'Mein Jihad': German Govt's Propaganda Unit Funds Pro-Jihad Infomercial
by Oliver Lane
The Federal political education agency which inherited Nazi-era Joseph Goebbels's state propaganda machine has released a new video encouraging young Muslim women in Germany to pursue jihad.
Entitled 'Mein Jihad', the video opens by translating jihad into German, calling it 'Anstrengung', or 'Kampf' — literally Mein Kampf, or 'my struggle' — and works to put a positive spin on the global phenomenon of jihad.
Claiming the points made are agreed on by "most Muslim scholars", the video states even in the seventh century "the jihad was not a license for unrestricted killing", and that the last jihad ended in the 16th century.
