Thinking of appeasing your Muslim friends and neighbors by calling Islam the “religion of peace?” Be careful. You may end up inadvertently angering them, according to Wisconsin-based businessman Paul Nehlen.
“We’re out there saying Islam is the religion of peace, and they’ve read their Quran and they know it’s not the religion of peace,” Nehlen told host Susan Knowles on Monday’s episode of “Stand for Truth Radio.” “They know it’s the religion of submission; it is the religion of subjugating others.
