What Does Jihadist Mean?

The word 'Jihadist' does not exist in Islam nor Arabic. The word was coined up by the media:

Jihadist should be a translation of an Arabic word pronounced "Jihady" only there is no such a word in either Arabic or Islam... [The Lies About Muhammad - Mustafa Zayed, 2010, p.18-19]
