To further on that
Jihad, in Islam, (contrary to what you hear in the US media) is when you defend your own country/people
For example, I'm Egyptian, if an israeli attacks my country, and I die defending my country, Thats jihad.
If I'm a retarded Muslim, being told to come and blow myself up in the planes that hit the world trade center, that's not jihad
That's murder, and suicide.
