Of course jihad means war...who doesn't know that?

Reader comment on item: Jihad through History

Submitted by Dr Ahmed Youssif. MD (China), Jun 1, 2005 at 13:32

Dear Prof. Daniel Pipes,

Thank you very much for your succinct and excellent book review on Prof. Cook's work.

As in any other human language, should not cause any surprise to anyone that also in Arabic language there is a word to say "war", it doesn't matter if spiritual or fleshy, it is all war :)

However, what could really surprise many (especially those narrow minded, being them islamists, atheists or simply "greens" against wars ---- is that not every war is legitimated by God, especially if that specific war is not to protect the free-will endowed to us by Him, but for the very opposite : to establish serfdom among us.

For me the best Jihadist appeared on Earth in the last 50 years, who I think and I hope God will reward him and legitimate his Jihad, is named George W. Bush, for what he did and is doing in Iraq.

Congratulations again and wish you all the best,

Salaam,

Dr. Ahmed Youssif, MD
