I can see why muslims would be at pains to deny the truth, the bitter reality of their ideology is too much to bear, so they have to spin it in order to stay in it. Leaving it involves too much mental muscle and family problems. That said, many muslims do end up leaving islam, making their choices based upon their own humanity learned from outside influence.
This person however, is still in the Islamo-matrix, hooked up and floating tard goo.
people get the word jihad mixed up as meaning holy war but im hear to inform you that is not the meaning of jihad. jihad means struggle in arabic, in islan there is two forms of jihad greater jihad and lesser jihad. now greater jihad the most important is the struggle within your self the battle between shayteen(saten) the battle between right and wrong, all people face this jihad now lesser jihad is the holy war, this jihad is the fight between oppression or against invading armys who are there to destroy your people, its not a excuse to sloughter innocens or kill neadlisly. groups like ISIS AL-QUIDA ETC….. are a discrace they prevert the true meaning of jihad.
Not so fast says Robert:
In Arabic Islam means “submission” and jihad means “struggle.” While that struggle can take the form of self-improvement, the primary meaning of jihad in the Qur’an and Sunnah is warfare against unbelievers in order to subjugate them under the rule of Islamic law.
Most Muslims may indeed believe that. Yet while this likelihood provides comfort for non-Muslims with its suggestion that most Muslims would prefer to tend to their own souls rather than to wage war against their non-Muslim neighbors, it actually doesn’t establish what what both Muslims and non-Muslims seem to wish it did. This is because the traditional pedigree of the spiritual jihad is not as firm as it is often advertised to be. The hadith in which Muhammad makes a distinction between “greater jihad” of spiritual struggle and the “lesser jihad” of warfare doesn’t appear in any of the hadith collections that Muslims consider most reliable. Jihad understood as warfare against unbelievers in order to establish the hegemony of Islamic law has much greater support in Islamic scripture, tradition, and historical practice — and leading jihad theorists including Hasan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Abdullah Azzam, Osama bin Laden’s friend and intellectual mentor and co-founder with him of Al-Qaeda, challenge the authenticity of the saying in their writings. This only buttresses their claim, which Habeck notes below, to represent the “true believers.”
But violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history. Many passages of the Koran and sayings of the Prophet Mohammed are used by radical Muslims today to justify their actions and gain new recruits. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, which denies unbelievers equality of human rights and dignity, is available today for anyone with the will and means to bring it to life.
In a lengthy and well-attested tradition, Mohammed delineates three choices for nonbelievers — choices which are derived from Koran’s Sura 9:29: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, [even if they are] of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
Says Mohammed: “Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. … When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to [accept] Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. … If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya [the special tax on non-Muslims prescribed by Islamic law]. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them.”
