Why the over blown rhetoric?

Dear Dhimmi no more,

Where exactly is the conflict between what you are writing and what I have written. The only form of Jihad which we, meaning you,me and all the other readers, should be concerned with is Jihad as warfare.

هو قتال من يجوز قتالهم ، والفعل جاهد يجاهد

Struggling through worship against the forbidden and traveling on the path of the lawful.

In other words the greater Jihad.

I mentioned this only in passing because we are not endangered by the individual acts of worship of Muslims. We are however in placed in grave danger by Muslims engaging in warfare against us.

If you want to brand over one billion Muslims as our enemies that is fine. I personally do not believe that this is a successful strategy to confronting Muslim terrorists.
