A fascinating discussion as to whether Islam is a 'religion of peace'

A fascinating Intelligence Squared USA discussion from 2008 between proponents Zeba Khan & Maajid Nawaz and opponents Ayaan Hirsi Ali & Douglas Murray.

If you can't find an hour and 45 minutes to watch the whole video, do watch from 1:13:00 - pretty cut and dried? Douglas Murray's summation from 1:38:15 should be a much watch for western politicians who glibly state that 'Islam is a religion of peace' without any real knowledge of the facts.

The audience would seem to agree with me:
In favour - 41%  Against - 25%  Undecided - 34%
In favour - 36%  Against - 55%  Undecided - 9%
