Islam is derived from the Arabic root "Salema": peace, purity, submission and obedience. In the religious sense, Islam means submission to the will of God and obedience to His law: http:://www.barghouti.com/islam/meaning.html
However Islam also has a very political side, that of sharia law and to a growing number of people that aspect predominates over the religious aspect. Ex-Muslim, Ayaan Hirsi Ali has described it as: “Islam is not a religion of peace, it’s a political theory of conquest that seeks domination by any means it can.”
