Peace comes through amity, comity, deterrence, victory, or surrender. When you have intransigent enemies -- enemies who are dedicated to the demise of your civilization -- the only available options are deterrence, victory, or surrender. When those enemies are fanatical, the only options are victory or surrender.
Those who merely wish for peace -- but who are unwilling to fight for it (or support the fight for it) -- have opted for the peace of surrender.
