You wrote the following gems

>islam literally means peace

Bogus. Islam literally means Surrender to (Allah) and nothing about peace

The fact that word Islam and word salam share the same Arabic root SLM this is where is ends and this little gem betrays your total ignorance of Arabic grammar so here is your lesson for today:

1. The word yislam (yif3al) means he becomes a Muslim and from the same stem yif3al we will have the word Islam or surrender to (Allah)

2. The word yusalim (yufa3il) means he greets or provides peace and from the same stem yufa3il which is a very different stem we have the word salam or peace

So repeat after me islam means surrender to Allah and salam means peace and the two words come from different stems but come from the same root SLM. So much for your poor Arabic.

> Mujjahidin

Your command of Arabic grammar is very patheitc. There is only one Jeem in the word Mujahidiin and this is the plural for the word: Mujahid which means holy warrior

So are you a holy warrior our dear Mujjahidin (sic) or is your arabic that poor and you wanted to say Mujtahid instead?

And shame on you for claiming that you know Arabic when you do not. Well islam is the religion of the arabs only and you ain't one.
