Thanks, Dan, for broadcasting the ONLY article I have yet seen that mentions the impetus for this "jihad." Their "religion."

Other articles speak of jihad as if it were akin to teenage angst gone awry.

Didn't G. K. Chesterton write about this many years ago? This gloss-over-speak used to homogenize the issue?
