Islam is a religion of peace. Strangely enough, that is a political article of faith that no one has been allowed to question publicly since Islamic terrorists killed thousands in attacks on New York and Washington two years ago.

Enslaving Jews and Christians was considered a merciful alternative to execution. Through murder and coercion, Islam was successful in extinguishing all other religions from Arabia in a short period of time.
