One night back in the summer of 1990, I traveled by train from Munich to Berlin. The Wall had come down, in the sense that the borders between East and West could now be crossed at will, even though the two Germanys had yet to become one and the actual physical Wall itself was still largely intact
(In Berlin, I would find natives and tourists alike busily chopping away at it.) When, in the dead of night, the train stopped at a dilapidated, seemingly deserted station somewhere in the East, there appeared on the platform an aging, grim-faced woman, dressed in an extremely shabby military (or military-style) uniform and holding a clipboard, who, making her way along the length of the train,

Greater jihad is an inner struggle aiming at removing psychological habits and biological instincts that keep Muslims from following the Islamic teachings
The problem is that the pinnacle of these teachings is the lesser jihad, killing or subjugating non-Muslims. Greater jihad is just another word for self-radicalisation.
In some Islamic traditions, scholars talk about two kinds of jihad: greater jihad and lesser jihad. Greater jihad denotes an inner psychological struggle of submitting to Muhammed's example and the teachings of Allah. Lesser jihad is what is commonly known as Islamic holy war -- the attempt to spread Islam by submitting non-Muslims and non-Islamic areas to Sharia through preferably violent, but also non-violent, means.
In a column in the Mail on Sunday, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair finally tackles the gorilla in the room:
The terrorism being committed in the name of Islam is endemic to the religion itself – a worldview better suited to a blood-drenched 8th century caliphate than a 21st century interconnected world with at least pretensions of democracy.

Last week in London, two Muslim men shouting jihad’s ancient war-cry, "Allahu Akbar” beheaded a British soldier with a cleaver—in a busy intersection and in broad daylight. They boasted in front of passersby and asked to be videotaped

Paul Weston uses the latest news about prison jihad in Yorkshire to illustrate the treasonous behavior of the globalist elites who have rammed Multiculturalism down the throats of Britons
There is a great deal of difference between times of peace and times of war. This may seem a very obvious statement, but I’m not sure left-liberals really understand the simplicity behind it.
Before mass immigration and multiculturalism so efficiently sickened the cultural, racial and body politic, it would have been impossible to blow up buildings, trains, planes and buses without first defeating the military defenders of the crushed nation.

If politicians and journalists, instead of working with genuine moderates, instead praise the reactions of groups that still aggressively promote Islamism, we legitimize such voices as the future of British Islam, while doing nothing to prevent the continued radicalization.
Condell on London Jihad Butchery: "We Want A Clear Categorical Rejection of the Islamic Doctrine of Armed Jihad”
AndrewBostom.org 29 May 2013
The historical record demonstrates that the jihad war theory which motivated the London atrocity has been put into practice by Muslims, continuously, across the globe, for over a millennium, through present times. What remains is for the Muslim intelligentsia to acknowledge this practice, as Bat Ye’or explained , over two decades ago, in 1991. She provided this scholarly call for the requisite mea culpa from the Islamic intelligentsia two decades ago (in her Les chretientes d’Orient entre jihad et dhimmitude: VIIe-XXe siecle):

Some of my best friends are Muslims. Or rather, some of my best friends were Muslims—not that they are no longer Muslims but that they are no longer my friends
The problem I had over years of friendship had to do with certain personal attributes which I value highly, namely, consistency and the ability to recognize facts. My friends were good men who believed in Western democratic values, in selective immigration policies based on the possession of needed skills that would contribute to both society and the economy, in the necessity for Muslim (and all) immigrants to assimilate into the heritage culture, and in customary methods of education and a traditional curriculum; they rejected the utter folly of multiculturalism as it is practiced in Canada.

MOST people find it hard to imagine stabbing another human being, let alone almost decapitating someone with a meat cleaver.
To do so in broad daylight and in the middle of the road, while asking passers-by to take pictures, simply beggars belief. Few can understand how the British jihadists Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale could be filled with such hate.
