  1. I’m aware of that & thanks for reminding my readers of this. The problem is that Al Qaeda & groups like Islamic Jihad have hijacked the term for their own purposes. And Al Qaeda’s usage is the one that most of the world knows about. Hence, the mistaken notion among non-Muslims that jihad has a terrorist, intolerant connotation.

    My understanding is that jihad means “striving” and most often has a positive meaning though it can be used in the Al Qaeda context as well.
