Concept of Jihad

Jihad Watcher

The author of the article linked to below is particularly critical of the Ahmadiyya concept of Jihad and in an interesting article seems to suggest that Muslims should not even have the right to defend themselves and whatever the conditions imposed on them they must roll over and comply.

This is not what Islam teaches. Islam teaches us not to be aggressive but to defend ourselves when attacked or when our rights are violated. This is the concept of just war that the West is now adopting so why is it wrong for the Muslims to do the same.

    When the author of the above critique sees fit to present an actual counter-argument to my argument, then I might respond.

    By the way, the link to my essay provided above does not seem to work. The link is:
