the answer.

> Take Jihad, or struggle, more specifically ongoing struggle. Like good gov't is an on-going struggle, cutting, spending, re-evaluating, tweeking programs, phasing some out; that's a jihad. Gardening is a jihad, always tending. Keeping clear of sin and temptation is a jihad."

Was Mahomet a gardener ? Weren't his wars, lies and crimes jihad pure and simple ? And isn't burning down a medieval church in Kosovo or desecrating a Christian cemetery in Northern Cyprus or massacring Copts or forcing them to convert to Islam in Egypts jihad in the finest and most impeccable tradition of Mahomet ?

Anyway, may I ask you a frank question? Why do you Moslems and pro-Islamic Fifth Columnists consider us kafirs to be idiots? You haven't noticed that your disinformation and lies don't work any longer with us,have you?The more numerous you become here the weaker and less efficient your lie is. You can be deceived once by one lying scoundrel.When you confront 100 and more cheaters with one repetitive story they have to tell you, you simply won't be cheated by it 100 times! But you don't get it, do you? Islam has made your mind as barren as the desert from which Islam itself comes , hasn't it?
