Jihad can be translated to mean "struggle" or "inner struggle." Mein Kampf, Hitler's book, means "My Struggle." More about U.S. taxes later.
What did the Jews, gypsies, and gays have to do with Adolf Hitler having to struggle? And Hitler had a pretty darn good life, much of his success on the backs of the lives of Jews, gypsies, and gays; with the help of Henry Ford, du Pont, American bankers, and German war corporations.
And the Moslem clerics who shout out about "Jihad," which they interpret to mean terror and war against the West, live a pretty comfortable material lifestyle. No big struggle for the imums and political shouters.
In the U.S. we have the poor, struggling millionaires and billionaires fighting to keep their taxes low or non-existent.
One thing permeates those who preach Jihad and struggle: greed. Hitler promised and delivered great wealth for the war corporations in Nazi Germany. The Jihadists promise life-sacrificing believers that they will be serviced by scores of virgins in heaven. And the richest Americans tell us that low taxes for the wealthy and corporations will create jobs and improve the economy. Greed, greed, greed.
The wealthy Americans often add a little evangelical topping to their promises. It is as though God will provide special favors for those who believe and support. You will have a special place in heaven if you believe the religious mumbo-jumbo of the wealthy right and give them tax breaks in the process.
Greed, greed, greed. And religion is a favorite tactic to fool, steal, and cheat the poorer classes.
How is your greed-capitalist God workin' out for ya, bunkie?
