"Islam" is not about peace it is about submission! There is a world of difference! When people are bowed and cowering and humiliated and defeated, sure......there will be 'peace' as in the absence of war. This is most clearly illustrated by Quran 9:29 and the 'humiliated' bit is in the following verse.
Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled. (Quran 9:29)
It should be abundantly clear that this verse is 'a-contextual' in that it does not rely in the immediate historical context to derive it's true meaning.
The next verse makes clear how "Islam" is not peaceful in it's attitude to non Muslims, especially Christians and Jews "People of the book".
The Jews say, "Ezra is the son of Allah "; and the Christians say, "The Messiah is the son of Allah ." That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded? (Quran 9:30)
Please digest this and make your considered response known to Fox news... because when Fox gets it wrong... it's realllllly wrong! and be afraid... be very afraid.
THIS is the next day from when the above entry was posted....now I'm writhing in emotional and intellectual agony, screaming loudly at Bill O'Reilly for his woeful lack of knowledge about Islam, and his claim that "I can't imagine Prophet Mohammad wanting a war with the world about his faith".... I strongly advise you to READ the next entry in this blog (The Pathway and Problems that lead to Pegida )for a full expose' of Bills tragically infantile lack of comprehension of basic Islam.
