The Koran begs to differ:
Same ol’ trick to confuse the ‘kaffir’.
They knows that this helps to confuse the ‘kaffirs’, so every chance they get, they misrepresent the true aims of jihad. To inflict terror in the eyes of the non-Muslim and bring that society under the control of the sharia.
‘Jihad’ not to be confused with terrorism, Turkish minister says
The idea of jihad should not be confused with terrorism, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu told a business conference Sunday in Istanbul, adding that the notion is often misunderstood by American “neo-cons and pro-Israelis”.
There is no connection between jihad and terrorism, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said yesterday, adding that suggestions to the contrary come from American neo-cons and Israelis.
“’Jihad’ is the name of fighting for our honour, if required, but above all it means fighting against one’s own limitations,” Davutoğlu said at a business conference on Sunday in Istanbul. Davutoğlu was speaking at a conference entitled “Turkey in light of international developments, 2013” at the headquarters of the Independent Industrialists’ and Businessmen’s Association.
“For us, jihad is a sacred notion; let us not taint this notion by using it like neo-cons and pro-Israelis in America,” Davutoğlu said, while condemning an opposition party deputy who asked the Turkish government on its policy regarding the jihadist movement in Syria at a Turkey-EU Joint Parliamentary Commission meeting on Feb. 15.
