  Jihad, Holy War - The Peace Encyclopedia
In early Islamic history "jihad" meant holy war, and, as a strictly Islamic phenomenon, it bears a strict relation to the spread of the faith by Muslims arms...among the descendants of the Kharijits...it was ranked as a sixth pillar of religion.
Jihad "Holy war", a Divine institution of warfare to extend Islam into the dar al-harb (the non-Islamic territories which are described as the "abode of struggle", or of disbelief) or to defend Islam from danger.
Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you.

The E-Jihad (also referred to as "eJihad", "JIHAD!!" or simply "jihad") has a long and illustrious history spanning at least 100 years.
It is from religious flame wars that can escalate to such extremes as kidnapping, mailbombing, posting people's email addresses where spammers can find them and denial of service attacks.
Hackers who belong to the Islamic Terrorist movement typically form the largest group of people involved in the E-jihad, performing DDOS (distributed denial of service) attacks against those who don't belong to their country, faith, or what have you.

 Jihad   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
For example, a scholarly study of Islam is an intellectual struggle that some may refer to as "jihad", though it is not common for a scholar of Islam to refer to his studies as "engaging in jihad".
In this sense, defensive jihad is no different from the right of armed resistance against occupation that is sanctioned under the UN and International Law.
Mainstream Muslim scholars disagree with the militant Islamist approach to these matters, and have held that martyrdom operations are equivalent to the sin of suicide, that killing civilians is a sin, and that the sunnah permits neither.

 Encyclopedia Of The Palestinians: Biography of Khalil al-Wazir (Abu Jihad)
Nevertheless, Abu Jihad remained close to his fighters; avoiding the lure of Beirut, he established his headquarters in Kayfun, near Alayh in Mount Lebanon.
Unlike other PLO leaders, Abu Jihad did not allow the Lebanese environment to discredit his role within the movement; he was never tainted by the massive corruption and thuggery that swept the ranks of PLO officials.
Unfortunately for Arafat, Abu Jihad did not distinguish himself in the 1982 invasion of Lebanon, in which top PLO leaders retreated in the face of massive Israeli force.
