Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Jihad does not mean "holy war"

You are both correct and wrong about jihad.

It means both inner religious struggle, or war against "wrongdoers".

Muhammed himself said that disabled and old were not bound buy the duty of jihad...

Why would he say that if it was just an inner struggle?
