Islam as a "Religion of Peace"

Islam as a "Religion of Peace" is vastly over rated. Christianity has as one of its basic tenants, "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar and unto God that which is God's" and "Do not cast your pearls before swine."

Christianity recognizes, or should if the Bible is followed, the authority of the civil government over the affairs of this world (those of the physical body) while leaving the affairs of the soul to religious law. It also calls for believers to offer up their beliefs to unbelievers and if they are not interested not to bother them further.

This is a far cry from Islam's insistence that the bizarre set of rules set by someone calling himself a Prophet of Allah should govern everyone's life here on earth and that if you will not "believe", "true believers" are duty bound to kill you.

The "War of Terror" is simply a half hearted response to a global war by Radical Islam (which by the way means anyone who follows the Koran/Qran/Quaran). Terror is a method used by Islamofacists to wage war, thus the War on Terror could be equated to an earlier War on Blitzkrieg or War on Kamikaze.

Interesting, isn't it.
