Of course Islam is a religion of peace, but it all depends on what their definition of peace is?

We should have learned long ago, during the cold war, that words can sometimes be misused, or have different meanings, depending on who uses them.

To begin, lets examine what Abraham Lincoln said in 1864.  

"We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing.  With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others, the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor."


Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name--liberty.  And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatible names -- liberty and tyranny."


Here's a article from the Stars & Stripe's newspaper I received while station in England during the cold war.


The question that begs us today,
is do Muslims really want peace?
