Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]
in response to reader comment: LET'S START OVER. DON'T HATE ISLAM.

Submitted by Abu Nudnik (Canada), Sep 13, 2006 at 10:25

Islam does not mean peace: it means submission. It only means peace in the sense that peace comes with submission. When that means peace comes with submission to the will of God, that's not a problem; not only Muslims believe that.

Jews believe following the commandments is doing the will of God, Christians believe that bearing their own personal cross is doing the will of God and all believe peace comes out of that. But if by submission to the will of God means doing the bidding of those who set themselves up as Gods themselves, as religious authorities in and of themselves, we are talking about usurpers of God, we are talking about men who stand between man and God. We are talking about evil monsters who must be destroyed without the slightest pity.
