Islamic Jihadis, Christian Jihadis and Plain Jihadi Jihadis

December 23rd, 2004 Leave a comment Go to comments

An Islamic scholar on BBC Radio 4’s Today Program confirmed the meaning of Jihad as the personal battle each of us faces to manifest the world of ‘God’. Roughly as I described it in an earlier post.

Quite simply, any true Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, ecologist or environmentalist is engaged in this endeavour. We are all of us, at least all of us ’spiritual types’, Jihadis, trying to help promulgate a world of truth and justice, a world of ‘God’. I say this despite being a Buddhist and atheist. My understanding of the word ‘God’ should perhaps be explained: ‘God’ is a word people use to describe the things they perceive yet cannot understand – especially if they are afraid of them.
