German Gov’t Launches ‘Mein Jihad’ Video To Kill Prejudice Against Word [VIDEO]

Jacob Bojesson | Foreign Correspondent

The German government has released a video titled “Mein Jihad” to put a positive spin on the word often associated with radical Islam.

The video’s title resembles the name of Adolf Hitler’s autobiography “Mein Kampf,” German for “My Struggle,” and even starts off by explaining that “jihad” literally translates to “kampf” in German.

The video then goes on to explain that most Islamic scholars agree that jihad hasn’t been around since the 16th century, and that it is “not a license for unrestricted killing.”

The woman behind the video, a German Muslim girl, also describes how her jihad starts “by getting up in the morning and following the call to prayer.”

The video is created by Germany’s Federal Political Education Agency. (RELATED: German University President Floats Idea Of Mandatory Arabic In Primary Schools)

Another campaign aimed at combatting the growing Islamophobia in Germany is taking over billboards in the capital of Berlin. The campaign is partially funded with government grants and tells people to work “with humanity toward your dark side.”

The billboards show a German flag with the color black bleeding out. The campaign plans to put up 600 large posters throughout the country, and supply 20,000 stickers and 45,000 postcards by March 24.
