This morning I found this email in my Jihad Watch inbox:
i want u brothrs to continue your holy jihad adainst the coward jews, they will defeat and u will win this battle. Merajuddin From afghanistan,
That’s all it said, but that was enough. Of course, Merajuddin is not the first Muslim jihadist to mistake this site for one that is pro-jihad. It’s interesting, however, to get a renewed indication that this mindset is alive and well — even as Merajuddin must jostle for space in my inbox with indignant blinkered Westerners who lecture me for not knowing that jihad is a spiritual struggle within the soul of the believer.
