Understanding It– Hudna and other terms

What follows is a link to a brilliant article describing terms that the Western media uses from Arabic to describe interactions between Islamo-fascist societies and non-Islamic societies.  These terms, like hudna, jihad, etc. are often poorly understood by those that use them (in the West) and have long historical and cultural meanings that color their real significance.
I recommend this article highly:by Denis MacEoin in the Middle East Quarterly.
