‘Islam is NOT a religion of peace’ – US Republican backs Pope

The Campaign on American-Islamic Relations is encouraging its supporters to respond to a piece by Frank Lasee, a Republican representative on the Wisconsin State Assembly, who wrote:

“The Pope’s comments were right on the mark. Islam is NOT a religion of peace. It doesn’t have a peaceful history of co-existence. And has created empires whose main goal was to convert or destroy all non-believers. Islam IS a religion intent on conquering the world. This global domination is preached and encouraged by Imams in mosques. And it is a central theme in the Koran, the Islamic Bible, and is an important part of their history.”
