Top Definition
used as slang by troops in Iraq to describe an Iraqi citizen. Usually used in an offensive context. Also spelled Hajji, because noone can make up thier minds which is correct.
Hadji is actually a term of respect for muslims who have made the piligrmage to Mecca and completed the "Hajj". Those who have completed the Hajj often have Hajj added as a prefix to thier name when being formally addressed.
I don't trust those fucking hadjis, they wave at you one day and shoot at you the next.

During Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2003, US Marines Stationed at Camp Coyote (Iraq/Kuwait Border) used the term to distinguise between the enemy and friendly forces.

Because Kuwait has a majority of its population from India for its labor force, Hadji was used to identify the Indians (Friends) from the Muslims.

This word originated from the cartoon character 'Hadji' from the 1964 television cartoon series 'Jonny Quest'. Hadji was a dark-skinned, turban wearing, south-indian sidekick. As Hadji was Jonny Quest's companion, so were the Indian workers that provided camp labor support; including cooking, laundry, waste removal, etc.

As new troops began to arrive in Kuwait, they saw the original troops calling "dark-skin people" Hadji and assumed the term was meant for ALL people in the region.

After the start of the war, "Hadji" became the new derogatory slur for the enemy by April 2003.

The term was later changed again to identify all Muslims in the area after the inital invasion ended and new replacement troops began to occupy the region.

In soccer: to punt the ball as hard as you can towards an open and easy goal, only to find your strike sailing over the crossbar by a country mile and ending up forty-one rows behind the goal. The higher the ball goes, the louder one should exclaim.
