Lead: For many Muslims, jihad represents an internal spiritual struggle. For others it is a fight against evil, with the mouth, the pen, the hand and the sword. Over the centuries, this created unavoidable conflict with Christianity.

                Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

                Content: Theologian Charles Kimball points out that one of the tragic misplaced tendencies in religion today is to compare the ideal of one's religion with the worst behavior of other faiths. Yet, much of the conflict in today's world arises out of the conviction of certain proponents of Islam that violent, even terrorist activity against unbelievers is justified.  It is defended as being taught in the Qur’an and permitted by the Prophet Mohammed. This arises in part from the Islamic world view and a complex seemingly contradictory presentation of jihad in the Qur’an.
