muslim is right, Islam is a religion of peace except for a few wars. From 623AD to 777AD only 154 years and 84 wars. From 1980 to 1989AD Iraq and Iran wage a war with 2 million Muslim killed. From 2004 to 2008, Shiites and Sunnies battle with each other in Iraq, with hundreds of thousands of Muslims killed.
Now is that not a religion of peace?
