As your case shows you may be bilingual without understanding the origin and meaning of the word. After all to the best of my nowledge there are Arabic for theological reasons does without Arabic etymological dictionaries , so how on earth can you understand anything in it and dare teach others ? You give no references excepting your big Arabic mouth. Anyway, what you need to understand the word is curiosity and search for a few relevant links.

You say :

>Gazi is an Arabic term which refer to a the individual who invade, GOSAT is plural of GAZI, the term comes from the word GAZWA which means: Invasion, . The term refers to an act, never to religion or purpose...<

"Ghazw is a raid that has evolved into the term for battle ghazah or ghazwah. These were battles in which teh prophet Muhammad personally participated. The term ghazi came to mean "warrior for the faith" , as these battles came to be associated with the expansion of Muslim territory" Aboul-Enein, H. Yousuf and Zuhur, Sherifa,"Islamic Rulings on Warfare", Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College, Diane Publishing Co., Darby PA, p.6.

> Ghazi or ghazah (noun (s. m.): غازي ġāzī; verb (s. m.): غزا ġazā, from غزو ġazw) is an Arabic term that means "to raid/foray." From it evolved the word "Ghazwa" (غزوة ġazwah) which specifically refers to battles led by the Islamic prophet Muhammad.<


>Word of wisdom: ... stop writing things that you don't know do to save some of your Credibility ...,

He who has got eyes can easily see from the above that the sort of "wisdom" you mean is what is commonly known as its very opposite. I am afraid that a relevant sentence about you in your mother tongue would be أنت غبي

As to your own credibility the only thing I can say is "May Allah have mercy on it ! "
