in response to reader comment: islam Means Peace?

Dear Dr Pipes,

The argument that Islam is religion of peace and terrorists are not true Muslims never dies. Most recently on your forum it was presented by our friend Sharon from the UK. This argument can never be defeated until we recognize that it is circular and absurd. Until you kill yourself and tens of other people in a suicide bombing, you are a true and good Muslim but the moment you kill some one you become an untrue Muslim. Both before and after, Islam remains the religion of peace.
