"But whether or not it is jihad can only be decided by the State."

Wouldn't it be better to change Islam? I always thought it was a bit shortsighted to suggest that Mohammed was the Seal of the Prophets. What about Paracelsus? What about young Gerrard Winstanley? Can we not interpret the diggers as trying to institute the Umma despite lacking all the scriptural references of the Koran? Certainly, English protestants greeted the publication of the Koran in translation with the commendation that it was an attempt to reform the true religion even if it failed.
