Yes I understand the root word to mean peace, more wods from the root word:

salam - peace
salima -to be saved or to escape from danger
salama - the stinging of a snake  
Islam - submission
 
So Muslims consider the Torah a piece of Islamic writings? 
John 3
16"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

So the Prince of Peace is Muhammad ibn Abdullah Salallahualaihiwassalam The last Prophet of Allah Our Creator.

No His name is Mohammad and that means - praised one doesn't it? 
 
According to literal theories of honeto we are looking for Mr. Prince of Peace or in arabic, I think - Amir Salam

I think if you were to read about the biography of Muhammad the Prophet of Peace, The Last Messenger of God Almighty, I am sure you will shed some tears like I did.
 
Do you know what was his last words before he died? Ummati...Ummati...Ummati... My ummah (people), my Ummah, my ummah. (he was so worried about the future of his ummah)
 
And do you know who is his ummah? Those people who were born after he was born. That means us, you and me included.

Minuteman -
 
I wouldn't trust those NEW Bibles.  Many things have been modified, or completely changed. 
 
For example, one version "The Everyday Bible" published by Word Publishing  has changed the infamous "666 talents of gold" given to Solomon as "50,000  pounds of gold." [1 Kings 10:14]   Not very reliable. I wouldn't be surprised if the Biblical computer programmes were just as unreliable.

Youdon't have as arguement there.  The Bible is about understanding, not just memorizing in a language that you may not understand. 

LOL!!  Putting the language in to something everyone can understand is the beauty of the Bible translations.
 
Most people that have the "The Everyday Bible" understand that it is just that an everyday common language Bible.  More translations mean a deeper understanding.
 
 
Each year Solomon received gold weighing 666 talents, not including revenues from merchants and traders and the Arabian kings and governors of the land.  This equals about 50,000 pounds of gold.  This would be about equal to the weight of ten golden Chevrolet Suburbans or heavy duty pickup trucks.  If gold is valued at $250 per troy ounce, this part of Solomon's yearly income had a value of $182 million.

If someone translate a book from a translation, the meaning may be lost due the different ideas of the translators.
 
When translating the Quran, translators need to understand the language of the Quran and using this as the basic or foundation for translating. If a person translate what Asad wrote or Sheikh Yusof Qardawi wrote, the meaning may be totally different from the originals.
 
People translate books into other languages using the original as their foundation.  But this is not true for the Bible.
