Sunnis consider them beyond the pale is that Ahmadis do not ascribe to violent jihad.

Wrong again. Muslims regard them as kuffar because they regard that Mizra Ghulam as a prophet when the Islamic historical tradition regards Muhammad as khatem al-anbiya'

As for jihad there is no such thing as jihad al-3unf there is one jihad which means holy war but you know what? you sound like the BBC and the LATimes ,

Now there is indeed a hadith but it is a hadith da3eef where we are told about the small jihad (your so called violent jihad) and the big jihad or jihad al-qalam which I suspect it was produced in a miliau where the ulama were told by Muslims that were fighting why should we fight and you sit on your rear ends enjoying the spoils of war but it is a hadith that has no use for sunni Islam

But here is where the problem is: Jihad has always been: Holy War and these Ahamdees do not realize that the word ijtihad and not jihad is what they are talking about. Which means that they are ignorant

Now you tell me why should I read what you wrote when I can read the primary sources in Arabic?

It seems that the one who needs to do some reading is you
