Why is Islam called the "religion of peace?"
Dan Miller's Blog ^ | July 6, 2013 | Dan Miller

Posted on 07/06/2013 1:43:02 PM PDT by DanMiller

Because of collective ignorance, stupidity and fantasy.

Some may have read about the recent "honor killings" of two young girls in Pakistan. They had inflicted a great stain upon the honor of their family by dancing happily in the rain. Here is a video presented yesterday at PJ Media's Trifecta.

To refer to the perpetrators of such crimes as subhuman is to dishonor apes and rattlesnakes. However, that seems to be a far from universal view, even in the United States and Formerly Great Britain.

Pat Condell recently had this to say about the religion of peace:

Anjem Choydary is a "peace loving" Islamist who

is urging his followers [in England] to sign up as recruits to the newly-launched Islamic Emergency Defence — which vows to create a network of “task forces” to redress wrongs and mete out instant justice.

He also seems to enjoy converting young Brits to Islam. He had this to say in 2011:

Islam also continues to bring the beauties of true peace to Nigeria, where

Islamic militants attacked a boarding school before dawn Saturday, dousing a dormitory in fuel and lighting it ablaze as students slept, survivors said. At least 30 people were killed in the deadliest attack yet on schools in Nigeria’s embattled northeast.

Authorities blamed the violence on Boko Haram, a radical group whose name means “Western education is sacrilege.” The militants have been behind a series of recent attacks on schools in the region, including one in which gunmen opened fire on children taking exams in a classroom.

. . . .

Islamic militants from Boko Haram and breakaway groups have killed more than 1,600 civilians in suicide bombings and other attacks since 2010, according to an Associated Press count.

Here is another interesting video from 2011 by Andrew Klavan. Satire? Probably, but it makes more and more sense as we enter mid-2013.

Finally, here is a new video at Latma TV about the Obama-Kerry "peace process." Unfortunately, the subtitles are often difficult to read.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chEFZvTBWgM?feature=player_detailpage]

The Peace process is, of course, a stroke of genius for those who worship at the feet of our historic President Osama Obama the Humble, always the brightest person in any room he honors with his presence.

obama1_unicorn_fantasy

Perhaps the Islamists who want only peace, happiness and tranquility for everyone would like to ride President Obama's favorite unicorn. It would be only fitting and proper to give them that opportunity. They might laugh at President Obama, kill his unicorn and enjoy eating its heart, but no matter. Obama has many more unicorns and Islamists are already laughing behind our backs as they stuff our money in their pockets and bank accounts. While slim, the chances of success are at least as great as for His efforts finally to redeem His Nobel Peace Prize from the ashes of infamy uncontrollable laughter.

However, none of this can be our problem, so let's just continue calling our peace-loving allies whatever pleases them while we fund their noble humanitarian efforts to bring peace in our time. At least that's probably the view of my esteemed occasional guest author, Senator Ima Librul from the great state of Confusion Utopia, a great fan of Our Dear Leader.

Because of a poor translation of Submission to Peace.

Linguists with political agendas.

Just like Please does NOT mean Por Favor. Peace in Islam is NOT Peace in English.

“Why is Islam called the “religion of peace?”

Because it is enemy propaganda. A brief study of history reveals they are nothing of the sort.

"religion of peace"

It's called that because if you don't call it that, they'll kill you.

Reminds me of a line on an old sitcom: "If there's no problem, why is everybody saying 'no problem'?

I was talking to someone more liberal about Ft. Hood. She is not convinced that Islam is inspiring terrorism. Regarding Ft. Hood specifically, I told her that the shooter shouted “Allah Ahkbar” (sp?) but she didn’t think that was evidence that he shot up the place due to radical Islamic thinking.

Her conclusion is that just because so many terrorists are Muslim, that it doesn’t mean that all Muslims are terrorists. True, that not all Muslims are terrorists. But she refuses to consider that anyone is inspired by Islam.

On the other hand, this same person blames a form of radical Christianity for killings of abortion doctors.

On the one hand, she is ok with indicting Christianity for attacks against abortion providers, but not ok with indicting Islam with terror done in the name of Islam, freely admitted to by those who carry out such acts. Go figure.

"Go figure."

The woman you describe is actually very typical among liberals. Their sense of being tolerant towards minorities makes it impossible for them to see the plain facts about Islamic terrorism, yet their disdain for Christianity makes them equate one or two abortionist-murderers with the entirety of Christianity.

I have a politically-incorrect saying: "Everybody needs a n*gger," someone to feel superior to, and that includes liberals. Their n*ggers are Christians and conservatives and Republicans. Earlier today someone posted a piece from Daily Kos in which the author claimed that conservatives were not human, and he seemed to mean it literally. Remember how the libs said Palin wasn't a woman and Clarence Thomas wasn't black? A basic denial of their humanity.

Notice how much good it did him? Muslims STILL reviled him, just as libs reviled him despite his civility and (public, at least) respect for those who disagreed with his policies.

