Obama Administration Defends “Jihad” — “Mein Kampf” Means “My Jihad” in Arabic

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, June 5, 2010, 9:54 AM

Last week Barack Obama’s top Counterterrorism adviser announced that the administration believed they “jihad was a legitimate tenet of Islam.”
FOX News reported:
The president’s top counterterrorism adviser on Wednesday calledjihad a “legitimate tenet of Islam,” arguing that the term “jihadists” should not be used to describe America’s enemies.
During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of “political, economic and social forces,” but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in “religious terms.”
He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not “terrorism,” because terrorism is a “tactic,” and not terror, because terror is a “state of mind” — though Brennan’s title, deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, includes the word “terrorism” in it. But then Brennan said that the word “jihad” should not be applied either.
“Nor do we describe our enemy as ‘jihadists’ or ‘Islamists’ because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam,meaning to purify oneself or one’s community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children,” Brennan said.
There’s something very dark and concerning about this.
The German words “Mein Kampf” translate to “jihad-i”—or, “my jihad”—in Arabic.
Would the Obama Administration defend Hitler, too?

I knew the history between Hitler and the Arabs, but I never new the translation of the word.
The Obama administration can't seem to do enough to dumb down our country.Unfortunately,apathy has also made idiots out of many Americans.
People should be outraged and out in the streets over comments like this.
