Word Byte: The Islamic Meaning of Peace

In my reading and researching I often come across really great comments from “regular joes” out there, freedom-loving people who have their eye on the Islamic threat that so many, many people want to ignore, dodge and evade. Occasionally, I would like to post some of these comments. Sometimes I don’t have a link to credit back to the person who made the comment. In that case I would just use whatever name they posted under and the place I saw the comment.

From poster “tkwtkwtkw” at You Tube:

In Arabic, “Embrace Islam and you shall have peace” is simply a two-word pun: “Aslam taslam”, which most literally means “Submit, have peace.” In fact, perpetual warfare — that is, jihad — has been the true legacy of Muhammad’s philosophy since the beginning.
