Is Islam a Religion of Peace?

From NPR:

“In the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks, President George W. Bush characterized Islam as a religion of peace. Many people agree with that belief, saying the vast majority of Muslims live peaceful lives.

But others counter that the roots of Islam include violent leaders, teachings and scripture.

A team of experts argued both sides of the motion ‘Islam Is a Religion of Peace’ in a recent Intelligence Squared U.S. debate. Two argued in favor and two against.”

The debate in Oxford style and the outcome is determined, not by who is right or wrong, but by who is the most persuasive.  So tune in for this very interesting and balanced look at one of the major religions of the world.
