teachings that extreme Muslims
could use in committing violence
 "The objective of Islamic Jihad is to put an end to the dominance of
the un-Islamic systems of government and replace them with Islamic rule, Islam
intends to bring about this revolution not in one country or in a few countries
but in the entire world. Although initially it is the duty of every member of
the Muslim party to work for revolution wherever he lives the final purpose is
nothing but a world revolution. Any revolutionary ideology which upholds the
good of all mankind, and is not of a mere national unit, cannot limit its
horizons to those of any single country or nation."

 "It is learnt from this Hadith that physical jihad will continue right
till the day of resurrection and will be waged as such in some part or the other
of the world". We do not deny the benefit of waging an academic and

with the tongue, pen, rationale and intellect, the Muslim community cannot be
absolved of the duty of waging physical jihad."

 "Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the
face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam
regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it. Islam requires the
earth-not just a portion, but the whole planet. Towards this end, Islam wishes
to press into service all forces which can bring about a revolution and a
composite term for the use of all these forces is 'Jihad.'
