|English term or phrase: come jihad|
|As for KEVIN's more unorthodox programs of direct action, Millat was right in there, he was their greatest asset, he was in the forefront, the first into battle come jihad, cool as fuck in a crisis, a man of action, like Brando, like Pacino, like Liotta.|
Need your help with this "come jihad". Thank you.
|English translation:when jihad occurred (he was first into battle)|
come is often used in the subjunctive, with the subject inverted, to mean "when (a specified time or event) occurs" eg come evening
jihad = a holy war which is fought by Muslims against people who are a threat to the Islamic religion or who oppose its teachings
