Please PLEASE do you research…
You keep using the term JIHAD incorrectly over and over again.
Stop making it a word filled with hatred and war.
Jihad is a word in the Muslim world meaning a spiritual and inner struggle.
It has nothing to do with Holy Wars or any garbage like that…

SN: Social conservatism with a religious basis and mainstream Islam are natural allies. We have similar beliefs regarding the place of God in society. It makes no sense to alienate our brothers, no matter what a few extremists do. If we focus on the commonalities between Christianity and Islam rather than forcing the dirtier aspects of our culture upon them, perhaps the larger issues would disappear. I would argue that much of the anti-American resentment overseas is due to our commercial presence and the accompanying sexualization/marketization of everything in sight.
