On this day of peace I thought it would be fitting to link to a dissertation on the function of warfare in the Qur’an (Koran).
The dissertation written by prof. Joel Hayward explains and analyses what the Qur’an tells Muslims about how to conduct war (only in self defence) if the need arises and what the difference is between war and Jihad (a spiritual struggle within the self, much like Christians are supposed to have against their own sinful desires) a word that strikes fear in the uninformed western populace who are propagandised with pictures of beheadings by masked men with black flags with white Arabic text behind them into believing that all Muslims (25% of the human race) are raving terrorist lunatics.
Peace, Vrede, Paix, Salaam, Shalom, etc. etc. in all languages around the globe
