The many faces of grand Jihad

RenewAmerica 24 October 2011
By Tabitha Korol

Muslims believe that only Jihad can reestablish a true Muslim state to abolish injustice and bring people into their God's service — by eradicating other political systems by the sword — to preach, restore the Caliphate and destroy their enemies, infidels and Jews. Raised by devout, doting families, many are taught 7th century masculine virtues, trained to feel isolated from their host society, develop a group mentality, and though not predisposed to do harm individually, they can perform monstrous acts collectively.
