It is noteworthy that none of the Islamic spokesmen in the U.S. will make any effort to show that these hadiths are false, or that Muhammad Yusuf is misunderstanding them. Yet it is on the assumption that Islam is a Religion of Peace™ that the legitimacy of such spokesmen lies: the average non-Muslim takes for granted that Muhammad Yusuf is indeed a "lone wolf" who is twisting and hijacking the true, peaceful teachings of Islam. Yet the mainstream media never presses them to demonstrate this, and so they never bother.
If they did, and if they were sincere about what they claim to be (I am speaking of the likes of Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, Ibrahim Hooper, Nihad Awad, etc.), they would already have formulated a response to the understanding of Islam that people like Muhammad Yusuf hold, and would be making sure it was being taught in mosques in the U.S. The fact that they do not indicates that they are not sincere.
Hadiths About Jihad From Saheeh Bukhari -2
Book 4, Volume 52: Hadiths 112-181
Book 4, Volume 52: Hadith 112
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, " Horses are kept for one of three purposes; for some people they are a source of reward, for some others they are a means of shelter and for some others they are a source of sins. The one for whom they are a source of reward, is he who keeps a horse for Allah's Cause (i.e. Jihad) tying it with a long tether on a meadow or in a garden with the result that whatever it eats from the area of the meadow or the garden where it is tied will be counted as good deeds for his benefit, and if it should break its rope and jump over one or two hillocks then all its dung and its foot marks will be written as good deeds for him; and if it passes by a river and drinks water from it even though he had no intention of watering it, even then he will get the reward for its drinking. As for the man for whom horses are a source of sins, he is the one who keeps a horse for the sake of pride and pretense and showing enmity for Muslims: such a horse will be a source of sins for him. When Allah's Apostle was asked about donkeys, he replied, "Nothing has been revealed to me about them except this unique, comprehensive Verse: "Then anyone who does an atom's (or a small ant's) weight of good shall see it; and anyone who does an atom's (or a small ant's) weight of evil, shall see it.' (101.7-8)
Book 4, Volume 52: Hadith 113
Narrated Muslim from Abu Aqil from Abu Al-Mutawakkil An-Naji:
I called on Jabir bin 'Abdullah Al-Ansari and said to him, "Relate to me what you have heard from Allah's Apostle." He said, "I accompanied him on one of the journeys." (Abu Aqil said, "I do not know whether that journey was for the purpose of Jihad or 'Umra.") "When we were returning," Jabir continued, "the Prophet said, 'Whoever wants to return earlier to his family, should hurry up.' We set off and I was on a black red tainted camel having no defect, and the people were behind me. While I was in that state, the camel stopped suddenly because of exhaustion. On that the Prophet said to me, 'O Jabir, wait!' Then he hit it once with his lash and it started moving on a fast pace. He then said, 'Will you sell the camel?' I replied in the affirmative when we reached Medina, and the Prophet went to the Mosque along with his companions. I, too, went to him after tying the camel on the pavement at the Mosque gate. Then I said to him, 'This is your camel.' He came out and started examining the camel and saying, 'The camel is ours.' Then the Prophet sent some Awaq (i.e. an amount) of gold saying, 'Give it to Jabir.' Then he asked, 'Have you taken the full price (of the camel)?' I replied in the affirmative. He said, 'both the price and the camel are for you.' ''

When the Muslims started collecting the war booty, the pagans faced us with arrows, but Allah's Apostle did not flee.

Whenever the Prophet intended to proceed on a journey, he used to draw lots amongst his wives and would take the one upon whom the lot fell.
