> Number one everyone is born Muslim.

Wrong. If you want to pontificate on everyone's status is, at birth, then at best you can only say everyone was born atheist, knowing nothing. But then the parents inculcate whatever religion they want (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism) into their children as they grow up.

> Let me explain..Islam derives from the word peace. etc Salam,Sholom, Al'Salama Al'Lkum all mean peace or peace be unto you in Arabic,Swahili or Hebrew.

I think you are wrong on this one. I will let Dhimmi no more correct you on that.

> So everyone was born muslim but everyone don't follow Islam, even if they say they do.

If you want to claim that everyone is born muslim then you need to prove that every baby has knowledge of allah at birth. Good luck proving that. I for sure had NO knowledge of allah at all way back then.
