MUST-READS FOR TODAY: I usually don't link to blogposts without giving some context or commenting myself, but here are some things you should read today: Brian Ulrich has a story on the struggle of Afghan Hindus, and he also fisks Martin Kramer.

Dan Darling has an excellent analysis on the situation in Saudi Arabia. And finally, Aziz has a post on the meaning of jihad and the abuse of the term. He also links to an older comment piece written by him, and one I'm glad I have read, on what terrorism really is; harabah, and not jihad; making the perpetrators of terrorism harabists and not jihadists. From now on, I will refer to calls for jihad by bin Laden and ilk as hirabah and refer to those who answer the call as harabists.
