You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

This church is good buddies with the Westboro Baptist Church, the group that protests funerals of our dead soldiers. They're burning religious texts out of hatred, something General Petraeus says is going to make his job harder overseas and put more of our guys in danger.
That some people could hate our troops so much makes me sick.
edit: Google cache version of this church's blog, as their actual site seems to be getting hammered now, unsurprisingly.

Muslims Condemn Terrorist Attacks
and plus, do u even know the meaning of Jihad. Jihad refers to "struggle" and an internal one for the first part..
coping with hunger, poverty etc are also forms of jihad...
In premodern times, jihad meant mainly one thing among Sunni Muslims, then as now the Islamic majority. It meant the legal, compulsory, communal effort to expand the territories ruled by Muslims (known in Arabic as dar al-Islam) at the expense of territories ruled by non-Muslims (dar al-harb). In this prevailing conception, the purpose of jihad is political, not religious. It aims not so much to spread the Islamic faith as to extend sovereign Muslim power (though the former has often followed the latter). The goal is boldly offensive, and its ultimate intent is nothing less than to achieve Muslim dominion over the entire world.
The problem is there is no CLEAR path to paradise in the Qu'ran from doing good or being a good muslim, there is however a GUARANTEED entrance to paradise for muslims who give their life in a jihad to spread Islam. So you tell em which one is superior.
according to former PLO terrorist Walid Shoebat "It is a fallacy that 'jihad' represents an 'inner struggle'. [There are] over one hundred quotes by Muhammad [in the Qur'an] referring to jihad by the sword, by killing, by taking no prisoners, by forced conversion, or by enslavement - [and] only one quote referring to an internal struggle"
Qu'ran 3:169 - And reckon not those who are killed in Allah's way as dead; nay, they are alive (and) are provided sustenance from their Lord
4:74 - Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world's life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward.
