ALAN KISTLER DOESN'T KNOW THE MEANING OF THE WORD ISLAM (OR MUSLIM)

Yet this would-be comics historian thought to write the following comment about a Florida gun manufacturer who designed a model with a bible verse upon it to discourage Muslims from using it:

Well maybe the person you speak of doesn't know what it means, Mr. Kistler, but then, what about you? Do you know the meaning of the word Islam? Well then, let me school you a bit. It translates in Arabic as "submission" and "surrender", and let me point you to a Muslim in Britain named Anjem Choudhary who confirms it in his very own words (H/T: Jihad Watch):
Although both George W. Bush and Barack Obama have declared that Islam is a religion of peace, Choudary begs to differ.

A Religion of Peace?

“You can’t say that Islam is a religion of peace,” Choudary told CBN News. “Because Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission. So the Muslim is one who submits. There is a place for violence in Islam. There is a place for jihad in Islam.”

Choudary is the leader of Islam4UK, a group recently banned in Britain under the country’s counter-terrorism laws. He wants Islamic Sharia law to rule the United Kingdom and is working to make that dream a reality.
So now you know what it means, Mr. Kistler. But I guess it means zero to your dismissive mindset, eh? And I guess you're not worried about Islamofascists using guns for violence against infidels either? What a shame. He just can't appreciate some creativity if that's what can help to prevent jihadists from using certain companies' products and leaving the company staff burdened with guilt that their products were used for evil. Let us be clear: no sane business worker wants to be blamed for giving an enemy rope to hang them with. And if the Florida gunmaker thinks this could help prevent their products from being exploited for evil, then they should be given some credit for trying to find ways to keep their weapons from getting into the wrong hands. Kistler, alas, doesn't have the courage to thank them for their efforts.

Hi, this is Alan Kistler. I'm not a would-be comics historian. It's been how I earn money, along with writing books, for about 8 years now. Instead of spending your energy on writing a blog post that was wrong in the first sentence (which isn't very astute), you could've just asked me this question directly. :-) In any event, thanks for reading and plugging my Twitter, I always appreciate it.
