The arabic word "Fitna" roughly means "disorder." It famously appears in Kuran 8:39, which instructs muslims to fight till "all fitna has been subdued, and the only religion is of Allah." This has been understood by all 4 schools of sunni jurisprudence (Shafi, Hanafi, Hanbali, Maliki) to mean that muslims are obligated to fight kafirs till all of them convert to Islam.
Dutch MP Geert Wilders has made a movie called Fitna, which shows the Kuranic verses terrorists frequently cite in support of their actions. It can be watched here:
It is quite short (18 minutes) and well worth the watch.
