I just encountered some washroom

I just encountered some washroom stall grafitti -- the first I've ever seen at here at work. What struck me as the strangest thing about it -- and this seems a little odd in retrospect -- was that it was there at all. But nearly as jolting was what was written: "Jihad!"

Someone, apparently, feels the need to issue a call to holy war from the seated comfort of the men's washroom. Against whom? That question was answered a few minutes later when I noticed that the toilet paper dispenser was neatly labelled with "Infidels!"

I did a quick scan for more messages on my way back to my office, but, unless "EXIT" was meant as an imperative towards unbelievers, I think that was it.