Bingo. And not the first Cripplecreek post that’s hit the nail on the head.

One must understand that the world doesn’t see things from the American perspective: And never will.

In English it’s translated to “Peace”. But thats not the word at all. It’s “Submission”.

And furthermore Witness 8 (That Haitian girl that looks like she swallowed a toilet seat) didn’t think “Cracker” was racist, because we allow the term “Reverse Racism”. To races outside of the White, “Racism” is ONLY something that comes from Whites and is against ________ . So that girl knows Racism ONLY exists as “Anything bad towards blacks”. That is their definition.

Islam defines peace as submission. Submitting to the will of Allah, Mohammed, and the Imams and Kings that rule them. Their will is not to be questioned. Peace reigns. Peace can not be found when there is any “rocking the boat” on the planet.

If you want to try to wrap your head around this evil concept, look no further than Banking. In Judeo-christian banking, a “dollar” (Or currency) is a symbol of your efforts. In Sharia a dollar is a symbol of your position. When you see those arabs who have gold plated Audis - Remember, “Money” was not paid for that to happen. It was not billed, nor was it collected. It was “owed” to the royalty who requested it. The royalty may or may not provide the means to the gold, the plating equipment, or the even the car. The fact that a car was requested was enough to make the car paid for.

On the international stage, Royalty is treated to fee-free fanfare as a result of state-to-state relationships. The embassy makes sure all these nice things are laid out for their royalty.

Why is Islam called the "religion of peace?"

Because George Bush didn't want Americans to take out their anger on "US" Muslims after 9/11. He said it while the ruins were still smoking.

From Wiki... The article appears to be a battleground for different views. The Arabic term Islam (إسلام) is derived from aslama, which means "to surrender" or "resign oneself".[6][7] The Arabic word salaam (سلام) ("peace") shares the same abstract consonantal root with the word Islam.[8] This has led to a widespread misinterpretation that the word Islam means peace.

Yes, me too, that’s why I blame him. And I do, most sincerely. I’m not saying Bush did a bad job after 9/11, I’m not going to really judge that; but too much of his message was “Islam is a religion of peace, all is well, keep shopping”.

It should have been more along the lines of “there are forces that wish to detroy our way of life, we will not let this happen; Islamism will never triumph”.

Islam was never on my radar, I called it Mohamadism until I saw “Islam” given as a correct answer on Jeopardy when I was quite grown up.

On that dreadful day we had the mom of my very good friend staying with us, since neither daughter could get to her. She was a very, very liberal democrat woman, a proud Adlai Stevenson voter. I will NEVER forget her saying as we watched the TV that night “I was always taught that the point of Islam was to spread Islam at the point of the sword.”

The poor woman was quite old and actually died before the end of that year. I always felt that she didn’t think she could face what was coming.

Islam is NOT a religion of peace, it has large factions that are our sworn enemies, they know this, they proclaim this, I don’t know why we continue to deny it.

And by “we” clearly I don’t mean freepers, I mean some liberals, all leftists, and way too many Jews, RINOs and other “elitists”.

Islam worships killing and death- what is more peaceful than a cemetery, or a battlefield full of dead people? Desolation is peaceful. A barren, dead world is ‘peaceful’.

You got it.
When Islam RULES the world, then there will be ‘Peace.’

No need to use the sword in the west to convert.
Islamists are infiltrating everything, from town to U.S. adminisrations, text books, etc.

In the 1990’s, a spokesman said Islam is not here in the U.S. to be equal to other faiths, but to dominate, and the Qu’ran will be the only Holy Book.’

We need to remember that Islam is a political ideology with a religious component.

I heard an Iman answer this question. The phrase "Islam is peace" is not defining Islam. It is defining PEACE.

To say 'Islam is peace' is to say 'the result of implementing Islamic law is peace'. To this, they add the phrase, 'no justice, no peace'. According to the Iman, without Sharia law, there can be no peace.

Actually, the real reason is that Muslims designate Islam as the “religion of peace”. In doing this they are not lying in the sense of asserting something they know to be untrue. The problem is that the Islamic conception of peace is severely flawed and not even approximately coextensive with the Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or modern secularist conception of peace (all of which are approximately coextensive).

In Semitic languages, the consonants of a word are its root. Thus Islam = submission and Salam = peace share the root slm and are thus conceptually related to an Arabic speaker, and this relation becomes almost an identification in Islamic thought. The only peace Islam knows is the peace of submission, the peace between master and slave, between conqueror and conquered. Peace treaties as understood by the rest of the world are unknown in Islamic law: they are (theoretically) unnecessary between Muslims and forbidden between Muslims and non-Muslims — the best approximation permitted under Sharia being a “hudna” (pause or ceasefire) of at most ten years duration, which Muslims may breach at any time.

So, if one accepts the twisted Mohammedan misconception of peace as the true understanding of peace, Islam is, indeed the religion of peace. If one has a nobler conception of peace, the whole notion is rubbish.
