Mein Jihad (My Jihad)


The German Federal Agency for Civic Education has released a video explaining the origins and meaning of Jihad. According to the program, Jihad historically means protecting Islam against foreign attacks, standing up for free speech and strong education, being humanitarian, be socially responsible and progressive, solve conflicts through debates, tolerate people who think different and reaching out a helping hand, even to the cold, hateful and intolerant people they have to experience. According to the program, the highest goal in personal Jihad is to peacefully coexist with others and do as much good as possible.
