CAIR activists this week announced that their “#my jihad” ad campaign began running Monday in D.C. metro stations. CAIR organizer Ahmed Rehab says that he is hoping to change the narrative around the word jihad. The word jihad is synonymous with terrorism all over the world. The Federal Government is already two steps ahead of Mr. Rehab’s grand plan to change the narrative of the word jihad. Our Department of Justice has used its own definitions of jihad in indictments of individuals involved in terrorist activities. The Obama Administration has redefined Jihad as a work place accident, this label was given to the Fort Hood Shooter.
Since the terrorist attacks on 911 by Muslim extremists the word Jihad has struck fear and anger in the hearts and minds of people around the world. Mr. Ahmed Rehab this would be a great plan if it targeted the right people? Muslim extremists use Jihad to incite Muslim men and woman around the world to kill infidels. CAIR should take there time and money to educate people in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran and many other countries exactly like these using the meaning of the word to further the cause of Muslim Extremism around the world. Don’t waste your resources trying to convince informed Americans of “your new meaning” of the word Jihad. This won’t be so easy?
The Quran does call for “jihad” as a military struggle on behalf of Islam. But the Quran also refers to jihad as an internal, individual, spiritual struggle toward self-improvement, moral cleansing and intellectual effort.
These are some of the more questionable definitions of the word Jihad
The “lesser jihad” is the physical struggle against the enemies of Islam
Jihad: a holy war waged on behalf of Islam as a religious duty
Jihad: A war or struggle against unbelievers.
Jihad: Struggling to achieve a noble cause
Jihad: A crusade for a principle or belief
This deceitful campaign launched by CAIR trying to redefine a word with such a powerful targeted meaning will fall short and will only awaken more people to the true definition and ultimate goal of the word Jihad. Good luck trying to change the narrative, a word of advice take your money and go where the jihadists are continuing to destroy your master plan. After all they are the ones who need to be educated not the American people we know the real meaning of the word Jihad and I fear your people do to?
