Our dear Seamus and beating a dead horse

Reader comment on item: "Islam" Does Not Mean "Peace"
in response to reader comment: Quit beating your dead horse

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Jun 29, 2007 at 06:48

I never have a debate about Islam and the dangers of Islam and the lies and deceit of muslims (as in the case of our dear damsel who does not know any Arabic but still have the audacity to come here and tell us that the word islam means peace because islam provides peace to Muslims!) with another potential dhimmi and potential jizzya payer like me like Seamus, because I like to save my energy for our real enemy and that is Islam and Islamists.

...

Notice also that Dr. Pipes seems to agree that the word islam has nothing to do with the word salam except that both words come from the same root: SLM. And yes there is no evidence in Arabic language ma3ajim and qawamees (Dictionaries) or in the Muslim masora that at any stage the Muslim 3Ulama stated that the word islam has anything to do with the word salam except their common root SLM. So if I can find, in an Arabic dictionary, that the word islam really means peace I will change my mind until then the word islam has nothing to do with the word salam.

Now let us see by his same logic millions of Christian Arabs and Jews that come from Arab countries and those of us that study Arabic and the history of Islam and include here Dr. Pipes must be Muslims in a state of taqiya because we all know our Arabic!

I ask the readers: Is this logical?

This is as absurd as it can get. But again I will leave his remarks to the readers to judge him!

And let me repeat it one more time:

1. The word islam means surrender to Allah.

2. The word salam means peace

3. Both words come the same root SLM but each word belong to a different stem and this is where it all ends.
