Isn't the word "Islam" supposed to mean "peace" when translated to English?
Yet, can someone name any examples of Islam being at peace (or Co-Existing peacefully) with other religions in Islam's 1,400-year history?
For example, the Christian Crusades in 1095A.D. were a counter-attack against the Islamic Invasions into Western Europe (i.e. Spain, France, & Italy) in 630A.D.
Second, has Islam ever had peace with Israel even when the Jews and Jerusalem lived there thousands of years before Islam and Mohammad even existed?
Thirdly, hasn't Islam always been at war even with itself, e.g. Sunnis versus Shiites?
MEANING OF ISLAM: *Submit* to Allah (God) and you will have Peace.
This in contrast to, *Submit* to Allah (God) and you will have Eternal Hell. Which, by the way, is not a good way to attract followers to any religion, or in this case, a cult.
If you look at the routes of the Crusades, you will see the starting location for the Crusades (and many of the battles) were in Middle Europe and Mediterranean Europe.
Hence, the battles of the Crusades, being faught in central and eastern Europe shows the Crusades were retaliation for Islamic invasion.
This is a complete 180 from what is the liberal slant in history books and the mainstream media that paint Christianity as the aggressor (and extremist) as opposed to the defender.
In other words, the Spanish inquisition saved the entire region from being taken over by Islamic rule. It was a brutal but quintessentially heroic act in history that saw the sacrifice of millions of people to exterminate Islam fully and completely from the land. It took them nearly 400 years. Imagine the sheer volume of muslims in the country for it to take almost four centuries to get rid of them.
While many historians like to point to the Spanish Inquisition as Extremist Christianity, yet the word, "spanish" in the name, Spanish Inquisition, shows Islamists had to have invaded and conquered Spain (i.e., the Iberian Peninsula).
Furthermore, taking a look at the historical timeline, the Great Crusades that repelled the Islamists from Europe
ended around the year 1291 while the official start by the Pope of the "inquisitors of heretical depravity" started about 60 years earlier in the year 1,231. Ferdinand and Isabella continued this Inquisition in the year 1478 that is named the Spanish Inquisition.
Hence, historians, again, fail to see the Big Picture of the Spanish Inquisition and ultimately get the whole original purpose of it wrong. E.g. anyone who disagreed with The Church including Jews.
That is, just like Europe had to be rid of the Nazis and Hitler via WW1, WW2, and the Nuremberg Trials, the People of Europe long ago had to be rid of Islam and the Prophet Mohammed via the Three Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition.
While some say it is Christian Extremism, The Spanish Inquisition was created to avoid the previous two hundred plus of years of war with Muslims (Islamists) invading Europe.
