...As used by the conspirators in this case, the term "jihad" meant defending Islam against its enemies through violence and armed aggression, including, if necessary, by using murder to expel non-believers from Muslim holy lands...

The article goes on to state that according to witnesses (plural) Kassir supported Bin Laden but does not say whether he believed Bin Laden responsible for 9/11 at the time nor anything about supporting terrorism outside of Muslim Holy lands.

I am assuming Kassir is this guy interviewed in The Asian tribune a long while ago

...While denying involvement in the London bombings, the man said that the suicide bombers who attacked three underground trains and a bus were “martyrs,” adding that he hoped also to become a martyr one day.

“They are not terrorists, as they are doing what Islam requires,” he said.

Sweden, he said, is not threatened by al-Qaeda, although he told Expressen that this could change if the Swedish government handed him over to the British or American authorities.

“If Sweden hands me over to another country then it will only have itself to blame. Sweden will then be punished with the greatest punishment.”
