Jihad in Seattle or Jihad in USA...

Reader comment on item: [Naveed Haq and] "Sudden Jihad Syndrome" in Seattle

Submitted by Jaladhi (United States), Aug 10, 2006 at 11:09

.. would be a more appropriate title for this article by Dr. Pipes rather than calling it a " sudden syndrome", because jihad is neither "sudden" nor a "syndrome" to Muslims. Jihad is taught to Muslims from the very beginning of their religious education and by the time they grow, they are well steeped with jihad. It is just a matter of time when a Muslim decides to manifest it outwardly and carry it out to fulfill his mission to Allah. Let us just call the problem what it is rather than dance around it.
