News flash! Islam does not mean peace!
[...] Islam “referred to an attribute of manliness and described someone who was heroic and brave in battle” and who would “fight to the death” against “impossible odds.”
[...] “Islam,” the word known to Muhammad, pre-dates “Islam” the religion, as written and elaborated upon by later Muslim scholars. Muhammad’s warrior definition of Islam, a very Bedouin concept, springs from the eye-for-an-eye code of his Arab nomadic culture. It is also very useful for spreading an ideology by force.
