The duty of Jihad has to be defined accurately

Hugh Fitzgerald

The duty of Jihad has to be defined accurately, but also in a way that can easily be grasped by auditors, so that it does not exclude, but clearly includes, all of the current instruments that Muslims employ to further Jihad.

The initial smokescreen, or deception, offered both by Muslims and by such non-Muslim apologists as Karen Armstrong and John Esposito, was to suggest, or even insist, that the very recent, and most secondary, definition of “Jihad,” formulated primarily by some “reforming” Muslims in the last century (at a time when Muslims were weak, and in apparent disarray), was the widely-accepted one. But this has been impossible to sustain, given the widespread use by Muslims themselves – now copiously quoted at such sites as MEMRI, and in newspaper and radio and television accounts – of the real meaning of Jihad.

Courage and the Long War against Islamic Supremacism and Jihad (Part 1 of 2)

Jeffrey Imm

Summary: In the long war against Islamic supremacism ahead, human rights leaders fighting against this ideology must refocus the challenge as a struggle between the inherent human rights of equality and liberty versus Islamic supremacism – not extremism, radicalism, militancy, fascism, or even Islamism. To gain widespread American public understanding and support, it is essential that the supremacist nature of Islamic supremacism be communicated and compared to America's history of confrontation against white supremacism in the war of ideas. It must be conveyed that the ideology of Islamic supremacism itself is a threat, regardless of whether its adherents use "political" or Jihadist tactics. In addition to Islamic supremacism being the basis for Jihadist tactics, it must be clarified that the ideology of Islamic supremacism is used to repress and crush those seeking equality and liberty in America and around the world.

We must overcome short-term political events and efforts by those who would "engage" and "reconcile" with Islamic supremacists. We must recognize that ultimately the inalienable human rights of equality and liberty will prevail over Islamic supremacism. We must embrace our challenging, but historical, role in continuing the efforts of America's founding fathers in defending the inalienable human rights of equality and liberty, and the uncompromising belief that "All Men Are Created Equal."

Military report: Terms 'jihad,' 'Islamist' needed

Bill Gertz


A U.S. military "Red Team" charged with challenging conventional thinking says that words like "jihad" and "Islamist" are needed in discussing 21st-century terrorism and that federal agencies that avoid the words soft-pedaled the link between religious extremism and violent acts.

"We must reject the notion that Islam and Arabic stand apart as bodies of knowledge that cannot be critiqued or discussed as elements of understanding our enemies in this conflict,"
said the internal report, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times.
