In this new era of political correctness, the U.S. Army has published a special handbook for soldiers that appears to justify Islamic jihad by describing it as the communal military defense of Islam and Muslims when they are threatened or under attack.
Because radical Muslim groups consider Islam to be perpetually under moral, spiritual, economic, political and military attack by the secular west they consider military jihad a constant necessity and use it as a rallying cry to resist and attack all this is un-Islamic, according to the new Army manual.
The handbook was created to help soldiers become culturally literate ambassadors with sensitivity and understanding of Islamic civilization. The goal is to help them understand how vital culture is in accomplishing military missions. Military personnel who have a distorted picture of a host culture make enemies for the United States. At least thats what the publication (Culture Cards: Afghanistan & Islamic Culture) says. An organization of scientists dedicated to national and international security issues discovered the new Army tool and published it on its website a few days ago.
The manual has nearly three dozen informative chapters dedicated to subjects such as Muslim taboos, the five pillars if Islam, Jihad, the Quran and Muslim festivals. There are also sections on ethnocentrism, cultural relativism and social norms and mores. The lengthy introduction defines cultural competencyawareness and sensitivity of another groupand social norms and mores in Arab countries.

I will pray that no soldier is stupid enough to fall for the Obamamuslinkoranlie.
Define “fall for”.
Seems to me the Army manual is pretty accurate.
Jihad is what they think is necessary when Islam is under assault or Islamist feel they should be aggrieved. Islamists are perpetually aggrieved for all sorts of matters, both real and imagined. Thus they are in a perpetual state of jihad.
Soldiers aren't ambassadors.
All our guys need to know about Islamists is how to kill them.
As many of them as possible, in as short a time possible, and with as few friendly losses as possible.
Knowledge is power!
(Even if you don’t like it)
well, if you spit one way, you fart the other way
So which one will it be for mecca?
OMG! I have no words for this.
