    1. a holy war undertaken as a sacred duty by Muslims.
    1. any vigorous, emotional crusade for an idea or principle.

    The author stated it was a muslim word.  She did not 'admit it was insensitive' just said she shouldn't have used it because people would get all over her case, and specifically stated she meant no offense towards muslims.

    Good lord, are we to be forbidden to use any word that didn't come directly from anglo-saxon roots?  Any word taken from another culture is automatically racist?

    While I might agree that the diary is pointless, there are far too many people on this site of late deliberately looking to be offended, seeing racism or sexism everywhere.

      so it's not really pointless
