Re: "Islam is peace"

I was taught that Islam is the Arabic word for "submission," as in submission to God. True?

It appears to me that the Wahabbists (or at the very least a powerful minority of them) are waging jihad with whomever they disagree. They are just as happy to murder Shia and Sufi as Christians and Jews. They also appear to be hell-bent on forming an existential threat to Western civilization, which concerns me personally. The enormity of what is going on is unfortunately bound to reflect poorly on their co-religionists. I'm striving to be fair-minded with regard to individual Muslims, but I also think we've passed the stage of treating this situation as all a big misunderstanding between well-meaning brethren.
