A taxpayer-funded study released this week declares that Muslim terrorists are generally misunderstood, dont want to force their religion on the world and only kill people to protect themselves from victimization by enemies of Islam.
A 14-page document, titled, How Islamist Extremists Quote the Quran, explains the studys analysis of 2,000 instances of propaganda from al-Qaida and other Islamic extremist groups from 1998 to 2011:
We conclude that verses extremists cite from the Quran do not suggest an offensive foe seeking domination and conquest of unbelievers, as is commonly assumed. Instead they deal with themes of victimization, dishonor, and retribution.
Based on this analysis we recommend that the West abandon claims that Islamist extremists seek world domination, focus on counteracting or addressing claims of victimage, emphasize alternative means of deliverance, and work to undermine champion image sought by extremists.
Arizona State Universitys Center for Strategic Communication conducted the study, which was funded by a grant from the Department of Defenses Office of Naval Research.

Evidently Encyclopedia Britannica is wron g.
jihad, also spelled jehad , (struggle, or battle), a religious duty imposed on Muslims to spread Islam by waging war; jihad has come to denote any conflict waged for principle or belief and is often translated to mean holy war.
Islam distinguishes four ways by which the duty of jihad can be fulfilled: by the heart, the tongue, the hand, and the sword.”
Only a US taxpayer funded study could be some completely out of touch with reality.
I was a “returning student” when I was at the State University of NY @ Stony Brook, which does a lot of research. I was amazed at how stupid many of these over-educated undregrads and graduate students were. I mean dumb, not smart enough to come in out of the rain, dumb.
It was an election year, and some of the things that came out of their mouths when discussing presidential politics and government educational funding were really astounding (like the girl who insisted that all education should be free, and people should never be graded on their results.
hmm, so let’s see...I am an American Patriot terrorist.
I wish to destroy this ASU Center because it must be destroyed.
However, I’m just a victim of the ASU center, so while I plan the dirty deed I suggest you focus on my victimhood.
*any words used in this illustration are not to be taken seriously*if the words are taken seriously we demand a boat at the Jefferson Memorial to redress our victimhood.
They wish to destroy anything not approved by Mohammad or approved by the Koran; including you and I.

Curious as to whose Naval were they funded to research with our tax dollars to come up with this Bull Excrement?
Times like this I'm really glad I went to UofA.
The only thing that can be said about the authors of this study is: A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
