Iran - Spreading Islamic Revolution

That's what Iran's new leader wants to do.

TEHRAN (Agencies): Iran’s president elect Mahmood Ahmadinejad hailed his election triumph as a new Islamic revolution that could spread throughout the world, in a shift away from previously moderate post-vote rhetoric. “Thanks to the blood of the martyrs, a new Islamic revolution has arisen and the Islamic revolution of 1384 (the current Iranian year) will, if God wills, cut off the roots of injustice in the world,” the IRNA agency quoted the ultra-conservative as saying. “The era of oppression, hegemonic regimes, tyranny and injustice has reached its end,” he said, in an apparent reference to Iran’s arch-foe the United States. “The wave of the Islamic revolution will soon reach the entire world.”

Now if I remember correctly the Muslim world went crazy when Bush used the word "crusade" in regards to the war on terror. But it's ok for them to call for an "Islamic revolution"? Sounds like jihad to me.
