TEDTalks [electronic resource]: Bobby Ghosh - Why Global Jihad Is Losing

TED Conferences LLC
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Throughout the history of Islam, says journalist Bobby Ghosh, there have been two sides to jihad: one internal - a personal struggle to be better - and the other external. A small minority (most recently, Osama bin Laden) has appropriated the second, using it as an excuse for deadly global violence against "the West." In this TEDTalk, Ghosh suggests that now that bin Laden's worldwide organization has fragmented, it's time to reclaim the word.
