Jihad means defensive war? An Islamic website does not think so

Some months back even officials from Obama administration stated Jihad is a legitimate concept in Islam with out giving any definition of 'Jihad'; probably they were thinking it means spiritual struggle or defensive warfare but never a war against non-Muslims and to impose Islamic law on the world. But those who have read Islamic concept of Jihad and lived Islam knew what it means.

Dokku Abu Usman is often referred to as Osama Bin Laden of Russia and is  self-declared emir (president) of Russian North Caucasus. He says, in an interview to an Islamic website:
The path has been chosen, we know our tasks, and we will not turn back, Insha'Allah, from this path. Today, the battlefield is not just Chechnya and the Caucasus Emirate, but also the whole Russia. The situation is visible to everybody who has eyes. The Jihad is spreading, steadily and inevitably, everywhere......
For the first time in decades, the awakening of the Islamic Ummah from hibernation has become so clear and widespread. The Mujahideen and true scholars operate more than ever simultaneously in different regions of the globe, supporting each other and realizing the common goal. Ordinary Muslims take to the streets and express their support for the Mujahideen, demanding to restore the Sharia......
The only thing I can say for certain is that if there are no armed force of Muslims, no Jihad and no fighting, nobody would allow us to establish the Sharia of Allah. If it were possible, it would have been done already by our Prophet (pbuh).
