Jordanian Jihadists

Jordanian blogger Hareega objects to the use of the word Jihadist in news reports. “My first objection was to the word ‘Jihadist’, I rarely ever heard it in Arabic. I know there's Jihad, but a ‘Jihadist’ is now synonymous with terrorist, again misuse of words that will make Muslims angry,” he writes after reading a newspaper article on Jordanian Jihadists in Iraq.
