Muslims fail their own
Paul Wolfowitz comments on the lack of response from the Islamic world to the December tsunami.
There’s been very little generosity so far from parts of the Muslim world that are big on talking about jihad and other things, but when 200,000 people — all of them Muslim in the case of Indonesia — died in this catastrophe, there’s not much help forthcoming,” Wolfowitz said.
Jihad is a broad term in Islam and generally means a struggle for the benefit of the Islamic community. It can be anything from an internal struggle to be a better Muslim, to a violent conflict in defense of the faith.
