Q: What does 'Islam' mean?

A: The Arabic word "Islam" means "submission," and it derives from a word meaning "peace." In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of God. "Allah" is the Arabic name for God, which is used by Arab Muslims and Christians alike.
Read a newspaper.

By the way, Isa Davud is not a dweller in the Cellar. He has posted this message all over the place. So don't expect to engage him in any debate here on this topic, or otherwise.

isadawud only wrote the first two lines of this piece. He admits lifting it from a website without crediting this source, which is worth reading because you can consider the author's credibility ... and it has pictures for those who don't want to read.

And for those who say "read a book" Islam Denounces Terrorism, the entire book, is available on that website in .pdf format for free download.
