Religon of Peace?

Within a few hundred years after the birth of Christ, the entire Middle East was Christian.  There have been Christians in Mosul, Iraq almost from the beginning until just recently.  People try to tell us that Islam is a religion of peace.  They are wrong.

In every nation where the majority of the population is Muslim, Islam discriminates against Christianity and all other religions.  In every Islamist nation, like our ally Saudi Arabia, it is illegal to preach Christ, to build a church, to convert to Christianity.  Doing any of these things will likely result in a penalty of death.

That does not sound like a religion of peace to me.  It sounds like a religion that is intolerant of any other religious belief.  It sounds like a religion that teaches death is better than allowing other people to worship as they see fit.  Practitioners of the religion of peace have killed or forced out every Christian from Mosul.  This is the first time in over a thousand years there will be no Christians there.  We need to stop fooling ourselves that ISIS and similar groups have a ideology that will allow them to coexist with the West; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
