Agape versus Jihad

Jihad is holy war against infidels. Agape (agapazomenoi) means to treat with affection. No a priori connection need exist between the subject and object of the affection. It is used in contrast to philia (an affection arising from friendship, brotherhood or other contexts of a non-sexual nature) and eros, an affection of a sexual nature.

They started to explain that they weren't very religious at all, when they were interrupted by their own little kid. He shouted defiantly saying in effect: No! We are Christians.

The following video is from a program on SVT:
