Tenth Battle

This week an old friend and Iron Blog regular returns to Challenge once more. Chris in NH first faced our original Iron Blogger Green, Robin Pratt over the Topic of Torture. It was a position he was not entirely in favor of or comfortable with, and so I am bringing him back to Challenge once more.

Iron Blogger Republican, Dan Champion, you have been called to Battle. May you uphold the honor and glory of my Iron Bloggers and claim victory in your first outing.

If memory serves me right, one of the aims I had in mind for Iron Blog was to make it a place where any idea, no matter how controversial, can be debated. Our second Battle, Gay Marriage, was our most controversial Battle so far. This week, that will change.

We debated the various possible causes of Terrorism last week, but still one question lingers in my mind. What role does religion play in it all? And so the Topic for the Battle is this:

Islam

In contrast to the broad scope of our last Battle, I wish for this one to be very specific. Is Islam a Religion of Peace, or a Religion of Jihad? Let us see what our Combatants have to say.

Allez Debate!

(NOTE: The Topic this week is highly volatile, but I will expect and demand the same level of civility in the comments as always, regardless of your stance on this issue. Chris and Dan are doing this to create a dialogue on a very touchy issue, and I will not tolerate flame wars.)
