A DIFFERENT VIEW OF PEACE


"Islam, we’ve been told, is related to the Arabic word

meaning "peace." This is correct, except that the

word means a particular kind of peace. A better

translation is "surrender" or "submission." It

describes the peace when a vanquished soldier lays

down his arms in submission. And so the very name,

Islam, has militaristic connotations, and in this

lies the root of radical Islam. That root then grows

in the soil of the Islamic worldview."
