We saw this in the U.S. several years ago, with Hamas-linked CAIR’s brutally cynical “My Jihad” ad campaign, featuring a series of Muslims saying that their jihad consisted of things such as taking the kids to school and going to the gym regularly. The simple fact is that the word “jihad” in Arabic means “struggle,” and covers a whole range of struggles large and small, but the primary meaning of “jihad” in Islamic law is warfare against and subjugation of unbelievers. If the woman in the video thinks that her jihad is going to college and studying and being kind to people, that doesn’t negate the fact that other Muslims think that their jihad is killing non-Muslims. The German government should realize that some Muslims seeing jihad in a benign way does absolutely nothing to stop the Muslims who don’t.
The German government should be issuing videos alerting Germans to the meaning of jihad that endangers them, not trying to render its population complacent about a threat to their very lives. What on earth could be compelling it to do that? Why have Merkel and her cohorts become essentially treasonous in the face of the jihad threat?

The video’s title resembles the name of Adolf Hitler’s autobiography “Mein Kampf,” German for “My Struggle,” and even starts off by explaining that “jihad” literally translates to “kampf” in German.
The video then goes on to explain that most Islamic scholars agree that jihad hasn’t been around since the 16th century, and that it is “not a license for unrestricted killing.”
The woman behind the video, a German Muslim girl, also describes how her jihad starts “by getting up in the morning and following the call to prayer.”…
