Condemnation of Jihadi Terrorists
11/30/2008 1:52:43 AM
This was written as an answer to a question posed on iReport.com. It was asked if all Muslims supported terrorist attacks, and the question presumed that Jihad is defined as "terrorist attacks," a very erroneous assumption.

Jihad requires Muslims to "struggle in the way of God" or "to struggle to improve one's self and/or society." Jihad is directed against Satan's inducements, aspects of one's own self, or against a visible enemy. The four major categories of jihad that are recognized are Jihad against one's self (Jihad al-Nafs), Jihad of the tongue (Jihad al-lisan), Jihad of the hand (Jihad al-yad), and Jihad of the sword (which can involve combat against non-Muslims)(Jihad as-sayf). ~Wikipedia  Jihad as-sayf is considered to be a required Muslim activity if their people come under attack (holy war), but is not approved to be used without provocation.

Jihadi terrorism is not recognized as a platform of Islam by moderate and liberal Muslims, and "terrorist Jihadis" are openly condemned by all but extremist militant Muslims.

Jihadi terrorism is an ideology of political extremism. Ideologies are systems of abstract thought (as opposed to mere ideation) applied to public matters and thus make this concept central to politics. Implicitly every political tendency entails an ideology whether or not it is propounded as an explicit system of thought. This is what seperates Islam from Jihadi terrorism; when an ideology becomes the central focus of a religious sect, they have seperated themselves from their religion.

At this point in time, it would be safe to say that a majority of our world population (including Muslims) would support eradication of terrorist groups where ever they exist, and regardless of how they name themselves. It only remains for world leaders to unite in this common cause.
