"Islam means peace"

No, it does not

Ever since 9/11 they have had to re-invent themselves. Prior to then, it was possible to access all manner of intollerant rhetoric advocating and often illustrating violent Jihad, and hatred of others. If it wasn't on a specific website, it was virtually always accessible through links given by that website.

"There is much wisdom to be learned among humans if we would only keep an open mind, and embrace one another"

Yes, keep an "open mind." After all, maybe Islam isn't all death and destruction? Of course it isn't. They have to take a break to rest, and to celebrate their "victories". The beast seen in the picture giving the Nazi salute is Sami Kuntar, who's "victory" consisted of bashing in the skull of a little Jewish girl, after he murdered her father.

The only reason they want you to keep an "open mind" about Islam, is so you won't come to the obvious conclusion that their violent behavior and oppressive belief system is to be shunned, not embraced.

The face Islam presents to the world is a mask concealing a profoundly dark reality. It's not who they are, but who they want you to think they are.

The "peace" of Islam is not the peace of growth, freedom and prosperity; rather it is the peace of the dead.
