Islam may have started out peaceful while Mohammed was in Mecca, but once he moved to Medina and got an army, he became very war-like and morphed Islam into an Arab male superiority club.

While the word Islam is derived from a word meaning peace, peace for radical Muslims means having the world ruled under sharia where the rules are so strict that no one dares to disobey or criticize them.

That is what is meant by peace. Many moderate Muslims are evidently unaware of this, or they simply reject it, as Robert Spencer would say.
