Reader comment on item: Two Germans vs. Islamism

In my opinion the jury is still out on this "List of Islamic Terms". I use Wikipedia often, but perhaps the "list" has been taken over by Islamic apologists. I have attempted several times (so far) to make entries to the "list" in order to honestly offset some of the apologistic bias. In one instance I was sucessful, but my attempts to expand on the meaning of Jihad have been scrubbed. Please see the "list" and "Jihad"(on Wikipedia), you will see that it needs some work.

Dr Pipes has an article on the usage of the word Jihad. In my mind, if a word is used by many people to indicate something or other, then that is (or becomes) its meaning-or at least one of the meanings. Thank you clerics, politicians and academic apologists for helping us understand what something means, but we don't need your assistance.
