We have collected the best Jihad Quotes by famous authors including Dianne Feinstein, Anand Gopal, George Packer, Jack Keane, Aman Mojadidi and many others, we hope that among them you will find the right thought.
Simply put, Guantanamo is one of the best propaganda tools that terrorists have today. Our enemies use it to justify terrorism and recruit others to carry out violent jihad, and our allies continue to criticize it as a violation of the rule of law.
Al Qaeda’s vision of global jihad doesn’t resonate in the rugged highlands and windswept deserts of southern Afghanistan. Instead, the major concern throughout much of the country is intensely local: personal safety.
Al Qaeda asks its recruits to establish their bona fides as a condition of membership, even requiring answers to a long questionnaire. But ISIS has democratized and globalized jihad by lowering the entry bar to an eve-of-destruction YouTube pledge of allegiance to the caliphate – and even that could probably be waived.
Radical Islam, it has grown into a global jihad.
Jihad is the Afghan bling.
Syria is attracting a lot more Westerners than the Iraq War ever did because it’s the perfect Sunni jihad.
There’s no question that jihad historically means war.
Look at the newborn baby. It struggles to breathe after living in the womb. And yet, growth comes as a result of struggle. Even when we talk about jihad. We need to attach consciousness to struggle. This struggle has to be both individual and collective.
H. Rap Brown
President Obama has argued there isn’t a threat of terrorism from the U.S. refugee program because for individuals who apply it takes two years, ‘heavy vetting’ and is a relatively long process. It doesn’t matter. Jihad is patient, and as ISIS has pledged, it will do whatever it takes to get the job done.
‘Jihad’ can mean holy war to extremists, but it means struggle to the average Muslim.
Feisal Abdul Rauf
Jihad is holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community.
John O. Brennan
We declared jihad against the U.S. government because the U.S. government is unjust, criminal and tyrannical. It has committed acts that are extremely unjust, hideous and criminal, whether directly or through its support of the Israeli occupation.
Osama bin Laden
Osama bin Laden has managed to replace fear of God and adherence to the Quran with his philosophy of jihad above all else. What’s behind that facade is the true philosophical intentions of al Qaeda: the establishment of a new Islamic caliphate that will defeat democracy as the greater of the two political orders.
What made al Qaeda retrieve the doctrine of militant jihad, and Breivik the ideas of crusade and reconquest, is a sense of siege. So, we should help both Westerners and Muslims get rid of that sense by easing their political tensions and by fostering dialogue between them.
Yes, ISIL is a terror-based insurgent army that seeks to establish a Caliphate, but the group’s actual end goal is far from political: ISIL believes that, through jihad, it will bring about the Day of Judgment. This is not true Islam.
The greater jihad is proclaiming war on our ego’s destructive and negative emotions and thoughts… which prevent us from attaining perfection.
If I am elected president, every militant on the face of the planet will know, if you go and join ISIS, if you wage jihad on the United States of America, if you attempt to murder innocent Americans you are signing your death warrant.
The Syrian border town of Qa’im was the main gateway Islamic radicals used to go to Iraq. Syria became the passageway for extremists from Egypt, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and other Muslim nations to fight a jihad against American forces in Iraq.
Almost everybody thinks that the fight is about ideology. Everybody will tell you, ‘Well, the fighting is all about the Middle East.’ ‘Well, it’s about Muslims starting jihad.’ ‘It’s about terrorism.’ ‘It’s about this or that.’ And no, it’s not. It’s about money.
Jihad is obligatory for the Muslims.
A hedonistic lifestyle contrary to all the rules and expectations of Islam is not an unusual precursor to radicalisation: in fact, some young radicals see joining in the jihad as a way of achieving redemption for past sins.
I think, when I wrote ‘Children of Jihad,’ I wrote it with a very optimistic view of what technology can do. Today I maintain that optimistic view, but I’m also aware of the challenges we have. So I would say I’m not a techno-utopian, but I’m a techno-pragmatist.
Whatever the reason, American Muslims appear far less inclined to support the global jihad than their European counterparts.
Young people, some of whom are not born into the faith, are being fired up by preachers using basic Islamic scripture and mobilized to wage jihad by radical imams who represent themselves as legitimate Muslim clergymen.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
It’s much harder to detect a lone wolf than it is somebody who’s associated with a larger organization who’s having planning meetings and making phone calls to people in the organization. And so that is really how the jihad has really developed in the United States.
Religious liberty doesn’t include encouraging a fellow American to engage in violent jihad and kill an American here. That is not protected free speech. That is not protected religious belief.
Are we fighting too many wars? And I would say no. We’re fighting one war. And it’s a war against radical Islamic Jihad.
You are right, but the weakness does not come from the millions of Muslims in the world. They do not mind being radical, they have no fear to speak out and to protest and to jihad.
Abu Bakar Bashir
For many foreign fighters, the jihad in Iraq and Syria is a commuter war.
Jihad will continue even if I am not around.
Osama bin Laden
The people who abandon Jihad fall a victim to humility and degradation.
Damascus is the center of world terror. All these organizations, Jihad and Hamas, their headquarters are in Damascus. Syria supports Hezbollah.
A foreign ideology cannot be introduced into Chechnya – were it through an Arab or al-Qaeda. Our experience is rich and long enough for us to be Muslims and know what jihad is.
