Europe and Islam by Bernard Lewis

Terror is part of the larger issue of violence and of its use in the cause of religion. Islam does not, as some would have us believe, share the pacifist aspirations of early Christianity. Islamic theology and law—like Christian practice if not theory—recognize war as a fact of life and in certain situations commend and even require it. In the traditional view, the world is divided into two—the House of Islam where Islamic rule and law prevail, and the rest, known as the Dar al-Harb, the House of War. Later, for a while, some intermediate categories were introduced, to designate regimes with limited autonomy under Muslim suzerainty.
