Video debate on the meaning of Jihad

The Meaning of Jihad
On January 22, TVO featured a debate on the meaning of the word Jihad with five members of the Muslim community. The participants were:

* Shabir Ally, president of the Islamic Information and Dawah Centre in Toronto
* Mohammad Fadel, professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto.
* Aly Hindy, Imam of the Salaheddin Islamic Centre in Toronto
* Muqtedar Khan, director of Islamic Studies at the University of Delaware and author of Jihad for Jerusalem
* Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress and author of Chasing a Mirage: The Tragic Illusion of an Islamic State.

Here is classic Islamic duplicity. The only one of these guests telling any degree of truth is Tarek Fatah. The rest are practicing the usual telling the kuffar one thing, that jihad is like meditation on how to be nice while telling each other quite another thing. Tarek even points it out that the definition of jihad as some kind of inner struggle is only ever done in ‘situations like this’ on TV talking to the infidel. Think of this as an instructional video in Islamic tactics. Each one takes a separate typical approach to lying to infidels. One constantly tries to change the debate to how bad Israel is despite the fact that it has nothing to do with the show, and the show already did an episode on evil Israel the week before.

  1. There would seem to be as many different defintions of jihad as there is for any of the other ‘tenets’ of Islam; think of it as being at the fair and throwing a dart on the big fun pin wheel for ten bucks to garner the prized stuffed bear.

    So many authorities and so many differing interpretations it’s mind boggling. It seems to me that Islam is open to continuing disaster at the hands of any sheik, imam, cleric or other intrepretor who is bent on inferring their own personal bias or advancing a political, proxy agenda of any one of the nations of Islam; take your pick. Talk about mass marketing and consumerism.

  2. There is one meaning for jihad and two explanations. The one meaning is war to spread Islam and kill the infidel. When talking to infidel authorities before you have the numbers to be direct jihad is explained as an inner struggle to find the right position for your twenty minute yoga session. Unless you are in Indonesia, where yoga was just made illegal as blasphemous. But other than that, Jihad is about learning to fold your legs for a lotus position. Until there is more of them than you. Then you get to find out what jihad really means. See real meaning #1.
