Exactly.

I guess this depends on what you mean by "peace".

You believe most Moslems vision of peace is different than yours?

True, there's more than one definition of peace. Most of these people are disgusted and fed up with the terrorist/extremist elements in their societies and have a far more tolerant and sophisticated worldview. They want to work with others, not against them.

I don't mean to be too confrontational, but what are you intending to imply with a statement like that? That most Muslims aren't peaceful people who abhor the extremists such as bin Laden as much as non-Muslims. Or that their definition of peace isn't actually peace but violence?

A terrific example of a peaceful Moslem is the Saudi princess who's the main character in Jean Sasson's "Princess Trilogy", whom she calls Sultana. Sultana wrote a beautiful letter about her struggles with sadness and shame over 9/11. It's here.
